1.0 out of 5 stars Very poorly designed., 1 July 2016
The angle of the blade means you have to hold the handle at a very strange angle to get the blade to hit the grass etc. Actaully it is quite dangerous as the only effective way to cut is to swing the blade towards yourself.

The Rules: The Way of the Cycling Disciple
The Rules: The Way of the Cycling Disciple
by Frank Strack
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it!, 26 Feb. 2014
Very tongue in cheek and a light hearted approach to the sport - great for a present for a cyclist or TDF fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for any student, 15 Feb. 2008
I agree completely with the other two comments. This is a truly excellent little device. Small enough to fit in any pocket, yet contains the contents of a book to big for any bag!
I am currently undertaking an MA and the way defining words is so easy to go about, not only does your vocabulary increase, but your understanding of the work increases too.
I do not know how I could live without this now, £60 may seem like a lot, but it is an investment in your future, don't delay buying this!
Here are a few of the features worth praising:
1) Large screen, easy to read long definitions.
2) quick view, allows you to preview all of the definitions available
3) Super jump, jumps to any word within the definition
4) ITS THE FULL OED AND THESAURUS IN A DEVICE THAT FITS IN YOUR PALM!!!!!
4) No need to exit the current definition to search again, simply start typing an it starts a new search.
5) When typing a word it automatically brings up a list of words that begin with the letters you have typed.

Seriously worth the money, you will not be disappointed!

Tricks Of The Mind
Tricks Of The Mind
by Derren Brown
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.99

2.0 out of 5 stars 10 Needles is a haystack, 11 Feb. 2008
This review is from: Tricks Of The Mind (Paperback)
Firstly, some of the points that Derren makes are really interesting, and I agree with the other reviews when they say that it offers a valuable insight into a hidden world.

My problem is that it is so badly written it is very hard to read. Most of the time Derren fills in pages upon pages telling an anecdote, slightly boring. And the reason for this comes out around half way through. He tells how his editor/publisher wanted him to write a self help book, but Derren did not want to, he wanted something more comprehensive. The problem is that Derren has spoiled the valuable information by burying them in boring anecdotes to up the word count.

If you can skim read/speed read then this will help you get to the 'meat' of the book. There is an excellent bibliography at the end which is really useful and overall the book is not that bad, it just doesn't flow!

My Idea of Fun
My Idea of Fun

Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars Magniloquent, 2 Mar. 2007
This review is from: My Idea of Fun (Paperback)
This has been my first, perhaps not last, of Will Self's writing. The story is moderate, nothing to bite into really, but where the story fails the language begins. Forget that the exempalary use of language slows the pace of reading, but treat is as a learning exercise, my vocabulary inreased ten-fold from reading this, to which no other book can compare.

If your interested in a fast paced gripping story, dismiss this. If you want a magniloquent read that will leave you with 100 new words in your vocabulary, choose this!
