5.0 out of 5 stars A Superb Gift, 1 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this boxed compass as a coming of age gift for our 'scout' grandson. It arrived at my house in England, from India, well within the promised time. It had been packed with loving care, so I was assured that I had made a good purchase. The box is finished very well and the compass is everything the seller promised. It is a fine instrument, thus it feels right that I shall be presenting a fine gift. With good quality for the price, and delivery on target, what more could anyone ask?

Good to handle, quiet in use, good result without taking too long, and a fast recharge time. What more is there?

4.0 out of 5 stars Robustly reliable., 29 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
No batteries, no gimmicks, works every time. Nobody's going to borrow this one, which is why I had to buy another one anyway.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly relaxing., 29 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having now played Haydn's Paris Symphonies a few times, I found the music to be typical in that each time I picked up on a phrase not previously noticed. No hesitation in recommending this recording, but without any technical lingo. Most relaxing but commands attention, typical of Haydn.

1.0 out of 5 stars SHORT WORKING LIFE, 15 April 2014
Having bought this one from a well known petrol station, I found that it was good for about six months. After that it became erratic. Battery replacement is not easy as it involves a strip down. Perhaps mine was a one off!

5.0 out of 5 stars Infectious rhythm and harmony., 13 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Original Album Classics (Audio CD)
Originally I bought this set for our daughter because she was a child during their era. She didn't get it. Having had a busy life when the children were young, this style of music tended to escape my attention. Now that I'm retired I can appreciate how good Boney M were. I defy any listener to sit still when their music is in the air. Like all good works, their style is timeless and, half a century later, it ought to get more air time than it does.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, 13 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Being an amateur listener of 'the classics' I've found that radio programs tend to play music within a limited selection. Perversely, my early pleasure from classical music was from works by Isao Tomita, created on a synthesiser, but then sought the original works. Occasionally, having heard piano music without orchestral accompaniment, I found that it can be quite delightful. Now I'm exploring beyond the world of Beethoven, Mozart and Debussy. I know no technical terms, but I know what I like. As for CDs in general, what beats the radio is not having to listen to all the 'ers and ums' from amateurs trying to sound professional with prepared scripts.

Divorce & Splitting Up: Advice from a Top Divorce Lawyer
by Marilyn Stowe
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Good advice at low cost., 13 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Concise and unbiased advice has been set out in a manner which is easy to follow. Assuming that one would be under considerable stress beforehand, reading this guide helps to get things into perspective without actually telling the reader what to do. When in turmoil, the right path is not easy to find but Divorce & Splitting Up by Marilyn Stowe gets to the point of showing a way forward, depending on one's own circumstances.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stress Buster, 13 April 2014

This review is from: Dawn Chorus (Audio CD)
Having access to the natural delight of morning birdsong at any time within the twenty four hour day, the escape from stress is at hand. One wonders why such recordings get such little air time. What would complete the experience is the aroma of woodlands. Does anybody bottle it?

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a small world!, 13 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good size without sacrificing detail, accepting that sometimes what you seek is in the crease of the book, but that's common to all maps. Even the small print is clear.
