5.0 out of 5 stars Cool looking memory modules with wide-range overclocking capabilities, 24 Oct 2014
Corsair Vengeance Pro 16GB (two times per 8GB) is great DDR3 memory running on 2400MHz which could be seen as great solution if you are searching for cool looking memory modules with wide-range overclocking capabilities.

At first glance I also liked its design which additionally makes it attractive given combination of aggressive look, colors used and nicely made metal frame which also acts as heat sink.

But most important which makes this memory shines among others are its characteristics and behavior in real-life – start running out-of-the-box on 2400MHz and so far in couple of weeks running with I-7 processor 4th generation not a single time I saw blue screen, even when overclocked.

Therefore, I can recommend Corsair Vengeance Pro mainly for its work, overclocking capabilities and temp mgmt. but also because of appealing design that instantly brings attention.

4.0 out of 5 stars Author manages to make powerful and educating books for children using simple motives, 24 Oct 2014
‘Story of Jeevan ‘ written by Pooja Sardana and illustrated by Shivani Kohli is second work I read from this author after her ‘Fair Race’ an adaption of known Aesop's fable but with an original twist.

Though the themes of two books are completely different, author again manages to deliver an interesting read for children with good lesson to be learned – this time emphasizing importance of nature in our lives.

The main character of story is a hardworking woodcutter named Jeevan who lived near Himalayas in a small village. Jeevan was loved by everyone and he earned for his life by selling wood of trees he cut from the forest.

When one day he saw beautiful mango tree he thought that this special tree would be attractive for selling but after he tried eating mango which fell from the tree, instead of cutting more mango trees he decided to start planting more mango trees.

Now instead of selling wood, Jeevan start selling mangoes to his fellow village people and he has become even more popular and respected member of the community, calling Jeevan Da which means `older brother'…

It’s nice to observe for second time how this author manages to make powerful and educating books for children using simple motives. Therefore Pooja Sardana’s work can be recommended for reading together with kids, discussing themes which can be found within.

Besides simple but imaginative text, Shivani Kohli’s artwork succeeds to nicely complement it making ‘Story of Jeevan‘ a well-done children book that will be enjoyed by young readers.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice variation of the familiar story, 24 Oct 2014
‘A Fair Race’ created by Pooja Sardana is an adaption of known Aesop's fable but with an original twist that is providing a worthy lesson for children.

Like in original Aesop's story ‘The Tortoise and the Hare’ the two main characters are the tortoise (named Philo) and the hare (named Bouncy) which are racing. Of course, Bouncy the hare is much faster but because of his over confidence he will take some time to sleep, In original story tortoise took the offered and won the race, but in this one Philo the tortoise was fair and he woke up Bouncy not wanting to win unfairly.

When awaken and finding out what happened, Bouncy was so impressed with tortoise fair behavior that he declared him as winner.

By changing original and known story, Pooja Sardana emphasized important lesson for kids – though one may on short run achieve something with being unfair, on the long run being fair to others will make you liked and you’ll be able to make lot of friends.

Pooja Sardana created a nice variation of the familiar story and together with cute illustrations found within this e-book this is work which can be recommended.

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.


Minecraft: The Complete Handbook Collection: All Four Handbooks in One Box Set

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended for quantity and quality of information but equally because of beautiful design, 23 Oct 2014
Minecraft: The Complete Handbook Collection is opportunity for all those who have been sleeping last 12 months to grab at once all four handbooks - Essential Handbook, Redstone Handbook, Combat Handbook, and Construction Handbook - which describe in details the Minecraft world - all the aspects that have made this game so popular providing countless opportunities for players to enjoy.

Everything started with Essential Handbook one year ago which on one place offered all the information about Minecraft, to the intermediate level I would say – providing info about crafting, enemies, resources, protection and many more. The great thing about this guide was that you're not even supposed to be familiar with the game before, and after reading it, you were able to play it at a serious level, using a variety of content that is available.

As a nice add-on, book even featured interview with Marcus "Notch" Persson who is guy responsible for creation of Minecraft.

Next book in series was useful guide to Redstone Handbook, one of the most complex parts of Minecraft world.

Advertised as a guide made by and for Minecraft experts that will take reader through all the aspects of Redstone, this guide managed to fulfill the promises for the most part, although there were some more minor details which separated it from becoming the ultimate guide.

