5.0 out of 5 stars Fourplay are the best in this type of music, 29 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Silver (Audio CD)
Fourplay are the best in this type of music. Melodic, relaxed and technically brilliant. Probably not their very best. Chuck Loeb, current guitarist, has significant positive impact on current style. Can't wait for gold!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great listening and a little more jazzy than studio albums, 29 Oct. 2015

Having just seen Grusin and Ritenour live this is an accurate representation of what they play now. As they have got older they have become a little less exciting but both are legends of the genre. Great listening and a little more jazzy than studio albums.

This review is from: Black Sails: Season 1 [DVD] (DVD)
Not as lively as expected and did not hold my attention. The opposite of a "page turner"

5.0 out of 5 stars Suitable, 28 April 2015

Did the job. Good for small size shots and portraits but unsuitable for anything much bigger. Build quality a bit lightweight and had some intermittent problems with flash trigger which might have been my fault. Overall satisfied and value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple to follow but harder than you think., 29 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having been intrigued by a Tai Chi class in China I bought this to find out more. Good explanations. The warm up exercises look a bit like old fashioned keep fit but even they are tiring to start with and coordinating moving arms in opposite directions is challenging at first. The exercises are broken down into manageable tasks. Imagine doing exercises in the mirror but even the basics are more complex than they look. Slowly you remember the routines and can carry them out in around 20 minutes. The goal is always to take longer, go slower and increase balance and control. I bought another DVD at the same time which I will tackle after this one is done. Stick with it at your own pace and reap the benefit.


RapidWeaver 5 Beginner's Guide

5.0 out of 5 stars Very practical, 29 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The problem with Rapidweaver is that you can make good basic websites very quickly and easily but they tend to be not quite as good as you would like them to be. To get them to a higher level you either need to be a techie, familiar with more complex software or to spend more money on plug ins. The Joe Workman book fills in the gaps in a simple informative way and gives you the pointers to achieve the Webpages you really want to achieve. It is practical and hands on rather than a reference book. I have had several Eureka moments as a result of the purchase.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 7 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have eaten at Gauthier Soho and enjoyed it. I expected this book on vegetables to have the same flair and innovation but it did not. I think the layout and design of the book did not help. It was garish and unfriendly to read. I have tried several of the recipes and not been imporessed so far, but I will persevere in hope.

3.0 out of 5 stars Basically good, 26 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I enjoyed the TV programme and bought the book. Unfortunately it does not replicate the more complicated dishes I recall from the programmes and focusses on the basic 'tapas' type of dish which proliferate. Jose visits many of the world class restaurants in Spain and I would have liked more of an introduction to the intricate and delightful dishes which he enjoyed there. So, basically good.
