5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful, 8 Oct 2010
I really like this book. I am studying massage and it gives me all the information I need. I agree if you were a medical student then it would not give you the detail you need but it doesn't claim to be aimed at medical students. For the price it's fantastic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good introduction, 30 July 2010
This is a good introduction and good for an older child or teenager.

Although the book is very thick there isn't a lot of content as there are a lot of pictures which, though nice to look at often aren't neccessary to explain the text - they are just for embellishment.

I doubt an experienced rider would get much from this, but beginners or children would probably love it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very powerful, 30 July 2010
I liked this product. There are 2 settings, high or low, which is good if you want to use it on tender areas.

It is well designed - the 2 nodules are just far enough apart for you to be able to roll it down your spine and have a nice massage either side of the spine.

Although not recommended by the manufacturer I found it great to use it to massage my face by using just one nodule. It really eased sinusitis discomfort.

The only downsides are that for the heat function you have to have it switched on for about 5 mins to heat up, it is fairly heavy and a little bit noisy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 30 July 2010
I am a new Christian and struggled with reading the bible as I needed an explanation of the text. This is excellent as it's set up with the explanatory notes on the same page as the bible text so you don't have to look things up in a seperate book. I think the explanations are good for people like me who don't know a lot but could also be helpful for people who have been studying the bible for years.

It also has good features such as an introduction to each book where it explains the time it was written and the author and an introduction to what the book is about. It also has a summary of the main events in the book with a timeline. This is handy for getting the main points of the book.

There is also a reading plan designed to get you through the bible in a year if you want to do that.

There also colour maps and diagrams where relevant. It's good to see reproductions of temples and the city of Jerusalem for example.

You also get free access to the online version which is great as it links you automatically to related parts of the bible and you can just click to find the next link rather than shuffle through the pages.

The only negative I found was that the paper is very thin - I think this is a tradeoff as there are so many pages as you have a full bible and explanatory text so if the pages were normal thickness it would probably be extremely heavy and far too thick!

5.0 out of 5 stars A big improvement, 1 Mar 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
They took the original and improved it. Now there is a warm up and cool down which was missing on the first. They also allow you to choose the days you work out on for the 6 week challenge and again you could not do that on the original. It also seems a bit more clever than the original in as much as if you are doing an exercise wrong it seems to know why and tell you you need to hold still or point the remote in another direction. On the original it just didn't pick up your movements and you needed to guess what you did wrong.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad but could be better, 27 Aug 2009
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
The game is fun with boxing workouts - you can select the workouts you want to do after doing the tutorials. One gripe is that in the toning section there are no suggestions for adapting exercises to make them harder/easier. For example on one exercise you have to do full straight leg press ups for 3 minutes. There is no suggestion to do it with bent legs if that is too hard. The abdominal exercise is lying on the floor with your legs straight and then lifting and lowering your legs which again for most people I think is too hard and there is no opportunity to modify the exercise.
There is also no cooldown included in the workouts.

1.0 out of 5 stars Won't use amazon again, 13 Nov 2008
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
As with everyone else who has posted a review. I am an amazon prime member (won't be renewing that) and I haven't got my game today despite ordering it on 5th October.
Oh and for those of you who are saying they will return it because it took so long to arrive - looks like you have to pay to send it back. Check out indigostarfish returns policy.

"Where you are withdrawing from your purchase within 30 days of delivery, and there has been no error on the part of Indigostarfish.com, only the cost of the item will be refunded. The cost of delivery or other services provided to you in connection with your purchase will not be refunded."

Monumental customer service disaster on the part of amazon here I think.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very cruel, 25 April 2008
Please don't sell these anymore Amazon. Don't buy these traps - the mice can take days to die - they just get stuck on the trap and die of lack of food and water.

4.0 out of 5 stars A comprehensive introduction into Chinese medicine, 23 Oct 2000
This book is a good introduction for acupuncturists. It outlines the functions of the organs from a Chinese viewpoint, and deals with some common disharmonies. It is lacking in it's descriptions of the channels and the actions of the acupuncture points of the body. However it is written in a clear style, and I would recommend it to anybody startig a course in acupuncture.
