Roadcraft: The Police Driver's Handbook
Roadcraft: The Police Driver's Handbook
by Police Foundation
Edition: Paperback
Price: £16.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Required Reading, 5 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This should be required reading for all drivers. Although it's aimed at professional Police drivers it covers the basics as well as many more advanced driving techniques. An excellent product for anyone wanting to improve their driving, no matter what your level of skill or experience.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Information, Bad Visual Quality, 5 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The information contained in here is good, based on the Police Driver's Course. However there are better, more up-to-date, products that cover the same skills (in more detail) such as Ultimate Driving Craft series by Chris Gilbert, one of the police instructors featured here. The video quality lets this product down massively, it's a very bad transfer from a video format. I wouldn't recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid, 5 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For the money, this is a very sturdy construction. It's sharp and looks like it will last. I've deducted one star for the sheath as it's not up to the standard of the knife, but for a tenner, it's an excellent product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Improved my Driving, 5 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent product which I would recommend for anyone who is serious about improving their driving, no matter what your level experience is. I recently passed my L Test and this helped me, I watched and studied the DVD several times before the test. There's a lot of useful information contained here. Based on what Chris presents here, I changed my gear grip which improved my gear selecting and learned the limit point method of cornering which I actively practice, especially as I live in an area with a lot of rural roads. I also bought the Roadcraft book to accompany this, the book and the DVD complement each other. I look forward to Chris' forthcoming titles.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great ... while it worked, 3 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product was excellent and did exactly the job intended until it snapped in half. The pressure from the FW400 cable connector is too much for this fragile adapter to hold, it feels flimsy and, after a while, it bends and breaks, usually leaving the smaller part in the computer. Great in theory, not in practice. Not recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars She's Got Issues..., 16 Feb 2003
Inspite of being released far too soon after the Tarantino hype, this beats Pulp Fiction and Resevoir Dogs hands down. On the surface it's just a bank robebry film, which semi-explores issues of morality, AIDS, death, drug abuse and prostitution. However, look a little closer and a weaving line of complexity appears which slowly dances through the plot, backed up with some excellent photography, set design and stunning lighting effects, considering the budget.
Personally, I really enjoyed this film, it was both mature and beautiful, exploring issues that not many would have the nerve to. A very intelligent and well though out plot and some excellent sets - a red bank vault?
As with all films of this subtle complexity, I don't think it will be to everyone's taste, but if you liked Donnie Darko, and managed to unravel the sub plot to Mulholland Drive but like a less surreal film, try this one on for size. Films that make you think, now there's an idea?!?!?

5.0 out of 5 stars A Real Beauty (Mac users read this), 23 Oct 2002
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very impressed... Don't let the fact that this is only 50 quid put you off. Mine arrived this morning and I had major reservations, as I'm Mac based - not a problem! As long as you burn your CD-R or CD-RW's as a Files and Folders format, this little beauty will do the rest.
On the downside, there's no display of the name of which track or album you're on, it's all done with numbers, but if you arrange your albums into folders you can't go far wrong and anyway you can't really complain for £50!
No more lugging masses of CD's anywhere, and I've got a fair few, but when you can fit over ten albums on one CD in MP3 format... Also on the plus side, for those of us who regularly buy CD's, it'll play standard CD's as well.
A real little gem. For people who want a quick, affordable, portable MP3 solution and you can't get anymore affordable than this. (The more serious MP3er should consider opting for an Apple iPod.)

5.0 out of 5 stars As long as we're talking shelf life..., 20 Oct 2002
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The late great prophet Bill Hicks. What can you say about a man whose changed so many lives? A friend introduced me to Bill's comedy back in 1998, I'd never laughed so much in my life. But underlying the laughs, is a serious undertone that makes you sit-up and listen, and begin to question your ideals.
Personally, I would fully recommend any of Bill's stuff and 'Totally Bill Hicks' is an excellent place to start, allowing you to find out about Bill's life in the documentary, and then watch probably the greatest show Bill ever did, his last. Be warned though once you listen to Bill, you'll never be the same. Truly a Bodhisattva. I would have loved to hear what Bill made of recent events.

5.0 out of 5 stars Been Caught Listening..., 20 Oct 2002
This review is from: Ritual De Lo Habitual (Audio CD)
This album is worth getting just for the single 'Been Caught Stealing'. From the word go, you get that raw sound that's become the Jane's Addiction trademark. Jane's Addiciton are one of those bands that other's are compared to, their sound is both sweet and sour simultaneously and, in Perry Farrell, a vocalist with a fantastically unique voice.
