    Real Insight From A Florida Insider.

    Most books of this nature reflect a rose-colored tone usually with a hidden marketing campaign or sales pitch between the lines. This book is different, in a good way. The author provides a realistic presentation of Florida living. Bugs and all. Romantic ideals are balanced with true insight.I have vacationed in Florida for many years and have some direct experience with the beautiful side of Florida (palm trees, porpoises, gulf views) and the ugly side (seedy transients, obscene traffic, overcrowding). The author drives home the concept that vacationing and living there are two different worlds. Sometimes the author voices a personal opinion that may be unpopular or politically incorrect. It's these opinions sprinkled throughout that make this book better. It also helps people like me, who are considering a move to Florida, make more informed choices.My only complaint is that the book didn't contain enough information.

    Some good info with an overall negative bias and sloppy execution

    A quick pass by a professional editor would improve this book greatly and enhance the author's credibility. There are some real grammatical and stylistic howlers here.That said, I read with fascination Stack's vivid portrayal of the miseries of a Florida summer that send many packing back north, often at a huge loss. Alligators in your swimming pool. Snakes crawling into your pool cage to get the geckos. Heatstroke-inducing temperatures and humidity if you dare to venture outside at midday,making neighborhoods into ghost towns. Hurricane evacuations uprooting you and forcing you to join an endless exodus of stopped traffic (woe to you if you need gas; every station along the way will be out, and forget about a place to stay if you haven't made a reservation long before evacuating).

    0 5/5 HollyWK - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Totally Bamboo Cutting and Serving Board, Alaska State (Kitchen) I ordered two cutting boards - one Texas and one Alaska. The Alaska board is missing South East Alaska, but otherwise they are both great. I am from Texas and my husband is from Alaska so I hung them up in our kitchen together. He says there is a problem with the sizing. I have included a picture of what they look like and another of what he says they should look lie. 0, August 9, 2015

    Bamboo Cutting Board Massachusetts State

    0 5/5 lcarr - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Totally Bamboo Cutting and Serving Board, Massachusetts State (Kitchen) I purchased this for a gift for a dignitary from Iceland. I thought it would be easy to slip into their luggage going back. This quality of this board far exceeded my expectations. It was beautifully made and more sturdy that I had thought it would be. I was concerned that the "cape cod" part might break off but I am sure that even under rigorous use this would not be an issue. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 13, 2014

    Fun shape for quality board!

    0 5/5 LoLo - See all my reviews This review is from: Totally Bamboo Cutting and Serving Board, North Carolina State (Kitchen) I have a few standard boards from this company and I love them. Great quality and they last forever (you shold oil them occasionally though). I love the State shapes! I ordered California and was surprised at the size and functionality. I had planned on just giving it as a gift to be put out as decoration but you can do fun things with it. I got creative and put the board together with wine, cheese and nuts and brought it as a host gift. It was a total hit! She used it to serve the cheese and other appetizers The board itself look and feels really expensive and the shape is so fun. I would love to get more for Christmas gifts (mom, don't look) but Amazon seems to be out of stock on a lot of states. I think it would be really fun to create a theme gift basket around the State. Absolutely recommend. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 8, 2013
    State cutting boards are ideal for both indoor and outdoor entertaining; boards make a great gift for anyone loyal to their homeland
    Board made of Moso Bamboo, harvested at the optimum age of 5 years
    Florida shaped bamboo cutting and serving board, measures 13.5 x 12.25-inch
    Can be used as a cutting or bar board, cheese tray or simply a conversation piece; to hang on wall use rustic hanging loop
    Wash by hand with warm water; occasionally use Totally Bamboo's revitalizing oil to extend life and beauty of board

    More narrative style

    0 3/5 Bronx Rox! (Bronx, NY, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Backroads of Florida: Your Guide to Great Day Trips & Weekend Getaways (Paperback) This book is fine, and is lovely for what it is, but it is written in a more narrative style that is not as useful (for me, personally) as a travel guide. It does have some beautiful accompanying photographs, but the suggested routes are only typed out as directions and are not shown in a more convenient map-form. Plus the routes do not go into as much suggested detail as I would want--they feel more like short overviews with nice photos that could inspire drives to interesting places but which would ultimately require more research--or, at least, an attitude of just driving down the road and letting oneself be surprised. Perhaps this, then, is really the book's intent--to suggest and inspire but to leave the real discovery for the actual traveler? 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 11, 2010

However, most of the photos have no identification, and the Table of Contents telling what part of Florida the photos are taken at is useless because the pages are not numbered. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 16, 2014
