5.0 out of 5 stars Disturbing, 3 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this book because of the unique perspective. There are many books written about Jehovah's Witnesses by those who attack their version of Christianity and then attempt to dismantle their dogma and supplant it with their own. I have no interest in any such version of Christianity. My particular interest was to understand what motivated JWs to live the way that they do. Many of us will have known JWs at school, at work, had them knock on your door etc. Yet what do we really know other than they don't do birthdays or Christmas and would rather die than have a blood transfusion, their children included! I have known some people who were JWs and they reached a point in their lives where they had doubts about their position within this religion. They were afraid to openly ask questions. I was disturbed to read a newspaper article in the Independent newspaper in 2011 I think, where the JWs main journal, The Watchtower, described those who left the religion because of such doubts as 'mentally diseased'!!! The book describes the very high level of control exerted on the membership where any questioning is greeted with suspicion. Indeed, any who leave the religion or who are excommunicated face the prospect of being shunned by friends and family as per the JWs policy. I read a newspaper article last year about a man who was in this exact position and faced the prospect of having to be shunned by his mother. The official spokesman for the JWs was quoted in the report as saying that such action was purely a personal decision and not endorsed or expected by the JWs as a whole. The book clearly shows that this is NOT the reality. The private face shown by the JW authorities to its own members is very different to its public face. Further investigation revealed that it is also a registered charity!!

So who is this book for? If you know anyone who has been contacted by the JWs in an attempt to convert them then this is for them. Also, if you have friends or family who are JWs then they will learn a great deal about the religion they belong to, especially that it is based on Bronze Age values which include intolerance of women's rights, gay rights etc. and will exert great pressure on its rank and file to maintain its membership numbers. The biggest challenge will be getting them to overcome their conditioning and start reading this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tremendous!, 6 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a tremendous piece of kit. It finally transports the ipod to the heart of an audiophile system. I have ripped about 700 CDs into iTunes using the Apple Lossless codec. My computer is in a different room from the hifi and I was streaming the music using the Logitech Squeezebox Duet, which works very well - Spotify etc. But sometimes I want to put some music on without having to turn the computer on. I have a full 160Gb ipod classic and I have used other ipod docks but it doesn't matter how expensive or cheap they are, they all feed the hifi from the analogue slot on the ipod which means you are using Apple's internal DAC, which is not great for serious listening. Hence the Pure i20. You have the option of using its own on board 24/192 dac or taking the digital signal (coaxial or optical) to an external dac. I have a Yamaha AV amp and tried the Pure dac and also direct to the amp via optical digital cable. I honestly couldn't tell the difference. Both sounded excellent and indistinguishable from the CD. I opted for the optical solution simply because it looked neater with 2 cables instead of 3. My only disappointment was that I had hoped that the ipod display would be mirrored on the TV via the video cable connection. Then when you use the remote control you could see what you're doing. Logically if you're at the other end of the room using the remote you can't read the ipod display. It doesn't do that unfortunately. So as long as you listen to extended pieces and are happy just to skip tracks, pause and restart it works fine.

In summary, highly recommended!
