3.0 étoiles sur 5 Broad and Basic 7 janvier 2008
Par Jill M. Clemmons - Publié sur
This book gives a very broad, basic view of France. If you know nothing about France, it can be helpful. However, if you've ever taken French classes in high school or college, you've probably learned these cultural notes in the introductory courses. As a study abroad advisor, I would recommend this book to anyone who doesn't know anything about France, but would be very worried if I was sending a student to France for a year and this was the extent of his/her knowledge! If you're going to France for a week on a tour, this book will help prepare you and may explain some of the questions you have about France. If you're going to be going to France for a longer period of time and/or want to really develop a greater understanding of French culture, this book is way too general and introductory for you. It's set up like a mini encyclopedia, with the subjects arranged alphabetically, not by category or subject area. It's an interesting set up, and fine for a brief introduction to French culture. If you're a strict grammarian who finds it distracting to read texts with grammatical errors, be forewarned: this book has several grammatical errors throughout its subjects.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Fluffy - not valuable information 20 mai 2004
Par Mr. Wynn - Publié sur
This book is too clichéd! Everything is described so briefly. I hesitate to call is succinct because it really doesn't delve deep into the culture. The topics covered are very superficial and it makes the culture look very transparent.
The book just barely gives you enough information to be a tad bit familiar with French culture but by all means will not prepare you for any immersion into French culture.
I've seen worse books than this, though. But there are better ones out there.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Very good guide to culture of "France" only. 1 novembre 1999
Par "operkaiserin" - Publié sur
This book is part of a series of cultural guides; others in the series are "The Hispanic Way", "The German Way", & "The Italian Way". I'd read & enjoyed both "The Hispanic Way" & "The German Way", so when finding "The French Way", I wanted to read it, too. Taken as a guide exclusively to France & its people, this book is quite serviceable & thorough. And like any book this size & attempting to deal with a topic of this scope, "The French Way" is not going to be exhaustive, but rather is a good introduction & "stepping-stone" to further reading. There is indeed good information in this book. However, "The Hispanic Way" & "The German Way" are more thorough, providing information not exclusive on "Spain" or "Germany", respectively, but on Spanish-speaking countries & German-speaking coutries, too. Obviously, the francophone world is huge, & a book of this size would have to focus primarily on one area; "The Hispanic Way" focused on Spain, does provide information about Hispanic America as well. I had hoped that "The French Way" would include some information about Belgium, Luxembourg, & Canada at least. Since this book doesn't include at least a little more information about these other francophone areas, I'd have to give it only 4 stars.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Stop ! This book is just full of cliches and very biased ! 23 décembre 2003
Par never - Publié sur
Although some historical references are right (not all of them however), most of the content of this book is based on cliches and stereotypes about France ...
First of all , how can you name a book "Aspect of behavior, attitudes , etc ... of French people" ? It sounds like a book about animals.
Also I was very disappointed by the lack of information about regions and cities other than paris.
To me it is not the kind of book that will help you understand the French culture or even help you travel throughout France, it is rather a very biased pro-american comparison between french and american cultures.
Stay away from this book !
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Just the facts please. 18 novembre 2013
Par J. Hickmon - Publié sur
Copyright in 2006, this book is slightly dated but still has a wealth of information. There are 90 chapters that read like dry encyclopedia entries. The chapters are independent of one another, so some things are repeated often. The chapters cover the gamut of French culture from social greetings to centuries of political history. Most of if not all of the information can be found online, but the book puts it all in one place. It may even answer a question you didn't even know you had. I think it is suitable for tourists, students, and business people.

The most useful information I received is that France 5 is the culture television station. I had wanted know to what station in France was equivalent to PBS or BBC, so I got my answer and much more about French media. Now I can enjoy France 5 videos on Youtube.
