This is the original method for shorthand as envisioned by Sir Isaac Pitman, it offers a complete introduction to shorthand in a very condensed format. This type of shorthand is beautiful to look at, but is ineffective as a study guide in the UK, as this form of shorthand can no longer be easily assessed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Victorian Afro-Noire, 24 July 2011
No apologies can be made for some of the terms used in this book, it almost reads like a politically incorrect episode on Radio 4, but the actual content is rich in expression. It gives an idea of how English was utilised as propaganda and Miller's prose has an essence of direction action.

The book address's race, gender and humanitarian issue's, it offers insight into the Great war from a single man's perspective.

Paranoid ~ Black Sabbath
Paranoid ~ Black Sabbath
This was the second album released by Black Sabbath in the early seventies. The song paranoid is truly amazing with Ozzy's voice cutting through you. Followed by 'Iron Man' and 'Electric Funeral' which have possibly the two most memerable guitar riffs ever. The drum solo on 'Rats Salad' is Bill Ward at his best. A truly great album. An album for anybody's collection.
