I've already learned so much about this book, such as: not to order fish in a restaurant on Mondays, and why average people should not go into the restaurant business blind, and that the business definitely has a seedy underbelly. Sometimes these aren't things you want to know, like bread being recycled in most restaurants and that ordering steak well done might not only incite insults, it might get you an inferior quality steak... Bourdain's narrative style is exactly how he speaks: witty, irreverent and peppered with colorful language. All this contributes to a voyeuristic journey into the netherworlds of high-end restaurants--thanks Bourdain!
