    I wasn't prepared to like this book

    But I did. Mr. Batianich is someone I have seen on "Master Chef" and his PBS show regarding wine. He is clearly very experienced and capable at both restsurant management and wine making. I loved what he had to say about wine, it's purpose and so on. I never thought of it that way.

    I always had the impression he was a rather cold and soulless person. I used to think there was no way I would want to face off with him across the Master Chef judging table as emerging with any self esteem and dignity wan't likely. After reading this, I understand he is simply focused and passionate.

    Enjoyed the descriptions, and the language didn't bother me. I have to admire Mr. Bastianich for bring so blunt in looking at himself and reporting on what he sees unflinchingly is unusual and to be admired

    Got any more?

    Interesting and insightful but not for everyone.

    Very readable and insightful look into the buisness side of running a successful restaurant. I was suprised because I thought this book would be mostly about recipes and food. Now I want to go eat at one of these places and of course..drink Bastianich wine and shop at Eataly.
    Learning about Joe's early life with food in his family and life made me understand why he seems like such a hardass on' Master Chef'.
    I wonder what Joe's opinion of the book "Extra Virginity" by Tom Mueller would be?
