"Educating Alice: Adventures of a Curious Woman" by Alice Steinbach

Book Cover

Alice Steinbach manages to do the things we all want to do: She travels to different places to learn new things. She goes to cooking school in France, tours Jane Austin's England, and learns a bit about being a geisha in Japan. She does many other things as well.

I loved reading this book; even when Alice learns something I have no interest in, she makes it interesting. The locations, the learning, and
the lessons were wonderful to read about.

One warning: make your bookmark something you can write on, and write
down all the books that she mentions that sound interesting. I had to go
back through page by page and write them down. I love books that talk
about other books.

A very satisfying read. Fun, entertaining, and, yes, educational at the
same time. I wish there were more books like this; I'd read them all.
