5.0 out of 5 stars Be HUNGRY Dude :), 12 Dec. 2013
I listened to the audiobook - it is Grant reading it - at the beginning he even states he wanted to read it to add value by giving additional emphasis and tips and content that you don't get in the book. Grant is so filled with energy and a zest for life it is infectious. I hear the words "You Gotta be Hungry Dude" ring in my ears every day. The is a great audiobook - inspiring and insightful - the premise is to get you to accept that you have to do everything and anything to make sales (legitimately of course). I have read a lot of these business motivation type books and this is excellent - listen to Grant in your car on the way to work and by the time you get to work you will be raring to go!

Concept wise and instructions wise it isn't revolutionary - but there is enough new material and ideas to ensure even the most experienced sales person picks up a couple of new sales "nuggets".

4.0 out of 5 stars Some Food for Thought - But Don't Drink all the Kool-Aid, 12 Dec. 2013
I like the Malcolm Gladwell books - he is one of the great "new" thinkers of our time and his books are always interesting - I have read them all - they are very well written and easy to read. Unlike his other books, Outliers for example, where the repetitive examples to illustrate his point were interesting, poignant and factual, this book lacked a little substance and made a few too many sweeping assumptions/generalisations.

Most of the examples used seemed believable enough, however I didn't really like the inclusion of the war in Ireland example - to make claims about how the war in Ireland would have gone had the British army realised the "David and goliath theory", hugely over simplifies what was (and still is) a complex socio-religious situation on a confined island. The book could have perhaps tried to apply itself to a current situation to show how that "should" turn out if the point he is making stands true.

His weakest book so far - but still worth reading and should provide some good food for thought.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Bag, Great Price, 11 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An amazon product - and a good product - it is big enough to hold a DSLR, 2 or 3 lenses and a host of other smaller bits, plus straps on the side to fit even the largest tripod. Good value - perfect size - other reviewers have said it all.

4.0 out of 5 stars High quality - doubles your battery power., 11 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The grip fits into the existing battery slot and through a connecction inside the camera enables the grip to have all the same functionality as the camers itself (should you want it). You can turn the extra buttons on or off as you want. It comes with 2 adapters for different types of battery - which is great - I use 2x LP-E8's - they last a really long time. It adds quite a bit of weight to the camera, so if you arne't shooting from a tripod this might be a factor.

It looses 1 star because it only has one hole in the bottom to attach to the tripod or whatever you are using - it doesn thave a second little hole for the stabiliser "plug" that some tripods come with to ensure that the camera is squarely attached.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius - cloth backdrop be gone!, 11 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was strugling with a cloth material backdrop (a cheap one but still) and the creases would show up in my videos - so I needed to edit them out in post - very annoying. This 11 meter long white roll has been a revelation - the paper is high quality (you could use it for a huge painting!) it does crease a bit easily - but if you are careful and have a decent frame to mount it on it is perfect. You can cut off a chunk that has become to creased or dirty, unroll it a few more meters and start over - saves time, effort and you dont need to iron it! £40 isnt cheap - but the paper should last you a while.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Lights - Treat Them Nicely - £150 ... you cant go wrong., 11 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Be warned - There are no instructions with these, each of the softboxes comes in 7 parts - the outside black cover, 4 metal poles to stretch the cover out (they go through the white loop and into a sewed up velcro patch in each of the 4 corners, with the 4th corner having an "adjustable velcro patch"), a small inner white defuser and a larger outer defuser - they fit together nicely and allow the option of mounting vertically, horitontaly or at a 45 degree angle. The first light took about 15 minutes to put together, once I had the courage to bend the wires enough to get them into position (i was a little afraid based on other reviewers saying they were really flimsy). Second and third lights took 5 mins. There is a "sand bag" to attach as a counter weight for whichever light you want to use as a hairlight - rather than filling with sand or dirt i put my wifes ankle weights in - they were perfect.

It is flimsy sure - and if you were taking this from set to set I would be worried about the durability (and the length of time to screw in the lightbulbs!). The carry case is surprisingly sturdy.

I have these setup in a static studio for corporate videos - so durability isnt a factor. £150 ... you cant go wrong.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, Well Made, Effective, 11 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Like another reviewer i only use these for a 3m wide 11m long white paper background roll - pop them into the roll at the top once it is in position and they hold the paper amazingly well. Smaller than I expected, but they fit around all the standard size backdrop frames I have used.

This is my new favourite Paul Mitchell produce - i had been using it in rotation with the original, and super skinny, but now i use this all the time as I am using more hair spray in my hair and this really cleanses it. Great smell, lathers up amazingly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Quality Recording, 11 Dec. 2013

This is an original recording (not an audiacity mono channel reverse out) - it is a little different to the original, but not significant enough to be noticeble unless you are really listening for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple cheap and Effective, 11 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This stops me caring if it bounces around in the car while plugged into my stereo - snug fit - bright colour so I don't lose it - perfect. Not sure what the reviewers mentioning the armband are reviewing - but this doesnt come with anything. As for those complaingn it is hard to get it off ... well that is the idea isnt it? So it doesnt fall off.
