Size is what I wanted and it used to work OK. It broke and I had to throw it out. Returning is would be too much of a hassle.

Material is of average quality but thinner than I expected. Seams are starting to unravel. Why must I write 19 words.


The Voyage of Saint Brendan: Journey to the Promised Land
The Voyage of Saint Brendan: Journey to the Promised Land

3.0 out of 5 stars Brendan book, 7 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I expected a factual history but it turned out to be more of a liturgical fantasy. I'll have to look elsewhere for a history.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pre-European book, 7 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is a good read and only contains a few of what I would term as opinions versus a multitude of facts. Then again there are few records from these earlier civilisations and what survived the obliteration of their history by the incomers.
I continue to be amazed at the level of civilisation (in Eurocentric terms) at the time when Europe was experiencing the Dark Ages.

4.0 out of 5 stars ?, 16 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The product seems to be adequate for my needs. The auto cook function does not work. I decided to live with this defect because it would be too much heavy and awkward and be considerable trouble to return it.

Good recipes but require too many spices which are not available where I live.

3.0 out of 5 stars Presentation leve, 22 Sept. 2009
The book is interesting overall but very short on places of culture. Virtually all the dining and accommodation are on the high end of the price scale. This doesn't provide the reader with a list of lower cost options with email or website information. Undoubtedly the book's places to stay and eat paid a commission for inclusion.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dawn of the Dumb, 6 April 2009
Book has a great deal of gratuitous profanity and has little or nothing good or neutral to say about most things. With such venom Brooker needs to have his medications adjusted.
