American life as we know it is unsustainable. Think about it: the vast majority of middle class Americans wake up, eat an additive-riddled, mass-produced breakfast product, spend an inordinate amount of time sitting in their pod-like cars during the morning commute, work long hours in another, debatably habitable office pod probably in front of a computer …then commute home again and, exhausted, stay put, glued to the television or an internet dating site for the sake of stimulation and human connection, afraid to go back out into a freeway-dominated world where culture is slowly evaporating in the wake of strip malls, mega-stores and the monolithic offices where we slave away so that maybe, someday, we can afford to put our kids through college and retire with a pittance.

Not surprisingly, given the title of the book, Isabel comes out way on top — and we are left itching to dump our wearisome existence and move to Paris immediately, suddenly more than willing to relinquish our pesky iPhones for dog-earned, philosophical tomes by Rousseau and Voltaire and exchange Pop Tarts and Diet Coke and commutes for croissants, red wine and a quick stroll to work along cobblestone paths. Dreary and dark though it may be at times, Geoghegan insists, passionately, that Germany works.
Not perfectly, perhaps, but in a fashion designed to cultivate livable, balanced and — shoot — even lucrative, informed and economically stable lives.
