3.0 out of 5 stars IT WON'T LAST VERY LONG, 5 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Its end-user will probably demolish this outfit very quickly, without trying, because it is not a quality garment. Now that you know, I suggest that you pay more for more, unless your "little mermaid" will get over her fascination with such outfits very quickl In which case buy one, but don't hope for longevity of use with this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars I WANTED MORE, 5 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For what I was looking for I got one page that contains a mystery because it is not academically sourced. Because it opens a can of worms I have to find another work that will tell me more about the life of C.O. Stanley in the Nineteen Sixties, because this is not it.

This is an oft-quoted source about the origins of the JFK-Camelot myth. For this reason and no other, I bought this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars IT IS WHAT IT SAYS THAT IT IS, 5 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a handy little guide to the various eras of British radio. It is a digest and it is not well documented, but it does hit the highlights in a useful and handy way by providing pointers to sources of further information.

3.0 out of 5 stars IT IS WHAT IT IS, 5 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Pye book of audio (Hardcover)
I am trying to acquire information about Pye during the days of its involvement with the development and promotion of commercial radio in the UK, and it does contribute to this knowledge base.


Defeat of John Hawkins: A Biography of His Third Slaving Voyage
Defeat of John Hawkins: A Biography of His Third Slaving Voyage
by Rayner Unwin
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars SHOULD THERE BE SEVEN FLAGS OVER TEXAS?, 29 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was investigating Houston discoveries of a Carolana settlement when I bought this book. Should there be 7 and not just 6 flags that have flown over Texas, and should one of them be the flag of England prior to its union with Scotland? This book provides possible answers as to how some settlers could have arrived there. But that is not the topic of this book. Therefore it is a helpful guide, and that is all that it is.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book was recommended to me because of it style of presentation, and so I bought two versions of the same book. That was a waste of money since I didn't like the style or the book.
