What shines through from the broadcaster and veteran peace campaigner's writing is the quick, dark humour of the 'lads' from the Saltshaker and his own eternally and naive optimism that everything was going to be alright - despite the routine thievery and the odd bit of destruction. --- The Irish News

The book covers Tony first Adult job working as a Protestant Christian Youth worker in the social and economically deprived Catholic area of North Belfast (as opposed to the social and economically deprived Protestant area of North Belfast).
Know of Disco run by his Dad and also the great youth club/scout leader eluded to.
Brought many names to mind including young people in Streetbeat and The Centre etc.
A lesson in believing, trying and still believing when times get tough.
A very good insight as all his books have been into the troubles in Northern Ireland
I read all four of his books in succession, eagerly awaiting each and have not been disappointed in any one of them.
Not many laughs out loud that's for sure but interesting take on trying to see things from the ' other side'.
No doubt a worth while experience but couldn't help thinking half way through the book his search, sadly, for changing attitudes and peace was going nowhere.
