The book is not much help at all as many of the things one wants to find out about are not listed in the index, thus requiring one to go through the book to find an answer.

What can I say? It's just a black ink cartridge when all's said and done. Blah blah blah blah blah.

3.0 out of 5 stars Many Errors in printing, 19 Feb 2014

This review is from: The Workhouse (Paperback)
This is the worst example I have ever come across - typos as well as pieces of text that are non-sequiturs. Very poor. Book's content is O.K. though.

Several pieces of this jigsaw delaminated whilst we were doing it for the first time, so wouldn't bother again again

Quantock Hills and Bridgwater (OS Explorer Map Active)

Edition: Map
Price: 9.84

5.0 out of 5 stars Map, 11 Nov 2011
Haven't yet used it but it's just a map with a waterproof covering, to the usual excellent OS standard. Waterproof covering makes it more bulky but it should last forever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin, 11 Nov 2011
This product works correctly for what I wanted - to transfer audio CDs to iTunes on my laptop, thence to my iPod Shuffle. Nothing else to say really.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clever but with drawbacks, 3 Oct 2011
This product definitely proves the point that there'll always be room in my world for real books. My wife has been using it and the facility to change font size is very useful to obviate reading glasses! However, there are several drawbacks. First, you can't just hand it on to a friend when you've finished a book. Secondly, it's not easy to cross refer to an earlier page, as one could with a paper book. Finding where you left off is also not easy if you inadvertently jump a few pages. However, it will come into its own during holidays, provided of course that we can find somewhere to re-charge it.

Charging it at first was not simple. It would not hold a charge and it was only by accident that I found that it was set on wi-fi - very power hungry. Once again, if only manufacturers of modern products would include a simple but comprehensive beginner's user guide, rather than putting the thing on the internet, it would be so much more helpful to many customers. Even finding out how to turn it off required consulting a friend who already used one! What happens if you drop it in the bath? Do the "pages" go curly? There's nothing like the feel of a real book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap but trickier than it should be, 3 Oct 2011
Product is very neat and well made but after hours of trying, I have still not managed to download a podcast. It would be nice if it came with a simple "idiot's" guide. I have therefore used it very little and will have to rely on my daughter's help to try and make it work properly. As usual with so-called "simple" cyber gadgets, this leaves me feeling like a bit of an idiot or dinosaur, neither of which I believe I am!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the Bunch, 23 Sep 2010
Over the last 35 years I have gathered a collection of more than 500 books about smuggling. Many of them regurgitate information that has previously been published and writers frequently repeat the mistakes of earlier authors. What is refreshing about Lawless Coast is that the material is original and is wonderfully woven together, resulting in a book that often reads more like a novel than a non-fiction book - and that's a compliment. Knowing, as I do, quite a lot about the subject, it was gratifying that there were no historical howlers (e.g. referring to "Customs & Excise Officers" more than a century before those two services were merged together!)and the idea of providing separate information panels explaining the roles of the various anti-smuggling forces was inspired. Of the many books I have on local smuggling, this is by far the best. The author is to be warmly congratulated on producing such an interesting book built around one of the most dramatic, violent and tragic incidents in smuggling lore. Last but not least, the fold-out map at the end of the book is an attractive and useful addition, helping the reader to place all of the incidents of the story in context.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lancaster - the absorbing story of an iconic warplane and those who flew it., 14 Feb 2010
I bought this book after reading and thoroughly enjoying the author's book on the Spitfire. Only 150 pages in so far, but the enjoyment level is the same. The material is presented in an interesting way - not too technical but with enough detail to suit a lay person. What would have been useful is some extra in-text line drawings. For example, when the Lancaster's instrument panel and controls are being described, a picture would have improved understanding and visualisation considerably.
