5.0 out of 5 stars good book, interesting, 6 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
a good interesting book, well written. and quite informative. I've been studying criminal profiling now, for some time. I'm working, with an ex- detective friend. he has been involved with the moors murders, in his career. as was his father before him. but the moors, is not that simple? it is/was not, a case of simple child abduction, and murder? but that is another story, for my memoirs.

5.0 out of 5 stars tagua palm nut, 6 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this product for a family member. it arrived really quick. this company is excellent for fast shipping, and customer after care. Each slab of tagua, is a reasonable size...approx...1inch by 2inch. the price is very reasonable. tagua nut can also be used for scrimshawing as it is an ivory substitute. this company is easy to deal with.. give them a try, if your buying for a family member, or scrimshaw.

5.0 out of 5 stars physics are no longer hard to learn, 10 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Physics made easy, (Hardcover)
I bought this for our granddaughter, it has an easy way of explaining this subject which can be hard enough for any adult.....but this book explains it in easy English. much easier for adults, and children to understand. scientist, have a way of making subjects so they can understand it? but no-one else? because they will not make it easier for other people.....a bit like medieval days with Latin! just to make people feel inferior? because some-one likes to feel superior! Mmm! "there's not to reason why"

I thought I will send for one. it arrived really quick, and is well worth the money. it doe's the job. so why not give it a try, for yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars a good interesting book, for the face profiler., 7 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Power of Face Reading (Paperback)
if you like books on profiling, you could add this one to your collection. everything I learnt about profiling, I taught myself. we, ( I and my family) have lived in every trouble spot, up here in Newcastle upon Tyne. we presently live in the "byker wall" man...what a place? we have seen knives pulled, etc. I can look after myself, but up here you have too have eyes, up your "jako" (Geordie for Arse) for the un-educated out there! on the Geordie dialect.....so contrary to popular belief, we are educated up here! well some of us, any way. the book is interesting, considering the F.B.I. only get six weeks basic training, yet give profiling, some kind of secret hidden art? only for the authorities?? of which I find offensive. the authorities tell us, the public....there is noooo, you and us? yeah! right guys...ask a police officer what he is doing? standing on the corner of the street? the reply is in the"negative" ending in "off" ask a f.b.i. profiler, how he learnt his profiling skills? ........he will reply, only after years of hard work, and obtaining a degree!!! "what!.... yeah, right....after asking loads of criminals why, they kill? what they were thinking? before they killed...and after! why did they steal women's under shreddies off of the clothes line?? why did you watch your victims? before you killed them??yeah! it takes a degree, to think of that one.....? seriously, if your observant, and listen to people, you will pick things up anyway. but this book, will give you a bit more to observe. I'm a "spirit -medium" I was asked by an ex-detective to locate a body, buried way back in the 1960's after studying the info he gave me, i.e. maps photo's etc. I gave him a location? we checked, the area, there was something there, the detective got scared?? gave everything I had drawn, wrote down for him, to the Manchester cold case team....guess what! the area was totally compromised...(dug up!) what-ever body was there? was removed. and now the f.b.i. now use the Yorkshire moors, for their training? any F.B.I. profiler reading this...."can you do this? locate dead bodies? no disrespect to you, but you will not be able to do this...? so please have some respect for us ordinary people.. "I thank you"
