5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Ad bibles, 10 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fantastic book, engagingly written and funny. Not dry at all. This new version covers social media and all the other current trends as well as the fundamentals. Very revealing about how a lot of hard work and a bit of luck can really help out in advertising.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good content, but the format gets repetitive., 10 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quite a nice book with some interesting information from some very prominent figures in the ad industry. However, he does ask the same questions to each person and while the answers are different, it does get a bit repetitive. The other reason I deducted a star is the print quality is really poor! The paper is just photocopier paper and in fact the whole book does feel like it has just been photocoppied and had a cover stuck on it, bit of a shame really.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fail amazon delivery, 27 July 2010
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I just assumed that when you pre-order a game like from any other website i bought from, you recieve it on the day of release. but i wake up to find an email saying it has been dispatched today and i can expect to recieve it on the 31st. GG amazon, i wish it wasnt too late to cancel i would have just gone into town and bought it ¬¬

on another note i played it throughout the beta and it is an awsome game. the guys bellow want to winge about bnet which is cool, i dont really like it either, but the multiplayer game is still incredibly challeneging with lots of replayability.

but yeah, sharnt be buying stuff from amazon again if im in a hurry!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best i've ever used, 12 May 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
bought this mouse matt to complement my new razer deathadder LH (also awsome)

was a little concerned at 1. how the cloth would work with laser/optical mouses as i was used to hard mats previously and 2. the price seemed to good to be true.

well i can honestly say the best matt i've used to date. the cloth is really fine so feels like a much more durable surface, tracking with my mouse is perfect, and the size on this one is awsome, great for low sens gamers. you may think "do i really need one this big", i was used to a small matt, but once you HAVE the space, your style changes and you make use of it, and movements are a lot easier. another great point is my mouse feet are gonna last a lot longer with this soft surface.

overall 5/5
great matt with good tracking and quality
great price
make sure you have the space though (MEASURE!)

4.0 out of 5 stars Changes the way you use the mouse :), 12 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So i bought the razer deathadder lh around a month ago, and so its gotten a month of hardcore gaming usage, and quite frankly i love it.
i'm a left handed gamer who previously used an ambidextrous mouse with a righthanded button setup.
when the mouse came it had a lefthanded button setup which felt really weird, however in the 5 minutes it took me to install the drivers and software, when it came to switching the buttons back to my previous right handed setup it felt unatural and so i kept it on the left-handed button setup.
all the programable functions and side buttons work great and are reckognised by all games i play.
presicion is really good, i can perform slow accurate movements as well as fast snap of flick movements.

you'll probably have read all the glowing reviews for the deathadder though and as its essentially the same, i wont go into tehcnical details, other than to say i find the scroll wheel to be pretty noisey and when you perform fast movements with the mouse the scroll sort of shakes around inside the mouse. this has no adverse affects on gameplay other than it feels a bit odd having something rattling around inside. thats th only reason i gave it four and not 5 stars. but yeah, as a left handed gamer i thought this might be a bit wierd or gimicky, but it totaly isnt.

also, if anyone's interested im using it with a steelseries qck+ mousematt and i think they're a SUPERB combination, tracking is great and because its cloth the mouse feet will last forever(ish). and it was only a 10er, just thought you guys might be intrested :)
