First off, I think the effort to document life in the township & offering a slice of life in Urbania is novel and commendable. I’m sure this is not just a good read but also useful for quick reference! I like the passion the author brings out when he writes about nature, gardening, parks, and travel.

It’s an exhaustive book about Thane. The division of chapters is done category-wise making the book more organized & better. All the chapters in the section on eating out are interesting, especially from foodies perspective. The list of eating joints is good & exhaustive.
