1.0 out of 5 stars Not good value, 3 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Cuttings not presented in chronological or topical order - repetitions of material across the series. Many cuttings undated and unsourced. Some are virtually unreadable. All told, poor value for money

5.0 out of 5 stars On the road again, 3 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I guess most people have had best mates, but it is most unusual for anyone to produce a best mate autobiography, which is what Gypsy Dave Mills has done with 'Knights of the Road'. But, fear not, this is not a book about some guy who spent his time in the shadows of stardom, carrying the star's guitar and sharing his fortune. For Gypsy Dave is a great storyteller and a really interesting person in his own right. After reading these tales I felt like I was a mate of Gypsy's too, such is his warm approach to the reader. My only gripe is that he did not continue his tales a little longer, and profile the rest of the 1960's period. Others have noted, quite reasonably, that the text has loads of typos, and yes it could do with clearer punctuation too, but for the most part this only adds to the level of intimacy of Gypsy's tales.
Five stars

5.0 out of 5 stars Thought provoking, very thought provoking.., 28 Aug. 2015

This is more of everything other than sex, most of the time. That is not a criticism, it is a commendation, contained in this book is a wealth of interesting ideas, presented here in an open and friendly way. I have read reviews that suggest that the author(s) agenda gets in the way, but I don't share that opinion. For me the book suggests avenues of thought that I can explore at will, or not. That is a tremendous gift, since all too few books press that many buttons, giving that much food for thought. I suspect that many ideas presented in the book owe much to other writers but this book appears unique as it presents the ideas in a way that feels fun and fresh, rather than over-studious and dusty. Well done!!!

Some of the cards are good, a few are great, but most are fillers which are of no interest. Disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very nice book indeed, 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm so glad that Cynthia Humes' English translation of the Hindi book of 108 discourses of Shankaracharya Swami Brahamanand Saraswati is at last available to book readers. Cynthia prepared this translation many years ago yet due to one thng and another it was put to one side. Now those interested in this teacher, sometimes known as Guru Dev, have an alternate translation to read. I understand that there have been four translations made, my own, '108 Discourses', which also includes the original Devanagari text, Cynthia Humes', the translations L B Shriver commissioned and those hard to find translations by Muni. Let's hope that in the fullness of time, all four versions will sit side-by-side on the shelves of those who prize these teachings. Jai Guru Dev

5.0 out of 5 stars I am overjoyed with the NATPC 9 !!!!!, 6 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After putting in an order for this item, I read the mixed reviews & decided to cancel. However, on reflection, I decided to risk it & am I glad I did? I am overjoyed!!!! Fortunately, I can't compare with other tablets because I've never used another, but it connects easily to the internet, gives great Skype display and transmission, wonderful Youtube video playing & I can access emails and websites and .... well it looks like it has a host of features for when I have time on my hands to explore it further - brilliant deal! Great value for money at a fraction of the price of a branded tablet.
