3.0 out of 5 stars Not fantastic, 20 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At such a price this brush should be perfect, well designed and convenient to use. Instead, it has a plug that doesn't fit the shaver socket, it comes with European plug so that a UK customer has to use an adapter and it has an ugly, bulky, stupid remote control that has to be sicked to a wall!
If one has to justify the price, this is not the way forward. Poor. I gave it 3 because it seems to be doing the job well.

This is an excellent book, I can' hardly recommend it strong enough. I have read many books on the topic searching for answers and this one is the best I could find. Well written and really helpful.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor, 12 Dec 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am a fan of good historical work. But this one failed to meet my expectations.
The author can't engage a reader, the book is boring to the extent. Alison Weir employs this strange style of writing when she goes back and forth in time describing events. She doesn't make it easy for a reader to remember how old was Henry at a particular time. She uses dates instead. She piles facts without interpreting them. A good history is interpretation.
Language is bad. Too much info wasted on nothing.
Will not recommend to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended!, 7 Oct 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this book without any prior knowledge, just chose it on Amazon for some reason.
It turned out to be a very engaging and informative read. Marc Morris is an excellent writer, the topic of castle history can be very boring, but he manages to make it exciting, fascinating and entertaining! He suggests several criteria to look for while evaluating castles and suggests the structure into which to classify your knowledge about castles. He chooses one particular example of a "typical" castle for each epoch and covers its history in great detail while providing info about other castle of the period.
I am in love with this book and I can't recommend it enough to anyone who wants to learn about British castles.
