So I have seen this book around at airport bookstores and stuff, but never actually read it before. It is a crazy look into a chef's experience coming into his own in kitchens primarily in NYC. It is a rye, blunt, honest account of his experiences. His opinionated rants are told with enough humor and experience behind him that they aren't dull. His lack of self-aggrandizing is also cool. It put the preparation of food into a new perspective for me (a foodie wannabe). It definitely has me thinking about restaurants--what I eat---what's really going on in the kitchen---etc. a lot more than before I cracked this book open. Really I'd give it a 3.5 if that was an option.
