3.0 out of 5 stars very imaginative script, 7 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Salt [DVD] [2010] (DVD)
Good action movie for a bit. Probably will hit cult status for all the Lara Croft groupies

Completely politically incorrect.. I mean, c'mon on, Russian spies going after the US president!

I am guessing this will have a pretty hefty impact on numbers of adoptions from FSU going forward..


The Difficulty of Being Good: On the Subtle Art of Dharma
The Difficulty of Being Good: On the Subtle Art of Dharma
by Gurcharan Das
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Extremely thorough, very well written and excellent tome, 20 Jan. 2012
I am reviewing this book and I still haven't finished reading. I keep reading back to previous chapters because there is so much learning and wisdom to be gained from each part of the epic Mabharata and this book does an excellent job of making one think about the relationship to their own personal circumstances.

The author has an excellent colloquial form of writing which helps when going through such intellectual depth.

For everyone that has questioned the ethics of what they are doing or have done in life - and still needs guidance, this is mandatory reading


The Seven Spiritual Laws Of Success: A Practical Guide to the Fulfillment of Your Dreams
The Seven Spiritual Laws Of Success: A Practical Guide to the Fulfillment of Your Dreams
by Dr Deepak Chopra
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £12.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great and concise guide for improving your life, 20 Jan. 2012
It's quite likely that all you need to know about Deepak Chopra and his books has been mentioned in all of the reviews. Of course some will be cynical - a very small minority albeit - but most are supportive and positive.

This is an excellent self-improvement guide. It's easy to read, easy to understand - Deepak is great at breaking down the quantum physics elements that back up his explanations by using more layman-term language and he provides an encouraging format to follow the philosophy behind this and the various other great books on self-improvement and self-knowledge.

I would recommend this to anyone that's looking to break free from the humdrum of everyday life, who wishes to see if it's possible to follow one's dreams and requires both an impartial and simple but complete guide to this process.

Remember it's all about the journey, and not about focussing on the destination!

Happy reading


You and the Law in Spain 2009-2010
You and the Law in Spain 2009-2010
by David Searl
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent book, 14 Dec. 2011
For the anglo-saxons amongst us that take the plunge to move to the better climate/food/social scene/family environment that a wonderful country such as Spain offers, and thus take on the local bureaucracy, taxation issues and other legal matters that affect daily life, this book is mandatory

From house buying, to insuring your car, to ensuring your council taxes in order: this book is invaluable

And as the law changes every year, there's an annual update from the same author

Incidentally the author has a Q&A page at the back of the monthly magazine from Banco Sabadell - he really knows what he's talking about

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing work for all parents to read, 14 Dec. 2011
There is no single 'correct' way to educate one's child

but this book highlights the importance of constant love and support

true nourishment for any young family starting out on the school/home-school run

a wonderful collection of stories - a pleasure to read, and a refreshing approach to modern day erotica, without going towards the youporn direction

great read


The Seven Stages of Money Maturity: Understanding the Spirit and Value of Money in Your Life
The Seven Stages of Money Maturity: Understanding the Spirit and Value of Money in Your Life
by George Kinder
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars this book will change your life, 14 Dec. 2011
typically if you walk into any financial advisor's office, you'll be given some drab formula about spreading your assets between property, equities and bonds etc

however, very few actually take the time to take a detailed perspective on the individual, their aspirations, their background etc

It's only obvious that if someone of a different sex to me, with completely different interests and life aspirations would require a completely different approach to their relationship with their wealth versus myself even if we were the same age: and this is where the typical financial advisor falls down bad

this book is a very helpful tool, taking a holistic approach on how one should direct their financial affairs - an integration of wisdom based on self-knowledge, practical financial advice, common sense and giving empowerment to the user to drive towards fulfilment of their ambitions

What's interesting is that this book was written for the financial advisory community and ended up a bestseller for the layperson - that's how good it is.

Buy it, it will improve your life, I promise

3.0 out of 5 stars great looking but some faults sadly, 12 Dec. 2011
Sad thing is that I'm too busy to send this back to the retailer/manufacturer or whoever is responsible

my remote control only works sporadically - which is a real pain when you want to make the most of the music features here

the digital clock doesn't work at all - not the end of the world but a shame really

what more can I say - looked good, sounded good, sounds wonderful, but the supposed included features which altho not vital, are redundant

wish they would sort out this product failure before they shipped these out for xmas etc

A Week in December
A Week in December
by Sebastian Faulks
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars a great depiction of the times we are in, 18 Aug. 2010
This review is from: A Week in December (Paperback)
I reviewed the hardback and then found the soft cover with many more comments and noticed that quite a few were barbed

made me wonder, how come I enjoyed this book so much and yet others were so against the idea? maybe there are those among us that are embarrassed at our pretensions for 4x4 SUV driving in the city, our interest in reality TV shows, our fascination with hedge funds and overpaid bankers, etc etc

perhaps Faulks has managed to highlight character traits that we are all guilty of, secretly ashamed of, but happy to perpetuate until we get caught out...

this is an excellent read, and we should all take note of just how far London society has 'progressed'.
