Editorial Reviews

Providence Journal
An odd book about an odd state. Tim Lehnert's Rhode Island 101 puts it all in a handy nutshell.
East Side Monthly
A compilation of everything and anything a person could possibly want to know about the smallest state in the nation. It presents Rhode Island in all its undersized quirkiness, including a bevy of contributions and quotes from locals and out-of-state observers.

    ONE SHOCKING ENTRY

    Basically this is an interesting collection of Rhode Island facts and
    idiosyncrasies. As the author recites ,readers are bound to find something left out or of questionable authenticity, as did I, but that's not important.
    What is important and what shocked me was that , under the heading CULTURE, was kudos to the sleazy and slimey , TV show called "FAMILY GUY", about a dysfunctional 'cartoon' family billed as residents of a Rhode Island suburb. Does the author, Lehnert ,really think Rhode Island deserves this diSTINKion? If this is CULTURE our country is in a worse moral dilemma than I thought.
