Ginsberg, Kerouac, the Beats and the Hippies
Ginsberg, Kerouac, the Beats and the Hippies
Price: 0.77

4.0 out of 5 stars looking for a quick fix, 23 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I looked for a quick intro to the Beat era and found it here. Born in 54 in a far distant land and nowhere near the Beat scene, it passed me by and now my son needs background info for an essay on Ginsberg. I reckon for young people who cannot know the far reaching effect of the Beats, this could help.


In Sheep's Clothing: Understanding and Dealing with Manipulative People
In Sheep's Clothing: Understanding and Dealing with Manipulative People
Price: 8.96

4.0 out of 5 stars very useful, 2 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found this book to be clearly written and deals with relationship issues in different examples, some of which were very familiar if not quite painful to read as a person who has allowed manipulation to occur in various parts of my life. I need time for some of the recommendations to become embedded in the way I deal with aggressive manipulation. About half way through the book I sensed relief that it was not necessarily a misconception on my part of some of the behaviours I was so confused about and experiencing at the hands of a covertly aggressive person. Well worth trying if you are confused and frustrated by someone else!

4.0 out of 5 stars The right size for the job and well packaged, 31 Dec 2013

Looking for a solution again, I needed thin wires to wrap around Christmas decorations to insert into muslin covered wreaths. Had to be easy to bend so that kids could work without pliers. Worked well. Still enjoying using the leftovers. Looking to buy a top up soon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous effect...just have patience, 31 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Needed it in a hurry so that I could experiment with the glue on white muslin. Came quickly and worked well. Only criticism is that it takes longer tan I thought it would to dry. Patience paid off.

I needed a whole lot of "funky" foam for a series of workshops. The product came quickly and the colours were just fine. The families we worked with to make foam frames for their photos were happy too...thanks

5.0 out of 5 stars For the homesick..., 4 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am biased, I know. I have a great fondness for his stories as it feels like home for an Afrikaaner in a faraway land. A good collection with a sprinkling of poignant black and white photos.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's okay. Sometimes too anecdotal. If you're looking for a more systematic approach, there are better books around., 4 Oct 2013

It's okay. Sometimes too anecdotal even if the examples are quite interesting.. If you're looking for a more systematic approach, there are better books around.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful and wide ranging, 2 Sep 2013

Organising and/or recording various 'fills' has always eluded me. This book is so useful in this respect. Comes up clearly on my iPad and the price is very good for what you get.
