3.0 out of 5 stars All good for a while, 13 Dec. 2014
Good while it lasted (2 yrs) - now useless


No Title Available

5.0 out of 5 stars best cordless mouse I've owned, 16 Aug. 2012
Had a Cherry Life Nano Wireless Laser Mobile Mouse M-300R which was good but the right click switch broke after 18 months - guaranteed for 5 yrs so it was replaced but I then lost the micro USB sender and they are fixed to each mouse - so bought this mouse at an airport when going away on business - smaller than the Cherry which is a bonus if travelling a lot and works just as well if not better - works fantastic on any surface - not cheap but then I put it on expenses anyway but I'm just about to buy one for my son so in my opinion it is worth the money

2.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointed, 31 Dec. 2010
Not quite what I expected; I bought this based on a bit of a whim, together with a quick glance at other reviews. Not enough detail for me, too much waffling and repitition. As the Amazon reviews states "...It might not turn out to be a lasting classic....". I have immense respect for what Geoffrey and his fellow pilots did but that doesn't automatically make him a good author. Buy The Last Enemyinstead

1.0 out of 5 stars Get a book - Don't get this one, 27 Dec. 2010
A disjointed, unstructured collection of the author's (mostly irrelevant) anecdotes, references and quotations from other books, interspersed with wholly ineffective and pointless "Personal Profiles".

Quite frankly a complete waste of money and time; the latter persevering more than half way through the soulless drivel, hoping it would improve.

I can recommend Michael McGannon's, "Urban Warrior's Book of Solutions..." as a much more enlightening and thought provoking read.

The Urban Warrior's Book of Solutions: Staying Healthy, Fit and Sane in the Business Jungle (Financial Times Series)

3.0 out of 5 stars avoid for older children, 28 Nov. 2010
Although the principle if this book is good and it is nicely illustrated and easy to read, I'd say it's more suited to children under 10. It was not suited to my 13 year old son (we'd visited the message of the book some time previously from another source) - what he needs is an easier to read version of How To Stop Worrying And Start Living (Dale Carnegie), which incidentally is a fantastic book, although not written/presented in the way my son will read it on his own yet.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for me, 29 Nov. 2009
I bought this having read Mark Forster's book - Do it tomorrow. Allen's style ogf writing didn't work for me and I found the book tedious to tthe point I didn't read it all. My suggestion is to buy Forster's book first

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it Now!!!, 20 Nov. 2009
this is a brilliant book - IT WORKS!! I've just read the book for the second time (after lapsing to norm last time) and in conjunction with the Autofocus system (from Mark Forster's website) and a few enhancements/modifications of my own I'm back on track - this book is so easy to read (i.e. read this first before GTD!) Go on buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars the perfect book for helping others understand your child, 14 Sept. 2008
as others have said, this book clearly and concisely summarises how your child behaves differently - we originally got this from the library and as I read it for the first time it was as if is had been written especially to describe my 11 yr old son - have just ordered a copy to send around the family

5.0 out of 5 stars Top stuff for the price, 26 July 2006
Great! I wanted something which I could use on my motorbike on those long boring motorway journeys and was advised to go for Etymotic ER6i or Shure EC2 - I really couldn't justify the spend on either of those so went for these.

NOTE! you do have to get them fitted "properly" otherwise the base is really poor - BUT...get them "right in" and they are great - work fine on the bike i.e. not total isolation but enough to be able to hear the music okay.

For the money they are excellent.

Like I said YOU HAVE TO GET THEM FITTED RIGHT - I've copied the following from a previous review which tell you how:

How do you fit them.

Well first of all try the various sizes of rubber earbuds until you find the right size for your ear. It took me several goes.

When fitting try the following;

Take your left hand over your head to grab top of your right ear with the left hand's fingers.

Pull the top of right ear up to open up your ear canal

Put your ear phone in while you hold up your ear as above.

While you hold in the ear phone, let go the ear held by left fingers.

Keep pressing the earphone in place with your right hand for a few seconds to let everything settle down as this help the ear "grip" the earphone bud and hold it in place

Do the same thing for the other side .... just use the right hand over the head instead..

If its a good fit you can tell as if you tap the earphone (gently) it feels as if the noise is inside your head. You need to get a good seal to give the right sound with decent bass.

5.0 out of 5 stars ACE!, 27 Feb. 2002
This review is from: Re-Animator [VHS] (VHS Tape)
This is an ACE! film. I first saw it as a student over in late 80's where we used to get free vidoes each week from the local video shop. We though "oh what's this crap?" then watched it....then watched it again.......then watched it again.....ACE!
