  • DaemonPlayer - Worth the 60 dollarsSome people complain about the chat and skill functions of this game resembling World of Warcraft too much, but I don't think that detracts from the overall experience. This game is original and well worth the money spent on it. Besides the initial 12-24 hours required to actually beat the basic normal difficulty, Diablo III also offers rewards for dedicating more time into the game. There is so much replay value and potential with this game that for me to rate less than a 5 in this review would be sacrilege. This game is sure to top even Diablo II in the months and years to come. That same item hoarding and hack and slash that we're all familiar with from Diablo II is back- with a vengeance.
  • Freethinker - A new way of eatingAs a hardcore long-life dieter, I can honestly say I am stunned (in a wonderful way) with this plan. I'm not even calling it a diet because this plan can be easily followed for life with some added personal preferences after the extra weight is dropped. I was looking for a program that would NOT starve me, made me lose muscle and/or made me sicker than I was. I had a heart attack a couple of years back and I needed to lose weight in order to control my blood pressure. I also needed to radically change my diet as to lower my bad cholesterol,raise my good cholesterol and lower my triglycerides. Believe me, I have looked, and tried many, many, MANY diets with limited or no success. I heard about this program and I immediately bought the book. As I started reading it, I soon realized that this book just makes SENSE. The information contained in this book is sensible, and can be followed by anyone interested not only in feeling and looking better but in getting healthier while doing it. This plan calls for people to drop unhealthy habits and addicting foods and that makes it hard at the beginning, but the longer one stays off caffeine, sugar, alcohol, fake food and junk, the better one feels. I DO recommend this diet without any reservations.
    I'm happy to report that I'm now finishing my first 28 days (one more day to go) and I have not felt this well in a looooong time. I'm off blood pressure medication as it is under control. I have lost 13 lbs. and 3 1/2 inches from my waist, and my energy is through the roof. I'm planning on continuing this plan until I lose another 20 lbs. I need to lose, and then will continue tis plan for life with a few modifications to suit my lifestyle. This is a keeper!!!
  • WordNerdSHM - Tips in This Book Saved us Time and MoneyI have been a diehard Lonely Planet guide user for over 20 years of travel. I think they are still a great resources for certain places in the world, but for Europe, I was really happy with the Rick Steves guidebook. That is where he focuses, and he's been hitting the road there for decades, so there is certainly things he has learned and can share. Plus I enjoy his philosophy of traveling light. I read this book pretty much cover to cover before we left on our trip and we also took it along. I would recommend this guide for Spain (there is now a 2012 edition), because it provided a good overview to the cities we visited and specific money and time saving tips for some of the major sites. We were able to skip ticket lines at the Prado, book discount train fare on RenfeiPad, including visits to TripAdvisor, Lonely Planet Thorn Tree and the Frommer's bulletin board.
  • Lu Lu - Thank you, no!no!I admit that I probably was LESS skeptical about this product as most before purchasing because I have tried a variety of different hair removal methods and I know that nothing is 100% perfect. I waited a few years to purchase this item because the original model was not recommended for use on the face and that is what I wanted it for. I finally got around to purchasing one in January 2012 and I have to say that I am very satisfied.

    A little background about myself: I am in my late thirties, half Armenian, and have excess hair on my face and arms that make me feel self-conscious. My face has a range of black "stumps" from years of plucking my chin to more fine and lightly colored fuzz on my cheeks. The hair is pretty much everywhere, including my female sideburns. Gross, I know. The hair on my arms is dark brown, long, and thick. I have fair, olive-toned skin so everything shows up on it. I am good at following skin care and other beauty regimens but sometimes I get lazy and slack off. I spend a moderate amount of money on my physical appearance but nothing over the top...I use a combination of drugstore and "prestige" brand cosmetics and such. I would consider myself to be a medium-high maintenance type of girl and a bit of a product junkie.

    Back to the product. I found it fairly easy to use and I have not had a lot of problems burns or with the light turning off while in use like many have said, maybe it is the shape of my face? I don't know. I almost always use the wide heat blade, even above my lip. It does stink when you use it, hell yes, but I light a candle or my Lampberger and go on with my life. The nono works best on my face and it has been a bit of miracle worker for me. I have noticed a slow reduction of regrowth but the fact that thing gets rid of the hair without leaving a bunch of little red pluck spots is the real clincher for me. I have to use it every other day but it still takes me less time to nono and buff than it does to pluck. I love the fact that I am done with fuzz on my cheeks and sideburns and my makeup goes on so much nicer now. I do have to come in a get a few black stumps from my chin now and then, especially if I know I am going to be out in the sun with other people.
    I have also used it on my arms and I have noticed a reduction in regrowth there as well, but it takes so damn long to do. I still do use it on my arms occasionally but usually get lazy and buzz over them with the shaver attachment on my Panasonic epilator. I have not even bothered to try the nono on my legs because it would take an eternity...but that is why I have an epilator and razors.

    Overall I am very happy with this product but I don't think it is for everybody. It is expensive and if you are not that hairy I wouldn't bother. However, if you have a really hairy face this thing ROCKS as long as you understand that it is not going to get rid of all of your hair after a few uses. If you are like me just knowing that there is something to help this much is comforting.

    One other unexpected bonus is that this thing fries off skin tags! I discovered this by accident but I am sure glad I did. Oh yeah, and it is cordless and rechargeable to you can take it camping or whatever. And no, I do not work for the company. I am just a hairy Armenian girl looking for some relief : )
  • A. Davidson "Alan Davidson" - No-nonsense direct but entertaining information !I sincerely believe for no-nonsense direct information, producing the desired results in relationships on all levels, Leils books are best, and I have read quite a few.
    The book is written in entertaining manner from her personal life experiences and observations. Obviously this is back up by much scientific study information.
    As with all Leils book's it hits the subject head-on and wasted no time.
