"Fascinating... gripping... extremely funny... A desperately needed corrective to received wisdom about child-rearing and what having children is supposed to do to a woman's sense of self. I loved it. It made me want to move to Paris" - The Sunday Times
"Self-deprecating, witty, informative... But however much she admires 'the easy, calm authority' French parents seem to posess, will Druckerman manage it herself? Her efforts to do so add a compelling narrative to this fascinating study of French parenting" - Guardian
"Observant, dryly entertaining... In recounting how her three children went native, Druckerman is engagingly self-deprecating... This book is worth its price for the crucial information it reveals about how to win the sleep wars" - Daily Mail
"Fascinating and enlightening... Druckerman's observations struck me as Eureka discoveries that could improve interaction between adults and children here" - The Lady
"'I couldn't put it down! Smart, funny, provocative, and genuinely eye-opening.'" - Amy Chua, author of Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother
"Pamela Druckerman is a charming narrator... she has produced an important guide to staying calm, and if half of what she says about anglophone parents is true, her book should be dispensed on prescription" - Spectator
"This witty book will leave you with a few tricks up your sleeve as you embrace the French culture" - TES
"Well-written, funny and doesn't take itself too seriously" - Irish Sunday Independent
