Bye Bye Banks?: How Retail Banks are Being Displaced, Diminished and Disintermediated by Tech Startups and What They Can Do to Survive
Bye Bye Banks?: How Retail Banks are Being Displaced, Diminished and Disintermediated by Tech Startups and What They Can Do to Survive
by James Haycock
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Little gem of a book, 10 Aug. 2015
A great little book, highly recommended to anyone working in technology, banking/financial services, or anyone with a curious mind really. The book focuses very well on its message, which is reinforced throughout the book: banks are being displaced, diminished and disintermediated. And introducing the very interesting concept of a Beta Bank. What I also liked about the book is that its ideas could easily be used for other markets, making it even more valuable to a wider array of people and actual/future entrepreneurs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun read, very imaginative, 26 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for my son and have had a read of it myself. Parts of the book reminded me a bit of Terry Pratchett, but for younger readers. Slightly surreal, but also funny. Definitely an author to watch. Giving it four stars because it's only available as an e-book at the moment - hopefully a paperback version is coming soon, because it would make a great Christmas present!

4.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly investigated book, 19 Jan. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was pleasantly surprised by this book and by the depth of Hitchens' research. Very well written and well structured, it spans through centuries of events, facts and tales without losing the point.
This book really shook me and made me rethink my own approach towards religions.

4.0 out of 5 stars It says what it does on the tin, 20 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Used this hard drive for months now and proved to be fast and reliable. It's also very small, which makes it easy to carry around in a bad.
It does what it says on the tin, which is what I was looking for. And it does like Apple OSX...

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! A must have for any Killers fan, 12 April 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The DVD + CD combo is great value for money but, more importantly, it's absolutely brilliant! I was at Royal Albert Hall on the first night and I can tell that the DVD offers the same amazing energy I found there live.
If you like the Killers you can't miss this epic performance.


God Explained in a Taxi Ride
God Explained in a Taxi Ride
by Paul Arden
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple yet profound, 13 Feb. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
God explained in a tax ride is a great book only if you approach it with the right mindset - if you want to question things and think critically about them, if you have doubts about religion and faith rather than a strong opinion (on both sides of the spectrum). And no, it's not true that "this little book explains once and for all" as the title says, but that's exactly the beauty of this little book, which doesn't tell you what is right or wrong but it allows the reader to think about it and find their own truth and belief.
Arden's observations made me think well beyond what the words printed on paper say. If you don't approach the book that way and take your time to think through it you'll be surely disappointed and give it a negative rating... and you'll surely read it in 20 minutes, which is not nearly enough to have a serious thought about the message Arden tries (very well in my opinion) to communicate.
