5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic service, 21 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great design and a good price but after a while I had an issue with the mat. I contacted doormatsonline who dealt with my concern efficiently, effectively, promptly and very pleasantly. I have never received such excellent service. I cannot recommend doormatsonline highly enough.

Still perpetuates the myth that to lose weight we need to avoid foods. Eg thin people avoid these foods. This is untrue. They just eat less of them, or balance their intake. This will not help people to maintain weight loss ( unless they are into a life of denial) or contribute to their having a healthy relationship with food. I would avoid as there are many more helpful books written to help people struggling with overeating.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent read, 31 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Spot of Bother (Kindle Edition)
This well told tale of a family struggling to come to terms with the passage of time and their complicated relationships is both humorous and moving. The shifting narrative viewpoints gives this book perspectives with which the reader can easily identify. It is a long time since I have laughed out loud when reading a book. A thoroughly enjoyable read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A tale for our time, 5 Dec. 2011
A small book with a big heart full of warmth an humour. With the Olympics on the horizon this little whimsical story will touch a chord with all readers. We are drawn into what it means to strive and become a champion not only for our hero, Harry, but for his supporters. And along the way we also learn a lot about the art of pole vaulting. A carefully and lovingly produced book which is finely illustrated. A deceptively simple story which packs a 'big-punch.' Perfect aperitif for the Olympic year!


Mortal Questions (Canto)
Mortal Questions (Canto)

5.0 out of 5 stars Read it!, 15 Nov. 2001
This is an eminently readable collection of Nagel's essays, on an eclectic mix of topics.
The book opens with 'Death', which seems to me to be an important piece on a much neglected subject, moving through 'The Absurd' (an analytic look at existentialism), Nagel goes on to discuss Equality, and masterfully reveals the foibles of much ethical theory in 'the fragmentation of value'. The final piece, 'what is it like to be a bat' is a landmark paper in philosophy of mind.
If philosophy books are rated on the amount of truth they contain, then this one rates very highly. Thoroughly recommended.
