5.0 out of 5 stars Great piece of equipment, 19 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant bit of kit. I use it for work and it's just about perfect. Really well made, it has the appearance that it will last for donkeys years. It has little pockets in both compartments that let you tuck stuff away and a Velcro pocket at the front should you really not have space for the kitchen sink. Rugged, well made and versatile

Fantastic little speaker with loads of power for its size. Easy to pair with any device and a bonus is the fact it can tune into FM radio, which when you work long and boring night shifts, is almost life enhancing. One of my favourite buys.

My partner is Polish and it doesn't seem to have a lot of everyday words she uses. Not good

It's just a teaser trailer for the full app. Only the first three sections work. Might just be worth paying the £2.50 or what it is for the full app

5.0 out of 5 stars Danny Boy - pure entertainment, 7 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A brilliant, funny memoir including some of the people Danny Baker had met when he started his first job in a record shop in London and then as a writer on Sniffin' Glue and NME including legends such as Elton John and Marc Bolan, Queen, The Clash, The Sex Pistols, Mick Jagger, Peter Cook and Ian Dury and his minder Fred Rowe, spending time with the latter on a tour of Europe, which is a highlight for me as a huge Dury fan. The writing is like his radio persona; erudite, witty, intelligent and absolutely engaging.

The real winner amongst all the brilliant stories and anecdotes is Danny's frankness, honesty and willingness to point out some of his less than enobling cons, gaffes, tricks and humiliating experiences, which compliment the amazing experiences and people he met. The book ends somewhere around the early 80's (squeezed into somewhere around 250 pages) and there's so much incredible fun packed in there god knows how many more pages he'll need for the subsequent 30 years of his career.

It is a brilliant read (I finished it in a day and a half... and that's just when I wasn't working!) and in it he entices us with the promise of volume two.

If you love DB this is essential. If you love entertaining autobiographies, it's still essential. And worth it alone for the recurring tale of David Essex's brother and his fantastic, straight-talking dad (his hero, I think).

5.0 out of 5 stars A demystifying introduction to Buddhism, 12 April 2001
... I personally have read a variety of Buddhist books from the numerous traditions out there, and feel that Mr. Claxton's book is a worthy addition to them. He does not claim that his book is a definitive guide to Buddhism but simply an overview of, or introduction to a deeply profound and complex belief system. As a practioner of the Theravadan tradition for a while, and a Buddhist for a good many years I was not searching for profundity, but simply a reminder of the honesty and nowness of Buddhism. A refresher of how an ancient philosophy could be applied to a modern society. I truly do not believe this book is solipsistic in any way, and on the contrary provides a picture of the warmth and humanism of any Buddhist tradition as it applies to anyone on the planet. I would recommend this book to any beginner for a simple, sweet introduction, and any committed follower for a gentle reminder of the truth and greatness of the Dhamma.
