Mistakes Were Made (but Not by Me): Why We Justify Foolish Beliefs, Bad Decisions and Hurtful Acts
Mistakes Were Made (but Not by Me): Why We Justify Foolish Beliefs, Bad Decisions and Hurtful Acts
by Carol Tavris
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Why we get things wrong and go on getting them wrong - fascinating., 22 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Absolutely fascinating. How all of us - but particularly those in authority - screw things up and go on screwing them up rather than admit we were ever wrong. A very entertaining (if occasionally depressing) read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating: governments and their crackpot schemes., 22 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fascinating stuff. Produced just before the lunatic scheme for the part-privatisation of the Underground was implemented and promptly collapsed . How governments can throw billions or our money down the drain without anyone noticing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Class!, 29 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love the novels anyway, and this dramatisation just added to the pleasure. Actors, stories, setting - all perfect. They really don't make them like that any more.

Delonghi EC152 Pump Espresso Coffee Machine
Offered by freedom4life
Price: £89.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Delish, 29 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This machine is not without its shortcomings - e.g. it took me a while to find a cappuccino cup shallow enough to fit under the outlets, and it makes a terrible noise when it runs out of water - but it makes an excellent cup of coffee, so for the price, who's complaining?


The Forsyte Saga: The Complete Series [DVD] [1967]
The Forsyte Saga: The Complete Series [DVD] [1967]
Dvd ~ Eric Porter

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic, 29 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I remember the Forsyte Saga emptying the streets when it was first shown, and I can still see why. It is so beautifully put together and so beautifully acted, and the story is so involving, that one quickly ceases to notice the occasionally shaky scenery, fake views and the like. I found myself watching two episodes a day...

2.0 out of 5 stars Oh dear, 29 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You can still see what was funny all those years ago - but these days it's hardly possible to see past the dreadful production values. Hancock never seems quite to be in control of the material - he was certainly better on the radio when you couldn't see his twitchings. Something else for the charity shop.

2.0 out of 5 stars Some things don't improve with keeping, 29 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
"Absolutely Fabulous" was absolutely fabulous when first shown, but the joke wears very thin. Didn't bother with watching them all.
