2.0 out of 5 stars Not a guide to the city; a random collection of articles - Not worth the high price, 10 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Apart from a half-decent selection of pictures, the book fails to deliver. It's not clear what the book intends to do. It's not guide to the city, not a history book, and neither a current affairs books. It's a collection of random articles on a variety of topics that try hard to cover many aspects of the life of the city. The "guide to to the city" part of the book is no more than a couple of pages at the end with only a few recommendations. For the little valuable content, the description of the book is hyped and the item is seriously over-priced. Not worth a buy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 12 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This series serves well as a quick review of some key moments in the developments of the US. However, it lacks depth and analysis. The series is overly dramatised and feels more like an item of propaganda than an account of historic events. All the views presented are of proud Americans and criticism is rare, if not absent. The episodes are peppered with minor detailed events that fill time for no obvious reason. It probably works as an introduction, especially for children, but not sufficient for curious adults.

All in all, the series is fine for free viewing on TV, but is not worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read, 21 April 2009
This is by far the best book I have read on education policy. It's a substantial review of policies from all over the world and draws practical lessons from various contexts. It is concise, well written, heavily backed by research and very insightful. It should be made compulsory reading for anyone in education management and policy.
