Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

- "Restaurateur Jean-Georges Vongerichten is so annoyed by the success of his former Maitre D' Abbe Diaz's new tell-all book, he is forcing his employees to sign confidentiality agreements. They were also banned from discussing [the book] at work." - The New York Post
 
- "Per Variety, 'Daily Show' correspondents Jason Jones and Samantha Bee have inked a deal with CBS to write and star in a sitcom about a celebrity chef and the two women who run his empire... [But] it turns out... Abbe Diaz has spent over a year shopping a treatment based on her own book... assuming the producers can find someone fierce enough to play the role of Diaz."  - New York Magazine
 
- "... [Abbe Diaz] kept a diary in which she vented all her frustration - and named names."  - msn.com
 
- "... that's YOUR book? Great... it's about time somebody wrote a book like that..."
- Bobby Flay
 
- "I liked your book. I always knew [withheld] was like that... I'm just glad it wasn't me!"
- Drew Nieporent
 
- "... [My book] will be nothing like your book..." - John deLucie, Chef/Author, The Hunger

- Salman Rushdie is a "fan" of PX This by Abbe Diaz on Facebook®
