Any additional comments?

I listened to this soon after moving to France from the U.S. (Based on a recommendation from a friend). While I found it to be entertaining and it certainly contains some interesting insights into French culture, I also found it to be a rather narrow vision of France -- one that is restricted to rather privileged/wealthy people living in Paris and maybe slightly outdated (or at least very traditional). I found myself walking around anticipating rudeness and judgement from the French based on this book that never really came. So I'd say this is an interesting read but maybe not a good taste of what life in France will hold for anyone else.

Well written and compelling, this book sucks you in from the very beginning. Very informative (and terrifying) insights into the NSA and Edward Snowden's story. A great listen!
