This was much better than I expected -- I had seen some press on it when it first came out and didn't think I was interested, but then it was sitting on display at the library when I went to pick up some books I had on hold, so I checked it out as well on impulse. I'm glad I did. I even saw the Top Chef all about the Bocuse d'Or, and didn't really get what it was about. This book gives a much, much better sense of it; the drama, the personalities, the pressure, the skill....it was a surprisingly exciting read.
