Seven Ages of Paris: Portrait of a City by Alistair Horne
3.0 out of 5 stars Great information, 1 Jun 2013
I have taken tour groups to Paris over 50 times in the last decade and a half. I thought I would update my information and found this book to give me information I found interesting and at times funny. Sadly, the book can be a bit jumbled at times, but I just skimmed through those parts.
I do like the link with British history, which of course is unavoidable.
I would have liked to have read a more flowing story, but that may just be personal choice.
Otherwise a book I would recommend this book to put Paris history into context with European and French history.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clear and concise, 21 Mar 2013
As a student of international relations, this has been a perfect addition to my studies. Often those types of books are written at such a high conceptual and analytical level that it is difficult to plough through the 'rough to get to the green'. But this is well written and simplifies concepts that I have found difficult to grasp in the past. It is also the kind of book I know I will dip into after my studies are complete as it is easy to read. Thank you!
Who Moved My Cheese: An Amazing Way to Deal with C&hellip by Spencer Johnson
5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and deep, 21 Mar 2013
When I was first given this book, it really did change my perception of so many things. It is so simple, so much fun and gives such a wonderful insight into the human psyche. I could identify certain traits within myself and make the changes. I have since bought this book for everyone I have ever worked with. It is so great when a whole team of people understand the concepts of the book - there is so much power and productivity in the workplace. To put it works!
