and where the Hermes shop is. We got an excellent guide book by Brazilians but it had nothing
that your really wanted to know. This book really reveals the soul of the city and the essence of
each area with really nitty gritty details about the funky and the fine things in each. After reading
the other book I felt like, oh this is nice but had no real idea of what I might expect. This book
has given us the flavors, and the magic of each part of the city. I was not really too keen on going
to Sao Paulo until I read this book. And it is not just for the young, hip, club hopper, I am 65
and completely related to it. This might be the best guide book I have ever found. Kudos to the
author. Girl, go other places and write more!
Low and behold, a friend of mine invited me to go watch some Brazilian dancers at some art gallery in L.A., and to my excitement, it was actually a book release party for this book! I wasn't able to talk to the author, but I was able to talk to some people who were actually from Sao Paulo and totally backed the book. I bought it, and it was the greatest travel guide I've ever picked up.
Not only does it look really cool and fit well in my backpack, but it's also not full of the basics you can just find on the Internet. To me, this book showed me the REAL Sao Paulo, for sure. The food and ambience of restaurants were just as described, and they definitely made me feel like I lived in the City--not just visiting.
I really hope they continue the "Total" travel books, because if they give info like this one, I'll never pickup another L.P. again!Total Sao Paulo: A Guide To the Unexpected
It is unbelievably comprehensive with many tags for references and similar postings. I wasn't able to purchase the book in time for my trip, but the website was just as useful.
If you decide to order it, do it three weeks ahead. It took almost that long to get it the mail.
