5.0 out of 5 stars Solid for the price, 23 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Best headphones I have had,

I have used the HD-280 Pro sennheisers and the ATH-M50 Audio technicas. Both for the price are superb quality and it would be hard to justify buying these but there is a noticable jump in quality, base and build quality.

Only 2 flaws which i feel is a sort of biggy which are:
-cushions are too small, should not have to spend £20 for XL cushions after spending £270 on them
-leakage of sound, leak tons more then the hd-280pro and the ath-m50 so although they are portable headphones, cant listen to them maxed out in public areas.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great...depending on your own state of mind, situation and vision in life., 1 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
4/5, it lost one star for the following:

-the writer only considers his own life and interpretation, sometimes other celebrities, but mainly his own and does not look at the situations that arise in other peoples lives and why they might act in certain ways.

-the book is too short, 160 pages of which many are 1 paragraph pages and blank on the next side, if condensed, would probably be less than a 100 pages.

-says some silly things like all critics who give a negative review are jealous and those who get cancer get it because there body is telling them to be there full potential, it the cancer goes once they start living happily.

the good points from the book:
-does what it says, a kick in the ass, more of a summary that you should read every so often to remind yourself where you might be slipping.
-book 1 of the 3 mini books inside is the strongest of all 3, very informative and shows you how you fall under the resistance

So overall, it is a great bit of work and when I put it down I really did enjoy it and it definitely does what it says, I just feel it could of cut down on some of the nonsense spoken and more of a description of what the writer was trying to say, instead of 1 paragraph chapters.

P.S, Many complained about the third book in which he talks about Angels and Muses, I actually think it was nicely written and related well to his own way of thinking although it was definitely the strangest part of the book but was a good interpretation on life.


Ogilvy on Advertising
Ogilvy on Advertising
by David Ogilvy
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for a beginner and for someone who is interested in the field., 28 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ogilvy on Advertising (Paperback)
Overall 5/5, some of the good aspects of the book:

-actual layout and presentation, beautiful with coloured pictures, clear layout and font
-quotes and research behind techniques
-feels like you are talking to Ogilvy himself in the manner of the wording
-covers all principles of advertising at that time

drawbacks:
-dated techniques (although Ogilvy states himself many times that its the principles to focus on, not the techniques)

So for someone interested in advertising, its like a history book but feels very contemporary, it of course does not include the tech book hence much of advertising is not included such as the internet, social media etc but for its time and the principles covered 5/5


The Hobbit
The Hobbit
by J. R. R. Tolkien
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.59

5.0 out of 5 stars great book, easy to read and fun, 10 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Hobbit (Paperback)
Great book, most say to read it before lord of the rings but I read it after, its definitely different to lord of the rings, with lord of the rings there is a lot more description, you may have a page/paragraph just describing the scenery or the feelings of a certain character whilst with the hobbit it is a lot more condensed and much quicker, although that being said a lot easier to read and ends up giving every reader a slightly different experience due to there imagination.

Overall great book even for adults, I can see how this book turned into 3 films instead of just the 1, although the book is like 1/5 to 2/5 the size of lord of the rings as i said due to there being so much being left to interpretation it can be expanded on very well.

Examples of this include (without spoilers), whenever there is a sudden attack or event in which it is described in as little as a paragraph but in actual events would cover 5,10,15 minutes of acting in a movie or how you would imagine the event to occur. Other examples include things like where it says in the book "and you know how it goes" or "they carried on with more stories for hours" and those sort of lines give you a real chance of imagining more then what the book says.


Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion

5.0 out of 5 stars first and probably best psychology/business book I have read, 2 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
great book, covers many different elements of psychology and it always has a "how to say no" section where you can act against the influences, there is always a section in each chapter showing how the influence is used in business.

Overall 5/5, one of the most insightful experiences out there for those who are interested in sales/management/advertising and in general customer interaction.

note that the "revised editions" I believe simply have testimonials from readers of the book from which they speak of how they have seen certain influences which is nice and down to earth.

5.0 out of 5 stars great book, 30 Dec. 2013

The Fellowship of the Ring
The Fellowship of the Ring
by J. R. R. Tolkien
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars epic book, 23 Dec. 2013
great book, watched the films first so was hesitant to read the books as I didnt think they would improve the story much but many chapters were not included in the films aswell as it simply expanding more on everything in the films.

Both the films and the books are a masterpiece of which both stand out in different ways. This book feels a lot more happier and more of a journey then the good vs evil vibe in the films but both are great.
