Review

"It's hard not to be enlivened by a Ýweight-control¨ book that celebrates both chocolate and bread, and espouses such wisdom as 'Life without pasta? Perish the thought.'"
-Lily Burana, "Washington Post Book World"
"The perfect book for the more literate dieter . . . A blueprint for building a healthy attitude toward food and exercise . . . Full of down-to earth advice . . . We'd all be thinner (and happier) if we followed it."
-Miriam Wolf, "San Francisco Chronicle"
"You've heard it before . . . But somehow, when the advice comes from Mireille Guiliano, you actually listen. A perfect, slim (and slimming) read for dieters and bon vivants alike."
-"Marie Claire"
"Ah, Paris, the ideal destination for museum-hopping, couture shopping-and quick weight loss? "Mais oui," insists Mireille Guiliano . . . For those who can't hop a plane whenever their zippers won't close . . . her new memoir-cum-'nondiet' book Ýis¨ filled with slimming secrets."
-Kim Hubbard, "People"
"She spurs readers to give up the guilt and dieting extremes, to eat smarter and more joyfully . . . Readers can practically hear the rustling of fallen leaves beneath the narrator's feet as she forages for mushrooms . . . Her writing, like her three-meals-a-day diet, is all part of her joie de vivre."
-Rosemary Feitelberg, "Women's Wear Daily"
"Delightful . . . Hands down, this is the best of the newest crop of weight-control books."
-Nanci Hellmich, "USA Today"
"The past few years have been dominated by 'scientific' diets . . . I welcome this break from the usual kind of quick-fix diet book . . . Will this book transform one's eating habits? Its good sense is unanswerable-and, personally, Ilove the bit about not going to the gym."
-Lynne Truss, bestselling author of "Eats, Shoots & Leaves," "The Times" (London)
"Part Proustian memoir, part guide to living well, part recipe for Miracle Leek Soup, this book announces its distance from the Zone, the Atkins and all the rest on the very first page . . . Even the most skeptical and envious woman will find it hard to hold out against the charms of a beautifully written book that features both chocolate and love as key ingredients in a balanced diet."-Allison Pearson, "The Daily Telegraph" (London)
"Mireille Guiliano's book is slender, elegant, well-spoken, sensible, and unembarrassed by the frank embrace of stratagems-just like the French women whom she holds up to the reader to admire and, if we can, to emulate." -Adam Gopnik, author of "Paris to the Moon
"
"I recognized things from my own French background and discovered quite a bit more. An important and fascinating book for all those people out there who've ridden the vicious diet roller coaster to failure." --Nicole Miller
"Not only delicious, but a true story from one of the greatest ladies in the world." --Chef Emeril Lagasse
""French Women Don't Get Fat" is not only charming and witty, but useful. It made me want to run out and buy a pound of leeks and a bottle of Champagne!" --Sharon Boorstin, author of "Cooking for Love "and "Let Us Eat Cake"
