5.0 out of 5 stars Great Xmas Gift Idea 30 Nov 2011
Format:Paperback
This is a great book. Simple and easy to read, which is in itself 'Calming'. This is a book that is ideal as a gift, especially at this time of year - Xmas, taking the stress out of what to buy people. Every bookshelf should have a copy! It is full of useful tips and importantly gets the reader to think about things differently.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spiritual malaise? Here's the antidote 22 Nov 2011

Just the ticket when suffering from spiritual malaise, 'The Brilliant Book of Calm' is written with the down-to-earth warmth of a best friend. Filled with inspiring quotes and anecdotes, it offers a wealth of innovative yet practical techniques for the mentally mashed. Easily digestible format. Loved it.

Format:Paperback
As someone who occasionally kicks slow-moving/trolly-carrying/annoying people on tube platforms and pretends it was an accident, I didn't expect to be instantly chilled out when I received this book for Christmas last year. I was wrong. Beautifully written, Tania Ahsan's lyrical prose soothes while she dispenses helpful tips that work in real life situations. And if all else fails, then at a hefty 20 x 16cm, it's a handy weapon to beat offensive fellow commuters with.

Even if you're not looking to follow advice, Tania's witty language is mighty engaging (also downright funny) in a way that has the wise words seeping in and making you relaxed enough to probably, actually do some easing towards calm in your life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wise words for the modern calm seeker 7 Dec 2011
Format:Paperback
I was gifted this book, and have spent several sessions browsing it with my daughter for useful advice. We've found simple solutions that are bang up to date, and have had a good laugh in the process. It is less stuffy and righteous than some other publications of this kind, whilst presenting a wide range of real-life situations with practical solutions. There are words of wisdom here that resonate with a wonderful simplicity, and it's beautifully written too.
