    1. Not a bad easy read for the plane ride to the place Definitely recommend if you are looking for a light read before your trip to Rio

    2. How To Be a Carioca is an awesome blend of dark humor and information on the culture, language, and life in Rio de Janeiro information that you would not find in any normal guidebook I also find it very interesting that the author is American by birth but has lived most of her life in Rio de Janeiro, as a real Carioca resident of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.This is a tongue in cheek description of various social and cultural aspects of life in Rio, with helpful tips on how gringos like us foreigners [...]

    3. It was fun reading this book about people I ve lived with for almost a year A lot of the funny stuff in this book look like a stereotyping thing but guess what, you will definitely find out that those Cariocas, the people of Rio de Janeiro, will be always the first to start those stereotypes about themselves and would agree with most of what is in this book The humor in this book is acceptable and would make you laugh very loud reading a light text written with care supported with good illustrat [...]

    4. This little book is really funny I ve read it when I was staying in Rio de Janeiro for several months and everything is absolutelly true If you know Rio it is hilarious, but also if this city is new for the reader it will give you a good insight of Brazilian culture and for sure it will make you laugh.

    5. I find this little book a gem Not only does it provide you with information that is useful, but I love the humorous writing style with a touch of kind irony The only problem is that after reading it I wish I was in Rio already, but unfortunately that has to wait the meantime I am happy to have this book to bring me closer to what it feels like being in Rio.

    6. It s a slender humorous volume for everyone who ever wondered what it would be like to move to Rio in Brazil Although Brazil s politics and economy have changed since this was written, most of this addresses the kinds of cultural attitudes and behaviors that will probably still be true in 50 years.
