How to be French and clever

If you're a French speaker and want to know what "How To Be Clever" by that Ben Pridmore person was all about, can I suggest that you buy the new French edition - "Comment être génial avec votre mémoire", as translated by Max Parcœur?

I can't offer free emailed versions of this, since the translator wants to make money out of it, but I assure you it's worth buying - it has pictures and everything! Oh, and it's available on Amazon, but if you buy it on Lulu, it gives more money to the writers.

I feel all mercenary now.

Is that his real last name? Because it means "by heart" or "by memory" in French. That can't be a coincidence!

No, it's a nom-de-plume, as they also say in French. I'd reveal his real name here, but maybe he wants to keep it a secret...

google is your friend (if you are clever)...

But, I couldn't find out the difference between

How To Be Clever and

Moonwalking with horses

is there any?

One will teach you how to be clever, the other will set your mind adrift in a world of moonwalking horses.
