The Fall of Paris: The Siege and the Commune 1870-71
The Fall of Paris: The Siege and the Commune 1870-71
Price: 8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Grand history including the people, 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not only a fascinating insight into a much forgotten time in French history but also a glimpse into the Bolshevik coup.

The least engaging of his three books on Franco-German wars but still an excellent work of history. The Fall of Paris is the best.

Surprisingly dull. In fact I'd forgotten it was on my kindle till I got the prompt to review it from Amazon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well balanced, 25 Sep 2013
Part two of his trilogy and the second best for the layman. A good balance between the human and the military detail.


The Anatomy of Stretching
The Anatomy of Stretching
by Brad Walker
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 11 Aug 2013
Really well laid out. Good index of exercises by sport so you can find just the right stretches for you. So good I bought it twice when I mislaid my copy, knowing that I could give it to someone once it turned up.

This book just peters out. It could have finished before or after to much the same effect. Not his greatest.

Great when it's working but prone to kicking you off network. Even my deeply technical friend is having problems with it.

Delillo was recommended by a friend. Whilst I enjoyed it I can't say I found the last 20% very compelling.

5.0 out of 5 stars Retro brilliance, 4 Jun 2013
Old-fashioned though they seem I use these for long-term planning with my team. Away from the distractions of iPhone, laptop, BlackBerry we can focus on the vision and goals.

4.0 out of 5 stars Appeals to kinesthetic people, 3 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love the idea, old fashioned though it is to go analogue! I have so much data on so many electronic systems but these allow me to distill it to the bare essentials for strategic, long-term planning and review.

It would have been a 5-star review, had the system arrived with a starter pack of T-Cards. The description is unclear in that regard because it describes them as "kits" and the photo suggests you get a full set so a disappointing start.
