Who's The Daddy?: The Life and Times of Shirley Crabtree
Who's The Daddy?: The Life and Times of Shirley Crabtree
by Ryan Danes
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 12.59

2.0 out of 5 stars Lazy Inaccuracies, 19 Jun 2014
e.g. Big Daddy is quoted as expressing his sadness at the drug-related death of Davey Boy Smith, an event that came five years after Crabtree himself had passed away.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job - just 1 heads up though...., 15 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works well - my daughter enjoys it. Very sturdy, expecially with the harnass & backrest for added support.

Just one con: after the first time I used it, 2 of the nuts came loose, purely from the vibration of cycling. They were super tight beforehand.
You can see here how the saddle moved after just one use:
[...]

So I replaced them with 2 x M8 Nylon lock-nuts and it holds perfectly. So maybe buy some of these, as they won't come loose like the nuts supplied. See here:

Otherwise, a great product.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible battery life, 24 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Battery life is brutal. Every time I go pick it up, it's dead. Battery only lasts 40 minutes during usage and 5hrs on standby.

1.0 out of 5 stars Glitchy & Cheap, 20 Jan 2014
Worked fine for a few months, and then it just started randomly going off on it's own. Really annoying - we're sitting inside watching TV and it just goes off out of nowhere.

Buttons also feel really cheap. Avoid.

Feels & looks nice - but the volume is too low (even when up full) and the hang-up button doesn't work on the Galaxy S3.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not too bad., 22 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quality is good, and it's a great fit for the Mac Air 13".

But the business card holder is too small to hold business cards. Can't even fit 1. Business card standard size is 9 x 5.5 cm, and the holder is smaller than that. So that's a bit of a design flaw.

Also, I keep getting sent e-mails from the seller asking me to review the item - that's annoying. I never signed up for that.

1.0 out of 5 stars Useless, 24 Feb 2013
Firstly, the instructions are very unclear. It states "place the silicone plastic nozzle inside your baby's nostril for about 3 sec and the nasal secretions will start to flow". What's the significance of "3 secs" here? Am I supposed to turn it off after 3 secs, and the snots keep flowing themselves? Or leave it on?

Secondly, it does pretty-much nothing. The baby is screaming & stressed, and little to nothing comes out.

Waste of time - stick with saline spray.

1.0 out of 5 stars DOES NOT FIT the City Select, 15 Oct 2012

Piece of crap - does not fit the Baby Jogger City Select, as advertised. Useless and expensive waste of money....!!!

And FYI - this is the exact drinks holder that Baby Jogger recommended to me when asked on their official Facebook page.


The Voice of Reason: A V.I.P. Pass to Enlightenment
The Voice of Reason: A V.I.P. Pass to Enlightenment

2.0 out of 5 stars Huge disappointment, 4 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like Chael Sonnen's public persona - and have done since he 'came out of his shell' after the Nate Marquardt fight a few years ago. He was really off the UFC radar up until that point, until he started cutting promos at the post-fight press conference. I love his 'Superstar Billy Graham' promos, he's a great fighter, he oozes charisma and is an exciting personality. So let's be clear about that - I'm a big Chael fan. I actually bought 3 copies of this book - I sent copies to 2 of my friends too, as we all love him.

But what I have no interest in are his arrogant & bigoted Republican political views - and this book is full of them - in fact, that's pretty much all you get. It's fine if he holds those views; that's his deal - but it's also safe to assume people buying his book are UFC/MMA fans - not people looking for a political lecture. But his book is terrible - it has little to do with fighting, MMA, or UFC. He talks about his love for Nixon & how Nixon was set up by the "hippy" liberal press for Watergate, he discusses Vietnam, Occupy Wall Street, God, his real estate & testosterone scandals (which still make no sense when he explains them, since he acts faux-naf when he tells both stories - Chael is the 'confused' victim in both scenarios). He also has a go at endangered species, conservationists, Bill Maher, Obama, The Godfather 1 & 2, Native Americans, etc, etc - the list goes on; and having a go at liberals (or anyone not right wing) is a running theme. And to be clear - I'm not "offended" by any of these views - I just don't care. It's boring & his points are made in such a biased & OTT manner, that he's not convincing in the slightest.

We all know his promos are OTT and we don't really take them seriously - it's mostly a laugh, so we suspend our disbelief & go with the flow - it's entertainment - but he also puts across his political agendas in the same way in this book - in an OTT promo-style, 100% one-sided, and full of hyperbole. It really lacks credibility. So it's not as if I can even take away any political lessons or education from this book, because I simply don't believe what he's saying.

Anyway - If you want to hear Chael discuss MMA, you'll be sorely disappointed. He talks about his high school wrestling coach, slags off Anderson (no new material though), slags off every other martial art, and discusses entrance music choices - that's all the MMA related material you get. The first chapter is him travelling to the Brian Stann fight - and the last chapter is him during the fight - they're pretty good chapters, although he also tries to crowbar in as many big words as possible in his descriptions, in an attempt to sound poetic and/or profound. Everything in between the first & last chapters is just conservative/republican opinion. Although I like the chapter about his Dad - that was heartfelt & legit

Also - the book is way shorter than it looks. I read it in 3 hours. And to re-iterate - I'm a huge fan of Chael's promos & fights - but this book was a huge disappointment.

I realise the clue of what this book is about is in the title - but this is being sold as a "Sport" bio book by Amazon & everywhere else, as well as being marketed by the MMA media as such. But it's 90% a book about his own personal political opinions... not sports.
