5.0 out of 5 stars Indispensable book on photographic theory, 18 Feb. 2010
This review is from: The Photography Reader (Paperback)
This book is fabulous! Gives you a solid breakdown of some of the most important essays ever written in photographic theory. It takes some intense concentration but the read is both rewarding in the end and beneficial to those who are wanting to become a photographer or critique in conceptual art.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most fun i've had out of a Thesaurus in ages!!, 9 July 2009
This review is from: The Chambers Thesaurus (Hardcover)
I just got this the other day and first impressions are that it's excellent.
Usual quality design and ease of use is what you expect from Chambers.
Text is done in a black bold style for each word which is very easy to thumb through.
In fact shame they don't do a thumb index for this Thesaurus but this is a small complaint because the book is near perfect. What I like more than anything else is that it's been created with a lot of fun and humour. I love the little proverbs and quotations throughout as well as the handy lists that tell you things like every type of thread used. Genius!! You never know when you might need to know something like that. By far the best Thesaurus around. Go buy it!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best dictionary bar none!, 9 July 2009
This is by far the best dictionary around. Not as comprehensive as Oxford's for the sheer amount of words contained but who cares. This dictionary takes out all the unnecessarily confusing stuff and keeps in all the interesting words and descriptions. The thumb index system is a revelation. Speeds up the word finding process by 10. The page design is also equally well thought out too. Words are done in an easy to read black bold style. Perfect viewing size even if you're half blind like me and not that horrible day-glow blue colour text another dictionary uses which makes my eyes go dizzy. Overall the dictionary doesn't put a foot wrong. It's like Oxford's eccentric, smarter, cooler and classier cousin. So go buy!!
