If you could sum up Medium Raw in three words, what would they be?
Food, Fascination, Folklore
What other book might you compare Medium Raw to and why?
Kitchen Confidential, because Medium Raw was its sequel. A worthy one, too.
What about Anthony Bourdain’s performance did you like?
In Kitchen Confidential, his performance was perfunctory, but it didn't bother me because I liked the stories. In Medium Raw, his narration style improved significantly, and closer to his television performance. Listening to this, you can tell his passion in certain subjects. It's personal, and personal is good.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes. Day off, comfortable couch, and maybe a glass of wine.
Any additional comments?
If you are not into Anthony Bourdain or world of culinary art in America, chances are you will not like this one.
You must read its prequel, Kitchen Confidential, before you start on this one. For continuation's sake, and better understanding in how Anthony Bourdain came to be, well, Anthony Bourdain. They are memoirs, but they read like a good novel. I'm waiting patiently for the next book.
I liked this audio, his passion for food evident. Made even better by the fact Anthony Bourdin narrated himself.

Evidently my review needs at least fifteen words, however, the title says it all. Really.
Bourdain's style is brilliant, relaxed, well written and humorous. If you have an interest in chefs or cooking (or travel), there's something here for you. Thoroughly enjoyable read!
Bourdain does it again. A great followup on his previous book. His style and honesty are much appreciated
