Guilty Gadgets  - Triple Car Charger Socket and U&hellip by Guilty Gadgets
3.0 out of 5 stars middling quality, 31 Mar 2014
the three main sockets are fine, the USB socket was defective. The company contacted me asking for a review, I pointed out the defect and asked them what they wanted to do about it; nothing heard since 26th January, and I'm not inclined to pursue the matter over such a low cost item.
Kenya: The Evolution of Independence by R.L. Collins
The author acknowledges from the outset that this is a work based upon other secondary sources rather than original research. It is no surprise then that there is not much new here, and the author seems to have been a little bit too dependent on a relatively narrow range of sources for each chapter. It is certainly not risible, but I can't see it competing very strongly against other works by professional historians.
No Need to Lie by Rolf Rainer Schmid
No Need to Lie by Rolf Rainer Schmid
Full disclosure from the outset: I know Rolf and like him very much. Back in the day I was a habitue of The Horseman, his wonderful restaurant at Karen, and I mourn its passing still. I remember Rolf beginning to write this book, and seeing some of the manuscript. This memoir covers Rolf's life from his really quite difficult childhood in post war Germany through to the present, with quite a bit of detail about his interesting work with the Kenya Police against thugs who had victimised his family. Plus a great deal more. Interesting in its own right as an autobiography, this book will be of great interest to all who know this fascinating man.
