Anarchism: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions)
Anarchism: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions)
by Colin Ward
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.59

5.0 out of 5 stars recommended for anyone, even non-revolutionaries!, 11 April 2014
It never fails to amaze and disappoint that Anarchism as a serious theory and concept is not considered more widely. Colin Ward provides a good general overview that should be considered by anyone with the slightest interest in thinking about fairer, more equitable and just ways of living.


The Dispossessed
The Dispossessed
by Ursula Le Guin
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.82

5.0 out of 5 stars the author's finest!, 11 April 2014
This review is from: The Dispossessed (Paperback)
Just read this again. In my opinion Ursula le Guins' finest book. A great sci fi novel. As well as a good critique of political/societal structures and an exposition of Anarchism.


All in the Mind
All in the Mind
by Alastair Campbell
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars forget who wrote it this is good, 11 April 2014
This review is from: All in the Mind (Paperback)
Right, forget everything you know of the author as a spin doctor and political figure. This book provides a good insight into mental illhealth whilst also being a damn good read.


Depressive Illness: The Curse of the Strong (3rd Edition) (Overcoming Common Problems)
Depressive Illness: The Curse of the Strong (3rd Edition) (Overcoming Common Problems)
by Dr. Tim Cantopher
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.29

5.0 out of 5 stars comforting, enlightening and uplifting, 11 April 2014
Brilliant. Should be on every school syllabus. Having lived with depressive illness for many years, I found this book to be comforting, enlightening and uplifting.


Four Ways to Forgiveness
Four Ways to Forgiveness
Price: £3.99

3.0 out of 5 stars grown up sci fi, 11 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As usual the author skillfully introduces some big ideas in this science fiction book. Feminism and Anarchism take centre stage but am I alone in sometimes finding Ursula le Guins' novels a little over elaborate?

3.0 out of 5 stars fun romp, 11 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Usual fun romp. Don't expect a literary classic. But if you know what you want from the book, great, you'll enjoy this.


The Shock of the Fall
The Shock of the Fall
Price: £2.99

4.0 out of 5 stars recommended, 11 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent read. Mental illness becomes real and understandable. The author has contributed to modern literature educating others regarding mental health problems in a very accessible way.


The News: A User's Manual
The News: A User's Manual
Price: £6.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Good idea but execution inconsistent., 11 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What starts off as an attempt to point out the ridiculous and sometimes disturbing reliance on and interest in the News, descends into an unbalanced and rather paternalistic essay. However, as usual, the author succeeds in provoking thought.
