5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent addition to the series, 16 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is another wonderful addition to this series and I'm really enjoying the layout and ease at which they can be read. Naturally I would love all of them to be a bit longer but then I'd also like more of them generally. What you do get though is top notch and highly recommended for anyone looking to improve their German without much effort.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent tool for Beginning learner, 10 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a fantastic method for learning German. The level in my opinion would suit those who have mastered the basics well enough to give reading a full book a go. For me as an intermediate learner I found it fantastic for fluid reading and it allowed me to effortlessly pick up new vocabulary.

The style of writing is easy to read, and the stories themselves are funny and based in real world situations which make them perfect for learning REAL world vocabulary that you might actually use.

Hats off to the author and I hope more and more of these will be published including those for intermediate learners.

5.0 out of 5 stars The solution to most Hair and Skin ailments, for me its been a Godsend., 23 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Simply fantastic. I've been suffering from dry skin, itchy scalp and dandruff for a year now and had tried just about everything to get rid of it. As I started to look into more Natural solutions to such things (as opposed to the chemical rubbish often thrown at you by doctors) I came across this product and was blown away by how effective it is. I put this down to the fact the company clearly tries to use 100% natural ingredients with no dangerous chemicals or preservatives. This seems to have 'cured' my dandruff and even when I don't use the product for days, my dry skin does not return. I have ordered plenty more and this may just be one of them products that I will end up using 'for life'. It really has been that effective.

In order to help other people avoid the annoying confusion and symptoms I went through last year with my hair, I would simply encourage people to follow these three rules.
1.) Avoid Un-natural Chemicals as much as possible, they are likely the cause of many of your skin and hair ailments.
2.) Don't over-wash, this is also un-natural and your skin and hair loses moisture too much.
3.) Three ingredients that you rarely can go wrong with when seeking better skin and hair are, Aloe Vera, Tea Tree Oil and Coconut Oil. Opt for products that contain one or all of the above and in high quantity (just because something claims to contain aloe vera does not mean there is actually anywhere near a high enough amount in the product to actually work on your hair and skin).

I would also highly recommend giving the conditioner a try, as it truly seems to complement the Shampoo brilliantly (in my opinion the Shampoo seems to work wonders on the scalp, while the conditioner works on the Hair follicles themselves).

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful, but not for its primary purpose., 23 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The product is very firm and absolutely great for sitting up in bed as a reading aid, however it is not large enough for its primary purpose and I find myself slipping down and off it during the night. I purchased it after being told it is useful for those suffering from Acid Reflux and can help prop you up during the night. Unfortunately due to its very solid nature and small size, I found it acts pretty much like any other pillow and merely elevates ones head slightly more than usual. For this reason I can't recommend it for those suffering from Reflux (or those who are over 5ft 10) but as a reading aid when propped up the other way, it has been very useful and thus the 3 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unmatched by any Hair Product I've ever used!, 19 July 2015
I suffered from severe dandruff and flaky scalp and tried absolutely everything with very little luck. I purchased both this, and its sister product the shampoo, and was blown away by the results after just two washes. Put quite simply, I no longer have dandruff at all, I can even go days without washing my hair with very little evidence of any return of dandruff or dry skin.

After doing some research I discovered that one of the main reasons for this products success is because it contains little to no harsh chemicals (depending on which research you are reading), whilst many of the other products I had tried contained a whole host of things that were likely the CAUSE of dry skin as opposed to the solution.

My humble opinion, the only thing better than this would be growing the ingredients yourself in your garden and putting them directly on your head. But for everyone else, I have found this product is the very best there is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Toothpaste would highly recommend., 13 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fantastic toothpaste completely free of nasty ingredients and chemicals. It takes some time to adjust to the taste but once you do you realize just how well this cleans. I combine this with another Jason Mouthwash and the two seem to go together fantastically.

I also feel it important to note that I find myself scrubbing longer with this purely because it seems to foam slightly less than 'normal' paste.

