"Four whip-smart, successful French women poke fun at the stereotypes of the "Parisienne" and give genuine beauty and lifestyle tips, recipes, and fashion dos and don'ts . . . De Maigret's photography and a witty, wise, often tongue-in-cheek delivery puts the reader on a sure path to achieving the French femme's je ne sais quoi."
"You don't have to be French to be a Parisian."
"Very, very funny. While reading, I actually felt chicer, wittier and trï¿½s Parisienne. I was laughing out loud by the end."
