What do Americans think of when they think of the hamburger? A robust, succulent spheroid of fresh ground beef, the birthright of red-blooded citizens? Or a Styrofoam-shrouded Big Mac, mass-produced to industrial specifications and served by wage slaves to an obese, brainwashed population? Is it cooking or commodity? An icon of freedom or the quintessence of conformity?

This fast-paced and entertaining book unfolds the immense significance of the hamburger as an American icon. Josh Ozersky shows how the history of the burger is entwined with American business and culture and, unexpectedly, how the burger's story is in many ways the story of the country that invented (and reinvented) it.

    " This wasn't quite what I expected. I was hoping for more about the food; but what the book ended up being was a history of the hamburger industry. The author's voice didn't hit me quite right, either. Interesting, but didn't really grab me. "

    " This may offend my vegan and vegetarian friends, but this book made me hungry for a hamburger. It was one of the books for my "Poetics and Politics of Food" class. It's a great read with historical and political references to an all-American food. "

    " Nice quick read that was very interesting and entertaining. I use some of this trivia in my Business classes. "

    " Ozersky is a great writer and this is a worthy topic. I just wanted a little more so it was only okay for me -- if you like his other work and/or the topic, I'd highly recommend it. "
