What is Todd English reading?

Celebrity chef Todd English owns 17 restaurants around the country, including "Olives" in Boston, New York, and Washington. His newest eatery, "Riche by Todd English," opens in New Orleans in the coming week.

He recently talked to the Christian Science Monitor about what he was listening to and watching on television and at the cinema. And reading:
I'm reading Gael Greene's book Insatiable. It's about her career in New York as a food critic for New York Magazine. It's an insider's book on what being a restaurant critic is all about. I like Fiasco, about Thomas E. Ricks. I've just started reading it. He's a journalist, and it's about his take about what's going on [in Iraq]. He gives some real-life stories about what's happening.
