    Smartphones and tablets are great tools, but when you're traveling, nothing is quite so reassuring as a book that never needs to be recharged, nor hidden from potential thieves. Pam Bourgeois's Keys to France offers nearly 100 pages of travel tips, cultural insights, and essential phrases to help you make the most of your trip. Each of the five parts includes eight sub-sections, many of them "top 10" lists.
    1: Getting Around covers lodging, asking for directions, transportation, and the enticingly named "Things you will notice in France."...
    2: Shopping for Food and Wine describes the French style of shopping and the basics of bread, cheese, and wine...
    3: Essential Language Tips explains how to avoid language difficulties and provides essential verbs and phrases related to greetings, saying thank you, and making conversation...
    4: Understanding the French covers what to do and what not to, including compliments, bises, tutoiement, and gestures...
    5: Good Things to Know includes asking for help, explaining problems, complaining, car troubles, and illness...
    The Bottom Line.
    With color photos throughout and a short quiz at the end of each part, Keys to France offers a wealth of portable information for travelers. Bon voyage !
    Verdict: 5-Stars
