An interesting follow up to last years humble pie.,
This review is from: Gordon Ramsay's Playing with Fire (Hardcover)
This book provides a fascinating insight into how Gordon Ramsay has grown his business empire. It is amazing to read how he started from nothing and now has a company which turns over around £1 billion a year.
It is interesting to read how highly he speaks of those in his team. He does not tolerate idiots and you get the feeling that although he expects very high standards from all his staff, he is very loyal to them. Far from being a mr shouty shouty all the time, we get to hear about how many of his staff who started with him at his first restaurant, still work with him now. If Ramsay was as difficult to get on with as it is portrayed on TV then he would not be anywhere near as successful as he is.
The book also highlights how many huge risks he has taken in opening up restaurants across the world. It is refreshing to hear him admit he has made mistakes but most importantly has learned from these rather than bury his head in the sand.
Fans of humble pie won't be disappointed and it highlights even further that if you want something enough then anything is possible.
