Air Traffic Control Handbook: The Complete Guide for All Aviation and Air Band Enthusiasts
Air Traffic Control Handbook: The Complete Guide for All Aviation and Air Band Enthusiasts
by David J. Smith
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 14.73

5.0 out of 5 stars Very informative book on Air Traffic Control, 27 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is a great introduction to the procedures and principles of air traffic control. Everything is clearly explained, often with photos or diagrams. Although, by the nature of the subject, it uses a certain amount of technical language, these expressions are explained or written in a way that a non-technical person can understand. Typical ATC frequencies are provided, together with an explanation of aircraft approach procedures, etc., and the significance of runway markings and lights. Much else is included in this highly useful work. Excellent for reading and/or reference.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding programmable mouse for price., 26 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I use this mouse constantly for office work and web browsing in particular. It's a multi-button mouse, including backward, forward, DPI settings, tilt scroll wheel and double-click button. The colour of the 'breathing' light on top can be changed. Sensitivity is very good. The mouse has numerous programmable options, and the ability to save different profiles. The mouse is provided with six weights, which can be added if the user feels that it is too light weight (There are no batteries to add weight). Although I'm right-handed, I prefer to use my left hand with a mouse. This is a right-handed mouse, but I found no difficulty at all in using it with my left hand. I can still reach all the buttons with ease.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptionally good value, 26 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For the price, this mouse is exceptionally good value. It includes backward, forward, and DPI buttons, etc., as well as the usual mouse buttons. The additional buttons are not programmable, however - although, at the price, this is hardly surprising. The scroll wheel on Perixx mice are more comfortable to use than many other types. Wired mouse. Lightweight (no batteries). More sensitive than Microsoft or Logitech mice. Low profile, probably more suited to those with small or medium size hands. I don't know about its suitability for gaming, as I purchased it only for office work and web browsing. (I would suggest the Perixx MX-2000 or similar for gaming, as that one is programmable.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for referencing Axis aircraft, 26 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book provides a very good and sufficient summary of German aircraft flown during WWII. It includes colour photos and tables, but no cutaways. Great reference work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for cutaways and descriptions., 26 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a first class book of aircraft cutaways. Bill Gunston has provided an excellent description of many WWII types. The cutaway drawings were previously published in magazines, but with some inaccuracies in the captions. Bill has corrected these. All in all, a great book for reading and reference.


A Street Cat Named Bob: How One Man and His Cat Found Hope on the Streets
A Street Cat Named Bob: How One Man and His Cat Found Hope on the Streets
by James Bowen
Edition: Paperback
Price: 3.85

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic story of human and animal bonding, 17 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is a compelling read. When I began reading, I couldn't stop at the end of the first chapter but had to read several chapters at a time. It tells the story of a stray cat and a former addict - James Bowen. James adopted the cat (or rather the cat adopted James!). The books tells how Bob (the cat) follows James everywhere, travelling with him on the buses into the centre of London. It then sits down on James' guitar case while he begins busking for the day. As can be imagined, Bob proves to be a great attraction. The book details the ups and downs of James' life, and tells how much of a help Bob the cat was to him at a very difficult time in his life. This story opens our eyes to the lives of people like James and the loneliness they often endure even on streets crowded with people. Bob is now a star in his own right, and he appears in a number of YouTube videos, together with James.

Compact and efficient lighting set. Good white light beam from front LED. Very clear red rear light, which can be used in either fast flashing or static mode. I understand UK law now permits the use of flashing red rear lights. Recommended lighting set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent documentary, 26 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I first watched War In The Air [DVD] in the 1950's, when I was 9 years old. I enjoyed it then, even as a child. I have often wanted to see it again, and I have enjoyed watching the 3-set DVD version. It's a timeless classic, and contains footage that is not shown elsewhere. Well worth getting if you're interested in the historical battles of the RAF.


Holy Bible King James Version Study Bible
Holy Bible King James Version Study Bible
by Thomas Nelson Publishers
Edition: Leather Bound

4.0 out of 5 stars A very useful study Bible, 12 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This KJV leather bound Bible has proved to be a valuable addition to my library. The study notes are adequate for the lay person, but they're not copious. The Bible has a good cross-reference system. Alternative text renderings are given in the margin. Biblical doctrines, themes, etc. are explained in footnotes or boxouts. The study notes have been written from an arminian, pre-millennial, and dispensational perspective; although other (Reformed) points of view are expressed occasionally in the footnotes.

5.0 out of 5 stars More favourites from Jimmy Shand, 26 Mar 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another great CD from the master of Scottish dance music - Jimmy Shand. Sadly, no longer with us - but his music lives on and touches the lives of those who heard him in the past and who appreciated his unique sound. Fantastic CD for those who love Scottish dance music.
