4.0 out of 5 stars surprise find, 28 Mar 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of my surprise finds for 2008. Leading through from early poverty stricken childhood to his ordination, Father Joe tells of the pitfalls along the way. Matriculation is one and his down to earth character comes across as he argues his point. From someone who "knew his station" in life he eventually tried his best to affect other people's prospects working mainly with prostitutes and fallen girls in East London. His supporting cast also feature and he does not come across as a do-gooder. Excellent read

3.0 out of 5 stars entertaining yes, educating.....possibly, 28 Mar 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For a read it's great, to educate you'd need someone who never watched the news, read a book and never listened to other people. Some of you may have recognised this person. It's an ipod wearing teenager usually sat behind you on the bus. For the rest of us some of it is funny but borrow rather than invest

4.0 out of 5 stars over 60? East Londoner?, 28 Mar 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For anyone over 60 who comes from this area it's great. Trams galore and lots of people you may recognise. Not insubstantial by any means. It's short on words but other books are around to do that better and after all the clue is in the title!

Actionable Web Analytics: Using Data to Make Smart Business Decisions

Edition: Paperback
Price: 16.64

4.0 out of 5 stars from scratch, 28 Mar 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For someone new to analytics this one has not proven to be ideal. It is aimed more at the marketing end of the scale and doesn't concentrate as well as others on the "how to". Having said that it is an excellent business book, just not ideal for me

4.0 out of 5 stars follow on, 28 Mar 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Friends of Father Joe (Paperback)
Excellent book following on from the story of Father Joe's parish. Apparently lots of people wrote and asked about the girls and these are their stories.
Not as readable as the first book

4.0 out of 5 stars earrings are excellent but........, 28 Mar 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I chose a known manufacturer to guarantee quality for my first jewellery purchase and I wasn't disappointed, presentation even was good enough for a gift. However having ordered from Amazon itself rather than a marketplace seller I was surprised to have to wait in excess of 3 weeks for Amazon s.a to deliver. Fortunately this was for me not a gift.
