This book is a great read. It is about the travels and education of Alice Steinbach. Her travels around Europe and Japan are punctuated with interesting people, places and not so travelled places. Her education takes her from cooking classes in Paris, Geisha dancing in Japan, Jane Austen in England and working with sheepdogs in Scotland. On her travels she meets up with people from all over the world and she makes many new friends. At first I thought the book was a little slow but then when I got into it I couldn't put it down. I am going to read her first book "Without Reservations". I highly recommend it. It was recommended to me. Enjoy!

I much more preferred "No Reservations" by Alice Steinbach as "Educating Alice" was sometimes slow in story and included too many frilly details (i.e. her reminding herself that she wants to accomplish certain things in her garden once she returns home).
I felt like the love story with Naohiro was not given enough time. She writes him letters but only teases us...personally I want more of the two of them.

Alice travels to different cities to learn different skills, including dancing in Japan, cooking in Paris, and Border Collie training in Scotland! An engaging and interesting insight into cultures of various places and a great way to "meet" lots of interesting people who are passionate about their work.
