Wonderworld Trix Tracks Throw and Roll by Wonderworld
Given the current sub ten pound price on Amazon these are a bargain. It's a very nice beginners set and a real bargain. A three and a half or four year old can set up the system with some guidance from a caregiver. My 3 and half year old was delighted with this even though he has two other tris tracks sets and enjoyed following the diagram to build the marble run itself.

The bike arrived quickly to Portugal through Amazon and was not too hard to put together (although I seriously recommend looking at the online videos… Read more
Socrates: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short In&hellip by Christopher Taylor
A few reviews on here say this is heavy going. I have to say I didn't find it so, but it is a serious enquiry into to what we know of what Socrates thought and perhaps a little less of a introduction for complete beginners. Because Socrates wrote nothing that we know of and is largely known through the writings of Plato who very much had his own agenda, this is a difficult task, almost a detective story. I think Taylor does an eminent job of giving a believable account of Socrates and his thoughts even if I don't agree at all points. I would recommend reading I.F Stone's (much older) book as a good alternative account focusing more on the explanation of Socrates execution which is one… Read more
