1.0 out of 5 stars Real Estate Section missing? 4 Dec. 2004
By Greenwich Living - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
An attempt at a comprehensive guide book of Greenwich, Connecticut compiled by a Greenwich Real Estate firm. The only entry in the Real Estate Category for a real estate firm is the publisher's own Real Estate Company. I don't think I would buy another edition of this book since most of the information is readily found either at the Public Library, on the internet or in other places in Greenwich for free. Why pay $12.95 (price on the book's back cover) for incorrect and outdated information? The cutesy illustrations and commentaries are not worth the price, in my opinion. For restaurant reviews I would stick with the Zagat Survey. The other sections of the book can be found entirely online.

By Mary P. Beaudry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
While the 5th edition was current - this was the best Guide imaginable! But now, the 6th edition (totally updated) is now available. I couldn't live in Greenwich without it!

5.0 out of 5 stars From the Author 23 Jan. 2005
By Gerald Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Guide is now in its 6th edition. You need to search for it by its exact name: Anderson Guide to Enjoying Greenwich. For some reason, only the 5th edition comes up when you search for the "Greenwich Guide" The praise we have received for our Anderson Guide to Enjoying Greenwich is overwhelming and warms my heart. The talented Glenville Maverick Cheerleaders are on the front cover of the 6th edition. Jerry and I are grateful to so many Greenwich residents for their support and for their enthusiastic appreciation for providing the town of Greenwich with a useful guide. The Greenwich Library continues to order copies. They keep copies at the information desk and at community answers to help people with their questions. The Historical Society has the copies of our past editions in its archives. We are pleased to be documenting our town's many events, restaurants, shops and tips about Greenwich way of life.

The Guide is a list of our favorites...simply that. It is not a book of advertisements. No place mentioned in the Guide had any idea that it would be included. Establishments and programs are listed because we like them. Although the Guide is about Enjoying Greenwich, you will note many selections are outside of Greenwich's town limits. These easy to reach places complement our many in-town resources.

Initially, many years ago, our first Guide was prepared for our real estate clients. Then the calls came in-their friends needed a copy. The owner of Just Books saw it and said we must publish it, and that is where it started. Our initial reason for writing it has not changed. We know finding favorite spots takes awhile. We have lived in Greenwich for many years, and we hope the resources in the Guide will help everyone moving into town feel right at home.

The new 6th edition has over 160 restaurant reviews. Jerry and I anonymously visit each one at least two times before we write the review. We are looking at the whole experience-food, ambience and service. If a restaurant is disappointing in too many ways, we do not include it. Restaurant reviewing is a professional responsibility. We have a great deal to do with a restaurant's success or failure. Jerry and I have extensive food and restaurant backgrounds. I am the author of the Complete Book of Homemade Ice Cream and several other cookbooks. I am a cookbook addict with over 4000 cookbooks in my own collection. For a number of years we owned and operated a small vineyard. Tasting foods and wines and knowing how they are prepared is greatly helpful in reviewing quality. I am an interior designer, a professional member of the American Society of Interior Designers; and before devoting myself full time to real estate, I designed restaurants-two in Greenwich. Many people remember the popular restaurant, Morgan, open for many years in Greenwich that I designed. Knowing the requirements of good restaurant design is helpful in reviewing. We love finding new discoveries in dining, and we hope our readers of the Guide will enjoy them too.
