5.0 out of 5 stars This year’s dark horse when it comes to online marketing books, 21 April 2015
‘Ask’ written by Ryan Levesque behind these three simple letters in title actually hides a book that is anything but simple – an ultimate formula for a new, colorful online marketing of 21st century, something that can significantly improve the profits in the business one leads.

I know, you might think the same as I did – every day we encounter dozens of books that offers success, almost instantly, after you open their first pages. But on the other hand, any of them didn’t succeed riveting me to the Kindle screen until the last page has not been read. The reason is simple - there is something in this book, why you cannot stop reading it.

I liked author’s sentence in the very beginning that as a father, husband and manager, because there is never enough time for everything, he is very picky when it comes to which business books he is going to read. Levesque believes that most of people think the same, but still he is sure that his book deserves your time because it manages to provide something that is the second most commonly given response what people who ran their business lack the most after the time – the money.

He provides info that Ask Formula is responsible for generating over $100 million in sales online, managing to change significantly a whole range of industries, not only in a way of financial impact but also in a way of changing regular users into fans and frequent buyers.

In order to make things simpler he divided book in two parts – the first in which the author gives own background and explain how the Ask Formula was invented; and second that is kind of methodology section explaining how to apply formula in particular business, using a step-by-step gradual approach. I liked the way Levesque himself pointed out that if you're the type who does not like to waste time and wants to “cut to the chase” immediately jumping to the second part because I did that, and then after been intrigued with the content, I returned to the beginning and read quickly that part, as well.

The only thing Glenn Livingston asked reader in his foreword is to stay open-minded and have will to implement some of the stuff Levesque introduced in his book, even on the basic level, because 95% of competitors probably never will. And though it might sound like an advertisement I can say for myself that I already started…

‘Ask’ from Ryan Levesque is certainly this year’s dark horse when it comes to online marketing books, and with every right I recommend it to all that need such knowledge and skills.

5.0 out of 5 stars Teaches how to go through loss of a loved person and provides comfort, 21 April 2015
This review is from: Picture of Grace (Kindle Edition)
‘Picture of Grace’ written by Josh Armstrong and illustrated by Taylor Bills is a profound picture book that carries a wonderful message of comfort, so important when we experience the loss of a loved person.

The author introduces us to Grace, a young girl that is very close to her grandfather Walt, who is an artist. Grace adores her Grandpa and most of all loves to spend time watching him paint.

One day, as Grace will be preparing to visit her beloved grandfather, her mother will bring the news that Grandpa has passed away, the news that would leave Grace heartbroken because of the great love little girl felt for him.

Grace will find out that Grandpa Walt left an unfinished painting and she will decide to finish it by painting two of them together on it, for a lifetime memory of him…

‘Picture of Grace’ is book for children that captures the heart with its text, illustrations and a message that carries; the text found within the covers will be easy to understand even for the youngest, though the adults will enjoy it, while each spread is filled with beautifully made digital illustrations full of bright colors showing the scenes full of details.

Yet the most important part of picture book is a wonderful message that the book offers - how natural is to care about the beloved ones and how difficult is to suffer their loss. However, there is always a way of helping ourselves in a way to remember all the beautiful things we did together with the one who is no longer with us, just the way little Grace did.

Given the beautiful theme, easy to comprehend text full of emotions and nice artwork, ‘Picture of Grace’ made by Josh Armstrong and Taylor Bills is the picture book that can be fully recommended for children and their parents as the book that teaches how to go through loss of a loved person and provides comfort when needed.

I was given a copy of this book by the author for the purpose of unbiased review, while all the presented information is based on my impressions.


Fighting for a Daughter: A Father's Journal of Battling False Abuse Charges in "Family" Court to Maintain a Relationship
Fighting for a Daughter: A Father's Journal of Battling False Abuse Charges in "Family" Court to Maintain a Relationship

4.0 out of 5 stars Much more than emotional confession, 21 April 2015
With ‘Fighting for a Daughter’, the author Guy Madison takes reader to a journey into the past, back to the worst period in his life when because of false abuse charges that came from his ex-wife and members of her family, Madison was not in position to be with his daughter for a long period of time.

