Dee DeTarsio told me all about the time she agreed to do a TV reality show called The Kitchen Shrink. This is what I thought the whole time I was reading her book. The thing is though, I've never met Dee and I'm pretty sure I've never talked to her on the phone unless she works at Verizon which I hope she doesn't because they spend a lot of time redirecting phone calls. Anyway. After every time that I remembered I didn't know Dee, my next thought was: Wow, her writing is good. She writes like she's speaking to me and only me. That's not an easy thing to do, even though ironically it's the easiest style to read.
The Kitchen Shrink was a delight. I suspect (my friend) Dee works in the TV industry because there are insights here that only those on set could know. Which makes her book that much more fun to read. This is the perfect summer read.
