Very uick easy read Less than a day in fact Having been in the food industry as both an employee and an owner for most of my life And having been a server of some sort or another for 20 years like the author of this book I was interested to see what I could learnWhile I very much enjoyed the walk down my own memory lane through the stories contained in Ms Ginsberg s memoir I was not very impressed by the lack of a moral to the story As a hero s journey this was an incompleteSince I have spent the last year concentrated on understanding as much as possible the circuitous path I have walked to where I am standing today I wanted to see this sort of self reflection mirrored by my heroine Being that she is older and ostensibly experienced than myself I was mystified by the lack of honest self seeing There was something tense and angry about her vantage point I felt a lot of compassion as I read the conclusions reached at the close of each of the chapters in that I did not get the sense that the concept of true self empowerment and the source of this power is something she is currently aware ofI was left wondering whether her evolution has continued whether she has made any uantum leaps since the publishing of this book I would actually like to know
