Beyond Words: What Animals Think and Feel

5.0 out of 5 stars Original, expert, and profound., July 21, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have been in love with animals all my life and lived with wild and domestic animals for much of my life; I was lucky enough to work with the primate ethologist Leonard Williams at his Monkey Sanctuary in England. I hesitate to read "animal books" because I do not wish to be disappointed. Carl Safina is a superlative ethicist, empath, and writer. This book is thrilling and deep, and Safina has collaborated with world class naturalists to produce it. You -- or the animal lovers in your life -- are in for a real treat.

This product left my natural hair drier and more difficult to comb through and manage than before I used it! Expensive experiment!

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality frame and feet. But nicely designed and well cushioned., December 20, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This sofa is supposed to have a hardwood frame and feet. When it arrived, I found it had a particle board and plywood frame. The feet are made of cheap plastic and need replacing. The particle board and plywood frame decrease the lifespan of this sofa considerably compared to the hardwood and it will probably not be as supportive for a bad back as a hardwood frame. I ordered this sofa thinking that I was making a bit of an investment in a well constructed product from a reputable company and am very disappointed to see that it was misrepresented on the website.
Having said that the sofa seems very comfortable, the cushions are quite firm, the depth and height of the sofa are just right, and the back cushions offer good lumbar support, so I am revising my review upwards.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible sodding toaster, December 20, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This toaster is the worst toaster that I have ever known and I am amazed that it has gotten a 4-star average. It takes two cycles on a high setting to even brown an English muffin or slice of bread and then it does not lift the muffin or slice high enough to retrieve it comfortably. You have to fish around carefully with your fingers next to its heating elements every time. I had it replaced thinking that the thermostat was defective and the second one was identical to the first one. This toaster can't manage totally basic functions that toaster manufacturers have had to cope with for as long as there have been toasters and I am stunned that this toaster has gotten past the quality control people in 2014.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I agree with other reviewers that this book provides a great deal of clear information without answering the question it purports to answer, which is how to evaluate whether you yourself need surgery, and which questions you and your physician should address together as part of that evaluation. Mis-titled and mis-sold.

5.0 out of 5 stars Documentary on Elliot Turiel's Social Domain Theory, April 7, 2014
This documentary, aimed at high school and undergraduate students, reviews the history and methodology of one of the most prominent moral development theories of today: social domain theory. Turiel and his colleagues have conducted hundreds of studies which demonstrate how morality emerges in early childhood and how people learn to coordinate moral, conventional, and private concerns to come to decisions in their social lives. A resource for lecturers of child and adolescent development, psychology, philosophy, and other courses which examine how we make moral decisions.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dangerous., March 13, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I loved the size of this casserole dish but I was always concerned that the lip of the cover was too shallow. It slides off so easily that it makes an otherwise well-designed dish hard to handle. Well, tonight the inevitable happened -- as I took the casserole out of the oven the lid slipped to one side, burnt the inside of my wrist, and smashed on the floor. Even though it was not that large of a drop the shards flew about ten foot in all directions, all different sizes, and nasty, cutting pieces. I am really surprised that Pyrex sells such a poorly designed product -- even though I was handling the dish carefully the lid is just NOT secure and the dish is dangerous, especially when hot.


Hidden In Silence
Hidden In Silence

Price: $2.96

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful biopic, March 1, 2014
This review is from: Hidden In Silence (Amazon Video)
of a courageous teenager and her 8-year-old sister who risk their lives to save Jews from the Nazis. Like "Call the Midwife", its realism lifts this story to a level of excellence that most authors must work a lifetime to attain.

5.0 out of 5 stars The only way to go with Harry Potter, February 22, 2014
These editions make the book an aesthetic pleasure and gives the story the dignity it deserves. Totally worth the extra expense, you'll hand it down.
