How We Invented Freedom & Why It Matters
How We Invented Freedom & Why It Matters

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read, 3 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Worth reading. A bit narrow in its view, but generally an easy read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Narrow fitting, 3 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Don't buy these unless you have very narrow feet. I don't have particularly wide feet but I found difficulty in getting them on, never mind walking in them.

4.0 out of 5 stars The year the Great War started, 12 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very readable account of the year the Great War started. The author's style is very readable. I enjoyed it while learning some history.

Philips AquaTouch AT896 Wet and Dry Shaver
Offered by Luzern
Price: £62.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Lives up to expectations, 23 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Best shaver I've ever had. Not only does it give a close shave but, unlike many shavers of this three-head design, it is easy to clean. It is a quiet and unassuming little shaver that I would recommend to anyone.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this feeble minded crap. It isn't Koestler's book of the same name., 21 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Darkness at Noon (Kindle Edition)
Load of old cobblers. Don't waste your money on a fraud. Relies only on the value of its plagiarised title.

2.0 out of 5 stars Why do public sector IT projects fail?, 21 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Facile and lacking depth. More tabloid than The Times. No real analysis. Why do big IT projects fail? This book, written in a breathless style, doesn't provide any credible answer.

2.0 out of 5 stars Rough justice, 10 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There isn't more than a brief run through of the stories of the Middle East. I can't see the point in publishing the hors d'oeuvres with no main course. Mohammad the prophet can't be dealt with in a short chapter.


The Popes: A History
The Popes: A History
Price: £5.03

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, 10 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good ramble through the history of the Papacy. It is difficult to tread the narrow line between the history of Catholicism and the history of the Papacy. I would like to have seen a larger book with a bit more on things like the Arian heresy, the Albigensiens and the Reformation. The author writes well.


Millennium: The End of the World and the Forging of Christendom
Millennium: The End of the World and the Forging of Christendom
Price: £5.69

4.0 out of 5 stars End of time, 12 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very good read taken at great speed.
Rather difficult to read for more than a couple of hours without your
brain going on strike.

Could do with a clearer timeline as it is difficult to keep track of what is going on in the different countries.
