All About the Burger Book by Burger Beast

Tio Colo Ad sized 468x60

All About the Burger book by Burger Beast was unleashed by Mango Publishing on April 15, 2019. It features people and restaurants’ history important in the history of the humble sandwich with fabulous factoids sprinkled throughout.

The All About the Burger book was written like an almanac with many historical dates. You can see the chapter breakdown below, which includes the foreword written by Hamburger America’s George Motz.
