2.0 out of 5 stars Not good, 21 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was not a good buy, chiefly because of the mirror front. Why did anyone market this at all? You can't see the blinking at all, especially in the sun!

Bought this on the basis of his other books and have not been disappointed at all. Well thought through and presented; clear and eminently professional, yet not stuffy and very readable.

Easy to read and like most inspirational books a little difficult to practise! Worth reading although its a little small.

Yamaha YAS101bl SoundBar System with Built-In Subwoofer - Black

Having purchased an LED tv, I found, like a lot of buyers I guess, that the sound was somewhat thin....like the tv.! So that led me to look at sound equipment to give it a boost, but I didn't want to have speakers around the room and especially not the tall slim ones. After looking on line at various options I bought the Yamaha blind but had experience of the brand and guessed that it would be a good buy; I wasn't looking for something that cost the earth but wanted something I could listen to that was good and faithfully reproduced the sound.
The package arrived bang on time - good old DPD - and from receiving it to listening it took around 10 minutes; very easy to install in front of the tv and wire up using the fibre optic cable included; there is a template included if you wanted to wall hang it. The sound is excellent from what is quite a small unit and I've no regrets at all with the purchase from a performance point of view. It may take some time to get used to the surround sound as I've not had that before but I love being THERE - watching a movie is a big advantage with the extra dimension of sound. I also have Apple TV so I can play iTunes through my iPad and get the sound through that way - why does anyone ever buy cd's any more!
The only slight drawback might be that the unit stands on legs and thus blocks the infra red receiving signal from the tv remote; the blurb says that the Yamaha will 'learn' the signals but if it doesn't the legs are removable and it's certainly not a problem. The other way of course is to place the tv on a book and raise it around 20mm.
If you want a good, relatively inexpensive piece of kit to bring decent sound to add to your viewing, I'd not hesitate to recommend it; the only other one I might have bought would have been the BOSE, but with the price tag it came with, I wasn't prepared to go there. You won't be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Monty's Masterpiece!, 8 May 2010

This review is from: The Ivington Diaries (Hardcover)
When I first saw this product advertised and read a review on it, I knew it had to be a purchase. The content is culled from his own diaries written over a period of years, with his own photographs used throughout; don't expect hi-res masterpieces of photography though as they are instead genuine shots taken at varying times of day around the garden. The months use daily inserts but from different years; quite a novel way really to approach a work like this, which can be read either as chapters or as a daily reading plan. If you begin to read only a day at a time, you will find as I have that it is hard to put it down. But overwhelmingly I just love the narrative, the humour and the plain-speaking he uses; his knowledge base is huge and the journalistic talent is very evident. Altogether a great purchase and one I would recommend without reservation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Consistently sound and very readable NT, 30 Oct. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We have been amazed at Colin's depth of understanding of the Scriptures over the years and this interpretation of the New Testament is yet another indication of his grasp of textual and translational issues; it goes without saying that this is written from the background of a life solidly based in God and His Word. The result is a work which is both correct and inspiring; it's not an informed but dry read which you feel you can put down easily. It longs to be read and one ends up reading the Scriptures as they were written before the translators invented chapters and verses; the whole meaning of the various sections become less punctuated abd interrupted and flow much better. It is also how the Bible was written; it's in the language of the day and is a New Testament for our time. Well worth buying and definitely more worth reading!
