Awesome!

I loved this book. The narrator was excellent. I loved the ideas on parenting presented in the book. Not sure how realistic they are, since I don't have kids and can't try them out. The author's ideas were definitely a fresh and different perspective on things than I had ever considered. I found myself nodding vigorously in agreement throughout the entire book, as so much of what she said was refreshing and I agreed with the philosophy behind it all.

How to age with attitude and style

Would you listen to French Women Don't Get Facelifts again? Why?

Yes. There was a lot of information here and it was presented in a conversational, fun way.

What other book might you compare French Women Don't Get Facelifts to and why?

French Women Don't Get Fat, What French Women Know

What does Mireille Guiliano bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Her accent is charming and adds to the tone of the book.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I enjoyed that Mireille is open about her own struggles with weight, menopause, and aging. She confirms that certain feelings and fears are universal.

Any additional comments?

There is nothing really earth shattering or new here, but it is enjoyable and inspiring to listen to and gave me several ideas for changing my lifestyle, attitude, wardrobe, and skin care routine as I age.

Contrived and “plagaristically” familiar

This book had a feeling that most of it was lifted from the famous “French Women Don’t Get Fat“ series. In addition, the American narrator had a horrible accident in French that was grating to the ear. I find it very hard to believe she spent time in France… Finally, I found the book and her concepts on elegance and sophistication to be vacuous.

Poor Narration

I couldn't make it through this book. Besides the arrogant " attitude" narration , she.sounded like she was reading something she didn't write. And, why does this woman who preaches such a healthy lifestyle look so unhealthy in person. Her skin and hair are thin. My advice for these so called health Gurus is say more prayers to God and treat your body the way God created.
