    In February 1966, U.S. Navy pilot Dieter Dengler was shot down over "neutral Laos". He crashed deep in territory controlled by North Vietnamese army regulars and the communist Pathet Lao, who would eventually capture him and hold him prisoner in a fortified jungle prisoner-of-war camp.

    Matthew says: "Extremely interesting and well-written!"
    "Incredible determination and will to survive"
    Overall

    Fascinating account of US Navy aviator Dieter Dengler and his experiences as a POW and how is was able to escape, several times, from his captors.
    The book lays the ground work for Dieter's amazing ability to survive and endure by relaying his childhood in WWII Germany and how he was able to immigrate to the US and eventually join the US Navy and learn to fly.
    The, sometimes graphic, account of his escape through Laos and Vietnam is gruesome to imagine, making his feat all the more impressive

    My only knock would be the lengthy back-story from his childhood in Germany, though important to set the stage I think it could have been shortened a bit without taking away from the story.

    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."
    "A more mature but still brutally honest Bourdain"
    Overall

    Always entertaining even if full of insider (to chefs and restaurant folk) details - but that's the point. Anthony writes for people like him and the rest of us just come along for the ride because he's such a good story teller.
