The Reason I Jump: One Boy's Voice from the Silence of Autism
The Reason I Jump: One Boy's Voice from the Silence of Autism
by Naoki Higashida
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £11.95

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, 5 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found some of the insights this book provides into the autistic mind were helpful as the parent of such a child. However, I found "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night" even better in many ways. This book is more like a treatise on the subject, where the Dog in the Night is more like a consciousness stream.


The Coming of the Cosmic Christ
The Coming of the Cosmic Christ
by Matthew Fox
Edition: Paperback
Price: £11.27

2.0 out of 5 stars An overly academic book but with some good points., 5 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I thought the basic idea of the book was encouraging in that the personal nature of the Christ is being questioned. But I found that the writer still remained within the framework of traditional Christianity in many other ways and was excessively academic, relying on quotations from the Bible without questioning the accuracy of the records themselves.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful and uplifting book, 17 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love this book. It is so positive and offers so much hope for the future. Prince Charles understands so much more of what needs to be done in this country than the politicians or the economists. Maybe that is why some with vested interests do not want him to become king.
I am not one of them - unless he himself feels that he would be unable to continue to stand up for what he believes in if he took on that role.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bought for the outhouse, 9 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for the outhouse and then decided it was too big and changed it for a smaller one. However, I think that is a little unfair, as the reason I bought a smaller one was that my outhouse was a toilet and I was afraid of tipping it over or getting burnt on it when I used the toilet. However, the smaller one did not heat the area sufficiently, as the ceiling is very high. So I do not think I can give a fair assessment of this product.

I can't comment on this book as I bought it after a friend asked me to do so. It seems unfair to say nore than that they seemed very happy with it.

I don't know how much of this book is true. Some say it is all true, but I do sometimes wonder. But it is inspiring and well written. The bit I found hard to take was the idea of living naked in the woods in Siberia. Isn't it really cold there?

4.0 out of 5 stars A cookbook for noncooking cooks, 9 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This tells you all you need to know about getting the maximum food value from the food you prepare according to the discoveries of Weston Price. It gives instructions about making such things as sauerkraut and other fermented foods and I was told to buy it for a course I was on.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book, 9 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A New Science of Life (Paperback)
Rupert Sheldrake looks as the inner workings of nature and I enjoy his books. I can see why people who are alternative like them, because he is demonstrating the wonders of nature from a scientific point of view without losing the magic.
