Koochi Litestar Travel System (Brooklyn AM)
Koochi Litestar Travel System (Brooklyn AM)
Price: £450.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Super design, 22 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A fantastically designed bit of baby kit. The multi-purpose recline is excellent giving you the choice of angle or elevation in collaboration with the adjustable handle. I found the assembley a bit of a breeze and it feels safe and secure.
It runs really well, the wheels are sturdy and can be locked or braked via a foot height brake pedal with ease. The foot muff is nice and cosy and the whole ensemble has been designed to be warm and waterproof. I can't find anything to nit-pick about, even the colour and design look nicer when you have it up and running. It folds down and locks into position easily and is, for its size, very lightweight. An excellent item.

Rexel A4 Clearview Display Books - Blue (Pack of 5)

4.0 out of 5 stars Look good, 21 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Professional looking, practical display books with 24 transparent A4 pockets. The front of the book also has a transparent pocket so something displaying or representative of the contents can be placed inside to form the front cover. On the inner page are smaller pockets for discs and business cards which I'm non plussed about; I just wouldn't use them.
The outer cover is a flexible but tough plastic affair though the inner pockets are very thin. They're very useful though I think two or three would be about the most I'd need.

4.0 out of 5 stars Work fine, 21 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Very good. I don't think these are supposed to hold as much ink as the 'official' cartridges but the cost saving makes these worthwhile. They're in remanufactured ink cartridges which is a good thing and the ink/print quality seems fine to me on my, quite old now, Stylus DX6000.

1.0 out of 5 stars It does not work, 20 May 2015

Straight out of the box, batteries in and it doesn't work. Will update review if I manage to get a working model.


Essential Clinical Global Health: Includes Wiley E-Text (Essentials)
Essential Clinical Global Health: Includes Wiley E-Text (Essentials)
by Brett D. Nelson
Edition: Paperback
Price: £32.79

5.0 out of 5 stars Immensely informative, 19 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
An immense guide to global health in low and middle income countries. It is very striking reading this just how prevalent certain medical conditions are in certain regions of the world in comparison to the rest of the world such as the prevalence of global blindness in much of Africa and South East Asia.
A lot of the medical treatments are universal and little to no adjustment is required and this is reflected in the book such as Trauma care whereas Nursing care is very much geared towards the challenges of working in more arduous environments. There are many fascinating statistics and tables. The information is clearly laid out into sub sections and there are plenty of diagrams and some graphic photos to illustrate a particular condition or procedure. What comes across quite vividly also is just how preventable a lot of conditions are and just how strong the relationship between poverty and health are.

Engineer Your Own Success: 7 Key Elements to Creating an Extraordinary Engineering Career (IEEE PCS Professional Engineering Communication Series)

Edition: Paperback
Price: £24.26

4.0 out of 5 stars Some typos but a solid guide overall, 19 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is quite an interesting book to read. In fact you could replace the Engineering element in many sections for other professions and the advice and guidance would remain largely relevant. A lot of the book is about personal development, life and employability skills and there's a good chapter devoted to stress management.
I did notice though the occasional typo which whilst not particularly detrimental is a bit surprising; note the work-family balance table structuring your day which culminates in : 10pm Reflection/journaling/tea (then next) 10.30am bed. Just as one example easily picked out.
I think it's a recommended read if you're relatively new to the engineering profession and finding your way around but it's also a reasonably good lay persons read also.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real eye opener, 18 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a staggeringly great guide to Learning Disability Nursing. It covers the gammet of nursing along with a whole plethora of social factors from bullying to puberty, legislation including the Mentall Capacity Act and the Mental Health Act; Employment, Offenders, Personality Disorders; Advocay; Human Rights. It punches well above its weight.
It's brilliantly laid out, great diagrams and structured text and incredibly informative. What more it has to do to deserve five stars is beyond me. Anyone who works with vulnerable adults or children (or people with care and support needs as they are now to be known since the Care Act of April 2015) should obtain this book for their workplace. It should be much wider referred to.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference guide, 18 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These are just really great reference guides. The layout and presentation are fantastic. It's not that huge a book and covers a lot of conditions so depth wise it provides a good overview in way of clearly labelled diagrams, then structured text sections on key facts common signs, symptoms etc, Essentials of best practice and so on.
I wouldn't even say this was one of the best books in the series but the high standards are all there and its immensely accessable.


Essentials of Inorganic Chemistry: For Students of Pharmacy, Pharmaceutical Sciences and Medicinal Chemistry
Essentials of Inorganic Chemistry: For Students of Pharmacy, Pharmaceutical Sciences and Medicinal Chemistry
by Katja A. Strohfeldt
Edition: Paperback
Price: £34.95

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for complete novices but a wealth of information, 18 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Well laid out guide with lots of diagrams and equally lots of text. Presentation wise it would have been nice for certain aspects to have been colour coded but it's clear, the points made are quite sharp and to the point, there's tests although disappointingly I've forgotten so much of the chemistry I took at school much of it was beyond me.
I'd say if you have a rudimentary grasp of the subject matter then it's a reasonably accessible starting place.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Mortal Coil, 18 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A difficult subject matter tackled with subtlety, sensitivity and humour. Two teens both crushed by life find each other via a Suicide pair-up web site established to assist the suicidal in meeting a like minded soul to jointly 'meet their maker'
It's very nicely written. The character of Aysel in particular, the charismatic, intelligent but emotionally crippled young girl was very likeable and very realistically concieved in contrast to the over-riding negative portrayals, of young people in particular, who have ended it all. She meets with Roman, a young guy in turmoil and their relationship and growing fondness for each other is quite touching. The back stories are well drawn. It won't be a book for everyone, the narrative is of course a very emotive one, but it tells a developing involving story with an issue few writers would touch at it's central core so well done for that.
