Restaurant Man
"In his memoir Restaurant Man, Joe Bastianich charts his culinary journey from working in his parents' red-sauce joint to becoming one of the country's most successful restauranteurs. Joe first learned the ropes from his father, Felice Bastianich, the ultrapragmatic, self-proclaimed restaurant man. After college and a year on Wall Street, Joe bought a one-way ticket to Italy and worked in restaurants and vineyards. Upon his return to New York, he partnered with his mother Lidia, and soon joined forces with Mario Batali, establishing one superlative restaurant after another"--Provided by publisher.

Seems very candid. Many surprises, he's not as he appears on tv.

Philosophical and surprisingly funny ruminations of a famous son--first generation American struggling to make sense of his own destiny. Loved it!
