2.0 out of 5 stars A disappointing fall from grace to the rubbish bin of corporate media, 13 April 2015
This review is from: Vikings Season 3 (Amazon Video)
I was completely charmed by the first series - it was an authentic telling of the Old Norse tales and paid tribute to the Old Norse peoples by attention to the details of their daily lives and beliefs. The characters were strong and likeable, despite being flawed and human. It was an exquisite telling of their story and achieved that rare acclaim - popular and well loved across a wide spectrum of the viewing public. Tragically, by the 3rd series, the programme makers are now telling their own story using the tired formula of rubbish populist programme making, with a flagrant disregard for the historical detail that had delighted so many. The characters have become neurotic caricatures, the story lines more like cheap soap operas, and the "drama" I am told like Game of Thrones, although I wouldn't know, I have not watched it. I am not alone in this disappointment - there are swathes of social media sites lamenting the fall of a great series to the dumbing down blandness of corporate media.

Brilliant little book for students of phytotherapy who need to understand the chemistry of herbs. this book covers the main phytochemicals found in herbs and describes their chemical structure, characteristics and examples of the herbs that contain them. Perfect for essays entitled "with a view to its composition, describe the actions of..." Detailed, yet easy to read, it is a brilliant study aid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, 18 Oct. 2005
This review is from: A Path with Heart (Paperback)
This is one of the most readable, balanced and loving books on the trials, tribulations, pitfalls, joys and ecstacies of following a spiritual path. Although written from a Bhuddist perspective, the author is warmly inclusive of other traditions and religions, with the result that the principles are easily applied to any other spiritual tradition. I recommend this as essential reading to most of my healing clients!

4.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for students of herbal medicine, 18 Oct. 2005
Easy to use reference book with explanations of the chemistry of herbs (e.g. flavanoids, mucilages). Also descriptions of the hebal groups (e.g. hepatics, antitussives) and a detailed, materia medica with descrition of herb, uses, traditional uses, indications, contra-indications and latest research. Minor gripes: the number of herbs covered is limited, though he does cover the most commonly used and the author is perhaps too cautious in his recommendations. Much more detailed than books aimed at the lay person ~ a very useful study reference!
