5.0 out of 5 stars A superb read, 30 Nov 2009
This review is from: Harte (Paperback)
I am proud that Ireland has produced a sports book that is up there with those written by Phil Jackson, Vince Lombardi and Clive Woodward. This book gives a great insight into Gaelic footballs place in rural Ireland. At the heart of the story is the importance of family and community. He gives an honest account of how he was affected by the deaths of two of his players and how he dealt with this personally and as a leader to others affected by these tragedies. It is remarkable how he and his team have travelled from tragedy to triumph. This book is a great story of success and failure; it will be a great read for gaa fans but also for those interested in sport in general, in coaching, business, religion and faith.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book, 28 Feb 2008
I love to cook good honest food that is not up it own behind. I use this book all the time. The food tastes good, its fun and exciting and you can find the ingredients in your garden or the local Tesco's (sorry Jamie, or Sainsbury's).

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Book, 15 Aug 2007
I really enjoyed this book. At first i was concerned that Sandra was taking no responsability for her circumstances but by the end she showed a lot of grace.

The conditions she has had to deal with in both Bangkok and Britain is remarkable and the lack of justice when she returns to Britain is disgraceful.

Fair play to her on surviving and on writing a good book.

5.0 out of 5 stars We must help our young men, 12 July 2007
As a parent and a person who works with young men, this has addressed so many concerns and fears about bringing up a son and has changed my youth work dramatically. Our young people are facing a suicide epidemic, many are inolved in anti social behaviour, there is a gap between the generations and good male role models are disappearing. Anyone that has anything to do with young men should read this... it asks hard questions and gives a well put argument and some great ideas for the solution.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good read, 12 July 2007
This review is from: Growing Out of Trouble (Hardcover)
I work with young people, i love growing vegatables and i enjoy reading so i was as happy as a pig in you know what with this book. I really loved the way he was very honest about his own struggles and about the challenges of working with heroin addicts. This is no fairy tale, everything didn't go as perfectly as he first thought it might. This was about real life heroes working with real people with real stories and the results were remarkable.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful book, 12 July 2007
This review is from: Final Harvest (Paperback)
This book will challenge all of us even those who think the church is better than God. I loved it and have read it over and over again. It is an amazing story full of hope. It has lifted me from a life of despair to one of hope, my doubts have changed to faith. how can that be a bad thing?

1.0 out of 5 stars I wish i hadn't bought this, 12 July 2007
I was interested in an insight into the Dunblane Massacre. this book says very little about it. I only read a litle bit but it just rambling rubbish, obsessed with filth, with very litle insight. I would never want to be familiar with this author... don't buy this book.
