1.0 out of 5 stars The other reviewer is right - it doesn't reflect Spencer, 13 May 2011
I'd just like to add that I have to agree with the views expressed by the other reviewer that awareded only one star. I too have read much of Spencer's autobiography (I have the first editions) and can confirm that the author is simply wrong. I was left disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's OK, but not as readable as other books in the O'Reilly series, 17 Jun. 2010
It's an OK reference book, but it's quite unreadable. Other books in the series I find I am able to sit in the bath and read them almost cover-to-cover. Perhaps the author should read up on "Writing readable books"...


Rules of Vengeance

1.0 out of 5 stars The factual errors and inaccuracies help evaporate any suspense, 17 Jun. 2010
This review is from: Rules of Vengeance (Paperback)
As a previous reviewer has already written, this book is full of factual errors and inaccuracies. Not a great thriller... I had to give up after about 70 pages.

5.0 out of 5 stars An accurate depiction of comprehensive education in modern Britain, 24 Mar. 2010
This is a book that needed to be written - it is also one that needs to be read. It's the story of comprehensive education in modern Britain. Depressing though it is, it also begins to reveal what has gone wrong: a complete lack of discipline and rejection of traditional teaching methods. Good on Frank for taking the time to write this and put the story out there. It's a shame that those people who need to read it the most (the educationalists, civil servants, politicians - and anyone who actually votes) are likely to write it off as some sort of 'overly simplistic' account that doesn't 'make use of evidence' (i.e. expensive academic studies that show very little) and is nothing but 'judgemental elitism'.

1.0 out of 5 stars Does not fit the Canon Ixus 75, 8 April 2008
The case is fine... so long as your camera is smaller than the Canon Ixus 75. I simply could not fit my Ixus 75 in, so I will be returning this case. Annoying, since Amazon recommended it to me when I added the Ixus 75 to my cart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent macroeconomics textbook, 30 Oct. 2006
Just thought I'd add my thoughts... It's an excellent book. It's thorough (without being too complex); it's clear and relatively concise (while covering more than just the essentials) and to top it off, it makes good use of excellent references to other works and articles. Highly recommended - whether or not it's on your reading list. If only all economics books were this good!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars I had my reservations..., 31 May 2006
...but upon listening to the CD I was very impressed both with the quality of the recording, and also with the quality of the performance. Jerusalem wasn't quite as good as I'd hoped, but the rest are superb. Note: the tracks feature vocal arrangements where appropriate (i.e. it's not just the band).

Excellent quality, and a good selection of hymns to choose from. Was very impressed, and would recommend to anyone looking for a CD (or two!) of British hymns.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good stuf, 31 May 2006
This review is from: Hits Of The Sixties (Audio CD)
Good quality, and some good tracks. A few good tracks are missing, but hey, for £3 you can't expect everything!
