The book is quite different from others . Unless you know the manufacturer or you look for a period in the manufacturing ceramic you will be lost in using this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars A book to liberate her sole from the past, 10 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a narrative from the author' s feed back received by publishing her earlier book. It covers a range of distorted cultural diversities under the banner of Islam in different parts of the world. Ebne Battuta had also wrote similar stories about the Islamic world when he traveled in 13th Century.
The heart of Irshad's story is the description of how her mental journey that she went through helped her to purify her mind and liberate her sole. She concludes that all Muslims should liberate themselves in the same way by ignoring their restricting cultures of mosque and their deviant Mullahs. As Budha said they should make themselves islands and be wise and ask question rather than sheepishly follow. Lots of emotion and passion.

5.0 out of 5 stars A facinating book about this mysterious potter, 17 Feb 2013

Lovely book by a well known pottery writer. My only comment is that pictures are restricted to a few collections. The book could have been more useful if photo of patterns or more varied items were shown. Nevertheless is it a very informative and beautiful book.


Samsung CLP-325 Colour Laser Printer
Samsung CLP-325 Colour Laser Printer

2.0 out of 5 stars A laser printer with less ink, 17 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had a lot of hassel with this purchase. Samsung had never clarified if the ink cartridges were all presentation kits. The B/W ink cartridge prints more than the others. I accept that full ink cartridge are not put in a printer at the point of sale and promotion. But when we escallated the issue it turned out that this particular and very popular laser printer have never had full capacity ink cartridges any way. The other models have.
It is good and reliable. The ink cartridges are twice the cost of the promotional laser printer . So instead of buying ink . Buy a new laser printer at a discount. Since all cartridges(promotional and replacements) have the same capacities.

1.0 out of 5 stars A book of barbatim and speculative writing, 17 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bring Up the Bodies (Hardcover)
I read the first book that this author had written with interest. This second novel is suffreing from unnecessary excessive verbal running all over pages. It remined me a nover from Alexander Duma (a french writer) who spent 50 pages to described the room that the his main character from his book had entered. This writer has lost the plot. She could have been praised by elite writers and other authors and distorted media but, I beleive reading it is a waste of time. Go and walk in a park instesd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kistgston Wireless Presenter, 17 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is a well made and improved from the previous model. The Old model seems to packs up after a while which is embarassing in the middle of your presentation. I have recommended this new gadget to so many U3A and probus . They all seem to be happy with it.The above model, once ordered through Amazon, arrived quickly. Thank you.

2.0 out of 5 stars Samsung CLP-325 Rainbow Colour Ink Toner, 10 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is not a good value for mony . Bacuase unlike other laser printers manufacturers this lase printer can only have LOW CAPACITY toners.
and it will cost you 112 for the set(which is the price you pay for high capacity toner for other manufacturers). If you buy a new printer At 85 you get even lower capacity toner ink but will do the job for quite a while. There is no high capacity toner for this particular laser printer.
I did not know it. The toner seller did not know it either. Only when I referred our dispute to Samsung they had to admit it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sexual Politics in Modern Iran by Janet Afary, 20 April 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book is based on a well researched materials available in the west. It is easy to read and follow. There are a few mistakes due to the authors' unfamiliarity with persian language i.e. Plane tree is translated as Cycamore. But these few items are not affecting the flow of ideas and the presentation of the arguments.The punch point of the book ,in the last chapter, is not as strong as the historical details in the rest of the book. This shows how little academic in the west know about what is really happening inside Iran.
I strongly recommend this book to whoever wants to know about the history and development of Iranian women: Their roles in the society; their struggle and their achievements in time.

2.0 out of 5 stars Netgear DG834N and Mac means trouble, 11 May 2007
I bought Netgear DG834N to speed up my internet connection and steady connection- as replacement to DG834G .To start with, all documentation were for PC and Windows . Nothing could help you to set it up. Customer service non existance . Very good at sending automatic email. Technical takes ages to get to India then they tell you they do not know anything about Apple Mac. Support is bismal. Eventually I had help from other sources and connected but speed was awful and I still have lots of sticky sites and very slow pictures openning

Here is the speed tested by an independant site: Real download 189kbs claimed to be 806kbs Upload Real 108 kbs Claimed 448kbs . Connection to various sites specially Firefox is extremely slow. Worse than DG834G

NOT RECOMMENDEd FOR APPLE USER. Try other reouters
