I’m very happy to announce that I will be writing another book for Ecco! Titled At Your Service, I’ll be going “undercover” to investigate the dynamics of tipping across the service industry. And I won’t just be writing about waiters mind you, but nail technicians, maids, furniture movers, strippers, taxi drivers, bellhops, and everyone who counts on the erratic generosity of the American public to make ends meet.
Whenever possible, I will actually do the work these people perform. (Obviously not the stripper job – unless I get a good personal trainer.) I’ll share their burdens, suffer their indignities, learn their dreams, and describe how they screw with the people who forget to tip them. If you’ve ever worried about how much to tip the concierge at a fancy hotel, your doorman at Christmas, the hair colorist at the salon, or the bathroom attendant at the nightclub – this book will be for you!
I’d like to thank Dan Halpern and Emily Takoudes at Ecco for their continued faith in me. My best wishes for your and Ecco’s continued success! These guys are on a roll! I’m also looking forward to working with the entire Ecco/Harper Collins team again! Many thanks to Rachel Elinsky, Michael McKenzie, Greg Mortimer, Jessica Purcell, Allison Saltzman, Luca Pioltelli, Renato Stanisic and everyone who helped make Waiter Rant a success! The next book will be twice as fun!
I would be remiss if I didn’t thank my agent, Farley Chase, of the Waxman Literary Agency for his enthusiasm, confidence, and expert guidance. Thanks again man! I’d also like to thank my Mother, Father, family, and friends for their continued support. Thank you Launa!
And, of course, I’d like to thank all the longtime readers of www.waiterrant.net and the wonderful people who’ve bought my book. Without you guys none of this would be possible! THANK YOU!
