Translating as a Purposeful Activity: Functionalist Approaches Explained (Translation Theories Explored)
Translating as a Purposeful Activity: Functionalist Approaches Explained (Translation Theories Explored)
by Christiane Nord
Edition: Paperback
Price: £18.20

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic textbook - a must have for a linguist, 8 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I would recommend the book not only to those interested in translations but also to those who would like to learn more about linguistics and theory on study of languages. A good, thick textbook, written in an academic yet clear language, can be used by translators and language theory students alike


Introducing Translation Studies: Theories and Applications
Introducing Translation Studies: Theories and Applications
by Jeremy Munday
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars A must have text on general translation theory, 8 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A relatively thin book, however, it does contain basic and valid information about language studies and translation theory/practice. A good intro to the topic, recommended as a textbook.


In Other Words: A Coursebook on Translation
In Other Words: A Coursebook on Translation
by Mona Baker
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars A very good textbook, 8 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Interestingly written, easy to read, contains a good selection of facts - a very good introduction to translation as a science, regardless language studied.


Yoga For Pregnancy And Birth: Teach Yourself
Yoga For Pregnancy And Birth: Teach Yourself
Price: £5.03

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic read for prenatal times, 4 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have tested this book on my pregnant friends and relatives and they were thrilled. The autor goes through various exercises (or more precisely, asanas) and exercise plans for all stages of pregnancy. She adresses the most common ailments and potential challeneges that may hinder a future mother's well-being with an array of poses and yogic solutions. These has been tested by Uma herself throught many years of her career - I would decidedly trust her authority on the topic of prenatal breathing/movement for the maximum well-being of future mothers. Cannot recommend enough.


Mother's Breath: A Definitive Guide to Yoga Breathing, Sound and Awareness Practices During Pregnancy, Birth, Post-natal Recovery and Mothering
Mother's Breath: A Definitive Guide to Yoga Breathing, Sound and Awareness Practices During Pregnancy, Birth, Post-natal Recovery and Mothering
by Uma Dinsmore-Tuli
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars An instant classic on breathing - not only for mothers!, 4 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Uma Dinsmore-Tuli is an institution in the world of yoga for female well being. She wrote numerous books but this is by far my favourite one on pranayama (yogic breathing). Author's intention - I reckon- was to create a clear, readable, step-by-step guideline on various breathing techniques for mothers and mothers to be, alongside a very good chapter dedicated especially to yoga teachers and health practicioners, who may find these techinques helpful for their clients. The goal has been reached and exceeded - the result is, a great text on breathing and relaxation, that can be used not only be mothers or yoga practicioners but pretty much everyone who wants to introduce a new positive quality into their life: stress-free, deep, potent breathing.

Tackles a delicate topic of urinary health problems - prenatally, postnatally or later in life. Good exercises, sensitive issue dealt with tact and knowledge.

Harner is an institution in himself - he is a great writer and has a remarkable, witty style of writing. Author's wealth of knowledge shines through every page.


Rio Aroma Stone - White
Rio Aroma Stone - White
Offered by The Essential Oil Company
Price: £21.95

2.0 out of 5 stars Looks cute - but cannot smell anything!, 4 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Am not sure if I like it - I really cannot smell anything, although it did warm up. Nothing - no smell or vapour or waft of a smell... Maybe I am fussy but decidedly there is no effect of this device whatsoever. It has been on for an hour now - will wait for some more but I am afraid it is £20 down the drain :(.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely and presentable, with good recipes, too!, 4 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A beautiful edition - would make a nice gift. Great photos and quite rational, doable recipes - some of them quite suprising but still simple. Several recipes called for a dehydrator though (not a strange thing in a raw recipe book) so I won't be using these. A bit of a mixed bag - some recpies are doable with just a blender some need more extra equipment suitable for raw cuisine, so bear this in mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic on the Sleep Yoga, 4 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Yoga Nidra (Paperback)
Bihar books are classics on all things yoga - Satyanada style. If you want to have a good foundation on what yoga nidra is, do read this book.
