    Global Shopping Super Suzy

    I took this book on my last trip abroad in May & wished that I had taken several. My fellow travelers borrowed it so much I could barely read it!! Since I was flying to Paris for a week and then on to the French Riviera for another it was perfect.<BR/><BR/>Suzy lived in Paris for 7 years and therefore I have used her Born To Shop books over the past 20 years and I think this one is just that much more.

    Informative, But Not Useful

    I thought this book was informative, but for someone who does not travel, it just isn't practical. I would have rather seen more information how to order online for some of the places overseas. I would not read again nor would I buy it.
