Start the Car: The World According to Bumble
Start the Car: The World According to Bumble
Price: £5.49

3.0 out of 5 stars A little disappointing, 26 Jun. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bumble is very amusing on TV and currently the best cricket commentator.

Unfortunately this type of humour doesn't carry through a whole book. There is little evidence of a consistent theme and it is really just a series of short stories and anecdotes not patticularky well connected together.

He certInly has strong views which can be a little over the top at times.

Amos Decker is an unusual but well drawn character. This book is a well written and compelling read. Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Basic Guide to 7D, 6 Jun. 2015
This book was not the help I hoped it would be.

I have changed from a 50D to a 7D and the new camera has a huge range of extra features which I hoped the book would explain.

In reality (and I suppose the answer is in the title) the information is quite basic and while would be useful for someone moving from a point and shoot camera, is not really at the level I hoped.


Stress Management for Professionals
Stress Management for Professionals
by Roger Mellott
Edition: Audio Cassette

5.0 out of 5 stars Stress management., 4 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although this has been around for years it does for me exactly what the title says

This is my third set and I wore the first two out when I had a high stress job years ago.

Roger has a very practical approach and a very good way of delivering it

3.0 out of 5 stars Many problems, 17 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product has been a nightmare and it has taken me days to scan any slides.

Was delivered with the wrong plug to the power supply so I couldn't plug it in. To be fair an email to the supplier had one to me by the next day but not a great start.

Comes with Adobe Elements 12. Installation guide says that this is optional if you already have an alternative. as we already have Adobe Elements 13 then we opted to instal just the driver. Mistake as when this was done neither scanner or Adobe Elements 13 would work, even when we completely reloaded Adobe.

Deinstalled 13 and installed 12 and reinstalled the driver. Persistant connectivity problems. Poor manual suggests updating Firmware but doesn't tell you how to do it.

Eventually traced (after days of effort) to the USB cable socket in the back of the device which is very flaky.

Finally scanning slides but as we paid a bit more for what we thought was a quality product really should not have been this difficult.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating Read, 20 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Victoria: A Life (Kindle Edition)
Fascinating book if a bit dense in places. Difficult to keep track of some of the characters and their relationships.

Learnt a huge amount about Victoria and the Victorian era that IO didn't know before.

Bad Luck And Trouble (Jack Reacher, Book 11)
Bad Luck And Trouble (Jack Reacher, Book 11)
Price: £4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best, 15 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Reacher novels are always a great read but this is one of the best.

Plot moves at the speed of light with lots of twists and turns but better still there are glimpses into Reacher's past and he is allowed to consider his life style and choices in a way few of the other novels do.


The Hard Way (Jack Reacher, Book 10)
The Hard Way (Jack Reacher, Book 10)
Price: £4.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best, 1 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am a great fan of Lee Child and Jack Reacher but this is not the best example. The plot is a little flat and the move of the action to England produces some awful phrases and comments about England and the English. Not many of us think if the M25 as a Beltway !
