Kaiser Wilhelm II: A Concise Life Paperback – 21 Aug 2014
by John C. G. Röhl
This was an easy and captivating read – the translation by Sheila De Bellaihue worked a treat although I have no expertise whatsoever in German to judge the success of the translation but the resulting prose and style kept my attention and was riveting. This summary encourages me to read the fuller works. This Concise Life showed how Kaiser Wilhelm’s character and personality was formed and convinced me that he was the major cause of the 1st World War – his perverse narcissism is so patently clear which was considerably aggravated by his position as an absolute Monarch and a mother who neglected him…a human tragedy with devastating consequences. This work enhances the process of learning from history for the future, if we are prepared to learn and act from this example of a very damaged man.

4.0 out of 5 stars At last - a sensibly made item to ensure modesty!, 10 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had been looking for a sarong type towel with velcro and last year despite extensive 'googling' could not find one. I tried again this year and these items appeared.They appear to be well made with a good piece of velcro which is wide enough and holds very well. Will protect any gentleman's modesty coming out of the sauna, shower or changing on the beach! No more embarrassing exposures!

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit slow and ponderous although a great story., 15 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Refreshing innocence of the story in a cynical world but somehow abit slow. I prefer the story and film 'Never Take No for an Answer' (1951) about a young boy who wants to cure his donkey by taking him to St Francis' Church in Assisi

5.0 out of 5 stars A great Invention, 23 Jun. 2010
Even for a moderate DIY/Hobbyist user like myself, this Bosch item is clever in design, easy to use and very versatile. Very pleased with the purchase which is much used. A product typical of the Bosch hallmark of solid design and manufacture.
