5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent biography, 25 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After watching the film "The King's Speech" I was curious to know more about the life and personality of George VI so I decided to read this biography. It seemed complete and extensive. And it is indeed! It's a very detailed portrait of the King's life, from his birth (which coincided with the death anniversay of his great-grandfather, Queen Victoria's husband, and for this reason was not well "taken" by the Queen) to the last days of his life (and the cancer which consumed it). What emerges is a very humble person, who had been mistreated a lot, but still had never lost his good heart and love for the others.
It was very funny to read some passages, especially about his wife and interesting to know how Elizabeth met his husband, and what the King thought of him.
Too long in some passages, but still very interesting, especially in the parts about his brother, the former king, and all the possible theories which could be behind his abdication. Absolutely a must for "George VI's fans".

I've been using this foundation for four years now and I find it absolutely perfect for me: soft, light and with a light natural cover effect. Suggested if you are looking for a refined elegant make-up.

If you want a professional look on your hair and don't want to go to the hairdresser this is a must have. In a reasonable time you can get perfect straoght hair without ruining it. I was "introduced" to GDD by a friend and I'm very satisfied!! It's the best straightener on the market.

5.0 out of 5 stars Musically inspiring and energizing, 29 Mar. 2011
"Don't Stop Believin'": The power of this Cd is extreme!
Not only the selection of the songs is incredibly various and well-chosen, suitable for all moods and days, but the performances are supreme, in some cases better than the original versions.
Since I bought it I have been playing it over and over and I never get tired of any the songs.
There is a song for every "you"; every frame of mind, every disposition, every feeling is put in music. And -even better - some songs are highly ispiring, able to fill you with the right energy every day requires.
Just to name a few...
"Don't Stop Believin'" - when you need a prod...
"Can't Fight this Feeling" - when you shed light on your feelings..
"Bust Your Window" - when you want to get rid of something painful and go on..
"Keep Holding On" - when all you need is a friendly voice to encourage you..
"Sweet Caroline" - when you are in the mood for love..
"Defying Gravity" - when you want to dare your limits..
... and many more!
The voices are deep, fresh and joyful and listening to this Cd has no side effects but making you smile and raise your spirit.
For a very Glee day!
