Overview

Did you shudder when Congress renamed French fries? Or sigh when the French rejected the European constitution they had written themselves?

Jules Eden and Alex Clarke provide fifty painstakingly researched, wittily written reasons to reinforce your views. From the portraits of leaders past and present to the bad dream of the Tour de France, this book answers every question you have about the French except one: Why only fifty?
