5.0 out of 5 stars A five star book (worth waiting for!), 1 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Received 3 days after the release date. Sent via Royal Mail in C4 cardboard envelope. Book is up to the usual standard with regard to text and pictures. For an F1 tech fan it is THE best book out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't fault it. Yet!, 10 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Easy to set up and seems to work as it should. I used the easy install (press button on router and press button on TP-Link). Mine is located just outside the garage door (router being in the garage) so only about 3m away and was showing a receiving signal of 4 out of 5 lights. Great quality with a nice feel to it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good all rounder, 10 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I finally received my LG after City Link messed up the delivery. It was very easy to set up and all seems to work ok. The picture and sound are excellent. The smart section is quick and is able to access and play my movies and video on my NAS. A couple of points are it is quite front heavy when on the stand so could easily be pulled by a child (LG do supply securing straps for this reason). Secondly at the time of purchase LG had an offer for a subscription to NOW TV. This was very easy to claim and set up, however, the NOW TV app (only on LG) is in BETA stage so is prone to a few hiccups and can crash. Hopefully an update to a full version is just around the corner. All in all, very pleased.

4.0 out of 5 stars Son loves it, 16 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Son has watched it about 6 times so far so that usually means its good! Story and animation are good so 4 stars. Shame about the UV copy. UV will never match iTunes because its so arduous to get it on a device. Once there, no problems.


CitroŽn XM
CitroŽn XM
by Alberto Martinez
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Great from start to finish, 9 Feb 2013
This review is from: CitroŽn XM (Hardcover)
Good quality book. From the back cover:
It took CitroŽn four and a half years to design, develop and launch the CitroŽn XM. It is difficult to appreciate the phenomenal effort required during this short time period to co-ordinate the talent and expertise of people working on the project and focus these resources on the challenging design objectives set. CitroŽn succeeded, and the CitroŽn XM is proof of this achievement.

Alberto Martinez and Maurice Sauzay have followed the development of the CitroŽn XM from conception through to public launch. In this book they chronicle the stages involved in this fascinating process.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I thought, 9 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Without a doubt the title is slightly misleading. When writing about the presenting and journalism side of F1 the book is very interesting but when Jake starts explaining the technical side of F1 I lost interest. It's a bit like David Coulthard writing a book about TV presenting! I did finish and enjoy it and it was well written so 3 stars.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nothing new here!, 30 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Top Gear Years (Hardcover)
Like the first reviewer I was expecting a book about his time at Top Gear but sadly a few pages in you get this note "The contents of this book first appeared in Jeremy Clarkson's Top Gear magazine column between 1993 and 2011." Very disappointing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great until it broke, 7 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Used it every few days for 2 months and was very happy with it until it stopped working (problem with the on/off switch). The only complaint I have with it is when it starts to boil dry the steam drops back down onto the hot plate and leaves a burn marks.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been so much better, 7 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This new book promised so much but failed to live up to expectations. First of all my son loves the book, which is who it was for. What I didn't like was that although called a character encyclopedia it doesn't list every car ever made. It fails to mention this in the description but does mention it inside the book.

The book is about 2 inches thick, with 1 inch devoted to a box to hold the free Lightning McQueen car on the front. I think I would of preferred them to have ditched the free car and made a more complete encyclopedia. I found over 20 vehicles my son has that were not listed in the book (some were mentioned but had no pictures or info).

The quality of the pages and pictures are of the usual high standard from DK.

For a child they will love it. If you are an adult collector, forget it!
