“Author and narrator Dan Charnas provides a persuasive performance…Charnas’s observations in and out of the kitchen illuminate how the Work Clean principles are derived from the mise-en-place discipline…Charnas’s narration is fluid, crisp, and clear. He captures the chaos of the kitchen and convincingly conveys how the Work Clean principles can be applied to the world outside the kitchen.” AudioFile
