I read complaint after complaint about how this book is hard to get into because it's choppy, disjointed. He was bright, witty, sarcastic, unafraid of the camera, and even willing to be embarrassed to give his audience more entertainment value. That he used his success from a book that opened up the kitchen to a largely naïve public as a springboard for international travel and cultural understanding is a benefit for the lot of us. Most of the essays in this book covered these topics, but I wasn't all that into the ones that strayed from them. If 121 people a day were dying from say Avian Flu, we would be freaking out.

His words are not always gentlemanly, but they vividly convey how, say, sitting on the plastic-covered kitchen floor of an Inuit family's house and joining in as they eagerly tear into the raw liver, brain and blubber of a freshly killed seal can be, as Mr. His story was one of remarkable self renewal, a rediscovery of purpose.
