“…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

On the other hand, this book has some very good qualities. The author's NPR experience is apparent in the material preceding each recipe - she has a great sense of the historical trivia and the defining characteristics of similar sandwiches that are of interest to the average reader. She selects a number of interest/amusing "odd-ball" recipes such as donut sandwiches or pound cake sandwiches. She has a real sense of balance in her choice of bread and quantity of fillings. Instructions are clear. Photos are enticing. And it is a reasonably complete set of sandwiches for an average family - useful for how to change up a lunchbox or afternoon snack.
Recipes include the famous New England Lobster Roll, the infamous Elvis bacon-banana-peanut butter gut buster, the hot and crisp Monte Cristo and even a pound cake sandwich for a different twist on sandwich bread. Even the sweet tooths are satisfied with suggestions for the ice Cream Sandwich and the heavenly Fluffernutter.
The Encyclopedia of Sandwiches offers the perfect menu solution for anyone stumped by the question -- what's for lunch (or breakfast or dinner for that matter!). Beautifully illustrated and easy to follow sandwich-making directions.
