An excellent piano/keyboard that is easy to install and easy to use with fine key effects. This will be an ideal replacement for my aging upright piano.

It does need a stand to make it a complete success. But that's easily solved.

April 1865: The Month That Saved America (P.S.)

Written by an expert in international relations with practical experience, I hoped for more insight into the mechanics of Lincoln's decision making. It offers little. Just the usual sentimentally trite hagiography of other Lincoln apologists. His writing style is a little burdensome. Once I'd spotted his love of using triplet tags in sentences I found I couldn't look beyond it. It should, perhaps, have been written in epic form - as a poem. Something tells me Winik might have been more at home in that format.

There are some interesting details the help set the scene - but these are really just that. Interesting trivia which add to the picture only for the completion of knowledge, not some devastating and extra insight into Lincoln's mind or the mind of those about him. Really, it tells the story of Lincoln as the practical politician implementing a politically expedient of freedom to slaves in rebellious states - yet still, somehow, attempts to makes him out to be a hero of unfailing and profound humanity.

Where the book shines is how, in a few paragraphs, it neatly reviews General Lee and his rise to power and prominence.

I'm not kidding - this book is the product of immense learning and a clear understanding of what's going on in the world and the technologies relevant to hydrocarbons and solar power. This has to become the standard work in this area of learning.

Edition: Unknown Binding

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book - clear analysis, 9 Dec. 2013

I got into Dr Spanier's writing recently and I have to say: it's pretty effect stuff! He writes clearly and outlines the twists and turns of international politics with ease and makes the mysterious understandable.

I'd recommend his work to anyone with an interest in international relations.
