It was Thomas Jefferson who reputedly said that "every man has two countries, his own and France". The five authors of our Easy Guide to that country (each dealing with the area of their specialty) obviously share Mr. Jefferson's viewpoint, so heartfelt and positive is their reaction to the major highlights of France and the single best options for lodgings, meals, sightseeing, shopping, and more. Like all of Frommer's guides, the emphasis here is on preferences, the strong opinions of each author, the factually-based recommendations they make, in a 316-page easy-to-use book that does not overwhelm with unnecessary locations, but with Paris, Normandy, the Loire Valley, Provence and the French Riviera.
