"O Brasil não é para principiantes."

(Brazil is for beginners)

            -Tom Jobim


So you are going to Brazil for the World Cup. Congratulations!

This Cup promises to be like none other before it. Afterall, this is the greatest football tournament in the world. After June 12th, where else would you rather be than the spiritual home of football? It will be one of the greatest parties the world has ever seen.

BUT - While it promises to be the most celebratory Cup in history, it might also be the most contested one. We are not only talking about what will happen on the pitch, but also everywhere else in Brazil as well. This World Cup is undoubtedly controversial.


Our goal in writing and sharing these eBooks is to help  you navigate the trickiness that you will encounter in you time in Brazil. The better you are able to cut through (or avoid) the difficulties you might encounter, the more you can enjoy your time in Brazil, take in the games, and support your team.

To help you do this, we’ve scoped out all the sites and host cities, and got a lot of good info from our local friends. We also bring to bear our collective wisdom from years spent in Brazil.

The result is a set of 14 short eBooks, which will give you all the info you need…and quickly.

12 of the titles are on each of the 12 World Cup Hosts cities.

In addition, we’ve written 1 on Brazil as a whole.

Lastly, the 14th title will teach you how to converse with any Brazilian about soccer.

For each of the 12 Quick/Fast guides we’re created for each host city, we’ve provided a bunch of city and region specific information, such as:

- Arriving at the Major Transit Hubs

- The Stadium Site

- Getting Around the City

- Staying Healthy and Safe

- The History and Unique Culture of the City

- The Neighborhoods and Attractions of the City

- The Food, Music, and Overall Feeling you will Encounter in each City

- Tips from Locals on the BEST things to do in their city.


This title covers all of the stuff you’ll find in general in Brazil, across ALL of the cities. So, it is a critical companion to any city-based books you may use.

All of our titles are “Quick/Fast” guides, so they are easy to locate by searching those terms.

Please note: we are publishing these titles right now. If you don’t see the title you are looking for, it will be available by June 8th.

Ok então, Beleza!

We are excited for your trip of a lifetime to the World Cup in Brazil - and we are so happy we can join you too!

“There are 2 types of people, those who haven’t been to Brazil, and those who are planning their next trip.”
