    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."
    "IT IS BOURDAIN--WHAT DO YOU EXPECT?"
    Overall

    Anythony Bourdain tells you his feelings on a few things--most of his feelings are mixed (e.g., Alice Waters he rips a new one and then understands), while some are pretty straight foward (e.g., Alan Richman--the two won't be having dinner anytime soon). It is funny, then depressing, then funny.

    I had no problem with the amount of profanity in the book--it is obvious that how he wants the story told. It works.

    He is a wonderful storyteller and he is the one reading his book--that makes it worthwhile.
