4.0 out of 5 stars Besides being useful about the air purification, also great introduction to botany, 29 May 2015
‘Air Purifiers Exposed’ written by Julian Cox succeeds, in a well-made manner, to present many useful advices about the purifying systems and their use in our homes – somehow demystifying the whole thing.

Julian Cox is a certified health coach that because of neurological injury received while serving in Iraq became passionate about the health issues. Given his successes fighting own chronic condition without the use of drugs, Cox decided to help other people using his rich experience. The side-effect of his self-help treatment was learning about many unconventional ways how we can help our lives to become healthier, even in terms of some things that the industry is not very happy to discuss.

Cox emphasizes on the very beginning the purpose of his book – „…will open your eyes to the facts about purifiers. It will teach you about real air purification and how to obtain it for yourself and your family… How air purifiers stack up to the true and most powerful heavyweights of the industry that cannot be patented… Finding out why many of the claims related to air purifiers are quite misleading, why this matters, and what you can do about it… Learning the most powerful way to create a true environmental defensive perimeter in your home or office that will not only improve health for you and your loved ones or employees, but also make breathing a lot easier”

He continues with some figures that shows why the market for air purifiers is so heavily advertised, promising to people that just by using these devices they will be able to help themselves or their families.

Cox will provide suggestions why to choose the different road – dedicating the pages of his book for delivery of information and education how the air can be purified in a more natural way and with much lower cost.

He decided to split his 110 pages long book into 6 shorter chapters, each of them discussing one of the aspects of air purification subject, providing the insightful info and tips that are going to inspire reader.

Therefore, ‘Air Purifiers Exposed’ besides being an easy-to-read booklet full of useful information about the air purification, because of the nice photographs taken by Eleny Cox and numerous information about the plants, is also a simple, yet effective introduction in botany topic.

I was given a copy of this book by the author for the purpose of unbiased review, while all the presented information is based on my impressions.

4.0 out of 5 stars Book full of life optimism, 29 May 2015
‘A Nation for Refugees!’ written by Tim I. Gurung is the another novel I read from this author; though being already familiar with his motives and the way author sets the scene, every time Gurung manages to deliver his profound topics in a different and appealing manner.

Tim I. Gurung is certainly a man with an interesting biography – a middle-aged man from Nepal that for three decades lives in Hong Kong, Gurung started writing when he was much younger, made a break and continued to do that after many years had passed, after being retired from the military service. These days, besides writing, Gurung is also running the charity in which all proceeds from the sale of his books will go - finally making this man happy because he does what he enjoys.

In this book the author introduces us to Nata who from the very childhood wanted to work for those that were not lucky enough to live among their own people. After school, he will join one NGO trying to do what he sees as noble profession, but because of some conflicts and different views compared to his superiors, Nata is going to quit his job.

But then he will think of another idea – opening a café that will eventually change Nata’s life, but also gave him the opportunity to help the people…

‘A Nation for Refugees!’ is a book not thick in scope, but given the style and the story author introduced on its pages could be equally easy to read if twice that big. The reader is going to enjoy the story about the man who eventually fulfills his dreams, though the path towards the goal will be a bit different than he thought.

Though on purpose I don’t want to disclose the story outcome, this is definitely a book full of life optimism and because of the good feelings it will bring into the life of many readers I can recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A real rollercoaster, 29 May 2015
'Savior', written by A. King Bradley, is the first installment in author’s series that bears the same name – a real rollercoaster story that introduces reader to an appealing leading character that lives within the story made of fantasy, cyberpunk and science fiction elements.

The main character, a kid named Adam, who because of some issues from the past has very limited number of friends, is often the victim of bullying and violence from his high school classmates. Though the horrible memories haunt him from the past, Adam is going to find out that he is more than just an ordinary kid, discovering some extraordinary powers within him.

That would mark the beginning of story in which Adam needs to choose how he is going to use his newly found powers – fighting against the people from his past or trying to save the whole world, given the conflict that threaten to destroy everything…

A. King Bradley with his novel ‘Savior’ manages to open in a great style new series characterized by the great pace - starting with the good introduction that will draw the reader completely into the story and then through lot of action, twists and turns leads to the outcome that sets the scene for the future sequels to come.

Also, the nice thing that can be found within is the music – yes, actually the book has a very own soundtrack that can be listen in the pauses between the readings, or in same time if you are able to concentrate on both things in same time.

Overall, A. King Bradley with ' Savior' managed to write very good novel for young adults and adults in love with SF and fantasy that managed to set the foundation for the continuation of this thrilling ride – hopefully, lasting for a long time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple but wise approach in solving everyday problems, 28 May 2015
In last couple of months lot of self-help books were in my hands, many of them coming from the self-published authors that politely ask me to read their books, while the other part were those “more serious” books in terms of their budget and overall money invested in their production and promotion.

