1.0 out of 5 stars avoid, 18 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I would NOT recommend this book to anyone, beginner or expert. The errors are glaring, it's written badly, the format is confusing. Shame on Leader and publishers Norton. Worst of all the publisher doesn't provide an email address on its website to enable us to inform them.

It might be an old recording but they're wonderful performances by outstanding artists. The sound isn't 21st century but who cares when the performances are so brilliant

Speck CandyShell Case for iPhone 5/5S - Slate

1.0 out of 5 stars affords no protection at all, 6 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was my second speck candyshell case. I thought perhaps the first one was faulty, and decided to try again. Mistake! The plastic around the mute switch broke within days as did the plastic around the charging port. The rubberised coating started peeling off immediately. I have two other Speck cases and it seems quality has deteriorated on all its products.

iPhone 4 4G 4GS HD Luxury Black Genuine Leather Case Cover & Screen Protector (New Headphone Easy Access) For Apple iPhone 4G 4GS

1.0 out of 5 stars Nice but useless, 7 Oct. 2011
Seemed a good design until I realised the leather case interferes with the sensor built into the phone to the right of where the phone rests agaist your ear. The result is that the phone switches off the display unexpectedly. You can overcome this by pushing the phone slightly out of the case so the sensitive area is free of the case, but I have abandoned this case as useless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Risen above the rest, 21 Dec. 2004
This review is from: The Handmade Loaf (Hardcover)
Put all our other bread books aside. If you want to make and eat fantastic bread The Handmade Loaf from Dan Lepard is an eye opener. Sanity, at last, in the bakery. Almost immediately Lepard asks you to abandon all other and stick to metric weights and measures. No cups, no ounces, no nonsense. Lepard has really thought about the bread making process and it works. He takes you through each recipe step by step. And, if that's not enough, there are brilliant photographs from the baker himself to show you how the dough and finished product should look. All you need is time and the desire to make what most of us have rarely eaten at home, really delicious bread.
If you've got an aspiring breadmaker on your gift list, buy this book, an inexpensive set of digital scales and a few bags of flour and sit back and await the results.
Don't believe me, find out for yourselves.
