Waiter Rant: Thanks for the Tip--Confessions of a Cynical Waiter

Waiter Rant: Thanks for the Tip-Confessions of a Cynical Waiter - Steve Dublanica book does not deserve the 1-star reviews that are cluttering up the front page of its entry. Dublanica merely provides an easy target-- you'd be a trifle hesitant to 1-star, say, a book written by a executioner or some celebrity CEO who theoretically could have you fired by the next business day, but it seems a lot of people are unafraid to nitpick this 300 page Harper Collins book , and of course, you're probably not going to be in a lot of trouble if you do.

deserves a high 3, possibly the 4 if the book is on special (I paid $2!). Dublanica is marked by an exceedingly tolerant, calm personality and if he mildly points out the obvious at times, on the other hand he is apparently a millions-reader blog writer. so he can write. or at least he can characterize his situation.

a trifle weaker than the famous [b:Kitchen Confidential|33313|Kitchen Confidential Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly|Anthony Bourdain|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1348988611s/33313.jpg|4219], Dublanica is working with less material in a less elevated field, but there are 2 million waiters in the U.S., as SD points out, so in some ways, he is the voice of everyman. furthermore, although Anthony Bourdain is the more elevated and elite individual, in some ways I think Dublanica would be easier to get along with. I don't know; call it a feeling.

a quick, more or less very edited/processed text and was definitely worth the 2 sheets.
