4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting not only for chocolate lovers, 9 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Interesting book on the history of chocolate industry. Great read for chocolate lovers but not only. It also ends up by giving you a sense of European history through a peculiar and sweet angle.

2.0 out of 5 stars Average, 9 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is a very average book, compiling mostly common sense tips. I do not find it useful for the ones who are already freelancing and I have my doubts if it actually helps the ones who are starting.

4.0 out of 5 stars It has nice tips, 9 Jan 2014

This is a good book for journalism students and early career news professionals. It contains some good tips and provides a classification on the type of interviews one can make.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well this is a classic, what more to say?, 9 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a classic children's story. You can tell it was written some years ago by the language and situations described, but my kid loves it. The book is small, although tick, but easy to carry around on vacations.


The History of the Standard Oil Company
The History of the Standard Oil Company
by Ida Minerva Tarbell
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.57

4.0 out of 5 stars Complete edition of the features, 9 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a complete edition of the features published by Ida Tarbell. The copy seems of poor quality like almost homemade with a very thin cover. But the content is there and in my point of view that's the most important.


Miffy And Friends: Volume 1 - 12 Exciting Stories [DVD]
Miffy And Friends: Volume 1 - 12 Exciting Stories [DVD]
Dvd ~ Miffy and Friends

4.0 out of 5 stars It's Miffy..., 9 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice. I like it because it does not have that digital appearance, rather more traditional 3D animation. However I find the colors they use very dark.
The stories are quite simple, good for young toddlers even if their first language is not English. Actually it is a good dvd to familiarize young toddlers with English language.


Literary Journalism in the Twentieth Century (Medill School of Journalism Visions of the American Press)
Literary Journalism in the Twentieth Century (Medill School of Journalism Visions of the American Press)
by Norman Sims
Edition: Paperback
Price: £20.50

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite interesting, though not comprehensive, 9 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It has some very interesting chapters but it is not a comprehensive book on the literary journalism history around the world. It focuses mostly US and has a chapter on Latin America which could be more detailed in my point of view. It does not have anything on European journalists or other regions of the world. However it is very interesting.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not so precise, 9 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It only weights units (1 gram) and not half units (0.5). And besides that, it does not seem very precise between 1 and 3 grams. It jumps from 1 to 3 quite often when real weight is 2...
And you need to use another container to keep it clean which forces you to make additional subtractions...

Ferrari Race and Play Dual Loop in Red (1:43 scale) Playset
Offered by Mini Model Shop
Price: £24.04

3.0 out of 5 stars It's ok, but fragil, 9 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The race and loop seemed ok and resistent but on the first time we were setting it, the piece which should hold it to a table just got broked so now the playset is always dropping to the floor...

True Stories: A Century of Literary Journalism (Medill Visions of the American Press) (Medill School of Journalism Visions of the American Press)
by Ted Conover
Edition: Paperback
Price: £20.50

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but I was expecting more, 31 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Interesting book but it is too much centered in US journalism. It has a chapter on Latin America but I was looking for a wider and more global approach of the literary journalism history.
