English Cathedrals (Architecture and Planning)
English Cathedrals (Architecture and Planning)
by Edwin Smith
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £19.76

4.0 out of 5 stars Valuable record of some valuable work, 23 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good to have even a second-hand copy in reasonable condition. How quickly work fades into the past and becomes hard to recall.

Cheaper than original Sony products. There's a 2 year gaurantee; so time will tell if this was a sensible purchase or not/

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent SatNav, 2 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
No trouble setting it up (took a bit of time connected to the computer to get started, though) but no trouble since then.
Easy to set the destination (I use postcodes). Commentary and stated names of roads into which you are turning are excellent and a great help.
Re-calculation of route (on a complex housing estate) when I "did my own thing" at the beginning was fast and helpful.

My reservation concerns the use of such technology more generally. There is nothing to limit the route depending on the size of the vehicle! Hence one is apt to meet a large truck in a lane where it has no sensible right to be. However, this is a general point which satnav manufacturers might address, and is NOT a criticism of this TomTom


Sony A7 / A7R: From Snapshots to Great Shots
Sony A7 / A7R: From Snapshots to Great Shots
by Brian Smith
Edition: Paperback
Price: £18.99

3.0 out of 5 stars A useful primer for aspiring photographers usinga very advanced camera, 2 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found this more useful than the Matsumoto/Roullard book, covering the same camera. Smith is better at covering a range of shooting situations, but the appendices (also available as a downloadable pdf) are a better complete coverage of the controls.
That said, however, I await David Busch's book on the same camera(s) with eager anticipation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Puts recent happenings in perspective, 18 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very worrying! I read stuff I remember happening and it is history! (What does that make me?) Very good at putting things in perspective. Just who can one count as one's friends?

A Short History of England
A Short History of England
by Simon Jenkins
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £20.00

4.0 out of 5 stars A very readable overview, 18 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The emphasis is on "short". But it is an easy read (if you can stand the gory bits!) and gives a good overview of a substantial period of time. It is Jenkins as standard, and very worth a read.
