Review quote

'Sympathetic, perceptive, lively and full of information.' - Times Literary Supplement. 'Anyone thinking of offering Portugal as a subject for Mastermind should certainly start here. I learned a lot from the book, and imagine that most readers, Portuguese and foreign alike, would do so too... What comes through very clearly is the author's infectious enthusiasm for her subject and her lively, good-humoured and inquisitive mind.' Cultura.
