Diana Ross: An Unauthorized Biography
Diana Ross: An Unauthorized Biography
Price: 4.19

4.0 out of 5 stars a well written and balanced view, 3 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The author clearly knows his subject and has been a journalist in this world for many years. It has a very readable style and contains lots of details which are not over-sensationalised. It contains quotes, interviews and clearly states if something is speculation. It goes into depth without loosing the reader's interest which he accomplishes with ease.
The book also captures the dichotomy between the star and the person. Much more informative, I felt, than Miss Ross's own autobiograhy. The only negative for me was the author insists on refering to himself in the third person and keeps saying "it is interesting that ....." where as he presumably wouldn't out it in if it would bore the backside off us, but those are minor flaws in the overall picture. I was glad i bought this.

1.0 out of 5 stars Total D.ROSS, 3 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A total of 8 pages of sometimes factually incorrect eg ("the supremes had a hit with Stop! in 1969) badly spelled information. The "book" lacks even the basic facts being written with correct syntax and grammar. You could find any thing here better written and expounded for free with two clicks. There are 6 video links which are not even linked to the text you wil lfind them freely available on you-tube. Do not buy this rubbish

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for the price, 24 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The watch actually looks nicer in reality than in the photograph, as it looks less orangey in real life. It is waterproof and appears quite robust.As can be seen there is no date. The strap is extremely comfortable and again appears and feels well constructed.Given the saving, I would buy again at this price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good value, 24 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Most people who commented thought we had spent more on this than we had. It looks fairly realistic and is well lit (the 400 light version). The time saved not rigging the lights is a godsend.Because it is so nicely lit and looks good i n general, it does not need too much decoration. It is easy to get back into its box for storage and doesn't take too much room in the loft. All in all I was very pleased though it is a shame it doesn't come with the decorations too, Bah humbug! A good value, nice looking tree.

3.0 out of 5 stars Narrow fitting, 24 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought them for walking so i was not too bothered by the unappealing colour of beige and green. The shoes were sturdy. I normally rate New Balance shoes very highly but this fitting is very narrow and the shoes feel tight. I was disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly as described, 24 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to replace a one year old Breville which got way too hot and boiled everything like crazy. I can't believe how much better this Morphy Richards is. The three heat settings- low medium and high, make it very controllable, and the low setting really is low so you can leave it on all day when you are at work. Because the pan is metal, it is very light and very easy to clean-plus if you want it goes in the dishwasher. Yes, the pan does move easily on the stove top when you want to brown things- a major plus is that the one pan does both the browning and slow cooking but all you need to do is hold it with an oven glove, so unlike a few other reviews I don't really see this as a problem it just makes it easier to get out and put away. I would definitely recommend this product if you want a slow cooker for up to 4 people.

2.0 out of 5 stars boils away- nothing slow about this!, 25 Aug 2013
I agree with other commentators who complain it gets way too hot for a slow cooker. It is useless if you want to leave it while you are out at work. Mine comes to the boil within two and a half hours on low and then spatters all over the work top as it boils so fiercely. This rapid cooking also means cheaper meat becomes quite tough, defeating one of the supposed benefits of a slow cooker! If you are in when it is on, the rattling lid caused by the boiling contents is very annoying.Finally, you can burn yourself easily on the casing. I would not recommend at all, as a pan on a low hob would do the same job for no extra cost or storage space.

5.0 out of 5 stars Looks good , performs well, 2 Jan 2011

This mouse is well made and solidly constructed. It looks good (photo does it a diservice) and is very easy to set up. I lost my nano receiver when my laptop was stolen and Trust customer service have been excellent in helping me replace it.

2.0 out of 5 stars noisy and gets noisier with time, 2 Jan 2011
I have had this pump that came with my biUbe for two years. My aquarium is inthe living room and the noise has always been bad but now it is getting to the point that I can hear it over the TV, it stands on felt but the whole pump now rattles. The airflow has also decreased. In terms of volume, if you do not own one, think of a very noisy fridge. On the plus side, it is cheap and would be OK perhaps in a room where you might not notice the racket!
