For anyone who has suffered mental illness, who knows, or who is related to someone that has. The author was a career driven person with a very bright future ahead, and yet he suffered a complete breakdown. I could fully empathise with many of the experiences he places in his autobiography. The benefit I got (from a previous standpoint that had seen mental illness as a weakness) was knowing that I was not alone in my suffering, and this illness can affect anyone from any background at any time. My wife read it and she found that she too could identify with many aspects described from her point of view, the spouse of someone who is suffering. We both found the honesty of the author to be very touching, sometimes making us laugh out loud and at other times bringing tears of sadness. I am glad I bought this book and think that it can only help others to understand the difficulties described and experienced by the author.
Samsung B2100 Solid Extreme Sim Free Unlocked Mobile Phone (Black/Red)
2 New from
I bought this phone mainly because it's waterproof and can take a few knocks. I have three dogs that I walk in all weathers and previously with my Nokia 8800 I never took it if the weather was really bad for fear of ruining it. I still have the Nokia which I use for work, but for all social activity this is the phone I take. It's lightweight, has a superb battery life and has most of the features that many contempary mobiles offer. I have put an 8gb micro SD card in which is great for listening to MP3's while I'm walking and also loaded a few movies in case I ever again get stuck on public transport and then delayed for almost two hours!The camera is OK but limited, which does not really bother me as if I go on holiday I take a proper camera.The extra feature that is not offered by most mobiles is the torch (flashlight). I don't know about you but whenever I really need a torch I can't find one and if I do, chances are the battteries are dead! The torch on this is really good and I'm sure will be very useful.I live in a rural area and the reception for some mobiles I've owned has been very poor. I have found the Samsung to be very good and have not yet dropped a call or had anyone say that they couldn't get through.Why five stars? Simply because of the range of features,design and cost. I think for most day to day uses this will be hard to beat!
LED Lenser V6 Power Chip

I needed a new compact torch and after surfing the net for a while this seemed to be the answer. Around £30 for a LED torch may seem a lot (especially when you can buy similar looking for £10 or less) but after reading the reviews by other buyers I placed my order, and I am very glad I did!! The item is delivered in a quality box. As soon as you open the packing and hold the item you will appriciate the quality of the machined aircraft grade aluminium finish. It really is superb! When nightfall came I was delighted and amazed by the power. I compared it with another torch I keep in my garage and that unit has 100 LED's!! The lenser was easily more powerful with a very sharp and focused white light. Another great thing about this product is it's use of standard size AAA batteries. All in all, the old saying that 'you get what you pay for' is 100% applicable to this torch, and I would say that it is worth every penny of it's price.
