5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference book and training companion, 18 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've read lots of material on training, nutrition, physiology, etc. This is by far the best book on running that I have read. Clear concise and very informative. Dispels many training myths and provides science based remedies for those running problems. If your serious about running then you need to read this book and save yourself a lot of money. Highly recommended

This review is from: Gore Men's Air Tights (Apparel)
Lightweight, warm and well fitting. I'm a 36 waist and the legs are a little long for me (30 inside leg) but nothing to worry about. Material is comfortable on the skin, ankle zips run smoothly. Ideal for those chilly running days. As good as many more expensive running tights. Well recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, 21 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an older model Garmin. It does what is says on the tin and does it well. A little big on the wrist but nothing obtrusive. I down load all my training onto the laptop and this Garmin does it every time with no glitches. Easy to use and easy to set up.......Ideal purchase, decent price and swiftly delivered...Highly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars dont waste your time, 28 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Cheap and nasty, very flimsy, broke on first use, not worth the very low price and they dont fit a normal adult males ears. Company very good, told them how bad the product was and they refunded the money immediately. Perhaps they knew!

3.0 out of 5 stars Product good service lacking, 28 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good product well priced that does exactly what is says on the tin. Unfortunately there was a delay in getting it, no one was at home so it was returned to sender by the postal company. That didnt stop the company taking the funds out of my account. A week or so later I enquired and they re-sent the product. If I hadnt chased this up my money would presumebaly still be with them !

5.0 out of 5 stars An outstanding read, 1 May 2009
This is a first class biography and a must read for anyone interetsted in Chruchill, human conflict, leadership, or the social history of the UK and its empire. It is also a story of a dysfunctional family who's lineage produced probably the geatest leader of the 20th century. He was a man of his times, from childish and arrogant to bullish and brave. The book is very well written and easy to digest, the author does not make value judgements but presents the facts with assurance, offers intrepretations, with logical assumptions based on solid academic research. Whilst this is an excellent reference book it is also the story of probably the last Great Briton to reflect what this country stood for, and some of it was'nt all that good. But also how an era ended in such tragic loss of life with 2 global conflicts that reverberate today. Also if you want to understand 21st century relationships with the middle east, Iran - Iraq, with muslim fundamentalism, African relationships, European suspicions and much more, read this and discover the roots of many modern problems.
I remember Churchills funeral and the national mourning that surrounded it. This book tells me why a country, and the greatest empire ever assembled came to a standstill when when he died.

This is a first class piece of work that is thoroughly enjoyable to read whilst heartbreaking to absorb. I have not read d'Este before but I will certainly find his previous work.
