5.0 out of 5 stars Probably the best cat-themed CD release of the year, 4 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Probably the best cat-themed CD release of the year. I like cats and Mark Steyn, so I'm really pleased with it. Steyn's voice is not in the Michael Bublé league, but his enthusiasm and humour make it work.

From the very beginning of the opening sequence with its chilling music by T-Bone Burnett, this dark thriller provides a very satisfying ride.

4.0 out of 5 stars A sweet and funny film, 13 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pride (Amazon Video)
A sweet and funny film, a bit simplistic in its left-wing politics. But enjoyable nevertheless. Its depiction of a Welsh mining village lacks depth and understanding, accents are all over he place, but Bill Nighy is great with a moving performance (against type) as an elderly Welsh ex-miner.

This review is from: Quantum Light Breath (Audio CD)
Quantum Light Breath therapy was recommended to me for getting rid of some bad and painful memories. It is a very powerful meditation that enables you to release things that are bothering you. It worked brilliantly for me, and I am very grateful for discovering this therapy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Oh dear., 1 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Distant Intimacy (Kindle Edition)
I was looking forward to this book. The idea seemed intriguing. Two distinguished literary men (one British, one American)discussing ideas and books by regular emails (they have never met or even spoken on the telephone). Unfortunately it's a dreadful book, with lots of recycled old jokes and very poor wordplay and puns. I have no idea why they thought it good enough to publish as a book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful book on immigration, 1 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
People are concerned about immigration and worried that there simply might be too many immigrants. It is not an easy subject to talk about. There is a strong tendency to label anyone who raises the issue of immigration, immigrants and the impact they have on Britain as a racist - so few people are willing to take an honest look at the question. David Goodhart, who describes himself as coming from the Left, has been brave enough in recent years to investigate immigration and publish articles and now this book. One of the central themes is the impact immigration may have on the future of the welfare state. There is evidence that having a welfare state depends on a solidarity of feeling - that is, that the more homogeneous a population is (think of 1960s Sweden) the more people are willing to fund welfare programmes to help the less fortunate. Where a society includes quite large percentages of foreign-born people (such as the USA for much of its history), there is a tendency towards greater indivualism and less support for welfare policies.
Goodhart has read a great deal on the subject and has also travelled widely in Britain to talk to immigrants themselves. His results are fascinating - the relative successes and failures of immigrants from different ethnicities and religions, for example, and the impact of cousin marriage amongst those of Pakistani origin in the north of England. Also, the financial impact on the country's finances - he finds that immigration has a neutral impact at best on the country's prosperity (although employers love immigration - they don't have to finance all those pesky training programmes and instead can get educated, motivated and ready-trained immigrants). He is strongly anti-racist but is critical of much of the "anti-racist" Left. The Left has failed to acknowledge the progress made in combatting racism in the last few decades and still acts as though Britain was a thoroughly racist country in which the colour bar still operates.
In recent years the number of immigrants has ballooned and the issue will remain a hot potato for years to come. This is a very useful book on the subject and should be read by all who are concerned about the massive changes brought about by immigration.

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful book on the Radical/Marxist mindset, 8 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very American book - apart from Christopher Hitchens, most of the radicals of David Horowitz's book will be unknown to readers outside the USA. Even so it makes fascinating reading, and I'm sure all western countries have their equivalents. The book struck a chord with me because as a teenager I was active in left-wing and Marxist political activism. I came to my senses by realising the enormity of the crimes committed by Communist governments and dictators, the importance of individual liberty and the impossibility of trying to create heaven on earth by punitive measures. It is fascinating to read about how many influential academics and intellectuals are still willing to justify the most evil crimes in history.
Today there is a grand alliance between Marxists and other "Radicals" with extremist Muslim groups. This is an intriguing development - people who claim to be "progressives" allied with the most reactionary, far-right forces in the world. The common denominator is their anti-Americanism, and to some extent this book helps to explain this. However I can't help thinking that Marxists and "Radicals" are simply in love with violent dictatorship in general.

I like the quality of light from this bulb - it is much better than any other low energy bulb I have previously used. It is also comfortable to read with.
