So, You Think You Know the Jersey Shore? lays out a significant base of knowledge for each community on the Jersey Shore, including famous men and women who have made important contributions to each community.

The section "Do You Know" brings forth some little-known facts that contribute to the distinctness of the Island. The photo section will test the reader's knowledge of buildings, views, and objects commonly seen but not necessarily recognized. There is a trivia chapter that will test the reader's knowledge about some well-known and lesser-known facts.

The book ends with the "Treasures" of the Jersey Shore. These are the institutions and places that make “The Shore” a remarkable place to live and work. Some treasures are cultural, some are natural, and some are historical, but each contributes to the quality of life available on The Jersey Shore. The region and its people have something distinct and appealing to offer everyone.

So, You Think You Know the Jersey Shore? will educate, enrich, and entertain the reader.
