The heel is way too big. The advert says 1 inch but its closer to 1.5 inch and looks a bit strange, The toe extends quite far out as well

This review is from: Churchill (Kindle Edition)
A good book about the great man himself. You start to understand Churchill's work ethic and mentality and there's a decent amount of info about history

This was an interesting book most the way through. It goes some way to give you an idea of what Lawrence was like as a person and gives you relevant historical facts as well.

3.0 out of 5 stars It could have been easily half the length, 18 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
He goes really over top in detail as another reviewer has written. In one bit he spends about a page describing the patterns on doors of a particular area of Egpyt (or wherever it was) and probably about 10% of the book is dedicated poetry and the number of syllables used in a line depending on the era. It could have been easily half the length. But you get some decent information about the Arabs from it nonetheless

There's a lot of background information missing- the war between France and China in Vietnam is hardly mentioned at all. Also, I've never seen a book with so many spelling errors in my life. But I suppose it's not that bad, you get a decent enough idea of what he did

5.0 out of 5 stars Political Genius, 19 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Leviathan (Kindle Edition)
A great book by a great philosopher. I think he was one of the first philosophers to write about the social contract theory of giving up your freedom in order to receive security from the state. I'm not exactly religious but the writing at the end about the unreliability of Catholicism is very intelligent as well.

The above says it all. It didn't even work once so its probably best investing in more expensive ones. Apparently the person on the other end could hear a distorted version of my voice but I couldn't hear a single word they were saying.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor design, 11 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The collar makes it look like some sort of John Travolta prop and the buttons are way too small for the holes and they come out within about 5 seconds of putting them back in again. On some t-shirts its ok to just not have any buttons done up, but with this one the V-shape that opens up is so long and wide it looks like you're trying to show off your chest like with those t-shirts they've started making these days- the one's men wear when they go out to Yates or Walkabout with some lame necklace with it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Reading, 11 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For its price this a decent deal. I picked up some informative arguments along the way. One of my only problems is that he is too liberal - this policy of being completely accepting and tolerant will only go so far when you have a population of people who are willing to live by those principles. When others come along who are anything but respectable to those principles, its a different story. In my opinion this shows a lack of foresight and a certain naivete of the man. But there's some good rational arguments nonetheless.
