Humble Pie Kindle Edition
‘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
‘A mesmerising tale. It reads like a conversation and exudes personality. Ramsay finds it hard to dodge the f-word, but despite the defensiveness that comes accross, the book is an inspiration.’ Irish Examiner--This text refers to the paperback edition.

Humble Pie left me realising I knew nothing of Gordon Ramsay, despite seeing most of the t.v. programmes where he is the protagonist.
He isn't a bully because he's been bullied, at times, ruthlessly. He recognises laziness and liars, yet encouraged the higher ratio of raw or eager to learn talent.
I withheld the 5th * based on the final chapter, it gives the impression of boasting "Look what I've achieved!" Although, after his shocking childhood & teens, there's no doubt the boy done good, and he's looking for acknowledgment. I highly recommend this book and I'll be looking for more of his books to read.
Unfortunately because it is a quick read a lot has been taken out and as such it jumps very quickly from one place in his life to another. It still got interesting parts of his life/story. I would say it is a good sample of the full book and will give you an idea if you will like the full version.
