Letters from a Stoic: Seneca [Illustrated] by Lucius Annaeus  Seneca
Seneca's letters were all I'd hoped for, but the experience of reading them is utterly spoiled by this being a cheap, mechanically produced (by OCR) text. Apart from the litter of typos, some of which can lead to philosophical bafflement, there are some words superimposed on others and therefore unreadable. I do wish Amazon would do a quality check on text before uploading ebooks. At only 77p I'm hardly in a position to complain, but I happen to believe that even free books should be readable. Avoid this edition and spend a little more to get something more reliable.
Celtic Visions: Seership, Omens and Dreams of the &hellip by Caitlín Matthews
5.0 out of 5 stars Enlightening, 25 Feb 2014
A very rich, enlightening read full of wisdom and rare knowledge. I bought the book to understand Seership and Omens better and was rewarded far beyond my expectations.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ten wasted minutes, 25 Feb 2014
As it says on the cover, this book can be read in 10 minutes, which makes it overpriced. In 9 of those minutes, I learnt nothing new (and I know very little or I'd not have bought the book). In the last one minute, I read what I needed to know most - about hashtags - but was none the wiser. Very disappointing, and overpriced (in a market which sells big fat novels for about £3 that cost the authors years of work).
