Publisher's summary

An engaging and practical guide to cultivating inner beauty, mystique, and that irresistible je ne sais quoi

We all know that French women don't get fat. But their famous joie de vivre comes from more than just body type - something anyone can master: the old-fashioned art of finding and keeping romance alive at any age. 

Filled with advice and insights from Parisian women, this delightful guide shows listeners how to cultivate charm and mystique in the age of Tinder and OKCupid - to find lasting romance and connection. From first impressions, lively conversation (in person!), and cultivating social finesse to embracing femininity and communicating with grace and humor, this is age-old advice that's more precious than ever in our disconnected world. For anyone who's tired of texting with strangers who don't write back, here's an inspiring guide to a better way.

Pretentious and disappointing

From the reviews I was expecting this to be an fun and ironic guide on how to be Parisian (specifically how to be charming in a “Parisian” way), but it was just a string of random pretentious thoughts from a rich Francophile. I didn’t learn anything from this book and am very disappointed.

Annoying, self-important and tedious

Reminds me of sitting through a conversation with self-obsessed 25-year-old who just wants to show off their French pronunciation and wax eloquent — while you smile and indulge them with feigned interest because it’s the polite thing to do. I think there were some valuable lessons, but they were teeny kernels and they took waaaaay to long to mine out of the self-indulgent mess.

Not what i expected

This was all about how to find love. I am already married. This talked a lot about flirting. Not looking for that. I don't recommend.

Not what I was expecting

The author goes on endless tangents and then you finish the book (if you make it to the end which is tough!) feeling like you didn’t learn anything substantial. Pretty much a waste of time. I wanted to like it but it was super fluffy and scattered.

Cute, lovely lessons!

Whimsical read. Lovely lessons for women beginning again. Enjoyed the voice over and it kept a nice tempo.

Good, but recording is off in ch 12

Nice; cute; but there is a random clip dubbed over the narrator in chapter 12.

Understanding your fabulous French woman

A very good friend of mine recommended reading the books by this author. It is like getting the secret code book to women of French heritage.

Men, if your woman is listening to this audiobook or reading it I highly recommend you Immerse yourself in joy a few hours and come to understand her a little bit better.

I highly recommend this audiobook.
