Marvel Avengers Age of Ultron Hulk Fists Pretend Play
Marvel Avengers Age of Ultron Hulk Fists Pretend Play

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent quality play gloves, 21 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Excellent quality play gloves aimed at transforming every young boy into the Hulk. Although very well made it has to be admitted that they are quite expensive for what you get, but if you have a Hulk obsessed youngster with a vivid imagination these are great and provide a lot of fun and creative- if lively!- play, and so serve a vital purpose in that regard- the draining of energy from little boys. As an adult I would think twice about the price to be honest, seems a bit of opportunist trading on a brand to me but hey, what' new, although the child using them doesn't really care about that and, I'm sure, would give an unreserved five stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very pleased- excellent smoothie blender, 21 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Pretty basic but good quality blender that feels well made and is effective, particularly in it's target market of smoothie making.

Good range of six speeds which makes it very flexible to use and has a good, stable base. It blends effortlessly and the results are excellent both for smoothies and shakes and it'll juice as well. Pretty good family-size capacity too so all in all a quite good value blender that looks stylish too as expected from Philips. Very pleased with it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Difficult to pin down 'time management' self help handbook, 21 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have to admit I often found it difficult to get a handle on this book. Although well written and at times engaging it struggles to find a niche between autobiographical narrative and 'self-help' handbook. The book is also not brilliantly organised and could of done with much better editing- the material here is too slight for a book this length and the message- learn how to delegate and make your own actions more productive- has been explored more energetically years ago in books such as Tim Ferriss's 'the 4 Hour Work Week.' To be honest, I felt much of this book could have fit into a couple of blog posts and had as much if not more effect.

In a genre that is completely stuffed to the jowls these days with books like this, something has to be extra special to make an impact never mind shine and incohesive books that are in places too opaque- as this one unfortunately is- aren't going to find any traction. Shame really because the ideas are sound, it's just the presentation of them misses the mark and the highly competitive world of self-help books is unforgiving in that respect. So worth a look if you think the topic is your thing, but approach with caution.


Big Data: Using Smart Big Data, Analytics and Metrics to Make Better Decisions and Improve Performance
Big Data: Using Smart Big Data, Analytics and Metrics to Make Better Decisions and Improve Performance
by Bernard Marr
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.20

4.0 out of 5 stars Want to get to grips with Big Data? Start here!, 18 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Want to get to grips with Big Data? Start here. A fascinating, reasonably detailed but easy to absorb analysis of a central economic and societal element of the 21st century. Marr presents a book that works well on a number of levels. You can approach it as an interested layman and get plenty from it, but there's also enough in-depth consideration in it to satisfy those more deeply involved in dealing with Big Data. For a good, nuts and bolts grounding and exploration of the nature and applications of this issue, this is an excellent, contemporary point of reference.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good replacement cleansing brushes, 18 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Very good, proper branded brush replacements for Braun face brush. Top quality as would be expected and they fit into device easily and securely, the brushes soft but effective on your skin. Use moderately and you get 3 months minimum from each of these brushes so not bad value really- and they do work!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very comfortable, stretchy high quality running pants, 17 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Very comfortable, stretchy high quality running pants that fit comfortably. Highly serviceable too as they are easy to clean and reasonably water-resistant to boot. There's a handy zip key pocket at the back [which also holds a small phone/mp3 player] and the waist is well elasticated with a drawstring as well. The zipped legs also have secure zips whose tags snap down so they don't flap about, which is great and shows pretty much everything has been thought about in the pants design which I like. What impressed me most of all though I must say is the level of comfort- they are nicely lined and all round you get the feel of a good quality, well thought out product. Would definitely recommend.


The Essential Manager: How to Thrive in the Global Information Jungle
The Essential Manager: How to Thrive in the Global Information Jungle
by James W. Cortada
Edition: Paperback
Price: £23.50

4.0 out of 5 stars A topical, useful book for all levels of management, 17 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A concise, well presented book that doesn't lack in detail or constructive information and advice. There's so much information out there these days that too many people tend to confuse information with knowledge when there is, perhaps more than ever these days, a definite distinction between the two. This book is a handy, accessible and at times thought-provoking guide on how to navigate your way through the inherent problems of getting to the bottom of that distinction and using it in a managerial capacity to optimal effect.

All in all a very topical, useful book for all levels of management and in this ever changing commercial world, I found it an essential read for continuing professional development.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very handy little adapter, 15 April 2015
This is a very handy little adapter that I've had no problems with- had to at first fiddle around with the sound settings but no big deal. It connects my laptop to a projector from it's HDMI port and you can then watch HDMI quality video on the big screen, whether through a projector or directly into a TV. Nice range of colours to choose from too if that's your thing! Seems pretty good value too- from my experience would recommend [provided by manufacturer free of charge for a fair review].

Haven't had any problems with this adapter connecting my Android devices to the TV- works a treat in fact. The whole adapter set is very flexible and great quality for the price- connections are firm and positive and it's a good charging cable too, with a decent length. Well worth a look [provided free by manufacturer for a fair review].

4.0 out of 5 stars A neat little adapter, 15 April 2015
A neat little adapter that's pretty flexible and had no problems with it's functionality. Found this handy for my laptop, plug it into the HDMI jack and the adapter takes the VGA video and audio connections securely and reliably. Nice adapter at a reasonable price too [supplied by manufacturer for a fair review].
