Why We Get Fat: And What to Do About It
Why We Get Fat: And What to Do About It

5.0 out of 5 stars It Works!, Aug. 3 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Found this book to be well written, concise, and practical. Put it into practice about a month ago, and have already lost 15 pounds without really trying. The theories presented in the book make sense to me, and I have seem some very recent studies in the literature that correlate well with what G. Taubes is asserting in this book. It is about time that the medical field stops with the chant of 'calories in, calories out' as it just does NOT work for lots of people. I know several people who have changed their way of eating to follow these guidelines, and it works for them. They eat well, exercise moderately, and maintain a healthy body.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worked well but did NOT last, Dec 26 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
We have had several different converter boxes over the years, and this one has been the best to use/set-up. Worked very well, but unfortunately stopped working only 2 months after purchase - would not get audio on several channels although the video still worked well. Put an older converter in and the sound was fine...very disappointed to spend $90 for a unit for only 2 months. Making it seem reasonable to go the satellite route...

Doesn't smell anything like pine in my opinion - not what I was expecting, although it is a pleasant enough scent.

This review is from: Above Suspicion - Set 1 (DVD)
This is another fine example of British crime drama - well acted, compelling and interesting story lines with twists and turns...television at its finest. Love the police dramas from the Uk - if you enjoy Lewis, Cracker etc. you will likely enjoy this one too!

As usual, absolutely inspired writing and production in the Lewis series - so sorry to see it ending. The entire series is excellent television, and this is no exception.

Still coming up with innovative new criminals, this show continues to be entertaining even six years into production. Well worth the money for this amount of viewing time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Unusual and fantastic, Dec 10 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Bought this DVD set without knowing anything about the series, other than reviews/recommendations on Amazon. Very glad I did. The lead character is multi-faceted, flawed and entertaining, as well as perceptive. Great stories, great acting. If you enjoy British crime drama, you won't be disappointed in this series. It is an interesting mix of drama and dark humour. Enjoyed it immensely!

As usual, another excellent Law & Order production. The stories are fresh and the acting exceptional. Wonderful to see the older series again - almost like you are seeing it for the first time. Highly recommend this as great entertainment, if you enjoy crime dramas.
