2.0 out of 5 stars This was a poor Kindle buy, 13 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was a poor Kindle buy. Not only was the teaching method suspect - I was a teacher of three languages for 39 years - but there were numerous errors of presentation and proof reading seemed mediocre.For instance romanised pronunciation offered regularly failed to pick up the th sound of delta, the absence of the n in andio or the correct pronunciation of gamma.
In addition the Kindle version could not cope with tables, half being lost to the right.

4.0 out of 5 stars A better model?, 19 Feb. 2015

Very pleased though getting used to the total touch screen menus has taken time. Sync'd well with old Kindle -- just hope it lasts a bit longer than that one did. I've been through 6 within my family in fewer years.

2.0 out of 5 stars Is it worth the extra cash?, 14 Nov. 2013

I compared this product with the Sainsbury's multivitamin and it was 95% the same at about 3 times the cost for a third of the content! Suggest eating a healthy diet alongside the later pills!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value, 14 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a sound work for the (near) beginner and allows a clear overview of different translation possibilities. Given the limited corpus of NT Greek it is not very big - about 180 double columned pages but I have not failed to find what I wanted using the companion CUP Introduction by Duff.


The Beginner's Guide to Art
The Beginner's Guide to Art
by Brigitte Govignon
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Sound but why so few well known artworks, 14 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this book having borrowed it from the library. It is very clearly written with a full historical survey, followed by an alphabetical biography of artists, incl. sculptors and architects.
I have two criticisms:
1) the work is a French translation and is rather geared to that country with some rather more obscure artists and largely French examples.
2) the historical section refers you to some of the individual artist biographies which requires unnecessary page turning and for many of the best known artists there is only one illustration which is frequently by far form being the artist's best known work.
Overall good value and a sound intro to art trends since the cavemen.

This review is from: Face The Music (MP3 Download)
It was great to re-find this LP after losing my vinyl and having it available on computer, phone and hifi USB

3.0 out of 5 stars You have to be fascinated by the subject!, 11 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was somewhat disappointed by a work that made a big claim and took an awfully long time to try and evidence it. I am smitten by linguistics ( graduate) so learnt a lot (in chunks) but could not recommend this book to the casual reader. I was particularly disappointed as McWorter has a high reputation but to misquote a critic of Mozart it just has "too many words"!


Aftermath (An Inspector Banks Mystery Book 12)
Aftermath (An Inspector Banks Mystery Book 12)
Price: £4.19

4.0 out of 5 stars Another great Banks!, 11 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have read Banks' novels in a rather random order but overall they are becoming more complex, and just a little contrived. However with this work I was able to contrast the novel with the ITV film which I saw just two days later. You realised the subtlety of Robinson's creation and the radically different ending, whilst hard to take, was logical and very well presented.
I am now onto my next novel (an early one|) to try and complete the series to date before the author produces his next one.
Just one query: given the personal elements in his story - largely stripped from the TV version - is there not a fear that Banks will need to metamorphose, Dr Who-like, as he must be nearly retirement soon!

3.0 out of 5 stars So expensive!, 16 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ink costs are silly - pair of cartides cost the same as the printer - and I have been very disapointed that my new HP printer not only uses more ink - it won't print in black only - but seems to have a smaller cartridge for the same cost as my previous HP model. Fortunately there is a substantial discount from Amazon but I am very tempted to buy recycled in future!

3.0 out of 5 stars Cutting corners, 17 July 2010
These are nice looking, true, but there are issues on use. For instance if not used for a while the tubes can clogg up and pressing buttons causes the heat seal on the plastic bottles to crack open pouring stuff everwhere but through the outlet tube.The bottles are poor!
Hint: avoid Conditioner in large quantities and use regularly. This does not seem such a problem with shampoo and gel since these are thinner.
