The author had earlier written about Adyar for the local newspaper, Adyar Times. This book also showcases some of the great men and women of Adyar, with whom he had interacted closely.

Review: Historian V Sriram said historian S Muthiah had the highest opinion of Mr.Narasiah and the two of them had collaborated on a coffee table book on the 125 years of the Madras Port Trust. On the topic of the book, he recalled that Mr.Muthaih would say that every locality had a history, a story to be told and documented, and that this book covered a huge gap as far as Adyar was concerned. He said so much effort had gone into the documentation of Adyar as Neighbourhood.
