The Times History of London.
The Times History of London.
by Hugh. Clout
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Good reference for both locals and visitors, 23 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This covers a lot of ground and brings you bang up-to-date. It's not a heavy academic tome but is a very accessible book that explains and surprises very well. It is clearly organised and generously illustrated. If you want to delve into what London is all about this is a great start. It will spur you on to find out more and will urge you to look more closely if you're lucky enough to live in or visiting this great city.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great collection for a newbie!, 23 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Anthems Trance (Audio CD)
Although I know very little about trance, there are a number of tracks I've heard over time that I really like and most are included in this collection. There is a good range of material here so it's certainly not 3 CD's of 'much the same'. It may not appeal to the aficionado but I really liked it.

Great bed, well constructed. Bit heavier than expected - wouldn't want to lug this around for very long! Assembled without any probs. Will use it as a spare as well as the odd festival.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shorts that are long on features!, 25 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is my second pair and they are every bit as good as the first if not better. Durable, functional, comfortable, good looking (on and off the bike - unlike the wearer!). Wore them for serious walking in Italy just recently and they were excellent - back on the bike this week and they're performing equally well in somewhat wetter weather. Well worth the bucks - if you're looking for an excellent all-rounder look no further, you won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Leopard outruns the competition, 8 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bloc Leopard Sunglasses (Sports)
Great multi-lens eye protection. As a daily in town cyclist I need functional and robust eyewear for the unpredictable light conditions that is the UK climate. Although style is not top of my list, a pair that looks good is a bonus and I'm certainly not paying silly 'nouveau riche' prices. Bloc is a sound make and the 'Leopard' ticks all the boxes at a sensible price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great case for a good price!, 18 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This case holds the phone securely allowing unobstructed access to all ports and buttons. It's slim, lightweight and well crafted, complementing the phone perfectly for a very good price. The screen protectors are an unnecessary gimmick and a bit pointless (if you need them you would buy them anyway?!)


No Title Available

3.0 out of 5 stars WYSIWYG says it all, 2 Nov 2010

Basically a thin plastic box with a zip. It doesn't claim to be much more and isn't. If you want basic day-to-day protection from bumps and scratches, it'll suffice - good if you chuck your camera into a handbag or daysack alongside all your other junk/personal-essentials. Please note if you already use the silicon jacket with the FT2, it won't fit this Ex-Pro model.


The Encyclopedia of Human Development and Education: Theory, Research, and Studies (Advances in Education)
The Encyclopedia of Human Development and Education: Theory, Research, and Studies (Advances in Education)
by R.M. Thomas
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 41.23

4.0 out of 5 stars Twenty years on and still something to offer, 2 Nov 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Reading through the collected articles you can be forgiven for momentarily overlooking their age - many of the issues dealt with are still very relevant and can provide much comparable material to contrast with more contemporary works.

Having a range of material across the 'agencies' (education, health and social welfare) assists the acquisition of a holistic perspective upon development whilst providing the detailed and particular. Alone it provides a platform to build from and a significant work to include in most literature reviews related to this ever important subject matter.

Unless you're a collector of such publications, paying the three figure asking price would be rather foolhardy when there are a good selection of used versions still available. At these more 'sensible prices' this book is a useful resource for the professional and a fascinating read for the interested or nostalgic.

Not sure I can add more than has been said by many. A good solid album of great rock from three stunning performers. The only surprise being a 'supergroup' that works - a rarity in recent years.

4.0 out of 5 stars reat little mouse!, 21 Feb 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was all I expected from Logitech - well made, stylish and compact. It installed easily and worked perfectly. One small grumble - the battery compartment where the USB transceiver is also stored, has a rather flimsy cover (room for improvement here Logitech!). End note: good price, excellent product.
