NOT a diet book, but a huge call back to simply, simplify, simplify!!!!!

Arrogant and Pretentious

by skyprincess on Nov 4, 2008

I did not care for this book. The author (who lives in New York) makes broad generalizations throughout the book about French women. I tried to imagine myself doing the same about American women--as if we are all alike! The author loves to throw in, on every page no less, French words and phrases instead of WRITING IN ENGLISH ( I get it--you're French!). There is very little said of substance--eat less, exercise more, drink water, enjoy the moment. She also gives advice--like give your children alcohol--which in California will get you arrested. I did not try any of the recipes so perhaps they have some merit, but many appear too high calorie to consider (it is suppose to be a diet book--right?). Anyway, if you are French and enjoy feeling smug about yourself then you are bound to love this book. If you are unfortunately, not French, then maybe there is still hope for your waistline if you pretend to be French. Either way however, I recommend you go ahead and pass on this book.

Excellent book for a Lifestyle change

by litepainter on Aug 7, 2008

I bought two copies of this book on the strong recommendation of my oldest daughter. My other daughter and I read it and both found it helpful, not only for the advice given with humor and tact, but also for the delicious recipes.
