5.0 out of 5 stars Everybody should read this, 11 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If there's one certainty in life, it's that we're all going to make that final journey. Modern Western culture and education prepare us very poorly for our own departure and for that of our loved ones. Felicity Warner is a pioneer in the holistic care of the dying and we have much to thank her for.

In her first book Felicity introduces us to the fundamentals, the basics of how Soul Midwifing works. This book is much more of a working handbook. There is valuable and fascinating discussion, but it's an eminently practical book. None of the tools or techniques described is indispensable to everybody: Felicity encourages us to play to our strengths. Few if any of her readers will possess her breadth of skill and knowledge or her refined intuitive gifts; but everyone will find things in this book that they can safely use when they want to help.

You can't really compare this book to others, because it's a first of its kind; but it is superbly written, well-structured and organised, and is a mine of precious information. Everyone will find themselves with a loved one who is dying at some point in life, whether privately or as a professional. Everyone, therefore, would benefit from reading this wonderful book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A shimmering performance, 11 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Before choosing this recording I read a lot of reviews - it's one of my favourite chamber works so it had to be good. I was not disappointed. In some recordings the momentum - the 'big arcs' of the piece' - can be felt to 'sit down' rather, especially if individual players wallow in their own parts rather than supporting the flow of the whole. Here instead of heaviness there is poise and flow: the macro and the micro are beautifully balanced, the teamwork is impeccable, and repeated listening just adds to the pleasure.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost as good, and much much cheaper, 11 Dec 2013

I no longer have my Canon - it suddenly died completely - but while it lasted I was happy to use these inks and the printer seemed to accept them without problem. They don't last as long as Canon cartridges but they are still much better value.

2.0 out of 5 stars A small design fault can become a major irritation, 11 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had a case almost identical to this before, stolen with the phone. I got this case for the replacement phone. On the HTC Desire HD you need to press the power button frequently throughout the day in order to access, well, just about any function. It's almost imposssible to do this through this case. I ended up sliding the case off the top of the phone every single time I used it, and eventually just abandoned the case altogether and carried the phone in my pocket. It offers protection, sure, but impedes use.


The Reason I Jump: One Boy's Voice from the Silence of Autism
The Reason I Jump: One Boy's Voice from the Silence of Autism
by Naoki Higashida
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £11.95

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful insight, 11 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For me, this book comes as a complete revelation. I was grateful to hear some of it on Radio 4's Book of the Week and had to read the rest. I'd suggest dipping in often, rather than working from beginning to end. I'm sure it's not a definite scientific work, but what it does offer is a real insight into the world of people with autism. Naoki Higashida shows great patience and forgiveness towards the mistakes and misunderstandings of the non-autistic people he interacts with. Fascinating, moving and heart-warming.

The fault in my vacuum cleaner lead was actually around the middle of it, so I had to replace the whole thing. This was easy to fit - the wire-ends have been dipped in solder so are easy to maneouver into place. The cable looks and feels like the original. Quick delivery too, thank you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good, not perfect, 11 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The protection offered by this case is great, as long as your iPod doesn't slide out of the top. I'm holding back on the fifth star because (a) the hole for the dock / plug at the bottom is too small and it's a faff to connect - I have to take the iPod out of the case, slide the cable through, connect it to the iPod and then slide the whole lot back into the case. Also, (b) there's nothing to stop the iPod sliding out of the case if it's held upside down, so you have to be careful that doesn't happen.

But all in all, I think it's ok for the price.

Not easy to find white-coated wire, but here it is and delivery was quick too. Thank you. Now I can reattach the front grilles to a couple of household electric fans...

1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY THESE - My HP printer will not print with these cartridges, 13 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The first few pages of printing with these cartridges, though not brilliant, was tolerable. My printer flashed up a message that I was using non-standard cartridges, but after my positive experience with remanufactured cartridges in my old Canon Pixma printer I thought I'd be ok.

No, alas, not ok. I now get one line in three, all blurry. I had to spend £50 yesterday to get a set of HP cartridges in a hurry, but I'm really sore that I blew £60 on these.

Maybe other remanufactured cartridges will work with certain HP printers, but these ones don't.
