Essential Scrum: A Practical Guide to the Most Popular Agile Process (Addison-Wesley Signature)
Essential Scrum: A Practical Guide to the Most Popular Agile Process (Addison-Wesley Signature)
by Kenneth S. Rubin
Edition: Paperback
Price: £23.19

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice layout, but a bit long winded, 30 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book is very readable, nice font, nice diagrams and does go into various issues.
Certainly a lot more appealing to the eye than the original Schwaber scrum book, but all that pretty layout and diagrams makes a fairly hefty book, so at over 300 pages it's a big of a commitment to read it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Use it regularly, works great, 30 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Use this very regularly to charge iPhones and iPads. Taken it to various countries where its seen some funny flavours of electricity and always seems to work. No problem recommending it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Happy with this so far, 30 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Does seem to work as advertised, charged fine, ran for long time.
Sticks out a fair bit, which stops me giving it 5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff, 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Used this a top coat on some oak posts holding my gates - base stain was Sikkens Cetol HLS Plus Translucent Woodstain Light Oak. On hardwood outside, you must use this Filter top coat on top of HLS to make it light resistant. I found I needed 3 coats, and not two. I've seen how quickly HLS fades in strong sunlight without the Filter top coats and in weeks it looks bad, so don't skimp; bung 2+ coats of this on top. Works with other base stains, not just Sikkens. Remember to round off sharp edges if you can, the finish doesn't work well on sharp edges and will fade quicker.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice colour, 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Used this as base stain on some oak posts holding my front gates. Adds quite a nice warm honey colour to oak (its not very light, but pleasing to the eye for me).

I've top coated it with 3 coats of the Cetol UV filter, which you need to do on hardwood if its outside. HLS on hardwood outside is not light fast. I noticed that the sharp edges will blister under strong sunlight so its worth sanding edges slightly round to avoid razor sharp ones - the finishes will stay on better.

We'll see how well it holds up but I've heard good things about this stuff and so far so good.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's ok, 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Feels nice, looks ok, but doesn't stay up terribly well.
Doesn't have as many options as other cases either.
In saying that, you get what you pay for with cases, so if you just need a cheap leather-like feel, its fine and will stop the scratches.

Update: quite impressed with Anker customer support. They reached out after reading my review and offered a refund. Certainly will be using them again with that kind of customer service, and I have an Anker Astro E4 which I love when travelling.

Handy if you have a Lavazza machine. Safes rummaging about in boxes and because its tall and skinny, doesn't take up much space. At £20 its not cheap but feels built well (the whole thing rotates).

3.0 out of 5 stars My toddler loves it, 27 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Certainly not worth the original asking price, we got it when it was £50 and its ok. The iPhone app is pretty weird, it works but someone needs to take a chill pill and make it simpler. Our daughter loves chasing it, and throws it, which it seems to hold up to. A bit of fun and maybe a dog or cat owner would use it more but don't expect to be playing with it for hours on end..

4.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable, 27 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I always take it with me on trips and it recharges my iPhone and iPad when I can't get to power. Bit heavy but I guess that's the price you pay for more mAh. Only 4/5 since they did not supply any cables or adaptors for devices, which some competing products do. Ideally there would be a compartment or pull out cable so I didn't have to lug them about separately.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but wordy, 27 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's good follow on to their previous book (which you could skip and just go straight to this), but it is a bit word in places with multiple examples. I get the impression to bulk the book out a bit because in the end, the model they are describing really is quite simple and doesn't need a large book to describe. Still good though and worth reading if you are considering moving from traditional model to consumption economics.
