1.0 out of 5 stars Very Poor Reproduction, 23 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very poor facsimile copy of an original publication.

Each line of text is missing 5-6 letters from both the beginning and end.

If there had been a 'look inside' feature, I would not have purchased this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Effective, no-frills lightbox, 26 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The bargain price of this lightbox (I paid 7.25) - and it's ability to fold down flat - were the main reasons I chose to buy it.

The four backdrops included do their job well, but need careful ironing to remove the creases. The positioning of the velcro tags that attach them to the box itself could be a little better, but considering the price, this is nit-picking.

Ideal for the beginner to play around with before deciding whether or not to take on a more complex lighting setup.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it - Cook it - Eat it!, 7 Aug 2009
This review is from: Barbecue (Hardcover)
I love cooking and have a large collection of books, but this book really stands out on my bookshelf. When I'm flicking through a recipe book, maybe 5-10% of the recipes appeal either because they sound nice, or there's a nice picture. This book stands out for the sheer number of recipes that make me want to fire up the barbecue - or grill, because this book includes directions for both.

For the first barbecue, I literally could not decide what to make, as it all sounded wonderful (quite a rarity in a cookbook, in my experience) - so I ended up preparing four recipes. My carnivorous yet usually reserved husband loved it enough to ask 'Where did this come from - it's really good!'

The photos are great, as is to be expected from a Dorling Kindersley publication. The recipes are straightforward and very easy to follow, and as already mentioned, there's detailed instructions for cooking on both the barbecue and the grill indoors - so poor weather is no longer either a problem or an excuse!

If you're looking to perk up your barbecue repertoire after years of same old same old, then buy this book. It'll be a very long time before you'll need another.
