5.0 out of 5 stars Great game!, 15 Oct 2013

This review is from: Jenga (Toy)
This is a great, simple game! I'd say it is appropriate for ages 6 and up, it's loads of fun and pretty indestructible!


Inefficient Markets: An Introduction to Behavioral Finance (Clarendon Lectures in Economics)
Inefficient Markets: An Introduction to Behavioral Finance (Clarendon Lectures in Economics)
by Andrei Shleifer
Edition: Paperback
Price: £27.00

3.0 out of 5 stars Good little book, best appreciated by economists/finance experts, 15 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this book as an ex-astrophysicist wanting to learn about financial markets. It's basically a collection of papers on a few different topics in finance, ultimately arguing for the behavioural finance model over the efficient market hypothesis. The first chapter, on the efficient market hypothesis (and evidence for/against it) is really good, and I learnt a lot reading it. The rest of the book went a bit over my head, not being a finance expert, but there were bits here and there I took something away from. Overall I'd say the book was very good for the things I wanted it for, but I cannot rate most of it because I don't know enough about finance to appreciate it.

4.0 out of 5 stars My girlfriend loves them!, 15 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these for my girlfriend as she's mad about cows and likes warm feet. The slippers are warm and cosy, and highly amusing to look at. She's had them less than a year so I can't say whether they are robust in the long-term, but they were a great buy.

Football Thermals : OCTAVE® Mens Three Quarter [¾] Thermal Long Johns - Made in England [Small, Ice White]

4.0 out of 5 stars Great thermals for training in the cold, 15 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these thermals to wear underneath my karate suit (Gi). I hated training in a cold school hall in the winter and worried about pulling/tearing muscles. These thermals are an ideal fix because the 3/4 length is not visible under the trousers of my Gi, but keep my calves up to my waist nice and warm during training.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book for those with some coding experience, 15 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been programming in C/Matlab and a little html for several years, but had no previous experience with dynamic web page programming, nor database queries with MySQL. This book gives excellent and clear instructions on how to set up a database server, and then gives step-by-step instructions (with concrete examples throughout) of how to set up dynamic webpages, and use them to query a MySQL database. The CSS section is mainly about styling your webpages, from setting up background colours to developing full style classes that can bring great uniformity to a whole website spanning multiple pages. I read this book from cover to cover and enjoyed every bit of it, and I learnt a huge amount too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Robust phone case, 15 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This case will protect your phone! It has large shock absorbeing rubber corners and a solid plastic backing. None of the protection affects functionality; all the top/side buttons work fine, and headphones/usb ports are easily accessible. Note that there is no cover or protection for the screen, but you can get these elsewhere. Great product.

This review is from: Magic Tree (Toy)
The magic tree 'flowers' crystals pretty quickly. The colours are varied and it's a great little toy to get kids interested in science.

This is a sturdy lolo ball, great fun to play on, and tough enough to take the battering that it will probably get!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for me., 15 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read a book about PHP, MySQL, Java and CSS and wanted an equivalent book for Microsoft's web programming framework. This book isn't it. I read a few pages and rapidly realised that there was very little of use, there were very few concrete examples, and I never really got off the ground. It might be useful for those with little programming experience as the level of the book is fairly basic, but even then I doubt a beginner would take much away from it.


Bruce Lee: The Return of the Legend
Bruce Lee: The Return of the Legend

4.0 out of 5 stars Great 70's throwback game, 14 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great side-scrolling platform beat-em-up, with a surprising depth to the combat and plenty of variety in level design. The range of attacks at your disposal is impressive, with standard punches/kicks/blocks augmented with knife, nunchaku and bo weapons. Beating up the numerous enemies is thus interesting and varied, and lots of fun! The trademark Bruce Lee shouts are present, while some enemies have speech exclamations too. Throw in a ragingly 70s soundtrack and a decent length story campaign (about 1hr 30min total) and unlockable bonuses, and you've got a game that's loads of fun and an authentic Bruce Lee experience! The visuals deserve a mention too, with smooth animation, plenty going on on-screen (I saw no slowdown with multiple enemies), and some impressive zoom in/out effects. Highly recommended!
