Professional Manager
Professional Manager
by Douglas McGregor
Edition: Hardcover

3.0 out of 5 stars very 1950s, written in the 60s., 19 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Professional Manager (Hardcover)
Largely disappointing book, especially in light of his other work. If more up-to-date and insightful material is desired, more meaningful for today's and tomorrow's managers, some (but not all) of Keith Grint's writings would seem a better starting point.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good for what it is....., 13 Feb. 2014

A concordance!

Good value, very clean, unmarked, and a tremendous assistance when doing original research into Bible topics and controversies.

1.0 out of 5 stars What a mix of stuff!, 13 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's all over the place, with myth mixed with tradition, some pseudo-science and some outright clangers. There is a bit of truth in it, but not that much.

Mildly amusing, if you have the time to read it all.


The Builders: How a Small Group of Property Developers Fuelled the Building Boom and Transformed Ireland
The Builders: How a Small Group of Property Developers Fuelled the Building Boom and Transformed Ireland
by Frank McDonald
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Memory lane!, 26 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I know quite a few of these characters, and the reality is much worse than that portrayed. Very few had or have any real knowledge of property development (in fact, it's frightening how little they do know), but when prices are rocketing, mistakes and blunders are covered by rising prices, and profits are assured. Any 'eejit' can make money in these circumstances, but what'll sort them out and reveal any with real ability is the current, and heightening, property collapse. It takes considerable ability to make money then. I doubt whether very many will.

5.0 out of 5 stars Decent map., 26 Mar. 2013

Does what is says on the tin...clear mapping, easily read, and pocket-sized. Covers most of Coventry, with the city centre well portrayed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could do better...., 22 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Inside Job [DVD] [2011] (DVD)
Bit simplistic, but the excruciating interviews with so-called regulators and top-level former Fed. members was very revealing. It's really a lot worse than Inside Job portrays it.


Spycatcher
Spycatcher
by Peter Wright
Edition: Mass Market Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Very instructive!, 22 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Spycatcher (Mass Market Paperback)
And so very like doing business in Britain in the latter part of the 20th-century and the first knockings of the 21st. The sophistication of technical remote surveillance isn't there, but the rest of it seems to be, in spades.

A genuine 'technical' page-turner, for a change.

Pity I had to go to the States to get it, though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 19 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Reykjavik: FBC.602 (Map)
Does whole of the capital, not just the tourist areas. Very easy to use, with places of interest clearly marked.

1.0 out of 5 stars Orher than....., completly boring!, 27 Aug. 2010
Other than the relatively small part about smart meters and their implications, this book is boring.

Dunlop DUN-19-G07 Freeze Gents Chronograph Watch

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this., 27 Aug. 2010
The strap broke within 20 minutes, when I was asleep! For a sports wristwatch, that is utterly unacceptable.

Do not but this Chinese-made misproduct.
