Anthony keeps it real by sharing his past experiences and stories with candor and a healthy bit of shame. A must read for any sommelier of life.
But please fix the abrupt cutoff at the end of the later chapters, ruins the storytelling, big time.
I love how Tony acts like a buffoon when he is in fact an articulate writer. he had enough real world struggles that made him who he is today. I was a cook and Waitron for a decade. he totally took me back in time. it is as relevant today as it was 15 years ago. I love this book.
I'm just a guy who hates Small talk, thanks to audible and a good set of ear buds. Not shopping, not even waiting rooms are a problem.
I always like non fiction when it's read by the writer
The honesty, this is the first time the truth of the kitchen life was brought out into the light.
Great book, worth the price
I want sleep beneath the peaceful skies in my lover's bed with a wide open country in my eyes and these romantic dreams in my head~~
I would, there was a lot of information on how to run a kitchen/restaurant and he goes through so much of it you can't help but pick up some new things if you listen more than once.
Bourdain's voice--he is an excellent narrator in my opinion. Hearing the beginnings of his career and how he graduated from CIA was entertaining.
I plan to get the rest of his books, I have not heard any others yet.
Culinary Badass Through the Years
He has a likable personality, great stories, and a unique but fair attitude for his world of food.
This guy wrote this book for self promotion. Don't read if you're interested in actually learning something. Just watch one of his TV shows.
