Prague Walks (On Foot Guides)
Prague Walks (On Foot Guides)
by Frank Kuznik
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Book, Amazing Walks, 16 May 2014
Prague Walks is one of a series of books (London Walks, Paris Walks, others) that I rate above all others. Beautifully planned, detailed and 3-D maps, each walk is a joy, full of amazing sights and great memories for later :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars A Work of Art!, 21 April 2013
Beautiful book, excellent hand drawn diagrams, priceless WayPoints which can be downloaded from the Trailblazer website, and very detailed info on where to stay, where to eat. I completed the West Highland Way (on my own) last week, with this book (and a basic GPS) in hand, and no need for any other maps :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfection in a Bottle, 6 Feb. 2013
This has to be the most beautiful women's perfume I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. Better than Channel No.5, better than Angel.

I learnt today that it is a unisex perfume, so have ordered it straightaway!

I think it is not available freely in the UK, so it is great that Amazon has it at such an attractive price :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Priceless!, 6 Oct. 2012
A beautiful book, with excellent and amazingly detailed hand-drawn maps and the waypoints feature is the icing on the cake. I did the coast to coast walk in 2010 with this book at hand, and next year am planning the West Highlands Way :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfection!, 7 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having watched it twice in the cinema, and twice on DVD now, I honestly think I will not see a better movie in my lifetime. The performances, the casting, the storyline, the soundtrack, the editing, all perfect. Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Benedict Cumberbatch, John Hurt, what can I say, words fail me... Amazing, absolutely amazing acting, brings joy to the genre, a classic, spellbinding tale that hypnotizes you as it unfolds...

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Perfect!, 30 Sept. 2010
I am a novice cook, interested in improving my cooking skills, and this is the best book I have ever seen about cooking. Although it covers more than just cooking, the recipes that I have tried so far have been amazingly spot-on. I am generally quite intimidated by recipe books which describe complex ingredients and cooking techniques. Especially the measures in mls and grams are a bit off putting for a novice like myself. The use of measures such as 'mugs' instead of 250 mls etc. is a refreshing change. :-)

This book offers 'Foolproof' recipes, which have actually made my life much more interesting, since I now have at least 5-10 mouth-watering dishes that I will be learning over the coming days. Not only are the recipes extremely simple and inviting, the fun diagrams/cartoons are light-hearted and bring a smile to the face.

I would strongly recommend this wonderful book to all the novice cooks out there who would like to learn more about cooking, without getting tangled up in complicated recipes. Five stars all the way!

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid Value for Money, 29 Aug. 2009
I will give this book five stars- because it works for me. :-)

Some tips are common-sense/common-knowledge, while others are refreshingly innovative and/or offer new perspectives. For example, Tip 161, Surround yourself with stimulation, with a quote by David Freemantle, forced me to reflect on my own boring surroundings and daily routine, which had hitherto been in my 'blind spot'.

This title is not about a unifying strategy for dealing with low self-esteem. Rather, it presents little tactical manoeuvres to deal with the issue.

I would strongly recommend it!
