4.0 out of 5 stars Makes sense!, 19 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First time I read a book that explains nutrition in a way that makes sense. I started to follow the advice, and felt different from day 1. After two weeks, I am getting results. It may do with more advice on complementing types of food.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good book, but ingredients are from US..., 14 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book is very good. The recipes are easy, tasty and varied. The problem is that ingredients are brand specific and are not readily available out of the US.

The paint chips odd the tip, and looks quite bad. Convenient to carry, feels good in the hand, works well with different devices.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great entertainment if you like action films, 27 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent pack for a movie marathon weekend. You can potentially watch every movie on its own, but you would miss all the linking details. You get more out of it if you watch one film shortly after another, in the right order.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not fit for purpose., 3 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had the same product bought at the airport, and I was very happy with it. I bought this one as replacement, and the pockets are slightly different size, so passport does not fit in the passport pocket... Quality is not as good as the previous one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good tool..., 3 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very good sharpener, but the colour is not "Staedtler blue", as shown in the picture. It is purple. I had the blue version, and looks a lot better. This one works fine, anyway. Two tip sharpening dephts, one more suitable for drafting and the other for writing.

I have used Staedtler leadholders since I was in University (over 20 years!) and they offer excellent value for money.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Devil is on the detail"..., 6 Jan. 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Fritz Chess 13 (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
As chess software, Fritz lives up to it's reputation. It is a strong chess engine with a nice graphical user interface. It can adapt to your chess level, and you can do all sorts of tricks, like setting it to play the openings that you want. The games database is very good for the beginner and hobby player, and can be easily expanded with new games. The analysis functions are excellent to check your games and improve your play.

The major drawback is the poor instruction manual and help, even to set it up - which makes it loose a star in the rating. The most frustrating thing is that there is good information available, but you have to dig it from the notes on older versions found in the ChessBase website. Why not updating it and including it in the manual?

As on this version (13), there are no major changes from version 12, but the "Let's Check" and "Book Live" functions, which I do not use. I have had some issues with software bugs, as the chess set locking in one colour (I was not able to change playing from black to white), but I downloaded the update and seems to be working fine. If a previous version of Fritz is installed, I would recommend to back-up the existing databases and un-install it first (I uninstalled v12 after installing v13, and the white pieces dissappeared from the board - had to uninstall v13 and reinstall it).

For an absolute beginner, ChessMaster is probably a better option, as it is more user friendly and the chess tutorial is by far better. Once you get to the stage where more in-depth game analysis is required, Fritz is definitely better. I know some people who use both: ChessMaster to play the games, and Fritz to analyse them.

3.0 out of 5 stars Terrible diagrams, 25 July 2011
The book content is excellent, as covered in other reviews. But the diagrams are terrible. Many are just unreadable. It looks more like the printout of a scanned photocopy than an edition o re-impression of a book. If you can live with this, enjoy!!!
