That is what I wrote before the book was released to the general public as an advance reader of the manuscript. Since that initial read I have read the book 4 more times, purchased multiple copies and interviewed both authors on my iHeart Radio show, It's All About the Questions. The depths of this book draw me in with each read. I recently lost my mom so the last read of the book brought the portions of the book around loss to the surface and have helped ease my grief.
I love to read and read about a book a week. This book is one for the ages. It should be on everyone's book shelf, nightstand or coffee table. My copy is dog eared and well loved so I even bought a Kindle version so I can read passages over and over wherever I am. The story is that powerful and perception shifting.
Books like this one do not come around everyday. Buy one for your kids, your siblings, your parents, your staff. Buy it for anyone you love. I predict it will be a new Literary Classic. Perfect for Book Clubs.
. I have read both of his non-fiction books and was very excited upon learning that he had written a novel. I'm so looking forward to trying his recipes. And I am very proud to be aware of his OPERATION H.O.T. (Honor our troops) which he worked tireless to organize and accomplish not once but twice. He is truly the best chef I know and an inspiration to many young chefs. Bravo Chef. I'm really looking forward to your next project!
