2.0 out of 5 stars Absolute waste of money, 23 Oct 2013
Got this grinder as the Christmas gift last year started to use with just two tbsp of coffee beans strange burning smell came out once I operated .switched it off immediately still could sense strong smell of plastic burning smell even after being switched off and mains removed .realising the returning the product with amazon has expired two days back contacted customer care few mails got exchanged to know what's the product code and description finally they gave me an 0800 number to call for the product pick up.and after a long wait finally the call gets connected and they agree to pick up the next week took a leave n waited whole day nobody turned up and waited foolishly for a week thinking I might get any apologetic mail nothing of that sort happened .called them again the following week the person on the other side of the call says he forgot and what a professional way of dealing with customers I must say and rebooked for a pick up next following week again I took half a day leave to handover the product still none turned up. It's absolute waste of money and time .

Bernadette Jiwa is a Female "Seth Godin" who inspires a lot of people through her blog at [...]

This book is truly inspirational and by end of it I'm sure you will be motivated.

Couple of points why this book matters from my perspective,

--Byte Size Powerful lessons
--Easy to read
--You need not start the book from cover page, you an open any chapter and read it from there.
--Truly inspirational Content
--When I was reading individual chapters,I felt that it should not end and should go on
--I feel each Chapter requires a separate book on its own

Some thoughts from the book:

1.Every Product or Service was born from a problem that needed to be solved or a desire that was waiting to be fulfilled E.g Online Check-in,Fruit Smoothies in a bottle,Apple store Genius Bar.

2.While Tactics are necessary to spread your idea,but in the long run its more important that you have an idea that matters.

3.The secret to the success of Facebook,Pampers,Instagram,Basecamp and on and on comes to one thing:the ability to stand in the customers shoes and see the world from that persons point of view.

and Many Many more....

I would recommend this book to all of you as it motivates you definitely in taking some action or would make you to think differently in certain situations.

Hopefully it might also make you the next Zuckerberg or Instagram or Steve Jobs.

Thanks again Bernadette for Inspiring me :-)

This is my first book from Phil Simons ,Age of platform is a awesome book suiting to the current market place and there are lots of insights and research about the ecosystems or platform which companies like Google,Amazon,facebook and Apple have created for partners.Platform seems to the only way going forward for all the companies in some respect.Would like to read other books of this author now.
