Mike Witzel is the award-winning author of more than two dozen books, including the MBI bestsellers Route 66 Remembered, The American Gas Station, The American Diner, and, most recently, Legendary Route 66. He has appeared on Discovery Channel’s World’s Top Ten Fast Food Restaurants and Tailfins and Drive-ins; Food Network¢s Unwrapped: Drive-In Restaurants; and History Channel’s American Eats: History on a Bun.Review:
From the curbside gas pumps of the 1920s, to the full-service, uniformed attendants of the 1930s-50s, to today's self-service stations, Witzel thoroughly educates the reader about the history of a little considered, but important need for the motoring public. The text is well written and traces the gas station's history chronologically, while the illustrations provide the reader with a poignant reminder of a time when many things in life were much simpler. -- Vette Magazine - Book of the Month, September 1997
