2.0 out of 5 stars Poor proof reading, 24 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The obvious lack of proof reading had the effect of breaking the otherwise good story line - come on, this is the 21st century and books are still being published without proper proof reading, very poor...

5.0 out of 5 stars A magical journey of faith, spiritualism and of miracles, 3 July 2006
This review is from: Credo (Paperback)
This book is a magical journey of faith, spiritualism and of miracles that stands out like a beacon, in our clean world of science, technology and materialism. The story is absorbing and it's difficult to put it down. The locations and characters are richly described and wholly believable. This novel is thought provoking and invites the reader into a world transported away, where real life and death hinges on failure of the crops or if the plague sets in, something we in the developed world cannot fathom any more. I personally found this novel provided a catalyst for me to re-think my perspective on life, and for that I am eternally grateful.

1.0 out of 5 stars Darkroom To Digital: Photoshop for Black and White Photograp, 27 Nov. 2005
I’m not sure where this book best sits ?
It’s not a book that is specifically technical nor does it specially focus on issues of art. It’s sort of lost in between, but never quite there. The style of writing appears to be a little self indulgent, and in my opinion, this makes it difficult for the reader to connect and align his or herself to what Eddie wants to communicate. It’s almost as if this was written by Eddie for Eddie. For me this missed the mark by a long-shot and I was neither moved nor educated by the content – I was hoping for more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recovery from Co-Dependency, 10 Oct. 2003
Although this book appears to be primarily written for the therapist, I personally found the objective descriptions of the different processes and stages that the ‘client’ goes through particularly valuable. Unlike many other atypical psychology books that tend to delve too deeply into masses of theory, this book describes theory and immediately provides supporting case studies to back up the ideology.
If you honestly acknowledge as an individual, that in your deep core things are not quite right and you just can’t understand some of your undesirable behavioural patterns, it’s quite likely think you may have suffered some form of interruption to your natural development in childhood years. This book helps to explain the origins of ‘natural and normal’ childhood development and compares this to interrupted or not ‘normal’ childhood development and as a result how this can subsequently have a knock-on affect later in life with undesirable adult behavioural traits. What’s also important and extremely beneficial to the reader, who may have suffered problems, is that the authors describes how they have approached some of the various issues that their clients have presented to them, and although I’m not suggesting that it’s a alternative or replacement for professional help; it does offer a valuable explanation of the mechanics of what’s going on.
The first stage of recovery arguably is understanding and acknowledging why things are like the way they are, and perhaps more importantly for all of those trapped sufferers; it offers hope that with the right help, they can escape the awful prison sentence of Co-Dependency, even if they don’t know that they have probably been sufferering for years.
