Sustainable Refurbishment
Sustainable Refurbishment
by Sunil Shah
Edition: Paperback
Price: £60.50

5.0 out of 5 stars Project Buyers- read this book!, 17 Nov. 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As Project Buyer in the Facilities Management and Construction industry- so far this book has been very useful. I do read a few pages every day and I have learnt lots about making sure the projects I work on do include energy efficient product, are sustainable and provide the best profit to the Client: Sutainability, energy saving, efficiency of the processes. I still need to read a bit more, but so far so good. You can select subject and read a paragraph on how to improve your practice. Must have for FM specialist/ refurbishment managers and buyers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good shoes for indoor sports, 17 Nov. 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I purchased those shoes for my indoor sports and gym. They are comfortable while doing running, fitness classes as well as my zumba classes. A little minus would be the weight- a bit heavy. The design is simple black and silver, nothing fancy nor catching the eye. Surely they already replace the old trainees I used for 3 years for all indoor activities.

Edition: Audio CD

4.0 out of 5 stars Sing and dance the alphabet, 23 Oct. 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
ABC LearnYour Alphabet with Songs and Rhymes is a fun CD for small children at the stage of pre-school. Good songs are accompanying each letter. Some rhythms are already known by children and it's easy for them to repeate the letters and dance with the music at the same time.

1.0 out of 5 stars Looks nice on the outside, 17 Oct. 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The book looks really nice on the outside, glossy paper, colourful etc... As for the inside, it just feels like a really quick copy and paste stolen from their website. Without anyone proof reading it either.
There are plenty of mistakes and yes, it does feel cheap when you read. Like some books I read from Blogger earlier. They tend to put the same amount of work in a book than in a Blog Post, which is quite different in terms of research and copy proof.

For a book to learn a technical skills, this is a bit of a no/no. Pass your way you have plenty of other books to learn about Jquery out there.


Thinking, Fast and Slow
Thinking, Fast and Slow
by Daniel Kahneman
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.69

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy read and interesting., 17 Oct. 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is inline with the Malcolm Gladwell type of Books. You read some interesting things about how we are working as humans, it does not go much in depth, but if it's the first book you read on how your brain work etc... then this is definitely a good read.
This is not what you read if you want to write your dissertation, it's more this type of book you read here and there, learn some stuff (than you can brag about with your friends ;-)).
I enjoyed reading it, I did read other book on the topic, and I can think of Pragmatic Thinking and Learning: Refactor Your Wetware (Pragmatic Programmers) as being more detailed and more informative, if you liked thinking fast and slow you would love that one better (it's also more structured!).

3.0 out of 5 stars ok Backup software, 17 Oct. 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As used quite a few different solution in terms of backup. I'm an amateur photographer and I like to keep a backup of all my pictures (around 40-50K). So I decided I would give this software a try. Good point is that it's pretty easy to use. Not a million pages to read and really straightforward. Put the CD in and follow the instruction.
It comes with 3 keys, which is good too if you have several computers.

Overall it's an ok backup system if you want to backup your entire computer. I would advise to use several backup, like a image of your system on DVD, and then your photos, music on different harddrive, and do it regularly too.

The downside of this software is penalized by its simplicity. Meaning you can not do much that back up the whole system. So I think it could be much better with a bit more customization.

5.0 out of 5 stars Peaceful way to wake up in a good mood, 16 Oct. 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This item is sensational. The lamp has basically one goal: wake you up in a very good mood every morning. Set the alarm, and there you go: gradually you will be woken up every morning with a nice gradual light which will looks like the sun comes into your room. It is a really good feeling. Previously i had the Lumie Bodyclock STARTER- but the plus of the Philips one is the sound! You can wake up to birds or radio song, and trust me, it is the best experience to wake up even if outside there it is raining. I recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fancy curry meals? I recommend that book!, 16 Oct. 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The compact size of the book is great and easy to use. I like the variety of curies from around the world.
The pictures of dishes are in a full page and really look delicious. Instructions are easy to follow with an introduction explaining the different spices, seeds and sauces used in the book.
The book is completed with dishes from meat, chicken, fish and also a section for vegetarian.
For someome who fancy curry meals- I recommend that book!

4.0 out of 5 stars Definetly a must have!, 26 Sept. 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
1st use, the mouse seems to be very sensible- very different from a rolling mouse.
The design is sharp/ modern look and easy to grab.
The mouse can easily be used on the pad but also on the bed or sofa as it will adapt any surfaces.
To start with, it was a bit tough to right click- as it would only allow a left click- but had to get used to it and after a few days it is actually really easy to use.
I do recommend that tool as even if very different from the previous rolling mouse we had- it does work quicker and the design looks much more modern. Definetly a must have!

3.0 out of 5 stars Sound is good but not comfortable to wear them, 15 July 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
First thing, the box of the product is good quality. You have two cables so you can share the music with someone else. Which is a bit misleading when you read the product description talking about music sharing, I thought that was going to be something you could link online or something. Instead it's just the option to plug another earphones to yours. That's not a really useful thing to me in any case.

In terms of sounds, it does give a great quality, bass etc.... It does the same as the other Sennheiser I have, which cost less than half of that one. The build of the whole headphone is sturdy, good looking. But the main grip I have with these is that they are not comfortable to wear. After listening to music for 20-30 minutes I get all sweaty around my ears, it's pressing too much on your ears. So, yeah, for the price you pay you could expect it to be more comfortable, I'll stick with my other headphone instead.
