5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful dark writing- "on a night when God's eyes must have been elsewhere", 18 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you like short stories then you are in for a treat. Lloyd writes with sensitivity and compassion, even while her stories are sinister. Her characters are desperate and haunting. Her language is rich, textured and nuanced.

Some examples of her beautiful writing:

"The moon was hanging in the sky....like a moist, red grape."
"...he'd a funny hatched face as if he had fallen asleep on a candlewick bedspread"
"...the water was dark, all its facets sombre, slate grey and rippling"
"And as I watched the beautiful serenity of the floating trash, I felt awe, if awe is a solemn quiet kind of thing that reaches deep inside you."
"we have to live in the world as it is now despite the noise, don't we?"
"...as if there were ants carrying dead things back to their nest"

And many more.

This captivating, delightful collection of stories which will leave you unsettled and thoughtful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid book, 29 Dec. 2013
I am an MBA student at LBS. Bhimani taught the course and his book has been splendid. The book explains concepts and backs up explanations with examples from modern organisations like Starbucks, Renault, Facebook etc

Each chapter goes into real detail which accountancy students would appreciate. For me as an MBA student i could easily decide on how much depth i wanted on individual topics.

I recommend this book to anyone studying for an exam or who just wants to understand accounting concepts to use at work.

5.0 out of 5 stars I learnt so much from this book!, 29 Dec. 2013
I really enjoyed this book because the language was simple and easy to understand. The author explains difficult concepts using case studies and illustrations which made it interesting eg Zara,Facebook,Mercedes and amazon. I hate numbers and have never been able to grasp financial concepts, but i read a chapter of this book every night and after a week i challenged the accountant where i work and he was surprised! It also explains management issues from a finance point of view which was fascinating. I found it really useful and highly recommend this to anyone who has to deal with financial and management issues.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, sweet and very profound, 7 Dec. 2012
This review is from: I Still Love Me (Paperback)
This profound little book is based on the simple idea that tapping on meridian points on the body, derived from acupuncture, can release energy blockages that cause negative emotions. The book teaches children how to cope with every day experiences, through amazing multi-cultural illustrations of the tapping technique and a sweet little jingle.
I loved it for its simplicity and wisdom.
Dont miss reading and teaching this for children you love....
