Overview

Gordon Ramsay is the most exciting and high-profile chef of today. His amazing talent, huge personality and no-nonsense attitude have propelled him to the top of his profession and won him legions of admirers the world over. His television programmes such as Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares and The F Word attract huge audiences; viewers just can't seem to get enough of this driven, outspoken kitchen wizard. But what lies behind the man in the chef's whites and just how did he manoeuvre himself into such a prominent position in the culinary world?

A multi-millionaire by the time he was 30, Ramsay is as ambitious today as he was when he was a teenager. At the age of 18, he was a professional footballer playing for Glasgow Rangers. An injury sent him from the football field to the kitchen, where he well and truly made his mark. He juggles 18-hour days in the kitchens of his various restaurants with his television career and his role as devoted father and husband - and still finds time to run marathons!

This in-depth and affectionate book traces the life of Gordon Ramsay from the council estates of Glasgow and the picturesque countryside of Stratford-upon-Avon to some of the finest and most expensive restaurants in the world. It also examines how he has overcome the recent allegations which threatened to tear apart his world and the empire he has worked so hard to build.

Sometimes hilarious and sometimes heart-breaking, it uncovers the secret tragedies that helped to turn Ramsay into one of the most successful men of his generation.
