Big Data: Using Smart Big Data, Analytics and Metrics to Make Better Decisions and Improve Performance
Big Data: Using Smart Big Data, Analytics and Metrics to Make Better Decisions and Improve Performance
by Bernard Marr
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.20

4.0 out of 5 stars Want to get to grips with Big Data? Start here!, 18 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Want to get to grips with Big Data? Start here. A fascinating, reasonably detailed but easy to absorb analysis of a central economic and societal element of the 21st century. Marr presents a book that works well on a number of levels. You can approach it as an interested layman and get plenty from it, but there's also enough in-depth consideration in it to satisfy those more deeply involved in dealing with Big Data. For a good, nuts and bolts grounding and exploration of the nature and applications of this issue, this is an excellent, contemporary point of reference.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good replacement cleansing brushes, 18 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Very good, proper branded brush replacements for Braun face brush. Top quality as would be expected and they fit into device easily and securely, the brushes soft but effective on your skin. Use moderately and you get 3 months minimum from each of these brushes so not bad value really- and they do work!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very comfortable, stretchy high quality running pants, 17 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Very comfortable, stretchy high quality running pants that fit comfortably. Highly serviceable too as they are easy to clean and reasonably water-resistant to boot. There's a handy zip key pocket at the back [which also holds a small phone/mp3 player] and the waist is well elasticated with a drawstring as well. The zipped legs also have secure zips whose tags snap down so they don't flap about, which is great and shows pretty much everything has been thought about in the pants design which I like. What impressed me most of all though I must say is the level of comfort- they are nicely lined and all round you get the feel of a good quality, well thought out product. Would definitely recommend.


The Essential Manager: How to Thrive in the Global Information Jungle
The Essential Manager: How to Thrive in the Global Information Jungle
by James W. Cortada
Edition: Paperback
Price: £23.50

4.0 out of 5 stars A topical, useful book for all levels of management, 17 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A concise, well presented book that doesn't lack in detail or constructive information and advice. There's so much information out there these days that too many people tend to confuse information with knowledge when there is, perhaps more than ever these days, a definite distinction between the two. This book is a handy, accessible and at times thought-provoking guide on how to navigate your way through the inherent problems of getting to the bottom of that distinction and using it in a managerial capacity to optimal effect.

All in all a very topical, useful book for all levels of management and in this ever changing commercial world, I found it an essential read for continuing professional development.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very handy little adapter, 15 April 2015
This is a very handy little adapter that I've had no problems with- had to at first fiddle around with the sound settings but no big deal. It connects my laptop to a projector from it's HDMI port and you can then watch HDMI quality video on the big screen, whether through a projector or directly into a TV. Nice range of colours to choose from too if that's your thing! Seems pretty good value too- from my experience would recommend [provided by manufacturer free of charge for a fair review].

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality and effective adapter/charging cable, 15 April 2015
Haven't had any problems with this adapter connecting my Android devices to the TV- works a treat in fact. The whole adapter set is very flexible and great quality for the price- connections are firm and positive and it's a good charging cable too, with a decent length. Well worth a look [provided free by manufacturer for a fair review].

A neat little adapter that's pretty flexible and had no problems with it's functionality. Found this handy for my laptop, plug it into the HDMI jack and the adapter takes the VGA video and audio connections securely and reliably. Nice adapter at a reasonable price too [supplied by manufacturer for a fair review].


Philips Satinelle Epilator HP6422/02 with Opti-start Cap with Massage Element
Philips Satinelle Epilator HP6422/02 with Opti-start Cap with Massage Element
Price: £27.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good, straightforward entry-level epiliator, 15 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Straightforward entry-level epilator which is great for basic use and perhaps seeing if you like the particular process before investing in more sophisticated models. It's corded, not battery powered but the cord is is a good length to allow ease of use. It's not just got a pretty design it's actually rather well ergonomically designed and is comfortable to hold and use on dry skin. Very good quality, branded epilator at the the 'value' end of the market.

4.0 out of 5 stars Affecting, accomplished take on depression, 13 April 2015
This review is from: Reasons to Stay Alive (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A very well written and sometimes very affecting [when you least expect] narrative on the experience of depression. Haig gives an artful but always deeply human perspective on the affliction and organised in a number of short, sharp chapters, it is ideal for reading from cover to cover and/or then dipping into as when you wish.

Essential Clinical Global Health: Includes Wiley E-Text (Essentials)
by Brett D. Nelson
Edition: Paperback
Price: £41.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A thoroughly comprehensive and very well presented handbook, 12 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
An indispensable book for students interested in global health issues and I would say very useful too for professional medical practitioners working either in developing countries or in this one dealing with people arriving here, who may be suffering ailments originating in those parts of the world. It's also even accessible enough- and I reckon highly useful- as a point of reference for aid workers in the developing world.

It's a thoroughly comprehensive and very well presented handbook with plenty of charts and graphics which covers all bases in it's text, without being unwieldy. It deals with a whole range of illnesses from child and sexual/reproductive health through infectious diseases to non-communicable ones such as repository and dermatological disorders.

It also, importantly, gives good information and guidance on cultural issues, local health systems and population-based guidelines to put the medical conditions in their proper context. Coupled with full access to a digital version of the book that has downloadable text, images and note taking facilities among other things, well if this is your field or one that interests you, you can't go far wrong with this edition.
