Présentation de l'éditeur

In the tradition of the New York Times bestseller Stuff White People Like, a tongue-in-cheek homage to Parisians.

To be mistaken for a Parisian, readers must buy the newspaper Le Monde, fold it, and walk. Then sit at a café and make phone calls. Be sure to order San Pellegrino, not any other kind of fizzy water. They shouldn't be surprised when a waiter brings out two spoons after they order le moelleux au chocolat- it is understood that the dessert is too sinfully delicious not to share. Go to l'île Saint-Louis-all Parisians are irredeemably in love with that island. Feel free to boldly cross the street whenever the impulse strikes-pedestrian crosswalks are too dangerous. If they take a cruise on the Seine, they will want to stand outside, preferably with their collar popped up. If they want to decorate, may we suggest the photographs of Robert Doisneau? To truly be cool in Paris, own an iPhone, wear Converse sneakers, and order sushi. And as they stroll through the Luxembourg Gardens, remember-they can't go wrong wearing black.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Funny Cliche 29 septembre 2013
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
The book is quite interesting in showing some phenomenon that you can easily came across in Paris. For instance, parisians don't follow the pedestrian lights and they love to wear black. It is a funny cliche that would make you laugh in the metro.

Though some parisians might not agree with the author, I think the book provides a good starting point to talk about Paris with a parisian!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Insightful and humorous. 10 août 2011
Par Stephen Hagata - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I loved this book. I am a francophile, to be sure and love Paris and its history and culture. That being said, Olivier Magny has written a book that presents Parisians in a style that is readily understandable to Americans who so often travel to Paris unaware that they are in a very foreign culture. What made the book especially fun was Olivier's tongue-in-cheek humor as he gently mocked his fellow Parisians. Such insight and wit make it very hard to believe that English is not his native tongue. Highly recommended.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Stuff I Like About This Book (and its author) 3 décembre 2011
Par PJ Adams - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I sought out this book on Amazon after seeing it mentioned in the news somewhere. After reading it, I visited Paris and happened to wander over to O Chateau, Olivier Magny's very cool wine bar, and had a warm chat with the author himself over a great Bordeaux. Not only is Olivier's book hilarious and biting in its laser-like take on Parisians vs. "All the Others," Olivier himself is a delightful, droll Parisian who doesn't take himself too seriously and also pours some great wine! You won't find any other book exactly like this, so if you want to get the insider's view, pick up this book AND visit O Chateau which is definitely a happening place.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Always wanted to get back at that snooty Parisian waiter in that little café? 5 juillet 2011
Par Wulfstan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Then "Stuff Parisians Like: Discovering the Quoi in the Je Ne Sais Quoi" is the book for you. Part homage, part satire, part serious and part tongue-in-cheek, the author lambastes what he considers the decline in Parisian sophistication.

Well, as it turns out the products description choose the same quote from the promo matrial as I did. So here's another of the authors sallys, this time about Americans: "Parisians have a bit of a different physiology. Things like a certain inability to smile are quite well known expressions of this phenomenon. Some are much lesser known: an interesting experience when chatting with a Parisian is to place the words "Les Américains" in a sentence. These two words put together - in any imaginable sentence - immediately trigger a chemical reaction in the Parisian's brain. When hearing the phrase "Les Américains", the Parisian will implacably lose track of his previous ideas to just be taken over by one overpowering thought. That is: "Oui, mais les Américains, ils sont cons".

There is no exception to that rule. Americans are all stupid. End of the story. The fact that America is the most successful and probably the most creative country in the world should come as no argument. The fact that all Parisians deliberately wear American clothes, watch American movies, listen to American music, use American words or fantacize about American celebrities either. Americans are fat, stupid and ugly. Period.....

It would be impolite at that point to bring to the Parisian's attention that he starts to sound like the stupid American he despises so much. Plus, despite his obvious in-depth knowledge of America, chances are he might not get the joke..."

The book takes jabs at French bureaucracy, feigned angst and faux intellectualism. But he also has nods for other aspects of Parisian culture and life.

Not quite laugh-out-loud funny, I still had my full quota of grins and chuckles.

Oliver Magny is a Parisian sommelier, who teaches at a wine-tasting school.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 200 pages of laughing. 25 novembre 2011

A brilliant book, hilarious!
If the saying "Every joke has a bit of truth in it" makes sense, this book is no kidding has 99% truth.
It's funny and pleasure to read. I enjoyed it till the very last page.
Divided into small chapters with bottom lines and useful expressions in French, this is in a way a guide book and a key to mysterious character and phenomenon of Parisians.
The book is written by a gently sarcastic insider, an author who really knows what he is talking about.
Being bona fide Parisian himself and having a great sense of humour he puts a magnifying mirror in front of fellow Parisians and invite us to lough out loud together.
And Parisians are not so distant anymore, they are human beings after all, just the lucky ones to live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Stuff Parisians Like: Nothing!! A fun read 15 décembre 2011
Par Peggy Halsegan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
The author is hilarious and gives you an insider (and wry) view of Parisians. Essentially, they apparently like to be miserable but manage to look chic while wallowing in their misery. Surprises also abound --why don't French women get fat? Cuz they don't eat! Learn more and laugh with this witty book.

In Paris, enthusiasm is considered a mild form of retardation. If you are happy, you must be stupid. On the other hand, if you complain, you must be smart. &quote;
