As many others mentioned, the author seems to have a big ego and his cocky tone can be grating at times. But that character trait and his quck-temper are the very elements that lead to inevitable friction which makes for intriguing stories. If he were a modest, always even-tempered waiter, this book would've been as bland as a weak cup of coffee. He's not and thanks to that, this read / listen is quite a scrumptious concoction. Nothing insipid or stale about it for sure.
Audible is a really great way to escape into different worlds. I love "reading" and discovering new authors and stories.
I have read it and listened to it. It is definitely interesting to "read" the behind the scenes world of restaurants and the mindset of people that work as waiters and kitchen staff. Somewhat scary, somewhat an eye opener. Overall the book is great, I felt however that the "waiter" or "author" of this book was blaming the world and the rest of society about his career choices and how tough his life was. I felt that he was somewhat narcissistic and not very honest in some circumstances, which made this book a refreshing read. Nothing that goes on in the restaurant world is sugar coated.
The reading was ok. Wish there hadn't been that much profanity, could have done without that!
No, but it is still interesting
Would get the book if it was on sale.
yes...especially people in the customer service and food industry
i think his name is steve the lead character.....loved how he handled the customers, and managing the restaurant
yes i really like him and all the different voices he does....really bring the characters and books to life....
The Restaurant, The Good, The Bad, The Ugly....
i literally could not put this book down it was such a great insight on how a restaurant really works make sure to stick it out till the end to get the 50 things every waiter and customer needs to do that was great...the narrator did a great job
I liked the honesty in this ebook. I love restaurants and always try to be polite and give a good tip. Once someone has worked for tips they will always be generous to others.
This book interested me because I have friends in the food industry. It is Avery demanding and time consuming career. Pay is not so great so better be a calling or desperation.
I enjoyed this narration and story.
I greatly enjoyed the book and perspective we don't usually hear from the restaurant business. Gives me a little more appreciation for service industry. Plus, it was a great comic at times through the book.
A MUST read for anyone who dines out.
I love these stories, and respect my servers more having read this.
The recording is over modulated, but not unlistenable.
By the 3rd or 4th chapter I was already sick of hearing how great the author is. I didn't bother finishing it so I can't give an honest review of the entire book, but I wasn't at all impressed with what I did get through.
