'A truly inspiring read that makes you realise if you want something enough, it's there for the taking.' The Sun
Praise for Humble Pie:
‘Gordon Ramsay’s Humble Pie – so exuberantly angry boastful, cliche-ridden, expletive-laden and touchingly sincere that I can’t believe that a single sentence has been written by anyone but the failed footballer, great cook, telly star and businessman himself. He’s the genuine bollocks, as he’s so fond of saying, and this is the tale of his personal class struggle.’ – The Observer
'Inspirational stuff.' Heat
‘I cannot recommend strongly enough that every BII member reads it… The book is an inspiration. Anybody running any kind of business will benefit from reading this.’ BII Business magazine

However, given it's 2017 and this book is about 10 yrs out of date, it would be nice to have a revised updated version.
That being said, if you want a bit of background to how Gordon got started this is kind of successful chef but not successful business man stage.
One thing I did notice Marco Pierre White get's just one mention in the whole book and it wasn't a nice one, which seems odd given he must have had quite an influence on the early Ramsay. Although, I understand they had fallen out at some stage.
It's great to see him giving so much kudos to his father in law, it seems they make a great team.
Anyway, Gordons the man of that there is no doubt.
The other major thing is that his “best mate” father in law has since been jailed.
Now that would make a better story than I’ve just read. Not a lot on google or Wikipedia about it.
