This book has been very well-researched and is well-written if at times rather verbose. But it kept my interest in the topic of Americana in the '50s and particularly eating and cooking patterns so it was well worth purchasing.
This book is quite superb as a work of (admittedly specialised) popular cultural history. The author has evidently done her research and the work maintains a coherent narrative without disintegrating into a collection of anecdotes. Her style is approachable, if at times slightly wordy, and the book is quite readable. Recommended for anyone with an interest in food culture, the history of the 1950s, Americana, even to some extent gender.
