3.0 out of 5 stars It works, 25 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this in conjunction with a big bag of compost and immediately planted a row of beans in it. They are coming along splendidly so the Gro Bag gets the thumbs up.


Momma and the Meaning of Life: Tales of Psychotherapy
Momma and the Meaning of Life: Tales of Psychotherapy
by Irvin D. Yalom
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Respected therapist disappoints, 25 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Irvin Yalom has written a number of really insightful books about therapy and its practice. I'd expected to like this as much as LOVE'S EXECUTIONER but was disappointed as it often seemed like a tired recital of cases where the clients read like cardboard characters rather than real people.


Sauve-toi, la vie t'appelle
Sauve-toi, la vie t'appelle
by Boris Cyrulnik
Edition: Mass Market Paperback
Price: £6.64

5.0 out of 5 stars Trauma and its aftermath, 25 Jun. 2014
Boris Cyrulnik reflects further on his own experience as a child and the way the environment silenced him - literally for a period - and how this has influenced his thinking as a therapist.


Life, Life: Selected Poems (European Writers)
Life, Life: Selected Poems (European Writers)
by Arseny Tarkovsky
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful poetry, disappointing translation, 13 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First met Tarkovsky poetry in his son's film MIRROR and then found translations in a book about Tarkovsky's films by a different translator. Bought this one in the hope of reading more and being similarly affected. Unfortunately the translation is less sensitive but better than nothing if you don't read Russian.


Swivel Peeler with Stainless Steel Blade - simple utentils for your kitchen
Swivel Peeler with Stainless Steel Blade - simple utentils for your kitchen
Offered by Super Utensil Ltd.
Price: £3.83

5.0 out of 5 stars Best kind of potato peeler, 13 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These little peelers are the sort of thing you find in a French market but are much harder to find here. For a while Divertimenti had them but they are very cheap so probably decided they weren't worth carrying. On impulse I checked with Amazon when my existing one (had had it for years) gave up the ghost and was delighted to find the very thing I was looking for without the benefit of Eurostar.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting account of journey in Siberia, 13 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Read a review of this in the Observer and was intrigued. Was not disappointed by the book itself as it reads like a journal from a friend.

The Mysterious Benedict Society: Mr. Benedict's Book of Perplexing Puzzles, Elusive Enigmas, and Curious Conundrums
by Trenton Lee Stewart
Edition: Hardcover

3.0 out of 5 stars Well received but tardy, 13 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book arrived safely from the States but it took longer than I expected (I'd ordered it for a child's birthday) which was disappointing.

Lanzarote Marco Polo Pocket Guide (Marco Polo Travel Guides)
by Marco Polo
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent small guide, 22 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as a present for a family member who was going to Lanzarote so this review is second hand. She found it very useful and because it is small, easily carried in her handbag. It contained everything she needed to know.


Living With a Stoma: New Edition
Living With a Stoma: New Edition
by Craig White
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

1.0 out of 5 stars Patronising advice for those with a stoma, 22 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have posted a comment on the Amazon site for this book where there is one enthusiastic review already posted. I found it an extremely irritating book which although it contains standard advice for those with a stoma, this is delivered in a patronizing manner by someone who clearly hasn't got one. The book is peppered with CBT exercises (the author is a psychologist) but if you look in the index for advice about some of the difficult challenges which face the patient - pancaking,hernia etc - there is nothing. Very disappointing. Save your money and look at the websites fort Beating Bowel Cancer or the Colostomy Association instead. There you will find the advice you really need.


My Innocent Absence Tales From a Nomadic Life by Frank, Miriam ( Author ) ON Jun-17-2010, Hardback
My Innocent Absence Tales From a Nomadic Life by Frank, Miriam ( Author ) ON Jun-17-2010, Hardback
by Miriam Frank
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Adapting to Different Cultures, 22 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An interesting life, interestingly told. Miriam Frank is a doctor and writes frankly and atmospherically about her experiences of growing up in different locations and different languages as a result of fleeing Hitler's persecution of the Jews.
