5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect book for the serious amatuer., 17 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Like most developers my bookshelf is creaking under the weight of far too many expensive books that have barely been touched. The exception is this one - or to be precise, an earlier version of this book - which is now tatty and falling apart, hence why I've invested in the latest version and got the kindle version too.

My programming genre (look at me trying to be cool - I'm a developer ffs - the closest I'll get to being cool is winning a contract somewhere cold! Apple's Genius Bar bods should take note!) is databases, but like to dabble occasionally with web development at home. This book is perfect for my needs.

Good quality, looks good, makes me feel like I'm a real drummer now. Gone are the days of forcing the kids to risk their digits reclaiming sticks from places my fingers are too fat to reach.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent purchase., 17 July 2014
This product is brilliant. Sturdy, very easy to use - was almost put off by the review that said this wasn't an ideal product if you need to take the ipad out of the stand and put it back in regularly. Please I took the risk. Not this stand is good for either size of iPad and works well with other tablets too, so if like us you have a family with a variety of products, this will work with all.

This is actually the third pushchair we bought. The O'Baby was too big it wouldn't fit in the car with everyone in it. The Mama and Papas one fell apart too easy. This one though - fits in the car, very easy to open and close and feels very sturdy. Very well made, easy to use - in short, ticks all the boxes and looks nice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly the best yet!, 6 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Looking at other reviews, it appears there's a mixed opinion on this one. Personally I thought "A Wanted Man" was the weak link - seemed to drag on for a long time at the start and then end a little strangely with the conclusion not quite justifying the dramatic build up.

This one however had me up through the night unable to put it down - and it may well be the first I've gone back and re-read straight away. Right from the start you're given points to ponder and as with all the Reacher books, you pick up the clues along the way and try to work out which are hints and which are red-herrings. Of course there's the attractive woman to keep Reacher satisfied so he can focus on what matters. There's the thugs who are all walking and talking funny now - and then there's the twists that'll keep you guessing. If there is one cricism, then it's in the ending again - all a bit quick and slightly anti-climatic.

Looking forward to Reacher 19 already.

This review is from: Emerald (Kindle Edition)
Suffering withdrawal symptoms are reading Lee Child's latest Reacher installment inside 48 hours, a relative recommended this book as a must-read. Now I have Pat McVeigh withdrawal symptoms! I'm aware this is the author's first published work and to be fair, there are a couple of areas where this is obvious, but if would be cruel and unjust to describe this simply as a "great first effort". It's so much more than that. The plot is excellent and the flow of the book works extremely well in keeping the reader guessing without being confusing. Already looking forward to the second book - hope it isn't too far off!

If you're new to Excel this isn't for you. If you're already a professional developer, looking to be an expert in developing Excel too, then seriously, look no further. This is the book the professionals use.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of the Reacher short stories to date, 22 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Reacher is in NY for the first time, alone and just 16 years old. But already he's doing what he does best - drinking beer, kicking butt and chasing girls. Brilliant "novellette" to whet the appetite of those impatiently waiting for Aug 29th!

Not really sure what you can say about these. They're as described, definitely good value for money and do what you expect.
