2.0 out of 5 stars no good for uk or vegetarians, 10 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have returned this book - the information about candida is roughly the same as other book (they all conflict in some areas which is highly frustrating) but the recipes let it down. first thing to note is that it is an American book, so American measures and some foods that I have no idea what they are or that are not available here in UK. The main reason I returned the book - there is SO MUCH MEAT in the recipes! not that healthly for the gut and no good for the candida sufferer that is veggie. So if you live in uk and /or are veggie its not really worth it. shame

2.0 out of 5 stars Bored bored bored - and bulky!, 23 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this dvd purely on the amount of good reviews on Amazon. I had never heard of this woman nor watched the program she comes from so this review is based totally on the contents of the dvd.
I believe that when people do not exersise, or give up on it quickly, it is usually because they are bored. This dvd does nothing to combat that. It was soooo boring! I am sure the results are fantastic, but i would rather have fun and enjoy looking after myself rather than view it as a chore. This dvd is just tedious rounds of jumping jacks, squats and press ups whilst being barked at by this somewhat arrogant woman.
She doesnt even do most of the exersise with you but wondering around telling you how you cannot have a break if you want any results.
The workouts are only 20 minutes long but after five minutes i was wishing it would end, not because i couldn't keep up, but because i was bored! I usually do alot of walking and Zumba (which has a 20 minute workout that is so much fun and so varied that you don't notice the time go by or realise how much you are out of breath and sweating). I only bought this because i thought it might be a fun addition to my usual exersise.

Also, i think the cover photo on the dvd is somewhat misleading as she looks very thin and lean. In reality she, and the other participants on the dvd, are what i would call bulky. Obviously they are very fit, but there is a lot of muscle bulk - something most woman want to avoid!

I will be sticking to Walking and Zumba from now on and not waste any more time being bored!

4.0 out of 5 stars very good for the sewing novice, 24 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got this book on a thursday and by the friday i had adjusted a skirt that was too big and 'customised' an old top to something better. I am a complete sewing novice but want to learn the basics at least. This book has set me on the right path. If you want to learn how to alter or repair then this book is for you.

1.0 out of 5 stars a minus amount of stars if at all possible, 11 Dec. 2007
Oh, so now amazon sells tools to torture dogs with. This gadget is revolting. Time and patience teach a dog not pain. Study Jan Fennells method and apply it whole heartedly and your dog will be happy and relaxed because it has CHOSEN to be rather than doing what you say because otherwise you will hurt it.

4.0 out of 5 stars enrique needs to get happy., 28 Jun. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Insomniac (Audio CD)
Don't get me wrong this is a corker of an album. Well worth buying. But as one of my fellow reviewers pointed out, it's just a little too sad. Enrique's songs are often tinged with saddness and lonliness, but this album seems to focus on those themes constantly. He always has a hauntingly lonely look in his eyes...prehaps it's just consuming him. Either way this is not an album to listen to if you want to be cheered up, or if you're on the verge of suicide. Like i say it is good music, i just wish he would show that lovely smile a bit more!

5.0 out of 5 stars harrowing. gripping. astonishing, 4 Jun. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Everyone should read this book. The most amazing story of a young girls struggle to survive fuelled by her desire to find her beloved mother, unaware that she had suffered death at the hands of the nazis. This is a story of a child that became witness to murder, rape and savage brutality, who suffered hunger, thirst, blistering heat and savage cold, and yet lived to tell the tale. And she did it with the help of the animals, mainly her pack of wolves who literally treated her as one of their own for a long time. A tale of survival and spirit of all creatures and shows how animals behave in ways that are often superior to mankind. Read it, you'll never forget it.

5.0 out of 5 stars simply fantastic, 23 Oct. 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: How to Get Ideas (Paperback)
Everyone should read this book. No matter who they are or what they do. This book helps you get your creative juices flowing but also is like a self help book with out the depressing side. It teaches you, among many things, to let go, have fun and to observe. Really looking at things is a lost art in our fast paced world. This book shows you how to make sure you don't miss things, and then to use what you have seen. Buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars The hottest thing to come out of scotland!!!!!!, 30 Mar. 2003
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dive In (Audio CD)
I never watched pop idol, pop stars or any thing like that so when these made up 'stars' appear I am able to judge their music purly for what it is. Darius is simply fantastic. A great voice, wonderful looks and the best thing about this album is that all the songs are great and he wrote them HIMSELF! A very unusual talent these days!
Dive in contains a good mix of songs which stir a range of emotions. His deep voice simply pours them out with ease and feeling. A wonderful album. Well done Darius, keep it up!
If in doubt then just buy this album, go on, dive in!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping from start to finsh, 14 Oct. 2001
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read this book on the recommendation of my mum, and i thought it was great. It keeps you guessing and wondering through the story, and you feel desparate to jump in and talk to the characters to explain what you know but they don't! I also found myself moved to tears at the end, something i certainly had not expected from this type of book! If you are atall into sci-fi, aliens, space or stange happenings, read this book, you will love it!
