Happy Pet RSPCA Rope Ball Dog Toy
Happy Pet RSPCA Rope Ball Dog Toy

5.0 out of 5 stars A toy my dog can play with but not chew to bits, 23 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We have tried many "tough" toys for our one year old labradoodle, and she destorys most of them in short order.

This rope ball is brilliant, it's a great toy to roll around and chew, but storng enough to withstand those jaws. Not too expensive either!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best insights of some of the best thinkers in the business world and do a good deed at the same time!, 23 April 2012

This review is from: End Malaria (Kindle Edition)
End Malaria

Michael Bungay Stanier has collected together works of some great thinkers in the 21st Century business world in his book End Malalaria. If you want a window on the ideas of Tony Schwartz, Brene Brown, or Tom Peters to name just a few then you will find their contributions here.

The book is organised into useful sections: Tap Your Strengths, Create Freedom, Love & Be Kind, Disrupt Normal, Take Small Steps, Embrace Systems, Get Physical and Collaborate. You will not be disappointed whether you are likely to read the seminal works of these authors or you are a "dip and pick" style reader, there is something new and refreshing about these articles.

Also every penny earned in sales of this book contribute to Michael's goal to End Malaria.

How could you do better?

This wooden jigsaw is beautifully cut, and a joy to complete, the whimsies make it very special. Althought not many pieces, there is still a challenge in completing the puzzle.

This review is from: I'm New Here (Audio CD)
This is a fantastic piece of music, I have been an admirer of Gill Scott Heron since he produced The Revolution Will Not Be Televised. I'm New Here has beautiful, challenging, heartfelt lyrics and music, this is a must have disc, which I am listening to again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A magical story, beautifully written, 30 May 2011
This review is from: The German Boy (Paperback)
The German Boy tells the stories of kith and kin, the connections, dislocations, choices and unforseen consequences of lives lived in an era punctuated by world war.

Wastvedt captures the minutiae of people's ordinary worlds: the making of a hearty supper, the feeling of starvation, a devastated city, the beauty of a landscape. This is interwoven with the experiences of a people who seem to be caught up in a mystery, where significant events are half known, sometimes spoken about, or perhaps kept secret.

There are some beautiful descriptive passages in the book:

"The sand is full of colours. Elisabeth digs her fingers down and scoops a cool damp handful. She pokes through the grains and they're spangled black and purple, white and pink. The mystery is there's no yellow although the beach that stretches in both directions is the colour of straw."

I read slowly, drinking in all the wonderful imagery that must have been so carefully crafted, and yet all through the book I was wanting to go forward to discover how Wastvedt woudl draw this complex web to a conclusion. I was not disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful read, 2 Jan. 2011
This review is from: The River (Paperback)
I found this book recently and I loved reading it! The writing is absolutely beautiful, and the story is compelling though at times disturbing. The characters are carefully drawn. Buy this book, read it and decide for yourself.

I for one am waiting to read more from this author, lets hope there is another book soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read this piece of great work, 10 Jun. 2010
Do More Great Work is a fantastic book, it is easy to engage with the exercises becaue they are presented in a simple way and are can be completed in short sessions (as little as fifteen minutes). However the impact of the book is significant, it is elegant in its simplicity and so gets to the heart of the matter, giving the reader insight and challenge.
