Even priced @ $0.00, this is a questionable buy. VERY basic guide......20 minutes trolling Trip Advisor blogs would yield more information. However, considering that the above.....keep it on the Kindle

4.0 out of 5 stars The Hotel Alternative, July 14, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you have been considering renting an apartment on your nexrt trip to Paris, this guide offers very good, practical and accurate information. The author attempts to highlight each arrondissement's virtues and understated attractions while still being resonably candid about the pitfalls of each. My wife and I learned a lesson with our first apartment, a studio in the 3rd Arrondissement portion of the Marais. The Guide discusses the discrepancies between American and French concepts of size, etc. We would have been well advised to read this guide before booking a 19 sq meter studio. The narrative is enjoyablee reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars And You Thought It Couldn't Have Been Worse., July 14, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book will require your full commitment. It is both an extensive read and relentless in its ability to relentlessly shock the reader with its account of the hysterical, psychotic, and ultimately banal groundings of the Nazis and of course, the monster that was Hitler. A tremendous achievement by a writer who was that fly on the wall throughout the nightmare that was Nazism.

5.0 out of 5 stars Off the Well Beaten Path of Left Bank Romanticism., July 14, 2015
A truly pleasant break from the treacly accounts of the Lost Generation et al on the Left Bank. Fortunately, "Shocking Paris" is not the stuff of travel guide lore. These artists labored under so many negative, xenophobic pressures and managed to transcend & survuve them. A sober account of the energy being created in Montparnasse during the period between the wars. A good read..

Very nice survey of Paris brasseries.......most unmentioned in major travel guides. Heavy on atmosphere, less about the food, which is fine......brasseries are style, ambiance, history

5.0 out of 5 stars The Mother of All Knife Blocks, February 26, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you have acquired a bevy of knives over the years as my wife and I have, this block from Wusthof fills the bill. We have several chef's knives that typically cannot be accommodated in more modest knife block configurations. Massive yet not so much if well positioned on a counter.

Magnetic strips are very convenient, but over time we have come to find them less so, as once crowded, taking and replacing knives becomes a bit nerve wracking. Storing sheathed knives in a drawer is fine, but not as handy.

The block is solidly built and beautifully finished.It has enough depth to accommodate the largest chef's knives.....I own an 8" Shun, an 8" Sabatier, a 10 inch Global , and .......... a 12" MAC. That behemoth fits quite nicely.

The block also can house a pair of shears, steak knives, and can also accept Japanese Nigiri blades and/or a small cleaver. Very versatile piece of equipment. At first it seems like overkill...but if you have lots of knives it's a Godsend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Is there an extreme Nationalist in the House?, July 30, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A thorough, authoritative, review of the banalities of nationalism and demagoguery French style in the torturous period between the wars in Europe. A refreshing and sobering foil to the mass distributed treacly concept of France as an overly romanticized theme park of nostalgia and assorted icons.

Furst really captures the mood between the wars in his varying European settings. The character range is quite broad.....the reader gets a view in the fears of the upcoming war and it's effect on place through many different eyes and minds.

Frankly, a somewhat predictable and tedious book . Did not enjoy it, though I do not doubt the author's experiences. Seemed cliched.
