Conversational Arabic Quick and Easy: Egyptian Dialect, Spoken Egyptian Arabic, Colloquial Arabic of Egypt

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 12 Mar. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Disappointing and carelessly written. In many places it gives the impression that it is the draft of the real book. The accompanying audio MP3 that can be downloaded is comical with a robot reading the words. While I can understand the usefulness of synthesised speech, I think it is totally inadequate for conveying the correct pronunciation (especially if the machine is poorly constructed).

5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect little manual, 12 Mar. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent, to the point, no nonsense pocket size handbook. You can easily pick and choose what you want from the book without having to read it from cover to cover. Contrary to similar sources that only claim to be, this is really Egyptian Arabic. If you can read Arabic you will be delighted that besides the phonetic transliteration of the words and sentences their Arabic writing is provided.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good mouse and very easy to set up, 27 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very good mouse and very easy to set up. I have bought and used three of the previous version. The previous version was beautifully compact and mercifully had only two buttons. It was for these features that I bought them. The present version unfortunately looses these features and falls in the category of dozens of similar mice.
It would have helped at least if a few lines of information were included to explain what the extra buttons are doing.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very cheap look., 11 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to give as a modest present but am too embarrassed to do so. It really looks and feels cheap and nasty with bubbles here and there and the silver decor smudged in places.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The product arrived punctually and worked fine. However what one is buying is not the product advertised in the accompanying video, where it is mentioned that irregular heart bit is signaled. The video refers to a model different from the one sold. The fact that a refund is available does mitigate the annoyance of wasting my time because somebody carelessly matched product and video.

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent cravat. I have bought a number of them, 21 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent cravat. I have bought a number of them. Why the three stars then? It is impossible to detach the label without destroying the cravat. In fact I have damaged one of the cravats trying to get rid of the label. Yet one has to get rid of it because it either irritates the skin or shows in an unsightly way. What is the point of attaching the label with such tenacity?

1.0 out of 5 stars DON'T BUY!!!!!, 10 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this 16 months ago and used very little because I could not make it as intended. I should have returned it but stupidly I did not. Recently I thought I would give it another try and tried to obtain a firmware or update download in case that would do the trick. Sumvision's site asked me to register the product. I sent all the detail two weeks ago and heard nothing. Their site has buttons to click for 'firmware' and 'update' but they are dead. The only button which is alive is 'specification'. In the small letters I realized they do not support products when they become one year old. Why buy their products, I wonder.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazingly well written book, 27 Oct. 2009
I am so pleased that, despite reading the previous review, I went on to buy the book. Few books are so well organized and self contained.

The authors explain with great clarity the procedure from beginning to end, without assuming any prior knowledge on the subject.

They make no secret that they predilect palladium printing and the book is interspersed with some impressive samples. But this does not mean that they concentrate exclusively on this particular technique. On the contrary it covers with meticulous detail all the associated indispensable steps from scanning, preparing the file in photoshop, making calibration curves, printing the digital negative on an inkjet printer down to the last steps of how to use the darkroom (or an improvised one) to make the final print.

I read and buy many books and I wish there were more like this one.
