Not good. Thin history, lots of trivia and corny humor, strange editorial choices: brief but intriguing discussions of the initial social conservatism of pancake houses and of the racial and social implications of Aunt Jemima pancake mix, juxtaposed with the author's apparent consternation that Little Black Sambo was ever "deemed offensive" and a gratuitous photo of a bare-breasted woman by a cooking fire, captioned "A Native American woman cooking pancakes outdoors," with no further mention in the text. I didn't learn much about pancakes, and I didn't have much fun doing it. ( )
