A highly controversial new book out by a speech writer for a high ranking Minister, across the pond in France is making all the rage.
What's the fuss you ask? - well, get a load of the title: The book is called Guide des jolies femmes de Paris (Guide to the Pretty Women of Paris). A bit of a self-help book to exploring the best Parisian "feminine specialties." The book goes on to list the best spots in Paris for various parts of the female anatomy and other locations for typical hangouts, distinguished by female age-demographic in Paris.
I have been to Paris, but mainly relied on my Lonely Planet book to help me navigate through the streets to find the best cafes, art galleries and other familiar tourist sites. Of course, 'people watching' was listed as being very much a part of Parisian culture.
What are your thoughts? Is this book blatant sexism, or is this adding a different dimension to how cities should be viewed?
...just when we thought French President Nicholas Sarkozy didn't have enough on his plate already.
