1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid at all costs, 10 Feb. 2013
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The PS3 doesn't recognize them, it's a hassle to make them work. The PC sees them but won't output any sound through them. Waste of money and time, I'm now looking for other headsets to buy. Some that actually work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent sequel, 12 Oct. 2011
This review is from: Tonoharu: Part Two (Hardcover)
Great graphic novel about alienation and coping with life in a small Japanese village. The protagonist is an English substitute teacher, coming from the US. Can't wait for part three!

5.0 out of 5 stars An insightful dive into what makes advertising so great, 26 Sept. 2011
I want to take the time to recommend it to everyone. Now, as you know, John Hegarty is an icon of advertising, and one of the founders of BBH, one of the most famous agencies in the world. He is still running things from his office in London.

Now what this book gets you is knowledge from the man who founded an agency in the late half of the 80's and turned it into a global phenomenon, still keeping it independent. BBH is not owned by any huge group. So you will find out

-what is the good way to create and maintain a creative independent agency,
-how to win pitches,
-what a Creative Director means for an agency,
-how to manage creatives,
-how to achieve real success in the business
-many more pieces from the experience of John Hegarty.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book on death, life and our relationship with them, from the point of view of the species, 16 Sept. 2011
Excellent book on death, life and our relationship with them, from the point of view of the species. It goes through the latest philosophical thesis and thinking on the subject, and is written in a way that's far from the arid language of the academics. That is to say, it's easy to read and understand. Even if I may disagree on some of the points stipulated, especially those about transhumanism (I choose to perpetuate the conspiracy a bit more in this regard), I cannot find any fault for this author or this book. So please disregard the negative ratings you've seen, and give it a try. Even if you don't disagree, I think you'll find the book well worth buying and reading. Just because you don't agree with an author doesn't mean you should rate the book down.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite interesting, 15 Aug. 2011
The graphics selected are very good, and I enjoyed browsing through it. However, I think the book is too small, and some of the illustration details can't be fully appreciated at those dimensions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deep and impactful, 15 Aug. 2011
This review is from: Seeds (Paperback)
This is one of the most interesting graphic novels to hit the market lately. It is very well written and carries quite a punch for it's short length. I definitely recommend it.


Welcome to Advertising! Now Get Lost
Welcome to Advertising! Now Get Lost
by Omkar Sane
Edition: Paperback
Price: £15.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny, 9 Aug. 2011
The book takes place in the Advertising industry, and is written with the eyes of an outsider, since the author didn't spend enough time inside to be counted as an insider. Even so, it is so well written and so funny (and true in the way of a caricature can be true) that it doesn't matter anymore. I recommend this book for anyone working in advertising. Even if it's about Indian Advertising, you'll find that it is the same no matter where in the world you're working.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sad, sad book, 6 April 2011
This review is from: The Greek Seaman (Kindle Edition)
I wish I had something better to say about this book, but I couldn't finish it because of all the grammar mistakes and unprofessional phrasing.


Guitar Hero 6: Warriors of Rock - Full Band Bundle (PS3)
Guitar Hero 6: Warriors of Rock - Full Band Bundle (PS3)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great game, but watch out., 4 Feb. 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This is a great game, hands down. If you're a fan of the music game genre, this is a welcome addition. However, the bundle is just the band hero instruments and it has nothing to do with Guitar Hero 6. Also, if you own Rock Band you will NOT be able to play the drums on it, as the drums are not compatible, even though Rock Band's website says they are. So keep that in mind also.

Machine of Death: A collection of stories about people who know how they will die
Price: £2.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent short story collection, 30 Nov. 2010
An incredible journey into a world which is different than ours by only one thing. There's a death machine that tells you how you die. Vaguely. This premise is great for a TV show also, and I urge the authors to try an sell such a script.
