Yoga Deck: 50 Poses and Meditations by Olivia Miller
5.0 out of 5 stars Clear and succinct, 4 Dec 2013
This pack is great to travel with for visual reminders of yoga poses. Good if you have already learned them in classes, I would not recommend them for people as a starting point as you need to know some theory in order to build your own sequence of postures e.g. about pose and counter-pose, which is outside the scope of a card deck. The whole pack weighs 4 ounces, so it's touch and go whether it will come on my trans-Atlantic trip as planned. I hope I can squeeze it in, it's just what I wanted: clear line drawings and succinct instructions. Plus the bonus of an affirmation on each card - all in all, very well thought through and nicely produced.

What emerges is a perennial lesson of history: whilst those in power can live more comfortably off the backs of those who graft to provide… Read more
The Practice of Electroconvulsive Therapy: Recomme&hellip by American Psychiatric Association

5.0 out of 5 stars Clear and practical, 12 Jan 2012
This is an invaluable companion for the practising psychiatrist, covering all the issues involved in the practical administration of ECT. It is clearly written and divided into sections of manageable size, so it's easy to navigate as there are lots of headings, not dense text. Although written from the Amercian perspective, I have found it highly pertinent to my UK practice.
