Inside its covers you'll find a lot of good humor, comics, and personal photographs while there are a bit less photographs of food and recipes preparation therefore those people who enjoy classic cookbooks might be a little disappointed.
Fieri’s book of 350 pages is divided into five chapters whose names speak for them what are them all about - Backyard Bash, Extreme Tailgating, At the Lake, Campground Cookin’ and Holiday Cookout - preparing meals outdoors on various occasions.
The cover says that inside can be found 130 recipes though it seems to me as the number is slightly smaller, but it is probably a matter of presentation that made such an impression.
So if you love to eat outside, like grilled meat and barbecue and you don’t mind that the chef (and his book) are not the classic ones, give it a chance to this likeable fellow, he and his recipes certainly deserve it.

I can only say this because the recipes are very, very good. I checked it out from the library first and kind of left it around where my husband might see it and *think about the possibility* of cooking. Then I tried out a few recipes myself and, finally (selfishly) decided to buy it for my sweetie for Christmas, "a gift that keeps on giving." Guy On Fire is chock full of color photos and black and white sketches, as well as useful information about cooking on different types of grills, and it's hardbound so you can abuse it like you should. All these colorful group photos, food photography, personal narrative, anecdotes--not to mention descriptive recipes and technique--packaged up in its tattooed guy aesthetic makes Guy On Fire a practical cultural artifact of our grotesque but tasty nation.
I would say this is a perfect gateway cook book for cooks who are comfortable grilling but not very adventurous, because it dabbles in somewhat unusual ingredients and flavor combinations, but also has crowdpleasers like oh, Donkey Burger (there's bacon but no donkey on that). Or maybe for those like me who enjoy cooking and eating but find grilling anathema. I should note there's a (much too?) large section on "tailgating" but for people who are into that, it might be handy if they just decide they want to go crazy and win at tailgating. In fact, it's a great gift for someone whom you'd like to trick into cooking because whether they view it as an ironic gag or not, they will be so mesmerized by all the crazy stuff going on here that they won't be able to help themselves. You will soon be gorging on grilled, marinated octopus that someone other than you has run through the spin cycle in the washing machine in order to tenderize it. Win/win.
Book has lots of personal and fun, informative photos. You'll simply enjoy reading it even if you don't have much experience cooking. Easy to follow and food is so delicious. Great book.
