I had a Levin one before - but this is so worth the extra money, tighter fit and all the mute button works.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic stay-in-place headphone, with a great sound, 21 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant Headphones, they stay in your ear, whether walking or running, (I don't know if I have odd shaped ears, but I find in-ear and most other over ear headphones uncomfortable and need constant re-positioning/adjusting). They also sound great!

I am on my 4th pair (I lose them on a regular basis). For running walking or just general listening (when you don't want to carry around a pair of over-ear ones) they are superb, and such a great price.

A great story, I felt the ending was a bit abrupt, but thoroughly enjoyed it overall. Will read more Neil Asher

5.0 out of 5 stars A Book For Anyone Who Likes Making Curries, But Not Shopping, 3 Jun. 2007
Using ingredients readily available at your local supermarket this book gives clear, easy to follow, instruction to making many favourites. I have a couple if Curry books but this is the one we delve into each Saturday night.

Heartily recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars A Treat for any Home Baker, 3 Jun. 2007
I have to admit that I have not delved too much into the pastry section, however I can vouch for the bread side of it. The recipes as with the Handmade Loaf tend to need a little preplanning, and can be fussy (though not complicated), but the results are worth it - the flavour of Dan Lepard's Garlic Bread is an experience rather more than food, and should appear on any '50 things to eat before you die' list.

If you are only interested in the bread element then buy 'Exceptional Breads' instead as it is basically the bread section of this book, but I recommend this one, as the pictures alone are enough to get you baking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably the most innovative baker around, 3 Jun. 2007
This review is from: The Handmade Loaf (Hardcover)
This is a wonderful, wonderful book, that I use all the time. Dan Lepard must be one of the most innovate bakers in the UK (if not the world) today, and an inspiration. His recipes are fantastic. His Barley, Rye and Wheat loaf tastes just like your memory tells you bread should taste.

One thing to note however is there are a lot of steps to his recipes, and they do tend to need a little pre-planning. The results though are worth it, however you may find that (like me) you start to take some short cuts.

I am also not sure if this is the best 'first book' for a novice (Linda Collister's The Bread Book' will always be my recommendation as a first book), but definitely an essential for the shelf, and a must for anyone looking to expand their range.
