5.0 out of 5 stars perfect, 4 April 2014

This is the perfect phone to get for someone who needs to have a phone but is a bit anti-technology. It has a radio, large display numbers, and a Kevlar-like outer coating.

5.0 out of 5 stars For the anti-feminist, 4 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read this because it came out when I was starting my MBA and I imagined I would be talking about it with my classmates. Was exactly what I expected it to be, a conversation piece. The book is a bit of a self-serving personal promotion for the author, but she makes some valid points-- like how to approach asking for a raise and a mentor. I would recommend it if you are reading from that angle. If you are looking for inspiration, though, I'm not sure you'll find it. She writes from the perspective of years of privilege.

Quite inexpensive and work fine. Not the most amazing sound but good value for the money spent. Instructions are well written and concise. Worked with an iPhone and an Android and a computer. No problems.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally!, 30 Mar 2014

We read this book and some academic articles about helping our baby "do it's nights". I liked the narrative style of this book although some might find it rambly. Our 4 month old daughter is currently sleeping 8 hours a night.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ridiculous, 30 Mar 2014

This review is from: The Elements of Style (Paperback)
If you have an internet connection and a brain don't get this. I can get better information from Grammar Girl. Get the original "Elements of Style" instead; it's much better.

This is the same stuff one would get from the vet so it works fine. Very important to protect from ticks so I think it's money well spent.

Fits my 6' husband and baby just fine. We got a standard stand from Ikea and just had to tie a knot in each end and it fit great.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is NOT for an S3 Mini., 30 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm sure anyone can tell by the title that it's for an S3 and not an S3 mini. But I actually thought those were the same thing so I ordered it. The case is quite nice. It is stylish although it is not made of genuine leather. The company was very prompt to offer me a partial discount even though it was my mistake in ordering the wrong one. The same case for a mini is on American Amazon, but not .co.uk.

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful for anyone writing research papers, 17 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have to read this book for school and I can't say that I'm enjoying it very much. It is well written but a bit of a snoozer. However, the anecdotal tips have definitely given me something to think about. I would recommend this book to any researcher who has to write their findings, in any discipline. It is a little bit more detailed than I ever wanted to get on this topic. I'm in the middle right now and it's soooo dry. Saying things like, "make sure you know what you're asking about before going to the library" seems trivial. However, such a good point don't you think? This book is full of that stuff. It's kind of like Research for Dummies and then a bunch of technical BS. The authors seem very in tune with their audience and their writing has just the right tone. I do feel like they address the expert and novice but tend to skip over the seasoned but not quite expert researcher.
