5.0 out of 5 stars She lives the life - laughter and happiness!, 3 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Laughter to Happiness book needs to be read by everyone who thinks they are sad. Lesley draws on a wealth of courses and experiences to put together a clear way forward to help people to change. it draws directly on research to form simple answers to comlex questions, it draws on her personal experience which helping the reader to understand that their are different options. The section on Elliotology was superb, learning to be like a child and accepting joyful situations for what they are was inspirational. It was good to read of some of the hypnotherapy work especially with the traumatised and how laughter sessions helped individuals. The first and last chapters draw heavily on her experiences in the Masters in Positive Psychology, which is where I met her and (hesitantly) joined in one of her laughter sessions; this was a real heaven sent experience, I was surprised how tthe hour long session which included quite a lot of teaching changed my mood for the month, I remember chuckling, then laughing out loud and finally splitting my sides laughing at the others and then laughing with the others. I felt a weight come off of me, since the I have incorporated snippets of this teaching in my own teaching. I fully endorse the book, for being readable, based on research and yet not stuffily academic. Read the book is one thing, but try the exercises is another and join a group another (the last bit of advice I will adopt myself). Thanks Lesley, the final piece of information is that she really does live the life she is promoting here, well done.

This is a very comprehensive text, I struggled with spending all of the money but actually it is an invaluable resource which all serve me for many years. The other thing to note is that it is written as an academic resource, which Snyder does not always do.

3.0 out of 5 stars A collection, 16 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sometimes collections are good, sometimes not so good, for me this is a not so good but that is mainly because the tracks I like I already have and the one's I don't like I would not bother with. My version has gone to the charity shop.

Ps it is cheap, so not much lost and it does do what it says music from around the world, so for those that want an introduction it is not to bad.

Alex Rider: The Mission Files
Alex Rider: The Mission Files
by Anthony Horowitz
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Horowitz at his best, 20 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've read all of these teenage books by Horowitz. They are exciting, with great characters and twisting plots, except you know that Alex rider will always win! This mission file is different to the others in the series by being more interactive and not a straight read, I have not tried the cartoon version of these books but could see the reluctant reader wanting to finish them. Well done Anthony and thanks, after reading these I went on to read his other superb books. David rawcliffe
