Editorial Reviews

From the Author

CHEF TELL was my brother-in-law because he married one of my sisters. When he passed in 2007, I was sure some "famous" author would come along and write his biography. No one did, and I had not known Tell well when he was alive. Acting on a hunch that he might have been a giant in the culinary world, I asked my sister's permission to write the book and use her contacts. She agreed, saying, "Well, you're the writer in our family."Two years and over 110,000 words later, the book was completed. Every review written about it has posted five-stars. My research and many re-writes helped me to understand not only that Friedemann Paul Erhardt was, indeed, an iconic chef and pioneer in his industry but also a mercurial, comet-like lightning rod among the people whose lives he touched: they either loved or hated him. Those at the top of the profession uniformly loved (and now miss) him; the wannabe's envied his success. One thing for sure is that no one coming across him or his life story here will ever forget Chef Tell.

From the Back Cover

"Chef Tell was a man of great humor and incredible skills in the kitchen. He brought wonderful food to the table as well as love and laughter. Author Ronald Joseph Kule did an impeccable job bringing to life Chef's humor and passion for food." - IRON CHEF CAT CORA"Tell never forgot that he was the guest... never took over his segments from the host, and that added to his genuineness. While too many people work to hard to be 'in,' Tell naturally was 'on.' This book gives you so much: a taste of Tell, the person, and his taste for delicious food." - ART MOORE, executive in charge of production for LIVE! with Kelly & Michael

Ronald Joseph Kule writes "... EXTRAordinary biographies and historical fiction novels that open new opportunities for clients." His titles consistently receive five-star reviews, and readers often remark that his work "... paints pictures with words."

Kule hails from Bogota, Colombia, and is one of eight children of a Polish-American father and a Colombian-Chilean mother. He came to appreciate multiple ethnic values and cultural differences by direct observation and travel throughout 40 countries and 49 of the 50 American states. Acclaimed as an author, biographer, novelist, and ghostwriter, Kule also enjoys an international reputation for his sales-training books & courses series, LISTEN MORE SELL MORE, based on his successes in his 39-year career in sales, sales management, and sales training. At his last sales position with an international production and marketing firm, he was #1 in Sales for 18 consecutive years, selling millions in products and services and establishing 1000s of new corporate clients for that company.

Since 2010, Kule wrote, published, and ghostwrote more than a dozen titles across multiple genres.

In the author's words, "If you curl up with one of my books and find yourself breathless, provoked, inspired, changed, and feeling like you just undertook an important journey that left you more than satisfied, my work as your author was successful."

Ronald Joseph Kule writes from Clearwater, Florida. His most recent biography, "CONVERSATIONS WITH ANIMALS... The Dr. Ava Frick Story," was followed by the historical fiction novel, "A BROOKLYN SAGA ~ Stories from the Stoop," in August 2021. He currently works toward a 2022 release of a fantasy/scifi novel and a non-fiction expose of an international scam network. 2023 releases will include another biography, a third sales-training volume in the series, and a new scifi novel.
