The Iron King (The Accursed Kings, Book 1)

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb historical fiction, 21 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As many people I read this on recommendation from GRRM, there are some parallels with ASOFAI and if you enjoyed those you'll enjoy these. It is a little slow to get going and ends on a cliffhanger but I was hooked halfway through and couldn't put it down. Intrigue, schemes, plots, lust and love; its got it all. You don't need an indepth knowledge of european history of the time but you'll probably find yourself reaching for wikipedia to learn more about certain historical figures and groups. On to book 2!

These are excellently balanced headphones, deep bass, crisp mids, and sharp highs. The plugs they come with look really large but are great at sound isolation, and of course there's the distinct shape of the rear of the earphone - a bit pointy - but they don't look ridiculous.

These are way better than the Sennheisers they replaced.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very realistic, 25 Aug 2013

OK so the moment you pick it up and look you can tell its fake, but the number of people that walk past my desk then double back to look again is hilarious. I was skeptical at first when I ordered this, but its well made and still on the original batteries a month or so from when I got it. Great alternative to the usual office/shelf gadgets

This is a good quality record bag. Its made of water-resistant fabric and the pattern looks really good - slightly more purple-ish grey than the photos suggest but not so you'd look at it and say "that's purple".

It holds more records than it looks like it can withstand, and the strap could be fractionally longer for more comfortable wearing when not carrying records in it. I comfortably holds both the newer 15" and older 17" MacBookPro laptops.

It has a zip on the outside of the main flap which is really useful.

There are heavier duty record bags out there but for the price this is a really good value for money stylish bag

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading for modern agilists, 19 Oct 2011
This is a great book, very readable and, with a wide range of case studies, illuminates how by making the specification and testing of a system a collaborative responsibility which extends beyond the development team to the whole business can lead to a more productive environment. While hopefully nothing in the book should be completely new to most developers (TDD, BDD, AATDD) the focus is not on the mechanics of writing tests in a particular language or framework but rather how various people interactions can be leveraged to ensure that desired behaviour, appearance, performance and general scope can be delivered, matching or exceeding the expectations of business and customer.

For teams trying to demonstrate that Agile is a viable methodology for their company reading this book is a must!
