5.0 out of 5 stars This pillow stopped my 8 months of neck pain in one night., 20 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
8 months of right-sided neck pain, scans, 3 physios, etc, nothing worked (exercises made it worse!). Every morning I had a painful neck when I got out of bed. Still some stiffness but the pain gone. (This is after 2 weeks to check). Amazing. No word of use of a pillow from docs etc. This pillow stopped my neck pain in one night.c, despite my talking about sleep posture. Of course might not suit all but low cost fix. This has changed my life. Thanks!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great variety of stories and high quality, 11 Feb. 2016
This review is from: Hungry in Ipoh (Paperback)
Excellent quality and a wide variety of stories based in or relating to Ipoh, a town in northern Malaysia, between Kuala Lumpar and Penang. Ipoh is famous for food, and has a certain grandeur as was once a booming mining centre. Buku Fixi usually do genre fiction, this is a good addition to the literature 'genre'. As an example of the breadth of quality here, international award winning Ivy Ngeow's witty and insightful story focuses on an Chinese expat returning from London to stay with his father and step mother. Many other interesting stories from all sorts of angles, so of interest to all fans of good writing.

1.0 out of 5 stars There are actually serious books on this topic if interested, 21 Sept. 2015
If anyone is interested in the state of origin of life research (which the author here has ignored) please read The Vital Question: Why is life the way it is? by Nick Lane. This investigates the likely chemical states at the start of biological organisation. The rest is done by evolution.
I have read this (too) long book, and it all reduces to the usual design argument that biology is too complicated to appear by itself. Since Meyer has already decided on the result of his 'investigations' this book could be a few pages long. The rest is to impress the non-scientists with lots of amazing facts. The problem with all this 'design' (the 'signature') is that it has to be around continuously, not just at the start of life: and if a supernatural being (or supernatural beings, to account for biological diversions in Australia etc). None of these non-scientists has ever shown a permanent mechanism for the injection of supernatural design into the material world. Since evolution can be observed in action, and measured, this is a fatal flaw. Quite apart from the massive prejudice in their works.

5.0 out of 5 stars The only thing that works - buy now, 11 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have had insomnia and bad sleeping for ten years, nothing worked, including hypnotherapy, pills etc.
This worked! The book is quite long-winded and the program is 6 weeks, so you have to get into it, and the depth and slowness is what makes it work. Basic concept is sleep compression (all hours of usually broken up sleep, in one go, so you go to bed at say 2am, get up at say 7am), only use bedroom and bed for sleeping (ie, stay out of room and bed), and a load of other things that are supplemental and change your attitudes to insomnia, which works with the main effects to reinforce.
Recommended most highly, even if you think nothing will work.
Also, this book comes from the Glasgow sleep centre for sleepy scientific studies, and was recommended to my by my doctor, and is not the usual dodgy self-help fare.

One of his more obscure books, VG, worth investigating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Noisy and great cover, 22 April 2014

Back to a brutal style and contrasts as in the early records. Anything with cats on the cover is bound to sell. All singing mumbling etc in French. Fantastique!


The Last Word

4.0 out of 5 stars Upstairs Downstairs for Guardian readers, 22 April 2014
This review is from: The Last Word (Hardcover)
Entertaining at the start then falls apart a bit, needs a good editor, this is problem with old writers, they go on too much, and no one dares edit them. Not sure about the sex tips - strangely etiolated - but generally a good read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor operating system, 22 Jan. 2014
I need this for work (most people will say this) and it is an awful phone to use in many many ways, the OS is very confusing, misses things, lose things, no logic (they say use back button, that does not always do what you want). If you've never used a smart phone before, this might appear OK. The camera is good but hard to operate, has poor software, and even that is hard to use. Music doubled up all my files in playlist. Texting, can't get a number out of. Etc. There is an annoying Bing search button just where you brush the case, so it keeps on appearing, that is purely to increase MS hits.
I can't believe this has Nokia written on it.

5.0 out of 5 stars All's well that ends well [haiku], 14 May 2012
The light of fireflies, snow by the window
Across the arroyo
Deep scars
Of a joy ride
Birds cry, tears in the eyes of fish
Mother gave it to the kitten yesterday