Would highly recommend, along with many other Jason products, this seems to be far less inclusive of 'nasties' and for more inclusive of 'goodies'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pricey but effective., 13 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are absolutely fantastic if you have ACID reflux/IBS and the mixture of Ginger with blueberry seems to allow the pastilles to act incredibly quickly. My only issue is the price, which I feel is far too high. Most will use double the recommended dosage for them and so they can at times be fully used within mere days which means the cost per month is insanely high.

Its worth looking into how to make your own ginger pastilles or just finding meals that include ginger and turmeric for easing any symptoms you might have.

I would recommend having at least one bottle of these around though in case you need an emergency dose of ginger to settle you down.

Finally, a friend pointed out that these are also helping her greatly with nausea and anxiety, so maybe worth at least a try?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Value, much better than stock., 20 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I used this after removing the stock coolant that came with my 4790k and was blown away by confirming that I knocked off 5 degrees from my cpu temps when overlocked to 4.8ghz. This is great value for money and I would not hesitate to use it again, especially over stock coolant. Combined with some liquid cooling in the form of the h110gt i managed to maintain a barmy 4.9ghz stable on the cpu all the while kept cool as a cucumber.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Value and Top of the Line performance, 20 April 2015
This is a superb and powerful graphics card that I've had the chance to test on a large variety of games and under different circumstances with other applications. It performs admirably, and more than that, it performs in the top 5% of all gtx 980's and many have found it to be the Number 1 Overclocker of all Gtx 980's alongside the asus Strixxx and similar cards. The greatest thing here is the price, which is normally cheaper than the majority of other cards of this spec, which is some achievement given the aforementioned performance ratings.

Some quick stats...
Battlefield 4 never dipped below 60fps ever with all settings on max (I had vsync set to on but without, average fps was between 80-120fps)

Crysis 3 becomes 60fps playable at 1080p with no dips whatsoever.

No other game has even provided a challenge at 1080p.

This is also a great card for things like modded Skyrim and Gta V which use all of its 4gb RAM but are kept in check by the blazing speed at which this card is able to render new frames. (Meaning any game with decent memory optimization will use that 4gb entirely efficiently as opposed to it being a limitation).

Why 4 stars?
The packaging the card came in was damaged from the inside in a way suggesting only the manufacturer itself could not have packed it correctly. Along with the connector being a MINI-HDMI which is not that great an issue but some may not like it.

Lastly, the overclocking potential of this card is enormous which makes it very useful for future proofing (15% performance increase from mine and I have not tried to push it any further).

In a word, brilliant. And I would now recommend this brand Palit as being one of both excellent value for money and VERY top of the line performance.

Stand by Your Manhood: A Game-changer for Modern Men
Stand by Your Manhood: A Game-changer for Modern Men

5.0 out of 5 stars A book mankind needs almost as much as it needs oxygen right now!, 18 April 2015
One of the very best books I have ever read, and perhaps one of the most needed in this century. Peter Lloyd eloquently explains why Men are not the dumb animal-like devils we are made out to be by modern feminism and the mainstream media. This book should be required reading for every boy (and girl) on earth to help them towards an understanding that in fact, men DO have feelings too, and men CAN be oppressed, and abused, but the difference is, when such things happen to men, they are told they are weak or sexist for even daring to speak out loud about such issues.

I would like to finish this review with a plea, to any mothers and fathers out there who have (or are planning to have) sons, please help this book get the recognition it deserves by encouraging others to read it. It REALLY is about helping the future of men (and subsequently women), and as anyone can see, if things continue as they are, will you be able to explain to your son why he is so much more likely to kill himself than your daughter, or so much more likely to not get good grades in school, or how about tell him that the research into big killer diseases is mainly for his sister and not him? (See ANY statistics on research funding for womens diseases vs mens). How about the fact that even for pointing any of this out, he might get called sexist and bigoted? Do we really want this kind of world for boys to grow up in and eventually become men?

Should we help women achieve equality where they don't have it? Certainly, that is beyond doubt. But this should NEVER come at the cost of forsaking boys. It will only lead to the downfall of both in the end if it is not put right, so do the world a favor and buy this book, then buy it again and give a copy to your son, or your dad, or your dads mate, and of course to any loving women who are interested in TRUE equality of the sexes.
