5.0 out of 5 stars Utopia Is A Grand Story !, August 27, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Utopia (Kindle Edition)
The story begins with St.Thomas Moore being placed
in the household of John Cardinal Morton, Archbishop
of Canterbury. Moore studied law and entered the
Parliament at an early age. He was deeply engaged
in the political and social controversies of the time.

Later, he was to argue the need to apply each
person's talents to peaceful endeavors rather than
war and interminable conflicts. Moore describes the
tradespeople of the day. For instance, there were
experts in agriculture, wool, flax, masonry and
carpentry.

Families made their own clothes and some grew their
own food. Parents trained their sons and daughters in
popular trade skills passed down from many generations.
Life was not unlike the descriptions by Adam Smith in
"The Wealth of Nations".

At the Counsel at Amaurot, participants examined the
contrast between abundance and scarcity. This was an
important concern for Moore. He believed that water and
arable land were plentiful on earth. Moore described
how priests knelt to pray during horrific battles.

Overall, Utopia is an important piece of English literature
which has withstood the passing of many centuries since
its initial writing.


It Was a Dark and Creepy Night
It Was a Dark and Creepy Night
Price: $10.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Scary Stories!, August 26, 2014
The book is filled with scary stories which are perfect for
a Halloween evening discussion. For instance, take the
late night ghost whose presence can be felt distinctly as it
places its fingers along your neckline. Another story has
the character reach into a pocket and take out a real eyeball or
how about the underwear which walked down the hall with no
person wearing it.

You can't make this stuff up (or maybe you could). In any event,
be prepared to be scared out of your wits. This book would be
a perfect acquisition for all who have the courage to read it alone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Enough To Entertain On A Spooky Halloween Night, August 26, 2014
Demon Street is an interesting journey
into the spiritual domain of psychics,
psychic fairs and the unexplainable.
The character,Penelope has a series of
harrowing experiences which culminate
in abandoning her home plagued by a
phantom party,a dancing stove and forces
seemingly beyond her control.

Occasionally,the drama gets more intense.
For instance,an interesting phenomena
is described when "Inside the swirling
maelstrom of glowing smoke,there was a
constant sparkle punctuated by sporadic
unearthly flashes".Readers need more
phraseology like this throughout.

The seer's environment was captured
appropriately when"The smell of incense
permeated the air making my head spin.
"The further description of the psychic
fair has meaning for enthusiasts of the
spiritual world; however,the story
doesn't build up to the expected level
of excitement commensurate with a drama
laden psychic fair.

The book has possibilities; although the story
is not developed enough to give the reader a
sense of continuing suspense throughout the
whole book and at the critical juncture of
the psychic fair.

In a second edition, the book could have
more descriptions of events that would
engage the audience in high suspense at
the psychic fair.The reviewer obtained a
free copy of the book for review purposes.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Read With Plenty Of Adventure!, August 25, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The book begins with King Vortigern being told
of an enemy approaching. He orders that a
castle be built within 100 days as a refuge from
the oncoming attack. The story leads into a
tremendous battle between dragons in a lake
environment.

Merlin predicts that the outcome of the battle
represents Britain's eventual decline. The stories
build up to the end of King Arthur's reign due to
the war with Sir Lancelot.

The story is thoroughly engaging for readers everywhere.
The verse is written in an "Old English" colloquial style which
adds to the interesting aspect of the stories presented.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The Cooper diet book is well developed. There are
very extensive menus for breakfast, lunch and
dinner. Each menu contains a full color picture of
the dish prepared in the preferred mode.Ingredients
are set forth clearly and sequentially.

Here are some samples of the food preparations
cited; Cabbage and Caraway, Steamed Vegetable
Bowl, Okra w/Sweet Potato and many others.

The author establishes just what constitutes a
quality diet, as well as, the presence of dietary
fats within proper limits. Overall, the presentation
would be very helpful for dieters everywhere.


How to Improve Your Memory: Tips & Exercises to Boost Brainpower
How to Improve Your Memory: Tips & Exercises to Boost Brainpower
Price: $0.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Acquisition - Especially At This Price, August 23, 2014
John's book gets into considerable detail
on the physiology and mechanics of memory.
The author explains the role of sleep in memory,
as well as, classic memory aids.

The book indicates that testing can improve
recollection. In addition, smells can aid in
jogging the memory to remember contexts of
situations. As such, smell is another pointer to
memory.

One of the most valuable aspects of the book
is the section which explains why we forget.
The act of forgetting can be associated with
retrieval problems, interference, failure to store
information and motivated forgetting.

John's book would be perfect for a wide
constituency of users like students, the elderly,
entrepreneurs, salespeople and anyone in a
service industry. The presentation is very easy
to read and understand. The advice is thoroughly
researched and practical for implementation in
a number of very important social contexts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Risen - A Fantastic Battle, August 23, 2014
The ruling class of Darracia faces a series
of thoroughly harrowing experiences like
being imprisoned on a lonely celestial body
and trapped at the bottom of the sea.Somehow,
the principals escape and battle impossible
odds. Find out how they do so by reading
this thoroughly engaging book.

Here is a quote from one of the many
swashbuckling passages:
"Visair's breath caught in his throat,
as the snout of the giant beast he'd
seen under the water arced its vast
head above the waterline,its nostrils
flaring with the scent of Tulani's blood."

5.0 out of 5 stars Helpful But Verify With Your Medical Providers For Long Term Use, August 21, 2014
The Number One Nutrition-Glucosamine-Chondroitin-MSM
Supplement has a generous amount of each ingredient.
There are 900 mg. of Glucosamine Sulfate, 720 mg. of
Chondriatin Sulfate and 1200 mg of MSM. Each of the
ingredients has a more generous mix of constituent
ingredients than in comparable products.

Patients would take this supplement to deal with the
adverse effects of joint pain. According to Nutritional
Healing by Balch, " Glucosamine is thus involved in
the formation of the nails, tendons, skin, eyes, bones,
ligaments and heart valves. It also plays a role in the
mucous secretions of the digestive, respiratory, and
urinary tracts."

This product is just one of the many strategies involved
in combating arthritis, as well as, the secondary symptoms
or aggravating symptoms of arthritis like IBS, Crohns,
Diverticulitis and other conditions of the gastrointestinal
tract. Other strategies include strict diet regimens and
extensive physical therapy. Fried foods, sugar, alcohol,
coffee, gluten and a whole plethora of allergens can make
joint problems significantly difficult to deal with. As a result,
patients need to consult with a gastroenterologist, specialists
in allergies/ immune system, rheumatologists, physical
therapists, nutritionists and others in order to craft a
comprehensive approach toward arthritis management.

You should always consult with a qualified medical team
on the exact mix of medications, vitamins and nutrients
applicable to your specific case and blood/urine profile
over many years.
