the cover is sheer and you need 3 or 4 coats to get a solid colour. Will not be buying this shade again.

1.0 out of 5 stars terrible exercise in narcissism, 4 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very disappointing in this book. Its a load of hot air and no substance! The writer constantly refers to his website and his business, it feels like its all sell, sell, sell! He compares himself to another speaker who gets paid more then him per lecture - very unnecessary information!

However the main flaw with this book is it promises that even if you don't have anything special about you/your product with amazing reputation you can still get ahead. The whole concept feels very fake like you are trying to fool others you are something you are not. And, like all lies once others find out the truths it would make your reputation worst then before.

He does briefly touches on finding out what is unique about you/your product using very basic methods like SWAT and Gap analysis but this doesn't even scratch the service. I suggest reading "7 Habits of Highly Effective People" by Stephen Covey to really delve into your core to find what is unique about you and what is really important to you. Also the book "Business Networking" by Heather Townsend is very good to then get yourself noticed!

5.0 out of 5 stars the best book you'l ever read! 6 stars! life changing!!!!!, 4 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book has been life changing!

I've seen it a few times but hesitate as I thought it would be another self-help rubbish. After reading an abstract of it I was very impressed and decided to buy it.

I was going through some personal difficulties in my personal and professional life and this book has changed my whole outlook on life. The reason 7 Habits is different from all other self-help books is that instead of focusing on the outside e.g. negotiating skills or building your reputation it delves deep into your core. The book helps you realize how we as human beings can change how we react, feel and see the world. It helps you understand what really is important to you in life. The book shows you how to be a pro-active person who lives in harmony with others. There really is soo much I've taken away from this book that this review won't do it justice!

This book is still on my bedside table, i refer to it and if I have children I will pass these book onto them!

This book gives a set of rules on how to live a productive, harmonious and happy life- to me this book is a bible!

1.0 out of 5 stars terrible, 24 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: LUPI HARNESS BLACK Small (Misc.)
what a terrible contraption. Every time my dog got close to me the harness kept on falling off as the metal bit at the top is too heavy. It just doesn't work as once you put it on your dog there is nothing to fix it in place like a buckle or something.
