Guy Gunaratne's blistering debut, In Our Mad and Furious City, is an unforgettable portrait of 48 hours on a London council estate. For Selvon, Ardan and Yusuf, growing up under the towers of Stones Estate, summer means what it does anywhere: football, music, freedom. But now, after the killing of a British soldier, riots are spreading across the city, and nowhere is safe. While the fury swirls around them, Selvon and Ardan remain focused on their own obsessions, girls and grime.

As an immigrant the subject matter is of great interest to me - a safe read for Guardian reading middle class people who forgot to check in. on what's really happening in the streets - characterisation is conceptually great, but in reality a tad dull - writing is mediocre - it may not have meant to be, but it came across as stereotypical and predictable. I stopped reading it half way through as I felt I was being talked down to... shame - brilliant idea for a book - clever narrative structure - needed to be re-draughted a few more times before going to print in my humble opinion...

Erich von Däniken's Chariots of the Gods is a work of monumental importance---the first book to introduce the shocking theory that ancient Earth was visited by aliens. This world-famous best seller has withstood the test of time, inspiring countless books and films, including the author's own popular sequel, The Eye of the Sphinx.

Would you listen to Fear of Abandonment: Craig Beck Hypnosis again? Why?

This publication is hugely powerful, and beautifully put together. I am a veteran of alternative therapies due to long-term chronic health issues, and have tried hypnosis previously at great expense and with no success.

Together with Craig's other works, and my own meditation techniques, I have found the change in my behaviour, perspectives, emotional responses, the quality of my relationships, the medical results I have achieved, and stress levels in general, to be positive, dramatic, and profound.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The majestic apple tree: I found I could swap out the cool tree for key issues in my life: and address them directly: I'm aware this sounds weird, but if you purchase and listen to this book, I guarantee you'll understand!

Have you listened to any of Craig Beck’s other performances? How does this one compare?

This is the ooey gooey soft centre of Craig's work - this is the core of our subconscious and belief systems being challenged and changed for the better - all of his other works are underpinned by the fundamental information contained in his hypnosis downloads.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I experienced the full range of human emotion and consciousness whilst ingesting this work.

Any additional comments?

Just do it.

What did you like most about The Powerfully Confident Woman?

I enjoyed this book it gave me a practical guide to applying Craig Beck's techniques of "manifesting magic" with a spin that relates more specifically to the feminine psyche.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Powerfully Confident Woman?

Realising that despite regarding myself as a confident woman, there are many areas of my life in which this isn't as true as I thought it was!

What about Craig Beck’s performance did you like?

It is a powerful experience for women to experience this level of empathy from the male perspective, and as such, the exercises suggested in this book have a direct impact on one's behaviour.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me wake up!

An essential component of the law of attraction is realizing that where you fix your attention can have a powerful impact on what happens to you. However, despite what you may have been told, your ability to manifest the life of your dreams has nothing to do with positive thinking and affirmations. Think anything you want, but unless you believe it, you will not be sending the right vibrations out into the universe to have it appear.

What made the experience of listening to The Law of Attraction the most enjoyable?

I believe Craig Beck's work is ground breaking. I have a long history of researching this kind of material and a great deal of experience in applying these kind of practical techniques in my life. I find that this type of literature can only bring about a successful manifestation if it is very precise and correct: there are many many other similar works that omit key details and fundamental philosophies. I have a chronic illness and have already achieved tangilble changes in the blood results and emotional issues relating to my condition - it is no co-incidence. I cannot recommend this material highly enough.

Who was your favorite character and why?

This is non-fictional.

What about Craig Beck’s performance did you like?

His writing is brilliantly researched, relatable, well-written, and has infinite practical applications. I listen to it daily to improve my mood and motivate me.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Kick your ego out of the driving seat!

Any additional comments?

Exemplary.

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

N/A

What could Lily Samuel and Luke Katz have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I really enjoyed this book, and when it came to the end of the first chapter, or rather the introduction, I was ready to get stuck in and looking forward to reading the whole thing.

How could the performance have been better?

Turns out the introduction to this book IS the entire book! This is not a book: it's the equivalent of a blog entry, a magazine article, half a short story.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I was really into this book! That's the silly thing: it just needs to be planned properly and written out properly. It's too short and too shallow!

Any additional comments?

Yeah - WRITE A BOOK AND I'LL BUY IT! lol XD
