The Revolution Betrayed
The Revolution Betrayed
by Leon Trotsky
Edition: Paperback
Price: £11.49

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting book on Russian history after the Revolution, 9 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although this is a good book by Leon Trotsky on communist Russia I think it is written from the viewpoint of some one who is already familiar with the works of Lenin. Otherwise a good book on the state of Russia post revolution.


An Actor Prepares (Bloomsbury Revelations)
An Actor Prepares (Bloomsbury Revelations)
by Constantin Stanislavski
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.19

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting incite into acting psychology, 9 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I only had a curiosity into classical acting and decided to get this book. It reads more like a story dairy so is easy to follow and a little bit funny in parts. Stanislavski's teacher gives a lot of interesting incite into how actors should behave. I think this transfers to other types of performance like music too. Very well written even if you are not an actor.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very poor, 9 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although this book has been republished I feel that the original is very poor for anyone looking to gain information on historical violin makers. Quite a lot of the makers are not detailed at all and just given a price tag. Best saving up for one of the rarer books like Woodcock for makers around the 1800s-early 1900s.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best Irish fiddle book I've found, 9 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although this book is intermediate, I felt that the songs are not that hard to master and each song introduces a new technique. The book includes a lot of well known songs and has a CD with a slowed down version of the song so you can easily pick it up. Great book for anyone wishing to take up the Fiddle.

3.0 out of 5 stars Tedious peace of work, 14 May 2013
This review is from: Lenin: A Biography (Paperback)
I started reading this book in an effort to better understand Russian history and the revolution. At the start a lot of mentioned about Lenin's relatives and when he was at a very young age him self. Maybe some of this is important but I couldn't see how any of this text was relevant to Lenin's later life as a politician. It feels as if this book is full of endless padding to bring it to the level of other biographical works. Peoples name are often mentioned but its hard to really picture any of their personalities. Now and again there are quotes from the various people mentioned but nothing which gives away their personalities. Over all it feels like a dull history book which includes dates and places but gives no real insight into Lenin or Russian socialism.
