2.0 out of 5 stars Warning!, 18 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this book thinking it was written by Michael Wood of the 'In search of...' BBC series and the wonderfully written book 'Conquistadors'. I was shocked as the story I was reading was, by comparison, poorly written and superficial. So be warned. Obviously, if you are a fan of this Michael Wood then you will think otherwise.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Looked ideal but wasn't. I wanted this for use in my walking boots and there wasn't enough padding. I can see, however, that thicker pads would have meant they probably wouldn't fit into ordinary shoes easily. The main problem, though, is the material which is silky and thus moves, something more grippy would have been better.

Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain: A Course in Enhancing Creativity and Artistic Confidence
by Betty Edwards
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £16.59

5.0 out of 5 stars Encouraging and practical, 6 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book had been recommended to me by an artist friend. It has not disappointed. The author makes it clear that everyone can be taught to draw and she gives the basic skills that are needed for this. She also illustrates what she says with exercises. I have found it an encouraging, insightful, well thought out/researched and well written book.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love the writing style of Marlena de Blasi, 16 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love the writing style of Marlena de Blasi, almost poetic. Her book is partly a personal account of her relationship with Fernando (the man she married) any partly about the Italian people she met and formed meaningful relationships with when they relocated from Venice to Tuscany. You can read this book separately but you would have a fuller account of her life with Fernando if you read her 1000 days in Venice first. I am a lover of italy and I really enjoyed the way she conveyed the lives of ordinary Italians in these two places. The author is also a cook so you get plenty of reference to food and even some recipes!

This review is from: Conquistadors (Paperback)
This book is well written and very informative. On the back of it I bought Michael Wood's dvd. While I enjoyed the dvd I enjoyed the book more. It contained more information and gave much more of a feel for the times when the Spanish conquered South America. Would recommend highly.

This review is from: Young Winston [DVD] (DVD)
This film gave a good insight into the early life of Winston (emotional neglect) and helped to explain the man he became. I find him fascinating. He was a complex and contradictory man. Acting very good. Would recommend the film and the book called 'Young Winston' (I think). The book, as I recall, focuses more on him as a young man and leads into the Winston Churchill of the Second World War who most people know.
