    Food Network Fans will enjoy it...

    I am a HUGE fan of the Food Network which is why I purchased this book. It was ok -- nothing too scandalous or revealing inside. I feel that all the good material was published in newspaper articles leading up to the release of the book which is disappointing.

    Informative, Insightful, and Interesting

    This book details how networks are created (and how they continue to function) and it does it in an interesting way. I enjoyed seeing how the different Food Network Stars (aka FNS) came to be. Also, being an Anthony Bourdain fan, it was interesting to see that relationship explained. This book also, slightly, touches on the Paula Deen fiascos of recent years and better explains what happened. Now that I know more about different FNS, I have even started watching more cooking shows (Ina Garten, Bobby Flay, etc.). I liked this book from beginning to end.

    Now you know why prime time on food channel is

    Hours of Diners and iron chef and wooden Martha at off times. She doesnt seem to like cooking eating it or her guests. Dont look for stories about your favorite PBS cooking shows. Thats public broad casting and not show business. t v cable programing is so bad that HG and Food and TCM were the only choice besides PBS and now we have lost Food. Cleaning up a dirty cafe does not improve ones appetite or using weird combos of food which is one reason dont watch Travel. Informative but not a re read so borrow. Could have had more and better photos and been more consistent.
