5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic idiosyncratic guide to a beautiful City, 8 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As an ex Londoner , now living near Naples and enjoying exploring this wonderful city I have to disagree with the negative reviews here. The book was Richard Lambs last project , published after his death and the idiosyncrasies that others refer to are undeniably there - the editing has been left almost as if this was a draft he had been working on and adds to the charm of the book for me . The writing style is wonderfully accessible and accurately captures the atmosphere and of the city - okay there are no illustrations or maps but his descriptions of the streets and the suggested routes to explore are wonderfully simple to follow and accurate - although thankfully many of the monuments he refers to as difficult to find open are now much more open to the public. His local knowledge of places to eat , get shirts made , or find the best neapolitan hidden treasure are a joy. I have a collection of over 30 books now on the history and art of this great city and this is one of my very favourites .. Love its quirkiness and you will not be disappointed - buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars BRIILLANTdesign and value, 30 May 2013

Great value for money . sturdy and beautifully constructed. the big advantage is the flexible foam interior which means it is suitable for any size knife. I bought it for my set of 5 Japanese kitchen knives and it complements them brilliantly. The block is also sufficiently big that I can also fit two additional large kitchen knives into it. far better than the ones with precut slots that dont fit your knife collection. Amazing value for money and looks great on the work surface


Cambridge Preparation for the TOEFL® Test Book with CD-ROM
Cambridge Preparation for the TOEFL® Test Book with CD-ROM

1.0 out of 5 stars MAC USERS BEWARE, 22 Nov. 2012
If you want to run this course using a Mac you will not be able to unless you have a very old Mac with PowerPC. I e-mailed the company and their technical department told me that the CD rom has not been updated with the book ( even though they say this edition is 2012) and is not compatible with the new generation MACs.

This is not good enough, and I still await a reply to my complaint to Cambridge Publications. Sloppy service from a normally reliable publishing house.

1.0 out of 5 stars BEWARE MAC USERS, 22 Nov. 2012
Be very careful if you order TOEFL materials and want to run the CD Rom on a Mac. The materials for this book DO NOT RUN on modern macs , only the old macs with Power PC.

Why the CD roms have not been upgraded to run on the new generation macs with the reprint is just sloppy lazy customer service. It is the same with the Cambridge book on this site.

1.0 out of 5 stars do not waste your money, 24 May 2011

This review is from: Vesuvius 2012 (Paperback)
Whatever you do - do not buy this book . The prose is stilted and reads like a GCSE essay - the treatment of what should be a gripping plot - the next eruption of vesuvio which is now due should be able to generate excitement - but this book fails on all counts - a vanity publishing if ever I read one. It also fails to capture the area in which I live and love. Avoid.
