The Missionary Position: Mother Teresa in Theory and Practice
The Missionary Position: Mother Teresa in Theory and Practice
Price: £5.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Saint Hitchens oops Teresa, 20 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I find this book difficult to review. Christopher Hitchens is this accomplished writer who tells as it is. Mother Teresa is nearly a saint and has done so many different good things in the world. Maybe I was not intelligent enough to understand how the book was supposed to be aimed. Maybe with a more critical and intelligent eye can fully appreciate this book. I enjoyed it up to my intelligence level.

A Man's World: The Double Life of Emile Griffith
Price: £5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A different world, 12 Mar. 2016
If you can imagine yourself sixty years ago in the world of sport and then saying that one of the boxing world champions is gay you would have looked at each person and said no if mentioned.
Emile Griffiths was one of the greatest boxers of the era. He fought the best and nearly beat the best. The story is not just about boxing. The tragedies take you to thepart you try to ignore

A simple guide to the subject with basic guidelines. Some might say it is common sense but it is only sense if you understand the situation

Money and Football; A Soccernomics Guide
by Stefan Szymanski
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Rich man, poor man, 11 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well written and surprisingly understanding for a dry subject. Soccer and its economics has been always there but now the business is not run by the local businessmen but multi billionaires on the top table which slowly dripping down in the Championship. The lower leagues have gone backwards as they have no support from the top table


Dixie - The Autobiography of Dixie McNeil: The Story of a Wrexham Legend
Dixie - The Autobiography of Dixie McNeil: The Story of a Wrexham Legend
Price: £2.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Dixie McGoals, 11 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Dixie - to a Preston fan, was a bit of an enigma. He was an amazing scorer of goals in one of the good if not great Wrexham sides. Growing up Dixies name just meant goals.The story tells the warts and all story of a genuine bloke who did what he did and did not shout about it. I have no idea what a player like him would be worth or his wages


Last Train to Istanbul: A Novel
Last Train to Istanbul: A Novel
Price: £3.98

5.0 out of 5 stars Last train to Istanbul, 11 Mar. 2016
I was open-minded about reading this book because I did not know anything about this book. The book has many layers and different relationships which fully resonate in different parts of me. The historical element of the book seems to be well researched and gives the feel that you are in those years. I felt I worked in the ministry and the consulate and was stepping into the city of Paris and Marseilles. Great book, please give it a go.

Gang Wars of the North - The Inside Story of the Deadly Battle Between Viv Graham and Lee Duffy: Viv Graham and Lee Duffy - Too Hard to Live, Too Young to Die
Price: £3.79

4.0 out of 5 stars Watch out, 26 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Tries to show the human side of the gangster and that the subject is not all tarnished with the same story. Gives an insight to the underworld of the North East. Felt there was a lot of heresy but enough meat to allow you to chew the fat.


I Believe In Miracles: The Remarkable Story of Brian Clough's European Cup-winning Team
I Believe In Miracles: The Remarkable Story of Brian Clough's European Cup-winning Team
Price: £4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Young Man, well done, 26 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Yes I do. The story of Nottingham Forest's rise from the ashes under the managerial team of Clough and Taylor brings back so many memories. You forget this may never happen again in the Champions league and yes I am writing this in a year where Leicester are leading the Premiership. The jigsaw needed all the pieces to fit even when they should not have done. Great Story well written.


Head On - Ian Botham: The Autobiography
Head On - Ian Botham: The Autobiography
by Sir Ian Botham
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars 1981 and more, 11 Feb. 2016
Listening to this audiobook. What a delight. The story is very well written and the words have a lot of meaning. Sir Ian has done a lot of good and bad things in his life but there is an honesty to the writing. This is a proper autobiography where you find out about the man


SIMMO: The Whole Truth
SIMMO: The Whole Truth
Price: £4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Round the track in four bends, 7 Feb. 2016
Sometimes a book will kindle a forgotten set of emotions. I remember a time when speedway on World of Sport was one of the best watched sport on telly. Lee, Mauger, Crump, Olsen, Briggs and Penhall were the biggest names of the sport. Just below that was Simmons, Jessup, Boocock and Nielsen were just below. A great unknown account of a superstar in a different era. Not forgot
