5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful guide to writing, 6 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is more than the usual list of cliches, which tend to explain the origin and use of a cliche: it gets to the heart of the silly things that we all tend to think from time to time and it helps prevent misleading thoughts and writing. Well done Lucy Fisher: please carry on updating and expanding this.

This review is from: Wheel of Fortune (Hardcover)
This is a beautifully produced and written book by an acknowledged expert which is full of interesting facts and background; and which also sets out some of the strategic choices faced by Russia and its oil industry: reform, or stay the same. If you are following Russia, or oil, then I think it is unmissable. (This is not a commentary on what it says - just how it says it).

This is a wonderful object which I carry with me everywhere. it loses something of the earlier Kindle I had: I cannot read it with one hand (eg on the train or tube) but need two; but it is more compact, easier to read, and you can read it in bed at night without waking anyone up. Thank you Amazon for a superb (almost perfect) product.

This review is from: Berg: Wozzeck (Audio CD)
I had known Berg, but not Wozzeck. I am listening to it now because ENO is performing it in summer. This version shows eccentricity, humour and contorted lyricism. It is a good introduction to modern operatic music - and the fact that it was written at the time of the Great War gives it poignancy. The CD allows you to download the libretto online, as seems to be the case with all Decca CDs - and this is more use than a little book with the ilbretto.

This is a wonderful presentation of two classic films which I did not know until now, except by reputation. There is more art in these than in all the television of the past year.

Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Pevsner, 13 Dec 2012

There is no need to write a recommendation for Pevsner: just to note that this is a classic guide, and encapsulates the centre of London and its architectural design. It is not for the faint-hearted, of course: it is challenging, as you would expect and wish.

If you are interested in global politics, and the movements which shape the world at the moment, then this book will satisfy you as it will open up the workings of two important strategic machines: the navies of China and India, and the broader context in which they operate. It is written by a distinguished and objective Indian thinker of some note. My own view is that it is impossible to grasp the world in its entirety without looking at these issues; and this book is an excellent guide. (I am not a military expert but advise a company on global political affairs).
