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.

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.

Enjoyable

Easy listen, not extraordinary, but still entertaining. This book is great to listen to on a long drive or while cleaning house. There are a few times throughout the book where a completely different narrator reading a completely different book interrupts her story, but eventually gets back to the original book. Not her fault, definitely a technical issue

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.

Very romantic<br /> and inspirational book

I love Jamie's books and this one is no exception. I think that she brings the topics in her previous books on a higher level. I really enjoyed it.
