When AdWords is EXPENSIVE...: A simple formula for more leads at lower cost in less time
When AdWords is EXPENSIVE...: A simple formula for more leads at lower cost in less time
Price: £2.40

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a DIY manual., 2 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I knew little about Google AdWords when I started this book except that if they are not managed correctly they can prove to be expensive, after reading it all I knew about Google AdWords was that if not managed correctly they can be expensive. If you want to know about the mechanics behind AdWords this is not the book for you.


Buffalo Stainless Steel Meat Mincer, 350 Watt

1.0 out of 5 stars Not good enough..., 3 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This just doesn't make the grade. Total power is not all there is to a mincer if the motor and gearing is of the right quality, but this is not the case here. The mincer really strained and got hot with it. However even if it had worked better the noise was unbearable, mincers are always noisy but this was comparable to a floor sander. Returned it to Amazon.

1.0 out of 5 stars Save yourself the bother..., 23 Mar 2013
I did not buy this, would have been quite pointless as I lived and worked in Thailand for 12 years and am reasonably fluent in the language. However my niece did buy it for an upcoming trip and then thought she would try it out on me. I've had root canal treatment that was less painful. Transliteration (using the Roman alphabet to represent Thai) can never work for the Thai language because many of the sounds in Thai cannot be reproduced in the Roman alphabet phonetically. This is not a criticism of this particular Thai phrase-book but of all of them. Learn the language using an audio method or stick to English. Thai's are nice people, don't inflict this upon them. Noticeable that previous reviews were by people who were yet to find out just how hopeless this would be. :-)

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful., 25 Nov 2010
Why on earth would anyone want a screen protector for the Desire with a slot and hole cut into it ? Wish I had read some of the other reviews, thought I did, maybe I went back and clicked on the wrong product. Even so thought I would grin and bear it whilst ordering somewhere else and put up with this in the meantime, some chance ! I reckon I'm pretty good at applying screen protectors but this defeated me, bubbles galore to add to the unsightly cut-outs. Waste of time and money.


Rules of Vengeance
Rules of Vengeance
by Christopher Reich
Edition: Paperback
Price: £11.01

1.0 out of 5 stars Poorly researched., 17 Mar 2010
This review is from: Rules of Vengeance (Paperback)
If your British and especially a Londoner you may well find the inaccuracies so annoying you give up on the book as I have. A Lieutenant is not a rank in the Metropolitan Police, the Bakerloo Line does not go through Green Park etc. All that by page 62 which was when I gave up knowing that I would find it evermore frustrating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect,...., 4 Mar 2008
This review is from: Visibility (Paperback)
In terms of atmosphere I thought this book had it all, good storyline. I didn't even mind that the research wasn't quite as meticulous as other reviewers would have me believe, transistor radios hadn't been invented and The Royal Free hospital didn't exist at that location at the time. When someone writes this good who cares!
