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

I really enjoyed this look into the life of one of the most recognised chefs of the world. It was interesting to read this and then his autobiography and see that his own ideals of himself are not that different than Mr. Simpson's. The Media has built Gordon Ramsey up to be a larger than life character and capitalized on his not so good qualities for viewers and moneys but after reading the 2 books on him you get a much more realistic view of an incredible person.

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? Pretty "safe" book. I thought most of the story of his childhood heartbreaking, so appreciate where he came from and where he is today. As well, his charitable work must be humbling. It does appear that when there have been disagreements with the "community", he can apologize. Would have still preferred a book ...more

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.
