I happend to be a chef myself, my sister gave me this book as a gift and found it to be a wonderful book! Each chapter in the book has a chef telling their tales of their experience in the kitchen and how they felt for the first time of making mistakes. It shows me that everyone is entitled to falling but always some how rise back to the top. It was totally relatiable to me and maybe to you as well!
