1.0 out of 5 stars Now The Science Bit, 27 April 2014
I'm sure Ms Silverstone has very good intentions and far be it from me to smash her parenting style. However, I find it troubling that throughout this book women are fed the ideal and fantasy about motherhood. It's a white privilege bible of mothering with zero supporting science or research. The author refers to vaginas as chichi's and hoohas. She claims vaccines are toxic and that you can keep a child disease free by feeding super foods. I think it's safe to say that if you're looking for grown up, sensible, wise advice on fertility and mothering, look elsewhere.

I have to confess, I am sad! I must be sad to fall in love with a piece of kit the way I have done with this camera. I have been looking long and hard for the right camera that combines quality and size as I travel a great deal to quite remote parts of the world. I used a Canon EOS digital SLR for a long time. I can't pretend that it will match a state of the art DSLR with USM lens, but not that far off if truth be told. As a compact, I used the Ricoh Caplio, which although excellent in good light, was poor in low light and downright rubbish with flash.
The GF1 is simply a joy to use. Easy, well designed and a solid feel to it.
The picture quality I find superb: great detail and… Read more
