Jeff Ruby's memoir chronicles success in and out of restaurants - Cincinnati News, Weather, Sports from FOX19 NOW-WXIX

New book by Jeff Ruby chronicles his success story

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Jeff Ruby is known for a namesake chain of Midwest steakhouses that consistently gain praise from consumers and critics alike, and now he's adding book author to his already impressive resume.  

In Not Counting Tomorrow: The Unlikely Life of Jeff Ruby, coauthor Robert Windeler follows Ruby's life story from Asbury Park to the top of the culinary world, serving actors and actresses, heads of state, presidents and hall of fame athletes.

The book chronicles how a job with Holiday Inn in Cincinnati led to a chance meeting with baseball superstars Johnny Bench and Pete Rose and eventually opened the doors for Ruby to start his iconic steakhouses.

The story isn't only a recollection of Ruby's success in the restaurant business. Not Counting Tomorrow recounts his national escapades, from confrontation with OJ Simpson, or the full-page ad he purchased after the Casey Anthony acquittal, or the days spent in the Drew Peterson murder trial in Joliet, Illinois.

Not Counting Tomorrow: The Unlikely Life of Jeff Ruby is available online and in stores today. Ruby will be a Joseph Beth in Norwood at 7 p.m. to sign copies of the book.
