Brilliantly irreverent and as unapologetic as always. Most love him, they don't, or they aren't sure what hit them. Because David writes as though he has a literary 'get out of jail free card' - which can make things sticky at times. Let's hope he do ...more

Politically intellectual, well written, thought provoking. As I would expect from the author. If you want a deep dive into what it truly means to "Reclaim the American Dream", this is the book for you.

Insightful, intelligent, forthright; as would be expected from a man of his character. A solid first book, though it is certain that his best writing is yet to come. Looking forward to much, much more.

The title pretty much says it all. I have loved all that Bourdain was. He is/was a unique and straight up talent who is as quick to call himself out, as his is others. He lets his anger and frustrations particularly take center stage in this diatribe ...more
