“…an inherently fascinating browse that features tried-and-true recipes, tips and tricks, and fascinating regional and historical trivia about the best snack of all time.” –Midwest Book Review
“Too few people understand a really good sandwich.”—James Beard
“Presented as an encyclopedia with alphabetical entries, it is an easy-to-use guide for ideas and neglected ingredients. A reliable sandwich stop from A to Z”—Library Journal
“The Encyclopedia of Sandwiches, by Susan Russo, is stuffed with fun history and many of the recipes that make sandwiches a favorite handheld food.”—Everyday Food
“A compendium that's worth the bread.”—Thrillist
“The book is compact, and the recipes are tempting and not overly involved. A nice touch is a six-page ingredient index, listing breads, condiments, sauces, meats, cheeses, fish, vegetables, fruits and nuts that appear in Russo's recipes. What to do with those pineapple rings in the fridge? There's a recipe that uses them.”—Bill Hogan, Chicago Tribune
“The Encyclopedia of Sandwiches is a fun read that will inspire creativity between sliced bread (or in a bun or pita pocket) and is a great resource to regale your friends with random sandwich facts. […] It will also leave you seriously jonesing for a sandwich.”—Katie Machol, Creative Loafing
About the Author
Author SUSAN RUSSO writes for NPR’s Kitchen Window and posts stories, recipes, and photos on her popular food blog, Food Blogga (which is Rhode Island-ese for “food blogger”). She is the coauthor of Recipes Every Man Should Know (Quirk, 2010). She resides in San Diego. And she is forever indebted to her Italian mother for teaching her how to make a good meatball sub.
Photographer MATT ARMENDARIZ is a man obsessed with food, drink, and everything in between, as evidenced by his food blog, Matt Bites, and his cookbook dedicated to fair food, party food, and all food served On a Stick! He resides in Los Angeles. Let the record show that Matt is a true sandwich champion for trying every single sandwich in this book at least once—and some more times than he’d care to admit.

The photos are nice and that's really the only reason I've giving it 3 stars. The more complex sandwiches have clear, short instructions. The history given is nothing more than "This sandwich was popular in the 1920's", so don't expect any depth to the history.
If I had it to do over again, I would not buy this book. It would probably make a good gift for a college student or teenager looking to learn how to make basic sandwiches but for adults wanting to diversify the basic ham and cheese sandwich, skip this book.
