5.0 out of 5 stars THE "HARRISONS' - what an achievement! 'LONGITUDE' - what a book!, 15 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Longitude (Kindle Edition)
I have just finished reading this authoritative, extremely well-researched yet concise account of one of Man's greatest achievements. Without the achievement of The 'Harrisons', we would not know where we stand on this planet as a human race - literally; we would not have had the chance to explore our surroundings and earthly environment systematically extending to space, outer space and the stars. 'Longitude' is a book that's worth reading and re-reading to learn how ideas can be turned into fact. Ultimately, it also proves the point that 'Genius (or success - my addition) is one per cent inspiration and ninety-nine per cent perspiration' - as Edison told us not so long ago.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST OF THE BEST, 12 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a machine! Easy to use and makes light work of cleaning a large patio and mucky cars and many other things. Bring on the dirt! I've got a match for it! Use it as per instructions and you will be as happy as I am with it! This is not a toy! (Although it could conceivably be classified as a 'man toy') - Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars KINNIE - a great taste from Malta, 12 July 2014
A brilliant thirst quencher which tastes great both at room temperature as well as cold with lots of ice. I like to drink it on its own or with most types of savoury Maltese or Mediterranean food, but is excellent with a snack lunch of 'pastizzi' (Maltese Cheese/Pea cakes) or 'hobz biz-zejt' (Maltese/Ciabatta type crusty bread loaf with a filling of chopped tomatoes,olives, onions, capers, cooked butter beans, tuna with a dressing of olive oil). Mmmmmmm.........!

4.0 out of 5 stars GOOD MANUAL, 16 Jun 2014

A brilliant idea from Haynes. Have not yet read this book thoroughly but I like the contents and style of the publication. Have a few questions about retirement that I want answered. 4 stars and not 5 as should come with online resource CD/DVD that might expand the use of this interesting publication.

4.0 out of 5 stars HANDY BASIC RING FLASH, 16 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I do not consider using my new Ring Flash in NCIS style, but hope to take pictures of collections of small items I have. Couples to my Olympus E-400 camera well and does the job, without fail. Other models cost more. For a basic Ring Flash, this will do. If you want to (and can) spend more, the world's your oyster. 4 stars and not 5 because this is an 'unbranded' product, with pretty good but obviously poorly translated (from Chinese) instructions

Edition: Paperback

2.0 out of 5 stars NOT A MATHEMATICS BOOK, 16 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very confusing book with little information that I could decipher. As a (very) amateur Mathematician, I was very surprised to learn Pythagorean Numbers are based in a philosophy rather than in Mathematics - my mistake - but still, unclear from the book's description. Have returned my copy for a refund.

5.0 out of 5 stars A VERY EFFECTIVE DIARY, 16 Jun 2014

An Academic Diary that does not need you to be earning big bucks - effective, functional and with all the characteristics of other more expensive publications. Highly recommended

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as one would expect, 9 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My order arrived later than estimated Hard Black case is useful but slide out keyboard nearly doubles the weight of the Apple iPhone and makes the whole outfit bulkier. One of the benefits of the iPhone 5s is that it's lighter and slimmer (115g) than the iPhone 4S. Adding nearly its own weight again for a keyboard (81g) is not such a good idea. Also, while it works acceptably on Bluetooth, it does not integrate well with the phone itself and is not much help with the Apps. One still has to use the touch screen to access the Apps; besides the keyboard seems to interfere with iOS 7, causing the phone to freeze on a couple of occasions. This necessitated my having to shut the phone down completely and re-boot. Also, if Apple thought that such a keyboard was necessary, they would have designed one. All in all, not such a successful purchase; seemed a good idea but not so good in practice. I shall be returning it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value, 11 Nov 2012

Worth every penny of their price. Lightweight and useful to take away on travels to be able to weigh luggage at end of holiday, when all the souvenirs could weigh a ton. Recommended highly.
