4.0 out of 5 stars Good guide, 19 Nov. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Used this book along side the Footprint Laos guide. Both are better for different areas, both were a bit lacking when you get away from the main areas and some areas were already out of date once you were away from the main centres.

Overall still good. LP books are not as good as they used to be in my opinion but worth carrying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good guide, 19 Nov. 2007

Recently used this book along with the Lonely Planet book on a trip to Laos. Both are good and it's nice to have the two. LP is maybe a bit better in terms of places to stay and eat, the footprint is better for most other areas. Def for history and background.

4.0 out of 5 stars Looks cool and comfortable, 15 Oct. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gola Mens Chase (Apparel)
Bought these as they looked similar to other casual trainers I've had. Seems a bit odd buying shoes that you've not really seen or tried on but they fit great, are comfortable and look good - great bargain for the price. Will probably buy another pair.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hed Kandi chillout alternative..., 20 Aug. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Angels Fall (Audio CD)
I've been a big fan of the Hed Kandi Serve Chilled and Winter Chilled series. With Mark Doyle moving on to the Fierce Angel label this is a natural successor. It is similar, and it's nice to have 3 discs rather than 2, but I'd say this one is only on par as an average Hed Kandi chillout offering. So worth it, some great tracks on there, but plenty I want to skip. If you're a big fan of HK's Serve Chilled and Winter Chilled, get it. If you don't have all of these already, I'd go back and get the Hed Kandi CDs first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic live Harper, 11 Jun. 2007
As noted, the CD isn't the same as the original vinyl release. It's still a great album and worth tracking down. If you are having trouble sourcing it you can try directly through the artists web site.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another worthwhile incremental improvement, 24 Jan. 2006
This review is from: Apple iLife 06 (Mac) (DVD-ROM)
iLife 06 worth it if you have iLife 05? It all depends on how much you use the apps. There is nothing revolutionary in the changes, but everything is improved. I used iPhoto for all my photo management and so that alone is worth it for me. It's just all a bit more polished.
One thing that is different is iWeb. If you've already got your own web page, know how to write HTML, etc. this may not be for you. But for the average joe who just wants to put *something* on the web and isn't interested in knowing the details, it's a great tool - as long as the templates are ok for you. The integration between the other iLife apps and iWeb is great - select photos, publish them, record something in GarageBand - publish it as a podcast, even video... For someone who wants to keep in touch with distant family, share photos and video of the kids, then this is just wonderful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent thorough coverage of dealing with Spam, 3 Oct. 2005
This is a highly recommended book on dealing with Spam, either from the point of view of your own home system or a whole corporate email system, using Spamassassin. It is very well written, clear and accurate. Far better than the O'Reilly book on the same subject. If you want to reduce spam, get this book and follow the excellent advice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good guide book, 5 Sept. 2000
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'd agree with the abvoe review and this is another good Lonely Planet guide. It's layed out pretty much the same as other LP books, but it's style is a little different (then again it is a trekking guide as opposed to a general guide). The only bad thing I could say is that there's quite a lot of info on Nepal/Kathmandu/Pokhara in general, which you will know about if you have the LP Nepal book. It would be nice to have more details on the routes and walking distances/times for each day. Usually you only get a couple of paragraphs for each day (sometimes maybe upto a page). The lastest edition does cover all of Nepal and the newer routes opened up...

5.0 out of 5 stars Usual top of the line guide from LP, 5 Sept. 2000
This review is from: Lonely Planet: Nepal (Paperback)
If you're used to Lonely Planet guide, this is another of their top of the line guides. Same style and layout as all the others. I've used both this and older editions and they've all been as acurate as you'd expect from a guide book. It's well worth getting a newer edition if you have an old one, they've updated quite a lot and added a lot more info.
