How to Win at the Sport of Business: If I Can Do I&hellip by Mark Cuban
As the author clarifies at the very beginning this is not meant to be a "book" in an organic way; it is more a collection of autobiographical episodes, business tips and advice and a general outllok on the world of technology.
Yet, there is plenty to enjoy.
I would not have a huge interest in either business or technology and still found this book fascinating.
Cuban guides us through hilarious stunts from his youth, funny anectodes on the computer world's sacred monsters (B. Gates, M. Dell) and his initial achievements and setbacks as a start-up with a remarkable crispy style. Excellent reading.
The sections on advice for entreprenuers and general views on the… Read more
Who Dares, Runs: The Remarkable Story of a Man Who&hellip by Gerry Duffy
Reading this book was like downloading a new OS in my brain. A bit like running an old Windows 95 and suddendly upgrading to a XP professional edition or so.

"Comfort zones" are the main theme of Gerry's extraordinary adventure and in this book we follow him leaving many of them behind; not only, as you get from… Read more
Swift Set of 5 Dinosaur Cookie Cutters by Swift Collection
5.0 out of 5 stars Just what we wanted., 17 Dec 2013
We ordered them for our 2 y.o. birthday party and the product met our expectations fully. Despite a late order (my fault of course and I nearly had to face a divorce for this) the item was delivered to Ireland in less than a week in its nice package.
It wasn't the cheapest of its kind on Amazon but works perfectly. The children (3 and 4 y.o.) were well able to use them and the final results look deadly, although I have to admit that the stegosaurus does look a bit like a seagull as someone else wrote in another review.
Washing up and mould them back into shape was no problem either.
We only have had for two months now so I can't say much about the life span of these… Read more
