3.0 out of 5 stars Grommett is too stiff, 20 Feb 2014
The grommet holding the lead is too stiff. It is meant to protect the lead from bending and cracking. Being too stiff it does this poorly. Otherwise it seems fine.

I have not had it long, so I do not know how long it will last. I note at least one other reviewer had experienced a problem with the grommet (called sheath).

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of money, 18 Feb 2014
I've had two. The first lasted a couple of months before working randomly. The second lasted about 2 weeks. The problem seems to be the cord is simply slipped into a hole in the body and inevitably works loose as the mouse is used.

ALWAYS check the mouse has a rubber grommet to hold the cord in place (unless it is cordless!).

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 30 Jan 2014
I'm an engineer by original training (B.Sc. Mech. Eng), a long time ago.

In areas where I had good prior knowledge I found the explanations lacking. It may have some good sections but I found it VERY disappointing. I'm glad took the cheap option of Kindle.

There are areas where I do not have prior knowledge (I haven't read them all yet). I don't feel hopeful I will get much from this book. If I do, I'll come back and edit this review.
