3.0 out of 5 stars aa triangle, 28 Aug. 2010
The item is a bit lightweight and flimsy compared to more expensive versions but hopefully, one will not need to use it very often.

5.0 out of 5 stars learning Russian, 7 April 2010
My teacher recommended this so assume it is the best on the market. Looks like learning Russia will be quite a test of will-power

3.0 out of 5 stars useful guide to how to grow old with with some wisdom, 19 Jan. 2008
Thought ths was an unusual and helpful book on my first reading. On re-reading it a few years later later, I still thought it contained insights and wisdom but I also noticed a lot of over -simplified thinking and not so logical reasoning. The chapter on cruelty to children ,whilst interesting, is linked to the young's hatred of the old yet without convincing evidence. She relies on endless anecdotes and newspaper articles rather than on scholarly works and as a result, ten years on, the book has really dated. Rowe also has a tendency to disparage various schools of psychology and psychoanalysis in a somewhat simplistic way though a lot of her ideas are clearly derived from them. However, despite these flaws this book does offer some insights as to how to age well rather than with anger and bitterness, to grow old wisely in other words.
