Paris Insights, visit the city of lights

Imagine an armchair tour of Paris. Paris Insights-An Anthology is a collection of several of the newsletters published by Discover Paris. 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.
The author takes us on a personal guided tour of one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Not your usual guidebook, this one delves into more personal points of view and topics. A Dog’s Life-A Good Life gives readers the canine lover’s point of view of Paris. Mystery lovers will enjoy the chapter: Photographing the Da Vinci Code or Hemingway’s Paris. As you would expect the chapters on Food and Drink will tempt every palate. The individual topics are too many to discuss in this short review but readers will not find this book lacking. Naturally the book also covers the usual topics of Churches, Transportation, Wine, Sight seeing and much, much more.

Author Tom Reeves created Discover Paris to share his love of the city. The Paris Insights newsletter is part of his mission and his decision to present several of them in this anthology was a wise one indeed.

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 by Reviewer: Shirley Roe, Allbooks Review.

  1. It's nice to read that there are still people around that love and cherish Paris as you describe the author of in this book - Tom Reeves - does. Personally, I feel that when you blend out the buildings, Paris has involved into a 2nd Johannesburg - with all its crime, bad food and touristic trash. I've been in Paris over the last 40 years - on business and private visits - and there is little left of the wonderful French culture. If you want to get some of that, you'll have to go into the countryside, or maybe read this book to pick some of the jewels!
