5.0 out of 5 stars Top quality for the top musician!, 17 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a super music stand! Good solid piece of engineering, adjusting screws that grip tight and don't hurt your fingers and it all easily adjusts from very low to very high. Smooth attractive black finish. Delivered next day post free. Make sure you open it up as in the instruction leaflet as not all music stands work the same. Really recommend this!

5.0 out of 5 stars An unsurpassed Christian teaching aid, 25 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Holiness (Kindle Edition)
Although written by a 19th Century C of E bishop, this book contains scriptural Christian teaching that's conveniently overlooked by many of our present Catholic, Protestant and charismatic wishy-washy churches. Explains sanctification and holiness and not just justification through faith which seems to be the creed of so many modern churches. If you're looking for a challenging and inspirational Christian book, this is it. Do buy it. You won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Doctor knows best . . ., 11 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A sad, albeit sickening account of the treatment of a mentally sick young man in the mid-sixties. His insight into his illness and the views he expressed were largely ignored by doctors at the time and he records his frustration in his diaries. His own over-high expectations of himself and the reality of his lack of success led him to a feeling of worthlessness and ultimately to suicide. How people unfortunate enough to be diagnosed with mental illness could be treated with such arrogance in those days beggars belief.

The York Notes Advanced are helpful if you're struggling to understand the behaviour of some of Shakespeare's characters or the meaning behind certain references. These notes, along with David and Ben Crystal's 'Shakespeare's Words', really opened the play up for me.

This review is from: Gregorian Chants (Audio CD)
How men singing plainsong manage such spot on unison always amazes me. Timing, pitch, ensemble - everything is good on this recording. Provides a wonderfully calm atmosphere, interspersed with chirpy interludes from a very competent organist. Excellent.

Loved this piano piece when it came out - it was a big hit. Lost my copy and forgot about it. Glad to see second hand copies are still obtainable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cricket chaps?, 23 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Enjoying this enormously. Explains patiently the rudiments and laws of this crazy game. I've only got a tenth of the way through yet but already it's helping to clarify some of the commentator's terms on the Test Match (England v Australia) currently on Radio 4 Long Wave. Like Test Match cricket, I've no intention of hurrying to finish it! It's helpful to someone struggling that it repeats itself at times. Anybody with a basic Kindle like mine will need to turn the screen from portrait to landscape to see the complete diagrams which help explain the text. Easily worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dr Eckhart's Prescription!, 25 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I think everything has already been said about this book. I think I gave my original copy away, hence I bought the Kindle edition. So much of what he says about the 'unconscious' or 'unskillful' way people lead their lives in our modern world is doubtless true. People are thinking short-term and selfishly and few are in any position to do anything about it. The problem seems unsolvable. But some like Eckhart Tolle, Thich Nhat Hanh and the Dalai Lama remain optimistic! When we're not faced with disaster or serious trouble or desperate insecurity of some kind, the book seems to make perfect sense, but if we were to be, well I'm not so sure. On a personal spiritual level, I think it's still a valuable book and refreshingly free from religious dogma.

5.0 out of 5 stars Barnes Wallis - A Biography and a half, 4 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Life of Barnes Wallis (Paperback)
This is a very technically meaty biography from someone who knows his stuff. Personally I'd have welcomed a line drawing or two to illustrate the parts of an airship (for example) that he talks about since I know less than nothing about them. The battles and professional jealousies Wallis had to cope with (even more than with The Dam Busters) are well documented in this book. It's more than a biography and quite tough going at times. Nevertheless the author has really tried to do justice to this amazing man.
