The major drawback of this book is that its hard to find! I was first shown this book by a German tourist and friend I met during a trip to Brazil. I perused the book and, being a first time traveller to Brazil, so many of the slang phrases and cultural descriptions rang so true. I knew I had to have it. I found one copy being sold by an independent vendor on Amazon and immediately bought it. Even though it was over-priced... after so much searching for I knew I had to grab a copy while its available.
**** PS: THIS BOOK IS VERY POPULAR IN BRAZIL AS IT CAN BE USED IN THE REVERSE WAY TO DEMONSTRATE EQUIVALENT COLLOQUAL ENGLISH EXPRESSIONS TO PORTUGUESE SPEAKERS. SINCE THE BOOK IS (AT THE TIME I AM WRITING THIS) OVER $100, I WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW THAT YOU IF YOU ARE PLANNING A TRIP TO A MAJOR CITY IN BRAZIL, JUST WAIT AND BUY THE BOOK WHEN YOU GET THERE FOR A FRACTION OF THIS PRICE.
For example, you won't find these expressions in other phrase books: "Feel free to ask any questions at anytime during the presentation." "Could you send me any literature you have on...?" "Am I boring you?" "They made me feel very welcome." "I can't bring myself to throw it away." "I forget my own name sometimes." In this book, you will find them with many other similar ways of saying them. And they are very useful!
Um ótimo trabalho!
(Mr. Martinez has done many collaborations with other language experts and now, as far as I know, there are "Como dizer(escrever) tudo" series on English, French, Spanish, Italian, German and even Chinese. I even bought the French version because it was much more useful than most other "how to write in French" books.
