The Defining Decade: Why Your Twenties Matter and How to Make the Most of Them Now
The Defining Decade: Why Your Twenties Matter and How to Make the Most of Them Now
Price: £6.35

5.0 out of 5 stars Will trigger some thoughtful moments, 16 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having been one of those "oh it's fine, I'll just wing it" and "life happens later" types of people but fortunate enough to have made some of the right choices, this book has given me a lot of food for thought and I truly recommend it to any twentysomething or parent/family member/friend/boss of a twentysomething who seems a little aimless, directionless or unsure.

Ours is a generation that struggles with an unusual amount of sadness/depression/self comparison, this book explores why in a format that is case study based though written as if a friend were telling you over coffee.

2.0 out of 5 stars Overpriced and not reader-friendly, 11 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is a required text for CIM Integrated Communications, but it is overpriced and not reader-friendly.

If you have to buy it, buy it second-hand or get it from the library because it is not the kind of book you can keep for later in your career to refer back to.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is poignant, memorable and a must-read for anyone, regardless of whether you are interested in Chinese history., 11 April 2016
The history of China is not an easy one to understand or to imagine. In this book, Jung Chang takes us through three generations of women in China and brings the Mao regime to life. This book is poignant, memorable and a must-read for anyone, regardless of whether you are interested in Chinese history. This is a book about humanity as much as it is about three women learning to survive in a changing world.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not since Anna Karenina has a film come out of the DVD player and made its way directly to the charity shop pile!, 28 Dec. 2015
This review is from: The Gift [DVD][2015] (DVD)
I bought this film expecting suspense and the "jumpy moments" usually associated with thrillers, but I can honestly say that I spent most of the film bored and getting progressively more annoyed with the characters.

Not since Anna Karenina has a film come out of the DVD player and made its way directly to the charity shop pile!

This review is from: Big Hero 6 [DVD] (DVD)
I wasn't that fussed when I saw this advertised, but a chance viewing of it at a friend's house meant that I had to add it to my collection - an incredible film.

Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.59

5.0 out of 5 stars A real nail biter, 11 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jurassic Park (Paperback)
This will ruin the film for you as it is nothing like it...it is so much better! Crichton is an incredible writer and pulls you into the story from the start, but be careful as I bit off three of my nails in anticipation for what was coming next!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thought I'd made a mistake, but a YouTube video turned it all around, 11 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these headphones to connect to my iPod/iPhone while running and was a little anxious having read the reviews.

The first time I tried them, I was really worried I'd made a mistake as they fell out a lot during my run and I didn't think you could switch tracks.

However, I used the little attachments that are crescent shaped and hook under your ears after watching a YouTube video (MPOW Swift Bluetooth Headphones by Joseph Daly - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6kojoGaGACE) and they are AMAZING! They stay in for my whole run, have incredible sound quality and block out any other noise - I even started using them at work when I need to focus. Plus, don't worry, you can change tracks as Joseph Daly explains in the video!

If you're looking for a good set of wireless headphones, buy these.

My only warning would be that if you take them out after sweating, then they can be hard to stay in after that.

Manufacturer suggestion: include diagrams and more information in the instruction leaflet or your customers will have no clue how to use the equipment.

The Sinner: (Rizzoli & Isles series 3)
Price: £3.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Nail biter, 11 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Tess Gerritsen is a talented author mainly because of her incredibly story building techniques and the fact that, as a doctor, she is able to accurately talk about the medical side of the story with credibility that develops the overall story further. The Sinner is the third book in the Rizzoli & Isles series and is about murder in a cloistered convent - it's a nail biter with characters you'll want to follow into the next book!
