A fun read which very vividly reminded me why I could never be a waiter! (Although I do think it's probably easier in non-tipping countries - at least it takes that option for customer_suck away - but still!).

I don't recommend it if you have a weak stomach. Like I already saw in Anthony Bourdain's Kitchen Confidential, there are some things that go on 'back stage' at restaurants that we're just better off not knowing anything about. I don't have a weak stomach though, and I was already aware of many of these darker aspects, so I merely found the book extremely interesting and well-written. I could have wished for more of a comeuppance for some of The Waiter's colleagues, but since it's a memoir rather than fiction, I figure that would have made it just a tad too tidy.

One of the more fascinating books I've read recently.
