I love Tony - don't get me wrong. I read Kitchen Confidential and laughed like a drain. I cried reading the chapter about looking for his father in France - while I was at the place in the book. But Tony Tony Tony - what is this? Even the swearing seems tacked on. We love the bitter cynic. We loved that you appeared to want to napalm Mario. This is, is well no spoilers but it's Kitchen Confidential from 15 years away. Minus a lot of humour and with lots of grovelling and name dropping. It was hard to read Tony - I nearly gave up. Still love you but can the next one be more Tony and less TV presenter lovey? Please?

Bourdain is not always to everyone's tastes, but he and his shows were an almost constant companion on my own time overseas, and I enjoy his outlook on food. His voice develops with his shows, and he has a deep appreciation of food, and what it represents to different people and cultures. This book reveals more of Bourdain's past, parts that I was not familiar with, and it is interesting to see how he arrived at where he is today. It does have sections that are him lambasting others, and getting the last laugh, which I didn't enjoy as much as the rest of it. If you like Bourdain, and don't mind some strong language, then you'll enjoy this.

If you like this guy don't miss his latest book. My husband and I are hooked on everything he does - he's a bit edgy, treads paths others don't and, for me of course, he is simply gorgeous! This opens with quite a bit about his interesting personal life......but, I'm not going to spoil it for you. Buy and enjoy!

If you enjoyed Kitchen Confidential you'll enjoy this. A slightly more nature Bourdain reflects on a foodie world of fine dining, food TV and life as a minor celeb. Loses a star for the references to chefs who are unknown in the UK so some of the references were lost on me.

You are only going to read this if you have read the original kitchen confidential, therefore reader will know what to expect.
I did enjoy the additional after notes scribbled in the margins
