Last summer, The New Yorker published chef Anthony Bourdain's shocking, "Don't Eat Before Reading This." Now, the author uses the same "take-no-prisoners" attitude in his deliciously funny and shockingly delectable audiobook, sure to delight gourmands and philistines alike.

#Audible1 I appreciated the wisdom and knowledge passed on but some of it just didn't resonate with me. I think I wanted more concrete answers and info but everything just seemed a little half baked. The performance was good but the flow was a bit all over the place.

Nineteen-year-old Greg Sestero met Tommy Wiseau at an acting school in San Francisco. Wiseau's scenes were rivetingly wrong, yet Sestero, hypnotized by such uninhibited acting, thought, "I have to do a scene with this guy." That impulse changed both of their lives. The Disaster Artist is Greg Sestero's laugh-out-loud funny account of how Tommy Wiseau defied every law of artistry, business, and friendship to make "the Citizen Kane of bad movies" ( Entertainment Weekly), which is now an international phenomenon.

Loved Sestero's Wiseau impression. Way better and more honest than the movie. The movie seems to be a lot more sympathetic to Wiseau and changes events but also leaves out things that were actually interesting.
