Product description

From the Back Cover

Achieve savoir faire and fit into French culture with ease

Irascible, genial, logical, passionate, cerebral, poetic, snooty, egalitarian, diplomatic, blunt . . . the French have been called many things but never dull. Whether you're traveling to France for business or pleasure, you'll need all the help you can get navigating the apparent bundle of contradictions that comprise contemporary French culture. You need The French Way.

Written by an internationally renowned expert in French culture, Ross Steele, this second edition of The French Way offers a uniquely impartial and fully up-to-date perspective on French attitudes, tastes, and customs regarding everything from business style (formal) to pets (doted on), conversation (an art form) to humor (satiric, political), love (truly, madly, deeply) to time ("Better late than never!").

With the help of The French Way, you will:

  • Understand how people from every corner of France interact, do business, and live their daily lives
  • Become well-versed in ninety major topics including food, family, holidays, the media, religion, sports, money, entertainment, and le shopping
  • Learn the truth about common myths and misconceptions concerning the French and communicate comfortably with French-speaking people without committing faux pas
