Really somewhat of an update to Kitchen Confidential, the book is at turns memoir, apologetics, and confession. Bourdain takes stock of his life from when he wrote Kitchen Confidential to present and seems slightly chastened (as much as Bourdain can be) about certain things said or done, but also attempts to explain both his nature and the forces at work in his life at those times. Ultimately, the most entertaining thing about the book is his biting delivery and the many portions of naked food porn, which happens to be the only time he moves from angry wit to reverence... Bourdain clearly loves food; people are another matter altogether.
