Fun, intelligent and informative. Very highly recommended.

I think I have learnt more about France and the French by reading this book than I did in ten years of studying French at school or from numerous trips to Paris. From the origin of bidets (and what they are for) to whether French women shave to whether France is really an egalitarian society, the writer identifies the "facts" you thought you knew, and then examines the reality in a witty, informative and hugely-enjoyable style. I have already recommended it to my Francophile (and French!) friends.
