    1 thought on “Inspired by Paris: Why Borrowing from the French Is Better Than Being French”

    1. Fun-Filled, perhaps (future) reference bookI found this book to be quite interesting. I learned a lot of things about France, specifically Paris, that I had no clue about. One day I hope to visit there and this is just the book that I needed to enlighten me in a light-hearted fashion. I definitely recommend this to anyone who has that same dream to go there, those that have visited, and/or anyone who would just like to learn more about the culture, dress, people, etc.

    2. This book is a fresh take on what life and living (or at least visiting) in Paris means.With Inspired by Paris, Jordan Philipps has created a refreshing and enjoyable read about the French capital. It is a fun read with innumerable advice on experiencing a wonderful stay in Paris. The readers learn about the Parisians' behaviour, gain insights in the art of letting the world go by, are lured to smell and taste, and dive into the world of French artists of any kind. Jordan Phillips paints a clear [...]

    3. Well, I’m not being pessimistic but not even in the near future I’m going to beable to travel to Paris, I’m now trying to survive a difficult situation and itrequires a lot of time, but that is not why we are here right?I definitely enjoy reading this book, more than being informative it also has a lotof fun, but above all it is quite honest about the good, the bad and what’s worthto visit there and what’s not.If by any chance you’re planning on travel there for pleasure give this bo [...]

    4. Filled with nitty gritty things to know about Paris and its people, this is one of those books for keeps (for future reference).I liked learning about how to get around in the city and how to just enjoy the moments there.This book contains some history, shared recipes and lists of fashion, food, films and fun facts to be in a Paris mind-set and mode.

    5. Have you always wanted to visit Paris? Live in Paris? This book will give you a glimpse of what it's like to be an American in Paris. It's written in an easy to read conversational tone. The author shares her experiences of visiting, living in, and loving Paris; although, it seems she's not quite as fond of the people of Paris as she is the city and its culture and products. I suppose that's not so surprising given the title and subtitle of the book. The author points out things you can do and b [...]

    6. Inspired by Paris: Why Borrowing from the French is Better Than Being French by New York City author Jordan Phillips is a light look at the French lifestyle. The author appears to split her time between New York and Paris and just happens to love all things French. This is a humorous look at the perceived French mystique- and goes on to unearth the actuality of being French. She explains the difference between the perception of France, one that is sophisticated and quaint with small bistros and [...]

    7. Informative and fun!This is my first written review but this wonderful book presents Paris in such a unique way, I just needed to share.Almost everything i read,fiction and non fiction seems to be set in Europe. I have been lucky enough to travel through Central and Eastern Europe on a couple of vacations but don't think i will ever get enough however, I am drawn to Paris in a way that is unexplainable. I found a kindred spirit in Ms. Phillips! At the moment, because I have been reduced to being [...]

    8. I won this book on . I really liked this book. It has so much practical information about Paris culture. It would be helpful for someone going for a week or someone on a semester abroad or moving there for a time. There are lots of fun bits of information on table manners, movies, clothes, books and all kinds of things. I was going to send this book to my sister who would like to visit Paris. Instead, I am going to keep the book and buy her a new copy. Enjoy this book if you read it and Bon Voya [...]

    9. ‘Paris is always a good idea… whether in reality or just fantasy.’New York City author Jordan Phillips also lives in an apartment in Paris where she gathers all the information for her well-established authority on products Parisienne. She earned a master’s degree in fashion marketing and management from the École Supérieure des Arts et Techniques de la Mode (ESMOD) in Paris, and a bachelor's degree in journalism from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. Her books [...]

    10. Are the French really rude people? Do age specific goals really exist in France? What is it like to actually live in France? If you have ever asked any of these questions, then you may want to pick up a copy of Inspired By Paris. It may just be the book you are looking for.I have to tell you guys, I love Paris and France. I have only been there once and it was amazing. That said there was so much more that I would love to experience and know. So when I was contacted about the possibility of this [...]

    11. Read this book before you go to Paris and take it with you!This really is a fantastic book about Paris and Parisians. It imparts the full flavour of Paris - the touch, the taste, the smell - much in the same way as Jan Morris gave us Venice and Frank Kusy, India. Of course, there is a place for guide books that give me top ten lists of museums and places of interest and of restaurants rated by star and $ signs, but this book offers so much more. Just look at the appendices at the back, comprisin [...]

    12. Inspired by Paris is inspired by Phillips’ travels and other authors of French history, politics, and travelogues. With over eight pages of sources and large swatches of quotes, it reads more like a school essay than a memoir or travelogue. But the Visiting Paris 101 chapter is the shining star; helpful and succinct it nicely lays out all you need to know to get the most out of your visit. However, I felt it was missing a sense of Phillips personality. It started off well with personal anecdot [...]

    13. I found “Inspired by Paris: Why Borrowing from the French Is Better Than Being French” to be very touching while giving realistic opinions and point-of-views about “everything French”. Ms. Jordan Phillips gently encourages you to experience France, to put down your pre-conceptions and biases and to open yourself to new French experiences.I also liked that Jordan did not use this book as an instrument to bash either culture but instead used it as a mirror for all to see and form their own [...]

    14. Well written and well researched, it presents the case for taking what suits from different cultures while always remaining steadfastly yourself.

    15. Treasure trove of facts and feeling about ParisIn the two days it has taken me to read this book, I feel I have been on a whirlwind tour of Paris; this book is so interesting and full of facts. I feel I have much more of an understanding about the vast differences between French and American culture. Jordan Phillips even explains why French people think Americans are loud. Apparently it is because English is spoken using the diaphragm, whereas French is spoken at the front of the mouth! Who knew [...]

    16. I think that I am "over" the French obsession books. Jordan Phillips wrote from a different angle than most. She recognizes the short-comings of life in France. Hence, the philosophy of borrowing from the French, rather than seeking to be French. Because of my lifestyle, I skipped most of the food-related content. The author didn't provide too much information on Parisian fitness, which is interesting to me. I like to know how other women of the world manage to stay fit and trim without jumping [...]

    17. I won a copy of this book in a giveaway.This is a delightful book. It is an easy and fun filled walk through the Parisian culture. I only wish that I had read this book before my trip to France. There are so many things I would have liked to tried and/or experienced. Oh, well, this may be the nudge to get me to plan a revisit!

    18. I found this book to be an informative read about all things French including tips on how to be a true Parisian, to insight on French culture, how to approach French wine and cheese and wonderful first hand knowledge on how to navigate making French friends.
