I’ll Have The Liver, Please! is a funny and adventurous story about Bradley Ross, who has an unending need to try every exotic and traditional dish found in various countries. The problem? His companion on these incredible travels, his plain chicken-breast loving wife, who is against trying anything outside the ordinary. As Bradley states, they are perfectly mismatched; the less she wants to try something, the more appealing it is for him. This story is filled with amazing stories from diverse countries, guaranteed to make you want to travel and eat exotic meals. Then out of the blue, Bradley is diagnosed with a life-threatening liver disease that leads him to becoming an organ donor list patient. I’ll Have The Liver, Please! demonstrates the strength that this couple has and how they stay by each other's side when things get tough.

Bradley Ross’s memoir is a fun, light read. I cannot count the times that my mouth watered and it made me get up and cook something to appease the need for exotic dishes. This book highlights the cultures and traditions that are behind different countries’ meals and desserts. At least for me, this book has made me realize that there is more to traveling than just sight-seeing. Overall, this is a very well-written book, filled with great humor and, best of all, pictures from their travels around the globe. I loved the pictures, they made the story more personal, approachable, and real; there is nothing better than seeing actual evidence of what you are reading.
