This review is from: The Wine Diet (Paperback)
This is an interesting and informative book by a doctor. Also heartening to read of the research he has done into wine drinkers and their health. I'd recommend this book — am still reading through it. The service from awesome books was exemplary, as usual


The Invisible Woman: The Story of Nelly Ternan and Charles Dickens
The Invisible Woman: The Story of Nelly Ternan and Charles Dickens
by Claire Tomalin
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.49

3.0 out of 5 stars A well researched book — made a great movie., 11 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Can't say I enjoyed this book nearly as much as Clair Tomalin's wonderful biography of Charles Dickens. Obviously, Tomalin had to do an enormous amount of digging to get the facts of Nelly's life, which had been hidden in her lifetime. The biography suffers from this, but as the basis of the movie of the same name, it is excellent. Buy the book and please see the movie, which really brings it to life.

The Forbidden City: Heart of Imperial China (New Horizons)
The Forbidden City: Heart of Imperial China (New Horizons)
by Gilles Béguin
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.62

5.0 out of 5 stars and valued for the wonderful illustrations and fascinating information, 11 Aug. 2014
In a recent flood, I lost this much valued copy of The Forbidden City, which I have had for many years, and valued for the wonderful illustrations and fascinating information. I'm not Chinese — the name Ching is of Cornish origin — but I've always been very interested in China, ever since I was young. Losing this book was heartbreaking. So I was thrilled to see that it was still available. I ordered it one day and it arrived the next — in perfect condition. Wonderful service from this seller, for a book that anyone interested in the magnificent history and architecture of this fascinating country, will enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A textbook of the advertising industry, 30 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you've never been employed in advertising but wanna be, you really need to read this book to find out the basics. If you're slogging away in advertising and don't really understand it — this will make it all clear. Lots of excellent advice. A book you need close at hand to refer to when others give you the wrong advice!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very effective., 19 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have had constipation since I was a child. I've taken all sorts of laxatives, many of which are addictive. Finally stopped taking anything except Epsom salts (on recommendation of a senior gastroenterologist) but recently I was given this to take before a hospital scan and found it so excellent that I was grateful to be able to buy it over the counter. It works without any pain or strain, a and I would recommend it to anyone with chronic constipation. You do have to drink plenty of water before and after. But this is true with any laxative.

I will not necessarily take it regularly but when I am going through a bad patch, I know I can rely on Picolax.
