Essex Boys: A Terrifying Expose Of The British Drugs Scene
Price: 3.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A Shocking Insight in to a Murky World., 13 April 2012
A Shocking insight in to the murky world of drugs violence and intimidation. An inside view of the door staff who rather than attempt to stop drugs entering the club, basically licence the dealers to operate under their domain. In the end there were no winners only loosers.

This review is from: Pirates (Kindle Edition)
The author goes to some of the most scary and downright dangerous parts of the world, to investigate and research a major problem that is not understand by most of us living in an afluent society. I admire the authors courage in this endevour.

Another great book by a true business legend. Lord Sugar talks common sense in his very own down to earth style. Would highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars The World Has Gone Mad!, 17 Jan 2012
A very interesting and funny but somewhat depressing read. What has society come to? The author describes the utter waste of public resources, the mindless bureauracy, political correctness gone mad with catching criminals a low priority. If this is modern policing it is no wonder we had riots last summer. The author should be congratulated for this excellent book.

A fantastic read by a true entrepreneur. This book takes you on a journey from humble beginnings to the successful business man seen today by millions on the BBC TV series The Apprentice. Lord Sugar tells his storey with humour and a direct approach that I respect. His strong opinions on certain so called professionals in business, finance, marketing and the property market have strengthened my own views in this area, that most of them make it up as they go along! Following ones own instinct and common sense will get you further than some smart arse financial advisor or management consultant. After all if they were that good they would be doing it themselves not advising others.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Superb Book., 9 Oct 2011
This book gives a detailed account of the immense bravery of those on the run and the people who risked their own lives to help them. The true horror of war and the atrocities of the Nazi regime are never far away. This book should stand as a reminder to all that we should never return to those dark days again. A very well written and researched book.

A truly wonderful book to read. I had previously seen the film and was not disapointed with the book as well.

An entertaining book in the true Clarkson style. He says the things that most of us are thinking but to frightened to say.

Dunge Bottom: Tales Of An Unconventional Aviator

5.0 out of 5 stars A True Aviation Pioneer, 28 Sep 2011
One of the best books I have read in a while. As a Microlight pilot myself who was taught to fly in more recent times in the relative safety of a proper flying school, I have much admiration for these early pioneers. This book is both funny and scary at the same time. Once I started I had difficulty putting this book down. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Read, 28 Sep 2011
This review is from: Saddle Sore (Kindle Edition)
The author went on an adventure that most of us will only ever dream about. A journey of both physical and mental endurance, with some interesting facts and history of the places he visited. Steve gives an insight in to the American culture and way of life, to which a decade later much has found its way in to our daily lives in the UK.