You can read my other review, not to repeat myself (lack of crafting and using of ballistic projectiles, etc.) but in terms of almost everything this second book perfectly complemented Essential Handbook. Also included were some exclusive tips from game creator and some cool Redstone creations.

Combat Handbook was the third installment, providing many tips and tricks about all those (mainly hostile) creatures and players which surround player when trying to defend and survive in the world of Minecraft.

Inside information can be found about crafting/repairing basic personal armor and weapons (such as bows and swords, but also TNT) to the more complex things such as enchanting (potions - both those good and bad), multiplayer, setting traps, achievements, building fortifications and defeating enemy in 1:1 fights.

Additionally, nice overview of all kind of monsters which you can encounter is presented - dead or alive, human on animal - such as skeletons, zombies, spiders and many more. In order to help player, guide writers provided advices how to beat these creatures, stating their weak spots and how much health they have.

The result was book which made difficult task of surviving a bit less challenging therefore managing to fulfill expectations even for more advanced players.

And last book included is Construction Handbook, which concluded the series with tips and tricks about building and constructing things helping player to survive and prosper using presented ideas that will stir player’s imagination.

As I wrote in my separate reviews, from all Scholastic Minecraft editions this one seems primarily intended to more innovative players which is questionable how much would be acceptable to a wide range of players.
Written as book that will give reader an inspiration instead than delivering fully explained and finished projects for me was more positive than negative feature, but due to that reason some people may not find it useful as they expected.

On the other hand, Construction Handbook succeeded in trying to extend good and well-made series of Minecraft books providing additional ideas for players wanting to take step further into exploration of this world with endless possibilities.

Overall, Minecraft: The Complete Handbook Collection is really complete collection that can be both recommended for quantity and quality of information but equally because of beautiful design of the gold-foiled boxed set in which you will get your books delivered.

4.0 out of 5 stars Marcel’s cheerful spirit and big heart, 23 Oct 2014
‘Marcel the Shell’ made by Jenny Slate and Dean Fleischer-Camp is second installment in series which introduced charming shell with shoes named Marcel to the children book world as well.

Although the story of Marcel and his video clip which became mega popular on Internet is surely already known by everyone, it was interesting to see how picture book will look that for the main character has creature that we have not been accustomed seeing as a hero.

The answer is simple - it is equally entertaining, in Marcel’s adventures will enjoy young children, but easily will laugh adults as well. Marcel will be caught in many different situations, though he won’t give up. Using what is available for him, and mostly his cheerful spirit and big heart, Marcel will succeed in everything he does.

Adding to above mentioned nicely done illustrations, second installment in Marcel’s series is a book that can be recommended for children, especially for his youngest fans all around the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dogs - wonderful animals and great friends, 23 Oct 2014
`Good Dog' written by Garden and Gun magazine Editor David DiBenedetto and fellow editors is beautiful collection of stories which celebrates friendship between people and our best animal friends - dogs.

On more than 300 pages between covers more than 50 stories can be found split into five chapters whose names speak for them:
- The Troublemakers
- Into the Field
- Man's Best Friend
- Family Ties
- Life Lessons

Book starts with introduction made by DiBenedetto himself in which he speaks about his infant son highlighting how important in his opinion is the role of dog in the life of every human being who loves these animals - starting from childhood and throughout whole life's journey.

What follows is compilation of stories from actual life, stories that are full of humor and wisdom or in some occasions speak about sad situations, but all of them manage to touch reader heart in very special way. Speaking about dog's life path from time when as puppies they are playful and clumsy to the old days when we need to separate from old friends which is so hard and painful, authors succeeded to make book which in many ways will additionally attach reader to beloved animal friends.

Quoting his friend Guy Martin DiBenedetto says that "It's simultaneously never the right time for a new dog, no matter what, and always the right time for a new dog, no matter what." And that is exactly what this book manages to arouse in reader heart - a desire that if you do not already have a dog, through a multitude of stories for nth time you will realize how wonderful animals and great friends they are.

And get one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent, humorous, insightful, beautiful, 22 Oct 2014
‘The Top Ten Things Dead People Want to Tell YOU’ written by Mike Dooley is a book that will brighten up your life with its combination of humor, hope, love and warmth that radiates from it.

It would be enough to see the names of the chapters (Your old pets are as crazy as ever, Life is more than fair, Heaven is going to blow your mind, Your dreams really can come true…) and reader can be certain that before her/him is a book that will be helpful, providing comfort for which those who are grieving for a loved ones will be grateful for.

