Americans and the French

Today, I bought a book at Barnes & Noble using a gift card I received for Christmas.  The book is clearly enough about the French.  I read part of the book months before my recent trip to France, and now having returned want to finish it. 

The subtitle of the book is "Why we love France but not the French".  The clerk checking me out must have looked at this title before she said, 'Why we don't like the French, because the French hate our guts.'  Well, they like this American.
