4.0 out of 5 stars Essential!, 27 Sep 2011
We have found that this is essential for a good game - you just need the simple rule if it is in the book, it's ok - even if you have no idea what it means or how it can possibly be a word! We have as many laughs at the words that are in the book as the ones that are not!

In a previous life I was a chef and we used to use these peelers all the time - I have never got on with anything esle and find these to be excellent in all respects and they last ages.

1.0 out of 5 stars The best bit is the box, 27 Sep 2011
It was not expensive so I did not have high hopes but it fails dismally to live up to my very low expectations!!

I bought this as a small radio for fishing and small it is; the only problem is it calls itself a radio! I am yet to manage to find a radio station with it which is audiable at all either at home or out and about - only crackle.

The only saving grace is that the cardboard box it comes in is just the right size, quite good quality and fits another gadget well which did not have a box. The radio will not be going out again - don't waste your money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helped us have an amazing trip, 27 Sep 2011
We found this guide to be really useful, easy to navigate around and contained a good amount of information. This certainly helped us have the holiday of a lifetime as we drove from Cape Town along to just north of Port Elizabeth. Look no further than this for a great guide of this part of South Africa. Also being specific, there is no need to carry a huge book which covers the whole of South Africa. That said, if you are travelling more widely you may want to consider this point.

4.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable but steam up, 27 Sep 2011
These were really great for the first 20 minutes or so of a session and then I found that they steamed up. I am an exceptionally hot person though and I also bought a pair for my squash partner and he loves them and has no problems at all.
