I really enjoyed this book. It was interesting, honest and very readable. It follows the author through his education at the Culinary Institute of America at the age of 38. It describes his good days and bad days and his not so wonderful externship at a New York City restaurant. It also incorporates a bit of his personal life with his girlfriend Nelly and how his decision to go to culinary school at 38 affected their relationship. Great read!