Author in a beautiful way is telling a story how those who love us, but are no longer with us, are trying to reach out to us, still giving us their love which we cannot see, but certainly can feel.

He assures reader that no one dies; we are going to live forever, gallivanting throughout unimaginable realities and dimensions, carried by love, all misdeeds forgiven, surrounded by loved ones and laughter, and all the beautiful things we wish to be surrounded with, in eternity.

Speaking about his experiences Dooley in his stories leads to the place where there is no fear, pain or any other negative emotion, place where we are going to be finally united with all those beautiful souls with whom we shared this valley of tears.

Intelligent, humorous, insightful, beautiful – highly recommended.


Being In Action: How to Wake from the Dream of Introversion
Being In Action: How to Wake from the Dream of Introversion
Price: £1.85

4.0 out of 5 stars Helping you to achieve the level of life satisfaction to which you are entitled, 22 Oct 2014
‘Being In Action’ written by Francis Keogh is more than another self-help title you’ll find on market dealing with “curing introversion” subject; instead, author with this book tried to show why someone should not feel bad about her/himself being an introvert and how to be able to take more out of yourself.

Though Keogh’s book is not too thick and you’ll be able to read it couple of hours it manages to convince reader to stop trying to become extrovert (you can even order pills these days that can you cure your introversion), but instead to accept own personality which will not prevent you to become fortunate or successful.

On the other hand don’t be misguided with only 90 pages within its covers, because author combines different aspects of introversion – spiritual, psychological and philosophical – in order to get deep into this interesting but often trivialized topic.

The result is in front of reader and anyone who decides to give a chance to ‘Being In Action’, especially if considered as introverted person, could get and learn out of it many useful thinks which can be immediately applied in everyday life.

Therefore, if you are an introvert and unsuccessfully tried to cure yourself of that listening to usually bad advice of others, I recommend reading this book that will help you accept who you are helping you to achieve the level of life satisfaction to which you are entitled.

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.

Price: £2.87

5.0 out of 5 stars Good introduction to “law of attraction” concept, 22 Oct 2014
‘The Law of Attraction’ by Wayne Evans is second book I read written by this author after his excellent work ‘How to raise children successfully’ and though I’m not big fan of self-help literature Evans again manages to deliver more in 60 pages than many authors succeed in much thicker books.

Although I am familiar with the term “law of attraction” which somehow tries to prove you can attract good with positive thinking and bad with negative, this was the first book I've read on the subject. The author manages in easy to understand way explain what separates successful for unsuccessful, happy from dissatisfied – proving that everything starts from our thinking, either positive or negative.

His book is full of small wisdoms and unfortunately seems too thin after he manages to arouse reader’s interest. Therefore one can only hope that Wayne Evans would take his short introduction to “law of attraction” and make a book of two or three times more pages, equally interesting to read. With regard to what I have read in both of his books he certainly has the capability to do that.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well-made multi-functional product, 21 Oct 2014
Kyasi Paris Laser 3 in 1 Pen is versatile product which could be found useful in many situations – you’ll be able to write, point in your presentation or use on any smartphone/tablet with a capacitive display.

So far I didn’t have good experience with different combo products, usually when product can be used for two or more things for all of them is usually mediocre, at best. With this one after three weeks of testing I experienced all the best – besides writing, due to its fiber technology pen can be used on touchscreens and as laser pointer it proved useful while presenting.

Pen comes in convenient package box that keeps it well-protected from the possible damage during transport and inside the box besides the obvious, you’ll get 3xLR41 button batteries, 1 x Standard ink refill and short user guide.

Pen is very easy to use – when used as stylus, you need to touch gently the surface of screen and there is no need to worry touchscreen will be damaged because pen was made using a specially made tip that doesn’t scratch screens; while when used as laser pointer, you will need to press and hold button whenever you want to use the laser beam providing strong light which doesn’t flicker and can be easily used across the room.

Though you will maybe need some time to get used to its weight, which somehow seems a bit too heavy, Kyasi Paris Laser 3 in 1 Pen is a well-made multi-functional product that can be recommended for all features it provides.

I received a sample of Kyasi Paris Laser 3 in 1 Pen for the purpose of testing and unbiased review, while all the presented information is based on my impressions.
