1.0 out of 5 stars Very Poor Sound Quality, 24 Feb 2014
The music is good - typical middle period Ahmad Jamal. However this download is spoilt by the feeble and weak sound quality compared to other downloads from Amazon. I have to turn the volume full up on my i-pod and speaker system and this distorts the recording. A shame really. I shall be asking Amazon for a refund on this one!

1.0 out of 5 stars No pictures or maps - impossible to refer to footnotes, 5 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First of all - a fantastic book. The Kindle edition however is badly let down by having no photos or maps. Trying to refer to the footnotes regularly by going back and forth to later pages makes it impossible to enjoy.

You can buy the hardback book from Amazon for 1p (!) plus postage and this is a much better way to enjoy this superb book. I shall be asking Amazon for a refund of the Kindle charge as without photos or maps, the book is incomplete.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very useful, 26 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good general guide - especially the summary descriptions of the main battles of The Great War. Also good on places to see. Only downside is misleading/out of date information about eating out in Ypres. Contrary to the glowing descriptions in the book, we found it difficult to find a good quality meal in the town. The eateries in the Grote Market are all glorified burger bars selling very expensive and dull food. As for wonderful Belgian 'frites' - prepare yourself for the stodgy oven-cooked variety.

However as regards battlefields and the war - an essential guide book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for the price, 2 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After trying several other devices, most of which did not work, I purchased the TeckNet. To my surprise it coupled well with my in-car radio and gives a good clear sound. The main problem was finding an 'empty' fm radio channel which in my case turned out to be 107.9. Good value for the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Value, 10 Jan 2013
For the price, this item is very good value. Leather and manufactured quality is good. The cover gives good and neat protection to the kindle.Only downside would be the slightly strange design - who needs 4 credit card slots and wallet functionality on their kindle. Nevertheless it's still very good for the price.
