    The nook version of this book is almost a complete waste of money. I say complete because if you DIDN'T purchase it for the "Faces, appearance, and gestures" then you may not be as disappointed. The illustrations on the nook software are the size of postage stamps (if you remember what a postage stamp used to look like). The content is "ok" but you need to be comfortable reading and, I would say SPEAKING French as there are no pronunciation guides. Good idea though

    A good start on avoiding culture shock

    It may be western Europe, but they still do a lot of things differently there. This book is designed to explain, describe and resign the unwary American to how the French expect you to relate to them. Daily politeness, the psychology of salespeople, how to handle a dinner party--all are described clearly and completely. A good choice of book if you are going there for more than a week or two, especially if you will be on your own or in a position where your behavior is particularly important (business or diplomacy). Less necessary if you don't speak the language well.
