Review: Safe People: How to Find Relationships That Are Good for You and Avoid Those That Aren’t

Safe People: How to Find Relationships That Are Good for You and Avoid Those That Aren't
Safe People: How to Find Relationships That Are Good for You and Avoid Those That Aren’t by Henry Cloud
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I started this book almost 20 years ago, when I was part of teams helping people with these sorts of problems. When I saw that it was available for Kindle, I added it, and I’m glad I did.

A lot of excellent advice, frequently supported by anecdotes.

Very much recommended.

Review: Party of One

Party of One
Party of One by Michael Harris
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Michael Harris has clearly done a lot of research, and has come to an honest disdain for the Prime Minister, but this really isn’t nearly the book it could have been. Is it the need for better editing (so that, for example, Robert Fife is introduced only once), or for a less polemical stance? Not sure, and I’m certainly no apologist for Mr. Harper.

While it isn’t as up to date, Lawrence Martin’s book from a few years ago was much more satisfying.

Why the 4-star rating then? Partly because I felt (and shared) the author’s passion, and he did conduct a number of interviewers with those caught in the PM’s crosshairs.

Review: Die Again

Die Again
Die Again by Tess Gerritsen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Excellent, if the ***** didn’t already tell you that.

For a while I was wondering how the two strands of this novel (no spoiler alerts necessary) would come together, but was satisfied with the way Tess Gerritsen did it.

I would like to read more about a couple of the new characters in this book, although it is unlikely in both cases (since one of them is, apparently, dead).

Now, back to read the books in this series I’ve missed.
