This book is awesome! I always read this book when I feel bored. Such nostalgic and memorable. Each chapter tells how the writer lived around 1980s as kid. From school, playing outside home and many more. Very recommended to parents especially who lived around 80-90s to tell their kids how fun to lived without games, computers and phones. This series now has 5th book.
