"Nasty Bits" by Anthony Bourdain

I just got my free copy of "Nasty Bits" by Anthony Bourdain. After trying to get through it on the way to work this morning, I come away relieved that I didn't pay for the book. I like Bourdain...I find him amusing but this book is just a retread of his more obnoxious musings; Americans eat like shit, fusion is the devil, dishwashers are badass, chefs are outlaws, rascals and rogues...or at least the good ones are.

*YAWN*

Is anyone else beginning to find his writing style a little tedious? I'm waiting for him to produce something of merit, something useful, something worth poring over.

This book isn't it.

I was half tempted to leave my copy on the subway for someone more appreciative.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
