Book news: Crunch covers potato chip history

DIrk Burhans, known to many of us as publisher of the newsletter Burger Boy (later Greasy Spoon), has written a fun and informative book about potato chips and the people who make them.

Crunch: A History of the Great American Potato Chip runs 203 pages and includes color and b/w illustrations, an index, and extensive endnotes. Published by Terrace Books in hardcover at $26.95, it is widely available including on Amazon for $17.79.

I endorse it with a blurb on the back cover. Below, a 1958 billboard from the Jones chip company, located in a town along the Lincoln Highway: Mansfield, Ohio.
