It's written with Parisians in mind not us and dishes all the dirt on where to thread your eyebrows, fix your place up super-Parisian, have dinner in a one-table resturant, pretend you are a connoisseur, attend a crazy trial (yep you read right), dress like a VIP, rediscover forgotten veggies (Oh yes please), turn your kids into little Picassos, laugh out loud(?), be a guinea pig for a future 3-star-chef etc. bla bla bla.
Try out their newsletter first if you're not convinced.
Altogether a delight.
First, if you are looking for a boring, run of the mill travel guide that compares cafes and tells you what sneakers are the most comfortable to stomp around the l'arc de triomphe in, then this book is not what you are looking for. However, if you are seeking a charming peek into feminine, Parisienne culture and the tucked away fancies that the French themselves would snag up in a heartbeat then this is the book you want. Think Audrey Hepburn, not Rick Steves. The truth is, this book appeals to those with distinct taste and who want to create a litle ooh la la magic in every detail of their lives. Where else would you find authors who recommends a subscription for handwritten letters from strangers as a way to improve your French. (These are the little somethings found both in their book and newsletters.) I have been to Paris several times, and this book helps me keep the Parisienne spirit alive whether in LA or Paris. In fact I even rented an adorable flat recommended by the newsletter, and it was the most sparkling trip yet! Buy this book and be smitten.

I love the book. I just got it and immediately sat down to read it. The illustrations are great. I will dream of Paris.Published on July 6, 2014 by Mystery Girl
It was not at all what I expected. Full of cartoons and silly suggestions. It's not really a guide at all.Published on February 4, 2014 by Amazon Customer
