The 9 Steps to Financial Freedom
The 9 Steps to Financial Freedom
by Suze Orman
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Some Interesting Thoughts On What Money Means to YOU., 27 Nov. 2006
The first steps in the book are definitely worth reading. This centres on looking at ones early experiences of money and attendant fears surrounding it. Whatever illogical and archaic beliefs you currently hold stem from messages received during childhood. These are probably long overdue a complete overhaul. As other reviewers note much of the more detailed information is only relevant to the U.S. However the book is still worth reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth More Than A Barrowload of Other Self-Help Books, 25 Nov. 2006
The CBT approach seems to be based on what works rather than what fits some preconceived model. The emphasis is on helping yourself and effecting change in faulty thinking patterns. As attitudes become less rigid it makes possible the altering of behaviour in the real world. The book is divided up into various sections, of which some will be more relevant to each readers specific needs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Head Above The Parapet., 15 Nov. 2006
This review is from: The God Delusion (Hardcover)
Peoples all over the globe and through the ages have been jolly clever chaps surviving in places where you and I would last a couple of days. If these truths about their world were falsehoods then they would have died out too, centuries ago. The question of course is how these same wise folks can believe such wierd and wacky things and go to war with someone down the road or over the water who believe some other equally looney, but mutually incompatible, thing. Prof. Dawkins sheds an awful lot of light on why the world has spent so long arguing over the names of Santa's reindeer. Compulsory reading.

Five Chimneys: A Woman Survivor's True Story of Auschwitz

5.0 out of 5 stars "The only way out is up the chimney", 15 Nov. 2006
Another one of those books that 'should' be read, why? because someone wanted to survive simply to tell their tale. A story that the world wasn't meant to know. Apart from that it makes for compulsive reading and will make your present woes seem fairly insignificant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Long Haul Flight Reading, 15 Nov. 2006
This review is from: An Evil Cradling (Paperback)
Beautifully written, brutally honest, and excellent for taking your mind off feeling cramped on an aeroplane. It probably has greater relevance today than when it was published. A testament to survival.


Instead of Therapy: Help Yourself Change and Change the Help You're Getting
Instead of Therapy: Help Yourself Change and Change the Help You're Getting
by Tom Rusk MD
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars A sensible alternative to wasting money on analysis., 28 Sept. 2006
Dr Rusks distillation of 4 basic values to guide actions in life makes a lot of sense. It would be hard for anyone to disagree with; Respect, understanding, caring and fairness. If one applies these to oneself as well as others, quite quickly a sense of inner peace can be found, cliched as it may sound. And no need to invoke the power of a Supreme Being!

4.0 out of 5 stars 2541, 19 Feb. 2006
This review is from: Intolerance (Audio CD)
It was a surprise to me that you could actually buy a cd nowadays with the track 2541, which you'll find yourself singing along after a few listens.
I first heard it on the John Peel program a while back. Of course there was the bonus of the rest of the album which wasn't half bad either.

Over The Edge: Over the Edge (HB): A Regular Guy's Odyssey in Extreme Sports
by Michael Bane
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting exploration of what is possible, 5 Feb. 2006
Although the author is not what you would describe as a great writer the book is still worth reading nonetheless. For someone who couldn't swim at the start. Its inspiring how much progress the guy made, to take part in the alcatraz triathlon.

1.0 out of 5 stars Misleading rubbish, 5 Feb. 2006
I read this years ago but now realise its got very little to do with reality.
Supernatural basically means untestable idle speculation fun but so what?
Don't waste your time. Read Unweaving the Rainbow by Richard Dawkins instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars TOOLKIT FOR AN OPEN MIND, 25 Jan. 2005
My view is that this book should be compulsory reading for the entire world. Why? Because essentially it provides the reader with a toolkit for separating what might be true from the absolute rubbish. Essential reading for this age of what Richard Dawkins terms "the new ignorance" . BUY BUY BUY. and give as gifts.
