I bought this book on Friday and read it over the weekend. It's a page-turner (if we still use that for ebooks) and I really felt like I was getting to know all of the crazy customers and employees who have been a part of the diner's folklore. The book is a good combination of history and present day stories, especially because there is such a continuation between generations of people with the one family that has run it all along. I don't live in Boston, but I learned a lot about the neighborhood (South end) and hope to try some turkey hash on my next visit there. The story about the owner training for a marathon about a year after a heart attack was remarkable, maybe my favorite part of the book. I would recommend this for people who are foodies and those who love history. Really good photos, too. The writer seems to love the subject matter and there are dedications to family members that were very emotional. I liked this book a lot.
