This is a superb book, bringing to life some of the great, and in some cases unknown, pioneers of Britain's Industrial History, together with the work and relationships of artists of that period.

Gillette Mach3 Turbo Refill Razor Blades - Pack of 8
Price: £14.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Mach3 Turbo Blades, 5 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These razor blades are excellent. They fulfil all my requirements for a satisfactory wet shave: they are, of course, very sharp. It's almost impossible to nick your skin accidentally and the protector strips ensure a very smooth shave. In addition to which the price is good as is the reliability of delivery. This seller is highly recommended along with the product.

Chrome Colour Hard Metal Spectacles Lined Glasses Protection Eyewear Case HC04
Offered by Sunglasses_Warehouse
Price: £7.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Rigid Spectacle Case, 17 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a well constructed product:it does not crush easily. It is difficult to open because the closure spring is strong. This is good, however, at the design stage, there should be a small indentation made centrally so that you can prise the case apart with greater ease, thus not breaking your nails

4.0 out of 5 stars Grease for Walking / Treking Boots, 17 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product is the right consistency for easy application. It performs well, in that the dubbin is absorbed by the boots, keeps the leather malleable and most importantly ensures the boots, with regular care, are water proof.

Slightly expensive but I could not find anything as good. It's highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars How we ended up slaughtering each other - The First World War: more accurately 'The First Catastrophic European War'., 17 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Margaret MacMillan is a most skilled unraveller of history. She writes compellingly and amplifies, where necessary, the narrative so that a person interested in history, but not a historian, gains peripheral information which then gives the reader a far deeper understanding of the main event or actions being described.

She describes well the characteristics and personalities of the protagonists, both the individuals and the nations in the period prior to 1914, in such a way that it is possible to discern how the the national policies and decisions evolved and were ultimately acted upon.

The book is written in a style which is both mature and readable. It is highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Aurora Paper Shredder, 4 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So far so good. It performs well: it has regular but not heavy usage. It's robust and on the limited use it's had so far I recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Cricketing Life, 4 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: CMJ: A Cricketing Life (Paperback)
This is a good book for cricket lovers: there are some inaccuracies and the quality of the print paper is poor. These criticisms should not detract from the general enjoyment.

This is a superb book, covering all aspects, geo-political, sectarian, religious and economic, of the Middle East. The way it is laid out makes it readable and compehensible and is an indispensible guide to the past and how we got here.
