I bought this book and Kitchen Confidential, by Anthony Bourdain because I have been a Chef all my life and am marrying a woman who has no experience with my lifestyle, motivations and inspirations.
I feel that each of these books, in entirely different ways, represent a very real view of professional chefs. I have always liked this Ruhlman book, but must confess to not caring that much for his others.

The Soul of a Writer
Michael Ruhlman portrays the workings of three important contemporary chefs. He does so with a keen sense of human nature, knowledge of the intricacies of "chef-dom", and a gentle humility. The book reminds me of an upward spiral, moving from a chef who is having difficulty with a Master exam, to a chef with creative chutzpah, Michael Symon, to the amazing creator of the French Laundry, Thomas Keller.
This book is easy to read and sometimes hard to put second to other demands. The world is a better place for having a book like this to read. I have gratitude for Michael Ruhlman as I am better off for having read it.
