    In the 10 years since his classic Kitchen Confidential first alerted us to the idiosyncrasies and lurking perils of eating out, much has changed for the subculture of chefs and cooks, for the restaurant business and for Anthony Bourdain. Medium Raw explores those changes, tracking Bourdain's strange and unexpected voyage from journeyman cook to globe-traveling professional eater and drinker, and even to fatherhood. Bourdain takes no prisoners as he dissects what he's seen.

    Overall

    anthony bourdain mentions that people say he's gone soft, and they're beggin' for the super snark to return. everyone grows with time, or at least they should, and here's proof of it. he's not the same person that he was at the time of writing Kitchen Confidential, and he points that out, I think with humilty and grace. He gets to do whatever he wants traveling and eating and makes a great living at it. He's not bustin' his ass in a hot kitchen anymore and he realizes how lucky he is. Just listen to him talk about his daughter and you'll hear something so spot on and beautiful, you can't help but be happy for this man. The snarky, angry and humorous critic is still there - just listen to the chapter on meat and you won't be disappointed. I could listen to him talk about Pho for days...and I especially admire the respect he shows for the hospitality he is given, and behind the scenes workers in the kitchen - especially the fish prep at le Bernardin. very moving memoir. Bourdain is older, wiser, and he's still got it. Go see his book tour and get the VIP pass to meet him and get a book signed. A thrill that does not dissappoint.

    Last summer, The New Yorker published chef Anthony Bourdain's shocking, "Don't Eat Before Reading This." Now, the author uses the same "take-no-prisoners" attitude in his deliciously funny and shockingly delectable audiobook, sure to delight gourmands and philistines alike.

    Overall

    Humorous, tell it like it is account of the cooking/chef trade. Bourdain is an astute judge of character, who helps the listener really get inside the people who work in this field. Full of salty language, and profound respect for talented people who work hard. Loved every minute of it.
