Book Review of Pleasant and Not So Pleasant of my First U.S Visit by D S Banti

First impression is the last impression . I was impressed by the Title of book & more so by the fact that Mr  Banati  is a first time Author like me & wrote his first book at age of 71 . 

Highlights of Book : The Author has divided the book in 24 chapters & he shares the experiences of his three visits to Usa 🇺🇸: both pleasant & not so pleasant ones . I finished the book in three sittings . The book has been written in simple English . The book also serves as a travel 🧳 guide for those who would like to go to Usa 🇺🇸 as a tourist . 

Cover page of book : Thums Up 

The chapters  I liked most : 

1 First call for Boarding & the Wife goes missing 

2 Old TV sold for an Italian Dinner 🥘 

3 Bye 👋 Bye Detroit , Welcome 🙏 Delhi 

What could have been better : If a few chapters were made to be a story , it would have added more charm to the book . 

ISBN code : 978-1-64429-682-0 . Book available from Notion Press , Amazon , Flipkart . 

Overall Rating : 4 / 5

Thanks Mr D S Banati , for putting my name in the acknowledgement  in your book . 

Best Wishes ,
