3.0 out of 5 stars Okay as a first step to improving your writing, 9 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm a PhD student and bought this on the recommendation of a professor. Essentially the book is made up of chapters which each take a recommendation and elaborate on it with examples and quizzes. The presentation of the book is stunning and it's a pleasure to read; it's also a short book so it won't take long to get through it.

In terms of content, I didn't come away from the book feeling as though I had learned a lot. Maybe the advice is more suited to new writers who haven't attended writing courses or haven't already read books on how to improve writing. That said, it's a useful refresher of concepts that you may already be familiar with just need reminding of. I'll certainly revisit this book in a few months just to go through the guidelines and remind myself of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Snug fit, feels sturdy, 9 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a nice hard case. In the past I've had cases which have been made of gel and feel like they'd be prone to damage if I dropped my phone but this case feels sturdy enough to give it a better chance of surviving a fall. The clear back means that you can still see the cool pattern on the back of the Nexus 4, although it also means you can cut out your own pattern for the back. A guide is included with the case to use as a template for cutting out the back, although this feels like little more than a screen protector - a solid guide, e.g. plastic or card, will probably last longer. The case has an almost rubbery feel to it making it nice to grip. I particularly like the buttons on the case; there are volume and power buttons built in to the sides which are actually easier to press than the actual buttons on the phone. The only downside of this case is that there is nothing to protect the front of the phone - although that's just because of the design and certainly not something to complain about.

4.0 out of 5 stars Holding up well but showing some wear, 4 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After several months of use I'm still using this wallet and it's in good condition, although it is beginning to come apart in places. The fabric is coming away around some of the card holders, probably damage from removing cards. Not really ideal for holding coins - there's a hole in the bottom where the wallet folds over (to help it bend), however small coins fall through this quite easily.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helpful and interesting, 4 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great wee book full of interesting advice and examples from real writing. I certainly hope that my papers are easier and more interesting to read as a result of reading this. Throughout the book there are lots of examples used to demonstrate what the author is talking about and that helps see how the advice given can be applied to academic writing. I'd recommend to anyone who knows how difficult it can be to read a poorly written paper.

I like that you get a protector for the back of the phone as well as the front - helps protect the glass panel on the back. Took a bit of patience to get each protector on but I'm happy with the result. Start with the back so you know what you're doing by the time you apply the front protector!

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing, 23 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is a refreshing take on travel and adventure writing, telling the story not as a linear sequence of events and anecdotes but as a series of short stories about the different aspects of the journey. A benefit of this approach is that it provides great insight into the experience. A short read but absolutely worth it.

Very impressed with how these sound given the £15 price. Strong bass, clear sound. Jack seems sturdy. Comes with 3 sizes of buds and a leather carrycase. Would buy again for this price.
