Price: £1.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job 100%, 29 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's difficult to wax lyrical about stick-on heels. However they fit, they stay stuck on and they do the job for which they are designed. They arrived quickly, with helpful additional instructions. On this basis , they score 100%

4.0 out of 5 stars Best luggage scale so far, 8 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really like this scale. I've tried a few others but this is best so far.It looks neat, has a little red hand that records the weight. It arrived quickly, was securely but sensibly packed. It seems to weigh accurately. I am pleased with it, Let's hope it's still working in 5 years time

4.0 out of 5 stars It's a batter charger, 8 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's a battery charger which charges batteries. Wow. What can one say about a battery charger. But it arrived quickly, well packed, I thought it was reasonably priced. The proof of the pudding is if it's still working in 5 years timeme. Maybe I'll up-date this review in 5 years time, but for now I'm happy with it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bright light, minimal design. Very slick, 8 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The lamp does everything that I'd want. It's very slick, the light is very bright when on full power, mellow when dimmed. The controls are easy and very neat. The design overall is minimal, which is something I like.

TRAVEL LUGGAGE SCALE

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but...., 13 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: TRAVEL LUGGAGE SCALE
tThis gives pretty accurate readings; about 1kg out in 20kg. Valuable for avoiding excess baggage charges at the airport. It's both small and neat. One major criticism. Other scales of similar type have a red hand that gets pushed around the dial by the "measuring hand". When you put the scale down, the "measuring hand" returns to zero, the red hand stays in place so you can see what the suitcase weighed.This scale doesn't have a red hand, so you have to look at what it weighs whilst you are weighing it. Quite awkward but possible to do With a red hand it's be so much better.

2.0 out of 5 stars An easy entry to correct English usage, 13 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Elements of Style (Paperback)
A friend is writing a novel and I was asked to help edit the manuscript. We fought over punctuation, especially the use of commas, grammar etc etc. This small book became indispensable . Can be a bit didactic, but I suppose that's the nature of the subject; much more accessible than Fowlers, not quite as definitive but easy to read and use.

5.0 out of 5 stars A diamond of a book, 13 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I f I was speaking only in English and I said of something "that's reasonable", a friend might ask " what do you mean by reasonable ?", and an interesting discussion could begin. If you expand this to what is considered "reasonable " in a number of different Countries/languages and over different periods of time, how has the meaning changed....you have a grasp of what this book does. It expands your mind as you read it. I kept feeling, "I've never thought of XYZ in that way before" , It's a book I can imagine reading for years. Even a single entry can demand days of your time; whatever effort you put in is rewarded many fold. What do I mean by "rewarded"? Read the book !!!.


The Dons: Mentors, Eccentrics and Geniuses
The Dons: Mentors, Eccentrics and Geniuses
by Noel Annan
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Unlocks many of the "mysteries" of Oxbridge. Informative, Readable,, 20 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Oxford and Cambridge rank as amongst the world's leading academic bodies, but it wasn't always so. This book, written by an insider, takes a broad sweep of history. It looks at the great English universities in the early 19thC when they had become inferior to their German counterparts. It looks at why this happened, why it was necessary to reverse this state and how the reversal was accomplished. Far from being a dry dusty work, it brings leading players to life, right up to the time of Margaret Thatcher. If you want to know about some great characters from the Victorian age onwards, if you want to know how Oxbridge "thinks", if you want to know how successful change can be accomplished, read this book edu
