Edition: Paperback
Price: £42.00

Excellent text but subtle and requires concentration and commitment. Skimming will not work with this book. George Carrier has an international reputation in this area.

Price: £3.33

3.0 out of 5 stars Ferrule, 31 July 2013

Good design, fits walking stick well. First rubber ferrule seems too soft for my stick and wore through quickly. Will persevere with the others: may be a one-off.

It was useful to have this short story extract for a child without the necessity to buy the whole Jungle Book.

Excellent performances by Alan Cuckston of these suites, which can be difficult to put over. The extra pieces on the second CD are an attractive bonus. A two CD set at this price is a bargain.

4.0 out of 5 stars Colpermin capsules, 11 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have found these quite effective for IBS relief. However, they are quite expensive at 21p per capsule even with the Amazon discount. The Boots equivalents at £5.70 for 50 capsules are nearly half the price and seem to me to be just as effective. Both have 0,2ml peppermint oil as the active ingredient.

Great Pianists - Moiseiwitsch Vol 6
Great Pianists - Moiseiwitsch Vol 6
Price: £6.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Great performances, 6 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I usede to buy Moiseiwitsch 78's. I looked on this CD as an opportunity to reminisce. The perfomances are great, but what the advertising didn't say was that the CD transfers for most of the pieces were made from 78's rather than master discs. Nevertheless, despite the sound quality this CD is well worth the purchase as a record of the skill of this great performer

This is an excellent book - a very welcome reprint. It is probably the best book on piano playing for the amateur currently available.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brahms and Schubert, 3 Dec 2012

Excellent performances from this duo. The Brahms in particular is played with real depth by Natalie Clein. The support by Charles Owen is sensitively played.
