This post is written by my friend Ken Mckellar who is a frequent contributor to my blog. For new subscribers, my first language is not English. It is French hence the name of my blog. It is a reminder to myself about how writing and reading helped me sharpen my English without forgetting my French. Thank you Ken for reviewing a French book for the first time on this blog knowing that French is not your first language. Kudos!
