4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining poetry, 30 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An entertaining rather than a great poet, but that's why I bought it

Price: 79.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Good enough for me, 30 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Worked out of the box, does everything I need, but I'm a not very demanding chef


The Collected Verse of Rudyard Kipling
The Collected Verse of Rudyard Kipling
Price: 2.05

5.0 out of 5 stars Kipling without cakes, anywhere you like., 16 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This collection reveals aspects of Kipling I had not previously suspected existed, well outside Gunga Din, Kim and Jungle Book and the tub thumping patriotism of his better known works. Over 400 poems can't all be top drawer, but dipping in at random is generally rewarding and frequently entertaining

5.0 out of 5 stars Death to wires on the working surface., 16 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Worked straight out of the box and immediately freed my desk of traing wires that got caught everything possible. It's got lots of keys I haven't got round to using yet, but it certainly is comfortable to use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really fit for purpose, 30 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The old webcam was a bit weary, this new one is a revelation. Worked just fine out of the box and is key to my frequent Skype to Australia

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Worked out of the box and continues to function OK. I just hope it lasts longer than my previous WD passport

5.0 out of 5 stars Stimulating & educational, 8 Aug 2013

I've bought earlier editions of this book when keeping pace with Elements upgrades. Each edition has encouraged me to think outside the box. This is no exception. An essential companion
