His latest book is why Philip Yancey is still ‘my man’!

For three decades, I've been a fan of Philip Yancey. Of all the authors I've read in the world of Christian writings, I've rarely come across someone as clued-in, and as clueless, as him!

Fiction Book Review #2 – The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas (YA fiction on the Holocaust)

But since I'd left … Continue reading Fiction Book Review #2 – The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas (YA fiction on the Holocaust)

Feel Good Book Review #2 – The world still can’t get enough of feel-good quotes!

It was the second of three atypical days in my household last week and reading a book, even reviewing one, was the last thing on my mind!

Unfortunately, the thunderous noise generated by this untimely renovation lasted from 9 … Continue reading Feel Good Book Review #2 – The world still can’t get enough of feel-good quotes!

Fiction Book Review #1 – Me Before You

Gosh, it feels like ages since I last read a novel! The last time was a couple of young adult fiction books I read in January by David Levithan, called "Every Day" and "Someday". Imaginative, brilliant, and hard-to-put-down. Definitely worth the time if you've not read them yet. Proof that even now at 51, I'm … Continue reading Fiction Book Review #1 – Me Before You

ASD Book Review #5 – “A Tiny Space”

Back in July 2019, I posted my first book review that dealt with the subject of ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder). There, aside from reviewing an excellent book "A Regular Guy: Growing Up with Autism", I also created four categories that I felt ASD books could be classified into. The four categories I described in that … Continue reading ASD Book Review #5 – “A Tiny Space”
