5.0 out of 5 stars Don't get mixed up.., 24 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These essays are a very good collection of how people reason to themselves about how to act when there are two or more clashing demands. I like the vergers servants of the Almighty, who were also good trade unionists in getting an increase in cash.

4.0 out of 5 stars It worked. It was cheap., 24 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I needed USB headset for my Mac Mini 1.6 OS10.6.8 and it worked well with Dragon Dictate. It was the mic input I needed so it did not matter that the phones output was not loud enough to work with my poor hearing. One star off as a warning but I expect people with normal ears will be ok. :-)

4.0 out of 5 stars For what it is., 29 April 2012
David Crystal describes the his preface the the what this book is. It is a collection of short essays, very clearly written, on 73 topic mostly headed "How....' They are carefully arranged but not designed for continuous reading. The essays are not "encyclopaedia entries", more overviews of the topic in hand... for example 'How Language Changes'. Students (and teachers) will find it a good starting point for a topic of interest. But there lies its weakness... It's bibliography is brief and it's index is conventional.

I tackled several of the essays which interested me. Some I followed up on Google. Others, which I casually dipped into, added to my stock of 'could come in useful' things to know. The book is worth a place on my shelves.


Business Ethics: Readings and Cases in Corporate Morality
Business Ethics: Readings and Cases in Corporate Morality
by W. Michael Hoffman
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars Very Useful, 29 Feb 2012
For those needing a cheap (second hand paper)collection of classic readings on Business Ethics although 20 years and more old is is very good start. Its major strength is that it deals with wider issues than the conventional texts, employment, marketing, regulation etc. Of course it needs to be read alongside texts in the light of of more recent thinking and events.

It's epigraph might be Milton Friedman's remarks on the limitations on maximising profits

Although I have not had much time to study the content, one of the interesting points about this catalogue is its discussion the the reception of the painters work among their contemporaries.


Managing in Health and Social Care
Managing in Health and Social Care
by Vivien Martin
Edition: Paperback
Price: £27.89

4.0 out of 5 stars Horses for Courses, 21 Nov 2011
I was looking at this text from the viewpoint of one having have taught Health and Care staff at all levels. As the Introduction explains, it is a compilation from material prepared for a professional course in Health and Social Care and up dated for a new edition. After a rather mundane outline of 'leader' 'manager', management topics which needed some adaption to the particular organisations under review, it gets down to business, engaging the reader/learner in practice via checklists and recipes. In the hands of an well versed teacher and engaged students' own experiences, the suggested activities would work well. Case studies are rather lacking but there is one good one about Mr Jones, a terminally ill cancer patient, which cuts to some of the underlying problems of providing a connected-up-service in world of different protocols and maybe different ideologies. Although budgeting is covered costing and its connection with activity analysis and efficiency seems to be missing. I found covering this found the insightful to practitioners, technicians and professionals, at this level and it might well be included in a further edition..
