What I’m Reading: The Hamburger: A History by Josh Ozersky

I love burgers, which is why I decided to blog about them. Before you can write about the hamburger, however, you must first understand the hamburger. Nobody knows more on the topic than George Motz and Josh Ozersky. Having already viewed Motz’ award-winning documentary, Hamburger America, I decided to start my research reading Ozersky’s The Hamburger: A History. The book starts off tracing the humble origins of the hamburger’s ancestors, moves on to debunking those that sought to claim credit for its current incarnation, the rise of the burger in 1950’s mobile society all the way to today’s global corporate hamburger culture. Due to a busy schedule this week, I’m only halfway into the mega 5-chapter, whopping 133-page opus and part of that is because I also purchased the Audible version for listening in the car. Check it out (if you haven’t already). It’s a fast-paced, well-written and very entertaining read.
