What Money Can't Buy: The Moral Limits of Markets
What Money Can't Buy: The Moral Limits of Markets

2.0 out of 5 stars money can buy better, 5 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For me, a disappointing book. I expected to find many more references to public service activity and its place within the morality of markets. This was not the case. More importantly, the examples that were given of where 'market ethics' should not be applied, were repeated time after time and this ruined much in the way of progression in Sandel's arguments. No problems at all though in terms of delivery, condition of product on arrival etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars captive state - george monbiot, 22 April 2012

This is a book that everyone should read. Read, be afraid - very afraid - and take appropriate action to end this insanity and the disintegration of the whole world.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dickens - a life, 24 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Captivating - very hard to put down. Staggering amount of detail researched - perhaps a little too much included at times, as if Tomalin thought she had to put it 'all' in. Highly evocative of the period. A must read, definitely.

Even Dickens 'imself would have found it hard to put this down. What a tremendous cast - Charles Dance is particularly terrifying.

1.0 out of 5 stars don't bother!!, 24 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Following a lengthy assembly process - helped not at all by the incomprehensible manual - the final act: inserting a pair of batteries into the base station, was thwarted by lack of terminal clips. To add insult to the injury, a neat little 'pass' sticker had been placed right next to where the clips should have been in the battery compartment. Doesn't exactly inspire confidence in this company's quality monitoring! Buy elsewhere or risk disappointment!

such haunting ideas, layers of meaning - not the best writing style but after a while the mental images take over.

4.0 out of 5 stars wherever you go........, 22 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very good introduction to the field from a master. Whets the appetite for knowing more and a couple of JK-Zinn's audio books are a good follow up and give more detail abou tthe practice of this form of meditation. This book could change your life - or some of it at least!
