As someone interested in memory, I loved this book. It's a journey rather than a 'how to' or self help book, but it clearly shows the practical applications of the techniques and provides a good insight to the memory learning competition scene

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, good value for money, 11 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I suppose this one depends on what you expect for the money and what you are comparing it with. It's not fantastic, but it does the job. The quality is good, I love the freedom of bluetooth and it's simple to use. If you are looking for crystal clarity then you'll have to spend more money, but overall this one feels like good value to me

5.0 out of 5 stars the music has always been superb and now the quality is too!, 11 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just arrived today and I listened to it start to finish hypnotised by the superb quality. Robert Johnson's music is given a new lease of life and clarity, and his voice and guitar still speak with the same power as ever. Given that he would have desired his songs to be heard without the hiss and the crackle that we're so used to, I can only imagine that he'd be delighted to think that this would one day be available. If you like Robert Johnson at all (and imagine being on this page means that you already know that you do) then this is well worth getting hold of. I normally buy digital music, but I got the CDs here for the added benefit of the notes which give a new biography of his life with contributions from various well known musicians on his impact and influence.

The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared

5.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoyable reading, 2 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can understand that this is not for everyone, but personally, it really appealed to me as a brilliant piece of writing. A good reminder in a 'tongue in cheek' way not to write someone off just because they're elderly, they were not always old. It's worth spending time with an older person to listen to their life story, although they might not all be as entertaining as this book. It also boosts your knowledge of several international events throughout the twentieth century!

Not a criticism, but I wouldn't be surprised if the author had seen 'Forrest Gump'

For the price, worth a shot, you might enjoy it as much as I did!

The Naked Trader: How anyone can make money trading shares - 3rd edition

5.0 out of 5 stars Manages to make shares fun!, 16 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A gifted author, Robbie Burns actually makes trading shares sound like the most fun you can have. His book is witty, light hearted but without losing the thrust of the truth - that trading shares is a serious business. Following the advice, tips and information in the book gave me a starting point to trade and as a result I've made money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational, 16 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book inspired me to get out and start running. It's so good to read of people whose lives are so different to mine and who are capable of feats of endurance which I had no idea a human could achieve. The amount of research put in by the author is immense and his passion for the subject really comes through, not least in his own commitment to running. I would recommend this to anyone, it's truly a great read
