Do Design: Why beauty is key to everything (Do Books Book 13)
Do Design: Why beauty is key to everything (Do Books Book 13)
Price: £6.81

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 6 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There is nothing practical, or even that inspiring in this book unfortunately. If it was presented as an auto-biography of the author, then at least it'd be doing as it says on the tin and be the more authentic for that (albeit it is written in a series of proclamatic statements rather than telling a single story).

As it is it comes across as the personal musings of someone taking themselves too seriously, but within the cover of a more broadly appealing 'Do' title. Really disappointing after other 'Do' books.

The bumph makes it sound like a celebrity kiss and tell but it is much more substantial than that. A must for product managers particularly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really great, smallest Bluetooth headset, 25 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've had three Jawbone devices before (icon, era, era by Jawbone). The latter of those is a really nice looking, high quality feel device but, when paired with my iPhone, more often than not have a really poor quality call.

I was fed up with having to switch to the handsetand people asking if I was in the bathroom and having had a really great conference call device from Jabra, thought I'd give this a go.

It is absolutely fantastic. I have literally never had to switch to the handset due to the other party not being able to hear properly and I had to do that almost every other call with Era by Jawbone.

I really recommend this piece of kit.

4.0 out of 5 stars A really useful read. The book clearly lays out some 'no-brainer' ..., 4 July 2014

A really useful read.

The book clearly lays out some 'no-brainer' theses and concepts. Some of these may be commonsense, but Nir Eyal explains them in a way that makes total sense and lets one articulate the points made much better than would have been the case before reading the book.

Recommended to any tech start-up founders / CEOs.

Avoid this book. It's the most contrived, self-indulgent rubbish I've ever read, and I say that as an avid Clive Cussler fan (!).

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing mp3 player, 5 Dec. 2007
I bought this SanDisk mp3 player because I had a different model from SanDisk a couple of years ago and it was virtually bombproof. This one is a real disappointment. The build quality seems poor - it feels very inferior to a Samsung device I had (and lost) prior to this. The navigation is also often counterintuitive.

Avoid, as there are better players for this money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album, 6 Jun. 2006
This review is from: Foiled [Us Import] (Audio CD)
If you like Jimmy Eat World or even Rise Against, this is well worth a try for 'heartfelt' rock, AKA emo.
