Reviews

"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, and that's saying a lot!"--Mario Batali, chef and author of Molto Italiano
"Stacy Perman's illuminating new book, In-N-Out Burger, is an absorbing case study of how a family business came to be at the center of its own cheerful cult.... [This] should be required reading for family business owners, alongside Rich Cohen's Sweet and Low and Thomas Mann's Buddenbrooks."--Fortune Small Business
"[An] entertaining corporate history....Perman's reporting is considerable."--Time magazine
"The tumultuous history of how one family and the business they fought to control turned the hamburger into the culinary symbol of a century....Told with the same fresh approach that has turned In-N-Out Burger into an American institution, Perman keeps us wanting more."--Tilar J. Mazzeo, author of The Widow Clicquot
"Did you ever wonder why the people behind the counter at In-N-Out are always smiling? Now I know thanks to Stacy's amazing book."--George Motz, filmmaker and author of Hamburger America
"Thanks to Stacy Perman's book, the term 'soulful fast food' is no longer an oxymoron. Her recounting of the In-N-Out story is one of passion, good intentions, remarkable success and treachery that transcends the burger world to become a tale that is vivid Americana."--Jane and Michael Stern, Roadfood.com
"At last, the great American small business story gets told. It is a reassuring read in uncertain times, reminding business owners to listen to customers, do what you love, and have fun while you do it."--Sir Richard Branson, founder of the Virgin Group
"When fast food restaurants tried to locate in Fishermans Wharf, our local merchants were opposed to every one of them--except In-N-Out. Because every meal is fresh and made from scratch, In-N-Out is in a class by itself."--San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom
" Wow! Stacy Perman's In-N-Out Burger isn't just a good book about the rise of a fast-food chain--it's an exciting saga about a family who created a profitable company that serves great food and still treats its customers and employees decently. What a great story!"--ANDREW F. SMITH, author of Andrew F. Smith, author of Hamburger: A Global History
