The Smell of Sin: Making Friends in a Multicultura&hellip by Don Everts
5.0 out of 5 stars a little gem, 25 Aug 2012
This book was a real find. I had recently heard of Don Everts and was keen to read something of his. This was a good one to read first, I am now slowly working my way through some of his other titles. They are accessible and honest and more importantly..helpful. Anything that helps you to look again at what you have been taught or picked up over the years has to be good. Re evaluating and questioning, encouraging and enabling..i'll settle for these descriptions.

5.0 out of 5 stars A pleasant surprise, 11 Mar 2012
I was pleasantly surprised at the well produced book that arrived on my doormat. Full of very good quality photos from the film this hardback book was an interesting accompaniment to the film. Aimed at a teenage audience (?) I feel it was a useful addition to a collection of books that I occassionally use in teaching a general film studies course to young teenagers. Worth buying.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Simple Treasure.., 23 Aug 2011
I had been researching material on the history of gardening and came across this title. The book itself is nicely presented, it has an attractive cover and comes at a reasonable price. The real pleasure in this book comes with the beautiful woodcut illustrations and the original descriptions. My research is ongoing but I keep coming back to this one for the joy of reading through the text. My only regret is that it is not hardback !
