Vibrant, colored photographs bring Paris to life accompanied by vivid and in-depth descriptions of some of Paris’ well know attractions and often overlooked places. An all-around guide to Paris, this is something any traveler will value: a definite addition to the suitcase before jetting off to France. Well written, beautifully presented and a joy to read, this one is highly recommended.

“To know Paris is to know a great deal,” as Henry Miller once said -- an understatement if there ever was one. Well, Tom Reeves knows Paris, no doubt about that, and in Paris Insights – An Anthology he shares that knowledge in bright, fresh, first-hand reports about life in this endlessly fascinating city, enhanced by an outstanding array of photographs. The book contains a batch of mouth-watering essays called “Tasty Treats,” worth the price of the book in themselves.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Paris Insights – An Anthology! It reminded me of the things that I love about Paris and the places that I still want to see, and it also inspired me to think of things that I now want to do. Easy to read and very informative, I think that it is the perfect starting point for planning travel to Paris.

If you were to look up some old friends in Paris and ask them what to see and do, this is what you'd get — a witty, incisive and always informative compilation of sights, sounds and good advice about enjoying the City of Light from an insider's vantage point (I knew they were on the right track when the described their favorite chocolate shop in Paris and it was NOT Angelina!!!). It's a wonderful valentine to Paris, unlike anything you're likely to find in a standard guidebook. Buy it before your next trip!!!

I've always embraced the notion that if something is in a brochure, I don't want to know about it. If it's in a regular guide book, it's usually more promotional than informational. But this book is the antidote to typical tourism hyperbole. It literally points you in the right directions – telling you who to see, when to see them, and what to ask for. It's a true insider’s guide to one of my most favorite cities in the world, written by someone who has lived the special experiences you'll never find in a guide book.

Paris Insights – An Anthology is at once witty, original, absorbing and a swift read. It offers precisely the kind of insider's view of the French capital – and the people who live there – that first or even second time visitors pine for. It offers the tips and historical details that can help them transform a Paris stay from a mundane tourist excursion into an extraordinary experience. The essays give fresh perspectives on Notre-Dame, Les Champs-Elysées and other Paris classics. At the same time, they offer up-to-date information about the hipper, newer cafes and other venues and trends taking hold in this ever-changing European urban stronghold. And for those who just want to know where to get the best hot chocolate, coffee and croissant in the city, it's got lots of answers, too. Forget the standard guidebooks. This is a Paris Traveler's must-read.
