3.0 out of 5 stars Introduction to the Ancient Greeks, 14 May 2015

I had such expectations of this book after reading the reviews, unfortunately it was as dull as ditch water. If you were doing a degree course it would be great but a page turner it is not.

3.0 out of 5 stars WD TV Critique., 10 May 2014

This came neatly boxed complete with leads, unfortunately it requires an HDMI lead of a type not supplied. The supplied leads maybe suitable for some TVs. Setting connecting up was straight forward but that is as for as the instructions took me. You have to down-load the manual which tells you everything you don't need to know to get you up and running. I'm still struggling to get access. I'm waiting for my teenage grandson to arrive and show me how to access the key-board to input my password. It might be OK but don't ask me. W.D.

4.0 out of 5 stars A spy among friends., 25 Mar. 2014

I can't make up my mind whether to give it four or five stars. An excellent read; clearly well researched and presented in a readable style. The content is mind boggling; how high grade civil servants could carry on as they did and continue to be employed. A group of drunken shirt lifters and skirt lifters whose conduct should have been a sackable offence when first noticed. The expertise of MI5 and MI6 seems to have left a lot to be desired. I only hope they have improved. I am sure that many of the Cambridge ring must at times have had nightmares knowing they were supporting such a failed political philosophy. If they did, it was what they deserved.
As a down side the book drops so many names it is sometime hard not to be confused. I found my self back checking quite a lot.
A very good read, just what a book should be. W. Duff.

5.0 out of 5 stars A remote replacement that actually works., 7 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My Polaroid TV remote gave up the ghost and a spare was not obtainable. I thought at the price this one was worth a try. I was delighted when I first switched on to find it worked without extensive programming. Not all the functions are replicated but all that I need are there. Perhaps if you are a bit of a Nerd you could get it to do more, but I am happy. It is also particularly well made and looks good design-wise. WD

A bit of a cheat for those whishing to expand their knowledge of the journal. The content is just a selection of the daily entries, however the resume at the beginning of the chapters is excellent in setting the context.

Well researched but slightly on the academic style in presentation. If you are interested in WW.II analysis this is up your street. WD

4.0 out of 5 stars Adequate for designed purpose., 11 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The design concept is good but it is a bit flimsy in construction.. The pegs are easily detatched from the board when taking the tools off the board,
The board is more than adequate for storing a lot of tools and it is very neat. They provide a lot of pegs and tyhe balance is OK. WD
