Daily Inbox Zero: 9 Proven Steps to Eliminate Email Overload
Daily Inbox Zero: 9 Proven Steps to Eliminate Email Overload
Price: £2.05

3.0 out of 5 stars Some good tips, 12 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If this is your first attempt at developing a system to manage your email, this book will be very helpful. Most will find that they've tried many of the methods already. Sensible advice and good reminder however.

How can I object to a free good? This e-book is brief, to the point, but helpful. I'm sure Tim Benson is gaining writing experience in order to produce something more substantial that he can charge for. I hope Tim will add some photographs to any updates.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not really a book, 1 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not really a book, more like a short report or summary. It is free after all so I shouldn't complain. Some useful tips in here, but you're better off with one of Leil Lowndes' books if you're looking for something with more detail

5.0 out of 5 stars Charming Feel Good story, 27 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A lovely leisurely read with likable characters throughout. Even the criminals and villains are appealing. The unlikely plot is written in a comic way that renders it almost believable.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is not a book about cooking, but......, 12 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is not a book about cooking per se, but rather what you learn through cooking and eating. This is not necessarily the book to teach you how to cook, but it is a book about Tim Ferris and how he learned to cook. The book is unashamedly about Tim but it is easy to read, very engaging and I did learn a thing or two that have modified the way I prep and cook food. The book is entertaining if nothing else.

Other reviews have made this point, but it is worth repeating for Amazon UK customers. This book is written for the American reader. You need to be conversant with arugula, zucchini, collard greens, beef short ribs etc and find the UK name. You will not be able to source many of his recommended utensils and ingredients either as he lists websites that do not ship to the UK. If Tim Ferris has the inclination to commission someone in the UK to research and edit the book to source available produce, this would be much appreciated and I would rate five star.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rip off, 4 April 2013
This review is from: Hypnosis For Fun (Kindle Edition)
This is not a book, but it is a marketing synopsis for a follow up book. I rarely feel cheated by low cost kindle books, but this is an exception. I actually read the entire "book" in eight minutes and was no more informed than before.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good aide memoire, 7 Mar 2013
A short book that acts as a good aide memoire for learning "Barnum" statements. Does require a previous knowledge of cold reading techniques.

1.0 out of 5 stars This book should carry a health warning, 8 Feb 2013
This book contains misguided and misleading dangerous advice. Vaccinations are the reason we don't see children dying of measles and other childhood illnesses that killed so many in previous centuries.

Cooking for Geeks: Real Science, Great Hacks, and Good Food
Price: £12.71

5.0 out of 5 stars it is what it says on the tin, 17 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
it is what it says on the tin. This is not a traditional cook book, but more about sharing the knowledge learned from dozens of seasoned chefs and cooks. It delves into the science of cooking whilst not baffling the non scientist. Brilliant if you like to understand the "why" of doing things in a certain way.
