Eight Classic Albums [Audio CD] Carmen Mcrae
Eight Classic Albums [Audio CD] Carmen Mcrae
Price: £7.49

4.0 out of 5 stars One out of eight ain't bad., 31 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As with other "Classic Albums" there are more albums than there are CDs, so, if you are loading into iTunes, be prepared to do some editing to separate the eight albums. On seven of the eight, Carmen is backed by orchestral accompaniment which I find rather saccharine. But on "Lover Man and Other Billie Holliday Classics" she is singing with real jazz muscicians (Nat Adderley, Lockjaw Davis, Norman Simmons, Mundell Lowe, Bob Cranshaw, and Walter Perkins.). Since a single copy of this album costs more than the Eight Classics, "Lover Man" makes this a worthwhile purchase.

There is, as at 13 December 2015, no Windows 10 driver for this printer. The Canon web site promises one in April 2016. The device as shipped does not include the necessary USB cable nor starter quantities of ink or paper.

5.0 out of 5 stars Should inspire a good discussion, 2 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read the Kindle edition, then bought four print copies to give to friends. This is a "provocative" book and I hope it will provoke spirited discussion, if not complete agreement, among my friends. I have lived in Britain for nearly 40 years so I have witnessed the change described in the book; as an American, I found it interesting to compare the British class systems - both traditional and the 21st century version - with the American system. I hope to find a book titled "American Social Class in the 21st Century" or something similar.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but needed a tighter focus, 24 Nov. 2015

Interesting but it would have been a better book (or two books) if she had concentrated on the culture of either Britain or the USA and not tried to combine them in one stream

This review is from: 7 Classic Albums (Audio CD)
Great music & sound quality. However, the seven albums are split across four CDs and several albums are split across two disks. This makes importing into iTunes not straightforward. It can be done but be prepared to do some file manipulation to make each album appear separately iniTunes.


The U.S. Navy and the Cuban Missile Crisis
The U.S. Navy and the Cuban Missile Crisis
by United States Naval Academy
Edition: Paperback
Price: £10.05

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth £10.05 - but certainly not $150, 1 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was puzzled when I first opened this book. The Amazon UK web site lists the "author" as United States Naval Academy and that is what the cover says. I opened the book and found I was on page 1 - no title page, no date of publication, no author. And there clearly was an author - a person, not the Academy - because the end notes list several sources as "interview with the author". I decided that my copy was defective but I checked the "Look Inside" on the Amazon.co.uk site and found that what I had received was just as shown. I did some further research by doing a Google search for the name of the book and found what I was looking for on the Defense Technical Information Center web site. The book is a Trident Scholar Project Report, written in May 1990 by Midshipman First Class Robert M. Beer. The link to what I found is http://www.dtic.mil/dtic/tr/fulltext/u2/a227065.pdf. You can download the entire text of the book free of charge from this link, instead of paying the £10.05 listed on the Amazon.co.uk web site - or the $150 advertised on Amazon.com (yes, $150!)

The book makes reference to a number of sources not usually cited in Missile Crisis literature - mainly interviews with Naval officers who were involved at the time. It's conclusions are (intentionally) contentious and not all readers will agree with them. It must be borne in mind that this is essentially an undergraduate term paper, though that does not invalidate the conclusions nor its sources. I don't regret spending the £10.05 for the paper copy - though I am glad that I didn't lay out the $150 to the US site.
