Reviews

"José Andrés's work to build a massive relief operation from the ground up after Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico was nothing short of miraculous--and a powerful reminder that we all have a responsibility to do what we can to help one another in times of need."--President Bill Clinton
"In the days and weeks after Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico, José Andrés seemed to always be in constant motion. . . but it's only in the pages of this book that the scale of their contribution becomes clear. What an amazing story!"--Anderson Cooper
"When disaster hit Puerto Rico, José Andrés didn't wait . . . His big heart and boundless energy could not be restrained by red tape. People were hungry, and José is a chef. Chefs feed people. . . He is a leader, an innovator, and a true hero."--Anthony Bourdain
"We know personally of the incredible commitment, ingenuity, and solutions that José brings to our world and the impact this book can have in actually making changes and improving the way we deal with natural disasters. We feel privileged to call him our friend."--Gloria and Emilio Estefan
"A manifesto asking governments and nonprofit groups to rethink the way they feed people after a natural disaster...as close to a page-turner as current-affairs nonfiction gets."--Washington Post
