4.0 out of 5 stars Professional, 4 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good book from an expert on the subject. You probably know some of this stuff already but you probably don't know it all. This is an excellent overview and great value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars A much needed book, 4 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You need a new PC, you go to the shop thinking you know all about it and find yourself faced with an interface that makes little sense to you. Why, Microsoft, why? I am a big fan of Dr Andy's writing but I am especially pleased by this book. Essential reading for anybody "upgrading" to Windows 8.

I am a diabetic with neuropathy in my hands. A wonderful tool that I use on a regular basis. It has never failed me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dr Andy does it again, 4 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Dr Andy is a great writer with an amazing knack of explaining complicated matters in an easy way. He has had a lot of success with his Kindle books and so, logically, has passed on that knowledge in this book. I only wish I had read it before my own Kindle book came out.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read, 4 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fine book, nicely written and well-argued. Whilst very few teachers, I imagine, would adopt the full approach that he s suggesting, many would want to add these techniques to their own eclectic approach.

I could have done with more discussion about selecting the lexis. He seems to have a generous amount of time with his students. If you only have thirty contact hours a year, it is not so much what you put into a course as what you leave out.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not much Fleet Street, 24 April 2013

She bores her friends by going on about her ex. She bored me too. I gave up halfway.

This is set in Fleet Street but it might as well be set in any office for the amount you learn about journalism.

He isn't always right but he will always make you think. Beautifully written, provocative and a great book to flip through when you need inspiration.

5.0 out of 5 stars The King of search., 7 April 2013

Dr Andy always produces good ebooks. I get everything he does. He knows so much about SEO and provides you with well-written advice that works. I put my Google number ones down to his influence.l

5.0 out of 5 stars Light my fire, 8 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Short but excellent book. The author writes really well and has a great attitude to life. His quirky humour shines through the material. A real pleasure to read as well as very stimulating. So many books in this area are badly-written and turgid. Not this one.

1.0 out of 5 stars MBA - Must Buy Another book, 20 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am sorry. I am not going to write much as another reviewer has already said things so clearly. There is nothing of interest in this book. Don't be fooled by the use of the term MBA in the title. Not worth the money, even at that low price.
