5.0 out of 5 stars Confirming unlawful treachery behind UK entry into EU., 15 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent start to a subject that needs exploring further. I like David's attention to detail in producing reliable (official) sources, and the ability to get all this material in focus. It is a book that will be quoted by other authors often in the future, and it is a good idea to find out what he actually says. I hope he writes more on this subject. There is no reason to doubt the unlawful treachery behind our entry into the EU after reading David Barnby.

3.0 out of 5 stars First class rant on the subject .., 7 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A little too much repetition and rant. It is a book that could do much better after a few more drafts. Having worked through it all emotionally, the author should now bring out a much better second edition. I might then finish reading it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading for conspiracy theorists, 7 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: War Is A Racket (Kindle Edition)
One of those essential books to have read, if one is a conspiracy theorist. Smedley Butler leaves little to doubt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Should be on the compulsory reading list of care workers, 21 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent book, summarising her other book, From Anxiety to Meltdowns, as an anxiety/meltdown management manual, and both books provide helpful insight and helpful advice to many people on the autism spectrum. They are particularly helpful to those with process anxiety around their fear of meltdowns. Both volumes should be read by all people dealing with autism. This deals with the management, and the other deals with the dynamics in much greater detail, and are the most helpful books I have read so far. Both should be compulsory reading by all care workers who could be first responders.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful, 2 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found this book very helpful, although with one reservation; it was directed at those who seek to adapt the child with AS to the world of people who are regarded as normal (NTs), rather than help the child understand this world. It was a top down approach from the NT point of view, such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), rather than a sensible bottom up approach, such as Transactional Analysis (TA). All the same I found this book very helpful in teaching me how the care professional NTs at the present time see the aspie problem. This was in itself a very useful insight. This gave me some idea how far we all have to go in the future. My conclusion was that what aspies need are more books by aspies, approaching the problems from their own point of view, explaining why NTs behave the way they do, as Dr Eric Berne explained in Games People Play, etc. This would do a much better job of integrating them into the community at large, rather than trying to modify their behaviour without that insight. All the same, I do recommend this book to both adult aspies and care professionals. It is well worth reading for a number of reasons.

5.0 out of 5 stars Age of the best screen plays ..., 8 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: An Age of Kings [DVD] (DVD)
I am still watching the series, and only wish the BBC had kept up the standard. They went down the pan in the later sixties, and have never really recovered since then, except when they wanted something from the government of the day, as with this series of course. I shall certainly buy more in the BBC Screen Play series, as they become available. It does show what the BBC could have done as a matter of course over the last fifty years, if they had really cared about what they were supposed to do.

3.0 out of 5 stars Helpful ...., 12 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found it helpful, and agree that the sensory overload problem is the prime cause of the autism spectrum disorders. I hope that Temple Grandin will take this further, and includes more information on the brain. Although I disagree with him on some of his suggestions, I found his insider insights most helpful.

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointing endings .., 12 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as a present, and my friend found it disappointing, because the endings were never satisfactory. It is a formula that no doubt works for some, but not for my friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent first buy .., 1 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It arrived the following day, and is of excellent quality. What I like is being able to add another Duvet to it during during the Winter months, with suitable ties and buttons, and at the moment have doubled it up on a single bed.
