Buddhism: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions)
Buddhism: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions)
by Damien Keown
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.39

5.0 out of 5 stars An indispensable guide to Buddhism, 20 Jun 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This book is fascinating whether you are completely new to Buddhism or have a little knowledge of the philosophy behind it. With detailed explanations of the principles of Buddhism from the beginnings of the Buddha's life to modern days it covers a huge amount of ground for such a small book. Whether you have a different faith or no faith at all the opportunity to understand this worldwide religion is invaluable. You will certainly be wiser by the final page and you may even find some lessons for your own life.

4.0 out of 5 stars A useful start to wet shaving, 17 May 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My son, who has just started to shave has used this product for a number of weeks and is impressed with the comfort and closeness delivered by this shaving product. It is something of an equivalent to a Braun toothbrush in that the action of the power razor makes it easier to gain the results required. Apparently there were a few nicks early on as he got used to it but now that he is able to judge the optimum pressure to put on the skin he has had no problems with nicks or patches of heavier stubble. All in all I would recommend this product to anyone who wet shaves on a regular basis.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to set up, 25 April 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a very good piece of equipment that my daughter was really excited about receiving. The set up was straightforward and the variety of heights available for the net is a really useful feature. The hoop is sturdy and the net looks like it will be hard wearing as well. If you want to move it, you would probably be well advised to empty some of the water out, but it is staying put in the garden during the rest of the spring and summer so I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Start for reluctant trainers, 25 April 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The beauty of this system is that the control lies with you rather than the equipment. If you are unfamiliar with this kind of suspension training, the main focus is using your own body weight to ensure an effective workout that doesn't overtax your muscles. The door anchor allows you to train in any room without the usual fear of the door flying open or being unable to support the weight of the equipment. It also serves, initially at least, as an inhibitor to overtraining as you have to get used to how much pressure you can exert. I found it easy to use especially once you have looked at the DVD and for someone who hasn't used this system, or indeed trained in many years, it has been a useful reintroduction to weight training.

4.0 out of 5 stars Problem free installation, 18 April 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Although by no means a technophobe I was very impressed with how easy this device was to install. It plugged in to my Lenovo laptop and it was extremely easy to use via a USB. I can't comment on how easy it is with a mobile device as I haven't and won't connect it with wi-fi as I am worried about the inherent safety of the system. That being said, it has a huge amount of space for my purposes and will be a very useful addition to my storage capability.


VIBE BlackDeath On Ear Headphones
VIBE BlackDeath On Ear Headphones

5.0 out of 5 stars Skull crushing sound, 17 Jan 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Every so often, a product comes in packaging that is not merely a gimmick but a touch of genius. That is the case with these VIBE BlackDeath headphones. The skull is a real talking point and an obvious table decoration for Halloween! The headphones themselves are as good as you could want especially for the price. The noise cancelling headphones do their job in no uncertain terms, making my son's heavy metal music played at high volume completely inaudible to anyone passing! In terms of sound quality the sound from either a Laptop or an MP3 was first rate. I totally recommend these headphones and would be astonished if you can get anything better for twice the price.

Philips LivingColors Micro Colour Changing Mood Light Black (Integrated 1 x 4.7 Watts LED Bulb, Touch Control)
Price: £27.87

5.0 out of 5 stars A great start to the morning, 17 Jan 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This Living Colours lamp is a great addition to my early morning routine. Instead of waking up, turning on the main light and blinking as my eyes get used to it I now put this mood lamp on. You can choose from a huge range of colours, but be warned it can be difficult to control the first few times you use it! It can also be a little difficult to turn off, but you simply need to remember that one quick press on the on/off button is all that is needed. Although I've only had this for a short while I now can't imagine any other way of starting my day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gentle but effective on your hair, 17 Jan 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I got these for my 15 year old daughter who sometimes needs to straighten her hair for parties or for dance. Others that she has borrowed or used have been too damaging to her hair for her to use them on a semi-regular basis. The Remington, however, has a much better performance on relatively low temperatures so I am much happier about her using these. They heat up quickly and evenly without making the straighteners themselves warm to the touch and the results are pretty much instant. I was so happy with their performance that I even let my 12 year old daughter use these and I hadn't let her touch hair straighteners before then. You can use these with confidence even on fashion conscious children!

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use, but needs larger range of coffees, 17 Jan 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The Dolce Gusto machine is a smart compact coffee machine that's easy to use. It took us five minutes to set up and get working and I doubt most people would find it anything other than user friendly. As you can only make one cup at a time it can take a little while to make drinks for 6 people, but that isn't really too much of a problem. For my wife, a real coffee lover, the only drawback is the fact that you are tied in to the Dolce Gusto capsules which leaves you with a fairly limited range of options at your local supermarket. Once the range is expanded this product would be almost perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Celtic Class, 20 Oct 2012
This review is from: o n e (MP3 Download)
With all the hype about Adele, Leona Lewis, Susan Boyle et al, music buyers have forgotten about a young lady with the best and most versatile voice in popular music today. From her initial success as an 11 year old prodigy Charlotte Church has moved between genres with an ease that none of her contemporaries or successors have been able to match. On her new EP 'One' she has produced a set of songs that clearly reflect her interest in Celtic music and her indie sensibilities, most effectively showcased on the haunting 'Beautiful Wreck'. I've never heard her voice sound better or more relaxed as it soars to hit high notes that others could only dream of, particularly on the gorgeous 'How not to be surprised when you're a ghost'. This is new music of the highest quality and it deserves to be heard by the widest possible audience, but Charlotte is now in the happy position of not having to worry about commercial success. Paradoxically, this relaxed attitude has allowed her to make some of her most accessible music ever.
