5.0 out of 5 stars Very cool..., 28 Oct 2012
We were after a small but good quality dock for our living room, and the A5 has fitted perfectly. It took ages to wade through all the different docks/streaming systems on the market, and just as long to translate all the jargon into english, so for all you people who want to choose a stereo without having to take a degree in computer science first here's what I've learned.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just the Thing!, 12 Nov 2010
Bought this for my 7yr old son to use alongside his lessons on Tme in Yr 2. Hopefully it will boost his confidence with maths too.
The book is basic but well laid out. Some of the exercises use the stickers supplied and they are fun and colourful.
The book builds from the idea of 'before and after' (eg 'do you turn on a tap before or after you wash your hands?')to learning the clockface, counting on in 5 mins, telling the o'clocks/quarter of an hour/half an hour, the 24 hour clock and plenty of practice exercises besides.
For the price it's excellent.

Not only is it interesting to hear Freud's conversations with Gayford which are entertaining and absorbing(ranging from his outspoken opinions on Raphael and Leonardo, colourful characters from his past, his working methods, previous models, his relationship with Francis Bacon to what is for dinner/lunch) but it's also very interesting to see inside the head of the sitter himself as the picture develops and is finally completed.
Well written and easy to read. I could happily reread this many times. I liked all the pictures referred to in the text being reproduced in the book close to/opposite where they are mentioned so there is no endless flicking back and forth.
Excellent for… Read more
