Oral-B Trizone 4000 Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush Powered by Braun
Oral-B Trizone 4000 Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush Powered by Braun
Price: £54.95

4.0 out of 5 stars A handy Sonic companion, 25 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'm a longterm Philips Sonic toothbrush user so found the rotating and swivelling head of the Oral-B Trizone bulky, noisy and quite uncomfortable in the mouth. However, with practice it's possible to be as gentle as with the lighter Sonic and get excellent cleaning results. If anything it's slightly easier to get to the back of your jaw effectively as the brush moves in several directions. The warning light which flashes when there is too much pressure on the head is useful to prevent damage. I'm finding alternating with the Sonic provides a good quality clean.

The noise is quite alarming, especially compared with the quiet bozz of the Sonic, but other members of the household haven't complained so perhaps it's all in my head.


Philips Shaver Series 3000 with CloseCut Blades and Flexing Heads HQ6986/16
Philips Shaver Series 3000 with CloseCut Blades and Flexing Heads HQ6986/16
Price: £39.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Best so far, 25 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Now I know why Philips are the electric shaver kings. I've been using a Wet/Dry version of this shaver for several weeks but have never found it comfortable (or very effective) for more than a few days at a time. Although the 3000 has the same CloseCut blades as the Wet/Dry version they seem much sharper and product a very close shave with no soreness, no nicks and no need for expensive creams afterwards.

A charge lasts several days, it's quiet and a good solid build. I'm expecting it to last well. Very highly recommended.


U.S. History For Dummies
U.S. History For Dummies
by Steve Wiegand
Edition: Paperback
Price: £15.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Dummies and US history?, 25 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Another exemplary "... for Dummies" volume. If you've never really understood how the Constitution remains so important and the shadow of the Founding Fathers looms over contemporary America, this is a great help. Plenty of diagrams and maps make this a comfortable read. Ideal background for "The West Wing". Not a difficult read and great at making the complex straighforward.


Pasta: The Essential New Collection from the Master of Italian Cookery
Pasta: The Essential New Collection from the Master of Italian Cookery
by Antonio Carluccio
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £15.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Stand by your pasta machine, 25 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Some wonderful recipes here. I've been looking for an easy homemade pasta recipe as my daughter bought me a machine for Christmas. Finding a recipe which includes vodka (which I have often added to fish recipes and salad dressings) inspired me. I'm now a dedicated pasta maker. It's much more satisfying and quicker to cook than the shop-bought stuff. Beautiful photographs which look like the meals you produce from the recipes. Recommended.

Very comfortable. I usually take weeks to get used to a new shoe but have worn these for 3 days now and walked about 10 miles in them. Can't feel any effect i can attribute to the Fitflop design. Love the boat show design and the flat sole. Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars A worthwhile reminder, 23 Aug 2014

Whilst there's nothing here that I have not found elsewhere this is a useful combination of explanation of some science and where that leaves faith. It's reassuring to know that a career scientist can maintain a living faith.


Mindfulness at Work For Dummies
Mindfulness at Work For Dummies
by Shamash Alidina
Edition: Paperback
Price: £13.59

4.0 out of 5 stars The lengthy introduction on what mindfulness might offer in the workplace is a good business case for taking at least some of it, 20 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have always been dismissive of the mindfulness craze as just another fashion which will pass in time. There's much to reflect on here. The lengthy introduction on what mindfulness might offer in the workplace is a good business case for taking at least some of it seriously. Overall I felt that if more awareness of mindfulness can make people relate to each other with more gentleness and humanity, that has to be worth trying. I'm thinking about how to introduce this at work and this book will provide plenty of useful material.


The Art of Conversation: Change Your Life with Confident Communication
The Art of Conversation: Change Your Life with Confident Communication
by Judy Apps
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £8.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Not fontastic, 20 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Plenty of good ideas here to help you get to grips with conversational problems. It's not set out as a development programme which limits its application - ie I'm probably not going to find the advice very useful. The book's in a very attractive pocket book format and beautifully presented apart from the horrible font. It's a kind of bulbous version of Arial which I found quite hard to read.

Great value and beautiful colours. The iridescent blue always raises comment and prevents confusion with others' phones.


Obstetrics, Gynaecology and Women's Health on the Move (MOTM)
Obstetrics, Gynaecology and Women's Health on the Move (MOTM)
by Amie Clifford
Edition: Paperback
Price: £23.74

4.0 out of 5 stars I'm not a medical professional and don't even have GCSE ..., 26 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'm not a medical professional and don't even have GCSE level science qualifications, but modern medical textbooks and reference works make so much biology and biochemistry clear and fascinating. This work provides a huge amount of detail with copious references to web-based materials (and its own supporting app for a tablet or smartphone).

All women's healthcare professionals should have a copy as the material could be shared with their patients as a full explanation of how decisions are being made about their treatment and the reason for and implications of their diagnosis. Could a deal with the NHS be beneficial all round?

Congratulations to the doctor who have pulled this together. I hope the thanks of the medical profession won't weigh too heavily on their shoulders and they will be able to keep this updated.
