"Atlantico Books was recommended to me by a friend and teacher; I was pleasantly surprised by the comprehensive and straight-forward website. I searched many retailers to find European Portuguese materials -- all to no avail. I sent an email to Atlantico books and they were immensely helpful. They humored my attempts to communicate in Portuguese and helped me to decide what product would best suit my studies. Most of all, there is a sense of security I did not experience with other sellers. Other sellers are never as responsive; I trust Atlantico books. I know I have found the premier resource of Portuguese literature and teaching and student material. I highly recommend Atlantico books to others!" Adam Mahler Portuguese student, Bedford, NY
