Best known as the host of Fox's Hell's Kitchen and Kitchen Nightmares, Gordon Ramsay is one of the most driven, successful, and irate chefs around. He has thrown Hollywood actresses out of his restaurants and is notorious for his anger, but his food has been served to numerous heads of state, and he is one of only three chefs in England whose restaurant is rated at three Michelin stars.
In this illuminating work, Ramsay discusses the violent, alcoholic, absent father who died just days after the pair had been reconciled as adults; the best friend and protégé whose bizarre suicide came hours after the two had shared a final meal; the decade-long battle to save his younger brother from heroin addiction and crime; and the real reason why he has not attended the births of any of his four children.
Sometimes hilarious and frequently heartbreaking, this is Gordon Ramsay’s full life, from tenements and poverty to top-notch restaurants and fame.

Like Ramsay? Read this Book. As simple as that.
It is an extremely compelling, entertaining and inspiring story. It will show how many years of hard work go into "turning into a overnight sensation." It will, however, make you want to swear a lot more (and possibly adopt a British accent).
Goes well together with Bastianich's "Restaurant Man." Get a chef's POV from one end, get the wine-guru/businessman flair on the other.
Gordon (Obviously). He is pretty much the only one.
Gordon has had to cope with many failures and difficult moments. I was honestly moved by how he appears to have taken each one on, as painful as it must have been to go through each one of them.
I coughed juice from my nose when Gordon refers to how much "Yanks" use their lawyers as their moms... "They go crying to them".Also, reader discretion is advised. Apart from a lot of F bombs (and some more "Harry Potterish" insults in use in the UK) Ramsay constantly wants to use kitchenware and food to deliver impromptu "sideways" colonoscopies to people who anger him in the kitchen.
Don't judge a book.....
