Was expecting a follow up to Humble Pie ...,
This review is from: Gordon Ramsay's Playing with Fire (Hardcover)
I really enjoyed reading Humble Pie, alright it was very easy to read but sometimes it's just nice to read a book you don't really have to think about.
The thing I liked most about Humble Pie was the way it took you through Gordon's life and all the ups and downs he'd faced along the way, all written in his unique style!
I was expecting Playing with Fire to be a follow on from this and have been disappointed. Instead it's basically a list of all the restaurants he's opened, in chronological order and the lessons learned in each one. It's trying to be more of a business self-help type book instead of an autobiography and just ends up to me as Gordon giving himself a very big pat on the back for being extremely successful and making loads of money. Which, to be honest, he's come from nothing so he deserves to be pleased with himself but it wasn't the book I was expecting which is a shame.
