1.0 out of 5 stars Don't Buy This Book in Kindle Format, 10 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This Kindle format version is really not fit for purpose. Almost every page contains typographical errors or formatting errors. To be charged money for such a publication is bad. It is a shame as the content is excellent. I am plodding my way through the book regardless of the multitude of errors. But surely someone should be checking the quality of e books in Kindle format? Come on Amazon - do something about it! And how about a refund? I have even bothered to make a lot of corrections. It says "A customer service representative will look into it"!!

Wonderful protective cover. Fits my Samsung phone really well and on the couple of occasions I clumsily dropped my phone outdoors onto pavement - was glad that this cover is robust. Great value product.

A wonderful read - flows along beautifully. The inter-weaving of the narrative timeline is so seamless. A great book - I thoroughly enjoyed it - from beginning to end.

2.0 out of 5 stars Unimpressed - not really fit for purpose to move a sofa of medium weight, 21 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These seemed to work for a while, but rapidly were not fit for the purpose. I bought them for a new sofa, which is moderately heavy. The foam wears down fairly soon after some use. When pushing the sofa very carefully, the slider just slips off. If you are not very careful, the thin white plastic on which the foam circle is stuck, breaks. This is what happened this morning when I used a completely unused slider out of my pack of 4. It slipped off and got chipped. I am not very impressed. I would rather pay more for a better quality fit for purpose furniture slider.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's a good product, but our cat won't use it, 7 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's a good product, but our cat won't use it! I read somewhere that only cats who are brought up as kittens/ young cats to use these kind of scratchers will do so. However, placing it by our new sofa where she used to scratch the old one - seems to act as a bit of a deterrent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helen Macdonald writes so brilliantly and it is so personal a story, 7 Jan. 2015

This review is from: H is for Hawk (Kindle Edition)
Superb book. Very unusual and gripping. The use of the TH White "The Goshawk" gives such an insight into these magnificent birds of prey. Helen Macdonald writes so brilliantly and it is so personal a story. Highly imaginative and rings true. She is a gifted writer with a well honed skill.

1.0 out of 5 stars Book full of flaws, 17 Sept. 2012
This review is from: Alexander Technique (Hardcover)
As students in training years ago we had to compare this book (along with others by other authors) to what FM Alexander wrote about his Technique. I found many flaws and errors of understanding and places where the author contradicts herself. Now as an experienced teacher of the Alexander Technique I judge this book to be a very poor one. Liz Hodgkinson describes the Alexander Technique as "primarily a physical therapy which instead of working on the mind, works on the body."

FMA describes the Alexander Technique in "Man's Supreme Inheritance" as a practical tried and tested psycho-therapy which will in time supersede the restricted methods of somato-therapy ie body therapy. He said the exact opposite to what the author suggests. She also describes it as posture therapy rather than a system of learning based on the principle of psycho-physical unity.
Hodginson writes that through concentrating on the body and forgetting about the mind, we can rid ourselves of negative attitudes. So the author suggests that it is some sort of miracle cure for negative attitudes that requires no change of point of view.

This is deeply flawed book and mis-represents the Alexander Technique. I believe that the author was a journalist who had a few Alexander lessons. It's clear from the book that she didn't have anything other than a superficial grasp. The book is just plain wrong in so many places. There are now so many far better written and less misleading books. The best are written by Alexander teachers. This book is probably one to avoid unless you want to read some of the wrong interpretations of the Alexander Technique! Alexander's clearest definition of the Alexander Technique is "My technique is based on the inhibition of undesirable unwanted responses to stimuli, and hence it is primarily a technique for the development of the control of human behaviour". Does this sound like a posture therapy?
