Dishwasher: One Man's Quest to Wash Dishes in All Fifty States (P.S.)

Dishwasher: One Man's Quest to Wash Dishes in All Fifty States - Pete Jordan As the rating says, the book was pretty much ok. After a while, I did just scan some parts. The book is really a mixed bag. There are some moments that are interesting in terms of the places his travels and the look at how food service work operates. But on the other hand, there are moments as well you may not want to eat out again given the condition of some places he has worked at (though that is not so bad). What can be grinding is the fact that basically the author is a lazy slacker with minimal motivation (I will leave it to the readers to find out if he finishes quest or not). And to be honest, he does have some degree of dubious ethics that can make one wonder if all dishwashers are that way, or just the other slackers he worked with in his travels. As for this book falling in the category of "stunt books" (books where someone does something quirky, odd, unusual, so on for some period of time, often a year), this is likely not the best example. I think in terms of appeal, this may appeal to readers who have read books by authors like Anthony Bourdain, except Bourdain has a much better way with words. Jordan is a fairly average writer to put it nicely. So, overall, this is a book to borrow, not buy.
