4.0 out of 5 stars No online audio available, 17 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book could be great but the accompanying 'online audio' is no longer available. If you don't have an Italian friend to help you with your pronunciation, it's pretty difficult to guess correctly every time.


Italian Ways: On and Off the Rails from Milan to Palermo
Italian Ways: On and Off the Rails from Milan to Palermo
by Tim Parks
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.19

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy reading for a train journey, 17 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was surprised how much I enjoyed this book - I bought it as I'm interested in learning more about Italy than pizza and pasta but I really wasn't sure what to expect. It does, at times, delve a little too deeply into the inner workings of TrenItalia but it is quickly brought back to life with a laugh out loud observation or comment. An really well paced narrative and a unique view of Italian life and culture. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy reading, 15 July 2014

Interesting advice for endurance athletes in the opening chapters. Very easy to read. I've not tried any of the recipes but the tips about nutrition and pre race meal plans have been really useful. Recommended if you know nothing about sports nutrition!

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing new here, 15 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fluent in 3 Months (Paperback)
Don't buy this book if you think it will make you fluent in any language in 3 months. This book is for people who continually procrastinate about learning another language and think that buying another book might help. And this might be the book that helps you. However, none of the information in this book is new and the vast majority of the advice is freely available on the internet. In summary, the advice from the book is: "speak the target language at every available opportunity" and "stop making excuses". All of this is freely available on the website of the same name.

Price: £7.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Great opening paragraph, 9 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a highly entertaining book although it never quite lives up to the laugh out loud opening chapter! A quirky view on all aspect of life, Mr Coren writes what most other people are thinking but are too afraid to say ut loud. Easy to read and thoroughly entertaining - a great Father's day gift!!

5.0 out of 5 stars An impressive review of terrorism, 9 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Inside Terrorism (Paperback)
This is an easy to read, well written analysis of all aspects of terrorism. Although wordy in parts - this book would not pass the plain English test - the fluidity and pace of the narrative and the diversity of topics covered mean this this book still provide a clear and comprehensive overview of terrorism. I have found it to be indispensable in further study of this area as it is reference by a number of other leading scholars in the field.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Sports Bra, 25 July 2010
I used to wear the original 'Shock Absorber' sports bra but when they changed their style, it no longer felt comfortable. This is the next best thing! At last a comfortbale sports bra that does the job!!
