A collection of short essays on how to buy ?the best? or at least the most expensive. Written with Mayle's usual light touch and humour. Not as fulfilling a read as the two books about setting up home in Provence.

Format: Paperback
Mayle's book on the best that money can buy is like living the lives of the rich without paying the large sums of money. His wordpainting is so vivid, I imagine I'm sitting in a room furnished with astronomically priced antiques, sampling caviar with my 50 servants by my side. Perfectly charming and entertaining. I recommend this book highly.

A most interesting read from a guy who so excels at his craft. Mr Mayle is always entertaining and such good value for money.

I would-t particularly recommend it as I feel it-s not up to the standard of his other books.
`lots of bits and pieces.

How to succeed in the world of the rich, or perhaps in the world of those who wish to have only the best, even in they can only afford a little of it. He knows his subject, of course, and his writing is superb, sarcastic and very funny. I recommend this book.

I thought it was a fictional story and found to my disappointment that it was just about someone else's view point on certain aspects of daily life, not my cup of tea at all.
