This book was an enjoyable read. It's perfect to use as a reference book for looking things up while driving by in the car. More importantly, if you are planning your trip in advance you will find yourself reading through it like you would an interesting history book. Having lived in New Jersey for quite some time I was impressed with the accuracy of the information as well as the "cute" little inside comments. The author definitely visited the locations before writing about them. This is a book that will be useful to locals as well as tourists in both NJ and PA. Nicely done!

As a New York City resident who likes to make weekend forays to interesting and beautiful places, I found this book chock full of useful road trip suggestions. Far from being a dry list of 'must see's' this book combined just the right amount of practical information (who, what, why, where, when, and how), historical background, colorful descriptions of some less than mainstream attractions and most appreciated of all, humor. This book is very user feindly and fun to read. I give it five stars.
