This is one of the most approachable and pragmatic books I've come across on behavioral change. Good examples, concrete, step by step. There is a lot to learn here, that pretty much anyone can find value in.
Audio quality is not so great, there are some weird jumps and pauses. The audio side feels several years behind the times, which is a shame because the content is really great.
The book has a number of downloads on the authors' website, but they should be referenced & provided here. The content of the book makes you want to have something to refer to, not just listen to the words.
An accomplished chef's memoir, much less food-focused than others in the genre, and much more human. Samuelson is very honest about hard periods and dumb choices and it's very touching to watch his late arrival at accepting his fatherhood. Obviously a very talented chef & very driven man, I'm most struck by his absolute acceptance of grunt work and hierarchy- without those being continually woven into the story you could think he's a jerk, instead you realize he's extremely hard working and not afraid that doing grunt work harms him in any way. That alone is a powerful message. The book is well told and enjoyable, if a little long.
