Pancakes in Paris. Craig Carlson. 2016. ISBN 9781492632122. So a young American falls in love with all things France and Paris and through many twists and turns eventually finds his way back there to open up a Breakfast in America diner, since that is what he missed the most while living there. His writing is very personal and human and he is totally unvarnished about the byzantine labor laws in France that make running a business a nightmare. You will laugh and cry through this book as the author meets and then then gets through many incredible struggles. There are some good business and life lessons in this book.
