5.0 out of 5 stars Really well explained workouts., 2 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As well as a beginners guide to indoor training, Rebecca includes 20 varied workouts. Each one is well structured with specific aims and tips for adjusting the workout as your fitness progresses. There's more than enough ideas to help you build a complete programme and, importantly, enjoy indoor training during the winter months.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fixed watch back in seconds from opening the box, 1 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The press is sturdy and easy to use. Within a minute or so of unpacking the press I'd replaced a couple of stubborn watch backs. Plenty of adapter disks are included for all kinds of case. Very good value even if you only need to use it a couple of times to replace your watch batteries.

1.0 out of 5 stars Difficult to separate out opinions from facts., 21 Nov. 2011
As an engineer and a lover of great sound, I was looking forward to getting an in depth understanding of audio technology.

To me however, the author does not maintain enough distance between himself and the Hi-Fi industry to provide a critical explanation and assessment of the technologies. Too often his opinions reinforce the audio sector's brilliant marketing strategy: super high prices are used to make just plain expensive look like a bargain whilst 'good enough' should be avoided. When writing for an aspirational hi-fi magazine this I can understand, but in a 'comprehensive guide' I expect a bit more balance.

The technical explanations themselves mix levels of detail, science, pseudoscience and opinion, and, without references or evidence beyond the authors own experience, it is difficult to asertain any relationships between a technology and a consistent impact on the perceived sound.

With a little critical distance this could have been a great achievement but is actually an exercise in Hi-Fi marketing sycophancy.
