5.0 out of 5 stars Common Sense and Excellent, 23 Mar. 2014
At long last a business improvement book that goes back to the basics taught to us by Deming. Yes there is Lean, Six Sigma TQM etc etc but they all come from one essential source and that is the work of Deming.

Its great that in this book there is a real insight into how a manager can think through problems and implement genuine improvements by looking at organisations, departments though just four simple concepts.

Written in an engaging style including an ongoing narrative by a fictional manager as they learn and improve their workplace. This style really broke the book into manageable and readable chunks. I was always keen to find out how "Ann" was progressing..

Thanks and highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great camera, 2 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A cracking camera. My first digital SLR. I always used to use a film SLR but moved to digital point and shoot years ago but have never really been that happy with it. This has changed all that. It's great just to use a view finder rather than squint at a screen. The cannon is simple to use packed with easy to access features. Battery life is amazing too. Our old digital point and shoot the battery only lasted a few hours. This one never stops. Highly recommended.

Just getting in to home wine making, this is a good kit but this brand has too many unneeded stages that I think you can ignore. Tastes great

3.0 out of 5 stars Please let this work, 28 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We have two very energetic boys and was getting fed up with the nagging and shouting just to get them to do the basic stuff around the house. Didn't have much too lose so gave this a go. Hmmm did it work ? Well we've been trying a few things in the book and they seem to make a difference. Some stuff is basic and you'd be dumb not to have used these already. But some of the case studies are a little unbelievable in the transformation of the children who've been subjected to this parenting. The overall approach is to be unrelentingly positive in praising your child's behaviour . After a while this can get fairly exhausting and you just want to shout at the little blighters. Will need to up date this in the next month with our progress. Overall though worth a try.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stylish cycling, 29 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this for my wife and what a stylish product. From the Netherlands so really shouldn't have expected anything else from the home of elegant cycling. Well made and really roomy inside. Clips easily onto the carrier frame with clips that hide in pockets when using this as a bag. Off the the bike a lovely shopping bag. This is the second basil cycle bag I've bought. Great really recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars My kids love these, 29 May 2012

Bought these for my two boys who are great star wars fans. They love them. Putting them on they reinact most of the scenes from the films. Took a while to get the order to arrive but other wise essential for us.

I have used glass demijohns for ages and was a bit worried about the plastic alternative . No need to worry. Very light and easy to use. In fact they feel much safer to handle when cleaning and bottling compared to the glass versions . Came quickly no probs with the supplier. Recommended.

Really good value this set. Just over £1 each. when on their own Bakugans are around £4-5. My boys like these, good fun to play with, although we've yet to work out the Bakugan game. Nice box to keep them in. Would recommend.

1.0 out of 5 stars Expensive weak and fiddly really, 19 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Hmmm - not great really, we broke the original one, couldn't seem to get a replacement from TomTom so had to go for this. Not well made at all, the original broke quite quickly this one we used it once and managed to break it within a few hours. The twisty thing that creates the suction came apart. Not great for a bit of plastic at thirteen quid. Going to use a lump of tack from now on.
