5.0 out of 5 stars You can do it, 25 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found this to be an excellent book.

It's joined up from beginning to end loaded with great advice and it's a very easy and entertaining read.

Like many other books on this subject it's not going to tell you exactly how to create your own business because no book can but it does set out some simple steps you can take. These steps are backed up by many stories from people who have been there, done it and created good income businesses doing what they love.

I think that a number of people are going to find this book to simplified and say that there is not enough detailed information but in my opinion there really doesn't need to be anything more. What's here is more then enough to create your business, the only thing missing is the imagination and the effort from the reader. If you are lazy and want it all done for you this, like all the others, isn't the book for you. If you are willing to put in the hours and think differently you will get a lot from this book.

As I wrote at the beginning of the review this is an excellent book and as with Chris's previous book it's filled with inspiration to help you along your way.

Well done Chris.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get out what you put in!!, 15 Jun 2009
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Wii Motion+ is not perfect, there isn't the technology yet to have true 1:1 at a reasonable price, and no matter what Sony say with their light wand or Microsoft say with their 'Project Natal', it isn't going to get much better then this until the next generation consoles come along again.

Now for the game.

I have gone through the same thing as a lot of people with this game thinking the Motion+ wasn't working and wishing I hadn't wasted my money on it. Then 2 days later it just clicked. As other reviewers have said we seem to have forgotten that sometimes we need to put a little effort into things. Seriously put the time in and you really will be rewarded with an excellent game, you just have to be concious of what you're doing with your body and learn from your mistakes. If you have gone for a shot which didn't work try to practice it and find out what went wrong and what you can do to improve it. This may sound like a hassle but it would take you a lot longer in the real world to learn this sport. That's also another important point, it isn't like real tennis, it's a lot closer then anything that has come before but it still isn't real tennis, it's a computer game and you still have to play it with that in mind. My only fault with this game is that I would have liked a lot more depth to career mode but I guess it is called GRAND SLAM Tennis and there's only 4 of them. The online mode is excellent and adds some real pressure when your playing for your country too.

All in all I'm having a ball with this game but it did take me 2 days to get there. Put the time in and lose yourself in this game, you won't regret it.
