5.0 out of 5 stars Great introduction, 7 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sumo: A History (Kindle Edition)
This is a really excellent introduction to a complicated subject. I read it before attending the Sumo in Tokyo this year and got so much more out of the experience as a result.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Crab Printed Bucket You'll Find, 18 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you're looking for a bucket with a picture of a crab on it, you're in for a treat. This bucket is the crabbiest bucket you'll find. Not only does it have the picture, it actually has "CRAB BUCKET" written on it so there's no one going to be confused about what it is. Definitely one for the shopping basket.

2.0 out of 5 stars The zip broke after 4 months, 18 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's not like I zipped and unzipped it everyday either. It just turns out it's not as well made as it looks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely book, 18 Feb. 2014

Very clear photos, good descriptions. Shows you which countries the bird is found in as well which was handy. Is a bit heavy to carry about but good to refer to at home.

1.0 out of 5 stars Lost 600GB of photos, documents. Very annoyed., 18 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am a rational person who doesn't write crazy reviews. I left the UK to work in Japan for a year so converted all my DVDs, photos, music etc so I could bring them with me. 5 months later the drive suddenly started doing the 'click of death'. I tried everything to recover my data. Yes, it is still in warranty but now I'm in a different country and a £50 refund isn't going to help me replace those 600GB. I really wouldn't buy this drive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works well with handy lights included, 30 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this on behalf of the office as we needed a decent webcam for broadcasting a google plus hangout. For the money this is excellent value and quality. The little lights are a handy addition for close up shots.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK but no good for testing, 21 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Personally I learn by trying to memorise a batch of letters and then test myself on them. This book just gives you the chance to write out each character about 15 times then move on tot he next. There is no space for testing yourself. So in one way the book is fine if that's all you want but it wasn't for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love it Except for Battery Life, 21 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
"Battery Life" is the wrong phrase since you use a cable to charge it but describes it well. Without being connected to the mains I only get 47 mins recording time. I had been fooled by the 'up to 10 hours recording time' claims into thinking it would record for that long before recharging but of course that just relates to the memory. Apart from that the picture is good and sound is fine. There is a cable to use it with the mains but it is really short (maybe 30cm?) so you'd need an extension cord which makes it far less compact and convenient than you might have thought.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wouldn't shrink once printed, 21 Oct. 2012
I followed the instructions and got nowhere. No shrinking and eventually it just went yellow and brittle. I tried shrinking another piece I hadn't printed and it did shrink but unevenly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting book, 17 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really admire bargello quilts and so bought this to have a go. This is quite an advanced book and so not really suitable for someone wanting to try out the technique on something small scale like me. Most of the quilts are double bed sized. Having said that they are beautiful and the instructions are very good. I would definitely recommend it to someone who knew about the technique and wanted to take it further.
