Don't bother. Feels like a children's toy, came looking old and used.

being a fairly cheap bag with good reviews I thought it would be quite good but it has far surpassed my expectations. Very nice size with loads of room, well put together. It even comes with a waterproof cover which is nice. If you need a camera bag, buy this one.


Visions of Apocalypse: Representations of the End in French Literature and Culture (Modern French Identities)
Visions of Apocalypse: Representations of the End in French Literature and Culture (Modern French Identities)
by Leona Archer
Edition: Paperback
Price: £40.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Je le Kief., 3 Dec. 2013
Having been interested in views that historic cultures have had on apocalypse, I've built up quite the collection of similar books. They do not compare, this book is succinct, interesting and inspiring. Clearly the editing is sensational. Alex Stuart is a phenomenal expert on medieval french and it shines through in every page. A modern great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Drop the taboos and start to be rational., 1 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Prof. Nutt firstly gives us an introduction to who he is and his motivations for writing the book, he then goes on to explain the comparative techniques and the resulting order of harmfulness of drugs. Over the next chapters drugs (both legal and illegal) are looked at in more depth, history of the drug is given along with several case studies. The benefits of the drugs (i.e. medicinal potential) are also briefly examined.

Every factual claim made is backed up by evidence as you would expect from a scientist. He also suggests at ways legislation could be improved but does not come up with one strict plan, rather several ideas.

You should read this book if you want to be informed about anything to do with drugs.

3.0 out of 5 stars great content. poorly put together book, 10 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Free Will (Paperback)
Sam Harris is great and you should read all of his books. I was expecting a slightly longer book, this is more of a long essay.
unfortunately this paperback copy I received was poor quality, every page was a different size!

1.0 out of 5 stars expect a leaflet with only the contents page of the original, 10 May 2012

well reprinted but you don't get the whole book, very disappointing . Barely any of it in there at all. Thankfully I got a refund.
