More About the Author

My food writing career started back in grad school, where I was supposed to be studying museum exhibit design. I wrote my thesis on the relationship between Jews and Chinese food, a topic I was just able to wedge into the program's American history curriculum. After spending a year immersed in culinary history, I decided to give up my label makers and display case catalogs for a knife and fork.

While the word "food" usually appears in my titles, I'm most fascinated by dining out. I love the theatricality of restaurants, and the communities which thrive within and without them. One of my goals in writing "Yelp Help" was to enhance restaurant-going experiences for eaters, and to properly recognize the contributions of the chefs, cooks and servers who work hard to create them. I hope you'll let me know what you think.

Given the more than reasonable price I paid for this book, I ended up being pleasantly surprised at the abundance of information it contained. The author has a very engaging style of writing. The only downside? I wish it were longer but still a worthwhile purchase.

I am an avid reviewer of restaurants, bars and cafes; sadly, my reviews tend to fall flat. I'm thrilled to finally have a well-organized, engaging and comprehensive book about this subject. I hope it helps.

I just finished Hanna Raskin's excellent tutorial about improving the level of writing restaurant critiques for rating sites like Yelp, Trip Advisor, etc. I wish every person who ever starts to pen such a review would read this book first. It offers straightforward recommendations on how to write a good review, and contains clear examples of how these differ from the mediocre. As I read the book, tho, I thought about how widely applicable the book is to our online review-writing world. Although the examples in Ms. Raskin's book are all about restaurants, they are fully germane for amateur reviewers on every category of product: books (like here), hotels, sites, cameras, phones, etc. I'm not sure my review here is terrifically well written, but it's definitely an improvement over what I would have uploaded before reading this extremely useful and thoughtful book.

This isn't just for Yelpers, but would be perfect for someone who wants to get a crash course on the restaurant industry and gain a greater understanding of how a restaurant operates. It's well written in a style that's easy for beginners and still engaging for those who already consider themselves foodies. I don't think I've read a Yelp review yet that wouldn't have been better had the reviewer read this book.

This book both entertains and cajoles with the goal of coaxing online restaurant reviewers to provide more valuable reports on the meals and establishments they've experienced. While asking reviewers to try harder to evaluate a restaurant based on the aims it sets for itself, Raskin also provides a clear picture of the restaurant as a system and the role of the different workers within it, and draws attention to the kind of cues that make a restaurant's aspirations knowable. Finally, she challenges critical diners to see beyond themselves and to include the kind of details that will truly help the rest of us find places to eat that will be memorable and enjoyable.

Increasing the level of discourse online is a daunting proposition, but Hanna Raskin delivers a tool to help write about food and restaurants in a more thoughtful manner. Drawing on her experience as a food writer and restaurant reviewer, she includes writing exercises and tips useful not only for Yelpers, but for anyone wanting to write with a more distinct voice and perspective. There's even a history of restaurant reviews; did you know Duncan Hines was an actual person and a wildly popular reviewer? (I didn't.) This book may not forever banish cutesy, cliched food writing, but it's an entertaining and effective guide.

This is a terrific book. The writing is engaging and the book is very informative. The reader will learn about restaurants, behind the scenes operations and how to write a professional and credible review. It can turn any civilian into a astute food reviewer while having fun in the process. A great read!
