the true confessions of a wait ress. For these Ginsbergs: Mel, Rosalind, Maya, Lavander, Bodine, Déja, and Blaze- with my love. Although the act of writing is a solitary process, publishing a book is not. I had the invaluable support and help of many generous people both before and after Waiting, and I would like to offer my deep and heartfelt thanks to them now for all that was given: My family for their love and support and for never letting me forget what is truly important. At HarperCollins, I would like to offer special thanks to the indefatigable Lisa Bullaro, who has an endless well of enthusiasm, and Marjorie Braman, who adopted Waiting after its hardcover publication and made good on her promise to love it as one of her own.

Debra Ginsberg is the author of Waiting: The True Confessions of a Waitress and Raising Blaze: Bringing Up an Extraordinary Son in an Ordinary World. A graduate of Reed College, she is a contributor to NPR's All Things Considered and the San Diego Union-Tribune "Books" section.

Waiting: The True Confessions of a Waitress. While chronicling her evolution as a writer, Ginsberg takes a behind-the-scenes look at restaurant life-revealing that yes, when pushed, a server will spit in food, and, no, that's not really decaf you're getting-and how most people in this business are in a constant state of waiting to do something else.

OMG! Of course unless you work in this industry we could never have imagined what goes on behind the scenes of a restaurant. Insighful, interested and funny! Debra is a fabulous author and she does a marvelous job telling her funny and sometimes sad story. Kudos to you and I do hope you have a very happy life that you deserve!!! Loved book highly recommend!!!
I've never been a waitress, however, I do frequent in many restaurants and I have always admired the profession of a waitress. Just watching them handle the HEAVY trays of hot food and always being so pleasant with customers is an art in itself. Debra Ginsberg revealed so much more about the "behind the scenes" which is the most underrated profession and the working conditions in restaurants with humor, empathy, and an understanding of what a waitress must endure when encountering with all sorts of customers, mainly the cheap people who refuses to leave a tip - if you can't leave a tip, don't eat at restaurants!! Remember, all workers, no matter what their profession is, have to make a living and everyone has bills to pay. Everyone who frequents into a restaurant SHOULD READ this book because they will have a better understanding why NO WAITRESS should get a lousy tip. Debra shared the most insightful and SURPRISING revelation on which holidays was the most or least rewarding to be on call. A wonderful read and I appreciate this profession so much more and it deserves minimum of 20% tip!!
As the rare oddball who dreamt of being a server as a young adolescent but never bucked up the courage to try it until I was 25, I can wholeheartedly attest to the rush and excitement (and frustration) of serving tables. The book is a nice medley of memoir and insider's guide that is quite captivating. Even though I didn't relate to some anecdotes and wish the author was more critical of the sexual harassment that is mentioned multiple tines, I still thoroughly enjoyed this attempt to garner more respect for the server community :)
I'm a server in a restaurant. This book is wonderful! I couldn't put it down. I'll definitely be reading it a second time.
Thanks for taking us along on your journey. I really enjoyed it and I liked the update you did at the end. Cheers!
Oddly enough, I recieved a copy of this book, as a gift, three years ago. After rushing my education, recieving a Master's degree at 21, I found myself still employed as a server. Needless to say, I related to the story, which some may argue, is why I rated it a five. Most people take for granted, how many educated servers there are and how annoyed we get when you treat us like a "dumb server." If I have any hopes for this book, it's that some non-service industry types read it and get a better understanding of "the other side."
I found this book to be a quick and easy read, but very enjoyable. She reiterates that common curtiousy goes a long way, whether you are a server or being served. Definately a must read for anyone that has waited tables and a should read for anyone that has or will ever eat out.
Anyone who has ever worked in any part of the restaurant industry, be they a server, bartender, cook or dishwasher will appreciate the years Debra Ginsberg spent in the trenches. Many of her tales from work will leave you nodding in agreement, and remembering stories of your own. Some of her stories will make you realize that you really don't have it as bad as it could be. This book reads like a soldier's-eye view of life on the food service battlefield, and from the first page you will not be able to put it down.
I read this book in bits and pieces; it's the kind of book that you want to savor and enjoy instead of just reading it through. I especially enjoyed her tales of waitressing. The only reason I gave it four stars is because at times it became bogged down with her personal life. All in all, it's well written and a good read.
