5.0 out of 5 stars More power to Seniors, 9 Oct 2014

This review is from: Resistance Band (Misc.)
Cut into lengths I use these bands with two classes of seniors. They are really helpful for resistance work and just the right strength for improving muscle power.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Phoenix Project sparkles, 1 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Phoenix Project was chosen as a Book Club choice and I was resistant to reading it. My laptop and all the frustrations of working with it were enough stress for me, without reading about it! What a brilliant surprise when I decided to buckle down and read it.

It captured my attention from the beginning and has changed the way I think and feel about 'technology'. The book moves at high speed and gives great insight into all that goes into trying to keep systems up and running in a big business.The characters were believable and the way the story unfolds was intrigueing.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good suspense novel., 20 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Miracle Cure (Paperback)
This was the first time I have read Harlan Coben. The book has a good pace and plot and kept me engaged throughout. The characters were well-drawn. I particularly liked the Introduction by Harlan Coben as he is very honest about this book as it was one of the first he had written in his early twenties. Looking forward to reading more of this author's work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jim Butcher has outdone himself, 11 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have been a fan of the Dresden Files from the beginning of the series. Skin Game lives up to Jim Butcher's high standards. I was carried along by the pace and thoughtfulness of the writing. He weaves characters from previous books seamlessly into Skin Game and I was so sorry to reach the end and realise that I would have to wait another year to see what happens to this exciting and imaginative plot.

5.0 out of 5 stars All the science about your body - none of the hype from the food industry, 16 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So clear! Explains why diets do not work and how to help yourself. I bought this publication on Kindle and am sorry about that. Will be buying the book as the tables and research were too tiny on my kindle screen. I now have a way forward that I feel confident will work for me.

One of my favourite authors. Jim Butcher is very skilled at engaging attention and writes very exciting books. He has developed Harry Dresden's character throughout the many books that he has written. The supporting characters are well drawn and the whole series zings along.
