3.0 out of 5 stars Stick to the first book of the series., 13 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Rather a spin-off from the much better first book. OK for an afternoon. Doesn't make me want to bother with the third of the series.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't believe everything the ads say!, 15 Jun. 2015
I've had trusty old Henrys for the last umpteen years but thought I'd upgrade. Now thinking I've made a mistake:
*VERY heavy
*unwieldy on stairs - very short awkward hose
*emptying cylinder created a LOT of dust
*doesn't manoeuvre anything like as easily as the ads would have you believe
*Big downside - blockages. I picked up a wooden marble toy bit by accident and it took an hour and a half to figure out how the bits detached from each other (Dyson guide useless), how much force needed to be used and, even when using helpful youtube guides exactly which tabs were being referred to. I probably couldn't have dislodged the thing when I eventually found it, had I not happened to have a trombone cleaner in a drawer (like a mini flexible chimney sweeper brush - not a normal household item!)
*Noisy

On the plus side, it does pick up better than the Henry; but I think I may pass it on to my daughter and try something else.

Edit: Nov 2015. Having just put my back out hauling it upstairs I have passed it on to my daughter! Have invested in a great lightweight Miele instead. Would only recommend the Dyson if you have lots of carpet (it IS good at picking up dust; less so with e.g. bits of paper, hairgrips etc) all on one floor ( or a beefy weight-lifter man about the house)

4.0 out of 5 stars US biased, but some good stuff, 11 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A lot is familiar, but some good ideas. Some of it is wryly amusing in the UK - unless you live in Downton Abbey, how many UK homes have a kitchen AND Pantry AND Laundry Room AND formal dining room, to say nothing of garages, basements and attics and " Master Closets" (?Dressing rooms?) But overlooking that, and the fact that you won't have as many temporary places to leave boxes while you're filling them, it's a good book for thase who can't face an all-out onslaught.

Not an easy read, but very informative on an area largely ignored by relentlessly upbeat self-help books.

4.0 out of 5 stars Inspires reflection, 29 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good set of reflections (not sequential - some are re-issues of magazzine articles) on ageing; both sad and happy. Definitely NOT a "how to manage your finances" type book. I keep dipping into it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Useful, sturdy & good value NB downgraded on update, 13 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
capacious and heavy duty, collapses easily.
only misses 5* because the retaining clasps which keep it briefcase-shaped aren't particularly secure. Otherwise very useful for keeping in the back of the car in case of unexpected heavy purchases.
Update:the retaining pins which hold it together at the cornerss broke. Cantt even hold it together with duct tape as that wouldn't allow it to fold. Only good it you are moving sqare loads (eg books); not for bugy shopping bags. Down grade to 2*

3 stars refers to Kindle edition - this stalwart book is only really useful in print form. if you're studying Latin it's a must-have
