Review: When there is one problem in front of many, it is necessary to find a solution. The book Cabbing All The Way speaks about that solution. So there are 12 people with a common problem of travelling to and fro to their workplace. What do they do? They come up with an idea of carpooling to end their travelling woes. But will all the woes end? Will they be able to manage 12 different heads? Will they be able to continue with this novel idea of sharing a vehicle? This book answers the above questions in a simple and fun way.
The book introduces to all the twelve people, their traits, their behaviour, their likes – dislikes and much more. Jatin Kuberkar narrates how each of them started to bond while sharing the shared transport, how they began bonding with each other, sharing their problems and having a good time. The effect of the stress-free travel to and fro to office led to more focus on their work and appreciation from their respective managers. But, as it is said, all good things come to an end, this shared transport also came to an end with a slight hope of reviving the shared transport.
The story is simple and is very well narrated. The story kept me hooked as I flipped the pages, sometimes smiling, sometimes frowning at the turn of events. However, the end where again all the 12 come on the same page and start with the services of the shared transport, made me the happiest.
Cabbing All The Way is feel good book which I read while commuting to my workplace and anyone can easily connect with what the author has to say.
Overall:I would recommend this fast paced, breezy book to be a part of your purse, bag-pack or your laptop bag so that you can read while you are travelling and enjoy. I am sure you will not have a dull moment while you read the book.
Take an ounce full of imagination and a scoop of humour. Mix them well. Now put a few teaspoons of feelings and emotions and simmer until it smells good. Add spices for taste. Put the mixture on the platter of dreams and garnish it with a few peanuts of desires and some herbs of passion – that’s all it takes to be Jatin Kuberkar.
