2.0 out of 5 stars Thick skin on tea from new filter., 14 Jan 2011
I've been using Maxtra filters for a couple of years now, usually with good results. I live in London where the water is quite hard, and using straight tap water to make tea leads to a sort of film arising on the surface of the hot tea. Usually using water filtered through a Maxtra filter means that there is no film on the surface of the tea, but when the filter is old and needs replacing, then there is a film. On replacing my old filter with the one supplied by Amazon, and putting through a few jug fulls of water before consuming the filtered water, I find that there is a significant film on top of a cup of tea which I remove with a spoon before drinking. Not sure why this is, but either the filter is just not working, or it's actually adding something to the water which creates the film/scum. Anyway, it's not working as it should.

1.0 out of 5 stars Works 20% of the time on an iPhone 3GS 32Gb, 3 July 2010
Sometimes this works, mostly it doesn't. Weird, I plug it into the lighter socket, the red light goes on, plug it into iPhone, and nothing happens, then suddenly an hour down the motorway it starts charging the iPhone. But you can't depend on it, so best buy another.

5.0 out of 5 stars Engagingly written and informative, 16 May 2010
This could so easily have been a rather dry book, like the same series' book on Linguistics, but it covers quite a bit of ground with admirable cogency and without descending to academic nit picking or classification for its own sake. It is gratifyingly human in it's approach to the subject, well appreciating that all writing has a human context.

If you're interesting knowing a bit about this subject without subjecting yourself to some massive tome, get a copy, you won't regret it, and may well find yourself able to bluff your way through anything Melvyn Bragg might throw at you on "In Our Time".

With a bit of luck, and reader encouragement, perhaps Mr Robinson will write a book on number systems?

5.0 out of 5 stars Gives you the benefit of a lot of experience and research., 12 Feb 2008
I found this a strangely compelling read, very thoughtfully written. Good theoretical information on the mechanism underlying the effectiveness of the Bowen technique, tips on useful procedures for specific complaints, methods of assessing where the roots of the patient's dis-ease really lie, and a very worthwhile section on the practitioner client relationship. That said there is something about the way that this book is written that makes it a much "warmer" read than just a manual.

Usefully illustrated as well.

Very useful for any Bowen practitioner, as well as anyone else involved in body manipulation therapies.
