1.0 out of 5 stars Surprise surprise, 26 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The surprise was for me. The book has 'mysteriously' appeared on my list of books to review. I have not ordered the book, bought the book or have even heard of the book. Maybe it's a good book, I do not know, I have not read it and do not intend to.
Any woman who looks at me the way the lady does on the cover of this book makes me run for cover. Really she should powder her nose.
So I can only give it one star. Anymore would show interest, which I do not have.


A Beginner's Guide to Day Trading Online
A Beginner's Guide to Day Trading Online
by Toni Turner
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.79

3.0 out of 5 stars A fair effort, 26 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Toni Turner obviously know her stuff. The problem is there is so much of it in this book on this subject.
I found the information poorly arranged, the graphs difficult in monochrome and quite small in size. In my opinion the book tries to cover too much in a small space which makes for tiresome reading.
The techniques and strategies in the book and most of the other information is available freely on the net so what you are paying for is the privilege of having it all in one place.
So is it worth it? Yes, it probably is.

Have used it for over a year, no trouble at all considering the throwing about it has had. It has seemingly endless memory for text.

For anyone writing fiction - you only think are - until you have read this book. It still helps, even after five full length novels.

3.0 out of 5 stars He is joking?, 12 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Meals great, book great, presentation great. So why only three stars? C'mon Jamie, get real. If like you, you are a highly talented, internationally famous chef, maybe fifteen minutes works, (on the TV show even you have only seconds to spare to finish the meal!) Here you have a gink that takes fifteen minutes to peel a potato, so my timing is more like half an hour. Even my wife who is an excellent cook took twenty minutes on one of the meals.
Fifteen minute meals is a big problem for us mortals mate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the bunch, 21 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have another internet radio bough a year ago. Comparing the performance gives the Squeezebox top rating. I used both on wifi in the same position for a week. The other radio dropped out several times whilst the Squeezebox played on happily.
The Squeezebox is also far quicker and easier to set up than my original radio. Squeezebox also has a led screen which when you get used to it is very useful for sorting albums. The sound is just about OK in the kitchen and bedroom which really is where a radio of this size is made for.
Want an internet radio without too much hassle? Buy the Squeezebox.
