5.0 out of 5 stars Informative, easy to read book, 25 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having just bought a new, high tech digital camera, I found it was offering me setting choices I didnt understand. Additionally, I hope to write some travel articles and offer photos alongside them. This book met both needs. It is written in an easy to understand style, and there is a helpful glossary too.
Wonderful photographs illustrate techniques described throughout the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Recipes, 14 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As someone who has only recently been diagnosed with Coelic Disease, I have been feeling pretty deprived of many of the foods I previously enjoyed. The recipes in this book go a very long way towards making feel better about this. There is a good selection of recipes and I particularly liked the Cherry and Almond Scones.
Anyone who needs to eat gluten free would enjoy these dishes.

5.0 out of 5 stars A practical, easy to read guide for men, 3 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I downloaded this book because I was looking for straightforward advice on dealing with the menopause so that I could pass it on to my husband. I was not disappointed. The author writes clearly and is very knowledgable about the subject. I like the positive, can-do approach.

Each chapter is brief enough to take in at one sitting. There is a wealth of practical, easy to apply, advice. Much of this is made easier to apply with the worksheets that are either at the back of the book or downloadable from a website. What I didn't expect, and what was very useful, was advice on dealing with prostate issues which affect so many men.

A really worthwhile read.

After writing my first novel 'Winner Takes All' http://amzn.to/1nVe4UJ I was looking for ideas for a plot for a sequel. This book, as with Dave Haslett's other books, is packed with inspirational ideas. The author writes clearly and succinctly. This is the third of his books I have purchased and can recommend them all.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The heroine is wacky yet resourceful. I love the way she adapts to the new roles in her life (don't want to say more for risk of being a spoiler). A light and very enjoyable read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loads of great ideas, 6 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although I have had several self help books published and have one novel on kindle (Winner Takes All), I had never really attempted to write short stories. This was mostly because I somehow couldn't think of plots that would fit into the shorter format.
Dave Haslett's book is crammed with plot ideas, so much so that even if you don't use any of them, they trigger ideas. I have now entered two short story competitions, using ideas sparked by plots in the book.

Having just put my first novel, Winner Takes All, onto kindle, I was searching for ideas for a second novel. Dave Haslett's book is just full of ideas and made me want to start planning several books. Highly recommended for people who want fresh ideas.

5.0 out of 5 stars short, practical guide, 2 Nov 2013
I have appreciated the many useful tips throughout this book. As a result I plan to look again at the cover for my book Time Management for the Office [...] I will follow Anbu's advice and make it look like a series with my next book too, How To Be Assertive. I recommend Anbu's book to any author pondering the many decisions to be made about cover design.
