This book is the Fifty Shades of Grey
of the advice books, and an excellent example in the discussion on what makes one 'an author' these days. In Ms. Scott's case, it's six months she spent with a French family umpteen years ago (six months, or a full year? I think she contradicts herself in this book) plus an ability to regurgitate general health & wellbeing tips from magazines/ the Internet, plus graphomania (the 'scenes from life' she describes...) plus the chutzpah needed to publish these as a book. There's nothing more to it, really. I really tried to give it two stars, but couldn't.
