Fit Kids: 7-17 years
Fit Kids: 7-17 years
by Robert Duffy
Edition: Paperback
Price: £15.99

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is excellent and essential for parents who want to encourage their children to be fitter and healthier., 16 Jun. 2016
This review is from: Fit Kids: 7-17 years (Paperback)
When it comes to exercise and fitness, starting young is essential if you want your children to enjoy an active lifestyle when they get older as well as ensuring that you children stay healthy. This book is a great guide that is designed to help both boys and girls from the ages of 7 to 17 lead a healthy lifestyle.

This book is aimed at parents rather than the children themselves and is packed with helpful advice. It would have been very easy for the author to make this into two separate books – one for boys and one for girls, but having it all in the same volume means that parents with both only need to buy one book. Of course all the information about a healthy lifestyle applies to both boys and girls, but the charts that are included (green for boys and red for girls) are very specifically tailored to the different genders.

Though this book is aimed at kids, there is an awful lot of information in this book that adults will also find useful, especially if they are still children at heart – after all, it is much more fun to play a parachute game to get into shape than it is to run on a treadmill for twenty minutes.

The tone of this book is extremely encouraging, it doesn’t condemn parents or children, but instead gives a lot of information about the benefits of healthy eating, overall fitness and exercise. The way the book is broken down into short sections and the bold headings make it really easy to search through the information to find answers to questions, advice on activities that will engage kids and ways in which parents can join in so that it doesn’t seem like the children are being put through an exercise regime, it becomes something that is part of their everyday life.

This book is excellent and essential for parents who want to encourage their children to be fitter and healthier.

5.0 out of 5 stars In depth and intense, 16 Jun. 2016

This book is packed with information that analyses literature and science. The author is clearly incredible learned and has spent years exploring both subjects in order to create this volume. This is a book that has a limited appeal, as many will find the sheer volume of information and depth of the research overwhelming, but for those that are students of science and literature it is a truly fascinating read.

4.0 out of 5 stars An entertain read, 16 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The title of this book alone is enough to make you want to read it, it’s one of those titles that reaches out and grabs attention, even before you’ve started to read the first page.

Stopping the world and wanting to get off isn’t an usual feeling and this book explores the daily grind of life so perfectly that there are many people out there that will instantly be able to sympathise with what the characters are experiencing, especially the discussion between Susan and Jack in the prologue over the colour of the kitchen.

The downside to this book is the high number of grammatical errors that become extremely distracting from the outset. The writing style is smooth enough, and the characters are very easy to relate to. One thing I really did enjoy about this book was the number of times that “Gordon Bennett” was used as an exclamation.

This book is an interesting concept – a mixture of dreams and reality that manages to switch between the two at the right moment to keep the reader wanting to know what will happen next on the two different strings that hold this story together. If you are expecting a straight forward story about struggling to deal with life, this is not what you get from this book.

The more fantastical elements of this book (Big and Jake’s adventures) are wonderfully creative and keep the reader guessing as to what will happen next. The book is broken down into very short chapters that make it easy to digest and for those who don’t have long to read every day, the short chapters make it very easy to read one in a short space of time.

Overall this book is entertaining and the character of Susan is one that people will find very endearing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product. Can highly recommend, especially for the price., 28 April 2016

Though the design is the same for the top and bottom skin, it looks great, goes on easy, actually fits the console and sticks well. Even the controller skins fit well and have stuck without any anyone peeling. It's also clear which skin is for the top and which skin is for the bottom before you start applying them. Great product. Can highly recommend, especially for the price.

Great product, really easy to put on, looks great too. The matt finish is perfect, doesn't feel cheap or nasty when you pick up the console. The controller skins were easy enough to apply too and haven't peeled off. Couldn't ask for more.

5.0 out of 5 stars You definitely get your monies worth from this book, 28 April 2016
There is no such thing as doing enough preparation when it comes to the UKCAT. This book is one that really is worth buying as it not only offers 1,200 practise questions to help you prepare, but it also offers advice on how to approach each section making it much easier to use than other guides I have seen.

The size of it actually felt like a workbook to me, rather than a small book that makes me feel like I am doing Sudoku or crossword puzzles instead of UKCAT prep. This isn’t ideal for everyone as it does make it more difficult to use on the bus, tram or train.

The tone of book is well-pitched, it explains things and offers extremely helpful advice without being condescending or patronising, something that can be a problem with educational guides. It is also written in a very concise manner. You don’t lose precious study and practice question time on reading lots of unnecessary bits of information. The way the guide is laid out, it is perfect for people who are just starting their UKCAT prep as well as those who are few weeks away from the test date and want to get as much preparation in as they can.

The sections that the book is laid out also make it easy to keep track of where you are and also the areas where you are struggling and might need to do some additional testing in.

This particularly version of the UKCAT guide has been tailored for 2017 UKCAT entry and really is a must have for those who are expecting to take the test. Priced at £10.99, you definitely get your monies worth from this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning from start to finish, 10 April 2016
I loved the Allow Joy album by Mr. Sadler, so I was so excited when I found out he was doing a live album.

He's such a great artist to sit and listen to, each of his songs is filled with emotion and has a message, not like a lot of modern music that is soullessly manufactured. Hearing a live album is even more wonderful as there is a raw sound that comes along with the emotion and makes each song have a much bigger impact than if they were recorded in a studio.

When you listen to talented musicians,whether they are relatively unknown or renown the world over, it's the music that reaches you, the moments when you see them perform live that actually reveal whether the talent you love is genuine or comes through sound desk magic. This album really shows that Keith Sadler and his friends are skilled musicians that love playing, from how they play, this album really comes across as a labour of love and I would recommend it to anyone without a moments hesitation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of an English Rose by Allyson R. Abbott, 1 Mar. 2016
There is something wonderful that leaps off the page as you start reading this book. The imagery employed that instantly brings to mind the scent of ironing and fresh laundry evokes a homely and happy image that really sets the tone for this book.
Like all of Abbott’s Silver Night Romance books, this book focuses on a woman of the older generation, an 85 year old; a mother worrying over her children and their choices, and even their approach to ironing (or lack thereof).
One of the great things about this book was the inclusion of the glossary at the start of the book, as this book is full of British expressions and colloquialisms, this proves not only useful for those who are reading this book and have learnt American English, but also for those who are coming across some of the words and expressions for the first time.
There is something deeply sad about this book that comes across in the memories that Rosemary goes back to visit throughout this book and how she views the modern world and what it means to be an aging woman, with bad hearing and failing eyesight. However, all of this is changed by Bill coming into Rosemary’s life. This instantly changes the tone and feel of the book and brings in a wonderful contradiction between how Rosemary’s children treat her and how Bill treats her.
This book is a very heartfelt look at old age through the eyes of an older woman and the pitfalls and traps that come with trying to show how much we love people that can often be misconstrued. A wonderful short read that is perfect for reading in a short burst and is perfect for Mother’s Day.

A really encouraging book for those who are looking to step out of a job they hate and do something that they want to with their life. This book is a great first stop for anyone considering becoming an entrepreneur and needs a place to start learning from.
