The Winner Effect: How Power Affects Your Brain
The Winner Effect: How Power Affects Your Brain
Price: £4.63

5.0 out of 5 stars Really interesting., 27 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I haven't read this sort of thing before - but since reading and loving it went on to buy The Hubris Syndrome and will look at more stuff in the same vein. It relates the physical affects power can have on the brain by mixing science with actual examples of people who have seemingly been affected. (Think Stalin, Hitler and even Thatcher, Blair) Although I suspect no-one has had their brain examined for said affects!! I guess you could say it's a hypothesis mostly. But really fascinating stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars It works., 29 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After just a little bit of 'getting used it them', I can say that these pasty makers are fine. Sometimes at first the pastry sticks as you press the two pieces together and won't come away from the plastic, but this is just a little teething problem that can be solved by; making sure the pastry is still cool and maybe slightly floury if it is very short (i.e. contains a lot of fat) and also, by making the pressing together and pulling apart of the plastic pieces a short sharp motion. I found that bought pastry worked more easily that homemade.
All in all, worth having, especially if you are making a batch for the freezer or a party.
However, one thing needs to be said, this is not a piece of kit especially made for making Cornish Pasties. Cornish Pasties are, in the main, a bit bigger than this. The diameter here is about 6 inches (I haven't actually measured it) and Cornish Pasties are normally a diameter of 9 inches. That's fine, my husband eats two instead of one! And with the three sizes, and the price being so low, I'm more than happy to have this set in my kitchen to use for party food as well as pasties.

4.0 out of 5 stars just a lovely feel good go-for-it little book, 11 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Anything You Want (Kindle Edition)
I ordered this on Kindle and read it in an hour or so. We've always been self employed in our little way and are now planning another chapter in our lives and setting up another business. Somehow this little book hit the spot. He writes with humility, honesty and a clear understanding of life and work and how to get that so elusive balance. If you want a warm honest account of someone who started and then sold an excellent business but never lost touch of the real meaning of work and why we do it. Invest the princely sum of nearly nothing and read this. I don't think you'll have cause to regret it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the box!, 7 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I needed (wanted?) a stand mixer which did just that - mix. I didn't want a liquidiser/blender/pasta maker. So with an excellent price I took a chance and bought the Andrew James Stand Mixer based on the reviews and the price. It has proved excellent for the following reasons;

The bread doughs/cake batters have been perfectly made.
The machine itself is compact but makes a large quantity.
It is not in any way noisier than I would have expected.
The beaters are very quickly and easily attached (push and twist - not screw-on as in what I guess were the earlier models).
The new flexible beater means that no mixture is left around the bowl during mixing, even when making a smaller cake (A 7" Victoria Sandwich).
I have not needed to scrape down the bowl during mixing.
It is easy to remove the bowl while the beaters are still attached to the machine.
It is easy to add ingredients while it is mixing.

What more could I want!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Quality, 31 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as a present and was really pleased with it. The weight and thickness of the glass as well as the really beautiful shape made it a lovely thing to have at the table. A real quality item. Looks larger than it seems in the picture. The decanting of the wine was straightforward, the bottle easy to position in the decanter, and only taking a minute or so to decant. I know it will get used.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to fit., 9 Jun 2012

This item was the exact match for the existing keyboard on my laptop. I followed a short 'you tube' clip on how to change keyboards, and, after just a few minutes, it was up and running again.

3.0 out of 5 stars AS level french students book, 7 July 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent book for home study with very relevant modules which will be a help to those people living in France and looking to improve their conversation and grammar. The cd rom which accompanies it is clear and helpful BUT it is not the cd rom that relates to the modules in the book. For this, you need to buy the AS level French Teacher's book (at least, I'm guessing that is where the cd rom related to the modules is). The student book has a cd rom but it is for independent work not related to the book modules.
