Ice Breakers! How To Get Any Prospect To Beg You For A Presentation
Ice Breakers! How To Get Any Prospect To Beg You For A Presentation
Price: 2.42

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, 31 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It does what it says on the cover. It provides a host of useful tips to attract prospects for the development of your network marketing business


Montgomery Clift: A Biography
Montgomery Clift: A Biography
Price: 6.17

4.0 out of 5 stars Good biography, 31 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have to confess that I've never seen any films of Montgomery Clift so I cannot comment whether his skills were as sharp as so many have indicated. The man clearly had a troubled life, before and after his accident - although this was a life changer for him. It's very easy to have sympathy for the downgrade but in many respects he was the author of his own fall. Dreadful promiscuity, along with poor choices in friendships, prescription drugs and alcohol all led to disaster.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Series, 23 Dec 2013
As a late comer to Boston Legal, I have just started to watch its predecessor - The Practice. This is much different but equally enjoyable. Casting is superb and the storylines are much more realistic and down to earth. Strongly recommended. Bring out series 3 to 8 - please!

A great series. Still maintains an extremely high standard. Scripts, characters and production values are brilliant. Long may it continue


Beechfield Unisex Fedora Hat (L/XL) (Black)
Beechfield Unisex Fedora Hat (L/XL) (Black)
Offered by COOZO
Price: 10.19

3.0 out of 5 stars Acceptable but not outstanding, 9 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived before the promised date, so speed of response was excellent.

In my view the quality of the hat looks slightly better in the photograph than in reality.

If you want a Fedora for casual wear or to complement, say, a fancy dress costume, this is probably fine. But the material seems to be man made and it doesn't quite have a stamp of quality.

Good fit.


Minister's Bible-HCS
Minister's Bible-HCS
by Holman Bible Editorial Staff
Edition: Leather Bound
Price: 55.71

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent quality and translation, 9 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Holman translation is an excellent modern work, faithful and very readable. Better than the NIV, NKJV, ESV and others in my view.

The quality of this edition is superb. It is well bound and would probably last a lifetime - and there is a guarantee to this effect by the manufacturers.

The margin is generous and allows the owner to place many personal notes around the text.

The reference to "Ministers" edition shouldn't put anyone off buying this book. True, there are sections at the rear that only a recognised Minister would probably use - sermon outlines on funerals and weddings, etc. But many of the other "helps" could be used by any Christian involved in the Lord's work.

The slight weakness of the edition is that there could have been many more "helps" than there actually are. Some are also rather poor, particularly when the plan of salvation is outlined - it doesn't cover repentance and other important points.

Overall though, a very good item and (almost) totally recommended.


The Sisterhood of Dune (Dune Schools of Dune Trilogy 1)
The Sisterhood of Dune (Dune Schools of Dune Trilogy 1)
by Kevin J. Anderson
Edition: Paperback
Price: 6.29

3.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant enough read but nothing special, 30 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This title is one of the slightly better ones in the BH/KJA range of Dune books. The best part is where the Sisterhood are dealt with; the other factions are bland. As one other author has remarked, the modern efforts do not have the characterisation and originality of the original works.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent series, 29 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Justified series 4 is another first class production. Storylines are superb, as is the characterisation. Timothy Olyphant shines in the main role, as always. Bring on more!

This is an exceptionally good book that deals with the invitation system. Other Amazon reviews cover in detail the benefits and wisdom of encouraging a response to the gospel message. A must buy!
