  • Medium Raw: A Bloody Valentine to the World of Food and the People Who Cook

    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.

    Andy says: "entertaining but not as good as kitchen conf."
    "Anthony says it like it is. I like That!"
    Overall

    Let's get one thing straight, if your looking for someone to say all nice things about everyone, you've got the wrong book and author. Anthony says it like it is, or like it is to him. No mincing words here, but that's what I guess I like. Superstar Chef, no but someone that loves food and knows food and tells you what he thinks of the world of food, chef's , writers and more. I like it even more since he actually reads the book . Love hearing it in his own words, voice. Hope one day I'll have the pleasure of sitting down and having some food and drink with Anthony straight up.

  • What I Talk about When I Talk about Running: A Memoir

    From the best-selling author of Kafka on the Shore comes this rich and revelatory memoir about writing and running and the integral impact both have made on his life. Equal parts training log, travelogue, and reminiscence, this revealing memoir covers Murakami's four-month preparation for the 2005 New York City Marathon. Settings range from Tokyo, where he once shared the course with an Olympian, to the Charles River in Boston, among young women who outpace him.

    Rick says: "It is what it says it is"
    "Great book about the mindset of runners"
    Overall

    I actually listened to this book as I ran. It was interesting to listen to something that was connected to what I was doing. In actual fact I'm really a cyclist and was training for a Triathlon and someone at an airport suggested I pick this up. Lots of great little bits about running and how this author reacts to it. This not teach you how to run , but it certainly gives you a perspective from this authors point of view.

  • Provence A-Z

    An indispensable, richly informative, and always entertaining audio sourcebook on Provence, by the writer who has made the region his own. Though organized from A to Z, this is hardly a conventional work of reference. It is rather a selection of those aspects of Provence that Peter Mayle, in almost 20 years there, has found to be the most interesting, curious, delicious, or down-right fun.

    Dennis says: "A review of all things "Provencale""
    "Overview of Provence"
    Overall

    This is really one of those books you listen to a month before you go and get a glimpse of things that might be of interest about Provence. Simple, but not something I would listen to again , unless I was going to Provence.

    Do you have a hobby you wish you could indulge in all day? An obsession that keeps you up at night? Now is the perfect time to take that passion and make a living doing what you love. In Crush It! Why NOW Is the Time to Cash In on Your Passion, Gary Vaynerchuk shows you how to use the power of the Internet to turn your real interests into real businesses.

    Martin says: "Gary delivers!"
    "Motivator to get you business online"
    Overall

    Gary tells you the ways he's worked on getting his brand noticed and simple techniques that work, but remember it is work, not a free ride. Listen to him rather than read as Gary's passion in his actual words might rub off.

    This is Gordon Ramsay's autobiography, the first time he has told the full story of how he became the world's most famous and infamous chef. He also discusses his difficult childhood, his brother's heroin addiction, and his failed first career as a footballer.

    Wes says: "Humble Ramsay"
    "Gordon is genuine"
    Overall

    Gordon has always impressed me in being real, yes he swears, but have you ever been to a kitchen that doesn't?
    Gordon tells us his story in his own words and I appreciate that he did as it would have been weird listening to someone else tell his story. Once you've heard his story , you can come to understand why he has moved into his well deserved position. I hope he puts out something of like stories in the kitchen.
