5.0 out of 5 stars The lessons of history in this book are not just ..., 20 Feb. 2017
The lessons of history in this book are not just about man's inhumanity to man, which are of course, tragic. The build up in the thirties and the presentation of information to the German people and the wider world is a valuable lesson and reminder of how the delivery and subsequent acceptance of selected misinformation can impact a nation's destiny.

I try and listen to Craig's show each week. Unfortunately I didn't find this reflected the show and probably I won't listen to this very often at all.

3.0 out of 5 stars Detailed, Well Researched but difficult to follow, 22 July 2016
Half way through the audible version. It is hard going.

The research to provide the granular detail on commodity consumprion from different countries, the effect of empire and the life of the consumer citizen is worthy. Unfortunately I am finding this narrative across the ages to be difficult to follow as sentences and documented comparisons move across centuries and continents in close order, without, as amother reviewer highlights, any discernable, significant conclusions....to my ears. Will update when/if I get much further into Part 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars Replacement for HomeHub5, 22 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Purchased recently from Amazon to replace BT HomeHub5. I didn't see a review that addressed what I needed so this would be it

HH5 kept dropping randomly during gaming and generally, decided to buy my own. Followed instructions, connected dsl cable , added power, then pc. Changed name of router and password. PC Requested router credentials after self set up specifying UK and BT and isp. So far, rock solid. Recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars I am sad to give only 2 stars, 28 Sept. 2014
This review is from: More Fool Me (Kindle Edition)
I am sad to give only 2 stars. I saw the author at Bridgewater Hall last week and he was engaging. My book was obtained that evening. Like others the repetition of other books is staggering along with random stories and diary entries. It feels more like the fulfilment of a contract than a structured instalment of an autobiography. Some good bits but this should be better. By his own admission in the book, at least some was written hurriedly and not revised save for 'typos'. Perhaps more time, more structure and more content was needed. I guess however haphazard memories may be a result of the experiences upon which he has sold the book ie cocaine

I did not receive these ones shown. Inferior copies sent. Not worth sending them back.

Do not buy these on basis of picture and card

5.0 out of 5 stars CSL Windows 7 PC, 27 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Powerful gaming PC! CSL Speed H4718u (Core i7) incl. Windows 7 - computer system with Intel Core i7-3770 4x 3400 MHz, 1000GB SATA, 16GB DDR3 RAM, MSI Mainboard, GeForce GT 630 4096 MB, USB 3.0 - the ultimate quad core gaming PC!

There are conflicting reviews here. I may have got lucky, but I don't understand the negative reviews. Came next day with Amazon Prime, opened - yes German initially, which changes when you select English for Windows - no misalignment of components.

Absolutely brilliant. Plays Skyrim on ultra high graphics Total War Rome 2 without a problem. Surfing easy and swift.

Based on my experience, awesome pc, awesome performance. Not sure of longevity as only had it a few weeks. Would I buy again based on my experience, absolutely.

My taste in music is quite broad from heavy rock to jazz, however I can listen to this compilation anytime. Chuck Berry at Lancaster in particular is awesome. Absolutely superb.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Brilliant, 14 Jan. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is an eye opener. From Alexander, through Rome, the books covers a link between ancient, medieval and and modern history, the creation and destruction of an academic vision and we are the legacy of visionaries whose gift of learning designed 2000 years ago has helped us become what we are.

The basis of modern knowledge and history in one book. Hard going at times, but worth every effort.
