Críticas:

"Sciolino captures the anachronistic heart of contemporary France - and learns the hard way why one must always dress well, even when going to buy a baguette."--"Vogue"

"An American journalist in Paris offers a serious, skeptical study of France's quintessential 'soft power.' "--"Kirkus"

"Witty and keen-eyed"--"Publishers Weekly"

""La Seduction" had me humming 'I love Paris in the springtime.' Elaine Sciolino proves that Paris is the most fascinating, elusive, and glamorous place on earth - and that the French are the most seductive, maddening, and stylish people in the universe. Who could not be seduced?"--Amanda Foreman, author of "Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire" and "A World on Fire"

"What a delight! Elaine Sciolino's multiple talents and considerable experience - as a sharp-eyed reporter and a marvelous writer - are on full display in this delectable account. Just when I thought I'd heard everything about France, Elaine reveals my favorite subject to me all over again.

"Sciolino turns stereotypes into insights in this exhaustive and, yes, sexy examination of France's culture through the lens of seduction. . . . Her enlightening book offers a fundamentally admiring analysis of what she calls 'an essential strategy for France's survival as a country of influence.'"--"People"

"[Sciolino] begins by describing what went through her head the first time a president of France kissed her hand. She also writes about Dominique Strauss-Kahn, whose behavior prompted one French comic to suggest that women better wear burqas in his presence. This is much better to read about than why French women don't get fat."--Janet Maslin, "The New York Times"

"The New York Times Book Review" Editor's Choice

"Crackles with the sharp, rueful wit of an outsider who has achieved some insight into Gallic dos and don'ts largely by running afoul of them herself. . . . Carefully researched and lucidly argued, "La Seduction" develops a wonderfully suggestive theory of French pleasure."--Caroline Weber, "The New York Times Book Review"

"An entertaining journalistic journey through France."--Stephen Clarke, "The New York Times"

Reseña del editor:

France is a seductive country, seductive in its elegance, its beauty, its sensual pleasures, and its joie de vivre. But Elaine Sciolino reveals that seduction is much more than a game to the French: it is the key to understanding France.
