This is the first book for the owner of Landry's and the Houston Rockets.

Fertitta told ABC13 that when he was asked to do it, he jumped at the opportunity.

"It was really fun because everybody's always playing with me about my Tillman-isms," he said. "(And), so there are no spare customers, take no out of your vocabulary, know your numbers."

The book will be out on Tuesday and Fertitta said he will go on tour to promote it.
