George Motz became a hamburger expert after his acclaimed documentary "Hamburger America," featuring eight classic burger joints, premiered on the Sundance Channel in 2005 (DVD is included with this book). The film received a nomination for a James Beard Award, and George found himself teaching a course in hamburgers at NYU. Hungry for more, he became obsessed with finding 100 of the best burgers in the country. The book Hamburger America is the result of endless research, many long drives, short flights, belly-busting taste-tests, and thousands of photographs. He lives in Brooklyn, NY with his vegetarian wife and two children.
