The Silence of Animals: On Progress and Other Modern Myths
The Silence of Animals: On Progress and Other Modern Myths
Price: £5.49

5.0 out of 5 stars No wonder they're silent, says Gray. Rightly., 5 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The 21st century in the West - probably the Wettest Place and Time ever. All sensibility and no sense. One of the very few ways to get even halfway dry is to read John Gray. Including this one.

Hides Classic Eyewear Accessory Black
Hides Classic Eyewear Accessory Black

5.0 out of 5 stars It fits and feels comfortable, 22 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I need a 'necklace' which will fit [over the ends of] my thick spec frames. But I don't like thin + long necklaces round my neck with frames swinging about. These 'Hides' are perfect solution: cloth, expand, right length - AND you have a wee lens cleaner too!

5.0 out of 5 stars What's not to love?, 13 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Red or Dead (Kindle Edition)
A no-brainer, really. Peace wrote The Damned United which is IMO excellent AND a tribute to both Clough and that great Leeds team. Defamation cases notwithstanding . . . and fact that both Clough and United had begun their respective declines. Red or Dead is an inside-the-head job on that other great 'manager' Bill Shankly. It stars Shankly, the Spion Kop and t people of Liverpool. Whats not to love?
btw, Peace's two Tokyo books are also excellent.

4.0 out of 5 stars First 'click' version - so far so good, 16 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I distrust pens that 'click'. Clicks can break, and I don't wan't my Moleskins to break. On other hand, unlike 'tops', clicks don't get lost . . This version is robust and reliable. Will report back again later . . . will it remain robust??

5.0 out of 5 stars Bot of background, 3 Dec. 2010
Not aiming for pedantry, just bit better understanding re where author is coming from [see church background review]. I remember Ms P as a Labour leftie activist, hanging out with the Bennite Livingstonistas, as far back as early/mid 80s. South African raised . . I think . . it was near 30 years ago. Academic wing, v much de haut en bas to thickos like me. But as writing this in December 2010, she sure seems to have been v right and well ahead of the game on the Debt. For that, she must be worth 5 stars. I will now go read it . .

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh eyes, 13 Jun. 2010
Venice can be intimidating. Crowded, hot, expensive, but most of all scary. So much to know, so little known etc. This time, March 2010, I think I got lucky. Maybe it was the time of year, because in late March it just wasn't so busy. Maybe the weather. It was cool, and every afternoon a mist would cover the city and hang around for a couple of hours. It would lift very slowly, and as it did: fresh eyes. So THIS is Venice . . . Ms Main's book made a big contribution, I believe. She tells a good story from the time her 'travelling companion' spent in the Serenissima as a student, and maybe that's the key. The necessary stuff is all there in 'Venice & Veneto, but it's written with a bit of youthful irreverence and exuberance. Exactly the tone I needed to contain the intimidation and help me see Venice through fresh eyes. And it's true: the popout map is really useful.
