5.0 out of 5 stars Self-Hypnosis: The Complete Guide to Better Health and Self-change, 5 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I spent some time reading about self-hypnosis online and checking out recommendations for a comprehensive, user-friendly book to buy before purchasing this book and I have not been disappointed.

The first half explains in detail the concept of self-hypnosis and the various ways to enter a trance state with clear instructions and lots of helpful explanations of and comparisons between the different methods. The second half is broken down into chapters that deal with specific areas such as: increasing confidence, stopping smoking etc. My reason for wanting to learn about self-hypnosis was to use it as a method of pain relief for chronic pain and I have already begun to notice improvement in my own situation as a result of putting into practise the methods recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Norwegian knitting, 25 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The author explains the techniques of Norwegian knitting very clearly and there is a lot of useful information that can be applied to knitting in general eg. knitting in the round, finishing techniques. She includes patterns for adults and children and there are lots of colour photographs. I doubt you would find a better book about this style of knitting.


Power Cables: The Ultimate Guide to Knitting Inventive Cables
Power Cables: The Ultimate Guide to Knitting Inventive Cables
by Lily Chin
Edition: Paperback
Price: £16.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Power cables, 25 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Beautifully presented book. Lots of coloured photographs and a good section at the front explaining the principles of cabling. The author has developed her own way of cabling that enables a reversible 'fabric' to be produced.It may be some years before I get my head round the complicated stuff but I shall enjoy trying.
