Please note, I received an Advance Readers Copy via NetGalley. David Chang is gifted but his bad temper and his battle with depression are his downfalls. He's made plenty of mistakes, has royally gone beyond pissing people off, passed up excellent opportunities due to his stubbornness and ill-temper, and ... no wonder his Omma calls him "Baby King." Not because he is entitled but because he acts like a spoiled, entitled brat, but in a loving way.
That's the thing about this book is he comes clean about who he is and doesn't beat around the bush or make any excuses. He'll tell you straight up, "I'm an a$$4013." What I enjoy is how he explains why he is one and owns up his s4it. He's a massive depressant, OCD, solar visioned for his visual way, self-doubting, and not comfortable in his own skin. Word of advice to Mr. Chang: you are fine. You're not a Twinkie but a fusion. Remember how you described what fusion food is.
I do love the moments where he reflects and talks about his time with Anthony Bourdain and how much he influenced and centered David Chang. They both are so similar and that scares Mr. Chang. "...How I'm still alive?" asks David Chang. It reveals now matter how successful you are, you are still never good enough in your own eyes but in the eyes of others, you are a winner.
