From the Back Cover
In the tradition of the New York Times bestseller Stuff White People Like, a tongue-in-cheek homage to Parisians.
To be mistaken for a Parisian, readers must buy the newspaper Le Monde, fold it, and walk. Then sit at a café and make phone calls. Be sure to order San Pellegrino, not any other kind of fizzy water. They shouldn't be surprised when a waiter brings out two spoons after they order le moelleux au chocolat- it is understood that the dessert is too sinfully delicious not to share. Go to l'île Saint-Louis-all Parisians are irredeemably in love with that island. Feel free to boldly cross the street whenever the impulse strikes-pedestrian crosswalks are too dangerous. If they take a cruise on the Seine, they will want to stand outside, preferably with their collar popped up. If they want to decorate, may we suggest the photographs of Robert Doisneau? To truly be cool in Paris, own an iPhone, wear Converse sneakers, and order sushi. And as they stroll through the Luxembourg Gardens, remember-they can't go wrong wearing black. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Top Customer Reviews
The author is a gently sarcastic bona fide Parisian himself, a Parisian business school graduate and a guy with a great wry sense of humour. Parisians are not so distant anymore, they are just as human and messed up as the rest of us. They just live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
There is kind of a sameness to the individual sections, though. Kind of like when a newspaper columnist has a compilation book, it's fine when you read the column twice a week but all at once you see how similar they all are. Read one every couple of days and you'll enjoy it more.
