"101 Reasons to Leave New York" by Howard Jordan, Jr., is a funny, true and very accurate picture of life in the city. It is a very wonderful book. I am a proud native-born New Yorker”. I left New York many years ago and I am now living in the good old south country of Mississippi, but am still guilty of being a New Yorker at heart. This book brought me home for a little while. It made me smile, made me shake my head in agreement and made me feel good. Mr. Jordan has given us 101 reasons that make New York what it is with explanations and details that hit the nail right on the head. Each of the 101 reasons to leave New York is a good reason to leave but also a great reason to stay. My personal favorite No. 65 is something I find myself saying at least once a day and no one but another New Yorker will understand and accept it without taking offense. New York is a tough place and “101 Reasons” points out the beat of the city.

This is a book for anyone who is interested in what makes New York tic. It is a great book for anyone who dreams of moving to the Big Apple. If you have left the Big Apple it is a special remembrance of what you left behind. Howard Jordan has written an entertaining book with touches of humor, truth and love for the wonderful place known as the best city in the world – New York. “101 Reasons to Leave New York” is a five star winner. It is a great book to read out loud on a long car trip. It is a great book to read on a dreary rainy day to put some sunshine in the room. Howard Jordan has written a book that everyone who ever heard anything about New York will love.
