5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent book by Colin Campbell, 15 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Whole (Hardcover)
If you read the China Study you will want to read this as well. If you didn't, buy and immerse yourself in the Chine Study first.
The first 1/3 of the book contains valuable information about nutrition. The remaining 2/3 are interesting but as a critique of how research, economic interests and media interact with each other and produce the information available to the general public. An excellent introduction to critical thinking.
(Unfortunately, like the majority of books now, although hardback the signatures of the book are folded but not stitched/sewn through the fold)


Nutritional Therapy (New Perspectives Series)
Nutritional Therapy (New Perspectives Series)
by Jeannette Ewin
Edition: Paperback

1.0 out of 5 stars Superficial and out of date, 10 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found the book completely useless and a waste of paper. I bought two books written by J Ewin and I will not buy another one. (Covers and titles are enticing but content is inexorably disappointing).

3.0 out of 5 stars simple to use but superficial, 9 Nov 2013

There are better books you can buy. It is simple to use but superficial. Written in 1997. I wouldn't particularly recommend it.

3.0 out of 5 stars disappointing, 30 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had greater expectations and found it uninspiring and too superficial. Please remember it is just my opinion. It is certainty very small and I guess it could all easily be printed out in 4 A4.

It is a lovely film. Outstanding performances. Enjoyable by all the family. It is always a pleasure to re-watch it.
The boy’s fascination and love for the natural word is conveyed with such a power and immediacy that I never thought it would be possible

5.0 out of 5 stars Please do watch this film, 26 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Cove [DVD] [2009] (DVD)
Please do watch this film.
It is uncomfortable to watch but certainly worth it.
I bought the dvd after watching the film online. Before watching this film I had no idea that thousands of dolphins are killed every year in order to have a few imprisoned in the sea worlds and aquariums around the world. One of the extra ‘Mercury Rising’ is also very informative and chilling .
It is shocking that the information provided within this dvd is not made widely available by the mass media but kept hidden instead.
By buying the dvd you also support the incredible work that they have been carrying out.

This review is from: Bad Education [DVD] [2004] (DVD)
Gael García Bernal at his very best.
If you have not watched it before I suggest not read the plot. Perfectly structured, engaging.
Regrettably the subtitles are not removable.
Disappointing special features.
A beautiful film.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a great story, 26 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Eye Of The Dolphin [DVD] (DVD)
Mainly aimed at young people who love dolphins. Not a great story.
My 12-year-old daughter liked it.
Dolphin Tale and Free Willy (1) are at a completely different level – don’t expect something similar or you’ll be very disappointed.
Still worth getting one for your child(ren).
The 3 star rating are purely for the theme and message conveyed in the film.
