Fisher Space Pen Cap-O-Matic Ballpoint Pen - Matt Black
Fisher Space Pen Cap-O-Matic Ballpoint Pen - Matt Black
Offered by Creston
Price: £11.30

2.0 out of 5 stars despite the good reviews for this pen, 25 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sadly, despite the good reviews for this pen, it did not work reliably. I bought it for someone who lives in a very warm flat. They have trouble with ballpoint pens drying out and not writing reliably. I thought the technology behind this design would solve that problem. It didn't - this pen worked no better than a standard cheap ballpoint pen.

The Upright Thinkers: The Human Journey from Living in Trees to Understanding the Cosmos
by Leonard Mlodinow
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £15.90

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 16 Oct. 2015
A nice overview of the development of human thought and explanation of the physical world. The real pleasure for me came with the final section on quantum mechanics. The history of scientists' work on it in the early 20th century, with all the frustrations and unbelievablilty involved, has just the right level of simplicity and insight. For the first time I feel I have a grasp of the issues quantum theory raises, and an understanding of it (though inevitably a simple one!).

The Quantum Age: How The Physics Of The Very Small Has Transformed Our Lives

Price: £8.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a Primer on a Difficult Subject., 29 Aug. 2015
Left me perplexed. Not as clear an explanation of quantum physics and its applications as I had hoped. I found myself regularly lost, only to skip to the next topic when I got lost again. As other reviewers have mentioned if you don't have a certain level of education already in this field, then this book won't help.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wife not happy.., 21 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I followed the instructions and it has dyed my denim jacket the correct colour. Unfortunately it has also dyed the the rubber door seal of the washing machine...despite the instructions saying it wouldn't. Wife not happy...at all. Other users have left feedback saying that they haven't had a problem but future buyers should be aware that this obviously is a risk, and should consider carefully before purchasing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mixed Bag leaning towards Awful, 3 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Haywire [DVD] (DVD)
Plot confused. Acting wooden [not a necessity when her martial arts are excellent]. Totally weird ending that seems to usher a second film that I won't be watching [if it gets made]. But the main problem is that the ambition of the filmmakers is exceeded by their ability to pull it off. Result- a mess.

An excellent quality cover/case for the iPad2. Fits snugly, real leather of good quality. Protects your beloved iPad in the manner befitting it. Propping-up bit to rear works very well. Cost from the Seller was very cheap considering the quality. Love it!

Unfortunately these fell apart within four hours. Not the sellers fault, just beware goods that are too cheap to be true.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not For Anyone, 17 April 2009
This book misleads. As a resident of London, the factual errors indicate to me that this has clearly been written by people who have never visited London themselves. Maybe they did their research by googling. Local Post Offices are missed out, but ones a mile away are mentioned instead; one distinct 'village' has two sections in the guide 20 pages apart!; suitable shops are ignored, whilst unsuitable ones are mentioned. slightly naff supermarkets are all listed even if they are nowhere near the district, but local ones are ignored. This cut and paste job from Mars will bewilder the poor purchaser, leaving them turning round and round as they try to match the descriptions in the book with reality!
