It was born of a simple yet fantastic question during one of our events, Creative Social Paris 2010. We were deep in the Marais, huddled around the legendary Jim Haynes, who’s been holding dinner parties at his modest Parisien atelier for the past 35 years. This man is wise. Wise when it comes to people, he’s hosted over 100,000 guests over the years.

People he didn’t know. The dinner parties are open to everyone. When asked ‘What’s the best piece of advice you have ever been given?’ Jim responded, ‘If you do something for someone forget it immediately. If someone does something nice for you, never forget it.’

This book collects the best piece of advice from all those Socials in Paris and brings them to life with the amazing illustrators and designers from Bernstein & Andriulli, thanks to the vision of the wonderful Louisa St.Pierre.

What is the best piece of advice you have ever been given? Let us know.
