Capoeira: History, Philosophy, Practice - Bira Almeida

This is my favourite of all the books about capoeira I read in my capoeirista days. Mestre Accordeon not only instructs on the fascinating history and multi-faceted practice of capoeira in all its aspects; he weaves these lessons with poignant, poetic, beautifully written autobiographical story telling, which brings much light and life to his subject.
