5.0 out of 5 stars Collected Economic Insight Applied to Wicked Problems, 28 July 2014
Michael Mainelli and Ian Harris do an excellent job of collecting a wide variety of economic insight, both historical and modern, and weaving it into a framework that can be applied to today's tough problems. Useful reading for anyone who wants to understand the nature of 'wicked problems' and begin to explore solutions to them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Original Twist on the Love Triangle, 8 May 2014
This review is from: Sextet (Paperback)
This rather original twist on a traditional love triangle is a second novel by cookery writer Judy Jackson, and she has done well. The triangle eventually becomes a sextet, but that's not as complicated as it sounds, particularly with well-defined characters and clear but expressive writing. The story is a rather improbable one (I will leave out the details to avoid spoilers), but that doesn't turn out to be a problem as Jackson draws us into the scenario that she creates. If you like well-written, readable novels of relationships, this should be an enjoyable read.

Max Value 2 Way Switched Scart Splitter Box and 0.5m Cable

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a SCART Splitter, 24 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I ordered this item twice. The first one was defective, I returned it, and so was the second. I say "defective" because this item is clearly not a SCART splitter. I bought it to replace an existing unswitched splitter, and it simply did not function in the identical configuration to the existing splitter -- although did let through a bit of distorted signal in certain configurations. So maybe it does something else other than split a SCART signal, but if you want it for the advertised purpose I would not advise buying it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Way To Think, 5 Mar. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As Tim Brown recognises in this book, design thinking is not new. But he has done all of us a great service by coining (with his IDEO colleagues) the term "design thinking" and setting out very clearly in this book what it means. He points out that almost any problem can benefit from design thinking, which essentially involves (1) taking a flexible approach to problem solving, (2) combining convergent and divergent thinking and (3) prototyping solutions.

My only slight criticism of this book is that he covers the essentials of design thinking in about half of it. The rest involves examples that are interesting (and an excellent advertisement for the skills of IDEO) but carry much less insight. But it is not clear to me what could have been done to improve on this -- perhaps a little design thinking would provide the answer!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Basic Business Software, 23 May 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
QuickBooks SimpleStart 2008 provides everything needed to keep the books of a simple business (including VAT accounting), at a very competitive price. The menus and help files are not as clear as they might be, but I received excellent online support that helped me learn to navigate them through the 30-day free support package offered with the product.
