2.0 out of 5 stars Nice lock but easily broken., 5 Jun 2009
This review is from: Abus Centuro 860 (Sports)
Its a nice lock but its easily broken.

My bike was stolen after someone cut through this lock. The lock was left behind so I could see that they'd cut though it. Do a quick search on youtube and you'll see how easy it is to cut through with a pair of bolt croppers. That said, even the more expensive locks don't take much to break.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 8 Aug 2008
A very good book. Its been written to be read from cover to cover and its a joy to do so. There are a lot of practice questions and task to do, which means you have to put the effort in but you will learn a lot.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not very good, 20 April 2008
I've had the foam roller for about 2 months and it has already lost its shape. I'd recommend going for a brand name, maybe the reebok version.

2.0 out of 5 stars A dry unmemorable read, 12 Dec 2007
I found the book to be dry and it failed to make the subject of investing interesting. It covers a lot of financial products, providing reasonable detail in terms of the numbers, but its dull. The chapters don't flow very well and I found myself struggling to recall what I had just read.

I wouldn't recommend this as a introductory book to investing because it simply doesn't make the subject interesting like the motley fool series of books manages to. But it does give a certain amount of detail, that may make it useful as a reference text for the amateur investor.

4.0 out of 5 stars Main ideas in the book, 4 Dec 2004
This book contains some great ideas, even if it is not greatly written. The book is pragmatic, giving ideas you can use every day - even if some of them do take a bit of practice before they become habit. The main ideas the book covers are
1) Collection Habit - how to collect all your "to do's" and why it makes such a difference if you collect all of them and not just most of them
2) Next Action - the idea of always deciding on the next action to take on a piece of work, the moment it comes into your life.
3) Outcome Focusing - this covers a very practical and productive method for envisioning and planning all the projects in your life, so you can start to make them happen before you start stressing about them.
The book also gives a few interesting insights into why you may feel stressed and what to do about it.
Highly recommended.
