5.0 out of 5 stars love them !, 25 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are my second pair of Skechers shape-ups,and they are fab! (The previous pair just wore out.) These little black numbers look good, especially with black soles (have had some admiring comments) and are soooo comfortable; I have dodgy ankles and knees. Possibly little known fact - they are also quite grippy in snow and ice. Who on earth needs a DVD to increase the price when buying shoes???? And for the customer disappointed with the "exercising" hype - note the careful phraseology "may help" etc - if you want a gym workout, go down the gym ! These shoes are made for very comfortable - and stylish - walking....

5.0 out of 5 stars Kindle product....., 16 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this for my gorgeous new Kindle.... Seems OK, though struggling with the concept of "how do I write on it", being a techno-Luddite. Obviously cheaper than its paper counterpart, and more environmentally friendly; I'm sure it's just a question of time......

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what it says on the tin, 16 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My new Kindle is gorgeous, just wanted something to protect it when I take it on holiday.... this case is exactly right. And there's enough room to put the PC connecting cable in, if you really need to take it with you..... The red/black contrast is just right !

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant !, 16 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I teach French, I love France (and most of the French). Bought this for an English friend who lives there. It is both educational and very funny. This guy knows his stuff, and writes in such an English style... Not at all anti-French, just fair and unputdownable.......

You don't have to be an adult to benefit from this book. This is the 3rd copy I have bought, so it must be good ! Excellent for anyone struggling with spelling, dyslexic or not. I have bought one for myself as a dyslexia specialist teacher, and two for pupils who are still at secondary school.

1.0 out of 5 stars Misleading and disappointing, 16 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The first thing I bought for my new Kindle. Not much on Fuerteventura (where we are going) and rather too much on a Spanish language guide - I teach Spanish and don't need a basic language guide!

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin !, 11 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought these in green (don't do pink!). Great - they do definitely exercise the calf muscles - cannot fail as 1) they are heavy and 2) they roll so far down at the back, your calf muscles are definitely stretched. Perfect fit - I don't usually buy shoes from the Internet (in fact, I dont' usually buy shoes at all!), Not sure about some of the claims in the video, but definitely worth the money !

5.0 out of 5 stars Mood-booster for the winter, 3 Nov 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fantastic product ! Does exactly what it says on the tin. And you only use it for a few days at a time. Light and portable, I have it on for 15 mins while we have breakfast, I've noticed a difference in my mood. May only be psychological, but who cares ! Definitely worth the investment as winter closes in.

5.0 out of 5 stars fascinating read !, 14 Jan 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this as a colleague's "Secret Santa", and realised it was so good I bought one for myself. Not just the reference book it appears to be, it is actually very absorbing ! Loads of cultural as well as linguistic information from around the globe.
