I grabbed this book from a display at the library. I am familiar with the writing of Jane and Michael Stern--and their food writing is generally better!

Not that the writing was bad--this is a fast, interesting, and easy read. I found the really good parts to be those about the training, actual calls (even those that are wasted time--because those are a very real part of the job), and continuing ed. Those parts having to do with marital problems and the author's depression and loneliness were a bit too much. Or there just WAS too much--I am aware of the subtitle. But I think the Prozac and good therapist probably played a big part.

Worth the read if you enjoy this sort of thing, but not Earth-shattering.
