5.0 out of 5 stars Great product, certainly does the job, 31 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great product, had an activity arch for my first child which didn't hold its shape at all but this one bends to whatever shape or position you need. My 9 week old daughter loves the smiley sun and smiles away at it - I recommend.

Super easy to operate (haven't even looked at the instructions) and sound is good for such a little machine. Recommend, good for the price too

4.0 out of 5 stars Great iPod / iPhone speaker, 8 Jan 2014
Fantastic sound out of such a small product. I was dubious when I opened it that it might be too tinny and quiet but it's definitely a little speaker with a lot of power. If it came with an connecting lead so that you could also connect an iPad or iPhone 5, that would be even better

Life. Business.: Just Got Easier
Life. Business.: Just Got Easier

1.0 out of 5 stars Just read it, 14 Oct 2013
As a psychology lecturer I've been working through a lot of self help titles and this one was on my list. I didn't warm to it in the same way I did Felix Dennis 'how to get rich' which was blatant, to the point and written by someone who has made a kings ransom and who actually slates books of this kind. It offers practical, if not slightly tongue in cheek advice and anecdotes that one can feel included in whilst coming seemingly from a good motive.

This by contrast is heavy on empty rhetoric, mantras, adoring tweets to the author (to beef up his short prose) and Michael Port style advice to 'change your life' that genuinely falls flat. 'Get your mind right and get your business right' (I'm paraphrasing) is about as broad a stroke as one could come across and it lacks any real definition. Likewise the authors claim that you won't immediately 'get it' puts the emphasis on the reader creating meaning from the text - an interesting technique.

The chimp paradox is a great example of a book within this genre that offers readers a simplified, practical 'system' for dealing with and overcoming problems in real life; in goal setting, and creating a healthy, winning perspective. I'd recommend The chimp paradox head and shoulders above this effort as a self help manual, a system for overcoming daily challenges, and as a grounding for further reading on the subject of personal performance management. The techniques within this book can be applied to business just as easily as they have been towards gaining Olympic gold medals for team GB for which the author was responsible!

In short I would not commend 'Life, business just got easier' in what I have found to be a very crowded and largely unhelpful genre. This scores very low on practical advice or psychological benefit beyond whipping up its own (short lived, short remembered) storm. And, as stated above it blames the reader for not 'getting it' as opposed to taking responsibility for what is within its pages. Sadly this short volume ads no insights worth valuing.

Poo Bum

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and fun children's book, 23 Sep 2013
This review is from: Poo Bum (Paperback)
I bought this for my 3 year old son as two of his naughty / cheeky little sayings are "poo bum!" and "bum poo!". He loves it! I guess you may want to avoid if you're keen for your little one not to pick up charming little phrases like the title to this book, but realistic parents with a child with a fun-loving streak will love this
