5.0 out of 5 stars Dark, descriptive, beautiful and subtle, 2 Oct 2013
This review is from: The Outline of Love (Paperback)
Having thoroughly enjoyed McCarthy's first book, The Other Half of Me, I was excited to read The Outline of Love. Whilst The Outline of Love covers a very different subject matter (and painfully accurately so!), McCarthy's distinctive style is present - dark, descriptive, beautiful and subtle - and the characters, whilst not always likeable, are captivating. Like with the first book, I couldn't put this one down. I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone who enjoys character-based, descriptive novels, and if you enjoy this book you should definitely read McCarthy's other work.

The Elements of Moral Philosophy
The Elements of Moral Philosophy
by James Rachels
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars A good introductory text, 30 May 2012
As the other reviews indicate, if treated as an introductory text to moral philosophy this book is a very clear and interesting read. Basic moral theories are explained with excellent examples. There are some areas that are open to criticism but I feel this is a positive thing for an introductory text as it gets the reader thinking and possibly disagreeing - a good start to engaging with the subject. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully simple and effective, 17 May 2012
This review is from: Moody Cow Meditates (Hardcover)
This book explains mindfulness for children in a beautifully simple way, with great illustrations that portray the characters' feelings really well. The mind jar exercise at the end is brilliant and I can imagine it working really well with a range of age groups. This book should be essential reading for children, and maybe even adults!
