This review is from: Joyeux Noel [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
A must watch. "Control freak" military leaders tried to stop this from happening but deep down we're all humans with labels tagged on us. I wish this would become required watching for schools in the West and East.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reading this will be a wake up call, 22 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Reading this book is like a wake up call in my easy existence were freedom of speech is taken for granted. I would say you have to have a thick skin to read the torture that this young man went through. It's like another world but I tried to convince myself that it doesn't exist.
Some parts of the book are quite surprising like his reason for leaving North Korea was purely based on food and his craving to eat meat.
This is a story of a survivor, a guy that survived against all odds.
Places like North Korea and Eritrea are good examples of totalitarian states and this will open people's eyes to what goes on.
Initially I was skeptical because of the brutality but then I ask myself why would North Korea want to spread a message like this.

How Not to be Wrong: The Hidden Maths of Everyday Life
by Jordan Ellenberg
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars If you want a good grasp of maths, 22 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant, absolutely brilliant. Sometimes it can be tough going but it's well worth it. Even while I'm writing this review I want to read it again.
This book seems to be a huge hit in the UK and if it lights a fire inside people for maths then Jordan would of done his job.

When I read the number of maths contributers to this book I just had to buy it and it didn't disappoint. It covers maths from all angles from understanding maths anxieties and why they develop to bridges, string art and bezier curves.


Chasing Justice: My Story of Freeing Myself After Two Decades on Death Row for a Crime I Didn't Commit
Chasing Justice: My Story of Freeing Myself After Two Decades on Death Row for a Crime I Didn't Commit
by Kerry Max Cook
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars A lesson in confirmation bias and cognitive dissonance, 22 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I tried to read this with an open mind and not get swayed emotionally but when reading the evidence, it's hard not to come down on the side of Kerry Cook. In a strange way this book gives you a glimpse into cognitive dissonance and confirmation bias and how we can delude ourselves into thinking we're right. Reading this isa wake up call not just to the American justice system but justice systems the world over. LET'S NOT FALL INTO THE TRAP THAT IT'S ONLY AMERICA WHICH WRONGFULLY CONVICT THE INNOCENT.
After reading this book it gave me a better appreciation for what the Innocence Project do. They truly are a great organisation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Challenging, 21 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of the best books I've read in a long time.
It's not one of these type of ultra positive books that leads you on to part with your money. Carol Dweck's book is grounded in solid psychology and insightful research. This book comes as a challenge which will leave you wanting to develop the growth mindset though you might have the typical British criticism to anything like this. Even Bill Gates has got this book down in his top five of 2015.
