Before You Go: The Ultimate Guide to Planning Your Gap Year
Before You Go: The Ultimate Guide to Planning Your Gap Year
by Tom Griffiths
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book for backpackers and parents, 6 Sept. 2007
I bought an earlier edition of this book way back in 2000 before I went travelling and I am very pleased to see how successful it has been. My poor mum was very anxious about me going on my trip but reading this book put her mind at rest - worth getting for that reason alone!

5.0 out of 5 stars Their best effort...all downhill from here, 9 Mar. 2007
This review is from: Giving The Game Away (Audio CD)
This is by some distance Thunder's finest effort. Just Another Suicide, All I Ever Wanted and It's Another Day are impeccably written, still sound fresh and would do very well in today's market. The production is rocky without being cheesy.

It could be argued that after this they gave up on trying on the quality and being successful and are now releasing album after album of dated riffs and cheesy lyrics to please their fanbase, many of whom didn't like this album. What a shame

5.0 out of 5 stars A very insightful book, 9 Sept. 2006
Unlike most gymnastics biographies I have read, this is not your usual gushy and glamourous fare. Believe it or not, Nadia has had a very hard life. The book is extremely well written, and has the perfect tone for younger readers. Nadia explains the tougher times of living in communist Romania and her subsequent defection totally honestly and clearly and without partronising. Although a children's book, adults will appreciate the quality of the writing and a riveting story she has to tell.
