View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Having read everything I could get my hands on about waiting tables and the like, I found one common thread. Every book seems to be written to give the customer a new perspective. Haven't we given enough to these ungrateful slobs? Isn't it funny that even after the tables are wiped, the ketchups refilled, and the tips collected we are still trying to earn their respect? Screw the customers.

Clam Chowder is for the waiters and waitresses.

Being realistic, I also realized that I don't want servers to think about tables outside of work. Clam Chowder is designed to be read AT WORK! It fits perfectly into an apron or back pocket. Pick it up between tables, read a few pages, laugh, put it back in your apron, and go back to the grind. It also doesn't have to be read in order.

If you want to know where to work, how to get a job, and how to successfully have sex in the walk-in freezer - this book needs to be in your apron. There are practical tips too, like how to wash and press a uniform at work in about 20 minutes, how to clean crusty burnt coffee pots, and how to survive co-worker romances.

Thanks for reading.
