4.0 out of 5 stars Good build quality and good fit., 30 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a well made leather wallet, including a plastic case inside which provides a very snug and secure fit with the phone. All ports and switches are accessible, and the pattern makes it less likely you'll lose the phone. As you can see from the photo the clasp hangs down over the top of phone, a minor drawback, but it doesn't obscure the screen display just the Samsung logo, so not really a problem. Offers good protection at a reasonable price.


Natural Dreams: Music for Relaxation 10 Cd Box Set
Natural Dreams: Music for Relaxation 10 Cd Box Set
Offered by Zest for Life
Price: £16.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value - my favourite relaxing sounds, 25 April 2012
I bought this in one of the discount shops, not on Amazon, but I think it's amazing value. Amazon Odyssey is probably my favourite album in the set, but the music quality across the albums is wonderful. No singing, which I find makes the albums more relaxing. This is all the relaxation music you'll need.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really relaxing and melodic, 25 April 2012
I got this as part of a bargain 10 CD set, and for me this album stands out. It's great company when I'm working and studying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works for me., 6 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Maybe I was lucky but this worked straightaway for me - Yamaha PSR-410 keyboard, Ubuntu Linux 64 bit, Acer PC. At this price, it's excellent value. Given that even with Yamaha's own cable some people seem to have had problems, I'm very pleased.


Mobs, Messiahs, and Markets: Surviving the Public Spectacle in Finance and Politics (Agora Series)
Mobs, Messiahs, and Markets: Surviving the Public Spectacle in Finance and Politics (Agora Series)
by William Bonner
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £19.99

3.0 out of 5 stars A mixed bag, 31 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am definitely a fan of Mr Bonner and his newsletter, 'The Daily Reckoning', but I'd agree that this book doesn't really add value to what you can get online. It's good, and while parts of it I disagree with, on the whole it's stimulating and interesting, I just don't think it's worth a read if you're online.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent sound quality and solid build., 31 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is not a cheap radio, but it's good value for money. The radio feels solid and sound quality and reception for me was excellent. The controls are very easy to use and the display is nice and bright. I only use it with the supplied mains adaptor, so the price of the chargepak is not an issue. In my experience all Pure DAB radios work well, and this is no exception.

4.0 out of 5 stars Takes me back, 15 Sept. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Help It Along (Audio CD)
I remember this recording from the 70s and hearing it still makes me smile and happy. It's uplifting and bright, and catchy tunes. It isn't Cliff's greatest album, but it has a simplicity that lasts.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful book, 15 Sept. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a gorgeous book to hold. The print quality is just right, and the all time master of the English language shines through. The footnotes don't alway's hit the right balance, between excess and shortage, but are never intrusive. It is still amazing to me that this man, from so long ago, in such a different age and circumstance, without the advantages we enjoy, should still stand unparalleled as the greatest writer in English with depth, insight and poetry dripping constantly from the mouths of his dramatic creations. If you baulk at the price, by all means enjoy a cheaper copy, there'll be some in your nearby charity shop, but this edition is well worth it to me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterclass, 5 Oct. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've not finished reading this yet, but am impressed by the intelligence and clarity of this book. It clarifies and explains how chance can affect outcomes, and is a great antidote to wishful, lazy or magical thinking. An intellectual but unpretentious read which will reward a slight effort with understanding. Highly recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing., 5 Oct. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A shallow and superficial skimming of assorted issues. I didn't read it from cover to cover but dipped into it and learnt nothing. It read like idle speculation and lazy thinking with little insight, and despite it's brevity not much clarity or wit. I'm returning my copy.