‘Your Heart & Mind’ certainly belongs to the first group, this self-help book written by C.J. Maritz though not thick in scope is actually the good work that introduces reader to some good principles that will be helpful for improving your life in general, making positive changes and overcoming the obstacles.

C.J. Maritz from South Africa is man that has interests in self-understanding, personal transformation and development, motivation, inspiration and in general the dynamics of life. Therefore it’s no wonder that he created work like this, sharing the advices that can be introduced to everyday life, helping one to become successful and happier with own life.

The book is divided into eleven chapters, each of them discussing particular core aspect of the advices the author provided, sharing the real-life examples and actions that needs to be taken in order to help one feel better:
1. Reality
2. Integrity
3. Character
4. Originality
5. Freedom
6. Knowledge
7. Consciousness
8. Conscience
9. Personal growth
10. Progression
11. Better state
From the title of particular chapters, it is evident what the subjects of C.J. Maritz book are and as whole the author manages to provide the content that can certainly be helpful to make one’s life better.

Of course, taking into the consideration how many self-help titles are on market and appear every day, it’s not possible to distinguish the level of helpfulness for each of them; however, ‘Your Heart & Mind’ certainly manages to present the simple but wise approach in solving everyday problems and reaching the better attitude towards your own life.

Given the aforementioned, together with the style of author that made this book an educating and accessible read, overall ‘Your Heart & Mind’ is an easy to read self-help book that can be recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Parents are always there and take care of their children, 28 May 2015
‘Rory the Dinosaur: Me and My Dad’ made by Liz Climo is nicely made book for the youngest readers that speaks about the parental care, about keeping the children safe even when they are not aware of it.

The young reader will be introduced to Rory, the young dinosaur who lives on an island with his Dad. Rory has so much energy and whole day he is doing the countless activities, play and has lot of fun.

But Rory’s Dad is also great companion, he takes Rory all around – fishing and looking for seashells or teaching Rory how nice is to read. But when Rory’s Dad will want a few minutes for himself, Rory will go alone for the adventures. And though Rory will think that he is all alone, his Dad will always be somewhere near taking care of his beloved son…

‘Rory the Dinosaur’ is a very good book for 3-4 years old children to emphasize them the importance of parental love and care, while providing easy-to-read story filled with simple but entertaining illustrations.

There is not too much text on each spread, up to two short sentences, what also makes this book interesting given that even the youngest readers will easily keep the attention for its 40 pages.

Speaking about the illustrations, Liz Climo chose to use the digital illustrations –simple, with cleans lines and bold colors, without too much details that is suitable for the audience this book is intended for.

The lesson this picture book brought is very nice and in same time comforting for the children - parents are always there and take care of their children to be safe, even if their kids are not aware of them. Therefore, with ‘‘Rory the Dinosaur: Me and My Dad’ the author Liz Climo made warm, emotional and educational book that can be both recommended for its child-friendly theme and artwork.

4.0 out of 5 stars The lessons life teaches us and the consequences the adversity leaves on us, 28 May 2015
‘A Tree Called Tenalpa’ written by Tim I. Gurung is the fourth novel I received and read from this author; given I am already quite familiar with his style, it’s still interesting how he manages to surprise with the another story completely different in subject, but equally profound and nicely written. The same observation I wrote for ‘Five Steps’ I can repeat here - it seems that this story, at least partly, is based on the autobiographical elements.

Tim I. Gurung is certainly a man that draws attention with his biography – now a man in his golden years, originally from Nepal, who for three decades lived in Hong Kong. Gurung started writing when he was much younger, made a pause in his writing and then continued to write after many years had passed, when he retired from the military service. These days, besides writing, Gurung is also taking care of the charity in which all the proceeds from the sale of his books are going - making Tim I. Gurung happy because finally being able to work on something he enjoys.

This novel introduces reader to the six different persons that are leaving their home country in pursuit of happiness and better life. The life will not be easy for any of those six portrayed characters, just as life usually is.

In the end, they all six are going to come back home, full of wisdom that was acquired on the road of life they’ve been travelling…

Compared to other Gurung’s novels I read before, this one comes with a bit larger scope, but manages to intrigue reader and keeps one interested. The lessons that life teaches and the consequences that the adversity leaves on us are themes that can be found in many books, but the way this author conveyed his story, bringing a bit of Eastern motifs, makes his story as something fresh, at least in the eyes of someone who does not live in that environment.

Therefore, maybe not too original when it comes to its subject, but interesting and well-made when it comes to the story delivery, ‘A Tree Called Tenalpa’ novel manages to keep you interested until the very last of its pages.

I was given a copy of this book by the author for the purpose of unbiased review, while all the presented information is based on my impressions.

3.0 out of 5 stars Thrilling ride through the unknown, 27 May 2015
This review is from: Armageddon's Arc (Kindle Edition)
‘Armageddon's Arc’ written by Victor Baptiste is a book not thick in its scope, but work that certainly draws attention with the unusual combination of motives and author’s style – the result is thrilling ride through the unknown that lasts short, but will keep reader entertained all the time.

