"Like a fabulous friend sharing her secrets, Mireille divulges, encourages and inspires. And she does it with joy." (Pamela Druckerman)
"French women have incredible style and confidence. Mireille is an inspiration and her book is a must-read for any woman wanting to look better and ultimately feel more beautiful." (Bobbi Brown)
"French Women Don’t Get Facelifts is [...] ostensibly as light as a meringue but actually as satisfying as Guilano’s recipe for duck with caramelised mango [...] It’s a “no” not only to the scalpel and Botox needle, but also to fad diets and costly anti-ageing serums [...] It’s a Oui, Oui, Oui to facials [and]diets “where nothing is restricted but everything is encouraged in moderation”." (The Times)
"C'est magnifique!" (Today (US))
"It's hard to resist a chance to tackle the wrinkles in your self-esteem with Guiliano's wholly engaging take on how women of 40 and upwards can "attack" the ageing process with "attitude and style", whether through skincare secrets and fashion tips or the role of relationships and the importance of relaxation. Mais... it's about so much more than botox. I was completely won over by it." (Caroline Sanderson, The Bookseller)
From the 2 million copy, bestselling author of French Women Don’t Get Fat, the ultimate guide to the secrets of French women’s enviable ability to age better than anyone else.See all Product Description

Not only do French women have facelifts, we are told, they also go in for Botox, fillers, injections and heaven knows what. I was so disappointed with this book! I was hoping for a cheerful, philosophical take on ageing "with attitude" - the attitude being one of acceptance rather than denial. But although the author says she thinks many such procedures are extreme, she doesn't rule them out for herself and says she doesn't blame anyone for having them done. I guess that's because she's writing mainly for an American readership and she wants to have it both ways to maximize her sales. A tease? No, more an outright deception.
The rest of the book is common sense advice. Don't smoke, eat healthily, get some exercise, protect your skin from the sun. If you've lived in a cave for the past 20 years and haven't read a magazine or newspaper in that time, some of this may be new to you. Otherwise, forget it. I regret wasting my money on this book.
Mireille Guiliano who previously wrote "French Women Don't Get Fat" that was highly successful in the US, with this book had complicated task to write something equally interesting, and yet not to repeat herself.
In her new book she offers advices about all the problems that older age inevitably brings, starting with the one to which she devoted a special chapter funny called "Assessing Gravity".
Guiliano speaks about dressing, care for your skin that needs special care given to the age, the ways how to decently apply your makeup, about diet that can be recommended for you to look healthier and younger, exercises that will improve your physical fitness - in short, inside you can find lots of things that will make you feel more feminine, beautiful and attractive regardless of your age...
And therefore it can be rightfully said that the author didn't fail in comparison to the anticipation of the new release, though her new book can be considered as a logical continuation of the first bestseller, two titles that are best to be read together.
I bought this book as gift for one special elderly person, but I didn't manage not to go through its 300-odd pages that are really fast to read because of the accessible ways of presenting the topic.
Therefore, I believe that you also won't be disappointed because it's an interesting title that can be recommended.
I read it twice in case i was missi g something, but sadly not. A very dissaponting book by Mireille, unless you are American of course!
Being older than her but still wanting to make the best of my looks and stay fit and healthy, I found this book easy to read and full of helpful advice and anecdotes. I highly recommend it.
