4.0 out of 5 stars the speckled peiople, 19 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Speckled People (Paperback)
We are all mixed but Hamilton captures what it is like coming into a society and being a little different. now we are more used to other cultures, but he expresses the uncomprehending loives of these two little boys with parents who are evidently off the wall.
Stage version was dreadful : Book delightful

This is one of the most exquisite pieces that you will ever hear. Everything is perfect: timing, tone, bowing, expression. For this one piece, this cd is worth buying

5.0 out of 5 stars Mastery by Robert Greene, 19 Dec. 2012

This is an 'earn some money' book, and lacks the creativity of the 33 strategies of Power.
However, it is well written, veering too much towards pop psychology.
Interesting but not riveting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book I have read in last 5 years, 26 April 2010
This is a book to keep near you, read, reflect , add notes, go back over. It states that we are all at war , one way or another and if we are not aware, then we are being out manoeuvered. Good news is that there are only 33 strategies. All is backed up with examples from Ancient China, Greece, Roman leaders, American Presidents, British and German generals...fascinating stuff.
Extremely well written, beautifully laid out, highly accessible. Take it at your own pace

4.0 out of 5 stars Well made, well designed, practical, 26 April 2010
I often travel with groups and need my hands free. Often these bags are too bulky,too fiddley or the worst was an expensive black one which stained my clothes. This bag is perfect as it carries a lot -my passport, camera, phone, purse, emergency medical supplies ( cream, plasters, panadol, digestion, wipes), lipstick, small brush and polo mints. It is not bulky, has strong straps and sits snugly lo slung on my hips in front so I have easy access. Voila

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful, 9 Nov. 2009
Great film for early teens or those jaded by car chases, violence and predictable story lines. This meanders along giving an excellent insight into France in the mid 20th century
