The book does a great job in putting together passionate creativity, artistic coherence, and nostalgic information.
Now where is my next fix, er, hot dog coming from?
An oft-repeated theme in the book is the author's belief that hot dog stand operators, through the camaraderie their stands engender, infuse the patrons with positive family values and are thereby a force for good in their communities. Sounds reasonable to me.
The author is a longtime salesman for and officer of the Vienna Beef company. And his enthusiasm for his subject sweeps all before it, largely making irrelevant his book's rich offering of sometimes confusing but often amusing dangling participles and typos of various sorts. Fortunately, the story is straightforward and not likely to be obscured by these. Also, there are many photos of the stands and their personnel to make it even more immediate and personal.
I unconditionally ecommended reading for all hot dog lovers.
