5.0 out of 5 stars The Cinnamon Buns are incredible, 10 Jun. 2016
Bought this after visiting the coffee shop in Marylebone several times. The Cinnamon Buns are incredible. The book is well written. The recipes are clear and detailed. I've only made a couple of things so far - look forward to trying them all out!

I cook most days so a good chef's knife is a must. This knife is about the right weight and with regular sharpening it stays very sharp which is essential!

Price: £10.63

2.0 out of 5 stars I dont use it any more, 17 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The problem with this item is that the capsules fall out of the railings. Also from a practical point of view I just realised it was much easier to keep the capsules in the boxes that nespresso sent them in.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best graduate micro text, 17 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Microeconomic Theory (Paperback)
I used this for studying masters and phd level micro theory classes and found it to be the best text book among the ones on offer. In particular the sections on adverse selection, moral hazard and mechanism design are very easy to follow with a good combination of diagrams, mathematical proofs and written explanations.

2.0 out of 5 stars Stopped working properly after 2 months, 27 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have other Anker products that I am really pleased with however had a bad experience with this one. I liked the fact that the cable doesn't twist and for a while it worked fine. However after about 2 months it only started charging my phone intermittently. Definitely not a problem with phone / charger since problem solved when using another cable.

Update: Anker sent a replacement free of charge that works fine.

Update: The replacement also stopped working after about a month! Perhaps I'm just unlucky since many ppl give this item positive reviews but I have opted for an alternative brand.

This Is Me: The Autobiography
This Is Me: The Autobiography

5.0 out of 5 stars Very humble and honest, 22 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I picked this book up after watching a recent interview with Ian Thorpe. I didn't know much about swimming or the man himself, but I was stuck by how differently he spoke when compared to other sports people who have this tendency to give robotic answers to journalists.

He describes swimming with real passion. He even makes the technical aspects of the sport seem interesting - I didn't realise there was so much to it!! He speaks with honesty about his success. He acknowledges that he really was a sensational swimmer, but he doesn't make the reader feel that he is better than any other person for this. The only other autobiography I have read by an Australian athlete is Greg Norman's book The Way of the Shark and he was disgustingly arrogant to the point I had to book the book down after reading through the first few chapters.

Ian also talks about his interests outside swimming which are very different to what you might expect from the typical alpha male athletes. He is a fan of the arts and fashion, he likes things that are `aesthetically pleasing'. But what really made this a great book is the way he explores his emotions, and his political and social opinions. He talks about racial disadvantage in Australia with real passion. He is brutally honest about the low points in his life and the emotional strain that celebrities and elite athletes have to endure.

All in all a very interesting read, even for someone who like me knows or has little interest in swimming.
