Culture Smart! has come to the rescue of hapless travellers, Sunday Times Travel - ...the perfect introduction to the weird, wonderful and downright odd quirks and customs of various countries, Global Travel - ...full of fascinating, as well as common sense,


France has experienced considerable upheaval in recent years. The Eurozone crisis, a new socialist president, rioting by an alienated underclass, a ban on the burqa (full veil) in public places, and an attempt to democratize the elite system of education all point to significant changes in French society. At the same time leading French companies are major investors in European energy resources, services, and luxury products, and between three and four hundred thousand French people live in Britain, making London, as former President Sarkozy stated, France's fifth- or sixth-largest city. The implications of these changes have not yet fully permeated French society, but they reveal a slow process of adaptation to new realities. Meanwhile, in international affairs, France makes a major and distinctive contribution and carefully guards its interests and prestige. The rivalry between Paris and the provinces continues the traditional split between North and South. France as a whole maintains its stately pace as a centre of culture, civilization, and, of course, the good life, which is one of the reasons it remains, with 75 million visitors a year, the most visited country in the world.   This new, updated edition of Culture Smart! France looks at the attitudes and values of the French today. It explains how French life and business work and shows you how to fit in as a foreigner. There is practical advice on how to avoid the pitfalls and do things the French way. It takes you through history, festivals, and traditions, the French at home, on the road, in the restaurant, and at work. Above all, it shows you how the French communicate, and how best to get along with this sometimes frustrating yet charming and brilliant people.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Essentially filled with idiotic clichés and gross inaccuracies 22. April 2011
Von Fabrice - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I am French, and yet I do not recognise French culture or people in this book.

Even though about 10-20% of the book is accurate, the rest is just a compilation of ridiculous inaccuracies (I am 35 and have never seen any shop closed on good friday in France) or fairly xenophobic clichés (i.e. The French see themselves as a big family, Frenchness and French language are an obsession, they keep on innovating in order to feel good as a country, they do not use deodorant, etc!!!).
The author seems to build on his personal prejudices/frustrations toward the French, without realising that the traits he attributes to the French people in general are usually some types of general criticisms that could apply to any kind of people, including the English or the Americans.

Due to their lack of originality, these criticisms will not teach one much about France, but may comfort one in one's erroneous prejudices. Go for another book about France, sorry...

1.0 von 5 Sternen Please Do Not Waste Your Money!!! 28. Juni 2012
Von RainBowie - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I bought this book because I heard Culture Smart! is a great series, but this book is a HUGE exception.

Read "Au Contraire: Figuring out the French"(available free online) or "French or Foe" instead. The many quotes he has from these books were the only minor insights available.

The author spent the entire book making snide comments on how horribly impossible and arrogant French people are(The author is British). What was worse than his attitude was the fact that he assumed that if you are a British or American person in France you automatically want to meet other British and American people instead of French people. There were typos, it repeated itself almost verbatim throughout the book and really if I hadn't already fallen in love with France from a previous trip I would have been afraid that French people would eat me. TERRIBLE BOOK.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Definitely Read Before Travelling 28. Oktober 2014
Von MooreNoLess - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
France - Culture Smart is a very good overview book to read before traveling to or throughout France. For us, it is the perfect companion to our earlier purchase: Speak the Culture France - Be Fluent in French Life and Culture. After reading at least half of both books, no one can say they "don't get the French." We "got them" and it made our travel much more enjoyable and meaningful. Clear explanations, interesting insights and very understandable overall context were provided for both the traveler or casual Francophile. To put it in Americanese; these are bullshit-free travel books. Don't go to Paris, Lyon or any part of France before reading these genuinely enjoyable books. They also also make good evening reads in the hotel room.

3.0 von 5 Sternen The general overview of the book was good. However 25. August 2014
Von Nicole Schmidt - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The general overview of the book was good. However, there wasn't as much information about what to wear, how to act, etc in order to fit in. It was nice to have some of the history, however, there was really much more historical background information than I needed at this time....
