1.0 out of 5 stars Virtually unbreakable, think again., 2 Mar 2013
Have the half litre one and its fine (purchased from Amazon) but the 1.0 litre now just does not work. Outside heats up and contents cool down after a couple of hours, bought it out of ASDA though (less than a year ago)and always suspicious of it, perhaps it was a fake!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Money wasted, 14 Jun 2012
This review is from: Advanced Bird ID Guide (Paperback)
Fabulous amount of detail if you dont die of boredom while reading the first paragraph. Idea of words and nothing else in a field guide is a bit (a huge bit) lame, wish I didn't bother.

1.0 out of 5 stars Why pay more?, 7 Jun 2012
Buying cheap is not always a way to save money, will let you do the maths but mine worked out at around 20p per charge.
Such poor longevity, it really is more bother than its worth.
Ahh forgot to mention the first one did not work at all!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent in every respect., 3 Aug 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
From the moment I opened this book I loved it, everything about it is pleasing; content, layout and readabilty are all first class. I have the equivalent books for Scotland, Britain and France and find them all invaluable but this book most definitely has the edge.
In my opinion should be the benchmark for the whole series, highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good book, but could be better., 31 July 2010
This is indeed a very good book and one that I would recommend whole-heartedly, however, a few tweaks here and there would have resulted in something closer to Mr. Packhams claim that "There could be no better guide than this book".
The index of sites is there, and so it should be, but the species index is not! There is details of the authors opinion of the top 100 birds to be seen in Britain, which I really like, but not at the expense of the omission.
Personally I think there should be a list of species for each site in the same format as the excellent 'Where To Watch Birds Northern and Eastern Spain'. This gives a CALENDAR listing of 'All year', 'Breeding season', 'Winter' and 'Passage periods'; a precise and clear layout.
The Status list provided in the aforementioned WTWB N&E Spain is an excellent addition, one I would like to see in all the 'Where To Watch Birds' books. It provides a brief outline of the status of all the species which have been recorded in the region, I found this very helpful and interesting, but its not included in this book.
The phenomenal amount of detailed information in this book makes it a must have for anyone with any interest in birds, I intend to put mine to good use.

3.0 out of 5 stars Two purchased both dead in four years, not great., 5 Feb 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great look, picture, sound, and price. Changing channels is a bit slow but otherwise a very sound investment. Four years later both my own and Daughters ( on my recommendation)have both bit the dust. Obviously not the brand quality I had expected, wont buy Toshiba again in a hurry.

5.0 out of 5 stars If it's good enough for George Bush, 29 Dec 2009
As far as I am aware this is the watch George Bush wears and I can see why. Having owned it for a year or so now I am quite impressed. The strap is of excellent quality, the face if very robust and scratch resistant, the date refuses to be incorrect and the battery lasts (I think) six years and then is replaced (by timex) free of charge. It has a nice feel on the wrist and all importantly looks good as well. George Bush it would appear aint as stupid as people think.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps the best value book ever!, 24 Dec 2008
If you buy this book you will be delighted you made such a great choice. For me this book represents one of the greatest things of our age; fabulous coverage, excellent photos, brief written detail, durable plastic cover, glossy pages and all for the cost of a packet of fags and a pint of beer. Superb book and astounding value DO NOT HESITATE.
