Everyone thinks they know the real Gordon Ramsay: rude, loud, pathologically driven, stubborn as hell. But this is his bestselling real story!
What the papers say:
'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. It's so refreshing and energising -- and oddly the fact that every fifth word begins with 'F' adds to its charm, its passion and its delight!The book is an inspiration. Anybody running any kind of business will benefit from reading this.' BII Business magazine
Gordon Ramsay's radical career change at 17 years old led him to London and to huge success as chef, restaurant-empire-builder and celebrity.
