Excellent service. Very quick delivery. Incredibly well packaged. Think it's well worth the money. It's a very solid glass table that looks very elegant.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, easy reading, 20 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really interesting first novel and one that is well worth a read. A mad cap mix of characters and a fast pace style make the book an entertaining read. Some interesting observational humour and clever side swipes at everyday life offer something extra a little in style of Tom Sharpe. The basic murder mystery behind the plot is but a hook to hang the every day goings on around.

Well worth a read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Book but Price A Rip Off, 9 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
How on earth can the publishers justify 9.99 for the Kindle edition of this book when the paperback costs 5.99? This is madness. To carge £4 MORE for the electronic version than the physical smacks of explotation.

Come on sort it out.

The book itself carries on the journey started in book one at a pace and with lots of interesting twists and turns - a great read shame about the price :-(

3.0 out of 5 stars Good read, great man but light..., 4 Jun. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Dean is truley a great runner...totally awesome and perhaps one of the worlds great athletes. What he does and how he does it are amazing.

Parts of this book are very funny - taking up running again after a huge night out and running in his boxers and vest for 30 miles or so. Bits very moving - the charity relay run he did solo for the girl who needed a kidney transplant. Bit truely inspirational - how he overcomes obstacles and lets nothing stop him in reaching his amazing goals.

Enjoyed reading the book and would recommend it. But...two or three issues stop this being a great book for me. First its very light - read it over a couple of days, could have done with more depth in places. Second its a bit too "american" not not quite right but thats sort of self help look at me approach - did not quite feel real (although I know it is). Finally not sure if its a wise book to follow - pain is good is hardly a mantra that sounds recommendable.

So a good read but left me feeling a little light afterwards.


The Arrogance of Power: The Secret World of Richard Nixon

3.0 out of 5 stars Nixon haters will love this book - but lacks balance, 14 Dec. 2000
Summers central thesis appears to be that the downfall of Nixon was in fact simply the culmination of a lifetime of lies, deceit and intrigue. He interprets events throughout his life from this perspective and this is both the fascination of this book and its ultimate weakness.
Summers presents a through and well researched semi-chronological trip through Nixon's life and has uncovered a number of previously unreported incidents - for example the circumstances around Nixon's dramatic return to Washington to indict Hiss was fascinating. The author's style is easy and flows freely. Summers has meticulously cross referenced and noted sources but these do not interrupt the narrative. This book will provide a huge collection of anecdotes and information to support those who already believe that Nixon was in essence fundamentally corrupt.
Where the book and Summers missed an opportunity was in bringing to his research and thought an element of objectivity that would have added weight to his central argument. The constant and unrelenting analysis of every event in the most negative way calls into question the arrogance of the author rather than Nixon. Those who are prepared to give Nixon the benefit of at least some doubt may find the constant carping annoying.
Essentially you will either love or hate this book, but that will depend on your existing views of Nixon.
