I Heart Me: The Science of Self-Love
I Heart Me: The Science of Self-Love
Price: £7.31

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful Self Help Book, 22 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a useful book. When teachers or parents told me to "sit up straight" I was never told how posture affects your mood, this book explains this.
We often learn to fold in on ourselves and this leads to others being aggressive and ourselves taking this, when an upright posture and looking the other person in the eye develops a confident adult-adult relationship.
You may find that this is the book that yo have been seeking for a positive mental approach.

4.0 out of 5 stars Photo book about the railway from its reincarnation to the near present, 25 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is mainly illustrations, with a brief story.
It is what it says on the cover.
I would have liked to know more details about how this little railway achieved so much.
I will have to buy another book.
This one is worth buying for the illustrations.

Tenn Mens Bib Front Cycling Leggings with Moulded Pad - Black M

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good value summer tights, 2 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very good value summer tights at a price less than you might expect to pay for a pair of basic shorts.
Seem to be a good fit. The pad is bulky and looks akward.

I have found all the replacement batteries bought on line for this phone to be unsatisfactory and need frequent re-charging. I decided to buy a new 'phone eventually.


Canvas Webbing Belt Grey
Canvas Webbing Belt Grey

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful belt for casual wear, 21 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Canvas Webbing Belt (Apparel)
This belt adjusts to exactly the size that you require. It takes a bit of fiddling to get it to lock and unlock before you work out how it is designed to be used. Sometimes the teeth that retain the buckle onto the end of the belt disengage but it is easy enough to re-attach.

2.0 out of 5 stars Well made compression wear, 26 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This garment would be very good if the manufacturer's sizing recommendations were better. I bought a medium size which they suggest, but the garment tends to slip down when being worn. I should have trusted my instincts and bought a small size.

Squares of this size are seldom in the shops. It is well-made and is perfect for long vertical lines, very useful.


The Gay Gospels: Good News for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered People
The Gay Gospels: Good News for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered People
by Keith Sharpe
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Revealing book on homosexuality as depicted in the Bible, 22 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book shows that the Church's teaching on sex, marriage and homosexuality is very far from what the old texts say. King David, Joseph of Dreamcoat fame and Jesus himself can be read as homosexual and there is no voice of criticism in the Bible about this. The book shows that the Church has imposed a misleading gloss on Biblical texts in order to support a misogynistic, homophobic point of view.


Out in the Army: My Life as a Gay Soldier
Out in the Army: My Life as a Gay Soldier
Price: £4.29

5.0 out of 5 stars Touchingly Honest Account of a Gay Man's Life, 22 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
James Wharton gives a frank account of his life in the army and it highs and lows. He is a brave man who has had a positive influence on attitudes to homosexuality. Too many people associate it with the raving queens portrayed in screen comedies and do not know what it is like to just prefer men. Read it.
