2.0 out of 5 stars Too much to ask for?, 30 April 2009
All I want is a portable stereo system styled as a 'gettoblaster' from the 80's with decent sound quality. Surely, this isn't too much to ask?

This system has a nice design, especially the way that you can slot the ipod safely away in front, much the same way you used to add cassetts all those years ago.

I would suggest that this is an ideal present for a child, in that this system is a toy and not a serious portable stereo system.

The build quality is not very high, and the action on the cd flap is very poor. The system has no graphic equalizer or remote control, which is a shame.

If you try and use the controls of the system to skip tracks on the ipod then the speakers loose the signal from the ipod and have to retune, which really interferes with your listening pleasure.

Worst of all thought this system has no real bass or volume to it. If you use the bass button the result is just a slight drop in tone with some muffeling, or at maximum volume the speakers just distort.

It would be fine for listening to in the bedroom whislst getting ready to go out. But would not cut though the chatter of a BarBQ.

I have sent this back to Amazon and continue to await a product that meets my requirements.

5.0 out of 5 stars It works., 7 Jan 2008
As with anything in life, you get back what you put in. If you read this book ,are able to carry out the visualisation exercises and the listen to the CD on a regular basis, it works.

I've only been listening to the cd about twice a day for just over a week but already it has changed the tone of my inner voice and what it says to me.



In the end I read through the book twice and listend to the CD
once or twice a day for two and a half months. It has made a huge difference to my life.
The angry inner voices and doubts changed their tone of voice, then became
quieter, then eventually vanished. They have now been replaced with a calm constructive voice.

I wouldn't have believed a book and a CD could have have such an impact on my life.
