A very useful addition to the material an Italian languge learner needs to possess.It's conventional in that the vocabulary is grouped by subject matter, eg animals. However, having an image to look at while tring to anchor the word in your brain is a good reinforcing tool.

I now have a areasonable collection of grammar and teach-yourself Italian books but this must rank as one of the best. For someone who already has a decent grounding in Italian this book is a rich source to enable further progress.The conversations, which are also on a CD, are not the usual grammar book conversations but are in the sort of Italian you would expect to hear spoken every day. The supplementary material growing out of the conversations is some of the best I have come across and is structured in such a way that it promotes speedy learning and confidence in the learner. I have also learned things from this book which I should have been taught in the language classes I have attended but which somehow never came up.
A must buy for the intermediate level Italian learner who wishes to progress.

I haven't used it sufficiently yet to give a definitive verdict but after a few weeks use I can't find any negatives. It does what it is supposed to do. Shredding is quick. I haven't tempted fate by trying to put too many sheets in at the same time and I have followed the manufacturer's instruction not to shred for too long at one time. Some other users have mentioned that the mesh collection basket leaves dust. I haven't found this and it's useful to see how full the basket is without having to take tjh lid off. It seems to be very good value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Depth and insight, 7 Sept. 2013

This review is from: History of the Mafia (Hardcover)
An account which is not the most recent but which is still the best. An engrossing academic analysis which is not for anyone expecting a technicolour Hollywood account but which is nevertheless gripping. The origins of the Mafia and its entanglements in politics and businesses are especially well - handled. For anyone seriously interested in this subject it's a book not to be missed.

A first class run through a pictorial history of the Mafia. I was surprised by the quality of the text, which though brief gives a very pithy and intelligent summary of this organization. I would have liked to have seen a lengthier text but the photographs are what the book is about and they are well - chosen with many fresh ones I had not seen before.

I didn't think that this would be my sort of film, but it was very watchable and well -directed. The 3D effects really contributed to its effectiveness.
