Gordon Ramsay: The Biography by Neil SimpsonI enjoyed reading this book because I also enjoy watching Gordon Ramsay. I loved hearing some little bits of information about him and his restaurants and also learning about his troubled childhood and how he overcame it but does not blame it. I was interested in learning about his short soccer career before becoming a chef. The only thing about the book that bugged me was the biographer seemed to make excuses for every single thing Ramsay did. I would have rather had things just stated at points rather than commented upon. I can make up my own mind whether the man is sexist or if he is just doing it to stir up people, etc. All in all a good, quick read and I still like the Pompous chef. He is still my current BF ;). DH likes him too (on tv.)
