I was not a great fan of oysters but I am certainly going to try some of these recipes. I loved the historical ones. Great writing and fun as well as information. Don really knows his food - and his Colchester!

John F. Kennedy: An Unfinished Life 1917-1963
Price: £9.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent coverage of JFK's life, 28 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Factual and balanced biography of Kennedy. Easy to read but covers all of the queried parts of his life - his health, his womanising, the influence of his father, and how effective he was as President. Great stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good balance on Trotsky, 28 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book is clear, well written. It is not written from wither an anti-communist or a Trotskyist position. Just information and evaluations from his contemporaries.

5.0 out of 5 stars Second volume of Kershaw's Hitler biog., 19 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant stuff, easy to read but Prof. Kershaw - the leading historian of this period - never departs from the good historians impartiality and balance.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Saturday Guardian, 19 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent product. Bargain at 99p. Perhaps lacking a little cutting edge in the summer month of August but great to get and to keep informed when on holiday

3.0 out of 5 stars Brideshead VHS 3 tape box set., 14 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great disappointment as the last tape finished before the end of the programme.
Luckily for me I had a charity shop purchased copy so was able to complete my viewing.
Very careless of the sellers!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Who started it? - the First World War., 9 April 2009
Excellently written and very readable account of the huge historiography of the First World War argument about "who started it?" Very important because Germany "got its retaliation in first" by claiming its innocence for both moral and economic reasons - the huge reparations the victorious Entente powers put on her. And it took Britain and France some time to realise that they had to respond even though they felt that there was no case that needed an answer. Immediate problems of believing they had nothing to respond to included American feeling that they should have stayed out and, indeed, that they would next time!
Excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Green and pleasant London open to all!, 16 Aug. 2007
This is an excellent publication especially for Londoners. Easy to follow instructions with clear link ups to public transport. Well signposted route so, along with this book, it is difficult to get lost! The sections are comfortable lengths for new walkers but the more experienced can easily do two or more at a time. This is a great way to see London's back yard that isn't seen from the road and appreciate how green the "greenest city in Europe" actually is.
