5.0 out of 5 stars All worries resolved!, 17 Mar 2014
After my negative review of an Anker USB 3.0 hub, the company very helpfully contacted me. As a result, I tried again - this time the unit seems to work perfectly. I assume that the previous one was faulty.

The device is an elegant and very effective complement to my MacBook. HIghly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good buy!, 22 Jan 2014
Thanks to other buyers for their recommendations.

The scale is reliable (i.e. consistently gives the same reading), and appears to be accurate. BUT you do have to bear in mind the warning in the instruction leaflet that it requires a hard surface. I assumed at first that the thin carpet in our bathroom would be OK - it's certainly hard if you lie down on it to do exercises! But my first measurements said I'd lost 20 kilos. I took the scale to the kitchen, and go my kilos back. So now the scale sits in the bathroom on a retired breadboard and all is well.

Strongly recommended - very easy to use, and to read.

Stage Blood

Like other reviewers, I found this fascinating, and at times very moving. The accounts of actual productions are vivid - and, I hoped, would be referenced in the illustrations.

Perhaps they are - but the Kindle edition doesn't include them. It includes a Table of Contents item called "Illustrations", which links to a single page giving the photo credits. But that's it - no illustrations!

Amazon, you've let the book down - how badly I don't know, because I haven't seen the illustrations...

Why didn't you warn me?
