I loved this DVD... as someone who is very picky about the quality of 'workout' DVDs I was extremely impressed with this one. Darcey Bussell just exudes tranquility and even if one didn't do any of the exercises I would be surprised if you weren't completely calm at the end. I agree that it's probably best if you do have some experience of Pilates just so that you have some idea of how to move your body and when the positions are 'right'.

I was completely hooked by this book. I adore books that evoke true excitement and make me want to read more, but not too much so that I read it too quickly and finish it...

This is definitely my book of the year. You will be fascinated by Robert Fitzroy and Charles Darwin and you will want to know more about both: I promise! You will also have to have a map handy to appreciate the journeys made by the Beagle if your knowledge of the Tierra del Fuego is lacking (like mine) and you will definitely be googling for pictures of the Beagle, Captain Fitzroy and the Fuegians...

Generally this book is exceptional but like most things not completely perfect. Nonetheless,… Read more
