While this book was interesting, it wasn't what I expected. Instead of being a guide to New Jersey amusement parks, it is more of a historical point-by-point. Each amusement park is given a detailed historical rundown, somewhat dryly, with a few black-and-white pictures scattered about. There is some contemporary guidance for visiting the parks today, but the real meat of this book is as a history lesson.

As with Futrell's Amusement Parks of New Jersey, the out of date cover art with a park that no longer exists (Astroland) lets you know ahead of time that the book is not up to date. But the history alone makes this book worth reading

As with Futrell's Amusement Parks of New Jersey, the out of date cover art with a park that no longer exists (Astroland) lets you know ahead of time that the book is not up to date. But the history alone makes this book worth reading. New York is where the amusement industry began in the United States, and the chapters on Coney Island tell the tale of how it all began with plenty of detail and facts; all without loosing the reader's attention. And then you have Playland in Rye, which is the first master-planed amusement park

Ok met my expectations. Had a few parks I mind when I ordered the book so they were included, even one that was relatively small and I thought unknown. Black & White photos so that is good. I am happy with this.

Jim's books are always a good read and MUST HAVE for your personal library.

As a born and bred NJ-ite, now living in NH, I really enjoyed seeing my childhood once again. Afterall, what Baby Boomer dos not know, at least via the song, PALISADES PARK? That place and Atlantic City were, prior to Disney World, the most recognized names for amusement. Having this volume is a real joy for this guy who lived in a summer home at Seaside Heights. A perfect item for anyone who wants to collect Garden State memorabilia and/or those who are fans of amusement parrls.

While the book is a tad out-of-date, (as the cover image displays proudly; RIP Casino Pier; it only covers up to the construction of Nitro at Six Flags Great Adventure) it's still a great book covering the storied history of the Amusement industry in the Garden State from the very beginning. While some parts could have been given more content (Six Flags Great Adventure gets the same amount of coverage as parks about a quarter or less it's size) it's got all the goods. Hopefully an updated version can be released in the coming years. Hurricane Sandy created enough history to warrant a revised copy.

The only images available in "look inside" are the acknowledgments, contents, a couple of interior pages with scant pictures, and the index. Doesn't make me want to buy the book.

Very, very helpful and informative on the parks of New Jersey - some I didn't even know existed.

Great book!
