5.0 out of 5 stars it really takes you back to your own play histories, 6 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very nicely written, not many studies to show as a proof, but reading this book and thinking along, you realize that there are no need for studies in order to get/believe this. Author has done great work studying play for so long, reading this and following advise his giving can make a real difference in many lives. From my own experience I can say that he can't be more right there about the role of play in relationships.

Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Real deep insights, 28 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found my answer for the ultimate question from this book... the search for meaning is itself the meaning!!!
Some insights from the book itself:
*Freedom to choose one's own attitude in any given set of circumstances - your own way of dealing things
*Emotion, which is suffering, ceases to be suffering as soon as we form a clear and precise picture of it
...etc.

Can't get better than this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great knowledge about brain and how it works and is able to change, 28 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was just stunned about how much useful information there is about our brains and how less I have heard about it before. Some researches are dating back to mid 90's and most people don't know about it even NOW - in this century. People should really watch less TV and read more books like this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Green pan as it should be, or is it?, 28 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought these ones for induction hob, are working just great, no complaints - easy to clean, nice ceramic non-stick coating.

Update: Bigger pan's non-stick coating stopped working for some unknown reason, now the food sticks in the middle of the pan.

3.0 out of 5 stars didn't get much out of it, 15 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Mezzanine (Paperback)
it's style is unique for its own age, in order to understand and relate more of the character of the book, you should be American or at least have been visiting the country for some time. I would guess for the people born around 1940-1970 this book has more value as well as the humorous perspective of it. It's goes deep in details, so if you are office kinda person, read it for your own experience. I would like to read the updated version of it, how today's IT-generation office person's mind works/thinks during the lunch break (if there is one anymore).

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent coffee maker, 8 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ordered it despite of all the mixed reviews I read and still decided it's the best kind on the market. Had some trouble with getting it delivered, but finally it arrived. Now it has been 2 weeks for me and it still works flawlessly. Here are my positive and not so positive points:

POSITIVE:
- makes fresh coffee straight from the beans as promised
- keeps coffee hot around 1-2hours after brewing (more time when you preheat the carafe with hot water)
- makes me happy

NOT SO POSITIVE:
- cleaning after each brewing (specially the gold filter), using paper filters is much easier and they supposed to keep some chemicals in them as well, give it a try
- when taking carafe out for pouring, inevitably there will be 1 or 2 drops of coffee (I can live with it)
- doesn't grind coffee thin enough (not an expert opinion though)

For illiterate or people who don't like to read manuals, checking out Cuisinart website for How-To Video is recommended.

Update: Tried paper filters, works better for me, easier to clean and it also stops some harmful particles, like it even more now
Update 2: If you want to get the last coffee out from the carafe, take the lid of and pour the last half cup out with ease.

5.0 out of 5 stars makes you think and compare your own experience in life, 28 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
like most of the books, it depends when you read it, surely reading this book right after finishing high school doesn't end up with the same results as reading it in the late 20's or 30's of your life. It gives many examples, quotes from other brilliant masterpieces and comparisons from author's own experience as well. I found it well written and pleasant to read. Make sure you have a notebook beside you to take notes from hearing your own thoughts.

After seeing author's TED performance, I read this book and took up meditation. Quality of life and understanding the world's simple pleasures have changed gradually my life, being more satisfying that is. Take your time to go through the exercises.


The Science of Healthy Drinking

5.0 out of 5 stars I already knew it from experience, but needed this final confirmation, 29 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great work by the author, respect. Wine has been and will be the (forgotten) secret of a healthy life. But moderation is the key word, as for everything else in this world. Taking time for a long/slow lunch or dinner with your loved ones, what could be more fulfilling and enjoyable.
