    Not for the Faint Hearted

    My wife bought this book for me as a Christmas gift. We are big fans of Tony. Since I grew up in the NY area, I could really identify with how his characters talked and behaved. Tony uses a lot of NY and Mafia slang, such as 'the vig' (meaning 'the vigorish', which is what you owe a loan shark). His descriptions of what goes on inside a NY restaurant kitchen are dead on. Fans of the 'The Sopranos' will enjoy this book.

    It would be a good read even if it weren't Bourdain

    This was Bourdain's first book and while I don't think it catapulted him to fame over night it was a fun read then when I bought the first edition in hardcover and still is now all these years later. I particularly enjoyed the interaction of the protaganist and his French mother.

    Not for the faint of heart

    This was a fast and easy read, though quite graphically gruesome in some areas. I have to admit to skipping whole paragraphs and sometimes an entire page because I couldn't handle the graphic violence, but that's just me. I was hooked none-the-less, and read it in a weekend. A surprising, kind of fairytale ending. It was like eating a very spicy entree, and finishing with a smooth, sweet and creamy dessert. Satisfying.
