This is the first Vook book I've read. Ever so often a slew of Vook books pop up on Amazon as freebies for the Kindle, and this was one.

It is what it says it is - brief. It focuses mostly on the 1800s and after, dealing with the modern design and moving into WW II. It is not a linenar history, more of a thematic. It also is very up to date, mentioning the riots and the causes of a few years ago. I'd say it's a good introduction to Paris, in particular the culture with the focus on food and fashion.
