5.0 out of 5 stars Should be compulsory reading, 17 Jan. 2016
Though clearly written after much academic study and experience working with high-powered people, this book is a gold-mine of common sense for the everyday person. Insights and anecdotes from international finance or global conference calls are as applicable to any level of work. I have many half-read self-improvement books on the shelf, but this one I actually looked forward to reading, and re-reading, and have taken the DATE daily ‘download’ into my routine and stuck many of the other ideas up above my desk.

When the book arrived, it had been damaged in transit and was soaking wet. I put it on the radiator to dry. The next day there were post-it notes sticking out of it. ‘Who’s been reading my book?’ I asked. The receptionist said ‘I did, it’s got some really good ideas’.
Caroline’s writing style is clear, precise, witty and her insights are extraordinary in the way they make you rethink yet they’re profoundly simple to understand. In a world where people are often thrown into managerial roles they’re not trained for, and where email is king but nobody knows the rules… this should be compulsory reading. And the world would be a better place.

2.0 out of 5 stars not up to normal standards at all., 8 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I usually race through these books. This was really not engaging, badly edited, with repetitious use of words, un-charismatic characters and an uninspiring plot. Started ok and droned on.

A good price. Had one before that burnt out. Not tremendously well shaped for my wide-screen laptop, but perfectly functional. It's quite loud though.

3.0 out of 5 stars It is exactly what it says, 5 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It arrived quickly, the case is lovely, the keyboard set up very easily and all fine, but I won't use it all the time, as the bluetooth take over the touch-screen facility, which is a bit annoying if you just want to tap something quickly in bed or don't want to use the keyboard. This is not the product's fault. But it will be great to use while travelling. Soft keys will take a bit of getting used to.

There's not many pleasures greater than new sheets, and this one is lovely. Very soft and smooth.
I'll buy from this company again.

It's a battery. It fits. It works.

It arrived when it said it would and it was well-packaged.
That's all

5.0 out of 5 stars Smart writing, 11 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In every sense, this book taught me a lot, about writing, and history and characterisation. The main character is so mild and you never really find out about his personality, but he has this fascinating life story to tell, and it was all spun together so interestingly.

4.0 out of 5 stars I really enjoy her books, 11 Aug. 2013

Funny, poignant and well-written.
I aim to work through them all. She's a clever writer and I can't usually guess the endings.

So comfy. I was suffering knee pain, which has been so much better after wearing these. I think I'm walking better and the soles of my feet feel so much more cushioned. I'll probably wear them all year round.
