How Do We Fix This Mess?: The Economic Price of Having it all, and the Route to Lasting Prosperity
How Do We Fix This Mess?: The Economic Price of Having it all, and the Route to Lasting Prosperity
Price: 6.17

5.0 out of 5 stars What the politicians do not tell you, 10 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Clear (and frightening) analysis of the global financial situation. This should be required reading- especially for those calling for the 'end of austerity' (and replace it with what?)

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential, 8 Mar. 2015

Well thought out design. You need this- iPhone 6 is delicate! Mine dropped 15" onto a wood floor and the screen shattered. Expensive. The curved corners NEED protection. This gives it. 5 stars for this, zero stars for Apple.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hit and miss, 7 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Generally an amusing and mildly informative book, slightly spoiled by the chapter on property. Here they make a schoolboy error with the graph that is the essence of the argument (different start indexes), and compound it with a statement that is clearly not true, even using their faulty graph. Not sure if this is a mistake or a lack of understanding (not sure which is worse)- expect better from business management consultants.
Most of the rest is interesting, but there is a feeling of 'padding' in parts, in order to reach a book length.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a life guide, 30 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
OK, but not as interesting as his cartoons... Basically the autobiography of someone that kept trying business ideas until he was successful- and then carried on trying! Probably lost much of what he has earned. My guess is that he is bored with what he does, and looks for excitement/uncertainty to put interest into his life. Only real lesson is not to emulate- if you succeed at something, stick to that. As Scott says, it is all about luck. But then I hear lottery winners still buy tickets...

beats a backpack for travelling any day. Holds a heap of stuff (including tablet) and you can hitch extra stuff on the Molle system.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genuine ergonomic, 6 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At last, a wireless truly ergonomic (the keys drop away from you, just like your wrists do!) keyboard that does not cost a fortune. I have been able to dump my old keyboard that is blocked up at the front to give correct hand posture. Separate numeric is useful- especially for gaming (either hand, wherever you want it) and the inbuilt calculator key I use often.
Mouse wrong shape and bulk for me (I prefer a logitec) but others might like it- and this product is worth it for the keyboard alone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great tool, 6 Nov. 2014
Brilliant! Great for finding the cold spots in your house, and when your heat is escaping. Amazing value at the price.

3.0 out of 5 stars Installation issues, 6 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
works, but so large internally that it will not fit the recommended 35mm box unless the internal cables are in exactly the right place. Good luck with that. So you end up with the 10mm extension sticking it out from the wall. This is supposed to be for 25mm boxes- do not believe it would be enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars remarkably good, 6 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Remarkably good product. Bought as a phone battery backup with the added benefit of a torch, I have found myself using it often for the torch - it is bright and easy to carry. Double pressing to switch on, and having to double click twice (through the SOS feature) to turn off is mildly annoying, but well worth the other benefits. Well built.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mostly good, 6 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Generally very interesting, provokes thought. Only area of error is in property as investment- the rent saved by ownership is totally ignored... Otherwise a good book.
