5.0 out of 5 stars Best comedy on TV, 28 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another fantastic season from the best comedy on TV right now - smart, warm, funny with great, likleable characters and outstanding comic performances from Amy Poehler, Nick Offerman and Rob Lowe in particular. If you like the US Office you'll love this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Looks good, stable, ok to put together, 28 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a nice product that looks good when completed - not too hard to put together, though you need plenty of space and I'd recommend having a spare pair of hands (although I did it on my own).

Good value compared to most units we looked at of this size, and the extended base is a great feature to keep it from tipping forward if you don't want to attach it to the wall - there was no obvious place for the screw to go if attaching to the wall which was slighlty baffling.

All in all a good product and delivery was swift.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating and eye-opening look at branding, 2 Feb. 2012
Got this on Monday at the author's superb British Library event and read it in just a few days, could hardly put it down. It's a fascinating - and at times, scary - look at the deception and manipulation used by marketers today in order to get their customers to buy their products. Lindstrom gets to the very heart of some shocking revelations. One story about a Phillippines confectionary company who gave chemically-addictive products to pregnant mothers in order for their babies to become addicted to their products beggars belief! Lots of industry inside info, but written in a very readable style.

I would definitely recommend to anyone interested in the marketing industry and anyone who wants to understand how they are being brainwashed to buy products and brands, but I warn you it's not a comfortable read!
