5.0 out of 5 stars Finally - A Fun and Practical Bach Flower Book!, 10 Mar. 2017
Having found some of the Bach Flower books dry and maybe a little self important (ironic given Bach's message of health), it was a joy to find a well-written, fun book that is easy to read and makes the Bach Flower Remedies relatable to real life. Little question sections throughout the book help you test your knowledge so you monitor your progress whilst a reference section in the back allows you to double check remedies.

I think this is a perfect little book on Bach Flower remedies if you are just getting started or if you want to cement what you have already learned. Although if you are a practitioner, then you have this stuff covered!

Don't be fooled - This is not the cookbook by the wonderful Thug Kitchen! Was very disappointed when I opened my order to find this cheap rip-off...don't make the mistake I did.

5.0 out of 5 stars A New Favourite, 8 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've got quite a few vegan recipe books, but this is the first I have bought by Dreena Burton and I have to say, I will probably be buying her others. It's packed full of great looking recipes made with fresh veg, wholegrains, beans, nuts and seeds - not a processed vegan dish in sight - just tasty wholesome food. A lot of the recipes also offer gluten and soy free versions too. The book covers most areas, so there is something for everyone: breakfast, salads, sauces/dips, soups, sides, casseroles, tarts, burgers, pastas, cookies, cakes, pies & puddings and ice cream. There are even a few raw recipes in there for those who want to try a couple (the orange-chocolate pudding is amazing!)

Another thing I like about the book are her notes alongside the recipes to help you along in the kitchen offering little bits of advice with preparation of ingredients or recommending dishes to go alongside. Dreena also takes the time to point out which dishes are more child friendly, or how to amend recipes so that they are more appealing to younger kids.

There were a couple of potential downsides to the book (hey - nobody's perfect!): For those of you who like photos of the finished dish beside your recipes, you may be a little disappointed, as although there are a few pictures in the centre of the book, most of the recipes don't show the final product.
A lot of the recipes also require a well stocked herb/spice cupboard, so if yours is a little bare, be prepared to splash out on a few chosen ingredients...although in my opinion it will be money well spent!
All in all, this is rapidly becoming one of my favourite go-to recipe books. I highly recommend it.


The Buckland Romani Tarot Kit: In the Authentic Gypsy Tradition

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Cards, easy to read descriptions - a fab guide!, 12 April 2001
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have a more than a couple of books on the art of Tarot reading and I have to say I was very impressed from the outset with this book and deck of cards. The cards are based on an English-Gypsy theme (the author himself is a gypsy half-blood) and are beautifully illustrated by Lisanne Lake. You are first introduced to the cards by a brief outline of gypsy heritage which is to the point and an interesting read. This is followed by the explanations of each cards, as is the norm for most Tarot books however, unlike most of the other Tarot books I have read, Raymond Buckland believes that the most important thing when reading the cards is to get a sense of what you are seeing. He does not therefore spend page after page on long winded descriptions of the precise meanings of each card. He provides a brief synopsis of the "meaning" of each card but then encourages the reader to really look at each card, to see what other things stand out. He uses brief and simple language that is so easy to read, that you almost feel like you are reading a novel. He describes each card with such enthusiasm, it has definitely left me with the confidence to leave all my books behind and really concentrate on what the cards are saying, rather than being bogged down in narrative and worrying about having my normal book to hand so I can give a more "precise" reading. He imparts such an enthusiasm for the cards and the gypsy lifestyle that I find is lacking in many other Tarot and indeed a lot of other divination books.
I would heartily recommend this to anyone interested in the art of Tarot, be they a novice looking for a starting point or an expert looking for a down-to-earth, passionate perspective on tarot reading.
