Superb, I find. If you know how to use them correctly, then they have the power to change how you feel / how your body moves in a very powerful way, I think. Jill Miller seems to be very knowledgeable and has helped me.

Put simply, Terry Darlington's books are great stress busters and quite enlightening in other ways too...and I don't really love dogs either!

1.0 out of 5 stars I don't actually hate this product but, 20 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I don't actually hate this product but...I nearly do. It seems like a good idea and I have seen zip lubricant suggested by intelligent people who sell outdoor equipment. I have found that this stuff - it seems to me - clogs up the zip engagement so that two of my zips stopped staying together. Once cleaned, then this problem went away. Maybe it is just me, but I don't recommend this one, I'm afraid.

5.0 out of 5 stars bath in this beauty, 13 April 2014
I first came across Roger Deakin (who died in 2006) some years ago when I saw him talking about wild swimming on TV when he had just written his book `Waterlog'. I read `Waterlog' back then which, just like `Notes from Walnut Tree Farm' (NfWF), is a book you can just dip into. Roger wasn't a dippy writer, but I'd say that, from his bravely open, artistic and demonstrative words, he was an unusual character with such a feeling and love of nature that I always wanted to read him as a treat. I think that this perhaps isn't always a truly objective assessment or view of the natural world, so some tolerance with Roger's ideas is needed. But once accepted as such, then I found myself bathing in his very real love and fascination of the natural surroundings of his home in Suffolk (close to Diss): bathing in his beautiful words. But I also often found myself learning solid and reliable facts too on a variety of topics spread over the course of a year. Positive and tender love radiates in NfWTF and this is because Roger was an especially sweet and romantic man, I think. And so a book well worth reading for many reasons as it's as much about a special, imaginative human being as about our native plants, trees and creatures. I often felt like getting into my car to go and see for myself the beauty he describes...even if it's not always quite like that in reality...you know?

5.0 out of 5 stars Rich and mind-altering, 1 Mar. 2014
This book attracted my attention having done quite a lot of wild camping myself: having run a little wild and being that sort of person... Without sounding like a weirdo and which I certainly am not, I think that:-

1 This book is probably not what you think it will be
2 It is rich book and I found it best in small doses
3 Reading it was mind-altering for me
4 The reviews on the cover are right
5 I found just a few of Matthew's ideas were not one's I agreed with, but that didn't spoil the book for me
6 How could anyone write such a high quality book about a seemingly bland subject?

5.0 out of 5 stars I just like it, 5 Oct. 2012
This review is from: Counterparts (Audio CD)
I'm not sufficiently musically literate to be able to tell anyone cogently why this is a good / brilliant album. I admit that. I just like it. It seems a very energetic, complex and thoughtful work. I think it's very creative, imaginative and mature - the songs stay with me. I hope others agree. I do love Rush and always have since the 1970's.

5.0 out of 5 stars Admirable Rush, 30 Aug. 2012
This was a gift over a year ago now: I've watched the whole lot several times and the concert section many times. I rate this as one of the nicest gifts I have ever received for many reasons... If you remember Rush from the late 70's onwards, then I think that listening to older Rush will be / must be meaningful. In a world of tension, conflict and unrest, then a short escape into the past like this is really just rather nice. An Admirable band. Genuinely talented.

Superflirt

Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars good on yer Tracy, 28 July 2011
This review is from: Superflirt (Paperback)
I came to buy this book as it lead on, naturally, from an interest in personalities: and after I had done some classes in that subject. I am so glad that I read this book, and I'm so glad that Tracy Cox has written it too. Flirting came easily to me when I was a boy, but somehow or other life had made me block out this great way to communicate. If T.C. is reading this, then a big thank you to you.
Life is so much more of a real joy to be able to flirt unselfconsciously just as I used to as a child and also in a real sexy way too. As an NF type romantic, I do recommend this book completely. Flirting, you know, can be just pure fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars toe loop finish means, and is a sign of, super quality, 10 Jan. 2011
A toe loop finish means, and is a sign of, super quality and comfort. These socks have been made this way and they are unnoticeably comfortable until they do eventually sag. Sagging takes a long, long time to happen, and by that time you will have had your money's worth out them. I wear these even in -13 together with trekker socks and they foot(sic) the bill for me.
