I love this book! It gives you the obvious and the obscure. The book is a great source of ideas. I borrowed the library's copy and now I want my own.

This was weirdly plodding; there was no actual excitement about or love of sandwiches that I could feel in the writing. It felt like I was reading some kind of filler food column in one of those free business magazines.

Is there any meal more beloved by Americans than the versatile sandwich? It crosses every line that tries to divide and provides endless room for creativity and offbeat food quirks. Schoolchildren pull them out of their lunch boxes, families eat them from a picnic basket in the park, and fine dining restaurants serve them on fancy bread and with more exotic ingredients than Oscar Meyer, but they are still sandwiches.

While I enjoyed the premise of this little cookbook (I love sandwiches), it barely can be called a cookbook. It's more of a study of sandwiches actually and a pretty good one at that. The photos are the best part - it's sandwich porn!

A great fun little book chock-full of 100+ recipes for every sandwich imaginable (classic to unusual) with great drool-inducing photos. I tried the Potato Chip Sandwich (peanut butter, dill pickles and potato chips) and the Toasted Chocolate Sandwich (dark chocolate, olive oil and sea salt).

Better for a history of sandwiches than recipes. Nearly all popular sandwiches are here, but most really don't need a recipe to make.
