All About the Burger book by Burger Beast was unleashed on April 15, 2019, by Mango Publishing.

It features the histories of people and restaurants important in the history of the humble sandwich with great factoids sprinkled throughout.

The All About the Burger book was written like an almanac with lots of historical dates.

You can see the chapter breakdown below which includes the foreword written by Hamburger America’s George Motz.
