Staff Reviews

Everything you need to know about the throbbing heart of all things hipster, conveniently and concisely presented in one place! There's no need to read it from the beginning - just turn to a random page and learn about one of the many things that make Portland "the best city ever."

— From Emily A.


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.
