All Hell Let Loose: The World at War 1939-1945
All Hell Let Loose: The World at War 1939-1945
by Max Hastings
Edition: Paperback
Price: £10.13

5.0 out of 5 stars A lot of war in one volume, 7 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Terrific and unbiased war history in one volume. Wee written with lots of human touches and insights along the way. Have just ordered Nemesis by same author and look forward to jumping into that after completing this book. If you are looking for a human interest story and interested in the Pacific war, then definitely read "Unbroken".

3.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating book on Tendai Buddhism, 1 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
But bit lacking on running!

Clearly very knowledgable author but little to say or write about running. Pics from20+ years before book written.

Disappointing.

Diamonds to Die For: An Inspector McLean Mystery: Volume 1 (Inspector Mclean Mysteries)
by David W. Rudlin
Edition: Paperback
Price: £10.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent first novel, can't wait for the next in the series ..., 24 Aug. 2013

Firstly thanks to Amazon UK for getting this to me by regular airmail in less than a week, when Amazon USA was estimating it would take six!

In these days of too-oft haste, slowing down down can be good ... But not when you a have a good read to die for. And this is a good read.

Clearly the author know diamonds, the industry and diamond capitals. As a great new author with several books in him, we can only hope he doesn't know the death and mayhem he portrays so brilliantly.

Keep the sparkling stories up.

A fan in Thailand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific Book, 12 July 2013

My second barefoot book and far more enjoyable than the Runners World one, albeit nothing wrong with that one either.

Great advice, exercises, visuals and a good few laughs too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smooth and rash free, 12 July 2013

Nice to end a long run without chaffing and not even be conscious about it.

Jumping in the shower and not jumping straight out again in pain is highly recommended.


Running For Their Lives: The Extraordinary Story of Britain's Greatest Ever Distance Runners
Running For Their Lives: The Extraordinary Story of Britain's Greatest Ever Distance Runners

5.0 out of 5 stars A great tale and true too, 20 Jun. 2013

Very well-written and interesting tale.

Times were certainly tougher in the past for runners, and these guys were tougher than the rest.

5.0 out of 5 stars A roller-coaster of an adventure, 20 Jun. 2013

I think I must have read about 10 David Baldacci's this year and am addicited. Well-written yarns, plenty of mayhem, blissfully short chapters!

Keep killing 'em David!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good value, 20 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I might get to love this in time, forgive the pun.

Can't help comparing to my slightly more expensive Nike GPS which is much better looking and easier to use. after one run with it pleased about accuracy, but bit disappointing by lack of proper physical manuals and also the main feature I wanted the run/walk feature is totally inaudible which kind of defeats its purpose. If you have o look when the watch has switched from one mode to the other you can do the same just with a stopwatch anyway.

Am sure it has great software and great features as all my running friends who don't take Nike seriously, but give me the glitz and excitement anytime. I'm a "shallow runner"!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very clever idea, 20 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Simple but clever idea. Not sure how sticky they are though ... had no problem during my first 10 miler in them but they sure came off easier than expected which slightly concerned me if they would go the distance on longer runs. Might be worrying needlessly though, so far so good.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! A brilliant book, absolutely loved it., 20 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Some book you love, some you hate, some you struggle to complete and then wonder why you bothered.

This has to be one of the books I've most enjoyed reading in a long time. Superb.

Full of humanity and humour with a damn fine yarn too.

Can't recommend this book enough.

Jonas Jonasson, please keep writing!
