Guy Fieri doesn't slow down for anything. He's had 17 seaons of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives (along with numerous other Food Network shows) and now he has his third cookbook for the show. We sat down with the "Triple-D" star to discuss what makes this third iteration so unique.

Fieri believes that this book stands out because the stories that go with the recipes came from tidbits picked up not only by him, but from his whole crew. "I realized getting ready to write this book that the team... have so much insight, so the great thing about this book, book three... is that you get a real behind-the-scenes look at it from the crew's perspective."

He also is attached to this book because he includes a section on his sister who passed away recently. "The last location that I shot with her was a restauarant that she had recommended... and it was real tough when we were writing the book and I was going through all my notes about the places we were going to include... It ended up being a really neat piece because we could put a nice tribute to her in there."
