Reviewer: Julia Reed, (New York Times Book Review)

"[I]t is not unlike the advice that American nutritionists on Web sites and at spas and clinics across the country dispense every day....Somehow, though, these sensible stratagems are more palatable coming from Guiliano, who was once fat herself, and who now happily lives in American, where she first fell victim to our bad habits....Sometimes these 'simple values' seem perhaps too simple. Many of us need the discipline of the gym and don't have time to stroll to the open-air market (which probably doesn't exist where we live)...But, armed with her book, I am willing to try again."

"[A] welcome reprieve from the scores of diet books out there; there's nary a mention of calories, anaerobic energy, glycemic index or any of the other hallmarks of the genre....(Guiliano's] book, with its amusing asides about her life and work, occasional lapses into French and inspiring recipes...,is a stirring reminder of the importance of joie de vivre."
