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: 11.89

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)

Edition: Paperback

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.


Distant Love
Distant Love
by Ulrich Beck
Edition: Paperback
Price: 15.99

4.0 out of 5 stars There is to be a wedding and the happy couple will come to live in England, 26 July 2014
This review is from: Distant Love (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As I was facing the prospect of someone I know having to conduct a long-term relationship across the hemispheres, I thought I should prepare myself with an academic framework for handling my concerns. Perhaps it might even offer some advice which I might be able to share without intruding into someone else's business.

And lo, within a few days of the book arriving, the situation had resolved itself. There is to be a wedding and the happy couple will come to live in England. And I hadn't even finished the book.

There is much here to stimulate reflection and this will no doubt open up this field of study. How much of the division in the world is caused by the stress of conducting relationships at distance and how can this be minimised?

One paragraph should be in front of all monotheistic faith leaders - "The juxtaposition of the world's religions and their interaction produce a multi-monotheistic entanglement in which the one and only God of other religions, the universalist aspirations of the different faiths, are brought into direct contact with one another. The potential for conflict and perhaps even violence is self-evident." And should be assumed and mitigated against.


Subliminal: The New Unconscious and What it Teaches Us
Subliminal: The New Unconscious and What it Teaches Us

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Not another book by a professional research psychologist which sexes up research findings, throws in some amateur evolutionary psychology and encourages us to make lifestyle changes? In some respects, yes. The book dashes through the field with some entertaining examples and some analysis of research.

Most readers will probably not be alarmed at the thought that we are only consciously in control of a limited amount of our behaviour. There are many lessons to be drawn here and, one could argue, mindfulness does a pretty good job of making something usable out of these findings.

Easy reading and may encourage a deeper search elsewhere.

Poland in the Modern World: Beyond Martyrdom (A New History of Modern Europe (NWME))
by Brian Porter-Szücs
Edition: Paperback
Price: 18.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A great addition to my Poland history, 26 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A great addition to my Poland history. For coverage of the whole saga, which makes depressing reading and provides many lessons for how the wider state of Europe should be managed, I go to Norman Davies History of Poland. This book fills the gap with its up to the minute assessment of the progress which Poland has made towards competing in modern Europe and making Poles proud to be Poles in Poland.
Short chapters, plenty of maps and many useful references to other works make this indispensable for those interested in modern Poland and how it got there.

This review is from: Informant 3 (App)
I've spent plenty of time looking for the perfect diary app. This is almost it. Unfortunately the Amazon environment won't allow sync with Google tasks. That might be a killer for some k I'm content to keep tasks only on my android phone (which will run Amazon or Google apps without any problems). Wake up Amazon.
