Format: Paperback
If you have ever worked in a resteraunt before, then most of the first half or so of this book will be a little boring. There were some helpful hints here and there, but a lot of the broad concepts I already knew. For example, dating co-workers can lead to problems, work fast but don't get careless, etc.

The part of this work that was really useful for me was the job descriptions. I did some searching on the Internet and could find a list that is as good as this book. There are listings for every position that I have heard of and there are descriptions of the job conditions and skills required for the job and (most important to me) standard pay.

The only reason I gave this 4 stars was the fact, that my daughter read it after I did. She thought the book was too thin and was negative and the author made it sound like being a chef wasn't a good thing. I told her that in my opinion this was the right thing to do, so many people think that being a chef is all glamour, you see these food chefs on tv, and say I want to do that!! Being a chef is extremely hard work, long hours etc. Many people go into a job, whether chef or something else, with absolutely no idea about the cons as well as the pros. The author spells it right out for you. Especially when you remember he wrote this for his daughter, don't we all want to protect our kids?! I thought it was a definite must read and am so glad I purchased it. He also listed all the different jobs within the culinary industry as well, which there were many I wasn't even aware of. Thank you!

A must read if you are a cooking student, it will prepare you really good for all your cooking jobs.

I have been cooking for many years, but I still can't believe how much I learned from this book.
