2.0 out of 5 stars great if you live in the U.K., 19 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this book was next to useless for the country I live in as it was so U.K. specific which is a shame and something which I wish I had known before buying this book

5.0 out of 5 stars Such a brilliant book!, 21 May 2012

Just as good as I remember it from a kid although a few un PC bits in that would definitely be edited out today -- still the themes of friendship, loyalty and caring about others rings true


Landed Gently (Inspector George Gently 4)
Landed Gently (Inspector George Gently 4)
by Alan Hunter
Edition: Paperback
Price: 5.73

2.0 out of 5 stars not his best book, 15 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am steadily working my way through the Inspector Gently series (and highly recommend the recent tv adaption of them). I found this his weakest book so far after having thoroughly enjoying the first three. The plot seemed to meander and the characters were a bit wet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth buying, 15 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have always loved "Cheaper by the Dozen" and when I saw this book come up, I grabbed it. What an amazing woman! I never realized how vital she was to time motion work, ergonomic design and management techniques that are still used today. It would have been nice, though, if there had been more personal stories from her children and/or contemporaries. But overall, I would highly recommend this book to anyone!
