Freed to Lead: How Your Identity in Christ Can Transform Any Leadership Role
Freed to Lead: How Your Identity in Christ Can Transform Any Leadership Role

5.0 out of 5 stars With remarkable candour, Rod Woods has written a book ..., 4 Mar. 2016
With remarkable candour, Rod Woods has written a book that every Christian leader will want to read and read again. Unlike most leadership books, this one assumes that the task can be done by anyone - as long as you are self aware and understand the elephant traps that could lie in the way. With rich references to Biblical texts and deep compassion, wit and humour, every church leader should have this book as a constant reference point and encourager, especially when times get tough.


Resilience: A Practical Guide for Coaches
Resilience: A Practical Guide for Coaches
by Carole Pemberton
Edition: Paperback
Price: £22.49

5.0 out of 5 stars An all round practical book that every coach should buy, 2 Jun. 2015
I know I'm biased since I'm the Series Ed, but this book is a seriously helpful addition to the coaching literature. So many coaches worry needlessly about whether they are 'getting into therapy territory' when their clients present after those all too human setbacks and disappointments. This book gives you so many crisp, useful, tried and tested ways of working with clients who seem to have 'lost their mojo'. It's clearly written and Carole's extensive experience shines through every word. It's a book you will read and consult again and again.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for me, 19 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Maddening: writing in the present tense throughout is just lazy writing. the three 'different' voices all sounded the same. Ending contrived and implausible

2.0 out of 5 stars Trying too hard, 12 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Unfortunately this didn't grip me at all and I got fed up with it about two thirds of the way through and started skipping chunks. Trying too hard to be 'literary' for my taste. Couldn't see the point of the different fonts and found the main character dull. Can't really see what the critics have liked so much.

2.0 out of 5 stars Badly written page turner, 1 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a novel where ambition has outrun the author's ability to write or create characters. I did not want to hear so much detail about Alma's father, his sailing adventures, nor about mosses, nor about the topography of Taihiti. Mostly, though, I found the book poorly written, full of tired language and cliche I could not believe for a moment in Ambrose and his implausible story. She knows how to create interest in plot, but I got impatient. Brilliant researcher, great idea, disappointing execution. Also a lot too much about masturbation, as in her earlier book. I notice that other novelists have been kind in their reviews, but that these reviews are striking in being written so much better. Stick to journalism, Elizabeth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny and quirky, 30 Nov. 2013

A lovely book. Innocent, intelligent young woman plunged into chaotic household where famous names offer culinary advice, gossip etc and the two kids give their views on the world. Laughed a lot while reading it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful, 30 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A cheap and useful buy. Having read other reviews I did not even try to attach it to the wall. It just stays on my bathroom shelf. Excellent for middle of the night visits! One problem was that it proved very fiddly to get it to work in the middle position, ie not off permanently, not on permanently, buti managed it eventually.

2.0 out of 5 stars A bit over complicated for me, 9 Aug. 2013
This review is from: Beautiful Ruins (Kindle Edition)
Lost interest at various points where the plot seemed jerky and didn't know where it was going. The Hollywood scenes have lots of momentum and humour. The Italian plot and characters very implausible and the finale just ludicrous.
