Wars of the Roses: Stormbird First Free Chapter
Wars of the Roses: Stormbird First Free Chapter

2.0 out of 5 stars No energy, 18 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I chose this having just read Agincourt by Bernard Cornwell.
Unfortunately this is a pale shadow, lacking pace and believable characters compared to Cornwell, I will not be getting the rest of the book instead I will buy one from the master of historical novels.

I am really enjoying this read, explains economics in a very simple practical way and I find I can understand technical content that other books left me completely confused about.
A very good starting point.


The 80/20 Pareto Principle: Its Application in Daily Life and Business
The 80/20 Pareto Principle: Its Application in Daily Life and Business
Price: 1.86

3.0 out of 5 stars Not detailed enough, 18 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was very interested in reading this book having used the Pareto principle during my working life.
Although the author mentioned lots of opportunities to use the 80/20 principle he did not get into data collection and Pareto graphs.
This is a good tool to understand what you should be focussing on but you do not intuitively know what data to collect or how to graph the 80/20 decision making.
So I think a chapter on practical examples would help the beginner.


Stop Snoring, Anti Snoring Jaw Strap - #1 Rated Device on the market!
Stop Snoring, Anti Snoring Jaw Strap - #1 Rated Device on the market!
Offered by Home Health Store
Price: 28.50

3.0 out of 5 stars Snoring but improving, 18 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this item hoping to stop snoring as claimed in the advertising, so far I have experienced a reduction but no where near enough to allow my wife a night of uninterrupted sleep.
I will continue with it as it takes time to get used to and versus the alternatives appears to be the most promising.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good self help book, 3 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book has helped me realize that there is much more to stress than you think, but the book helps you understand that it is up to you to determine how to handle the different types of stress you experience.
It challenges you with many exercises to learn and practice, in preparation to tackle your stress.

I found this book very helpful, it covers the subject better than any travel information book or teach yourself French. My wife is French and this book has enabled her to say "Look it up" when I ask for a culinary word in French.

3.0 out of 5 stars Long winded Guide, 3 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is so repetitive it could be sold as a cure for insomnia, it states the "Yes" sides case over and over and over........
Selective reading enabled me to understand the issues but I am sure there is a more concise read out there somewhere!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Hard read, 6 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The reviews convinced me to try this book but I must admit I was sceptical about it being a true story and this lasted about halfway into the book. I found it shocking that this could happen and amazed at how many people seemed to know about it but did next to nothing to help her. The hypnosis coupled to the drug I found hard to believe but gradually I found myself being convinced by the story. It was a very interesting book even though a difficult subject, I would hate someone I know to be compromised like that.
