4.0 out of 5 stars Trustworthy and great value, 21 Nov 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've used BitDefender's 2014 suite on one of my PC's the past year and have found it very reliable and unobtrusive so was keen to see how this years release measures up. Well I can say it is just as good and value wise, considering you get 3 PC coverage with this, it's difficult to beat.

The UI is simple and intuitive and the whole package is easy to install, I had no problems at all with that. There's a few new functions that build on the previous release and I particularly like the tune-up facility which is very useful. if you want that extra bit of security over and above the free AV systems and particularly if you have a small business and/or do a lot of online banking, this is a suite well worth looking at.


Strange Glory: A life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Strange Glory: A life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer
by Charles Marsh
Edition: Paperback
Price: £13.60

5.0 out of 5 stars A very moving book that is quite an achievement, 21 Nov 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a very moving book that deserves to be widely read by either the religious or secular, as it is primarily a very human story about faith, commitment and care within society, often against appalling odds and evil.

It's not a 'light' read and to my mind all the better for that. It requires you from the outset to fully engage with the prose and through that not just the story, but a deepening understanding of this quite remarkable man's life begins to build, fascinate and impress in ever more profound ways. All in all, this book is quite an incredible achievement and, after reading it, you will not leave empty handed.


The Labrador Theory
The Labrador Theory
by Cheever Hardwick
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £11.85

3.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant enough stocking filler-type book, 20 Nov 2014
This review is from: The Labrador Theory (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a pleasant enough hardback book nicely illustrated with sparse text and it is aimed very much towards one singular market- the over-50 'conservative' middle class male of a certain lifestyle/disposition.

It has it's amusing moments based on certain observations we have all experienced with whatever dog we may have, and it has overall a nice cosy, retro-feel to it. Ultimately however you get the feeling it isn't much more than stocking filler item, with all the disposability and short-attention holding abilities such items usually hold. So it's a nice book that has it's place... for a while.


Twitter is Not a Strategy
Twitter is Not a Strategy

Edition: Hardcover
Price: £16.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A succinct, lively and cogent look at the Branding process, 20 Nov 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A succinct, lively and cogent look at branding. The impressive thing about Doctoroff is his ability to cut to the quick and give good analysis of the phenomenon and process of branding without skipping any detail or 'real-world' grounding comment.

Ideal for student and professional practioner alike, this neat, well organised book looks at the branding process warts and all and places the reader firmly in the commercial environment of the 21st century. Well worth a look.

Leitz Style 40 Pocket Display Book - Garnet Red
Price: £7.52

5.0 out of 5 stars High quality, practical and very professional looking display folder, 20 Nov 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As usual an example of very high quality stationery from Leitz. Firm, waterproof cover that immediately appears very durable and the plastic pockets inside are highly translucent yet of a thin but strong plastic that won't tear or crinkle easily. Top-notch display folder that looks and feels very professional, particularly if you are displaying to a client etc. So makes a good impression and very practical too- perfect combination.


Mitre BRZ Academy Goalkeeping gloves - Yellow/Blue/Black - 10
Mitre BRZ Academy Goalkeeping gloves - Yellow/Blue/Black - 10
Price: £24.40

4.0 out of 5 stars Effective and good value goalie gloves, 12 Nov 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
With goalkeeping gloves you have to make sure you have exactly the right size for complete comfort and usefulness but once that's sorted, these are very effective and extremely good value goalie gloves.

They fit well with excellent wrist support and well padded fingers/knuckles but are nonetheless comfortable to wear and you get the feeling the more you use them, the more worn-in and individualised they will become. Definitely an improvement on the old fingerless woollen variety of ancient times. Great product that look good too.


NeutronCompression Jersey - Black - Large
NeutronCompression Jersey - Black - Large
Price: £25.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Practical and comfortable compression sports jersey, 12 Nov 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Very high quality compression jersey ideal for any sports really but particularly good for running and cycling. The most impressive feature for me is the cooling capability of the top- after exertion you really do cool down quickly as the wonder fabric of these tops does it work.

It can be worn as a skin or over-top but be careful with sizes as they are [necessarily] tight fitting. Get the right size though and it is very comfortable and effective sportswear.


Employer Brand Management: Practical Lessons from the World's Leading Employers
Employer Brand Management: Practical Lessons from the World's Leading Employers
by Richard Mosley
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £22.43

4.0 out of 5 stars A good, well focused book, 11 Nov 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a good, well focused book that is aimed fairly and squarely at a specialist readership, that of employer brand management, and on the whole it gives a useful up-to-date overview of the topic and the techniques- both good and bad- employed

It looks at how brands have become successful over time in a holistic way, showing it's not just the marketing and niche-domination that creates a good brand, but the continually evolving ideas driving it and the way the company is organised from the ground up. Using frequent case studies it is a clearly presented, interesting book even for those outside of it's actual field, within which it is an excellent point of reference.


Woolly Woofers
Woolly Woofers

4.0 out of 5 stars Great little book of knitting patterns for dog apparel, 11 Nov 2014
This review is from: Woolly Woofers (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Well this has to be one of the most unusual books I've picked up and I have to say after being first sceptical, after having a good look at it I have to say what a great little book of knitting patterns for dog apparel!

It's not everyone's cup of tea of course- dressing your dog up in woollies and hats- but for those who do or are intrigued about how to do it, particularly if you are a keen knitter, this is a lively, well presented book with some amusing and even dare I say useful winter warmer ideas for, mainly, small to medium sized pooches.

Good starter book too for any youngster or older person starting to learn to knit, as the patterns are easy but a lot of fun. A surprisingly delightful book all round.


Beaphar Spray Away Plus, 400ml

5.0 out of 5 stars Very effective stain and odour remover, 10 Nov 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As other reviewers have said these products roll along regularly and you get a bit cynical about their effectiveness but this really does do the job. It removes stains easily and the added bonus for us- in fact the more important element really- is that it removes urine and poo smells from tiled floors etc and discourages the dog from returning there to do it's business. I've found you can use it neat- sparingly mind- on a tiled floor [check with an inconspicuous area of laminate flooring first] or even better spray some of it into water then apply with a sponge or mop. So far, I have to say, rather good as a fouling deterrent. May of course work with varying effectiveness with different dogs and cats, but ours seem to react the way we want to to the spray. Good stuff.
