5.0 out of 5 stars You need this book in your life!, 4 Jun. 2010
This book is brilliant! If you are looking to buy a book about simple Italian cuisine, then your search has ended. The recipes are well detailed and easy to follow, as are the 'master classes'. The book is beautifully illustrated with photographs of the food including the steps taken by those that cooked it and includes excellent guides to Italian cheeses and wines too. So far every recipe I have prepared has been a winner. The Ragù alla Bolognese is to die for and the pizza recipe will have you never dialling for a take-out again (my partner said it was one of the best pizzas she'd ever had!). All in all, beautifully simple and easy to follow recipes that help you produce wonderfully delicious and seemingly complex dishes. My only niggle is the portion sizes are on the large size--often the recipes cater for 8-12 people, but it's not too hard to work out the proportions for smaller quantities--it's certainly worth it!

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst Skate game ever..., 14 Feb. 2009
I've been skating on and off for nearly 20 years. I saw this and thought, as a nearly 34 year old skater, "Great, I can skate without the pain!" How wrong was I...
I cannot begin to describe to you all how dreadful this game is. Graphically, it's poor. The soundtrack is limited, and poor. The controls, especially the Wii Fit are so counter intuitive, with the Wii-mote and nunchuk not being any better. It just doesn't feel like being on a deck. You skate from you thighs, not your bum! The paradigm should be so good, but, unsurprisingly EA have manage to produce a truly awful skate game!
