I bought this book because I am Gordon Ramsay fan. Despite the critical review of the book I thought it was well written. I do wish that the author had also gone further with the book and included the scandal that went on when money was embezzled by his father in law and brother-in-law. I realise that many people think that Gordon's use of the F*** word constantly is put on to get attention. But having lived in Scotland, in an area quite similar, and not all that far from where he was raised, I...more
First book I've read on Gordon Ramsay, but not what I was looking for. The writer quoted Gordon a few times, but then presented a lot of information "informatively", but was it factually?

Based on reviews I've read this was supposed to be a poorly written book. I purchased it anyway because I enjoy Kitchen Nightmares and Hell's Kitchen. I'm delighted to say that this bio was equally entertaining. What a fascinating person Gordon Ramsey turns out to be!
Nice insight into what makes this man tick. I would like to find a book that's more from Gordon's perspective than someone writing about him. Didn't know all those details about his childhood years, but it helps explain why he's so intense and loves what he does.
Terrific book with a lot of insight into the world of Gordon Ramsay; if you have seen his television shows and want to know more about the man behind them - I highly recommend you read this book.

Good book. The language is a bit over the top, but I suppose that comes with the territory. It is amazing to hear about all of the struggles that Ramsay has come through to be where he is today.
Reading this book, you will learn a lot about this passionate man who has worked so hard to get to where he is.
