Consumer Behaviour
Consumer Behaviour
by Wayne D. Hoyer
Edition: Hardcover

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful
4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent overall textbook, 14 Mar. 2011
This review is from: Consumer Behaviour (Hardcover)
This is a very good consumer behaviour textbook that offers a good, simple, broad overview of many of the aspects of consumer behaviour.

I believe that this book is primarily aimed at beginners in the field, or at undergraduate students, as it doesn't offer a lot of depth on any of the subjects, but it more than makes up for this by offering simplified, easy to understand information, on such a vast array of subjects. Even in my doctoral study, I still turn to this book if I come across a new term or issue in the field for a simple explanation, before looking elsewhere for the depth.

I would highly recommend this book to all undergraduate students who are doing a Marketing or Consumer Behaviour major degree, and even to more advanced practitioners or students, who will gain a great deal from its simple, easy to understand style.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent little book, 14 Mar. 2011
This is a great little book that I purchased when I decided that I wanted to get into keeping a marine aquarium - it is definitely a good book for the beginner, and probably a good reference book for the more experienced hobbyist.

The book is well written with easy to understand language that won't confuse the inexperienced beginner. It is also well structured; it begins with basic equipment and aquarium setup, before moving onto introducing livestock etc. to your aquarium. The book also progresses in a logical way, listing fish and creatures generally in increasing difficulty of maintenance.

The book also provides sufficient depth on each fish's behaviour, temperament and typical characteristics etc. Further to this, it is illustrated with beautiful photographs that keep it interesting and helpful.

In conclusion, this little book is great value for money and has an excellent amount of information supported by a lot of brilliant photos and illustrations. In saying that, it is most likely aimed at beginners more than an experienced hobbyist, but I believe it is still sufficiently cheap that experienced hobbyists should purchase this as a quick reference book.


Grand Slam: How Ireland Achieved Rugby Greatness - in the Players' Own Words
Grand Slam: How Ireland Achieved Rugby Greatness - in the Players' Own Words

4.0 out of 5 stars Get this if you're a fan of Irish Rugby, 14 Mar. 2011
This is a very good book if you're a fan of Irish Rugby; it is essentially the story of their recent grand slam told through some excellent photographs and the players' own words.

This is a very easy read - not for real mental stimulation, but it is very enjoyable. The book's structure and writing style allows you to feel as though you really are experiencing the grand slam with the players, as it happens.

I would highly recommend this for all IRFU fans!

5.0 out of 5 stars Funniest I've seen in ages!, 14 Mar. 2011
This review is from: Hall Pass [DVD] [2011] (DVD)
This is a brilliant film with laugh out loud moments at every turn, stellar performances from all those involved, and a well written script with a lot of witty jokes and darkly funny moments.

The general premise of the film is that Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis, both obsessed with the opposite sex and how life could have been if they weren't tied down with marriage, are granted "hall passes" (a week off marriage) by their wives - who hope that the men will see that life really isn't any greener on the other side. Much hilarity ensues when the two completely normal, middle aged men attempt to inject some spice into their lives on their week off. An equally interesting twist is the enjoyment that the wives appear to gain from the week off themselves.

This is a comedy with some well thought out and clever jokes & funny situations. The performances of Wilson and Sudeikis are brilliant - wholly believable and hilarious. As are the performances of the supporting actresses and all of the cameo appearances also (Stephen Merchant et al)

This is a brilliant comedy; it will have you laughing out loud several times and you'll want to watch it again and again!

5.0 out of 5 stars More of Chubby at his brilliant best, 13 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Roy Chubby Brown is far and away my favourite stand up comic, and as usual he doesn't disappoint with this DVD.

This is more of Chubby at his crude, brilliant best. Perhaps the most endearing part of Chubby's act isn't his vulgar jokes; but rather the instant and hilarious put downs with which he silences his hecklers.

If you're a fan of Chubby, buy this DVD and you won't be disappointed. If you haven't heard any of Roy's material (and aren't easily offended) then give this DVD a go, and you too may find yourself in love with Britain's favourite blue comic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely brilliant sunglasses, 13 Mar. 2011
These sunglasses are absolutely excellent.

They come in a range of very attractive colours - particularly the iridium lenses (something I've always been fond of). The glasses are also a very good fit; fitting snugly around the nose and also wrap around the sides of the eyes too - something that is very important when driving.

Perhaps the most impressive aspect of these glasses is the way in which they filter out sunlight; unlike cheaper sunglasses that simply make everything darker, these sunglasses only appear to block out the bright glare of the sun - leaving the rest of your view uninhibited.

The only reason that these glasses don't receive a fifth star is because the rubber on the arms of the glasses can leave your ears feeling sensitive after prolonged use if they aren't worn at the correct angle. But an absolutely fantastic purchase nonetheless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another gem from Erich Krauss, 13 Mar. 2011
Erich Krauss has delivered yet another excellent, well structured and easily accessible book with Muay Thai Unleashed.

The book is very systematic and works from the ground up - beginning with developing the stance, through the fundamental strikes and movements of the art, and then onto more advanced moves and strikes.

The book has excellent instructions and many vivid pictures that make it as easy as is possible to follow.

This book definitely leans towards the beginner, but there are still a few gems to be had for more experienced practitioners and I would highly recommend this book to all interested practitioners of Muay Thai.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW!!!, 13 Mar. 2011
HD Wax is simply outstanding! There is no other way to put it.

At first the price appears a little excessive, but having used the wax roughly ten times and you still wouldn't notice that the (decently sized) tub is any lower than when it was brand new.

Give your car a good wash, chamois and polish before applying this wax. Take your time applying the wax with one of the two applicator sponges before buffing it off with the (excellent) included microfibre towel, and I promise that your car will keep beading water, and keep that just valeted deep shine for the next 6-8 weeks.

If you take pride in the appearance of your car, or even just like to protect it from the elements, buy this wax! It is an outstanding product and unbelievable value for money

4.0 out of 5 stars Like a clean car? Get this spray!, 13 Mar. 2011
This spray is absolutely excellent if you like to clean or valet your car - particularly useful for the really greasy bits like the engine or wheel arches.

The spray is fantastic! Simply spray it onto the area in question, leave it a moment or two, work it in with a brush, and spray away. You will be amazed with the amount of dirt, oil and grease that washes away. The spray is also excellent at cleaning door hinges etc. but always remember to give these a little spray with WD40 after.

The only reason it doesn't get five stars is due to the fact that it is a little pricey for something that is essentially a very good all purpose cleaner. But if you're serious about cleaning your car it is excellent value for money and is therefore a must buy.
