I loved Alice Steinbach's first work, "No Reservations." I could hardly put it down, underlined so many lines, paragraphs and bits of universal wisdom. So, with great eagerness I purchased her second work.

To express the disappointment in reading this is difficult. There are little to no observations or wisdom to ponder on the human condition. Her classes abroad are boring, inane and so difficult to plow through. I've tried finishing this book for 3 months and view it as I did when, as a child, I was forced to take "just one bite" of liver to be free and enjoy the rest of my dinner.

Save your time. There are so many other wonderful writers to sample. Still, it's disheartening to think Steinbach is a one-book-writer. I loved "No Reservations". I loathe "Educating Alice...".

Read this for a book club and did not particularly enjoy it. There was little that made me think that evoked emotion in me. The prose was stilted at best. It felt like I was reading someone's diary. I was not inspired to finish the last 2 destinations.

THIS IS ONE OF MY VERY FAVORITE WRITERS. I RE READ WITHOUT RESERVATIONS OVER AND OVER, I WAS SO PLEASED TO FIND THIS EDUCATING ALICE. I WAS SO SAD, TO READ , THIS LADY HAD PASSED AWAY. SHE HAD SO MUCH MORE TO SAY, THANK YOU, FOR FINDING THIS FOR ME, IT EXCEEDED MY HOPES. JOY WOOD

Reading one of Alice Steinbach's books is like visiting with an old friend. Her writing is eloquent and warm. She shares her travels, her life experiences, and her deepest thoughts with her reader. A rare find!

I read her first book several years ago and it left me with a taste for more. This is the second book that follows Alice's travels around Europe and Japan. She first starts out at the Ritz Carlton in Paris with the cooking program and picks up speed in Japan. The stories flow beautifully together and I enjoyed the understated way she would make connections with strangers and turn them into friends.

I still love the first one best, this one is certainly a good follow up that you will also enjoy if you like living vicariously through the eyes of this writer.

As a fan of her first book "Without Reservations" I enjoyed this book very much. Alice Steinbach travels to different parts of the world to expand her knowledge and her skills. The reader tags along to her diversified destinations from taking lessons at the Ritz cooking school in Paris to immersing herself in the world of Jane Austen in England. Ms. Steinbech adds new meaning to learning from one's travels. I highly recommend both of her books and look forward to many more.

A delightful read. Her story validates that women can travel alone and have incredible adventures. After reading this, I will have my own story after my summer trip.
I really enjoyed Educating Alice because it gives a fresh take on travel and education. Each of the learning experiences Alice has is unique. I would like to know more about her relationship with Naohiro, although since the book is a travel/educational experience book, perhaps the author intends to write about her relationship with Naohiro in a different book.
