1.0 out of 5 stars Only three of the four discs included (in the cellophane shrink-wrapped CD jewel box), 6 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived with only three (2 - 4) of the four discs advertised and mentioned in the packaging. I was gutted because I planned to take this item away with me on holiday.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic CD!, 15 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At a time devoid of any meaningful sense of zeitgeist it's incredibly refreshing to reconnect with music that is so substantive, soulful and relevant. My busy life means that I do most of my music listening in the car, so this great, great double CD has proven to be a great hit adding colour and brio to the daily commute, and something I enthuse about to family, friends and work colleagues.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and instructive book, 10 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Definitely worth a read, although I'm only 27% through it on my Kindle. However, I have become sufficient enthused by what I've read to send my daughter a hardcopy version, figuring that it will help her evaluate future life options; not just now, but in the years ahead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value timepiece, 1 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love this watch, so much so that I bought two of them: one black, and one blue. Sure they lose time if not worn; that's because they are powered by kinetic energy, but I quite like the retro aspect of putting the time right by listening to the pips. Just think of all the money you save on batteries.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic value with a great, deep reedy timbre on the low notes, 1 Mar 2014

A fantastic, value for money instrument. I'm learning to play the yamaha fife as a prerequisite for the flute and bought this instrument as a novelty. I love it.

This review is from: Work From Home (Kindle Edition)
Generally good, but I'm not astounded. I felt it could have spent less time on discredited pseudo psychological analysis (even Carl Jung distanced himself from his 1921 Psychological Types about four weeks after its publication) and more on practical checklists. It's been my observation that a lot of books in this genre don't quite hit the spot, either name checking madly or incapable of describing the prerequisites for successful self employment / entrepreneurialism.

2.0 out of 5 stars Didn't last long, 11 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Our 2 children initially loved this, the stars and music were soothing and it quickly became part of our bedtime routine. Unfortunately after less than 3 months use the sound quality has deteriorated and is awful, poor volume and tinny. It is positioned where the children cannot reach it, it hasn't been dropped and the batteries have been changed (new Duracell) so there is no obvious reason for this change. Overall a good idea but a poor quality product for the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Read Susan Blackmore's other books, 1 Jan 2014

I was impressed by Susan Blackmore's A Very Short Introduction to Consciousness, so thought I'd give this book a whirl.
