Wrangler Men's Arizona Stretch Straight Jeans, Brown (Dark Teak), W36/L36
Wrangler Men's Arizona Stretch Straight Jeans, Brown (Dark Teak), W36/L36

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, 13 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are good quality jeans that do what they say. Be warned, if you're a tall chap like me the tight fit makes your legs look very thin! And the nature of the fabric attracts pet hair like mad. Do NOT buy these if you have a white cat who likes to sit on your lap! Otherwise a good product.


Star Wars: The Jedi Path: A Manual for Students of the Force
Star Wars: The Jedi Path: A Manual for Students of the Force
by Daniel Wallace
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £12.08

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun!, 13 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is fun for would-be Jedi of all ages. A little more on the Sith and the Grey Jedi would have been nice, but then again this is meant to be a handbook for followers of the more "pure" Jedi Orders (those goody-two-shoes!). A perfect gift for the Star Wars buff.


Small Boat, Big Sea: One Year's Journey as a Parish Priest
Small Boat, Big Sea: One Year's Journey as a Parish Priest
by Peter Owen Jones
Edition: Hardcover

2.0 out of 5 stars A must-read for all who like moaning, 13 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Peter Owen Jones is clearly dedicated to his way of being, something which I respect him for, but it's really quite a negative book. He moans and vents his spleen from cover to cover, pointing out faults with the church but offering little in terms of "a better way" - and anyone can do that. Turn to any page, pick any paragraph, and you'll soon come across Jones's cynical lamentations. I confess that, although he makes many good points and there is some poetry humour in the writing, the wet-blanket feel of this book actually put me off finishing it.


Infinitely Beloved: A Therapist Explores Divine Intimacy
Infinitely Beloved: A Therapist Explores Divine Intimacy
by Brian Thorne
Edition: Paperback
Price: £11.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Mix of Spirituality and Therapy, 13 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brian Thorne's passion shines through in this work, and it's a must-read for anyone wishing to explore the spiritual side of life whilst not sacrificing the sensibilities of therapeutic understanding. This book's major contribution for me, personally, was to read further about Julian of Norwich.

2.0 out of 5 stars Out-dated product that records fairly well, 20 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sound quality okay but no better than cheaper recorders, which are often also smaller. And this Sony dictaphone doesn't seem to have the ability to download data to your computer via USB cable, your recordings have to stay on the device, which is just silly in 2016. I don't reccomend this product.


CREE XML-T6 Led 1000 Lumens mini Flashlight Torch
CREE XML-T6 Led 1000 Lumens mini Flashlight Torch
Offered by UVIA-Tech
Price: £6.87

1.0 out of 5 stars Utter Rubbish, 29 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not only does this not take AA's as specified in the advert, nor does it actually match the dimensions stated, but there's even a third problem: the screw-in battery compartment cover doesn't stay in. The screw thread is awful, meaning the end pops off if you so much as look at it. Save your money and buy a real torch. This one's junk.

Heavily opinionated and self-indulgent, this book has little to do with Quantum Science or Psychology. But it has its moments.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alan Watts strikes again, 8 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Become What You are (Paperback)
Good old Alan Watts. True, he may say the same thing over and over in his books, but he's always a pleasure to read. He breathes life and joy into the otherwise-overwhelming metanoia of realising a way of being that is undeniably divergent from maintstream western thought. Thought-provoking, profound and at times quite humourous, this book was a sound purchase. Plus it has a shiny bit on the cover, to attract magpies or to use as a signalling mirror.


Jellyfish Bones: The Humor of Zen
Jellyfish Bones: The Humor of Zen
by Don Gilbert
Edition: Paperback
Price: £10.00

5.0 out of 5 stars A treat for followers of Zen, 8 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was good fun, and summed up much of Zen teaching (as I understand it!). I wonder if someone totally new to the way of Zen might be baffled by this book's teachings. Perhaps this book is a light-hearted way of helping people further along the Zen path to understand what the books they've been reading have been trying to say. Ultimately, it is through meditation, reflection and actively LIVING the Zen way that makes it clear, but there are certain books which help. Also try "Opening the Hand of Thought" (i forget the author's name) and the classic "The Way of Zen" by Alan Watts.

Price: £12.50

2.0 out of 5 stars Didn't hit the mark for me, 8 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's a matter of personal taste, but I don't like a game that tells you when and where to go, what to do, now you're here, now you're there, now kill this guy, now kill these people, ooh now it's three years later . . . with almost zero autonomy on the part of the player. No freedom to explore the whole map, no real character customisation. Nah. Like I say, this is just my opinion and I'm not 'right' or 'wrong'. But Red Dead Redemption was FAR more satisfying.
