1.0 out of 5 stars Disaster purchase, 1 Sept. 2010
This is the worst purchase I have ever made from Amazon. The Norton discs would not load correctly in that they updated my expiring Norton 2009 Internet Security rather than loading the new version. When I contacted Norton Support they kept refering to my purchase being 4 months ago as opposed to a week previous. I had to enable Norton to take control of each of my computer to activate and validate the software for each of the three computers separately. Furthermore, each time Norton did activate and validate such software my limited broadband account was exceeded by a further 5Gigagbytes, at a cost of £5 a time!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Shaun the Sheep for all ages, 11 Oct. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliantly funny and very entertaining. We bought the DVDs for our 2.5 years old grandson and now find that as grandparents we are addicted to Shaun the Sheep. Each time we watch the DVDs we find different nuances that we missed the first time of viewing. As well as Shaun, we believe that the dog Bitzer is also a star.

5.0 out of 5 stars Understanding and Drafting Business Contracts, 6 Aug. 2002
As intended, this book is an excellent first reader for small/medium size business wishing to understand and prepare their own business contracts. It is also a very good introduction for project managers, and those aspiring to be contract managers, in larger companies, who desire a better understanding of the legal obligations of contracts for which they may be responsible.
The book is full of good information and assistance in terms of drafting and negotiating contracts, both from the standpoint of the buyer and supplier of products and service. The chapter contents follow the typical structure of a business contract and are written in an easily understood, common sense way devoid of complex legal terms and language.
As a semi-retired businessman, who spends a lot of time drafting contracts for a small engineering business, I found the book a useful "aide-de-memoire" for basic contract law whilst learning several new facts. The chapters on "What to do if things go wrong" and "Using a lawyer", together with the information contained in the Appendices, were particularly informative.
Perhaps, by way of a recommendation for improvement reference to the meaning of contractual delivery terms such as ex-works, FOB, CIF etc and financial instruments such as letter of credit would have been useful for SME engaged in export business.
In summary,this book is a valuable and easily read resource that would make an excellent addition to the bookshelf of the business owner/manager of small business to be referred to time and again in course of doing business.
