U.S. History For Dummies by Steve Wiegand
U.S. History For Dummies by Steve Wiegand
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Like most Britons I suspect the majority of my knowledge of American history has been drawn from popular culture in the form of books, films and television but I was drawn to this Dummies guide with the hope that I could find out more and clarify the cloudy facts that I already held. The book has proved to be an incredibly easy read, partly because it is so interesting but also because it is presented in a very acceptable format. Although it could be read like a ‘normal’ book it is possible to dip-in to this one or even just look at particular sections. The only reservation I have is that it is aimed at an American audience so some of the references make less sense to me but I have enjoyed… Read more
TCP LED E14 Small Edison Screw 5 Watt LED Candle, &hellip by TCP
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have used this LED candle bulb to replace one of three old-style incandescent bulbs in a ceiling light. The old ones are marked as 40w and although the Amazon guide suggests that this is a replacement for 30w it is actually much brighter than the others so I think it is more likely to be a direct replacement for a 50w bulb. The light that it emits is a pleasant shade of white but it is less ‘yellow’ than older bulbs. That makes the room look less ‘cosy’ but also makes it far better to actually see what you are doing in there. On balance I prefer this new LED bulb, especially given the huge power savings it can deliver. Its physical size is very comparable to the traditional bulbs and it… Read more
Rapesco Stapler, Heavy Duty Stapler Zero-02 by Rapesco
5.0 out of 5 stars Solid and smart, 1 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
At 17.5cm long the Rapesco Zero-02 is a medium sized desk stapler with a very smart silver appearance. It looks very good sitting on my desk and is certainly smarter than a simple plastic bodied stapler, as well as performing very well. It is simple to use and reload and it is capable to fastening up to 20 sheets at once with very little effort. The fact that it can do it with standard staples is good but it can even be used with hard-wire staples which are thicker and stronger.

I like the attention to detail in the design of it and the fact that is has a rubberised base so that it doesn't slide around in use, and there is a small `window' underneath for identification purposes… Read more
