Q & A Revision Guide: Company Law 2012 and 2013 (Law Questions & Answers)
Q & A Revision Guide: Company Law 2012 and 2013 (Law Questions & Answers)
by Steve Judge
Edition: Paperback
Price: 12.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Handy revision aid, 15 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found this a good aid when revising for the exam. The chapters were clearly laid out, having about 4 sections per chapter. Usually a mix of problem and essay style sections. For the latter, these were logically laid out giving the the key cases where appropriate and also mentioning how recent legislative changes might have effected these.

It was actually a lovely necklace and the pearls looked excellent. Unfortunately the thread connect was of poor quality and broke soon after arrival.

5.0 out of 5 stars A high spirited Imperial requeim, 15 Aug 2013
There has always been a keen debate on the pros/cons of the British Empire, especially as it was shrinking into the shadows. Some are erudite balanced works focusing on highly academic fields which aim to carefully crafted a conclusion. This book is not one of these.
It is a highly biased, pro-Imperial, wide-ranging: revolving on the (mostly) men who crafted the greatest of all empires. This is old-school boy's own adventures of a time when the maxim-gun, a classical education and the Bible were enough to carve out a protectorate. Some are still household names, such as Lawrence of Arabia - the impact of his work is still being felt in the convolutions in the Arab world today. On that basis, recommended reading.


Medical Ethics: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions)
Medical Ethics: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions)
by Tony Hope
Edition: Paperback
Price: 5.59

4.0 out of 5 stars Grounding on the basics, 15 Aug 2013
This is a well written book which explores the main issues of medicial ethics: euthanasia, care costs etc. He demostrates this using thoughful thought experiences in medical dilemmas. As well it gives a consise but highly understandable grounding on the use and ill-use of logic and the composition of arguments. However it is also imbalance as the author has a base permissive world-view point, hence the starting point is the optimial freedom from the individual, be it underage child or healthy adult and does not engage with the commutiary aspect of medical discusions or assign as much rights to people at the end points of the age spectrum. Still a worthwhile read

5.0 out of 5 stars First class, 13 Aug 2013
This review is from: The Paper Chase (Kindle Edition)
This is a novel focused the first year of American students attending a prestigious law school. It is both time-bound and timeless. The former
as it was written in the early 70s, hence tied to the social mores of the time and the pre-advent of the IT age. The latter as it shows the
stresses and strains of pupils who go too far in a mono-focused pursuit of an academic goal to the exclusion of personal achievements. So is
a both a cautionary tale and a valid introduction for life as a law student.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Goth, 12 Aug 2013
An excellent all round introductory book on the Gothic and its influence on the modern world. Given the wide
ranging scope; from the fall of Rome, European Catholicism, Architecture, and the "Sisters of Mercy" - the author
does a fine job of summarising the main points and how each interconnects. The chosen diagrams also aid in clarifying
the concepts. Hopefully this will spurn an interest in this period.


The Time of Singing (William Marshal)
The Time of Singing (William Marshal)
by Elizabeth Chadwick
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Medieval modes and manners, 11 Aug 2013
A well researched and believable novel set in the time of the Plantagenets. The characters both male/female are ones that can be related to, despite the gulf of years. It is set in a time of deep Catholic faith and base political treachery where the skill-sets of an armoured knight are of naught compared to an ill-judged remark in the court of Henry II. Not only recommended, the appendix at the end lists various sites which are still extant so as to better hold fast to the medieval period.


On Conscience (Bioethics & Culture)
On Conscience (Bioethics & Culture)
Price: 7.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Clarity on Consience, 11 Aug 2013
This text builds from the classic philosophic position, Catholic theology and contemporary political events to create a contextualisation of conscience in the World. Not merely as a prop to the ever changing whims of an individualised relativism but to a truer and deeper understanding based on the natural law percepts and in service to a universal truth. This is written in an engaging and clear tone and the import of message belies the petite tome that it is contained in.


Quick Win Digital Marketing
Quick Win Digital Marketing
by Annmarie Hanlon
Edition: Paperback
Price: 10.01

3.0 out of 5 stars Fair market, 10 Aug 2013
This is rather a testimony on how fast the digital landscape moves and how easy it is to become dated.
Some of the information is still current on the major marketing sites, but a lot of the core is fairly basic material
that could be picked up from some resource on the web. However, price wise it is good value and the Q&A format
leans itself to easy assimilation of the main points.


Who Controls the Internet?: Illusions of a Borderless World
Who Controls the Internet?: Illusions of a Borderless World
by Jack Goldsmith
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 16.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Caught in the net, 9 Aug 2013
This is a clear and insightful book, which clarifies the legal and IT maze that exists behind each website. It starts by showing
how companies initially hostile to State intervention had turned and begun actively assisting in the censorship of the Internet. It details both the soft and hard doctrines of State coercion that turned the dream of a libertarian self-regulated global community into one bounded by national geographically sourced local laws. Well recommended to understand the hows an why you are reading this webpage.
