5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant, thorough guide, 1 Mar 2014
The book is well presented with a guide to birds throughout the year, information on 85 sites and useful reference material. Each site includes really sensible information to help you choose, find and enjoy sites at different times of year. It is well presented and intelligently written with a few illustrations. Its a guide that focuses on information and contains no photos - just a few line drawings ... but I like it all the more for that. My only serious criticism would be that I love all nature, not just birds and I'd love a version that expands the remit, but this book is an invaluable guide for birdwatchers or wildlife photographers.

Norfolk Wildlife: A Calendar and Site Guide
Norfolk Wildlife: A Calendar and Site Guide
by Adrian M. Riley
Edition: Paperback
Price: 16.83

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth buying for the detailed information on 35 sites, 1 Mar 2014
The book contains huge amounts of really useful information for anyone who is interested in exploring Norfolk's many and varied nature sites and for picking which ones to visit at different times of the year. It is divided into 2 main sections of a wildlife calendar and recommended sites. Each site has information on habitat, access, facilities, length of walk/difficulties, precautions and wildlife. Its slightly biased towards North Norfolk with some obvious exclusions, particularly around Whittlingham/Norwich which have no listings at all. It is thoroughly illustrated with photos, but they of varied quality; with many being badly lit or out of focus. But that said, it is a great book; jam packed full of facts and recommendations and essential for anyone who wants a guide that looks at the full spectrum of wildlife, not just birds but also butterflies, mammals, damselflies/dragonflies, reptiles and flora.

1.0 out of 5 stars shoddy, 27 Oct 2013
= Durability:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So, I appreciate that this is a cheap item, but even so, I was disappointed in the quality. The item I received is not black, but faded. The ears are glued off centre, the bow is bigger on one side than the other and one of the foam ears had a big crease in it.

1.0 out of 5 stars nice cover, worthless content, 21 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although this information is presented in the form of a book with a nice cover etc, in reality it is just a long leaflet. I read it cover to cover at a leisurely pace in less than 45 minutes. The author doesn't have any medical training or evidence of relevant nutritional knowledge. The book also doesn't cover what candida is or what the symptoms are (she unhelpfully says 'this information is easily available on the internet and I assume you have already done some research'). It also hints at different phases of treatment (e.g. healing and maintenance) but doesn't go into what these are - I suspect that you're supposed to get this from the internet too.

It talks about dietary changes, but not in any detail and it doesn't back up the reasons for the food recommendations in any depth (e.g. it just says no cheese of any kind). I'm not sure where the previous reviewer got a bread recipe from as there are no recipes or detailed information about food in the book.

It is also American so it recommends lots of supplements that are not available in the UK without always explaining what they are so alternatives can be sourced and with insufficient information about the symptoms that they are linked to. THis would be useful to identify or prioritise what is needed.

In hindsight, I would advise you to not buy the book as you'll probably get more useful information off google.

2.0 out of 5 stars left me with as many questions as answers, 11 July 2013
This review is from: Candida Cure (Paperback)
The book provided a certain amount of useful information, but the plan was vague and relied heavily upon supplements (including the authors own branded supplements). THis all left me unsure as to how credible the advice was and unsure how effective the plan would be without the significant amount of supplementation. Personally, I prefer to meet my nutritional needs via diet as vitamins can be more harmful than good and this was not possible within this plan. I would have preferred independent advice from someone who is not profiting from peddling their own products.

5.0 out of 5 stars exceptionally good and readable book, 24 Jun 2013
I like this book a lot. It is a readable and engaging study into eating habits and the myths and truth in the field of nutrition. It reassures me that the authors weren't scared to back up their views with the scientific research and didn't patronise their readers by assuming that this could not be understood. In particular, I found the information on taking excessive vitamins and their potentially detrimental impact to be extremely useful and alarming. The book encouraged me to improve my health habits and redirected my path slightly. The main positive from my perspective is the sense that the authors are independent and willing to state the facts as they see them and act in the best interests of the public without taking the route that would be most commercially advantageous to them.

Good job!!
