Overview

In-N-Out Burger: A Behind-the-Counter Look at the Fast-Food Chain That Breaks All the Rules by Stacy Perman

“This book grills up an enjoyable read for both avid foodies and novice diners alike! Perman’s sneak peek into the fascinating history of In-N-Out is as good as the delicious burgers themselves.”

—Mario Batali, celebrity chef and author of Molto Italiano

A behind-the-counter look at the fast-food chain that breaks all the rules, Stacy Perman’s In-N-Out Burger is the New York Times bestselling inside story of the family behind the California-based hamburger chain with a cult following large enough to rival the Grateful Dead’s. A juicy unauthorized history of a small business-turned-big business titan, In-N-Out Burger was named one of Fast Company magazine’s Best Business Books of 2009, and  Fortune Small Business insists that it “should be required reading for family business owners, alongside Rich Cohen’s Sweet and Low and Thomas Mann’s Buddenbrooks.”

Overall, I enjoyed reading this book. I found it very interesting. However, there are several problems. The publisher should be ashamed. This book was not proof-read before it was published. I consistently found errors. There were misspelled words, repeated words, and incorrect information (For example: In 1942 "Harry processed B-52s at Hamilton Field"). The author did some good research, but with so many errors, it is difficult to believe anything the author says in this book. I also thought that there was too much glorifying of In-N-Out. The author should let the reader decide for himself. There were too many single, unusual examples given, rather than overall statistics. Fanatic customers can be found for any fast-food chain, so it is rather meaningless to write so many stories about In-N-Out fanatics in this book.

This is definitely not one of the best books I have ever read. Got board of it very quickly and eventually stopped reading it.

Fascinating history. IN-N-Out Burgers was the first fast food chain to have pre-order equipment for drive-in windows. I also recommend Food, Inc.
