Such a poor kindle edition that I took a refund. The content looked good but was almost completely inaccessible.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost great, 18 July 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great value with some disappointments. I was expecting a step up from the HDX 7 but not so. Lower screen resolution, limited Alexa (no Spotify connection), no screen mirroring, more Amazon focused UI, SD storage only really useful for Amazon content, chunkier build. Nonetheless this is great value, does everything well and seems robust. This is my 7th Fire; no other have lasted more than a year of constant use.

Making a difference after wearing for 2-3 hours on bad back day. Quite bulky so not completely undetectable under clothing.

Edition: Hardcover
Price: £13.64

4.0 out of 5 stars Good addition, 9 Jan. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Fills a gap in the Churchill library. Very readable and full of information with which to challenge views of Churchill's influences and how he became the leader he did. No pre-reading required.


Ultratape HEAVY DUTY TAPE DISPENSER DESKTOP OFFICE TAPE HOLDER
Ultratape HEAVY DUTY TAPE DISPENSER DESKTOP OFFICE TAPE HOLDER
Offered by CKONE
Price: £3.55

3.0 out of 5 stars Reduce your Christmas stress, 9 Jan. 2017
Cheap and cheerful. This didn't have the build quality I was expecting but as very cheap. I reckon that, by the time I've wrapped next year's Christmas presents I will have saved the cost of this in otherwise wasted Sellotape. It has probably also prolonged my life by reducing the stress of finding the beginning of the Sellotape on the roll.


Becko Stainless Steel Garlic Press Solid Ginger Crusher with Cleaning Brush
Becko Stainless Steel Garlic Press Solid Ginger Crusher with Cleaning Brush
Offered by Eguo
Price: £23.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A step up, 9 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Produces a very consistent, defined crushed garlic. Although a wire brush for cleaning is included, it's easier to wash this out under a running tap than the more traditional designs. Still not worked out why the this is made in 3 parts, as it can be fiddly to get the garlic into the press - no doubt I'll work that out. In the meantime - a very robust product which does the job. Some users might miss the traditional addition of the olive stoner and will need to keep their old press handy.


The Business Blockchain: Promise, Practice, and Application of the Next Internet Technology
The Business Blockchain: Promise, Practice, and Application of the Next Internet Technology
by William Mougayar
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £15.70

3.0 out of 5 stars Tough but interesting, 9 Jan. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'm not a blockchain expert and found this confusing at times. It seems to be written the wrong way round, with the reason for considering the technology first, with plenty of zealous evangelism, followed by a gradually unfolding picture of what the technology can offer. I was hoping for a quick introduction, but ended up using plenty of other free internet resources to fill in gaps in my understanding.


The Egyptians: A Radical Story
The Egyptians: A Radical Story
by Jack Shenker
Edition: Paperback
Price: £15.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Guide to difficult territory, 28 Oct. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is not easy territory, so maps, timelines and charts are essential. Did any book ever have too many? Shenker's approach is clear and provides a good framework for the non-specialist. Plenty here for the generalist, hopefully encouraging further specialist reading.
