3.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic ankle brace / look out for delivery time, 6 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Aircast A60 Ankle Brace (Sports)
The brace itself is fantastic - a superb support for the ankle. My husband is recovering from a severe ligament strain and it is proving invaluable in the rehab process.
Re the company: the item is very competitively priced and arrived when promised at order confirmation. However that date was something as a shock as the company does not in my view make it clear that the item ships from the US on a 10-15 day delivery time

Packaging excellent

2.0 out of 5 stars just enough to keep the interest, 5 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm not convinced by Rowling's attempts to move beyond Potter. Both in her own name and under a pseudonym the stories are contrived and there is an over dependence upon the use of offensive language.

As a children's writer she is compelling for adults and children alike. After two books in a different genre I will have to be persuaded to try a third

4.0 out of 5 stars Very thought provoking, 29 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book is written from the perspective that withdrawal is somewhat inevitable. That said there is a presentation of both sides of the argument that is very thought provoking.

Perhaps the most telling part of the book is that the attitude towards Europe in Britain is largely conditioned by the disingenuous presentation of Europe by politicians of all shades that has stoked a specific perception of what the country was opting into.

3.0 out of 5 stars If you want the Challenger detail buy the original, 29 Aug. 2013

I was looking for a quick overview of challenger brand thinking. For me this book fell a little short of the mark in that respect

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good way to improve, 29 Aug. 2013

A decent story .. German that is contemporary and a little stretching and some basic questions to confirm understanding

My only regret is that I use a Kindle App on my iPad and therefore don't have a German / English dictionary fully intergrated

A History of the World

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating overview of history, 4 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I guess most nations teach history from a self-centric perspective. This gives a perspective that can be biased and ignores whole periods.
What I enjoyed about Andrew Marr's approach is that the book is certainly not British or Western centric. It gives focus to ancient cultures in other parts of the world and gives a genuine global perspective.
A look at the period of colonisation and empire (and not just British) highlights why a lot of the political issues of today exist at all
Finally his thoughts on the immediate future are also both interesting and provocative
A very enjoyable, entertaining and at the same time well researched and informative read

4.0 out of 5 stars Absorbing, 13 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ninepins (Kindle Edition)
This is an easy read and at times it seems that the outcome is somewhat inevitable. However there are a number of twists and turns and finally it was not quite what I expected.

The story has very human insights and that gives it a real life feel to it. It is quite possible to imagine being in the same position and then find yourself wondering what you'd do
