Book review: Keep the Change: A Clueless Tipper's Quest to Become the Guru of the Gratuity by Steve Dublanica
Keep the Change: A Clueless Tipper's Quest to Become the Guru of the Gratuity by Steve Dublanica
About: Dublanica (The Waiter of the book and blog Waiter Rant) sets out to become a tipping guru and learn all theses is to know about tipping. Cabbies, strippers, waiters and shoe shiners are among the large group of tipped workers he interviews.
Pros: Wonderfully written, engaging, topic is well covered, will make you tip higher,
Cons. Ends with an appendix on race and tipping. While necessary, it seemed an odd ending But I don't know where else in the book it would have worked.
