What's it about? In the vast overgrown vineyard of food and dining-related books and magazines, Make Mine Medium Rare: A Diner’s Survival Guide, by dining experience expert Robert Scarola, stands apart. Make Mine Medium Rare: A Diner’s Survival Guide is the first book to address restaurant going from the diner's perspective -- and not that of the restaurant critic or celebrity chef. This is the ultimate "diner's handbook", created to help both serious and novice diners get what they want out of a restaurant: the friendliest, most attentive service, the highest quality food, the best bargains and of course the ever-lasting admiration of dates, family, friends and business associates. This is that book, the one that gives you the inside scoop on restaurants, and shows you how to easily turn virtually any bad dining situation to your advantage. Make Mine Medium Rare: A Diner’s Survival Guide is loaded with insider info, entertaining factoids, diner red flags, clever quotations and lore. Anyone who has ever felt confused, intimidated or awkward in a restaurant (and, who hasn’t?) will find this book funny, interesting and useful. Clear and concise, Make Mine Medium Rare: A Diner’s Survival Guide is a welcome addition to the contemporary basic-info-you-should-already-know genre of books and TV shows. All who enjoy television’s Queer Eye for the Straight Guy and The Restaurant will love Make Mine Medium Rare: A Diner’s Survival Guide.
