Overcoming Traumatic Stress: A Self-help Guide Usi&hellip by Claudia Herbert

Well, all I can say I think it's really unlikely that the author has ever suffered from PTSD. It's a book of questions which just totally fail to address the symptoms or experience of PTSD. I am no longer experiencing these symptoms (nothing to do with the book btw), and I read this out of personal interest. I would have been very frustrated to be handed during the time I needed and desperately sought out help. Nice try; probably written from a genuine place, shame it's just not very helpful.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 19 Jan 2013
As my all time fav restaurant I've been waiting for this book for a long, long time. Even though I'm a very experienced veggie cook, used to making complicated meals, I have to say I'm disappointed, I really won't be cooking any of the recipes in it. It's just way too fussy and unnecessarily complicated and there are just so many better things I could make with so much less time, fuss, money and running around for ingredients.

The other thing is the pictures are all very similar, nouveau cuisine type photos of little tiny stacks with some weeny shreds of veg next to them and a smear of sauce. Makes you think you'll still be hungry even after all that effort.

The Cinderella Complex: Women's Hidden Fear of Ind&hellip by Colette Dowling

I didn't get what I expected from this book. What I expected was a selfy-helpy book which would help me get off my lazy arse and get my life into gear. What I actually read was was an historical perspective on the hopes and dreams of the early feminist movement between the 1950s and 70s. I'm not exactly when the book was written, but the "common experiences" she shares are of a the childhood expectation of a woman born and raised in the 1950s. It's quite something to read, now we have 62 years on from the early feminism movement. I recommend it, I liked it, great insight into the hopes and dreams of that generation.
