3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and thought provoking but vague and repetitive, 13 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was recommended this as an interesting read and if you consider it to be true then it certainly is. Either way it caught my attention for its subject matter.

Marshall claims God/Angelic Presence speaks to him with information regarding life beyond Earth. This is a tale of a greater community of life with echoes of Earth's development, trade across nations, allies, secrets, repressive regimes and open societies guarding their freedoms.

In that way it is believable but what makes me sceptical is that if the message is from a higher power it is repetitive and quite uninspiring. You would think that a higher power could inspire and write in an engaging and persuasive manner, but this book is far from that.

The book talks of connecting with the Knowledge within but gives no hints how to do this despite constant references to it.

As such I believe Marshall does hear voices and has told and interesting tale but they are likely to be his own imagination, the book talks of Earth's imminent alien presence and human awareness but was 'channeled' in 2008 nearly 6 years ago. Sorry not a believer yet.


Wesley: The Story of a Remarkable Owl
Wesley: The Story of a Remarkable Owl
by Stacey O'Brien
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A remarkable love story, 9 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A delightful book that transports the reader through an intense relationship albeit with an owl. This makes the love story even more fascinating as she sacrifices so much, but in doing gains even more.

Wesley is one amazing owl such a character but never tame as we imagine a domestic animal to be. You could feel the love from the author and the happiness the relationship brought her, I learned so much about Owls too which was nice, a lovely happy and unusual read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy read and interesting worth a look, 22 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Richard writes very personally which make for an engaging and personal read, he pulls a lot of information from many sources both scientific and individual to present his thoughts on the subject. I enjoyed the transcripts of certain hypnotic sessions and personal tales interspersed with his life tales, well worth an easy read.


Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon's Journey into the Afterlife
Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon's Journey into the Afterlife
by Eben Alexander
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.79

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing story and account, 10 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Eben should really be dead he was so close to it how he came back is amazing. His experience of the things that happened to him in his coma coupled with his knowledge of the brain's working has left him with an incredible personal insight into life beyond death.

A strong message of love and forgiveness that defies rational scientific explanation, maybe because it is true, read it to form your own opinion.

Where's Your Caravan?: My Life on Football's B-Roads
Where's Your Caravan?: My Life on Football's B-Roads
Price: £2.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read, should be given to all aspiring footballers, 10 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book is a sober message that not all football is 250k a week prima donna's. Chris's journey through the lower leagues is a fascinating insight into the world of football and the dreams of probably every young footballer.

There is a lot of heartache along the way and a dawning realisation that he will not play in the top leagues or for England. The tale runs by seasons interspersed with a little of what he is doing now. My only real criticism is their is too much detail of his children's lives, he clearly is a proud father but I did not buy the book to read about his kids favourite food, tv or talents which is boring.

Other than that the honest details about his own faults, the managers and players he has worked with and mistakes he made add up to an enjoyable and easy read for anyone interested in football true side. I hope he does well on the managing side as his experience could stand him in good stead.


The Psychopath Test
The Psychopath Test
by Jon Ronson
Edition: Paperback
Price: £2.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Leave the House, 28 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Psychopath Test (Paperback)
After reading this highly insightful and informative book on the nature and number of psychopaths/mental illness around us I am now house bound with fear!! Well almost, the book is a superb trip through the Psychology business and its effect on us as a society as increasing numbers are diagnosed with 'problems' then medicated to the hilt.

It's a shocking expose well told and with some great personal humour, Ronson carries the tale along at a good pace too to keep you gripped. He has a talent for finding life at the edges and unusual, after this book I think his next one should be to find the totally sane, happy and well balanced people in society so we can know what that looks like too, I guess his search will be harder.

2.0 out of 5 stars Badly written, odd and lacks a storyline, 1 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As my title this book was very poor, it had very little of a central well written thread, was clumsy and awkward to read and basically little more than the authors rant, avoid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb read educational, insightful and well written, 1 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book taught me so much on the subject of economics and its immpact to our lives now. The 50 ideas are highly readable, succinctly explained and summed up with a historical context and timeline. They will also be helpful to me in future as a reference, the author has done a great service explaining the subject to those of us with a limited knowledge, while making it enjoyable to read, thank you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fast paced read and entertaining, 1 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book is a good quick read and what happens to Dave is shocking. It teaches you 3 things.

1. The Spanish police are not to be trusted at all
2. Neither is the legal system
3. English journalists really are the dregs

No surprises but seeing it in black and white brings it to life.

I am not sure it is all true though, you may have to be sceptical about his side of things but whatever way it makes you think, don't get arrested in Spain.
