    One of the funniest, most insightful, and shockingly honest books I have ever read The book is written in a unique voice, which might be hard to get if you re much older although my dad is 65 and he also loved it or are not that into boldly brazen and somewhat raunchy humorous writing I don t think that you have to be really into restaurants to appreciate it, but if you are like I am , you will likely get a lotout of it If you dine out alot and are fond of famous chefs and restaurate One of the funniest, most insightful, and shockingly honest books I have ever read The book is written in a unique voice, which might be hard to get if you re much older although my dad is 65 and he also loved it or are not that into boldly brazen and somewhat raunchy humorous writing I don t think that you have to be really into restaurants to appreciate it, but if you are like I am , you will likely get a lotout of it If you dine out alot and are fond of famous chefs and restaurateurs like Jean Georges, Keith and Brian McNally, Graydon Carter, etc then this book is an absolute eye opener that will change the way you view hott restaurants forever.Also worth mentioning is the fact that even though I originally read it because of the restaurant angle this book is very well known in NYC , I actually found the author s experiences as a struggling artist in the high fashion industry eveninteresting and heart wrenching And even better than that were her hilarious but profound views of life and people in general.Basically, if you love celebrities, fabulous restaurants, NYC nightlife, couture fashion, or just good, funny, endearing, boot strapping, amazingly inspirational stories, then I think you will love it as much as I did But if you don t like or have any curiosity about any of those things, this book is probably not the best choice for you I can see how some people might find it depressing, because the author whether she knows it or not actually lives a fantastic life that others can only dream of

    PX This is the bible of the high end New York restaurant industry I have worked for one of the very same companies that this author has, and she is a hero for writing this brave, smart, and insanely funny book Right after this book was published, all current and future employees of Jean Georges s worldwide restaurants were made to sign confidentiality agreements, and we were all threatened with termination if anyone so much as mentioned this book anywhere on company property That alone should PX This is the bible of the high end New York restaurant industry I have worked for one of the very same companies that this author has, and she is a hero for writing this brave, smart, and insanely funny book Right after this book was published, all current and future employees of Jean Georges s worldwide restaurants were made to sign confidentiality agreements, and we were all threatened with termination if anyone so much as mentioned this book anywhere on company property That alone should give you some idea of the incredible stories that are exposed inside, and that s just the tip of the iceberg Watching this company over the years use their influence with the media and the foodie fans to try and squelch the unfavorable exposure within this book, has been one of the most fascinating and hysterical turn of events in the history of this industry.Aside from the great satisfaction of watching my former employers squirm in fear and outrage, however, is the fact that this is one of the most hilarious, heart warming, and inspirational stories I have ever read As much as I loved it, there is so muchto this book than over hyped Jean Georges and his Idiot Right Hand Woman, Loser Believe it or not, they actually end up being the boring part, when you get down to the real meat of the story.PX This is by far one of the best, funniest, amazing, and most entertaining books I have ever read Can t wait to see what comes next

    I love this book It s actually a revised version, so technically this is the second time I m reading it It s warm, funny, poignant, but best of all it s real Literally, the whole thing is a diary By one very cool, smart woman Not what I expected at all.It actually starts out superficially, but gets engrossing soon enough It reminds me of what I first thought when I saw Boogie Nights what with all the goofy clothes and dialogue Then at the end you realize it was all done that way for contr I love this book It s actually a revised version, so technically this is the second time I m reading it It s warm, funny, poignant, but best of all it s real Literally, the whole thing is a diary By one very cool, smart woman Not what I expected at all.It actually starts out superficially, but gets engrossing soon enough It reminds me of what I first thought when I saw Boogie Nights what with all the goofy clothes and dialogue Then at the end you realize it was all done that way for contrast and juxtaposition.But this book is better, because it s real and actually pertinent to life I don t know about you, but I never appeared in a porn or tried to steal drugs from a crazy asiaphile.I thought the writing style was great too Takes a little getting used to, but the book is ultimately better for it

    Witty Try incredibly self absorbed and boring I love memoirs by people in the service industry but this reads like the diary of a high school, gum smacking valley girl minus the Oh my gawd Free kindle download that I abandoned after 18 pages
