No doubt the author Manoharray Sardessai has done full justice to the onerous task undertaken by him.His style of writing is at once informative and entertaining.With minimum words he gives a bird`s eye-view of the history of Konkani literature from 1500 to 1992.The author was highly regarded for his erudition and felicity in describing and narrating the essentials.This book will be
very useful to all serious students of comparative literature as well as to those who have chosen Science & Technology or Medicine for reasons of Career Advancement but who relish a foray in study of Literature as a means to broaden one`s understanding of Life on Earth.
