4.0 out of 5 stars A must read for social services, 5 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book should provide a wake up call for social services. It should also educate those who think that disabled people and their families have it easy. The book provides a well documented account of a family's struggle to get proper assistance from Birmingham county council and the social services. It show how a lot of red tape a poorly run system fails those who it meant to help.

Whilst the book provides a well detailed account from both a medical model and social model of disability, in terms of not receiving proper assistance, I felt uncomfortable with Jane's description of disability being thought of as within a 'dark world' as if disability is something bad. It can give the impression that disability is something bad without considering that it is actually external factors, such as the lack of help she talks about, which produce a negative aspect of disability.

4.0 out of 5 stars So glad to find it, 19 Jan. 2015

So glad to find it. Lovely taste, reminds me of a non-alcoholic mulled wine. Perfect for cold evenings. I prefer it hot but it is also nice cold.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well made product, 19 Jan. 2015

Nicely finished and well made. The stone is nicely polished, but a little lighter than expected for Jade. Will fit most bracelets, although the barrel is slightly smaller than some others. Very good value.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for improving putting aim, 20 Dec. 2014

Good for putting practice, helps improve your aim. The problem is that the ball does not fully return from the shoot. Easy to roll up and keep.


The Chicken Chronicles: A Memoir
The Chicken Chronicles: A Memoir
Price: £4.99

4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable and easy read, but feels like something is missing, 20 Dec. 2014
An enjoyable read about her relationship with her chickens. The book is more about her musings which aren't pulled out further. Just as Alice gets into something she just seems to end the chapter. Alice touches upon some interesting issues relation to human behaviour in connection to various issues, mostly nature, but I didn't feel I was getting her true feelings or argument.


Using Visual Data in Qualitative Research (Qualitative Research Kit)
Using Visual Data in Qualitative Research (Qualitative Research Kit)
by Marcus Banks
Edition: Paperback
Price: £23.74

4.0 out of 5 stars A great introduction to using visual data., 18 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Provides a detailed foundation to using visual data within research. Contains information regarding the theory behind using visual data as well as the practical side of using visual data. A useful book for students and researchers.

As I say this book provides a foundation and not an in-depth theory regarding visual data.


Doing Focus Groups (Qualitative Research Kit)
Doing Focus Groups (Qualitative Research Kit)
by Rosaline Barbour
Edition: Paperback
Price: £22.70

4.0 out of 5 stars A good introduction to carrying out focus groups, 18 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book provides a good introduction to theory behind focus groups, such as what makes them a suitable method to use depending on the research, as well as information regarding how to carry out focus groups. I would recommend this book for anyone, particularly students, wishing to use interviews as part of a research project.


SPSS for Social Scientists
SPSS for Social Scientists
by Robert Miller
Edition: Paperback
Price: £27.40

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for those who aren't confident at statistics, 18 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent book for people who aren't very confident at statistics. Not only does the book provide clear steps to use SPSS, but also clearly explains the various statistical methods, from t-test to Chi square. The book also explains what statistical method is best to use depending on what you are trying to find out. The glossery clearly explains the various terms and thus over all this book provides an excellent foundation for understanding statistics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Execellent quality tea, 18 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The flavour combination takes the bitter edge of the actual white tea. The large loose tea in pyramid bags makes it quite strong and flavourful. The actual tea bags are very strong and unlikely to break
