Richard II (The RSC Shakespeare)
Richard II (The RSC Shakespeare)
by William Shakespeare
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.61

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 9 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased the RSC edition in anticipation of seeing David Tennant in Stratford and I found it the most enlightening version of Richard II that I have read. The introduction puts this play into historical context and reinforces how daring Shakespeare's themes were at the end of the Elizabethan era.

The explanatory notes at the foot of every page add depth to each speech, filling in gaps in understanding of Shakespearian English.

This book is perfect for all that enjoy Shakespeare and of or those that would like to try.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as I expected., 5 Nov 2011
When using these in a quite room they are fantastic. The sound far out strips my Sennheiser 300's in range and the bass is great.

Where they fall down is when in a noisy environment, such as an airplane or the train/tube. Although they stay in place very well when at the gym or out for a run, the ambient noise overpowers the volume. So I have reverted back to my Sennheisers for outdoor use, which is a bit of a shame considering the price!

Uninhibited, Robust, and Wide-Open: A Free Press for a New Century (INALIENABLE RIGHTS)
Uninhibited, Robust, and Wide-Open: A Free Press for a New Century (INALIENABLE RIGHTS)
by Lee C. Bollinger
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £14.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth a read, 17 Dec 2010
This is a thoughtful and well reasoned examination of free speach and freedom of the press. One must, however, have a basic understanding of First Amendment case law to get the most out of Dr. Bollinger's work. Many Europeans will think that this is another case of American's imposing our own ideals on the world, but in this case Bollinger makes a strong case for why an absolute freedom of the press is important to global human rights. Additionally this book is worth a read considering on going debates over WikiLeaks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Live CD, 26 Jun 2010
This is one of the best live albums that I've ever purchased. David Lindley is a fantastic string instrumentalist and makes Jackson Browne's songs come alive! The version of These Days alone is worth the purchase of this album, Luz Casol has one of the most enchanting voices I've ever heard!

5.0 out of 5 stars Please read this book, 15 Mar 2010
EB Sledge's memoir of his combat experiences in the Pacific Theater of World War II is something that everyone should read to understand the horror of combat.

1.0 out of 5 stars About to return my 2nd machine, 28 Feb 2010
I should have listened to the other reviews on this machine, but I've had Krups machines in the past and found them very good. This one, however, is poorly made. My first one leaked on my first cup of espresso, but at least the filter coffee worked. The one I am about to return stopped making filter coffee this morning. Please heed the advice in these reviews and never buy this Krups machine!

5.0 out of 5 stars Paddlin Out, 16 Sep 2006
I've just seen the video for Bama Breeze and I am convinced that JB's putting together some of his best stuff since the late 70's. This one is going to be a must have for all Parrotheads, mines already on order!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Beach House on the Moon, 10 Sep 2006
This review is from: Beach House on the Moon (Audio CD)
This is not one of JB's best albums. There are some good songs on the disc and a must have for all Parrotheads, but it is not a CD that I would use to convert anyone over to our way of thinking.
