5.0 out of 5 stars Another Krugman classic, 22 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm a real fan of Paul Krugman, so this was music to my ears. He is not for everyone obviously, but his written style is superb and his books are always very logical. Worth reading even if you are one of the haters, because it is the best exposition of the modern New Keynesian position you will come across.

1.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't get this to work, 22 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Doesn't seem to provide enough power to boot a harddrive up. Could be the computer I was using (Macbook Pro) but didn't work for me at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really great intro to macroeconomics, 22 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Tim takes you on a tour of modern macroeconomics in the conversational question-and-answer style he uses in his Financial Times column. It is the perfect length and amount of detail for a layman to get a quick grasp of the concepts in the context of the financial crisis. I fully recommend it. Very easy read, and Tim has a knack for making economics interesting without going down the pseudo-popeconomics route of books like freakonomics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 21 July 2009
I love these headphones, brilliant, clear and subtle sound quality. The ear canal design took a little while to get used to, but they block out noise so you can listen to your music very clearly. Great for the tube, or noisy train rides. I really like the lanyard design, if someone starts talking to you, you can pull the headphones out of your ears and let them drop, and they will hang around your neck neatly. The one downside is the length of the cord - the picture shown is accurate, the cord is very short from the lanyard section to the headphone jack. I needed to buy an extension cable separately. OK if you have a small iPod hanging around your neck I guess (you can attach it to the lanyard), but not great for larger MP3 players that you want to keep in your pocket. There is no way the cable will reach.

4.0 out of 5 stars OK for emergency use, 21 July 2009
I found this emergency charger useful at Glastonbury, all my friends used it to avoid having to go to the festival mobile phone charging tent. The build quality is excellent, it is a very solid bit of kit. The main body is brushed metal, and it isn't much larger than an AA battery. The downside is that this thing eats batteries at an incredible rate. One good quality AA battery might give you a bar or two of charge on your mobile, and the AA battery is dead after 10-20min. So it is really only designed for emergency use, although by buying a big multipack of AA batteries before the festival and constantly swapping out batteries my friends and I managed to keep our phones fully charged.

Hagakure: The Book of the Samurai
Hagakure: The Book of the Samurai

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favourite books, 1 Mar. 2004
Despite being written 300 years ago in Japan, this book contains so much wisdom and insight that can be successfully applied to modern life. It is very easy to read because it is made up of short passages usually only a paragraph long, so it is excellent to read a few pages at a time for a little inspiration. The stories are sometimes funny, and frequently confusing and illogical to the western mind which makes it a great read. This book is a great insight into the philosophy and mindset of the samurai. I would recommend it to anyone, and it makes a great gift.
