2.0 out of 5 stars Not so good for beginners..., 13 Sep 2006
This review is from: Complete Book of Abs (Paperback)
This book has absolutely every ab exercise you could possibly imagine, but is pretty useless if you're a beginner. Most of the exercises require you to have legs-behind-head level of flexibility in your legs. Unless you can already twist up your body into a pretzel at a moment's notice, you wont manage 1, never mind 25 reps of most of these exercises aside the very very basic few that you probably already know about or can learn about for free on the net. The only useful piece of information in this book is that there are several areas of the abs that all need to be worked on seperately...Thanks Kurt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Through the trees..., 4 April 2004
This review is from: Through The Trees (Audio CD)
I bought this album having heard a cover of 'weightless again', not really knowing what to expect...
Well, I was surprised but not dissapointed- Handsome family plays music like nothing i've ever heard...unsettlingling lyrics make for *interesting* listening if a little depressing at times; and boy can they conjour up a mood! weightless again is worth 10 of any cover, and each track seems to tap into a different genre, be it jazz, blues, bluegrass, or the obvious country!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bringing the old tongues to life, 25 Feb 2002
When I first ordered this book..., aware of some of the previous criticisms made about the author, i realised I was in for a complete surprise. Russell's passion for the intricately complex variety of Celtic languages portrayed in this enlightening work is truly Impressive. By contextualising the informative, justifiably apt and often witty depiction of Celtic linguistics, Russell boasts an introduction to these old tongues that far surpasses the other available literiture on the subject. Its bibliography, too, is a useful reference tool in research. Anyone with a keen interest in its subject will surely not be dissapointed in this book.
