Hugh Johnson's Pocket Wine Book 2016
Hugh Johnson's Pocket Wine Book 2016
by Hugh Johnson
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £4.00

5.0 out of 5 stars An essential little but comprehensive wine guide, 28 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Hugh Jognson's Pocket Wine Book has been published annually since 1977: 40 years next year! It has built-up an imoressive and well-deserved reputation, and this iteration of the annual is no exception.

I agree with the blurb's description of the book: this is an essential reference book for everyone who buys wine. What is provided is a comprehensive commentary on the wines, growers and regions of the world. He tells you which vintages to buy, and which to drink now or cellar, and offers ideas about food pairings.

What you get is a comprehensive map for every region followed by a description of the vineyards/wineries and rating.

The text is clearly presented over its 340 pages, and is easy to understand.

This is a terrific book, indispensable.


Go Stationery Monochrome Polka Exercise Book - Black
Go Stationery Monochrome Polka Exercise Book - Black
Price: £4.00

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent enough; not great, 18 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a 28-leaf notebook, of fairly standard size.

The design is nice enough, and distinctive, but the paper quality is rather too rough for my liking and there are not enough pages.

It's like the type of book you might have written in at school. The paper is a good colour (off white, so easy to read), but it's not smooth enough.

There are better books out there: some nice Italian ones, and the like.

4.0 out of 5 stars A pleasing result, 14 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
What you get in the box are the two pads, the cord, and the unit that you carry around.

The unit is easy to use, although the instructions could be a little clearer about what one should look for with the settings, rather than just saying what they're for.

Nevertheless, upon trying on the back of my shoulders, it did relieve slight pain and seemed to un-knot the muscles there: a constant complaint of mine.

Overall, I'd recommend this. It's not an electrical impulse but a mechanical action.


X: The Experience When Business Meets Design
X: The Experience When Business Meets Design

3.0 out of 5 stars Unreadable in places, but some good content, 30 Dec. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Whilst a lot of the book is excellent content wise, as others have commented, parts of it are unreadable. A lot of the diagrams towards the end are far too small, and for many I needed a magnifying glass. For others, that was no good because the text was too small for even the pixels.

I reckon the book is published in an incorrect size. I received what looks like the finished product; nowhere was it advised that the book was a proof copy, so I can only presume it is the finished product. It is very odd indeed.

The publishers need to sort this out. If you can't read it, and you won't be able to, then it's not worth buying.


Philips BT5200/13 Series 5000 Beard and Stubble Trimmer with 17 length Setting
Philips BT5200/13 Series 5000 Beard and Stubble Trimmer with 17 length Setting
Price: £65.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely beard trimmer, 22 Dec. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
There have been lots of these beard and stubble trimmers available over the past few years, and they have come on on leaps and bounds now that such style is very much acceptable for men, even those in 'smart' jobs. Almost everyone has stubble, although not all of those look after it well, and a well-looked after beard or designer-stubble are infinitely more attractive than those that are not.

So, to this latest iteration from Philips, it is very nice indeed. The settings for length are precise, and capture the beard very well. The horizontal wheel for the setting is very good because it means that pressing against the skin whilst shaving will not lessen the setting: it is "locked in", as Philips's description says.

It's waterproof, so it can be rinsed under the tap after use.

My one disappointment is that it doesn't come with a carry case, hence four stars, not five.

Great value, I add to every wash to protect my washing machine from the damage associated with hard water. It also means that one uses less detergent, as this softens the water.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific book, 21 Dec. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I am very impressed by this biography of Churchill.

The story of WSC's life is told through pictures, both of the great man himself and artefacts that surrounded him, such as school reports, speeches, scenes, but mostly Sir Winston.

It's a handsome volume, too, beautifully produced on excellent paper.

It's a really nice way to tell a biography of someone, using pictures and the story surrounding their production.

For anyone with even the remotest admiration of the man who The Queen said we all owed a debt to, this is an insightful read, and a must-have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for a small flat, 19 Dec. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have a small two-bedroom flat, and this is perfect. It's small, so easy storage, you does the job brilliantly. The telescopic main bit doesn't lose suction when extended, and the bagless deposit of the stuff collected is easy to carry out.

The cable rolls back inside it very easily, and the whole thing is neat and great. It's not too loud, too.

I really can't fault this.


Wahl ZX902 James Martin Food Processor with Blender, 2 Litre, 800 W

4.0 out of 5 stars Great kitchen food processor, 12 Dec. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I don't know what an outstanding Food Processor is. Whatever that might be, I know that this is very good! There are loads of things I can do with it, and for the money (although I received this to review) and looking at other similar items, you get a lot for the layout of about £80.

The blades are very well made and sharp, which is what it is all about. There are plenty of good ideas, and the set up is straightforward and simple.

My only gripe is storage, although I expect this is true for all such things. One needs a fairly decent sized kitchen and/or cupboard. That is to be expected, but I wonder if there are designs out there that allow better packing of these things together.

Nevertheless, this is a great piece of kitchen kit, which I am sure will continue to work really well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely coffee, 8 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You can't beat, in my experience, genuine Nespresso pods. Ok, so the Nespresso people have made it so their newest machines only work best with its own-branded pods. Well, there it is.

And these do taste great and produce a lovely creama and coffee.
