Yoga For Dummies

This review is from: Yoga For Dummies (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a good reference book for yoga with very clear explanations and chapters covering yoga for all including pregnancy, children, seniors, etc. Plenty of illustrations and cautions in all the right places where you need to be careful. The garish cover and cheap phone directory type paper inside are a world apart from you usual yoga guide, however while there are the usual spiritual references, it is a practical guide. It is a US edition referring to US teachers and schools of yoga, although that does not affect the majority of the book which is a good reference material. The For Dummies guides also give lots of links to additional online material which I think really adds to the value and you can check that out before you buy http://www.dummies.com/search.html?query=yoga !

4.0 out of 5 stars Top notch!, 4 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Well I thought this was rather over the top as regards a tool kit for a barbeque! Gave 4 stars as I think it is more than you need. However the tools are great quality and the case very solid. The price for this quality is really very reasonable if you barbeque a lot. It is quite bulky all in the case, but if you wash and put the tools back in the case then everything is handy and clean for next time. Good value overall and a nice present for the keen outdoor chef!

3.0 out of 5 stars More suited for younger children, 4 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My daughter is 7, the top of the recommended age range for this, and the bracelet would not fit around her wrist without being really uncomfortable. She played with it for a bit but it soon got discarded in favour of more interesting games on the computer or tablet. When I came to give it another go, it would not charge up so whether it is broken or damaged from neglect/abuse I do not know! I think there are much better ways to get a kid active and with this toy they are still distracted by a screen! A regular step counter and reward system would work better long term I think, running, walking and playing outdoors together and with friends. Anyway it wasn't for us, but I can see the appeal for younger children that are perhaps not yet so tech-savvy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nothing like the illustrations, 4 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My daughter had seen this on the telly and was absolutely delighted when I gave it to her. The kit has everything you need to make clay beads and we really enjoyed the process of making them with the fairly easy to follow instructions BUT the results look NOTHING like they do on the box! I believe it would be impossible to make the illustrated beads with this kit - the clay is too squishy. The beads change from a round shape when you use the tool to insert the grommets. So then you end up smoothing it out and end up with flat sided rather than round beads. And while the designs that you create by rolling the bead on the dryer rack moulds look OK, they then get eroded when you apply the glaze. I have no idea how they do them highlighted like in the illustration as the instructions just say to coat the whole bead in the same colour glaze. In addition they give you 2 bracelets on which to hang the beads, which looked nice, but broke immediately my dughter and her friend went to put them on.

So it is a bit of a con, however I am still giving it 4 stars simply because it still gives a lot of creative play and we had several hours enjoying playing with it making lumpy mishapen beads! If you buy this my advice would be throw away the box and don't expect results as shown! You will be disappointed, no matter your skill level.

It would also benefit from having something to carry all the kit in. It comes in a great big box that you can't really use to store everything once you have opened it. Fortunately I had a shoe box handy that did the job otherwise we'd have lost bits after the first play.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sleek looks and great sound, 28 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Very easy to connect to any advice I've tried it with (although only one at a time!). Really nice sleek design and looks and feels quality. The sound is wonderful at low-medium volume - how you would normally listen to music as background, with good bass and clarity. Louder (party mode!) it does struggle as other reviews have said. The charge lasts ages and it holds it's charge well if you only use it occasionally.

Some negative points - the controls are a little hard to work out/find as they are not very clearly labelled. OK once you get used to it The carry case is a bit unnecessary - it is a hard case and quite a bit larger than the device which seems fairly robust to sling in a bag anyway!

Overall I am really impressed with this as has been anyone I've shown it to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top toothbrush, 28 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Great product. Teeth feel really clean and it is pleasant and gentle to use. The brush is a nice small size with a good shape to get in hard to reach spaces. It will automatically switch off after 2 minutes so you know when you have done enough. The charge lasts forever so I took it on a week's holiday no problem or need for charger. The charger itself is for a bathroom shaver socket so I needed to get an adaptor but aside from that it's ideal.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The wheels don't roll very well and my daughter found the plastic tongue part very uncomfortable. They look nice and adjus for size easily but these have ended up with little use. I bought her some soft boot Rio Rollers instead which she is far happier with. These may be OK for a bit of fun but once they have learned to balance and skate they need something with more roll and flexibility (in my opinion - as a 70s roller disco kid and modern day roller derby player!).

4.0 out of 5 stars Plenty for players of all abilities, 20 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Gave this to my husband to review. As a player for 25 years it generated some mirth but this book is not for dummies. There is a lot for an experienced player to learn here, particularly if you were never schooled in music theory. He's found plenty of interest in here and has subsequently purchased other guitar books in the series. The For Dummies books are great at breaking things down and the online support is very good too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous stories, 19 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A book full of excellent true first-hand stories. This is a great book for a quick, inspiring read. I'm only part way through but every story so far has been excellent, entertaining, engaging, and each only a few pages long. The book is well presented, with the stories organised in themes - "Innocents Abroad", "Generations" etc., and each ends with a few biographical notes on the storyteller. I would love to listen to these live and hope The Moth takes off in UK.

4.0 out of 5 stars The dress is great and was perfect for a fancy dress kids run, 19 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The dress is great and was perfect for a fancy dress kids run. It has a sparkly layer over the skirt that I was not expecting which looks very nice. The head piece was useless - made from foam and an elastic band. We made our own from cardboard, sticky backed plastic, a headband and a jewel! It was much better. Would be better if the wig came with it and I did think it rather pricy for what you get.
