4.0 out of 5 stars Useful for phone or tablet., 20 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These headphones are effective and useful when utilised with my iphone and ipad. I have tried to use them with my iMac with less success. I have also used them with over-ear headphones rather than the in-ear ones supplied and found that they are just as effective. An excellent product within certain limits.

5.0 out of 5 stars The biography she deserved, 14 Feb. 2009
A hauntingly beautiful biography of the poet Wordsworth's sister that explores in detail her life with and without her brother. What truly impressed me was Frances Wilson's determination to avoid the easy post-Freudian claims to "incest" between the two siblings, while closely examining the true nature of their relationship in the context of its time.
Dorothy comes across as a woman equally as determined and original as William, without whom some of his greatest poems might never have emerged. Without belittling either of them, Wilson places the Wordsworths firmly in the events and thoughts of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, exploring their complex upbringing and the forces which held them together throughout most of their adult lives.
An excellent introduction to the study of Dorothy and, perhaps equally importantly, to a richer understanding of the poetry and person of William.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fill in the gaps in the tv programmes, 14 Feb. 2009
I bought this after a recent trip to Luxor - our second trip to Egypt in as many years - having immediately re-run the DVD of the Egypt series as soon as we returned.
While in Luxor I had read Joyce Tildsley's equally fascinating book about the "female pharaoh" Hatshepsut, which was thoroughly enjoyable, particularly after a visit to her temple on the west bank.
This "book of the series" was just as readable, and was helpful in filling in the gaps that are inevitable in a televised docu-drama. Tildsley makes the whole Egyptian experience come alive, with a written style that is light and yet sufficiently academic to provide a thorough grounding in the subject and its history.
I would recommend this as a read for anyone contemplating visiting, or who has recently visited, Egypt and would like to know more about the wonders of the past - ancient and modern - of that country. It would also be useful for those who may have seen the DVD series - those programmes and the haunting music echo in my mind even as I write this review!
