5.0 out of 5 stars Counting our blessings, September 11, 2014
In an age when four-letter words help sell books to parents, it's refreshing to read a book like "Magic Always Happens," which celebrates the little miracles all around us. It reminds us to count our blessings instead of complaining. Thank you, Dr. Papaneophytou.

5.0 out of 5 stars Concise, thorough history of Hoboken's population, July 3, 2011
Loved it. As a long-time Hoboken resident, I have picked up a vague sense of Hoboken's population trends & the primary ethnic groups that have lived here, but after reading "Immigrants in Hoboken," I have a much stronger sense of Hoboken's cultural history. Ziegler-McPherson grounds her engrossing book in hard data and detailed research to show how the waves of Germans, Irish, Italians, Puerto Ricans, and smaller groups of other origins settled Hoboken and influenced its political, business and cultural development. And, it's a quick read! I sat down with this book on Monday afternoon and finished it by dinner. I highly recommend it.
