Dirty old rascal
Dirty old rascal
by Trevor A. Harley
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.17

5.0 out of 5 stars The One-Eyed-Chef and the Human Mind, 31 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dirty old rascal (Paperback)
A very clever satire of the society `the Castle', from the point of a one-eyed chef of the absurd King who falls in love with a murderous Princess. Or perhaps all these are only in the mind?
Vonnegut with Orwell and Rejto.... Unmistakably Trevor Harley, the psychologist novelist, who leads his readers to the deepest roots of the normal and abnormal human mind. He does so with his unusual wisdom and knowledge of psychology, elegantly packaged in his deep sense of humour.


Whales,Dolphins and Seals: A Field Guide to the Marine Mammals of the World
Whales,Dolphins and Seals: A Field Guide to the Marine Mammals of the World
by Hadoram Shirihai
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect field-guide, 12 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is one of the most beautifully and clearly illustrated nature guides I have. I have started with another highly regarded excellent field-guide, but when I found that to be a bit too small and not as informative as I would have liked, I ordered this one as well.
Although an exhaustive field-guide, the content, structure and layout are useful for beginners, experts alike. The descriptions are not only informative but are also interesting, with behavioural characteristics, age/sex/geographical variations and life-span data. A very generously illustrated guide, the photos and illustrations are stunning. This guide is a pleasure to open and to read.


How Infants Know Minds
How Infants Know Minds

5.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating book on early development, 20 July 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: How Infants Know Minds (Hardcover)
Vasudevi Reddy's `How infants know minds' is a fascinating review and revision of our views on early development. She proposes that the self is relational by its nature, enabling young infants to `know', experience others' minds directly.
She proposes that the concept of the self and others' selves emerge from relational experience with the others, not the opposite route as proposed before. Reddy's proposal is based on a large body of her original research on self-conscious emotions in the young infants /such as syhness, coyness, embarrassment, showing off, clowning/. Her model has far reaching implications not only on the revision of mainstream theories on early development, but directly on infant and parental mental health, and intuitive parenting.
The style combines up-to-date review, dialogical arguments, and excellent case illustrations. In summary, it is an engaging reading to the interested public and professionals.
