Not worth a penny as a guidebook
on 13 May 2014
If you have a little englander's view of the French you may find this 'guide' amusing - I found it read like the ramblings of an occasional visitor who fancied themselves an expert. Lot of definitive statements about 'The French' as if they all come off a production line. As a practical guide it's of no use to anybody as there are so few precise locations mentioned. The most specific recommendation I noticed for restaurants as I skimmed faster and faster through this drivel was that the best thing to order in parisian restaurants is frites and crudites! Yeah, salad and chips, don't try any of that horrible french muck! That's pretty much the tone of this guide. Avoid.
