This was an incredibly moving book with so much honesty and ultimate hope. I counsel many clients with depression and also have family members who have suffered - Sally 's memoir gave me a much better idea of what they are going through and what I might do to keep myself well.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book helped still my racing mind, 28 Sept. 2014

This review is from: An Unquiet Mind (Kindle Edition)
I loved this book and would like to recommend it to anyone who is feeling helpless and hopeless about the mental health of someone they love. My son is in the throes of a manic episode and has been in and out of hospital. Reading Kay's account gave me some idea of what he is going through, some hope that he might survive and some solace that I have and continue to do what I can. Read it to increase your compassion.

Memory Match

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value, 6 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Memory Match (Toy)
I love this memory game - it is timeless, since it is not connected to any current children's characters. It has the extra twist of not just matching exact pairs but items that go together e.g. toothpaste and tooth brush, bucket and spade etc. Good value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works well, 4 Dec. 2012

This player is compact and very quick. It is much less temperamental than my more expensive Pioneer player and I find that it reads discs that the Pioneer rejects. Very good value.

My son has very short hair but likes to style it. He says this is the best hair product out there and I must agree that he looks good! A little goes a long way, so good value and it smells lovely.
