    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.

    Sparkly says: "Surprisingly tender."
    "Great listen"

    So concluded the National Football League in a December 2005 scientific paper on concussions in America's most popular sport. That judgment, implausible even to a casual fan, also contradicted the opinion of a growing cadre of neuroscientists who worked in vain to convince the NFL that it was facing a deadly new scourge: A chronic brain disease that was driving an alarming number of players - including some of the all-time greats - to madness.

    David P. McGivern says: "Overall, well worth the credit"
    "Don't watch football much but this is compelling"

    Well organized book interspersing hard science with human interest. Narrator was excellent. Really delved into the history of the NFL coming to terms with concussions and liability. Thoroughly good listen for fan and non fan alike.
