I haven't made my way through the whole book yet, but for those of you who enjoy Bourdain's unapologetic style of writing...this book does NOT disappoint. I haven't laughed this much while reading a book in a while. How many cookbooks have you read where the writer/chef addresses the reader as "Numbnuts"? Even the recipes are written as if he was standing next to you telling (and at times, yelling at) you what to do. My favorite comment that had me in tears...

"Don't worry. Lobsters are essentially big fucking bugs too stupid to know they're dead."

This book proves to me why people read cookbooks cover to cover. I had a hard time putting it down. If I enjoy some of the recipes half as much as I did reading the book it will have been worth it.
