4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent shave wet or dry, 6 Dec 2011
This is a truly excellent shaver and I would easily rate it as the best electric shave I have ever had. It is quite large and a bit noisier then my philishave coolskin but gives a faster and closer shave. The only reason for the four stars rather than 5 is that it's so expensive - get it on offer from Amazon or elsewhere online and you've got yourself a 5 star shaver!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Shaver - Real Value For Money, 2 Nov 2007
I bought this shaver as a replacement for wet shaving (Gillete Fussion) although I have, in the past, owned several elctric shavers from Braun and Phillips. The shaver has truly surpassed all my expectations in terms of the closeness of the shave and the comfort of use. It's a superbly designed product that I would recomend to anyone. If you compare the price of this shaver with the cost of replacement razor blades over a couple of years it represents reasonably good value. Being able to shave in the shower is helpful and everything about this product is well thought out and designed. Highly recomended.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Encyclopaedia of Wild Food, 26 Aug 2007
I am really pleased with this book. I am one of Ray Mears 'Woodlore' students and have collected a fairly extensive library on 'Wild Food'. This book is currently the most complete I have found so far. The recipes are arranged alphabetically by plant species and there are so many featured that it would take many years to try them all. Although the paintings of the featured plants are lovely, they are definitely not designed for identification purposes; so if you are buying this book you will also need a good field guide to identify plants with. That said, you really should buy this book!

4.0 out of 5 stars A great reference but not intended as a field guide!, 30 Jun 2007
This review is from: Food from the Wild (Hardcover)
This book has become one of my firm favourites in my bushcraft / wildfood library. The work is more comprehensive in the range of edible plants covered than many of the other (better-known) books in this field. A major strength of this book is that it focuses specifically on the edible plants of the UK and Northern Europe. It does not, on the whole, include recipes but does have a lot of factual information. On the back cover it lists as one of its merits 'Detailed artworks provide accurate identification'. Please, please DO NOT try to use this book to identify wild plants (or especially FUNGI) with which you are unfamiliar. The drawings (although very beautiful) are INADEQUATE to make positive identifications. If you are serious about foraging YOU SHOULD BUY THIS BOOK but also buy one (or two) good field guides, for identification purposes. Remember there are many poisonous plants and fungi in the UK.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic from the 80's, 30 Jun 2007
If, like me, you remember the original airing of this show on children's television, then (like me) you are possibly in the position of wanting to share the wonderful stories of Toad, Ratty, Mole & Badger with your own children. The animation is superb, with incredible attention to details relevant to the Edwardian life and countryside. The episodes are all very well written and the characters are voiced by some of our best-loved actors. I am so pleased that the copyright owners have finally decided to release this series on DVD. In the midst of today's violent or highly sarcastic animated character this DVD set stands out as charming, heart-warming and enduring.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellant for information but not a field guide, 5 Aug 2006
Although this book is written for the American market many of the items covered are also found in the UK and should not present a problem to the European reader. Potential buyers should be aware that this book is inadequate for use in the identification of different plant species, as it contains no colour photographs or drawings. You would be foolish to try to identify anything using this book alone. That said, Chrtistopher Nyerges book is an absolute mine of information on the various properties and uses of the plants discussed and deserves a place in the library of anyone interested in Bushcraft or survival. This book covers medicinal, edible and poisonous plants with great detail and includes references to modern research as well as folklore. Just make sure you buy a decent field guide for plant identification! Field guides by Roger Phillips (also on Amazon) are excellant.
