Get Real, Get Gone: How to Become a Modern Sea Gypsy and Sail Away Forever
Get Real, Get Gone: How to Become a Modern Sea Gypsy and Sail Away Forever
Price: £5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Much better than childminding., 5 Jun. 2016
This came up as a recommendation in Kindle Unlimited, and to be honest when I saw that Tom Cunliffe had reviewed it I assumed it would be written as a high word count attempt with plain English a clear casualty. Then I also saw another review indicate the author had a chip on his shoulder. So under normal circumstances not for me, except it was a free read while I was left childminding for a weekend.
It didn't last the weekend because the sun was shining, the kids were out playing and I was able to thoroughly enjoy reading it without interruption. This is a very good book and my preconceptions were wrong, but I can also see how this book could irritate some sailors, as it kicks some sailing preconceptions, habits and beliefs out of the way as it quite firmly, but good humouredly, lists the ideas you should be paying more attention to without turning into a stale sailing manual. If you want to 'get real' and 'get gone' then taking a few pointers from someone who's actually doing it is a good start; but if you just want a good read then it does that too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worked well., 4 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Did the job easily and well. Can't comment on longevity as it's only had to do one kitchen but if that's all you need too then it should be fine. Used mine in a weak, old battery operated drill, it centred well and it was easy to control for depth. Can't find a reason not to give it five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Way better than expected., 4 Mar. 2016

I got these for the equivalent of £1 each and to be honest was expecting cheap tat that "would do" for what I needed. They are actually excellent quality and I expect they'll last for years. Can't fault them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job pretty well., 4 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I didn't buy this for wrist problems, but for my first fingers, which were showing signs of too many years hovering above buttons too sensitive to rest on. This has definitely eased them and seems to work, time will tell if it's temporary or not. On a more practical user note, the mouse works fine as a mouse; but I have to realistically bring it down to four stars for the precision, where it isn't as accurate if you're into art or similar, but maybe that'll come with more use.

Looks nothing like the photo. Simple on-off, no beam adjustment. Bright enough, cheap enough to not be too bothered, but not the item described.

5.0 out of 5 stars Calming and soothing, 19 Jan. 2016

I have only accessed the free program so far but find it both relaxing and yet energizing at the same time. A great way to start the day if I wake up too early.


The Writer & The Hero's Journey (The Easy Way to Write)
The Writer & The Hero's Journey (The Easy Way to Write)
Price: £2.29

3.0 out of 5 stars More for the hero reader than for the hero writer., 2 Jan. 2016
There is no doubting that use of the 'hero's journey' as a recommended story telling device is a good idea for any author of a standard plot, and initially I thought it would be a good read, but then it just seemed to run out of steam.
Rob pads the book out with his own back story - with himself as the example of a hard done by writer rising from suffering etc. and becoming his 'heroic' example to others - poorly woven with the use of the Tarot as a further inspirational writing device. For me the mixture becomes a bit too contrived but there is no doubting from the reviews I read before purchase that others enjoy this style. It just didn't work for me.

An excellent peeler that follows curves in fruit/veg well without having to "work" at it. But you can find it much cheaper than here!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great tool for the price., 7 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Length overall 435mm to give you an idea of toolbox fit, length to tang 300mm as you'd expect, cutting length about 260mm. Works really well on mild steel prior to welding, and getting rid of nicks on blades as others have noted. Good price, have just bought another as a "spare" because my original keeps getting borrowed. Only fault I can point out is that the handle is put on with a slight twist to the plane of the blade, but that actually works great with the way I hold it for different jobs. Handle is fine by the way, doesn't slip when sweaty and stays put on the tang.
