5.0 out of 5 stars Great book. Meticulously researched, 12 July 2014

Great book. Meticulously researched...very insightful. Structure could be improved and a little bit more detail about the gold mining industry and on the dynamic of the relationship between bullion banks and miners would have been a nice compliment to fill the story...but as I said it is still a very good book.

Really nice item for the price. Not very difficult to put together...and a true pleasure to work with proper wood for a change. Quick delivery...although at 6 am.

Very poor quality item, Power tools a must to put together. Some protective gloves as well as you will literally have to bend parts of it into shape to put the screws in. The plus side is the price. . .yet if you google it you can find it even cheaper...I found out too late.

This bed is terrible. The bed slats are the worst piece of design I have encountered thus far. They fall through very easily making the bed unusable. The matter is not helped by the fact that there no actual side slots for the actual wood so even if you were to buy replacement bed slats for a standard bed of these dimensions they would only be 1365 mm wide....making them just an inch too narrow. SO, the bright point which warrants the two stars is the mattress...which is decent. I am now left with an unhappy tennat and a Monday morning appointment with the local DIY store for a made to measure wood cutting session...so in summary... if you can, buy a different bed. P.S. I have to give credit to the seller...the delivery was very, very speedy...

A very comfy pair of socks that saved my life...after buying a new pair of hard leather oxford cap toes shoes for work I felt like I was going to die...or at least get my feet amputated. These socks really helped.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best thing out there, 30 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having gone through quite a few hair products...i can safely say this is the best thing out there. Holds well, is remoldable, wash out easily with warm water and doesn't cause any hair greasiness, skin irritations or spots...pretty much does exactly what you would want it to.

The Match King: Ivar Kreuger and the Financial Scandal of the Century

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book, 30 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is one of the best books on the finance profession that I have come across. The book rings true today more than ever and should serve as a timeless reminder that crooks can wear suits too. That said...it is difficult to feel any kind of negativity towards the main character as the author does a very good job of painting a picture of the challenges that Ivar had to overcome at the time. This story fits well with other books that deal with the period such as the House of Morgans or Lords of finance...and should be read by anyone interested in how family empires are started and kept. In all honesty...I cannot recommend this book highly enough - especially if you work or have an interest in finance. Ivar was the mind behind some of today's most widely used financial instruments such as convertible bonds. His life story truly is one of the most fascinating reads of the year for me and will likely be something I will read again. On the downside I do have to say that the writing does on occasion show some weakness...nevertheless having not heard this story before it was more than gripping enough to get me to read the whole thing in a few days.

4.0 out of 5 stars An entertaining read, 30 Oct 2013

This review is from: Ugly Americans (Paperback)
This is a pretty entertaining read accessible to anyone regardless of profession. There are very few references to finance that require any knowledge of the industry. You will not find any 'golden nuggets' here. Simple Index re-balancing trades and geographical arbitrage are pretty much the big trades of the book. The best part is the ambiance and the picture the book paints of the local culture in Asia and how that compares to the equivalent in the west - this for better or for worse has not changed much. One has to only look at the recent Mizuho bank scandal where they loaned money to the Yakuzza to see that. While it has parts to it that seem a little far fetched...makes a for a very entertaining fast paced book. Worth a read...and I hear there is a film in the making.
