His other books about cooking are more autobiographies, and they are equally interesting. If you like his show on CNN, you'll probably really love his books.

All too conscious of the state of his 44-year-old knees after a working life standing at restaurant stoves, but with the unlooked-for jackpot of Kitchen Confidential as collateral, Mr. Bourdain evidently concluded he needed a bit more wind under his wings. His other books about cooking are more autobiographies, and they are equally interesting.

The only thing "gonzo gastronome" and internationally bestselling author Anthony Bourdain loves as much as cooking is traveling. Inspired by the question, "What would be the perfect meal?," Tony sets out on a quest for his culinary holy grail, and in the process turns the notion of "perfection" inside out. From California to Cambodia, A Cooks' Tour chronicles the unpredictable adventures of America's boldest and bravest chef. Fans of Bourdain will find much to love in revisting this classic culinary and travel memoir.

The only thing Anthony Bourdain loves as much as cooking is traveling, and A Cook's Tour is the shotgun marriage of his two greatest passions. Our adventurous chef starts out in Japan, where he eats traditional Fugu, a poisonous blowfish which can be prepared only by specially licensed chefs.

I’m holed up at the Continental (where I should have stayed all along), just across the street from Givral’s pastry shop and the old Théâtre Municipal n the walls surrounding the Orchid Garden bar in the courtyard. They date back to the 1880s, depicting straw-hatted French generals, white-suited colonists, satraps, and rickshaws. A much larger, later photograph, dated 1975, shows NVA soldiers resting out in front of the hotel.

Anthony Bourdain's first TV show, A Cook's Tour, on DVD, Hulu and Roku.

Bourdain's blog for the reality competition show Top Chef was nominated for a Webby Award for best Blog – Culture/Personal in 2008.

Although I'd heard the name "Anthony Bourdain" I'd never read any of his books or watched his shows. We read this in book club, and now I'm definitely a fan. After reading the book, which is very well written, we watched his show "Parts Unknown" and we really like the documentary style of the show. The food is almost a footnote sometimes. I find each place Anthony writes about to be well studied and presented with just the right amount of flair for the dramatic.

This book, like most of Anthony Bourdain's books, spares no one, not even himself, By the time this book was written, I was watching his show on CNN, Parts Unknown. I have seen many of the shows this book is written about, but, trust me, getting his final word about the show off-camera makes it even more . . . meaningful, hilarious . . . choose your own adjective. I find myself looking for other books he has written. I started reading him with his biography of "Typhoid" Mary. I was interested in her as I am a microbiologist, first spending my working years in enteric bacteriology. His book was a well-thought out tome, and I could understand how a cook would also be interested in such a personality. His other books about cooking are more autobiographies, and they are equally interesting. If you like his show on CNN, you'll probably really love his books.

I'm so sad about the death of Anthony Bourdain, so I had to purchase another book by him. He writes the way the talks and you can hear him talking to the reader in his distinct voice. This book is a good way to help remember this adventurer and this lover of food from around the globe.

After Kitchen Confidential and Medium Raw, I was hooked with Bourdain's writing style. He was able to create a picture of where he was, who he was with and their cultural contributions to the world. I am not finished with A Cook's Tour yet, but it has not disappointed me. His gift for words paints a picture of even the food that he is eating to the point that you can almost taste it. What a loss!!

This is a closer, behind the scenes look at Tony's experiences getting the series going and illuminating his perceptions. I read his first book and have enjoyed the episodes in the TV series. This book filled in some of the pieces for me in a personal way as Tony wrote about why he did some things, shared his reactions to people, places, food and explained the sometimes complex realities of hosting a food/travel program. As a foodie, I enjoyed the read and even more, appreciated the multi layered personality that emerged from these pages. I have not only recommended the book, but I bought it as a gift so someone else could enjoy it.

I laughed and cried, I was in food heaven and hell. What an amazing roller coaster of emotions that Bourdain's delivers in. style, opening a food curiosity and challenge in all of us. I love how Bourdain embraces cultural challenges and eventually knows when to draw a line. Thank you Tony, and pass that beating cobra heart, please. Lastly, I can still smell that dorian fruit, even though I was never near one. Tasha
It came to me in excellent shape and fast! I love watching him over and over. He's informative, his honesty explodes with dry humor, and he's so down to earth. I needed memories of him in case they end his reruns on TV.
