I love this book and am not sure I can let it go. It is, all at once, informative, fascinating, addictive. His ability to explain, in explicit detail, some of the more grotesque practices of even the BEST restaurants or their staff, while not removing your desire to frequent these establishments, is quite uncanny. It is also a concise but invaluable resource for restaurant workers and home cooks alike. One thing is for sure, you will not come away from this book thinking that someday it might be fun to open a small restaurant as a lark!
