1.0 out of 5 stars Not a book to buy for useful information, 22 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Awful, amateur book. Spelling and grammar are appalling, reading like a dictation from a non-English speaker. Even the cover's photo appears to have been taken on a camera-phone, with heavy pixelation apparent.

The content is laughable, and neither specific to the miniature schnauzer, nor helpful if you are looking for general tips on dog ownership in general. Having read The Perfect Puppy, I'd advise anyone in interested in this book to just buy that and read an online article or two about the specifics of the Mini. Looking for more training tips than the 'basiscs'? Get a general training book.

When I buy a book about the miniature schnauzer and read a 'chapter' (ha!) on grooming, I'd like more than to be told that it needs grooming. Really? A long haired dog that doesn't shed needs grooming?? Wow, thanks! How about a tip or two on the specifics o the breed's style and look? How about a tip on how best to groom him? How about ANYTHING useful? No chance, it seems...

Schnauzer owners/prospective owners - do yourself a favour. Just google the breed, you'll learn more from Wikipedia than you will from this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Crazy Kaufman, 1 May 2012
This review is from: Adaptation [DVD] (DVD)
Off it's tits. In a good way.
Nice to see Nic Cage proving that he is actually capable of acting once in a while (and in multiple roles), and Meryl doesn't attempt to steal the show for once. Excellent ensemble cast, typical bonkersness given the Kaufman/Jonze pairing. It's not Malkovich, but few films are.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good, 1 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is my second pair of these buds. The sound quality is pretty good, and the fit is nice and snug with the option of the three sized rubbers. I had another pair for about a year, and despite very carefully coiling them up after use every time, and using the cable tidy provided, they went one-legged. I considered some other more expensive models, but given the price, these felt like a good deal. I could go all out and spend £80+ on something that sounds amazing, but given the build quality on cabling these days, what's the point?!

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit thin, but good info, 14 Oct 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It arrived and was the size and length of a child's book which is sadly a bit too heavy on images of mini schnauzers rather than information. The information within is pretty good, but does tend to skirt over subjects a little bit. In conjunction with a good all round puppy training book, it's a reasonable purchase.
