A Cook's Tour, Anthony Bourdain
Is there anything better than reading Tony Bourdain? Maybe going out drinking with him, but I haven't done that yet so I'll have to just be in love with him for his writing. This is great from beginning to end, but the best parts are the parts about Vietnam because he clearly loves it so much and it comes across really vividly in his descriptions. Seriously I want to hang out with this guy so much that I've actually been dreaming about it lately. Even if you saw the series when it aired, the book is a must read as you get everything that was cut out and more real Tony and less TV Tony.
