5.0 out of 5 stars Life Changing!!!, 28 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Other reviews put this book & it's author down for pretty much blatant advertising, but hey, if you used the products, or produced your own products & could increase your income through a bit of name dropping, then big deal. He is, after all, appealing to a very small section of society & won't be expecting much income from the book - you can't give the guy too hard a time when you consider these aspects. Also, taking a positive slant on this aspect, maybe if your a new comer to all this, then a few brand names will point you in the right direction - it's your free choice to buy what you think best meets your needs, of course a brain is required...

Anyway, I've done a large array of sports from gymnastics to bodybuilding to triathlons, etc. & had always followed the "recommendations" on dairy foods, meat, fish, fruit & veg, however, I've never felt "quite right" after eating any dairy products & most meats, but always thinking "must get enough protein". Symptoms such as aching joints, elevated heart rate, lethargy, etc. always occurred, but I ignored them for decades.

In the last few years my health had slowly deteriorated, despite following the "guidelines" & trying to maintain consistent exercise programs, my weight continued to increase & I was regularly ill, the aching joints & general feeling of 'crappiness' continued. I've tried many supplements, some of which, admittedly did help.

Then, quite by chance, I came across this guy's book. I initially purchased it out of mere curiosity, but as I read I found many comparisons with my own life. Suffice to say I identified with him on many levels & I can truly say his story is both enthralling & utterly inspiring. After reading the book I've converted to a mostly, but not exclusively, vegan diet. All I can try to convey is how radically different & energised I now feel, everyday!

The joint pains & constant niggling injuries have gone & although there's a chasm between his fitness & mine, I can honestly say I've not done this much exercise, recovered so quickly or felt this healthy since I was a teenager & that was 21 years ago!!! - despite the old "can't get enough protein if you don't eat meat & dairy foods, whey protein, etc". If you want to read an awesome & inspiring story & might want to learn a bit or two about an alternative, but nutritionally & ethically sound lifestyle as you go along, then you won't be disappointed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of Money!!!, 26 Dec. 2012

Bought this telescope as a Christmas present back in September, opened it up & set this thing up "by the book" & was very careful after the reviews on the topic. All I can say is I've had better views with a cheap pair of binoculars or the naked eye!!!

This machine did not fall below expectations, it never even entered the spectrum of expectation, low or otherwise!!!

I will be returning the machine due to this obismall performance.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap socks, expensive price!, 26 Dec. 2012

These socks are advertised as thick, high quality socks, they are the exact opposite - spend your money on another brand, mine have holes in them after a few weeks of light use & washing!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wedge Welly - Great Turnaround!!!, 30 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These boots were a gift for my wife & were origonally ordered way back in April, however, at that time there was a problem with the order & I was very dissatisfied with how things were handled, but...

The company then contacted me recently to apologise & make amends, I won't go into to too much detail, but this has now become one of THE BEST levels of customer service attention I have ever recieved, I commend them on their turnaround! I would remove the negative feedback, but can't see the option to do this!

Oh, as with regards to the boots, my wife loves them, great product & highly recommended!

In short WELL DONE!!!
