Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Citizenfour (DVD)
A must see, but oddly very hard to find or stream in the UK. Be aware this ships from Germany, has German subtitles which are tricky to turn off in the DVD menu itself. Still, worth every penny.

This review is from: The Shock of the Fall (Paperback)
A book that its really folds you into the life of the character, a vivid portrayal of the struggles of mental illness. If you want to read something as good but from the perspective of another family dealing with it then When Red is Blue is as good, also I Know This Much is True was another novel dealing from the first person perspective but rather uniquely twins.I Know This Much is TrueWhen Red Is Blue

1.0 out of 5 stars One Star, 10 Oct. 2014
Battery life is rubbish, 10 years not a chance, 2 years if you are lucky. What a joke.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great shirt, 1 Feb. 2014

Bought to replace a Nike shirt that had worn out, for some reason Nike only seem to now sell shirts that fit ridiculously tightly. This shirt is form fitting but comfortable and great for lifting weights in which is my primary use.

1.0 out of 5 stars Small, nice action but.., 1 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the second keyboard of this design I've got from Logitech, the first last year had an issue where the legends wore off the keys within months. This was the replacement provided free of charge by Logitech (good service), however 4 months later I am back in the same position, the "S" and the "A" are starting to wear off!! I work in IT so perhaps somewhat harder than the average person but still, 4 months! This very poor design or quality control or likely both.

Avoid, unless you are going to hardly ever use it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating and entertaining read, 5 Oct. 2013
This is not a dry historical read about a central premise of the Industrial Revolution. Instead its an engaging account of why (in the authors opinion) it could only have happened when it did, and where it did (in Great Britain). Its a story of how a handful of pivotal events helped weave together a lot of small inventions and scientific breakthroughs that had been centuries if not thousands of years in the making.

The reason I am giving it four rather than five stars is the book would benefit from diagrams clearly explaining some of the inventions. Small reproductions of old plates here and there doesn't cut it and I found myself constantly searching the internet for diagrams so that I could better understand the descriptions.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice keyboard action but wearing out quickly, 10 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted to give this keyboard 5 stars as the key action is great, its compact and with the receiver it works perfectly with Win7. However I've had it now less than 6 months and already the legends are starting to wear off quite a few keys which is pretty poor manufacturing quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, insightful and terrying, 4 May 2013
This is a large book, but reads much like a much smaller thriller. That's not to say its light on detail or research because it most certainly isn't. An excellent book that is a must for students of history and especially the Cold War.

Salt: A World History

Price: £10.68

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating book, 23 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Salt: A World History (Paperback)
This is a fascinating book in so many unexpected ways. I can see this book being one I come back to again and again for research as I am currently studying History. As another reviewer has stated, it is meticulously researched and detailed and in fact that I believe is the reason why its probably a bit longer than it needs to be and the last fifth of the book a bit confused and jumbled, hence 4 stars and not 5.
