    A really great book, Matt goes through his life as a waiter in the most entertaining way. He tells of being cheated on tips, grocery shopping in his tux/uniform, and how they really handle the delicate issue of silverware. What is really going on in your waiter's mind? Matt will show you the tricks he uses to get his tips up (like dropping his pen at a table of gays and flirting with the secretaries). The book made me laugh out loud several times, but never grossed me out. I'm more aware of what happens in a restaurant, but not afraid to eat at one.
