Introducing Happiness: A Practical Guide (Introducing...)
Introducing Happiness: A Practical Guide (Introducing...)
Price: 1.79

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice and useful read, 20 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the best book on the subject of happiness that I've ever read. Unlike the huge number of know-it-all self help books that are on the market it doesn't tell the reader how to be happy. Instead it gives a clear overview of how different cultures, schools of philosophy and religions have dealt with the subject so that the reader can make one's mind on how to be happy. Easy to follow and enjoyable. Worth every penny.

2.0 out of 5 stars Didn't work for me., 17 Mar 2014

Perhaps it works a bit for those with a severe hernia while they are waiting for an operation. However, as far as I'm concerned when you got an hernia the only solution is to have an operation. Anyway I don't regret having bought it and tried it but if somebody wants to buy an hernia support go for the best because most tend to be uncomfortable to wear.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good pushing hands DVD, 17 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tai Chi Pushing Hands DVD 1 (DVD)
A very good DVD that shows clearly and simply how basic pushing hands should be performed. Given that pushing hands is rarely practiced in Tai chi courses and that it's very difficult, if not impossible to learn it from books this is a good reference.

Great visionary essay which is a must read for those who read Brave New World and enjoyed it. It amazes me how Huxley got many things right about our contemporary society.

4.0 out of 5 stars Eseential reference, 3 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent book to have for serious Yang style Tai chi practitioners. It contains all the 108 moves of the Yang Style Tai Chi long form with old but clear photographs and relative explanations. By mistake I've ordered the paper edition and the kindle one. I usually prefer kindle books to the paper ones but in this particular case I think that the paper edition is much easier to consult therefore while I gave 5 stars to the paper edition I' giving 4 to this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very amusing and subtle, 16 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I truly enjoyed this one so much that after having been lent the paper edition from a friend and read it I decided to buy the kindle edition in order to be able to read it again and again. It's one of the best book that I've ever read. A genuine masterpiece of world literature that deserves even more than the maximum five stars allowed in such reviews.

5.0 out of 5 stars An important DVD for all those who like Chaplin' work., 23 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This DVD contains three lesser known Chaplin's silent films that are as funny and as well made as his better known classics. Being an admirer of Chaplin I'm very pleased to have bought it.

This collection is a wonderful and masterly reconstruction of lost films that show Chaplin in the early stages of his film carrier and how he slowly developed his famous tramp character. It's a definite must see it for all Charlie Chaplins' fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good, 4 Sep 2013

Very nice story and great acting but for some reasons though it's a gem as a film I rate it a little below The Kid, The Gold Rush and Modern Time that for me are Chaplin's masterpieces. Worth watching it though.
