As with her first book, FRENCH WOMEN DON'T GET FAT, Guiliano urges listeners to participate in a culture of moderation. Taking aim at what she calls the dieting industry's twin hoaxes (deprivation is key to weight loss; indulgence is key to weight gain), Guiliano instructs listeners to live in harmony with the seasons, treat themselves to the best food life offers, and to savor everything in life instead of mindlessly eating and living. Listeners will also be treated to her advice on dressing, entertaining, scarf-tying, and bits of fascinating biographical detail. In Guiliano's mouth, language, particularly French, is yet another delicacy, and listeners will savor the author's voice, just as she encourages them to savor, not gulp, their food.
