This is a great book that will give you lots of ideas to add some energy into your life. It also gives some good advice about forming habits that when done consistently over time will help to improve your standard of living and overall happiness. Well worth the small asking price!

5.0 out of 5 stars Get more productive and have more moments of Zen-like Calm!, 16 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is brilliant and has already made me far more organized and productive. I have read Getting Things Done by David Allen and while it had some good ideas, I found them difficult to put into practice. It's totally different with this book - there are lots of practical examples of how to put the ideas into practice and exhibit ninja-like ruthlessness and experience zen-like calm in your day to day work.

Graham has a brilliant way of explaining all the different ideas and I love the ninja metaphor (the illustrations throughout the book are great). The book is light-hearted and easy to read and has exercises at the end of each chapter to get help develop your ninja powers.

The CORD (Collect, Organize, Review, Do) productivity model is simple, yet brilliantly effective and it's very easy to implement. There are just 4 simple habits to learn and apply in order to become a productivity ninja. I have set up the different lists recommended and use the daily and weekly reviews to stay organized and feel more on top of what I have to do. The chapter on organizing your email is worth the price of the book alone (it helped me get my inbox down to zero AND keep it there!).

Highly recommended!

I'd also recommend Zen To Done by Leo Babauta to go with this book (they are very similar and work well together).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Collectioni of Stretches, 16 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
All of Al's books are highly recommended, but this came at a perfect time for me. I really want to be more flexible and what Al has written here is a great collection of stretches that can be added to any exercise program (or just part of your everyday routine) to improve flexibility.

The book is full of some great and inspirational photographs that clearly show how to do each stretch. The explanations are also clear and tied in to your breathing.

A lot of the moves come from the world of yoga, but have different names, but this is certainly no bad thing as yoga provides some excellent postures for flexibility.

Anybody who wants to get more flexible should get this book and add the moves into their exercise regime.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great preview ... but order the full book, 7 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good preview that actually gives you a lot of full chapters to read through and gives a good idea about what the book is about. I'd advise everybody to read the full book however, as it's excellent, but if you're not sure, then just download this and see for yourself!

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I gave this to my friend's four year old and she instantly loved it. It kept her busy for hours looking through the book that came with it and trying out the different activities. It was very easy to set up and my initial thoughts were that is would be a bit too complicated for a young child to use .... But what do I know! She was using it with confidence almost straight away and picked up how everything worked really quickly (much faster than me anyway!)

The book that is included with this is a 'taster' with lots of different stories ranging from Disney's Monsters Inc to a page about body parts. There's also a section that helps with writing and letter formation.

There are lots of different activities to do with the pen and I'm sure that it will help children learn and enjoy reading on there own. That's not to say it takes the fun out of reading together though ... It's still fun to do together, but also something that a child could quite happily sit with on their own.

Just one word of warning ... This does tie you in to buying

I've since bought another book to go with this and this has also proved very popular. Overall, highly recommended!

This review is from: Lose Control (MP3 Download)
Heard this at their recent Manchester xmas gig. Liked it the first time I heard it and it's grown on me even more since. It shows a bit of a different sound but still has that familiar Courteeners sound ... looking forward to the new album!

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found this because I was looking for a product that wasn't tested on animals. This one is also very good for the environment too, since it's a crystal.

I works brilliantly - there's no marks, no scent ... and it stops you smelling through the day - all you need to do is apply it in the morning after a shower.

The branding looks good too - not as wimpy looking as some of the other crystal deodorant brands ... much more manly!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Shaker Bottle, 14 Jun 2012

This is just the standard Buchstiener MixMaster shaker, which means it is a quality product that does what it should. The branding on this one is cool and it's a good price (especially with free postage).
