The remarkable story of Eamonn Magee's life takes in a childhood lived during the height of The Troubles, a youth spent involved with the IRA, and the constant presence of drink, drugs, gambling and violence throughout his life. It may be hard to believe but it was against the background of all this that Eamonn won the WBU world welterweight and Commonwealth light welterweight titles.

The author, Paul Gibson, has managed to decipher a very dark, very troubled, very flawed individual who happened to have an exceptional gift to box at the highest world level.

The Lost Soul of Eamonn Magee reads like the screenplay of the kind of gritty rags-to-riches-to-rags boxing story that Hollywood producers seem to love.

No Tears Left: Biafra to Bosnia
No Tears Left provides a thought-provoking, insightful and moving account of one doctor’s experience in providing voluntary medical care in some of the world’s poorest and most troubled regions for over fifty years.

Dr Colbert’s book of selected memoirs is a personal account of his involvement in natural disasters, famines and wars in Africa and the Far East. He talks of the misery and despair of countless people caught up in such events and of the response of the West. He criticises things he feels strongly about and questions the efficacy of many aid projects. He unravels the complicated historical background to events in a manner that whets the reader’s appetite to
probe deeper and brings us on a journey from the searing summer heat of Ethiopia to deep winter in Kosovo. You will visit the famine in Biafra, the genocide in Rwanda and the refugee camps in Ethiopia, Montenegro and Burundi. You will learn about witch doctors and even be moved by the faith of a young doctor facing the derision of all around him. This is a story that could not be made up.
No Tears Left will appeal to all of those with an interest in world events, aid activity and global humanity.
