Cheap. But you'd be better off spending £10 and getting a 25 piece screwdriver set Tactix Mini Atypia Ratchet Screwdrivers And Sockets-25-Piece Set

4.0 out of 5 stars The fear that drives us?, 7 Mar. 2015
This review is from: The Future (Futures) (Paperback)
An excellent exposition of the fear that drives so many societies of the 'developed" world from Augé, if not quite of the same impact as his earlier more well known works such as "Non Place: Introduction to an Anthropology of Supermodernity". The theme of the future is ably addressed throughout and Augé poses a series of well articulated philosophical positions regarding our supermodern consumer society.

Cheap looking, tacky, awkward controls, very quiet alarm, didn't wake me up two out of three times. Posts from China, takes ages to arrive and does not accept returns. Buy the £13+ versions that post from the UK that accept returns.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor value for money, 28 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Rather cheap in manufacture/materials, with a very loud ticking mechanism, bulkier than the images here suggest, a side on image would reveal that but it is not provided. I was disappointed enough to send it back and get a refund.


Talking to Architects: Ten Lectures by Colin Ward
Talking to Architects: Ten Lectures by Colin Ward
by Colin Ward
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.00

4.0 out of 5 stars But are the architects listening?, 19 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fascinating book documenting Ward's numerous talks, and attempts to talk to architects, about the people they build for. As many of the dates show these issues had been being discussed by Ward since the 1970s, but we still see precious little of his 'anarchist based' concepts of architecture in practice. His reliance on people to know best is not something the architectural professions seems able to comprehend. A great book, neat, succinct and well edited.
