"Hamburger America," is the greatest book ever written about the greatest food item ever, written by the greatest Burger lover ever, George Motz. The book has now been "Completely Revised and Updated," just as the title states.

This edition is even better than the first one, and I LOVED the first one. I'm not even mad that I'm going to have to start over getting autographs at the entries that I visit. The good news is that this edition has an entry in my hometown - Kewpee's is only 9-ish blocks from my front door - so getting started again will be easy. =)

Excellent book. Burger man's guide to the best places in America to get a burger. George Motz spares no details and gives a healthy serving of acknowledgments to those who helped him. A must read for burger afficianados.

BTW, I emailed George while reading this book and he replied the following day. Good man!

Excellent travel narrative. I don't know about soft white buns as a delivery platform for hamburgers. How about some whole grain?

Ostensibly a guide to burgers, but it's really a collection of short stories about the American Dream.

This was a fun tour of various burger joints in the US - at least one per state.
