I liked the content of this book, especially the 'front Door' section because i was just moved to a Maitre d'position from the floor. My qualm with the book is that all the pictures and all the equipment they're using looks like it came from the 80's. A book published in 2001 by a leading culinary school should have the most advanced equipment and nicest photos.
