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.

"Interesting book - but poor narrator"
Whilst the book is interesting the narrator became more and more irritating as the book progressed. Unable to correctly pronounce many words the narrator clearly hasn't done his homework. Strange structure of each sentence will soon have you cringing.
