5.0 out of 5 stars An important read, 11 May 2014
I find it hard to describe this book as 'a good read'. Not because it is poorly written, or about a dull subject but simply because many of the things it describes happening every day to all kinds of people makes for a very harrowing read.

However, this book is an important read for both men and women. Men in particular need to understand what our female family and friends go through, and this book & the associated website are real eye-openers.

3.0 out of 5 stars good, but..., 1 Nov 2013
It's good, but it's a bit too similar to "Everything teachers know about the real world" and "What IT people know about social skills" for my liking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lastpass is great..., 9 Jun 2013
I've been a fan of Lastpass for ages and I was delighted to see it available for the Kindle fire when I finally got around to ugrading from a traditional kindle. It's a superb product for storing lots of passwords and other secure secrets and the implementation of it on the Kindle is pretty solid.

One thing I would say, and this isn't a problem with either the Kindle or Lastpass, is that data in a secure store like this is only as secure as the passwords/secrets you protect it with. Something to think about if you let others use your Kindle.
