This is Portland is a first-hand look at a city that people can't seem to stop talking about. It's a guidebook of sorts, but not to restaurants and sightseeing. Instead, Alexander Barrett is your friendly guide to the quirky characters and atmosphere of Portland, Oregon and how fun, beautiful, and ridiculous it can be. With its approachable, often hilarious tone, this book is perfect for anyone who wants to learn more about bikes, beards, beers, rain, and everything else important about the city you've heard you should like.

Hilarious, and spot on. If only Barrett had also talked about how composting and recycling is compulsory in Portland, so much so that when you travel, you bring your recycling back with you, because you cannot bear to throw it away, it might have been perfection. A perfect little gift for friends who live in PDX, or who want to move there.
