4.0 out of 5 stars Laptop fine, Windows 8 a nightmare!, 31 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This laptop is a good spec and met all of my requirements bar ONE! It took me a whole week to discover that it has "secure bios" which prevents installing another partition with Linux for dual boot. This isn't Acer's fault I imagine, but is a feature of the Windows 8 OS, which though designed for security purposes is a pig to overcome. The machine should come with a "health warning" to tell you this so you can either learn how to overcome being unable to change the boot order, or choose a Windows 7 machine instead.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not even worth one star!, 29 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this book for my wife who is suffering extreme pain on the right side of her body from shingles. Medication just wasn't helping. After one month the pain was unbearable, nothing was working. After buying this book we sat and read it together from beginning to end in a couple of hours. Next we chose from the many elements in each section (Bathing, Nutrition etc). Within two days she had developed stomach problems, within four days she had bloating, wind, sharp pains, and constant burning sensation. After 6 days we sought further medical advice and were told that her digestive system had been severely disrupted by all the vegetables, smoothies, and fruits she had eaten as advised in the book. It will take quite some time now to get it back to normal with the help of a nutritionist. And, oh yes, she wrote to the author after a few days describing her symptoms and received a reply of "take some aspirin"!!
Dangerously useless.

A brilliant book, handy size, well laid out, good guidance for the 10 steps. Indispensable to our teacher training in Nepal where everybody wants one!
Whether you are new to p4c or an experienced practitioner this should be part of your toolkit. Just buy it!
