A great book, covering all sorts of aspects of the global economy, social economics, and human psychology. It's 20 hours but you'll stay enthralled the whole way.
This book is very entertaining, especially if you enjoy good food (French), excellent wine (red Bordeaux), travel (California and Provence). The story is somewhat lightweight but a fun read.
I thought the reader was excellent in making the various characters come alive, especially the ones in France. Definitely recommended for the right group. It's more fun if you've been to Marseille, and we just returned from a month's trip.
Very well written and well read study of all the various factors which contribute to people being attracted to each other. These include voice, hair, body mass and body ratios, and dozens of others.
We have always enjoyed the New York Magazine articles by Gael Greene, dating back to the late 70's. This book is basically her autobiography, telling about her encounters with famous food (and other) people over the last 30 years. She is an excellent chronicler of the New York social scene, especially as it relates to food. It's interesting now to hear the "behind the scenes" story of some of the articles we read in the 70's and 80's, when we lived in Philadelphia and would make regular trips to NYC for food and plays.
It will help if you're a "foodie" when you listen to this book, and there is a lot of sex involved also, as she tells about her various escapades. But I loved it and listened to it in two days.
