1.0 out of 5 stars Not fit for purpose, 25 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Simply didn't do what it is supposed to.
Could not get a signal from it on my 'phone except when pressed up against it (rather defeating the object)
Every time my (linux) laptop tried to connect to it, it crashed the wireless transceiver on the laptop requiring a hard reboot.
Went back in the box to Amazon within an hour of receipt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clarity and Depth, 2 May 2010

This review is from: Perfect Exposure (Paperback)
I've read one or two comments on the web that this book is too advanced or too wordy for beginners.
Well, it's not aimed at absolute beginners, and it does assume an intelligent and informed reader; but even a complete novice photographer could read this and find something useful -- and could then put in on the bookshelf to be dipped into again and again as their experience and skill increases.
It's beautifully produced and designed, and Michael Freeman writes in a simple lucid style that is inviting to read.
I really liked it, and it's helped me look at light with a different cast of mind already. I don't doubt that when I've absorbed the lessons Freeman is passing on, my photographs will improve and my photography be more enjoyable.
My only issue (one that might fox the unwary beginner I guess) is that the editing is occasionally sloppy in leaving some technical terms and abbreviations undefined in the text, glossary or index (e.g. "efl" is left to the reader to interpret, and I'm assuming Freeman means Effective Focal Length; there are a few other similar instances)

Cognitive Analytic Therapy for Adult Survivors of Childhood Abuse: Approaches to Treatment and Case Management

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic text for CAT practitioners and psychotherapists, 23 Feb. 2008

This isn't for beginners, and nor is it intended to be. You do need an understanding of the concepts and practice of Cognitive Analytic Therapy to make the best of it. There are case studies which are helpful in illustrating the practical application of CAT with this patient population. The first 7 chapters are perhaps the best and most useful and there are also some clinical outcome studies which may be of interest.
Overall it's excellent, and helped me work more thoughtfully and (I hope) effectively with my own clients.
It does, sadly, seem to be out of print, and I've seen copies go for anything between 80GBP and 200GBP, but I was fortunate enough to find one in Amazon Marketplace for 2.76GBP! (Thank you to AwesomeBooks)
