I know many of you are familiar with Robert Arbor's Joie de Vivre, so you don't need an introduction. But a recent email reminded me that there are some readers who aren't familiar with it.
More than any other book, Joie de Vivre captures everything I appreciate about the French. Described as a "sort of a self-help book for people who admire the French lifestyle," this book is filled with suggestions to help you move toward a simpler, French-inspired way of life. I have to say that Joie de Vivre was an inspiration for My French Corner, and Arbor's advice continues to inspire many of my posts.
So, if you haven't read Joie de Vivre, you're in for a treat, and, if you have read the book, perhaps you'll want to read it again, to be reminded and renewed.
