Fancy discontinuing this product line. The new management team at Crocs must be mad!

Nice bit of kit but somehow thought it would give off a louder sound. Bought it to replace Chinese made one I left in a hotel that wasn't as fancy, about same size but boy, did it BOOM!

How To Get Filthy Rich In Rising Asia
How To Get Filthy Rich In Rising Asia
by Mohsin Hamid
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £14.99

5.0 out of 5 stars This Wonderful 'Self Help' Book Improved My Emotional Intelligence, 12 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Been a (US) Amazon member since 1997 and never written a book review. This book is so inspirational and brilliantly written that here I break my duck (Google ‘cricket’ and you’ll get it!). The first person journey Mohsin Hamid uses to describe our modern globalised world is simply ingenious. This book covers abject poverty, love, sex, religion, urbanisation, organised crime, terrorism, old age, entrepreneurship, starvation, agriculture, hygiene and the infinite capacity of the human spirit to rise above all of these things. The downside is that if you think you can write, this author will make you feel ‘word-ly’ inadequate. How about this excerpt from the first chapter as our protagonist starts his travels:

“Where once your clan was innumerable, not infinite but of a large number not readily known, now there are five of you. Five. The fingers on one hand, the toes on one foot, a minuscule aggregation when compared with shoals of fish or flocks of birds or indeed tribes of humans. In the history of the evolution of the family, you and the millions of other migrants like you represent an ongoing proliferation of the nuclear. It is an explosive transformation, the supportive, stifling, stabilizing bonds of extended relationships weakening and giving way, leaving in their wake insecurity, anxiety, productivity, and potential. Moving to the city is the first step to getting filthy rich in rising Asia. And you have now taken it. Congratulations.”
Hamid, Mohsin (2013-03-05). How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia: A Novel (Kindle Locations 162-167). Penguin Group US. Kindle Edition.

As a man who lives in a logical, virtual world of bits and bytes, this wonderful tome has improved my emotional intelligence. I now buy hardback copies of this book, add a message in ink pen (which itself uses muscles that I forgot that I had!) and gift them liberally to colleagues that I have regular contact with. If they ‘get’ a similar feeling or understanding as me of how the world turns as a result of reading this book (or if they just read it at all in some cases!) I make an effort to turn them into ‘friends’.

So, contrary to what some other reviewers write, "How To Get Filthy Rich In Rising Asia" is indeed a ‘self-help book’ after all!
