French women not only stay slim while relishing life to the fullest, they also have the longest life expectancy in the Western world. Now Mireille shows us how they attune themselves to the rhythms of the year. Here are four seasons' worth of strategies for shopping, cooking, and exercising, as well as some pointers for looking effortlessly chic. Whether your aim is finding two scoopfuls of pleasure in one of crème brûlée or entertaining beautifully when time is short and expectations are high, the inspiration you need is here. Taking us from her childhood in Alsace-Lorraine to her summers in Provence and her busy life in New York and Paris, this audiobook of scrumptious Gallic wisdom and wit shows us how anyone anywhere can develop a healthy, holistic lifestyle.
In a voice that entranced more than a million honorary French women, Mireille demonstrates that there is indeed an art to joyful living. French Women for All Seasons is an essential guide to savoring all life's moments: in moderation, in season, and above all, with pleasure.

Probably on the lower end. But, it's because there are recipes in the book. It's difficult to listen to recipes as a 'book'. Additionally, it would be extra difficult to cook from a verbal recipe. However, the book does have an accompanying .pdf that I printed and cooked from. All of the recipes I've tried are delicious!
It's the same caliber as her other books. As I stated, it's difficult to listen to recipes. I've enjoyed all of Mireille's books.
To enjoy the nuances of recipes and cooking. To let go of being so mechanical about it and appreciate the colors, smells and seasons of your ingredients.
