Samurai: The World of the Warrior (Special Edition&hellip by Stephen Turnbull
The author is, rightly, a renowned expert in this field, and this book is a good example of his work. The depth of research is impressive, but the writing lively and interesting so the book is not a 'dry' read. A wide and rich variety of very appropriate illustrations help to illuminate rather than just decorate the text. Jaspanese culture is not the easiest to understand for a westerner, but books like this certainly help to make sense of the world of the samurai.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great dance sequences, 25 Aug 2012
The story line was corny, but that didn't matter because the point of the film was probably to showcase street dance - and there were excellent dance sequences to watch. The film explores the idea of street and ballet dancers combining their strengths. The audience initially boos the classical dance moves, but, inevitably, is won round and cheers the team to victory. The final performance is good but, but the genres were more effectively combined in a superb recent stage production by Flawless and English National Ballet, which showed just how brilliant this combination can be.

I wanted a high capacity CF for my Canon 7D camera which, with 18 megapixels, uses a lot of memory. I also wanted quick access and reliability as I was going on a 'holiday of a lifetime'. Despite taking many still pictures, and a fair bit of video, there was still capacity in the CF card at the end of three weeks! The only drawback is the price!