In the center of the story is not the action or narrative in usually encountered forms; actually the whole story is told as a dialogue between a demon and a priest.

With a few unexpected twists and turns, their conversation is going to take the two of them, with the reader along, in a direction that is not expected…

Though it’s matter of personal taste, in my opinion with ‘Armageddon's Arc’ Victor Baptiste managed to create a completely different experience, an appealing and intriguing title that is hard to be retold without revealing the details and spoil the fun.

Baptiste certainly manages to surprise the reader in few occasions that is a success taking into consideration his book has only 70 pages. On the other hand I would say this is a typical self-published endeavor that would certainly benefit from the additional editing.

Therefore, the idea is certainly commendable, while the realization is something that I would recommend a bit more work.

4.0 out of 5 stars An adequate story for the summer, 27 May 2015
‘Llama Llama Sand and Sun’ written and illustrated by Anna Dewdney is the latest installment in a long lasting series that has Llama Llama character as the main hero – this time bringing the adequate story for this time of year, Llama’s going to the beach.

Llama Llama loves to spend time on the beach, playing on the sand, with the ball or simply enjoying the sun. Therefore the youngest children are invited to join, using the interactive elements that can be found on the pages of this book.

Anna Dewdney for this newest sequel did not choose any particular theme, instead offering a suitable story for the summer that is becoming nearer each day. Because of that reason, on the book pages there are many things children can do given this book is part of ‘A Touch & Feel book’ series that offers interactive experience.

Therefore if you consider your child a Llama Llama fan, she or he will not be disappointed, though for those for the first time becoming aware of this charming character there are some other titles from the series that can be more recommended, mainly for the lesson they brought.

However, for having fun in the summer days on the beach I am sure that many children will enjoy these new adventures of Llama Llama, both because of the simple story and usual high quality of Dewdney's oil paint artwork.

4.0 out of 5 stars Combines the elements of fantasy and SF in a unique way, 27 May 2015
'Skyeater' written by J. Alex McCarthy is the first installment in author’s future series ‘In a Universe Without Stars’ that brings an interesting story combining the elements of fantasy and science fiction in a unique way.

The main character, a guy named Cole, is going to experience a serious car accident, consequently becoming a disabled person - an invalid. Given how fanatic he was before about the exercise, this new situation will completely destroy his life and Cole is going to lose his will for living.

He will try suicide with the pills, but instead killing himself Cole will wake up completely changed, strong and even with some new abilities that can hardly be called normal.

While seeking for an explanation, Cole will become part of the impossible scenario that could mean the end of whole human race - an alien invasion. Using his new powers, Cole is going to try preventing this worst threat for planet Earth but will realize that actually he is only a figure in the game that is so huge and difficult to fully understand…

J. Alex McCarthy wrote a novel with lot of action, violence and blood – a story that uses a motive of great accidental hero and the many times used motive of alien invasion this time delivered in a bit different manner. As aforementioned, in his descriptions the author is fully explicit therefore the reader can expect graphic display of violence behavior and lot of bloody scenes.

Though in the many ways is obvious 'Skyeater' is self-published novel, I will not be too critical because this is far from what is often found in a self-published industry. Yet, in good faith I can advise author to pay attention in the following extensions on the plot continuity - because of many action scenes sometimes can be hard to follow the overall story.

I would say 3 and half stars but because of some good story twists let’s call it four.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great gaming gadget for PC, Mac and Xbox, 24 May 2015
The Turtle Beach X12 headphones with microphone are nicely designed gaming gadget for PC, Mac and Xbox that fits great to the listener ears, they are made of quality material and seem durable. The headphones have frequency response from 20Hz to 20KHzfeature and don’t require batteries.

Also, the nice feature is the ability to plug the headset directly into the TV if you have standard audio outputs.

The headphones come in package box that includes only the headphones and simple but concisely written user guide. The package was not big but most importantly manages to protect its content well from the possible damage during transport. I didn’t have any problems connecting these headphones to any device I tried so far, including even PS3.

Speaking about the delivered sound quality I was, in short, impressed with the results during the extensive testing I performed; as usually I tried not only the games, but also some classical music and the sound is clean, both bass and middle tones are well-delivered. X12 headphones also provide complete protection from the outside sounds, therefore could be used as protection in loud environments.

Therefore, The Turtle Beach X12 headphones with microphone are well-made product that seems durable, the good gaming headphones that would be convenient and pleasant to wear, offering the great quality of sound. Because of their durability and quality of sound these headphones could be seen as an excellent choice for a pair of gaming headphones. Their price certainly adds to their value and also can be seen as the additional recommendation for its purchase.

I received a sample of the Turtle Beach X12 with microphone for the purpose of testing and unbiased review, while all the presented information is based on my impressions.
