Assunto:  Books with mistakes?
 
Mensagem:  In Brazil, I found many English books by Brazilian authors with numerous and terrible mistakes.  Books about idiomatic and slang expressions were the worst.   In Porto Alegre at a conference for EFL teachers, an author introduced to us as "an expert in American slang" made one mistake after another.  The teachers in the audience corrected almost everything he said.

Two of my favorite books are Como nao aprender ingles (Michael Jacobs) and Como dizer tudo em ingles (Ron Martinez).  Both are excellent.
