A very nice heater in all respects. It reminds me of the high quality "Made in England" items that were world famous for so long. Highly recommended!

This is a no nonsense straight to the point (pun intended) guide to stimulating some of the important meridians and pressure points in in your body. I bought it because I was recovering from a particularly nasty cold and thought that it may help to speed up the recovery process. Whether it did or not is difficult to say but it certainly seemed to have a good physical and psychological effect. It is a very life affirming routine, easily learned and after doing it twice a day for a few days it seemed to connect me back to reality and it also brightened my outlook considerably. Parts of the book are not very well written (the big toe is described as the thumb when the pressure point on the underside of the foot is pointed out) but if you use a little common sense and run through it (gently for the trial runs) you'll soon get the idea. Definitely worth a punt - give it a go!

5.0 out of 5 stars Genuinely useful life skills., 3 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So many self help books are "all gong and no dinner" but I found this book to be a refreshing exception. The basic premise of the book is that charisma is very often a learned skill rather than an inherent personality trait. But.... and here is where the real nitty-gritty of the book lies.... it is very difficult to have charisma if you are not comfortable within yourself. The author does a very competent job of explaining how the many causes of low self esteem and lack of self control in difficult circumstances can be overcome as well as going on to explain the essential skills needed to connect with other people in a deep, warm and meaningful way. To sum up, I have learned that if a book contains just one good idea that you can realistically use in your day to day life , it is a good buy and this book contains many.

Bought for my son who is property hunting. These days many people use Google map type applications to find information about cities like London but it is sometimes useful to see a large scale map showing the whole of the area that you are interested in. This fits the bill and my son is very pleased with it.

This very cheap mass produced plastic tat was bought as a prop for a fancy dress evening and is not really suitable for anything else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stylish light weight gilet for warm weather, 13 April 2011
I bought a PenDuick Targy Gilet to take on safari in South Africa. I found it to be stylish in looks, well made and hard wearing. It has seven pockets, one that can be zipped shut and the rest secured by Velcro strips. It can comfortably hold quite few small items such as a mobile phone, wallet or small digital camera. I wore it every day for nearly two weeks and it maintained it's clean and fresh look even after use in temperatures around the 25C mark. The special fabric and mesh lining keep the wearer cool. It is very light weight and can be packed into a small rucksack with ease. Overall I was very pleased with this item and recommend it as a wearable storage device for use on warmer days.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great motivator., 21 July 2009
This slim volume contains a wealth of interesting information. I have tried many health and fitness regimens during my life and have found that the one that consistently gives me the most "bang for my buck" and more importantly the greatest benefit for time spent, is the gym based strength training described in this concise and well written book. I have a small collection of books about weight training and occasionally buy health and fitness magazines. This easy to read volume compares with the best of them and is up to date with the latest, scientifically based information on the subject. Although aimed at the older athlete, a weight trainer of any age, experienced or beginner, will definitely learn something from it. Rating - a very strong buy!
