This review is from: Scrabble Deluxe (Toy)
An excellent buy.We have a deluxe Scrabble that is over 40years old and we bought this for our granddaughter. It is suberb and will last her all her life we imagine.-Abeautiful board, smooth turntable, very clear tiles.the only slight criticism is that the tile racks do not hold the tiles as securely and at the same angle as our old set does.

Don't buy this if you are already computer literate. Frankly it's a waste of paper and money and doesn't answer anything I want to know.

4.0 out of 5 stars a coffee table book, 7 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is indeed a very beautiful book- in a cardboard case and so well presented. However, I couldn't class it as a reference book as it
is 'bitty' with facts scattered here and there around the pages.Yet it is still worth owning for its presentation and quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars a real eye opener of a book, 7 Mar. 2014

an amazing book-to think I have been so ignorant of the debt we owe to these botanists,especially Sir Joseph Hunt.it is so readable, I was sorry when I reached the end, and I have since bought it for friends to give them the pleasure of it.

a bit of a disappointment compared to Kabat Zinn's other books.it's a bit of a pretty book and doesn't contain much substance.

5.0 out of 5 stars an excellent introduction to the subject., 23 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was my first book on mindfulness and I could not have chosen better. Professor Williams is an English neuro scientist and pitches this at just the right level for a beginner. The book is excellent and a real eye-opener if you haven't touched this subject before. it describes how thoughts come into the head and how they are coloured by past experiences and are NOT necessarily true . I am quite old and didn't know this. The meditations on the accompanying CD are lovely. Worth every penny.

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointing, 23 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was truly disappointed with this. It is a recording of a symposium Kabat-Zinn had given some years ago.The first part is an address to the audience, followed by a breathing meditation. This is followed by some hatha yoga. During this he appears to walk about the room, asking for the lights to be dimmed and telling the audience how to find enough space;then when he starts the yoga there is a woman with an irritating cough, as well as the level of sound coming and going and more requests for light dimming.The final section is questions from the audience.
This does not do what it says on the cover. Don't waste your money on it. I have since found many meditations led by Kabat-Zinn on U-tube and they are free to access. I wonder whether Amazon know what is contained in this CD. It is not simply meditations as this says.

Funny Stories for Six Year Olds
Funny Stories for Six Year Olds

Price: £5.99

3.0 out of 5 stars a disappointment, 31 Jan. 2013

only Ok because the paper quality is very poor and the words are crammed on the page. Despite the quality of the stories, the tactile side of reading a book is ruined from the point of view of a six-year old.
