The Trouble With Women
The Trouble With Women
by Jacky Fleming
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £7.49

5.0 out of 5 stars really funny. You will never look at samplers in the ..., 5 May 2016
This review is from: The Trouble With Women (Hardcover)
I bought this for my Mum, my pal, myself... I'm on the lookout now for who else I can buy it for. I'm also trying to cultivate genius hair, having realised the folly of attempting a genius beard. Let me be plain, it's really, really funny. You will never look at samplers in the same way again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, delicate, full of love and precise observation, 21 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Until we actually get Sculptor's Daughter in English, and how I long for that, this is the next best thing. If you've only read the Moomin books you might wonder how adult fiction would sit with your pleasure of these. Would it jar? Not a bit of it. They are all one and the same, I couldn't imagine how that would be until I started reading her adult fiction. Each reflects a new light upon the other and the light is good. You realise, if you didn't before, how adult her Moomin books are and you likewise hear and feel the child's clarity of vision and pure but eccentric sense of truth chiming through the adult work. The short stories in the collection occupy a borderland between autobiography and fiction. Many stories are memorialised moments of her childhood. They are all utterly spellbinding, the world they describe is far away and long ago but is vivid, intense and compelling. it is a shock to come back to the surface and find yourself in the early 21st century.

I needed this to clamp a chair. It is much cheaper than the alternatives and did the job perfectly well. I think I might get another one.

Excellent. Searched a while for these. Will come back for more - but, hey, if they last as they should I won't need to!

1.0 out of 5 stars Flimsy, 6 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not really any use except for a small tea towel. We were going to chuck it but I gave it to our neighbour to use in his camper van and he was delighted.

5.0 out of 5 stars So hard to find, 6 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Proper, simple, modest, inexpensive, Bistro wine glasses. Heaven. And, unlike Ik** glasses they last for more than one use! Warning these are, compared to the boats we are offered as modern wine glasses, pretty small.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but only for deep fans, 6 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very detailed, methodical and organised work. It lays out all you could possibly want to know about Daoist philosophy and its relation medical theory. But I wonder if it is a slightly doomed project? The author has done a very thorough job of translating the often obscure, ambiguous and veiled original writings into a rational and ordered Western model. But you can't help wondering what has been lost and/or altered in the endeavour. Especially considering that; the original material was written in a totally different conceptual framework, is highly ambiguous and is open to very variable translational (I have read so many, very different versions of the Tao Te Ching, or is it Dao De Jing, each convinced of their own unique authenticity), and finally every act of translation is ultimately a personal viewpoint.
that being said it is a unique and interesting contribution to this field. Though if all can be explained so clearly and rationally you really do wonder what all those Zen monks are doing spending years meditating on a single verse.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but poor controls and documentation, 21 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Picture quality is good and sound also. However the controls are confusing. A window pops up every couple of minutes when using Skype, right in the middle of the screen, obscuring your callers video. I've not been able to turn it off. If you don't make a video call, ie just microphone then it seems to be down to chance whether the mike works or not. They seem over keen on getting you to use their own comms package when, of course, most people will want to use to for Skype.

3.0 out of 5 stars No match for mains powered security light, 30 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's fine, and the solar panel charges well, but really the light is pretty feeble and they've got a long way to go before they can rival mains powered security lights.

5.0 out of 5 stars don't be put off by macho title, 12 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I ignored this book for years thinking it would be full of macho posturing like so much of the guitar world. What a mistake it's brilliant. I've learnt more about technique in a couple of hours than in 10 years of playing. His warm up exercises are fantastic and I can't wait to start on tremolo, which I'm frankly rubbish at.
