5.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable, effective, and simple technique for inner work and addressing problems, 21 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book will show you how to get in touch with your inner guide (or "spirit guide" as some people term it). It's as simple as daydreaming, but rather more useful. With the guide you can work on the blocks inside you that result in mental, emotional and physical problems. Children take to it very easily, of course... but some adults have more reserve. It is clearly written and based on the author's own experiences. Although there's quite a lot of text relating it to Tarot, kundalini and astrology, this isn't necessary to understand or follow, unless you respond to those subjects. You could, if you prefer, skip all that and simply go with the guide through an inner landscape to directly access the parts of the psyche (aka unconscious) that are the cause of life problems. These areas of the psyche can manifest internally as figures, objects, scenes or dramas. They are then addressed and changed from blocks (undermining negative energy) to positive energy, which becomes integrated into the ego. Once the guide has been contacted, they can be accessed in any life situation as an inner companion and wise voice. Sometimes the result is hard to believe when an inner or outer situation changes immediately as if by magic, but sometimes it is much slower going - all depending on how much there is to work through. I would call this book life-changing, if it is put into practice. I know quite a few people who have tried it out - and it has worked for them. Go for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hooray - this has stopped months of complaining about the phone, 12 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Every time I was on the phone to an elderly family member, there was the recurrent complaint - "I can't hear you properly". "Well put the phone closer to your ear." "I've got it right next to my ear". After I started virtually shouting down the phone: "That's a bit better". Now with this amplified phone - no complaints! Phew! Well, at least no complaints after said family member had learnt the purpose of the green (on) and red (off) buttons, and the buttons on the side - plus (higher volume) and minus (lower volume). Now I no longer have to shout. I can talk normally.

5.0 out of 5 stars You'll get what's in the picture - and it works, 12 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There's a strong clip, though you'll need the right size support to clip it onto - something like a chair back. Good for close work as you can position and angle it fairly easily to get the right light intensity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bargain price, does what it says, 12 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted a clip on light and I got one. It works. There's not much more to say about it. The picture gives a good idea of what you're going to get. The only disadvantage is this kind of design which can sometimes be difficult to angle exactly how you want it, but that's intrinsic to the design, and not the fault of this particular model.


In the House of Ladders
In the House of Ladders
by Bill Lewis
Edition: Paperback
Price: 10.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Accomplished, lush, metaphysical and skilled contemporary poet, 12 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This man is the real deal. Dense but comprehensible language, sometimes with neat word plays, but all revealing a sensitive, thoughtful, at times troubled, but ever-questing individual, who draws in personal experience and archetypal mythology. A book to transcend the daily hurly burly.

Seems the genuine stuff and a good price if you would rather tap on a keyboard than tap dance down to the supermarket (and find they've run out of the stuff)....

3.0 out of 5 stars Well made, but hard on the eyes, 12 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I feel a bit mean giving this only three stars, as it is a bargain price and a well made item - strong cardboard, not a bit of flimsy stuff. However, I find it very hard to use because of the "op art" effect of the strong contrasting squares, which is a bit dazzling and makes it hard to scrutinize the chess pieces in play. I will be looking for something easier on the eye and keeping this in reserve.


The Stuckists: The First Remodernist Art Group
The Stuckists: The First Remodernist Art Group
by Katherine Evans
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars The Stuckists seem here to stay........., 12 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Stuckists group were founded in 1999 by Charles Thomson and Billy Childish (ex lover of Tracey Emin who called him "stuck") to stick up for painting pictures and accuse those who exhibited beds or sharks as art of being stuck. Something like that. This books shows the early incarnation of the group with a mere 13 UK artists (there are now hundreds of Stuckists in dozens of countries round the globe - see what they've started!). It is A4-ish size with one third of the pages full size glossy colour images of paintings (most of them in focus and properly cropped) and the remainder of the book given over to text, which includes artist biogs and a profusion of manifestos. It seems to be rapidly escalating in price, so I presume copies are getting rare and obviously there is a demand. A number of other books on the Stuckists have since appeared, but this remains seminal and hence something of a classic. Unless you hate the Stuckists of course.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you want what is on the label on the tin..., 12 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
...you will find it inside the tin in this case, or, in other words, it says "100 artists' manifestos" and 100 artists manifestos is what you will get, their mostly glorious, turgid, self-indulgent and inflammatory declamations leavened by the helpful, personal and slyly witty introductions by the urbane editor, a Professor - of all things - of International Relations at Nottingham University. The book certainly seems to be popular, being displayed in leading bookshops and both inside and outside various Tate shows. There's plenty written about artists; here you can read what artists want to write about art. The book is weighted towards the earlier 20th century, when manifesto writing was all the vogue (hence "from the Futurists") with Dada, Surrealism et al, and progressively tails off, as no one got round to writing them very much, apart from Gilbert and George, Baselitz, Derek Jarman, Kitaj and, finally, the Stuckists, who feature with three of their effusions, the last including the immortal statement from the hitherto-unknown Edgeworth Johnstone of Muswell Hill: "YBA means You'll Believe Anything".
