4.0 out of 5 stars Queen Victoria's Gene: Haemophilia and the Royal Family, D. M. Potts, 4 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Actually, I like it a lot. Amazon can put ****1/2. This book is a credible account of the facts concerning the European royal haemophiliacs and of the appearance and disappearance of the gene in one family. Just what I wanted. The author's skills are, true enough, more medical and forensic than historical, thence the missing 1/2 star. But the balance is predominantly positive.
I wish D.M. Potts would tackle the gene of the madness of George III!

5.0 out of 5 stars Klaus Tennsdtedt: The Complete Mahler Recordings, 4 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These recordings are an illumination. I also have the 10 symphonies conducted by Haitink and am delighted with the contrast. I love the authenticity Tennstedt brings to Mahler, even if it is some times Mahler's and some times Tennstedt's.

I had been searching for this dictionary since 2002 but without benefice of a computer. Thank you, Amazon. Thank you too, Ms Lubensky, where ever you are. Idioms are the soul of a language and the despair of the translator; you have delivered us the philosopher's stone.

2.0 out of 5 stars Requests the Pleasure: 1939-1954, Joyce Grenfell, 4 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was disappointed that nearly all the tracks are songs. I was looking for Joyce Grenfell's sketches but wasn't able to identify which Grenfell CDs on offer contained what I was looking for.

This CD is what I expected. It arrived in time. I like Victor Borge. What is not to like, right?
