“If you want to know how the restaurant business works, read it. I bought this book for some people who bought a restaurant, but who knew nothing about the restaurant business. I read through the book and found there to be a wealth of information contained therein. Unfortunately, in the case of the people I bought it for, "you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink." Don't be an onion head, read the book!” - Tony Caravan
