  2. If you want to read one book on what Brazil is like today and how it has evolved to the level of acute disparity between the super wealthy and the poor, Brazillionaires is the one Its author, Alex Cuadros, not only learned Portuguese, but also immersed himself into the intricacies of this complex culture, living in Brazil for six years As a former Peace Corps volunteer who served in Brazil many ago, I would have much preferred a book like Brazillionaires as required reading in addition to being [...]
