5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent and engrossing memoir, 18 Aug. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent and engrossing memoir; as a current pilot I am astounded how they coped with unreliable radio communications, often no navigation aids other than a compass, terrible weather, enemy aircraft and flack being hurled by both sides! A brilliant book

5.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating record, 24 April 2017
A fascinating record of a caring and humble young man writing home (beautifully) to his family during the Second World War. It is a wonderful glimpse into a tragic and turbulent period of our history and provides and insight into the way of thinking in those days; very loyal and stoic in the face of great danger and sacrifice

Started slowly and quietly burned then couldn't put the book down and felt completely drawn in and captivated with the feisty Amy - an ingenious main character....can't wait for the final book 'Dog Ends'

5.0 out of 5 stars A life in flying, 13 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really enjoyed this book! P J Spivack has led a fascinating life in general and in the aviation world in particular. Some of his flying experiences are hair raising! As a pritae pilot I could really relate to the stories. He has an informative and easy style of writing. Recommended if you are interested in aircraft and flying (and also fly fishing!).

4.0 out of 5 stars Vodafone 155 Big Button Mobile, 30 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this phone for my elderly mother. It is the right size with large numbers and is reasonably straight forward to use, although the display/menu is not particularly clear or intiative to use. However, to date it has been reliable and the cradle for charging is excellent for elderly users


The Lightning Boys: True Tales from Pilots of the English Electric Lightning
The Lightning Boys: True Tales from Pilots of the English Electric Lightning
Price: £6.23

4.0 out of 5 stars Lightning stories, 30 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fascinating collection of stories about operating and flying the mighty English Electric Lightning in the RAF by the men who flew them. Many of the stories illustrate how marginal some of the flying was, given the huge performance and (to modern eyes) the limited navigation and radar systems available. I really enjoyed it!


The Chimp Paradox: The Mind Management Programme to Help You Achieve Success, Confidence and Happiness
The Chimp Paradox: The Mind Management Programme to Help You Achieve Success, Confidence and Happiness
by Prof Steve Peters
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.09

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent mind guide, 23 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found this guide enormously helpful. It is written in a style that made total sense to me and, if the techniques are good enough for Sir Chris Hoy, they must be worth a shot! It provides a step by step approach to understand how your mind works and to control the negative influences that we all have. A really useful book.


Faster Than The Sun: The Compelling Story of a Record-breaking Test Pilot
Faster Than The Sun: The Compelling Story of a Record-breaking Test Pilot
Price: £6.47

4.0 out of 5 stars Record Breaking Life, 12 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fascinating story, mainly about breaking the 1,000 mph speed record against unbelieveable intransigence and apathy of the government and ministry departments which resulted in a massive missed opportunity (taken up by the French with the Mirage range of fighters). As the book has subsequently been added to, it is slightly disjointed, but a thouroughly enjoyable read about the record attempt and the extraordinary life of Peter Twiss.
