5.0 out of 5 stars Making sense of Shakespeare., 18 Feb 2013

What you see is what you get. Making sense of Shakespeare for regular punters. Talks to you, not at you. Recommended for anybody wanting to make sense of Shakespeare and why and how he wrote the way he wrote.

5.0 out of 5 stars What's all the fuss about ?, 18 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although practically every American police drama refers to " The Constitution " and various Amendments thereto,I needed to see and read what all the Fuss was about.Being able to download all the pertinent documents on to my Kindle solved that problem. Reading the actual Declaration, it is now easy to understand why Americans are so proud of " The Fathers of the Revolution. "

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So long since first read this, just had to revisit. Taking films out of sequence a bit misleading. However,have now passed books on to American grandnephews for their enjoyment.

5.0 out of 5 stars The nearly men, 2 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although the phrase was never used, this was to have been England's Grand Slam year. However, as usual, the Irish were having none of that nonsense. The Irish set out to be the party pooper's, and succeeded only too well.The end result showed only too well that England have a long way further to go before they can repeat the deeds of 2003.

The " Old Boy " loved England and, more importantly, the English Language. Here, he gives full vent to both.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does History still matter?, 14 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Herodotus was called the Father of History. Personally I firmly believe we can only understand where we are today by looking at where we came from. Caesar - Hero or Villain? Alexander - Genius or Megalomaniac? Napoleon - Monster or Misunderstood? These three Are " Heroes " of mine, not necessarily good or bad, but because they stamped their names into History. They have to be read about, in the context of their times, to have any hope of understanding the WHY of them, and why, still today, their names still loom large in HISTORY.

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterful story telling, 14 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
W E B Griffin tells the story of men in combat as it really was. Full blown characters that one can emphasise with. Other series, such as Brotherhood of War, Men in Blue and Presidential Agent are not to be missed.

5.0 out of 5 stars History as it never was, 14 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I picked up the first book in this series purely on speculation and was hooked. Between the books and the Grantville Gazette on line a whole new dimension in Alternative History unfolds. Characters are allowed to develope and blossom. I await eacf further instalment either in book form or on line with baited breath.

5.0 out of 5 stars Poetry and Music, 14 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Thoughts To Inspire (Audio CD)
I love poetry and music and this album combines both. The fact that Scripture readings are included just adds the cherry on the cake.
