5.0 out of 5 stars A superb read, 30 Nov 2009
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.

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.