Although it is difficult to say how many cases similar to his exist out there, even knowing that one man suffered so much injustice makes this book a work that is certainly worth reading in order to prevent any future similar cases.

Madison’s memoir is strong and full of emotions as author tells the story about his ex-wife that because of fear that he will get the custody lied whatever she was able in order to make sure he would be no longer a threat to her plans. Unfortunately, nor the organizations did not help - Family Court and Child Welfare - but justice even though it was slow at the end prevailed and many years later the author got a chance to explain his daughter what actually happened.

Taking into consideration that the time period was long until the truth came to light, no one could turn back the time. So it took time and effort to make daughter – father relationship better, but today they two are extremely close, and the author's granddaughter and his son-in-law together with his daughter are also integral parts of happy family.

As author told, his case is not unique, but is certainly one of the worst examples of parental alienation. Therefore, Guy Madison with his story is trying to reach as many people as possible, including those that can improve how false allegations are handled, especially during the divorce cases, in same time keeping children safe from real abusers.

Rightly the author concludes that Child Welfare can be distracted from working on real abuse cases while losing time on false ones. Hence his book is not just a story about author’s own painful case, but also offers particular solutions to improve the system, in order to avoid similar situation for the benefit of children, and their parents as well.

As conclusion it must be said that Guy Madison’s book in addition to being an emotional confession of one parent whose child was unjustly taken away while he was wrongly accused, also gives hope that injustice in the end will be always corrected – while reading of this book and similar can certainly be of additional help.

5.0 out of 5 stars Teaches about the value of cooperation and mutual respect, 20 April 2015
This review is from: By Mouse and Frog (Kindle Edition)
‘By Mouse and Frog’ made by Deborah Freedman is a new book for children that through the story of two main characters writing a story emphasizes the importance of cooperation, mutual respect and joint work.

At the beginning of this story, a young reader will be introduced to the two main characters – Mouse and Frog. Mouse will wake up in the morning eager to start working on the new story that has a mouse as a leading character. But Frog has some other ideas and wants to add some new motives to the story, such as ice cream, a cake and a king.

Though Mouse will try to fix and fit in every wild idea Frog came up with, eventually she could not stand it anymore and yells that Frog is not listening at all. They will try to start a story from the scratch using the Mouse initial idea that will make Frog miserable. In the end Mouse will realize that if they cooperate and respect each other there is possibility to combine both her quiet ideas and Frog’s wacky ones…

‘By Mouse and Frog’ is the third book for children Deborah Freedman made and in my opinion her best work so far. With her profound story, the author speaks about joint work in literature and art in general, what is particularly interesting because such joint work is very often the case in the world of children's books.

She emphasizes that such cooperation is possible as long as both parties are willing to listen each other and seek compromises, rather than imposing own ideas as the only good ones. Writing is a creative thing and it is often difficult to reconcile opposing views, but taking into account the arguments of both parties and combining of different motives will likely lead to higher quality of the final work.

Using author’s trademark watercolor technique combined with pencil, Freedman again delivers her work in a nice visual style using the bright colors, that makes ‘By Mouse and Frog’ besides educational also pleasant to the eye.

Therefore Deborah Freedman with her latest book again managed to deliver both beautiful and educating title for children 3-5 years old that teaches about the value of cooperation and mutual respect, something that is important for children to learn as soon as possible.

4.0 out of 5 stars How to get rid of many “annoying” tasks before proceeding with fun, 20 April 2015
‘The Big Helper’ made by Rob Scotton is the newest installment in author’s popular children book ‘Splat the Cat’ series that introduced big and a bit clumsy cat Splat that always falls into trouble, but his misadventures always turn out for the best. The subject of this sequel is dealing with daily tasks where through the story of cute cat children will have the opportunity to learn how to deal with solving of many daily things that may appear difficult or as a lot of work, but with good organization can be easily handled.

