2.0 out of 5 stars Not easy, 31 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a nightmare to read on a kindle.......it feels that I have to start from the beginning for each word. i.e. the navigation and structure of the book leads me to feel a flick through version (real) would be much better for a reference work.

Lesson learned.

A bit clunky (the resolution of functions such as zoom in and out and moving across) and not too easy to use but would be absolutely fine if you simply want to download books and take it on hols. The lighting isn't perfect but as far as it goes it's okay.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must buy!, 31 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Perhaps not as much a must if you aren't that keen on music (only in that there are many references to classic rare groove and jazz recordings) but still a wonderful read with the most poetic and evocative language I have read in many a year, along with a great story that results in a well crafted climax.

Michael Chabon describes simple things like a facial expression in a way that all the undecided emotion behind it rises to the top like bubbles on the floor of a full bath - rising up slowly until it breaks on the surface of your mind and you say, 'yeh, I get that'.

Top book - highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A joy!, 18 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you ever wanted to know anything about ancient Chinese philosophy and be able to use that knowledge practically - this is the book. I have enjoyed every moment reading it and it is brilliantly conceived so that it is very easy to use and refer to. There are certainly better books for translations of the books of the I Ching (such as Thomas Cleary's definitive translation) but as a workbook and process guide, it would be hard to find better.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must!, 18 Sep 2013

The strapline says it all, "Source of our freedom today". If you want to know how the law is meant to work in this country this book will tell you. Short, authoritative and accurate, you will be thankful you bought this book and you will also know so much more about the foundations upon which English law is built.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fasntastic!!, 24 Nov 2012

If you want to learn to play like Charlie Christian Wolf Marshall has the system. The CD is ideal, having a regular speed and half speed version of each lick or phrase. It was pretty easy and I was impressing my friends in the band after only a weekend!

This is my favourite going out shirt and I've got to say that Joe Browns do really deliver as a company. You won't be disappointed with anything you buy from them or their customer service.


Taoist Secrets of Love: Cultivating Male Sexual Energy

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!, 24 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Mantak Chia is quite an extraordinary man that has expanded people's understanding of health techniques and practices through some truly inspiring work. This book is another example of new (old) ways of looking at our almost limitless potential for new experiences. It is well written and easy to grasp, being well laid out to the point that you don't really have to 'trawl' the entire book if simply want to get to the exercises. Unfortunately, I went down with sciatica shortly after buying the book and am only ready now to 'test' the claims of ejaculationless orgasms but my partner and I are keen to get stuck in (as it were) and I do know that these concepts are long established in Taoist circles. It's a good read and well worth the investment. Whether you want to stand in front of the mirror doing the 'dance of the testes' is another thing altogether. I've only given 4 stars because I don't know whether the training exercises achieve their aim.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dripping with quality and content, 29 Sep 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Resistance (Audio CD)
This album demonstrates the art of songwriting and performance at its best. The songs that will be singles never lose their roots in love and rebellion, yet retain great shape, sound and content, while the classical influenced material is subtle, well-balanced and dreamily romantic.

It rocks when it wants to (would have liked a little more), pops when it needs to and leaves you in a great place with its harmonic beauty. I also love the way the drums are featured more than in Black Holes - it's a fine production

I have been in the music business over 30 years, teach songwriting and believe you will not be disappointed if you buy this album. It is varied, beautifully performed and sounds great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny!, 27 Aug 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It helps if you are a believer in the Law of Attraction, but even if you are not, this book may push you that way.
It makes so much sense and can help anyone understand why prosperity may seem permanently out of reach for them
If you buy this book, do the exercises, believe totally in the Law and then nothing at all changes for the better in your life, then you've been ripped off - you're also pretty unique, because I feel everyone will get something positive from this easy-to-read offering.
