Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
A transcript of Radio 2's Pause For Thought, artistically made with snippets of quotes made in to inspirational poster type pages amongst. Though a big radio 2 fan, i've never actually heard Pause For Thought.

At first I found it enjoyable, but difficult to get in to...the first few instances are a little bland and obvious, though of course still perfectly fine and valid opinions. But upon reading further I really did enjoy this. The 'religiousness' of it isn't at the forefront in any way; at no point does it feel preachy, and I feel like i'm being spoken to by calm, intelligent people, regardless of their theologic statuses. Many of the ideals are similar to mindfullness or buddhism, without the annoying aspects of those - it's more a collection of thoughts that probably agree with your own, and opens one's mind up to the reality of different opinions, or a broader way of looking at life.

Overall really enjoyed it, and it's also on the list of good books to give as presents. For someone who needs a bit of motivation or is stuck in a way of thinking and needs out, this book is great for that.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have always thought that Thinking should be put on every school's curriculum. It's very lack of definition is what makes it so unique, so unquantifiable and hence defies corrective examination.

This collection from Radio 2's thought slot, though very interesting and there is one for practically every day of the year is merely a jumping off point, a source of pleasant mindfulness, indeed a book to carry with you into that manic world out there so that when you can find a seat (preferably a quiet one where you can be undisturbed for ten minutes or so) open the book at random ~ in a stichomantic way ~ read, absorb and learn and then look to yourself and how it does (or doesn't) apply to your everyday travel throughout the hours remaining.

Thinking is free, really doesn't take up that much time and, whether you realise it or recognise it or not, you are doing it all the time. You just often never find the time to Pause and examine it ....this collection that is so varied and from every conceivable contributor and his/her own special viewpoint is not only an eye-opener but a mind-expander too.

The book is divided into sections so there is no need to read it from cover to cover initially but find your way in through one of the labelled doors and discover the treasures there before moving on to another room/house.

The multicultural contributors may well take you to zones you have never explored before, that is really really good !!

So take a journey through this book. USE IT to literally take Pause for Thought.
There are no blank pages but I am sure if there were you could inscribe your own entries

The blurb: "In a world that seems to rush us ever onwards, this book is all about pausing. When we stop, and really think, we give ourselves a chance to change direction. We create a space for something new and wonderful to grow. "

7 chapters:
live boldly
understand
challenge preconceptions
connect
love
be thankful
let go

The chapter titles may seem a little like those posters, "dance like no one is watching..." but they are really nice pieces of writing encouraging us to stop and reflect for a moment.

It's a beautiful book to read and give as a present. I've bought three more copies as presents.

This is a really excellent book. It is a real feel good book. I don't listen to Vanessa or Chris Evans but I find these thoughts really uplifting and inspiring. The book itself is beautifully presented. It would make a lovely gift. I'm going to use it as inspiration for my house assemblies at school.

I love Radio 2 Pause for Thought & bought the kindle version which I regret because the format doesn't work, unfortunately, not on my paperwhite, anyway. I wish I'd got the book instead which I'm sure is wonderful but it is just not comfortable to read onscreen. Very disappointed. I've given 3 stars because I'm not leaving a bad review of the writing just the format

This attractive paperback has a distressed looking cover, bright yellow inside covers and ample use of other bright colours to break up the book. With creative use of fonts and colour the many individual chapters are all unique and distinctive making every page interesting and captivating. This book makes the most of its content and is even more interesting than the original radio format its words were presented in.
This collection of short 'thought for the day' type messages comes not from Radio 4, but rather Radio 2 and the hopeful slot on the Chris Evans / Vanessa Phelps shows.
Each two page message of hope has a title and the name of it's author, and the collection of thoughts and ideas originally presented on the radio. The book ends with an index of contributors, which allows you to look up any favourites that you have.
This is both an entertaining read and perhaps something that you may turn to from time to time for a little inspiration or if you feel lacking in 'hope' - for this is the common theme to these stories - they are hopeful.
The design that has gone into this makes this a very entertaining book and maximises the impact of the words used. I like this book on my shelves but also on the coffee table - it is good to pick up and casually consult - in fact, every doctor's waiting room should have one!
