3.0 out of 5 stars 2nd edition, 12 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The State To Come (Paperback)
The original text, first published in 1997 was 110 pages long. The 2nd edition has a further 34 pages. The 1st edition was written in the run-up to the 1997 election. The 2nd edition appeared in the run-up to the 2015 election. Amazon do not tell you this. You could therefore buy a copy of the 1st edition without knowing that it was not the latest edition.

In contrast, Amazon makes clear that the 'The State We're In' is now in its 2nd edition and with a revised text. That informs customer more usefully.

Why aren't you consistent on this issue, Amazon? Why don't you inform your customers fully, always?

3.0 out of 5 stars musak drowns speech, 4 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
BE WARNED! The music is loud and intrusive. Often, I could not hear what Bettany Hughes was saying. Often too, the music suddenly broke in, in the middle of a sentence, so I lost the train of thought. She is good. I wanted to hear her. That made the music rubbish all the more infuriating. There's no book to accompany this mini-series, so I can't read what she has to say about the culture of Moorish Spain. The Alhambra is the most beautiful place I have ever seen.

1.0 out of 5 stars biting reviews, thin skins and professional accuracy, 27 July 2012
Mr Digby Smith complains of two adverse reviews, both by 'A Reader' - a gutless wimp hiding [twice] behind a pseudonym, he concludes. The reviews are actually by 'A Customer'. What a blunder! So much for professional accuracy. Mr Digby is, of course, something of a specialist in Napoleon's blunders. I recommend he pays attention to his own blunders. In the meantime, I shall be happy not to read another word he writes. KENNETH JOHN CARTER
