4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for IR students: 10 Years Ago, 3 Mar. 2012
This is a really excellent book, but is in dire need of an update and republish. Bearing in mind the ever-changing nature of International Relations, this book was written in 1998 and so it was published pre-9/11, pre-Afghanistan, pre-War on Terror, pre-Iraq, pre-Great Recession, pre-Obama and before the formation of several sovereign states in their current forms, including South Sudan, East Timor, Montenegro and Kosovo.

I realise that it is difficult to keep a published work of print up-to-date but 14 years old is way over the top. If Penguin could please update and reissue this book, its usefulness and intellectual value would increase five-fold, especially considering how much has happened in world events in the last 2 decades.

An ace book, but in serious need of repair!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Indescribable Medicine, 27 Feb. 2012
This review is from: A Monster Calls (Hardcover)
My mother passed away three years ago when I was 18 years old. She died after a long struggle against what turned out to be terminal cancer. When I recently read this book, I cried from chapter 1 to the last page, and that is a lot coming from a typically emotionally limited 21 year old guy. It felt like a weight had been lifted, because the intricate humanity outlined in this wonderful book showed me that what I and my family went through is shared by everyone who loses someone close to them and the horrible but necessary grieving process that comes with it. It is truly a masterpiece. It is real, compassionate, insightful and human and I recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone who has suffered the loss of a loved one. Whilst it is obviously not a full remedy, this book is an incredible kind of medicine for the disease of bereavement and I thank Patrick Ness and the memory of Siobhan Dowd for the lasting healing that this book has allowed me. Beautifully written and hauntingly illustrated it is a book I will remember always and urge you to experience it for yourself.

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Terrible, 29 Dec. 2011
Do not buy this product - it simply is not worth a penny.

This is the first review I have done after using Amazon for years, just because I feel so strongly about this useless piece of kit.

Don't be fooled by the (surprisingly reputable) Babyliss brand. This product is an absolute waste of time - I have spent the last hour and a half trying and failing to cut my hair with it. I have patches which have been shaved right off and parts which have hardly been touched. I look ridiculous and have had to use a normal shaver to get rid of all my hair and start again!

The unit is completely underpowered and the blades have a spin rate of about 5 RPM (Revolutions Per Millennium)...

Bloody awful product - listen to the reviews and do not part with your hard-earned cash.
