Author/narrator Mintz paces his audiobook well. His delivery is enthusiastic; he knows food and restaurants, and the listener learns a lot. A Canadian food critic, culinary school grad, and an aficionado of cuisine of every stamp, Mintz delivers a catalogue of issues, including unrealistic customer expectations, wage theft, tipping disparities, and chains' need for growth oversaturating the market. He offers a brief "to do" list of solutions: Eat local, patronize immigrant and mom-and-pop places, ask questions about sourcing, and learn to cook. Mintz has the charming Canadian pronunciation of "out" and "about," but some of his American pronunciations are regional and distracting. That said, this audiobook has much to recommend it.
