4.0 out of 5 stars Good performance lift!, 15 Feb. 2012
I am certain that this book has the capacity to lift performance either at an individual or whole school level.

5.0 out of 5 stars Winter's essence trapped and bottled by Sting!, 11 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Listening to "Cold Song" I literally felt like I was freezing to death! "Balulalow" is one of the most inventive Sting melodies in a long time (using a great old Scottish tune). I must admit that as the years advance on Sting, the more inventive he becomes. Bring forth a Summer (Sumner!) album next please (excuse the pun!). An easy 5 stars for Sting's Winter wonderland sound-scape.

5.0 out of 5 stars A courageous effort from an old musical master!, 11 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Many true Sting fans will know Sting wanted to make this album for over 20 years, thus its seasoned well in his soul for a great many years. A great CD for late night feasting, lovemaking or just doing the knitting! I'd love to see Sting do a CD of Shetland folk songs...(keep up the courageous streak Mr Sumner!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Heavy and underrated but Dummies still hit their PEAK album on this one!, 3 Jan. 2012
This review is from: A Worm's Life (Audio CD)
I'll say this again: Heavy and underrated but Dummies still hit their PEAK album on this one!
For those who truly love the Dummies, this statement will ring crystal clear.
It was all uphill for the Dummies to this album, and unfortunately a slow decline afterwards.
Still, a very easy 5 star album rating for me. A superb joy of quirkiness to own!

4.0 out of 5 stars Brave old world--A Lynchian treasure!, 30 Dec. 2011
This review is from: Crazy Clown Time (Audio CD)
Its a brave move for a 65 year old man to make an electronic album! Buy hey, this is David Lynch the movie genius right! I do love his Moby-like voice distortions on "Good Day Today" & "Strange and Unproductive Thinking". The opening track with Karen O works exceedingly well too. Most of the other slower tracks are all filler as far as I'm concerned. I feel Lynch works better at a dance pace than a blues one. If he did a complete album of just electronic dance tunes it would definitely be all killer no filler--no doubt about that! (I want to leave this review on a positive note--I don't want the Log Lady from Twin Peaks to visit me!). Well done David. A Lynchian treasure. 4/5.

5.0 out of 5 stars Only his first! Noel will age like a fine wine...just like Paul Weller did!, 6 Dec. 2011
The former Oasis man now follows in the solo footsteps of the Mod father Paul Weller. I think Noel will by his third album hit the "Wildwood" maturity like Paul Weller did. A fine first outing, but the best is yet to come as Sinatra once said. Bring it on Noel! We salute you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Go girls! Better than The Hangover Part 1 & 2 combined!, 4 Dec. 2011
Being a man saying this is weird! Bridesmaids is better than The Hangover Part 1 & 2 combined! Its crude like some reviewers say, but VERY FUNNY! Melissa McCarthy (the fat one!) is a GREAT actress and is easily the funniest character. Bring on Bridesmaids 2 ASAP!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Terribly written...but with a redeeming end!, 9 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I totally agree with the first reviewer of this book. The "price pulse" theory is terribly written and very hard to understand??? But saying that the last few chapters "The Trader at Work" are redeeming...but not enough to raise the book above a 1 star.

1.0 out of 5 stars Tedious, dry and boring!, 18 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is one of the most tediously dry and boring technical trading books I have ever read--Period. Save yourself the money and simply Wikipedia 'Elliott Wave Principle'.

The Society of Technical Analysts (STA) should be ashamed this book is on their reading list!

5.0 out of 5 stars *****Best movie twist of 2010 so far=5 stars*****, 13 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Book of Eli [DVD] (DVD)
I'd agree with most reviewers that this is an average movie, but, the twist at the end is the best movie twist I've seen in 2010 so far (no one in my family guessed it!). So, its worth spending your money to buy the DVD for this alone!. I merit it 5 stars on this twist alone. Simple. *****ENJOY!*****
