    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."
    "Very disappointing after Kitchen Confidential"
    Overall

    I thoroughly enjoyed Kitchen Confidential. In fact, it remains on my iPhone long after I first listened to the book as a repeat when I have listened to everything else. When Medium Raw came out, I was excited to listen to Anthony Bourdain pontificate on his view of the culinary world -- and, to a lesser degree, the world at large. Unfortunately, in his efforts to repeat the tone of the first book, the material comes off as whiny rather than having a tone of triumphing over adversity. Even the narration seems forced in Medium Raw. I actually fast fowarded through various portions of the book and, as of this writing, do not plan on finishing the book.
