An illustrated, behind-the-scenes travel journal of Anthony Bourdain's global adventures.
 
More than just a companion to the hugely popular show, No Reservations is Bourdain's fully illustrated journal of his far-flung travels. The book traces his trips from New Zealand to New Jersey and everywhere in between, mixing beautiful, never-before-seen photos and mementos with Bourdain's outrageous commentary on what really happens when you give a bad-boy chef an open ticket to the world. Want to know where to get good fatty crab in Rangoon? How to order your reindeer medium rare? How to tell a Frenchman that his baguette is invading your personal space? This is your book. For any Bourdain fan, this is an indispensable opportunity to hit the road with the man himself.

User Review  - Tim Hewlett-parker - Goodreads

A great accompaniment to his TV show with plenty of good advice on how to get the most out of your visits to such colorful countries. Tony's opinions are always worth reading, if nothing else they'll give you a good laugh. A fun guide......... Read full review

A photo book pretty much behind the scenes from the TV show. I enjoyed looking through the photos and reading the stories, but I do enjoy the show a lot too. A fun small read. Read full review
