They fit the sonic toothbrush, work well and last a month. I can't think of much else to say, other than that they are a little expensive.


The Expedition of Humphry Clinker
The Expedition of Humphry Clinker
Price: £0.00

4.0 out of 5 stars All eighteenth century life is here and it is funny., 17 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an early novel, written in the form of letters from various members of the expedition to their friends and family. The comedy derives from having incidents described from the viewpoints of the different characters, producing wildly varying opinions and observations. This is an uncommon format for modern novels, the nearest today would be exchanges of emails! Once you have become accustomed to the mannered language and can understand the characters involved, such as the hypochondriac squire and his desperate spinster sister, you can wallow in the lugubrious pace and subtle characterisation. All eighteenth century life is here and it is funny.


Double Bed Vancouver Wooden Pine Bed 4ft Wooden Frame
Double Bed Vancouver Wooden Pine Bed 4ft Wooden Frame

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but a couple of issues, 24 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This frame is alright, if a little minimal. The one delivered was missing two drilled holes for dowels, but not in a structurally important area. After some use the hex bolts became loose and required tightening. Other than that, it fits in the space well (too small for a 4' 6" double) and is comfortable. Would recommend for a guest bed.


Small Business Marketing For Dummies
Small Business Marketing For Dummies
by Paul Lancaster
Edition: Paperback
Price: £13.59

4.0 out of 5 stars A good introduction to marketing, 24 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
If you are starting your own business one of the most important factors is the need to market your product. This book is a straightforward guide which takes you through the steps involved in preparing and targeting your marketing campaigns. There is a wealth of useful information which will be of benefit to a wide range of businesses.
This is one of the books where you will probably not read it cover to cover. Instead you will read the introductory chapters, then use the later parts where the detail is contained. There is much useful besides the obvious, such as brand marketing, pricing strategies and the use of social media.
As a guide to the practices of marketing this is a very useful introduction. It will not make you a marketing genius, but it will allow you to talk in the same language as any marketing people you might employ if your business really takes off.
I have a few Dummies guides, and this is one of the best. As the owner of a small business you have to be a jack of all trades, and too much information in any area outside of your core business is an unwelcome distraction. This is a fine compromise and is informative without ever being condescending.


Something Fresh: (Blandings Castle)
Something Fresh: (Blandings Castle)
by P.G. Wodehouse
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.39

4.0 out of 5 stars First outing for Blandings, 5 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wodehouse creates worlds as bizarre and improbable as any form of science fiction. The world of Blandings is forst revealed in this novel. Most of the enduring characters are introduced here, such as Clarence, Connie, Freddie and Beech the butler. These characters form the scenery around which the transient actors perform. The world is not yet fully realised, but is very nearly there, and only more familiarity with the scenery would give it more joy. There is a wonderful speech given by the heroine where she explains the snobbishness of the Servant's Hall to the hero who is posing as a valet. Do not confuse this with the two-dimensional TV series, this is a joy of witty words and farcical misunderstandings. Wodehouse seemed incapable of writing badly, and this is a joy to read. I recommend it highly


Subliminal: The New Unconscious and What it Teaches Us
Subliminal: The New Unconscious and What it Teaches Us
by Leonard Mlodinow
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £17.02

4.0 out of 5 stars Why do you behave in the way you do?, 26 Feb 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
You may have rationalised that what you believe is the logic of your decisions yet be unaware just how much your unconscious nature affects those choices. Everyone makes thousands of choices an hour, and those that you don’t think about are automatic, and unconscious. Even those which require deliberate thought are profoundly affected by tour subconscious.
The way we experience the world is dependent on the signals received by our brain and the way this information is processed. No matter how much we believe that we are independent and logical beings, there is much underlying which is inbuilt or learned unconsciously.
In this readable and entertaining book Leonard Mlodinow provides many examples of the effect of the unconscious and links this with research, much recent, which links such behaviour with information about the workings of the brain. Arranged into handy chapters, this is a book to dip into, or to read by subject areas rather than a novel to be taken in at one time. I recommend it be read in manageable chunks and fully appreciated for what it can tell you about yourself.


Wired for Culture: The Natural History of Human Cooperation
Wired for Culture: The Natural History of Human Cooperation
by Mark Pagel
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Culture and Co-operation, 20 Feb 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The history of human culture is less than 100,000 years old. When modern type humans left Africa they brought with them a good deal of social baggage. The ability to transmit knowledge, beliefs and practices is as important as the ability to out-compete other groups. Co-operation in small groups of hunter gathers was the key to survival in the Ice Ages and the trigger for expansion into a wide variety of environments.
These small groups established their own cultures, languages and patterns of behaviour. This explains the tribal attitudes we now have. It is the ability to remember, no matter how inaccurately, what out cultural history is. The Author argues that culture is responsible for language, intelligence and conciousness, rather than those leading to culture. This is an intriguing argument and one which points a way forward. It explains why we display so many aspects of tribal behaviour and rejoice in our differences. Knowing why we act in this way should enable us to better co-operate with other cultures and individuals outside our own culture.
