Quite a difficult read. The illustrations are all hand drawn; they are often unclear. Introduces some interesting concepts.

5.0 out of 5 stars What's on the light bulb? Ask an expert., 5 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A compelling read. Using the same, clear examples throughout the book helped in following the argument. There's plenty of material to make you sound really intelligent in conversation on, for example, BP oil spills or media coverage of climate change.

If you've ever been in a conversation where someone with no relevant qualifications seems to have all the answers, you will enjoy this book. "Information assymetries" is an expression I will take away and use.

Other books cover "digital age" specifics better, but for an introduction to the issues and some expert analysis of current situations, this is excellent.

Taking Power Back: Putting People in Charge of Politics

4.0 out of 5 stars Strengthening democracy, 5 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I found this fascinating for its insights into the history of city government. This is not a perspective of history which gets much attention, although it should be at the heart of democratic debate. Short on solutions but strong on analysis. There are plenty of people where I live in Sheffield who have a great sense of commitment to maintaining "commons". The huge growth of the sharing economy should help this attitude grow into wider acceptance and across other areas of society. I was relieved that the solution offered was not the simplistic one of "power to the people". It's more subtle than that, but we are in danger of underestimating the difference that could be made in society by getting people engaged as stakeholders / shareholders.

4.0 out of 5 stars Invisible magic, 5 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Hope my daughter doesn't read this. She certainly looks a lot better since using this product. You can't tell it's there, because it's "nude" but it's doing its "magique". Seems to be lasting forever, but then she is only small.

Very bright light but does get quite warm in a short time. It does what I wanted, which is to make my cheap Asus laptop feel like a Macbook.


Getting a Coding Job For Dummies
Getting a Coding Job For Dummies
by Nikhil Abraham
Edition: Paperback
Price: £17.94

4.0 out of 5 stars Coding's not for me - but this is helping me understand the coders, 22 Dec. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Not sure coding is the career change for me, and this book has helped me see that. There is plenty of good advice about choosing a career and ways of fitting work into your lifestyle, even if you're not thinking of a coding job. This is pretty non-technical but well worth studying. It will probably help m understand something about what motivates people who are doing the coding on projects I'm delivering.

Obviously I'm not using this, so sorry to disappoint some reviewers.

My daughter loves this - a real quality product. She looks better than ever.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good reading light, 22 Dec. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Fits perfectly into the lamp and provides a good white light. Very convenient that it produces no heat from the glass part of the bulb - that could stop my grand-daughter from burning herself. Good enough to read by without flooding the room with light.

1.0 out of 5 stars Expensive mistake, 19 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Does what it claims, but... Not convinced by the design of the plastic hinge. Not surprised when both devices I ordered brie at this point. One completely died after the 2nd recharge. All my attempts to contact the supplier have failed. The software is so basic it serves no real purpose. By a cheaper pedometer if you need an incentive to get your 10k steps or your money for a Fitbit.
