The “down and dirty” facts of working in the restaurant business. Anthony Bourdain is honest about his “highs”, (you learn that he did a lot of drugs) and his lows, during his career. Overall, an informative book with lots of tips on food preparation and warnings about eating out at a restaurant. The audio book is the way to go in order to hear him tell his story.

Talked too fast to follow so didn't listen long.
Interesting reason for getting into the "kitchen game" in the first place (didn't like/understand it), told me something about him however.

"Garlic is divine. Few food items can taste so many distinct ways, handled correctly. Misuse of garlic is a crime...Please, treat your garlic with respect...Avoid at all costs that vile spew you see rotting in oil in screwtop jars. Too lazy to peel fresh? You don't deserve to eat garlic."
— Anthony Bourdain (Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly)
