The Bonjour Effect

I just read a wonderful new book by the authors of 60 Million Frenchman Can't be Wrong, and The Story of French. Their new book is called The Bonjour Effect, and Francophiles will take to Julie Barlow and Jean-Benoit Nadeau's book like a Frenchman to foie gras.  

If you feel like you've insulted every French clerk, waiter, and shopkeeper you've ever met, a) you're not alone; and b) you probably have. But at least, after reading this codebook to French language and culture, you'll know why!

And make sure to say bonne journée on your way out!
