This review is from: Theraderm Peptide Hydrator (Misc.)
I love this moisturizer. It glides on like a dream -- no drag, not heavy, not sticky. It's just perfect. My skin doctor recommended it. I first bought it from the manufacturer, now get it from Amazon.

These are so easy to take and taste great, too! What a great buy! Don't know for sure if they have helped my hair and nails but I don't think they have hurt. I've been taking them for about 3 months now.

4.0 out of 5 stars They're just okay., June 25, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I like these okay, I don't love them. The size is good and the texture strong. They remove makeup and mineral-based sun screen well. They don't remove eye makeup, however. I always have to add some eye makeup remover or baby oil to the Olay cloth to get the eye makeup off. So, they're just okay.

2.0 out of 5 stars A bitter experience, June 25, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This pill has a taste so bitter that it makes me shiver and shudder just thinking about it!! When I take it, it sticks to the back of my throat and then my gag reflex kicks in. It is a horrible experience. It is a compressed pill of concentrated green tea, uncoated, unencapsulated. For me, it is so difficult to swallow it is not worth the low price. I will look for a different form of green tea concentrate to take. I gave it 2 stars because it is what it says it is -- concentrated green tea. I just hate taking it!

2.0 out of 5 stars would be pretty but ..., June 13, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This piece of furniture would be pretty but unfortunately it is ruined by heavy drips and runs, bubbles and bumps of sealer or varnish. It is so gunked up with this finishing coat the piece is ruined.

2.0 out of 5 stars appears wider in picture, January 11, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
In actuality, it's not as wide as it appears in the picture. It is probably the same scarf but somehow they made it appear wider. It's still reasonable for the money.

3.0 out of 5 stars The last chapter makes the book worthwhile, June 18, 2010
I chose to read this book because I am on a quest to learn about Arab history and the Arab mind, and those intersecting with Israel would be a bonus, or so I thought. I was disappointed. I didn't learn much about either the Arab mind or it's history. The book is Kai Bird's memories and experiences, mostly childhood, of growing up in Arab-controlled West Jerusalem where his father was an American Foreign Service officer. He also lived in Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and attended some college in Lebanon. Because he grew up with the Palestinians his bias is very definitely with them, and he makes no apologies about this.

I don't think he even used the word "Muslim" until the last 5 pages of the book. How do you understand anything about the Arabs and leave out their Islamicism? He mentioned the events that concerned Israel in a very detached and cardboard kind of way. When he said the Israelis invaded Lebanon, for example, he glossed over the fact that the Palestinians were camped along the border and attacking Israel from there. Leaving out the Israeli side of events was a serious lack.

One interesting idea I gained from the book is this: In the 1970 Jordan "civil" war, as he calls it, when actually the Palestinian refugees caused so much ruckus in Jordan that the Jordanians had to run them out, he writes about the road not taken. If Israel had let the Palestinians over-throw King Hussein's monarchy and take over Jordan, as they were about to do, then the Palestinians would have a country and the whole Palestinian-Israeli question may have been solved. It would have been the "Jordanian solution" as the answer for Palestinian self-determination. Right-wing Israelis (Moshe Dayan, Shimon Peres, Ariel Sharon) wanted to actively support the PLO in it's drive to transform the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan into the Republic of Palestine. As it was, Golda Meir, Abba Eban, and Yitzhak Rabin saw King Hussein as the most moderate of the Arab leaders and thought he might someday conduct a separate peace deal with Israel, and their views prevailed.

That insight offered in the "Black September 1970" chapter and the last chapter, "The Hebrew Republic" are all that make the book worthwhile, in my opinion. The last chapter described the Holocaust and was very moving and meaningful. It also described the making of Israel and some important Jewish writers and thinkers such as Victor Navasky and Hillel Kook, a. k. a. Peter Bergson.

5.0 out of 5 stars rational political reformist of Islam, March 30, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Infidel (Paperback)
Memoir of a political reformist of Islam who grew up in revolution and restraint in Somolia, Ethiopic, and Kenya before fleeing to Holland where she became a member of Parliament. Her reasonings for Islamic reform are not the rantings of someone who has been damaged by her experiences and is lashing out. She wants her reasons to be judged on the validity of her arguments, not as a victim.

I enjoyed her mental process as she examined her culture as she experienced new things and different ways.
