Fantastic value. Took literally a couple of minutes to plug in, be recognised and start copying files. The best drive I've ever had - almost silent, good transfer speeds. And very rapid delivery to the Isle of Man - thanks, Amazon.

4.0 out of 5 stars OK - but ..., 22 Aug. 2010

A useful biography, but I feel that she was a little too close to her subject. I suspect that he was actually a great deal less attractive than she makes him appear. It would be good to have a more critical view of this very complex man.

At this price, you would be mad not to get it. Gould was a genius - I cannot imagine my life without him.

This is the third hair trimmer that I've had. My wife - who does the cutting - says that it is by far the best, powerful, accurate, much better because cordless. As recommended by her hairdresser.

5.0 out of 5 stars Early Mullins, but still good, 12 Aug. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I came to this having been knocked sideways by his later work on Cluny (see my review). This is much earlier - written around his journey (mostly by car) to Santiago - and now republished. Full of learning and wisdom - highly recommended for those interested in the pilgrimage, the architecture of the route and the medieval mind. Not in any sense a practical how-to-do-it guide.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading, 12 Aug. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've read most of the standard texts about Waugh, and thought I was pretty knowledgeable. But there is a great deal of material new to me which has increased very significantly my understanding of the novels and of his character. A word of warning - for the first few chapters, I felt as if I was reading a cut-and-paste job from other biographers, but it soon becomes much more illuminating . And while she writes pretty well - a prerequisite for a Waugh biographer - there are a few purple passages.

5.0 out of 5 stars OUTSTANDING, 9 Jun. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you have any interest at all in the history of Europe in the middle ages, Romanesque art and architecture, or the rise and fall of the monasteries, you should buy this book. It is beautifully written, accessible but based on deep understanding. A tour de force - I came on it by chance, and I shall always be glad that I did.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT APPROACH, 4 Jun. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a terrific book which makes you reconsider your whole approach to gardening. I had to do this because of changed garden circumstances. This is my first season using his method, and I'm very impressed. It reduces to some very simple concepts - raised beds, a specific growing mixture, close planting, demarcated areas for each vegetable. The author is a retired American engineer who likes things to be done to precise specifications and ideally using the cheapest materials. That you can take or leave - but the basic concepts are excellent, and very clearly explained.

J.S Bach: Goldberg Variations [DVD] [2007]
Dvd ~ Andrea Bacchetti
Price: £19.99

4.0 out of 5 stars WELL WORTH PURCHASING, 1 Jun. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The DVD is the reason to buy this - nicely shot, he is very interesting to watch and looks a lot like Beaker from the Muppets. The CD wouldn't make my Goldberg top 5, maybe not even my top 10. For me the ornamentation is way over the top.

5.0 out of 5 stars VERY FINE, 1 Jun. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Stunning is a good enough summary. Wonderfully recorded, deeply felt. The spoken words by the priest of the church where the recording was made sound a little odd the first time of hearing, but you soon accept them as true to the piece.
