Holocaust: A Jewish Survivor Testimony: The Truth of What Happened in Germany of World War 2
Holocaust: A Jewish Survivor Testimony: The Truth of What Happened in Germany of World War 2
by Dan Myers
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.35

1.0 out of 5 stars I would have given 0 stars if I could!, 28 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
No holocaust book I have read has less details about what happened to the author than this one.We only get to know her name and place of birth.Everything else,except generally used names like Auschwitz,is obscure and unnamed.Regina Weinkrantz [supposing that this is a real name] does not even reveal her tattoo number.This book is possibly a fraud.
I should have sent it back and I was disappointed to see that it has been printed by Amazon themselves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ingenious!, 20 April 2016
This review is from: Er ist wieder da (DVD)
Entertainment guaranteed for all who have a knowledge of Hitler and his era.At times very very funny,at other times very very serious.Not to be missed!

2.0 out of 5 stars Frustrated by the bad sound, 30 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Surfing In San Jose (Audio CD)
I was so disappointed by the sound on this cd that I will never play it again.Joe's guitar sound is no good and the general quality of the recording is worse than average.I should have known as this is not a SONY music issue [someone owned that old 88 tape and tried to make some money].Just for Satriani collectors who want to own everything by him.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed by the 5.1 mix, 24 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Beatles 1 (Audio CD)
The 3 stars are for the non-existent 5.1 mix on the dvd.
I was expecting something even better than the LOVE 5.1 disc.Alas,what comes out of the rear speakers is barely audible and what's even worse,it is not different from what you get from the front speakers.In fact the only song which has a 5.1 feel [the drums come from behind] is LADY MADONNA.When you change to 2channel stereo there's a lack of ambience/atmosphere which shows that they have indeed worked for a 5.1 mix,however unsuccessfully!
I couldn't believe Giles Martin did this kind of thing.My first reaction was that the fanfare about the 5.1 mix was a company hoax to sell more.
I got so angry that I decided to send back this cd/dvd.However I cooled a bit when I heard the crystal clear stereo mix.And of course the Beatles videos are very good to have all on one disc.
So,Beatles fans,if you go mostly for the 5.1 mix [just as I did], forget it,for your own sake.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too expensive for Sastriani fans, 14 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
CAUTION: the 3 stars are only for the sound on this remaster.The master's music is beyond rating with stars.

If you have already owned all these discs as a true Satriani fan and only want an improvement of sound than please think it over.
My evaluation of these remasters using equipment just short of hi end.

NOT OF THIS EARTH there is an 80% improvement in sound.
SURFING WITH THE ALIEN compared to the 1999 remaster there is a 20% improvement.Compared to the remaster which included a live dvd of Joe [2 disc package] it is worse [less dynamic and detailed,only the bass is a bit better].
FLYING IN A BLUE DREAM there is a 20% improvement.
THE EXTREMIST there is a 20% improvement.
TIME MACHINE there is a 30% improvement.
JOE SATRIANI there is a 5-10% improvement.

From here on there is an ugly surprise.
ALL the rest of the albums sound worse than the original discs!You read well.They are audibly inferior in sound,dynamics and clarity.

Personally, I think they shouldn't have bothered remastering the discs past TIME MACHINE,except if they are deaf,which I honestly doubt.
Of course there's always the extra disc which is wonderful.

2.0 out of 5 stars Love it or hate it?, 23 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When I finished watching the whole series I started to doubt myself.How on earth have so many people here on Amazon found this series excellent?Am I the one who has the problem?
But better start from the basics.Not even on the dvd is there any detailed information about what is included on the discs,so here are the contents along with a brief [personal] evaluation
SEASON 1 [2 discs]
Disc 1
China--- [Pilkington supposedly goes to the Great Wall but has to pass through many irrelevant situations before reaching there and staying for 5 minutes [on the dvd].Acceptable.
India--- [this is one of the trips which was worth its expenses and your viewing.It takes you to places and situations away from the tourist attractions,except of course the Taj Mahal in the end]
Jordan,Petra--- [it is good,in fact very good if you compare it with the rest of the series]
Mexico,Chichen Itza---[a flop,no further comments]
Disc 2
Egypt,the Pyramids---[it's ok,it could be lots better]
Rio,the Christ statue---[too long until you get to the Christ Redeemer statue in the final minutes]
Peru,Macchu Picchu---[please no!he didn't even get there!]
Review---Ricky Gervais,St.Merchant and Pilkington discuss the above journeys amid doubtful jokes.
Overall comment:Why on earth should one have to watch frequent and interminable phone conversations between Pilkington and the producers instead of seeing what Pilkington had come to see,escapes me!
Pilkington's comments are ok,even interesting, but they last long,in fact why would Sky send Pilkington to the 4 corners of the earth just to show the audience his grievances and complaints without showing [adequately,at least]the places they have sent him to see,escapes me!

SEASON 2 [2 discs]
Disc 1
Vanuatu,on a desert island---much ado about nothing!
Transiberian railway---oh ,what pictures and things they could have shown on this one.The whole journey in vain!
Australia,swimming with sharks---not worth your viewing time.
Alaska,Barrow,watching the whales---too long and tedious except the scenes where they walk waist deep in the snow.
Disc 2
S.Africa,Uganda---to see the gorillas,which he manages to do in the last minutes and this is the only interesting moment of this episode.
Route 66--- skip it at any cost!
Tokyo---some interest concerning the <cell> hotel and the very expensive fish which no European can even smell.
Review--- something similar to the review of Season 1
Overall comment: same as for Season 1

SEASON 3 [1 disc]
[This time they gave Pilkington a mate-Warwick Davis..which does not improve the situation]
Venice--worth watching but always sad with irrelevant choices.Why on earth had they to come to Venice to try a jet machine [James Bond gadget]for 10 episode minutes,escapes me!
India---more irrelevant choices [play in a Bollywood film.Deplorable]but worth for the last 7-10 minutes when you get to see the Spider sisters [this you will have to see to believe!]
China---they,among others,have them dressed in panda costumes to watch pandas on the wild!!
Overall comments:the worst of the Seasons.Only worth for the Spider sisters in India.

Is this series a <love it or hate it> affair?For me personally it was <hate it>.Frankly ,I would not advise anybody to buy it just to see if he's going to love it or hate it!

The Perfect Nazi: Uncovering My SS Grandfather's Secret Past and How Hitler Seduced a Generation

2.0 out of 5 stars Lack of real material, 14 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Davidson writes well but he has not much to write about.You cannot presume to write a 350 page book about a person [and a relative at that],having scant information about him.The potential buyer is interested in the personal story promised to him by the title etc,not in the general history of the 3rd Reich.
The relevant story in this book could be condensed in 15 pages or even less!
Real researchers and period aficionados stay away!

5.0 out of 5 stars Real guitarist!, 19 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This disc by Willie Logan is a true masterpiece of blues guitar with Jeff Beck rock touches.The cover songs are all excellent and a guitarist's paradise, with, on top, THE HOUSE OF THE RISING SUN, whose guitar treatment is truly awesome.There are several Logan compositions also very good by themselves.Do yourself a favor electric guitar fans and buy this cd at once!

5.0 out of 5 stars A little gem, 7 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Trill It Like It Was (Audio CD)
This cd is a surprise!For those who are constantly searching for different treatments of their favourite songs this is a must.The songs are treated in the style of the 20s and 30s music with excellent vocals and harmonies and very good arrangements.Try it,the price is inviting.
