Positive Psychology In A Nutshell: The Science Of Happiness
Positive Psychology In A Nutshell: The Science Of Happiness
by Boniwell, Ilona Boniwell
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Basic insights only, 2 July 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a very elementary introduction to positive psychology, and was too lowest common denominator for my taste. It also felt very padded out. There must be better starting points than this.

2.0 out of 5 stars The little death, 2 July 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'm afraid to say that this book didn't do anything for me...the only toe-curling was from reading the turgid prose, and my hand was sore only from turning over the many blank pages - think of the poor trees sacrificed for this!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good kit, 18 Jun. 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Well made, well designed, good quality - a simple free weights system in a bag - without the weight until you need it! You fill up individual sacks with sand or water to produce the weight as and when you need it. The bags are incredibly well built and tough. Just good kit all round.

2.0 out of 5 stars Aimed at teachers, 18 Jun. 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I hadn't realised that this book is aimed solely at teachers, and is designed to spark new ways to teach and enthuse students, by all variants of 'thinking outside the box' etc.


Heels on Wheels

3.0 out of 5 stars a bit of fun, 18 Jun. 2013

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A quirky and good humoured look at how grown up girls get back in the saddle, for the first time since childhood. Attractive illustrations and sensible advice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good item, 18 Jun. 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A very useful item for those starting to learn the Russian language. Well designed for the target market, with the first CD focusing on everyday essentials, and the second CD covering more of the culture and literature.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting read, 18 Jun. 2013
This review is from: Fatal Tango (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I wasn't sure what to expect from this book, but was pleasantly surprised. I hadn't heard of the author before, but would certainly seek out his other books. An engaging thriller worth reading.

2.0 out of 5 stars Style over substance, 18 Jun. 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I expected more from this book, but was sadly disappointed. The writing style is not engaging, and it's a chore at times to work through it.


How They Started Digital
How They Started Digital
by David Lester
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Just an intro, 18 Jun. 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
No great business insights re the digital success stories - this is more of a dry overview of the various companies, rather than a 'how they did it'.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing new, ironically, 18 Jun. 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A bit Emperor's New Clothes, and not as new or radical as it likes to think it is. You'll get something out of it, but as Paul Daniels said - 'not a lot'.
