5.0 out of 5 stars good new offering, 4 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Not Your Kind Of People (Audio CD)
still on form, then. Bought this as a batch with two older albums, love them all. title track is good, and automatic, the first track, hits the ground running. a bit derivative here and there, but good old fashioned guitar friendly rock.

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant riucksack, 4 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
been looking for a decent work ruck sack for ages, and settled on this one. I carry a lenovo 10" netbook to work every day, plus the usual crap - lunch, work papers, phones, kindle, general life support stuff.

This has so many pockets for stuff, including teeny ones for usb sticks. Its so comfortable, i dont know i'm wearing it. And a fantastic price as well, well recommend it.


CaseCrown Bold Trifold Case (Blue) for Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0
CaseCrown Bold Trifold Case (Blue) for Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0
Offered by Senyx
Price: £12.36

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent case, 7 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent case for my Galaxy Tab 2 7" which I bought at Christmas. Fully protects the screen, magnet cover close is very positive, case has cut outs for all holes. Not too heavy, and the trifold cover, whilst not as nifty as the ones for the ipad, does the job pretty well. Cant complain for a product costing less than £15.

Wish I had bought it at the same time as the Tab, as I have managed to scratch the screen before I got the cover. Never mind!

5.0 out of 5 stars chilled out vibe, 11 July 2012
This review is from: Left Bank Two (MP3 Download)
what a chilled out sound! I bought this after watching my son play Little Big Planet, where this music features. I remembered it as the 'Vision On' theme for the gallery, in my (distant) youth. A quick youtube search found it, and a quick download later, bliss!

Back to the music, just a chilled out vibe, what more can you say, great vibraphone? sound, and relaxed jazz drumming with brushes.


The Trainer's Handbook (Pfeiffer Essential Resources for Training and HR Professionals)
The Trainer's Handbook (Pfeiffer Essential Resources for Training and HR Professionals)
by Karen Lawson
Edition: Paperback
Price: £40.50

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent resource book, 20 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I haven't used The Trainers Handbook yet, but I have had a good look through it, and I'm impressed with the breadth of coverage. I teach food safety related courses for adult learners from the food industry.

The book updates my knowledge on training needs, types of participants, how to structure sessions, and how to get and interpret feedback. I like the guidelines for selecting effective audiovisual aids. I also like the practical tips and strategies from a very experienced tutor.

The last time I did a train the trainer course was before the Internet was really getting going (remember then, only about 17 years ago!) and so website resources etc were not there; this is a very useful part of any trainers library. In this respect, I like the website tool that includes examples, assignment templates and Internet resources.

The worksheets, checklists, and assessments templates are really useful to anyone starting out, or wanting to refresh their training resources.

5.0 out of 5 stars lovely film, 1 July 2010

This review is from: My Neighbour Totoro [DVD] (DVD)
I love the cat bus! What a great concept.. a furry version of the night bus in Harry Potter! What a great film. I am gradually discovering Miyazaki with my eight year old..so far, Howl, Spirited Away, and Totoro. Love all of them, all have different charm. Only downside..that awfull jolly intro song!

3.0 out of 5 stars great film, 1 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just a quick review... both me and my 8 year old loved this film. I got introduced to Miyazaki from one of my other, older sons, who is very into anime. All I can say is, great film , very entertaining, kept my 8 year old, who is very much a 3D computer generated type film person.. he loved Up, Meatballs, Monsters vs Aliens, for example, very entertained.

I love the incredible accuracy of the animation, everything is moving, very life like. Great story, brilliant animation

5.0 out of 5 stars great compilation, amazing value, 22 May 2010
This review is from: The Platinum Collection (Audio CD)
I bought this album the other day (not from amazon, I hasten to add, but almost as cheap). I'd listened to Alicia Keys on the radio ever since she first released 'songs in the key of life' but never bought any of her albums, until now. Her latest release has prompted me; I have often bought albums on the strength of a great single, and beeen disappointed, so I thought that, rather than shelling out on the new one, I'd get a good flavour across all of her old work when I saw this for sale, and see if I liked it.

I can honestly say its a brilliant compilation, (actually just her first three albums, so its more than a traditional compilation). I'm not going to do a blow by blow analysis, more an an overall comment.

I liked all three albums from the off, with nothing really standing out as weak or poor. Great piano, arrangements, voice, lyrics.

From 'Songs' particularly liked Fallin, (naturally), How Come You Dont Call Me, Rock Wit U, A Womans Worth, great arrangement, lyrics and vocals, although they are all great.

From Diary, Harlems Nocturne, If I Was Your Woman, You Dont Know My Name, Diary, and If I Aint Got You.

And from As I Am, hard to pick any out, as they are all very good.

Great value for money, in this package, buy it, if you dont have any of her albums!
