"....filled with photos by Missy Janes and bright prose by Rose on topics ranging from Palm Beach history to must-sees on the island.....the book is sure to find its way onto guestroom nightstands in Palm Beach homes." -- Palm Beach Life Magazine "Rick Rose has an encyclopedic knowledge of the Palm Beaches. A native of Palm Beach County, he's the historian for the Worth Avenue Association, leading 2,000 visitors each year on tours. . . this illustrated tome is full of tips on where to go and what to pack (a blazer and tie for men, a cocktail dress for women--all in light colors) when visiting this iconic destination." -- Palm Beach Illustrated "The visitors guide to all that is Great in Palm Beach."-- Gail Coniglio, Mayor, Palm Beach "Rick Rose has put together an invaluable guide to all that is Palm Beach. Don't miss his magical Worth Avenue walking tours. No one does it better than Rick, and he's a snazzy dresser too!" -- Marley Herring, President, Worth Avenue Association "I believe that Rick Rose may have lived in Palm Beach in the gilded age in another life. Rick's historic perspectives are not only accurate in detail, but peppered with all sorts of juicy tidbits along the way. The weekly tours of Worth Avenue that he conducts for our organization are so much fun and so informative that many people attend time and time again. Rick is a treasure." -- Robin Miller, General Manager, Worth Avenue Association "As a local native born resident, international, hotelier, innkeeper, community activist, historian, Worth Avenue tour guide and Palm Beach enthusiast, Rick Rose is highly qualified to author a must-read guide to Palm Beach for visitors and residents alike." -- Laurel Baker, Executive Director, Palm Beach Chamber of Commerce
