5.0 out of 5 stars Will give you an edge in business writing, 7 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I write by-lined pieces on my specialist legal area that are published in trade journals. This book is a great toolbox to have at your disposal. I have highlighted twenty or so passages that I have referred to time-and-time again when writing articles. Plus it's a good read - witty and informative.

5.0 out of 5 stars To the point, 18 Nov. 2014

5*s for readability: punchy, bullet-pointed and witty. Should see me through via a busy 23rd and 24th December. I'm buying the other one too: Do-ahead Dinners.

5.0 out of 5 stars To the point and essential, 1 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is like a secret weapon. No one tells you the how people are made partner and so this book is essential reading if you're aiming to join the partner club. I wish I'd read it right at the start of my career but it's a case of much better late then never. I know someone who relied heavily on the book in presenting a (successful) pitch for partnership. The book hits all the right buttons and rams home the point that being good at your job isn't enough: appreciating the market forces in your sector and having a strategy are key. For me, it could be more precisely titled "The secrets of how people make partnership" - the having a life bit is not the main focus but will give some food for thought.

5.0 out of 5 stars simple yet effective, 1 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very simple idea - you neatly fold a shirt around the plastic square, remove the square, put the shirt in the folder. Repeat. The shirt then arrives at work with minimal folds and looks crisp. I've also transported suit trousers at the same time. Ideal if a suit carrier is too bulky. The folder can be carried or just put in a 25L rucksack. I'm getting one for someone else now.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent for office, 24 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've lost my first one of these and am buying another without hesitation. It's perfect for the office where time and quality coffee are in scarce supply. I wouldn't use it at home as it does leave some floaty grit and also looks quite functional.


Starter For Ten
Starter For Ten
by David Nicholls
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Some great scenes but the whole doesn't hang together, 25 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Starter For Ten (Paperback)
The novel follows a hackneyed premise - working class lad takes on posh people at uni and has a crack at the top totty. It contains some, frankly, unbelievable plot twists and turns, interspersed with the very predictable. However, the main character's misadventures are compelling reading and I turned the pages as quickly as I could. Amongst it all, there are some absolute comedy gems. Probably best described as a farce with many laughs but little to take home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for running, 29 Sept. 2010

This is very lightweight, breathable and, dare I say it, fairly stylish. The peak is just the right length not to get in the way of your vision. It wicks well.

Just thought I'd add my one star to the chorus of disapproval. Annoyed I even clicked on the link to look at it.


Devil May Care (James Bond)
Devil May Care (James Bond)

4.0 out of 5 stars Fleming Pastiche, 29 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When reading this, you can imagine how Sebastian Faulks may have gone about writing it: thoroughly researching Fleming's style and the Bond signature details (cars, girls, bad guys, Russians, gadgets, cocktails, scrambled egg breakfasts etc) and then working out how to fit them all into a novel. The result is a great airport read that ends with a plot twist that probably surpasses Fleming. Up to the end, though, you can't help but notice moments that are thinly disguised copies of scenes from the originals and so, apart from the twist, it doesn't have a very original feel to it - but it does mean it has the ring of authenticity.

4.0 out of 5 stars V handy, 1 Aug. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Slik Compact Tripod (Camera)
Works well with my canon eos. Fits in a camera bag or back pocket. Much more convenient than a full size tripod , although of course you have to be creative with angles, walls etc
