My only complaint was the reading was not spliced together well. He would finish a sentence and immediately say the next chapter title and go into that next chapter. It was confusing at first till I figured out this was happening. Watched him on TV for years, finally decided to listen to this book. It was good for the foodies, no one else would appreciate.
The book itself was awesome and listening to Anthony read was Perfect. My only problem with it was the editing. There were points in the book where it abruptly jumped to the next track or recording quickly cutting off the previous track. If it hadn't been for that the book would have been perfect.
New school to some extent in some places. The stories and descriptions took me back to my time in restaurants in the 80s.
Read by author. His wry sense of humor, and refreshingly blunt words are music to my ears.
Bravo Zulu, man.
What can you say about this...an instant kitchen classic that any BOH worker worth a dahm brags everytime about reading!... Read it. Find out for yourself that this industry is very much how he discribes.
I have been in the service industry for over half my life. Anthony gives you the ins and outs of the industry from a very vulnerable place. He takes you on a ride through the good and the bad. Think of it what you will.
