Very interesting book that compares the French and American parenting and life style. I find myself in many things the French do, cherish and take for granted. However I also see a few things that I have done the American way. I would recommend that to almost all Americans to get a different perspective and understand that there are people/Europeans who are doing things differently/are parenting and living a little different.
Nice comparison to "The Year of Living Biblically" by AJ Jacobs. The preface is even written by AJ Jacobs. This book is very worthwhile reading, I enjoyed it a lot. I liked Ed Dobson's sometimes unconventional opinions and gestures.
