I enjoyed the first quarter of the book, but then the knives came out, the self backslapping, the overblown ego, the self rightousness was sickening. He still believes he was the best PM ever!

An excellent journey of discovery of an area of the body equally as important as the brain. Most of us assume the body takes care of itself.. out of sight out of mind. This book easily explains the workings of the digestive system and living bacteria in the body, their functions and also provides advice for a more healthy body.

a must read for all Australians

What an eye opener! Pascoe has produced some incredible stories backed by evidence that was passed over and totally ignored by historians, who deliberately produced stories that our indigenous were hunter gatherers and savages! Instead, they were farming, building houses, rearing animals, using water and fire wisely, and were not savages.

From the beginning to the end, George Galloway keeps the listener fascinated by his apparent honesty and humour of his years from street gang fighter to a seat in Westminster. Although I don't agree with all his views, this book is compelling listening to anyone who was brought up in the 70s.

This story, even though it was written many years ago, is as relevant today as it was back then. notably the huge difference between the rich and the poor, the poor's incapacity to comprehend that they are being used for the benefit of the wealthy, the wealthy's cunning and clever manipulation of this ignorance for their own benefit. A very sad but beautifully constructed work that evetyone should tead.

A fabulous history of Fascism from its early days with Mussolini to the present. Ms Albright gives a clear and thoroughly researched journey, comparing different aspects of politics and its consequences. Thoroughly enjoyable and highly recommended.

What a fascinating, educational book! I'd never been sure of what exactly Mr Robertson did, but in this book he succinctly narrates his life and work in clear sometimes humorous chapters. I was never bored and his narration was clear and precise. Highly recommended.
