3.0 out of 5 stars Except for comfort, rapidly degrading properties., 30 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I walk a thousand miles a year, one set of boots at a time. I almost invariably walk an identical daily route. I have bought this boot annually for the past decade and value its consistent sizing and immediate comfort. I have not found it to be waterproof. I have found that the soles are wearing out more rapidly after each purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars Narrow field of view, 1 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent brand name correctly advertised but the narrowness of the field of view lengthens the time to bring the object into focus.

3.0 out of 5 stars A useful product degraded by advertising., 1 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The socks of comfortable material and appropriate length have been degraded by the insertion of the manufacturer's name around the elasticated tops. This has the effect of tightening the tops and restricting the circulation.

3.0 out of 5 stars Text useful, maps minute., 1 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is more likely that a sidewalk consultation of the appropriate map will be necessary than an impromtu consultation of the text. Therefore the maps should be on a larger scale with bigger print at the expense, if necessary of the background text.

Empires of the Sea: The Final Battle for the Mediterranean, 1521-1580
by Roger Crowley
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Broad sweep of maritime and island campaigns in epic struggle between empires and religions., 1 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Overall, magnificent. The elusive and uncommitted stance - from the loss of Constantinople until Cyprus - of the Venetians should have been further explored.

5.0 out of 5 stars A panorama with noise and dust., 1 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Probably the most pivotal engagement in Mediterranean history along the religious and cultural fault line, illuminated by thumbnail sketches of the protagonists and their backgrounds.

2.0 out of 5 stars Unclear artwork, 1 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a quick field reference in its pocket size, the artwork should be clear and grouped into similar visual impressions when in flight.
