This is written in an amateurish way with a lot of repetition which is very annoying. The same points are made again and again, this book really needs re editing/ proof reading. Bad grammar for example, "he went and she goes" instead of "he said and she said".
The author, who appears to be a very hard working decent man, comes across as a bit of an idiot, ping ponging between two celebrity chefs that both treat him badly. The most famous one ( who is pretentious enough to change his English names to Italian/ French ones) is such an arse, having no consideration for his staff, deliberately taunting them with pointless and demeaning "fishing" trips in the middle of the night. He then blames Nick for leaving the scene of an accident they were involved in, even though it was under his insistence that they carry on. He is totally obnoxious and yet Nick excuses the abuse he receives.
I loved this book, having been drawn to it by seeing 'that bloke who was shouted at by Marco Pierre White on hells kitchen' on the cover. Although there wasn't as many anecdotes about famous people being rude in posh restaurants as i thought it still had enough tales to be interesting. I loved the section on Madonna's party, a real insight into how the other half live. The book is heavy on Marco Pierre White references which is no surprise seeing as Nick's life has revolved around him as much as it has and i do feel that the book is as much about Marco and his personality as it is about Nick, not necessarily a bad thing but quite surprising considering this could just about be classed as an autobiography of Nick Munier. Overall a good read.