Splat’s Dad will call up a family meeting and as result Splat will receive few activities that he needs to make – to-do list that needs to be fulfilled. It seems to Splat he will not even get to play or have time to watch television because there are so many activities and it is questionable whether how and when he will be able to solve them…

But Dad will give him some tips and instead seeing list of tasks as long and boring, Splat will turn their solving into real fun.

‘The Big Helper’ is the latest book in Rob Scotton popular series for children that, since 2008, entertains and makes kids laugh around the world. In previous many installments that were delivered with equally detailed and nice artwork, Scotton led his cat through the series of situations and events that are easy for children to identify with regard to their own experience. This time the author again does not disappoint with his illustrations, while the story is something that every kid has a chance to encounter on a daily basis - how to get rid of many “annoying” tasks such as school and personal hygiene in order to proceed with entertainment.

So far if you never had chance to meet Splat, this story is just as good as many earlier to get to know this charming cat and his adventures. It is simple and easy to read with your toddler during the day or as bedtime story, and given a nice lesson that it brings expect some clever questions from your little genius.

Therefore, if searching for a funny new series of picture books for your 3-5 years old child, Splat is certainly an option worth considering - a fun and educating text together with the beautiful colorful illustrations will entertain and educate the child. My young girl is a still bit too small for this topic, so for now she enjoys only in pictures of this cute furry character.

5.0 out of 5 stars 300 pages longer masterpiece, 20 April 2015
This review is from: The Art of Electronics (Hardcover)
‘The Art of Electronics’ written by Paul Horowitz and Winfield Hill is a book that does not need to be additionally presented if you are in electronics business; the thirst revised and updated edition of bestselling and worldwide known electronics manual will be equal treat for new fans and those whose old version was worn out because of constant use.

Horowitz and Hill 35 years ago released the first edition of their book, and after the second, that appeared nine years later, for this third we had to wait for many years. But, the book that is finally with us certainly justifies a long wait – more than 1200 pages where one can find everything related to electronics will be extremely useful for those that did not know much about this scientific discipline, while those that already know a lot thanks to the many details found within and the updated content certainly will be able to expand their knowledge.

The authors drew instantly public attention with the aforementioned first edition of their edition and since then their books firmly positioned itself in the first place of the most used and most recommended books for both professionals and electronic enthusiasts. However, it is necessary to say that the book cannot be really recommend for the beginners because although offering many exercises with provided solutions, however is a bit too complex as a first book that will take you on a journey through this sometimes complicated world.

I'm sure the question that interest the most those who have older editions how worthy is to purchase a new one - the answer is certainly positive because except that your old release (as mine, too) finally will go for the well-deserved retirement, the new edition offers many new and updated material to justify the significant investment, starting from the fact that the new edition is around 300 pages longer than the previous one.

Therefore taking into the consideration that this is a book that covers almost every topic one would encounter in the study of electronics and also will be the great reference guide, I'm definitely recommending Paul Horowitz and Winfield Hill masterpiece.

Simplifine set of 3 Heat Resistant Mats is a well-made product that will be welcome assistance in every kitchen managing to match up well to the more expensive rivals on market, also quickly leading to savings.

The mats were delivered very fast and they came in a convenient package box ensuring that the content is not damaged during transportation. Inside the package there are three silicone baking mats of 1mm thickness, each of different size:
- Full Half - measuring 29.5cm x 42cm (16.5" x 11.6")
- Medium Quarter - measuring 24cm x 36.5cm (14.4" x 9.5")
- Small Petite - measuring 20.5cm x 29.5cm (11.6" x 8.1")

As nice add-on, the buyer also receives the book with 14 recipes - Complimentary Bonus Book – in PDF format.

These mats can be used in the oven (able to withstand temperatures up to 280 degrees Celsius), the microwave and freezer, and though advertised for baking cookies they can be equally useful for baking other things such as fish or preparing vegetables.

Except making the kitchen looks far better quickly, using these mats will lead to savings because there is no more reason for the additional purchase of baking paper and oil, making the process of cooking easier.

