Antelope Conservation: From Diagnosis to Action (Conservation Science and Practice)
Antelope Conservation: From Diagnosis to Action (Conservation Science and Practice)
by Jakob Bro-Jorgensen
Edition: Paperback
Price: £40.13

5.0 out of 5 stars A scholarly work and a fascinating read, 24 May 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a scholarly work, and I suspect that you'll know if you need it.

However, I found it a most interesting read. The extensive referencing will allow the academic or researcher plenty of further reading.

But, for me, it was learning about the problems and exactly what the solutions for antelope conservation is all about that I found genuinely fascinating, and in this respect the book is perfectly accessible to a lay-reader like me.

I suppose the price tag is because of its limited print-run and the fact that a lot of work has gone into the research.

A fascinating read.


Philip's Big Road Atlas Britain and Ireland 2018: (Spiral binding) (Philips Road Atlas)
Philip's Big Road Atlas Britain and Ireland 2018: (Spiral binding) (Philips Road Atlas)
Price: £11.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Road Atlas, 22 May 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Philip's atlases and maps are well known, and their products are superb. This being no exception.

Is one is 3 miles to 1 inch.

There are pages about motorway service areas and restricted motorway junctions, but my favourite double-spread was one devoted to Mobile Layby Cafés from the atlas's own On The Road correspondent, comparing Butty Vans with Motorway Service, and there's a review of what to think when grabbing a bite when on the road. It's a bit of fun.

Of course, the main meat if this are the road maps, which are superb. 98 clear pages of road maps, fifteen great Urban Approaches, and 13 large Town Plans.

The great thing about large maps is that you can see things slightly away from where you're going, and they make exploring much better.

The price of this is superb.

A great atlas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb well-made cable, 17 May 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These Belkin cables are terrific. They are very strong, and you feel that the connectors will be very secure, unlike a lot of other cables that come with devices.

And it's a great length! So good for connecting devices across or underneath a desk: the length allows plenty of placement options.

I would highly recommend Belkin cables, certainly over other brands.


Skin Doctors Instant Facelift 30 ml

Price: £13.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the box, 11 May 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Well, this has worked somewhat for me.

I applied, felt a tightening of the skin, and saw a visible wholesome lift, so I can say that this does work well

The effect seems to last for about 6 hours. Whether the effect can be more long-term with persistent and frequent use remains to be seen, but I have hope, as it'd be nice to lose a few wrinkles.


RHS Great British Village Show: What goes on behind the scenes and how to be a prize-winner
RHS Great British Village Show: What goes on behind the scenes and how to be a prize-winner
by Thane Prince
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £9.49

5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely book, 10 May 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a lovely, enjoyable read, beautifully produced.

It is full of general tips-and-tricks about how to get on with a village show. I've been to many a show, and recognize now the tricks-of-the-trade as described here. They all just make for a more enjoyable and worthwhile time.

The sections of the book are:
Grow to Show Fruit
Grow to Show Vegetables
Grow to Show Flowers
Homecraft Bake and Preserve

What you have here is a beautifully designed and somewhat fun book, that is great for offering up suggestions and talking-points, and it looks fine on the coffee table, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb. Great sound, great battery, 10 May 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These are terrific. Period.

A superb set of in-ear headphones, with great sound and great battery life.

As other reviews have noted, there has been a faulty batch. A helpful note on these from Optima states
"As you may have seen [...] we received a faulty batch of earphones at the start of the year. We recalled the unsold units [...] [and] we are working hard to ensure all customers with defective products are refunded or have them repaired."

I say to those with faulty units: do get in touch with Optima, as I am sure they'll sort out your problems.

For me, these are great. Incredibly lightweight and comfortable, and they produce a lovely sound.

Superb.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really lovely, 5 May 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
For the price, this is a beautifully elegant lady's watch.

The presentation case is large and padded, and immediately heralds something excellent. The cover is designed using the trademark Helvetica typeface.

Opening the box reveals the watch, the dial about the size of a 2-pence-piece.

The strap is very clean with its lines, and it sits beautifully on the wrist. The dial is easy to read and its apparent simplicity is all the better for being just so.

Behind a panel in the box are the instructions and guarantee booklet.

It is very elegant, and would make a lovely gift.

Terrific. And the brightness is excellent. These work incredibly well, a lot better than rivals' offerings.

The light quality is beautiful, too.

And, the build quality is terrific.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent denim jeans, 1 May 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
An absolutely fine pair of denim jeans. What's not to like. They fit well, the size being exactly as expected, and they do look very stylish too.

I am very happy with these. And the price is surely an advantage.

Best to do a first wash cold inside out to get rid of excess blue that might otherwise rub off onto other fabrics; true of all denim.
