A lot has changed since Kitchen Confidential - for the subculture of chefs and cooks, for the restaurant business-and for Anthony Bourdain. Medium Raw explores these changes, moving back and forth from the author's bad old days to the present. Tracking his own strange and unexpected voyage from journeyman cook to globe-travelling professional eater and drinker, Bourdain compares and contrasts what he's seen and what he's seeing, pausing along the way for a series of confessions, rants, investigations, and interrogations of some of the most controversial figures in food. And always he returns to the question: 'Why cook?' Or the harder one to answer: 'Why cook well?' Beginning with a secret and highly illegal after-hours gathering of powerful chefs he compares to a Mafia summit, Bourdain, in his distinctive, no-holds-barred style, cuts to the bone on every subject he tackles.

Clairvoyant Braden Pickering is back for another round of psychic musings and this time he spares no one. In his most personal collection of writings yet, join the author as he busts down spiritual stereotypes over the course of these 19 insightful, humor-based essays ranging in scope from spirit orbs to alien visitations and everything in between. Is astral travel safe? Do ghosts have sex? Why are empaths so annoying? Forget the winning lottery numbers or the name of your future spouse - these are the real questions you have always wanted to ask a psychic but were too afraid (or polite). He will also describe his encounters with not one but two deceased Grammy Award-winning superstars, reveal why his first time using a Ouija board will probably be his last, explain what it means to be awake in a world where humanity seems to quickly be going down the toilet, and discuss why the so-called new age community can be the most cutthroat of all. Relayed with his trademark blend of dry wit and casual candor, "Medium Raw" is the honest, unfiltered, and often hilarious no-holds-barred glimpse into the life of a modern-day psychic paranormal enthusiasts have been waiting for.
