    A delightful change...

    French Women for All Seasons was a very easy read, nice little stories to go along with the great recipies. It is a must read for those who have read French Women Don't Get Fat. I read it in an evening, and really enjoyed the touching stories of Mrs. Guiliano's father, mother, and grand parents. Just a fun little book!

    Simple Pleasures

    I'm enjoying this book and her first book French Women Don't Get Fat. I've enjoyed reading about her memories and the simple basics of eating the right food. The recipes are wonderful and very easy to prepare. I've always wanted to use more herbs in my cooking and have enjoyed the wonderful meals I've prepared since I purchased the books. I hope book number three will be coming soon.

    A thoroughly enjoyable and informative read!!!

    French Women For All Seasons is a practical cookbook and lifebook for any one who wants to know what makes French women (and men) so thin and healthy. Most of the recipes use ingredients that are strange to us at first but thinking beyond negative to postive is what lies within the pages of this book. Having just returned from France, it was great to read this book and learn the tips on not only how to stay trim (eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables) but also how to shop and dress on a budget. Style and budget ideas not far-out Parisien runway but down home practical. I especially enjoyed learning the different ways there are to wear a simple scarf! This is one trick that has always eluded me and Ms. Guiliano gives clear and precise directions.
    Read this book or digest this book either way its great fun!

    You read the first, you don't need the second

    I loved the first book but didn't realize the sequel would read as if it's simply trying to recapture the first! I put it down 3/4 the way through.

    Portion Control revealed

    Mireille does it again - after reading 'French Women Never Get Fat' I was very curious what else she could provide to those of us wanting to drop some weight and change our life style. She really adds the little extras, in this book, that do matter - highly recommended for those who loved her first book. Both of her books are highly recommended for those looking for a new way to view food and lose weight.

    French Women Continues

    It is not like a diet book. It is more like an autobiography but pleasant and interesting. It has some receipes but not tons. I liked it as a reading book.
