    A truly entertaining book

    Have you ever felt lost when talking about the state that you live in? Always wanted that special 'dinner talk' to impress your family and friends? Then this is the book that you'll want to read. If you live in the state of NJ, this is a book that all residents should read. It is clear that the author took a lot of time and effort in finding the facts necessary to put a book like this together. He is to be commended for treating the book as it is, a refreshing account of all that makes the great state of NJ what it is: 'the first state of innovation and ingenuity.'