Overall, Simplifine set of 3 Heat Resistant Mats is the well-made kitchen product, durable and useful, and while it makes cooking simpler, it also leads to savings. Given its budget price Simplifine manages to outperform the competition of the more expensive rivals on the market, making this product further recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice looking but be aware – a relatively small opening for head, 19 April 2015
I received sample of ACEVOG Women's Chiffon Blouse and gave it for testing to my teenage daughter considering its design that is suitable for the young girls. It turned out that this blouse is a good and nicely looking piece of clothing with one important remark.

The product shipping was extremely fast; only in few occasions I remember the delivery was so fast. The received black blouse has very nice design, though be advised that chiffon as the material is not stretchable. Therefore given its relatively small opening for head, for those with bit bigger heads could be challenging to fit in.

Although in the end my daughter managed to put it on, still it seemed too small for her that made my daughter a bit sad because she loved its design. Hence the recommendation when ordering this blouse, take one size larger than usual.

This is the first sample I received from ACEVOG company and I am satisfied with their service. But taking into account this issue with size I will give this blouse a one star less.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality and nice yellow/black design, 19 April 2015
James Donkey Optical 2000 DPI Mouse is a product of good quality and nice looking yellow/black design that after one week of extensive testing proved its value as recommended gaming choice for those on budget.

The device comes in a convenient package box that protects sufficiently mouse device from the possible damage during transport. Inside the package beside mouse there is only short user manual. Installation couldn’t be simpler, all user needs is to plug the mouse in USB port and after few seconds it will we ready for work. Given no additional software is present, there is no way to change the mouse default settings, however the majority of users will not have a need for that.

Given the possibility to compare this mouse with some much more expensive models and those equally priced, James Donkey delivers the same quality when it comes to scrolling and precision, while lacking additional software that those more expensive models usually have.

The mouse comes with 5 buttons plus the central scroll wheel that can be also used as button; besides regular two, there are also two buttons on the mouse left side and one more on the mouse upper side. The mouse will certainly have appeal on gaming and younger audience given its cool yellow light that shines both from front side and below scroll wheel.

Also worth saying is the mouse is of good build quality and it comes with 5 feet yellow cable (1.5 m) that can be quite handy. DPI switch between three available modes 1000-1600-2000 can be easily performed using the DPS button on the upper side and I had no problems with accidental clicking as have been the case with some other models.

Overall, James Donkey Optical 2000 DPI Mouse is the 4 star gaming mouse that could be seen as good alternative for more expensive models but given its budget price I will raise one more and recommend it this model for all the gamers that are looking for cool designed and well-made mouse, still bargain priced.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressed with quality of sound received for the price, 17 April 2015
GRDE Bluetooth 4.0 Wireless headphones are cool looking gadget that fits well to the listener ears, seems solid and durable. The headphones support Audio Processing Technology (Apt-X) that ensure the best wireless sound, and advertised offer up to 8 hours of talking/playing time and 200 hours of stand-by.

The headphones come in package box that includes Bluetooth 4.0 Earphones, USB cable, 4x spare tips and concisely written User Manual. The package is not big but protects its content well from the possible damage during transport. The headphones are compatible with any mobile and other device I tried such as iPhones, iPads, HTC and Samsung mobiles, desktop and notebook computers – or to put it shortly, I didn’t have any problems using these headphones so far.

The user should be advised to make a full recharge before using these headphones for the first time that is done easily using the provided USB cable. The declared charging time is approximately 1 hour and it is accurate - few minutes more or less were required for headphones to be fully charged.

Speaking about the sound quality what I heard during extensive testing was good; actually I was more or less impressed with quality of sound received for the price. The sound is clean, a bass is a bit weak while middle tones are somehow suppressed, though that could depend on personal taste.

Therefore, GRDE Bluetooth 4.0 Wireless headphones are well-made product that seems durable, the simple headphones that would be convenient to wear, offering the good quality of sound. Because of their durability and quality of sound these headphones could be seen as good choice for a pair of headphones that you can take anywhere you go. Their price adds to their value and also can be seen as the additional recommendation for its purchase.
