5.0 out of 5 stars A remarkable resource., 23 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Basics (Paperback)
This is positively encyclopaedic. It contains material passed down over many years. It is impossible to read or work through so being selective is a must. Sections are often begun with relevant points on technique, which I find illuminating. The title is a bit misleading, if you can master this your skill level will be way above basic. I only wish something similar was around in my early days of playing. It is an amazing resource.

This review is from: Hamlet: Part I (MP3 Download)
Yes the music is intrusive, yes Olivier cut and shuffled the text but for the sheer beauty of the sound of Shakespeare look no further.

I thought I could find my way around photo apps 'til I took a look at this book. There were quite a few corners I'd not found and they make a real difference. Very straightforward text and pics and great value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly remarkable., 20 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Image quality is better than my eyesight. Really love the retro look and functionality. The lens is all you need unless you are picky about distortion at the wide end. Could save many dollars. The compact size is a major plus particularly if you want to take people shots without being too intrusive.
Negatives are hard to find (it's digital ha-ha). The weight of the lens gives a different balance to most cameras but it's no big deal. I read that It is not ideal for sports subjects, not that I've tried.
The new breed of camera.

It can be a bit awkward and has once or twice made guest appearances in my shots. The leather is nice, imperial even...

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but..., 20 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good quality product. The only drawback is lack of easy access to the battery compartment etc. which, if you buy the full case, means removing 2 screws each time you charge up or connect to computer.

3.0 out of 5 stars Flimsy key parts., 4 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The 2 trays for paper input and the 1 for output are made of the cheapest plastic which matters because they have to be pulled in and out each time the printer is used. The cracking/creaking sound when this happens does not suggest a long life. The print quality is good but not as important as reliability. Inks from Epson are not cheap either. I definitely advise looking elsewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Poems to draw us back to what really matters., 22 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A clear, sensitive but unsentimental voice drawing us back to the things that really matter. Like much great writing it puts into words what we have always known but which has been too long out of sight. See also her 'Poetry Handbook' for insights into the structure of creative writing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely worth trying., 20 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got this recording half thinking it would be superficial and unhelpful. Not so. The guidance which is spoken over relaxing music contains sound advice, gently given. I find myself being reminded of it when thinking of or eating food. It does not fall into the trap of promising more than can be received.
