    “Chock full of photographs, the book dishes on food from the mid-1800s to the mid-1900s, all along the coast from Sandy Hook to Cape May.” —RedBankGreen   No trip to the Jersey Shore would be complete without indulging in the cuisine that helps make it famous. These foods we enjoy today are part of a long tradition beginning in the Victorian era, when big oceanfront hotels served elaborate meals. Diverse dishes and restaurants emerged during prohibition and the Great Depression, when fast food appeared and iconic boardwalk treats developed. Predating the farm to table movement, fancy and fast eateries have been supplied by local fishermen and farmers for decades. So whether you indulge in a tomato pie, pork roll or salt water taffy, take a mouthwatering historical tour and discover timeless treats from Sandy Hook to Cape May.  “Tells the story of the original farm and sea to table American destination. The book is filled with information about the way the NJ shore has eaten through history and the food establishments that have spanned generations, some still operating today.” —NJ.com  “This book also gives us insights into the earliest days of Atlantic City’s fine hotels. The Victorian era menus included in the volume are a treasure. I also loved her inclusion of such iconic former restaurants as Hackney’s and Capt. Starn’s and the still standing Knife and Fork Inn.” —Atlantic City Central  “If you enjoy walking the Boardwalk for your pork roll and salt water taffy fix, or if you appreciate the history of the region’s former great restaurants like Hackney’s, Capt. Starn’s and Zaberer’s, this book will be an entertaining read.” —Atlantic City Weekly

    What does it take to lead people into a burning building? How do the leaders of the New York City Fire Department develop so much loyalty, trust, and grace under pressure that their subordinates will risk their very lives for them?As a high-ranking officer of the FDNY, John Salka is an expert at both practicing and teaching high-stakes leadership. In First In, Last Out, he explains the department's unique strategies and how they can be adopted by leaders in any field—as he has taught them to organizations around the country. In a tough-talking, no-nonsense style, Salka uses real-world stories to convey leadership imperatives such as:● First in, last out—your people need to see you taking the biggest risk, as the first one to enter the danger zone and the last to leave● Manage change—the fire you fought yesterday is not the one you'll be fighting tomorrow● Communicate aggressively—a working radio is worth more than 20,000 gallons of water● Create an execution culture—focus your people on the flames, not the smoke● Commit to reality—never allow the way you would like things to be to color how things are
