There are a lot of great business books on Fast Food. You definitely do no need to work in fast food to enjoy these great books. Here are some of the top fast food business books that I recommend for a great read.

Fast Food Nation: The Dark Side of the All-American Meal

 

As you read Fast Food Nation: The Dark Side of the All-American Meal you will learn a lot about the food you are actually eating. You may be a bug meat eater and I am not saying this book will make you become a vegetarian but it will make you at least consider buying your meat elsewhere. Real beef and the beef that is sold at some fast food restaurants are vastly different products.

Fast Food Nation: The Dark Side of the All-American Meal also covers the obesity epidemic in our Country and what we can do to help fight it. Yes we are responsible for what we eat but at what point do fast food restaurants become partially to blame for the obesity and unhealthy people in our Country?

The book Fast Food, Fast Talk: Service Work and the Routinization of Everyday Life is a fascinating look at the psychological aspects associated with the fast food training regimen at a couple of famous and popular fast food burger joints.

If you like reading business books about fast food and are also interested in the psychological aspects and how it affects the workers then you will like reading Fast Food, Fast Talk: Service Work and the Routinization of Everyday Life.

The book In-N-Out Burger: A Behind-the-Counter Look at the Fast-Food Chain That Breaks All the Rules is a great read. Who doesn’t love In-N-Out Burger? One of my favorite things about this burger joint is that the customers are always seemingly in a great mood. They do not come across as a fake happy either like most businesses do.

The book In-N-Out Burger: A Behind-the-Counter Look at the Fast-Food Chain That Breaks All the Rules focuses on how a small family run burger joint went on to become a pop culture icon and national fast food restaurant.

The secret menu, the great food, the happy employees, and everything else makes In-N-Out Burger a great place to eat and work.

How much of this is smoke and mirrors and how much of it is truth? How did this chain get to where they are today? These answers and more are provided in the book In-N-Out Burger: A Behind-the-Counter Look at the Fast-Food Chain That Breaks All the Rules.

If you are looking for some light reading that focuses on the history of this company then you will really like In-N-Out Burger: A Behind-the-Counter Look at the Fast-Food Chain That Breaks All the Rules. If on the other hand you are looking for an in-depth read about how the chain overcame difficulties and got lucky in the business World by making some shrewd moves then you will not get what you are looking for with this fast food book.

Don't Eat This Book: Fast Food and the Supersizing of America

Don't Eat This Book: Fast Food and the Supersizing of America is a popular book because it was written by documentary filmmaker and activist Morgan Spurlock who is best known for his documentary film Super Size Me in which he are McDonalds for a period of time and nothing else to see how much weight he would gain and how unhealthy it would be for his body. 

As a result of this movie and the attention it brought to McDonalds the restaurant did away with their Super-Sized combos. You can still get you combo meal in a larger size but it is nowhere as big as it used to be. Now the largest drink I can get for my fat butt is a 32 ouncer when I visit McDonalds. Thanks a lot Morgan Spurlock! Seriously though, if you enjoyed the movie Super Size me you will love the book Don't Eat This Book: Fast Food and the Supersizing of America.

Everything is Possible: Life and Business Lessons from a Self-Made Billionaire and the Founder of Slim-Fast

This book is not near as popular as I think it should be. This book is in the business motivation category but it can be used as motivation for anybody, even if you are not a businessman. This book is not directly about fast food but the Slim Fast Shakes have keot a lot of people away from fast food!
