Pardon My French: Unleash Your Inner Gaul - Charles Timoney
I stumbled on this book in a local dollar store, hardback and in perfect condition, and costing, yes, $1.00. It looked intriguing and as I studied French in high school and college it appealed to me as it's meant to help someone understand French as it's actually spoken. I really enjoyed this book, and I think it would be invaluable to a native English speaker who intends to travel, live, or work in France, or if you've studied French and would like to branch out by learning more commonly used words and phrases. The writing is clear and the explanations and examples are sometimes hilarious. Recommended.
