Warren Buffett: 43 Lessons for Business & Life
Warren Buffett: 43 Lessons for Business & Life
I like this book is a lot sayings that inspired me to read more, careful to invest and be honest. There are a lots more.
To those who really wanted to become successful reading is really important. I found that reading every successful people behind stories gained a lot of extra points that I can use on myself. I hope Warren Buffett will continue to produce more good books in future.
How to Make Money in Stocks: A Winning System in Good Times and Bad, Fourth Edition
How to Make Money in Stocks: A Winning System in Good Times and Bad, Fourth Edition
Don't get me wrong but this is one of the worst books I have ever read.

Let me explain why...
This book is about growth investing and growth investing only. The reason I thought the book is horrible is because the author go against some of the already proven techiniches and consensus already stabilished not only in Wall Street but for great legends like Benjamin Graham, Warren Buffett, John J. Murphy, Bulkowski, Nison and others.

For instance, he desregards the use of P/E or Discounted Cash Flow as a good metrics, giving exemples about the high P/E ratios found on Microsoft and other Tech Growth stocks and how the investor would have missed those stocks.
But he does not tell the story about the dot com bubble and how this same over valued P/E stocks went from a fortune to nothing, capitalizing on earning growth that even did not existed, more like a future promisse.

He gives other example about Bank of America with low P/E in 2008. For God Sakes a global financial crises and meltdown of stock market should not be a parameter for nothing and pro investor or not, who earned money in that year?

Other point the author dismiss based on his research is about Technical Analysis and some Patterns, saying almost all patterns have a low rate of success. The only pattern that he considers good is cup and handle because he was the first person to spot it and write about it, I guess...

On the final chapters the author have some chapters with titles like When to sell or how to time markets and stuff like that, but he does not give clear clues and techniques and pictures of how to do it and how to do it, he just talk in a shallow way.

He dislikes the idea of buying good and stabilished companys like Coca-Cola and Gillete just because the are too big to generate good profits or because he judges their management team old fellow with no interest to innovate or step out of the box. Also deslikes the idea of buy and hold good companies like Warren Buffett does.

In resume, is almost like he is saying "Go Big or Go Home!" and instigating the new investor to take risks with this unproven enterprises...

Like I said, this is a good for those interested in buy and look for growth stocks and maybe in this matter it can be a useful book, but to dismiss all the common sense and already proven techniques ranging from value investing and technical analysis for me would be madness
The Coyotes of Carthage: A Novel
The Coyotes of Carthage: A Novel
This novel explores the underbelly of American politics and how “opposition research” and “political operatives” are used for public policy decisions as well as political campaigns.

A mining company wants to purchase a thousand acres of pristine public land in South Carolina to mine it for gold, and they have hired a Washington DC political operative group to persuade the public to allow them to purchase it. The main character, Dre Ross, is the DC firm’s point person.

Dre has issues, including being black in a mostly white world, a sick brother, recent rejection by a girlfriend, an increasing dependence on alcohol, and the fact that he’s a reformed felon. At the book’s beginning, the moral ambiguity of Dre’s job is the least of his issues.

The corporate greed of the mining company is painted in the starkest terms. In real life, the choices typically aren’t nearly so clear. For instance, instead of gold, what if lithium needs to be mined for electric car batteries or rare earth elements are needed for a wide variety of industrial, defense, and consumer applications? Or a company wants to construct windmills to produce green power, but nearby property owners don’t want their view of the sea impaired? By making the choice so clear, the book allows the reader to focus on Dre rather than the public policy issue.

The author writes good clean crisp descriptive sentences. It suggests he can write on a variety of topics.

I haven’t read a fiction book in this genre but have read several similar memoirs, including Confessions of an Economic Hitman, by John Perkins and We’re with Nobody, by Alan Huffman and Michael Rejebian.

The author obviously knows how political operatives practice their craft, but he doesn’t let the book get bogged down in those details. He stays clearly focused on the character development of Dre and how he evolves throughout the book.

In the latter parts of the book the plot begins to get chaotic, reflecting the increasing chaos within the mind of the main character.

The ending (not to be a spoiler) could not be more symbolic. And it clearly emphasizes the most important things going on in the book.

I liked the book a lot and would recommend it to anyone.
The Candlestick Course
The Candlestick Course
I don't believe Steve Nison can be outdone by any other author when it comes to explaining candlestick charting. I absolutely enjoyed every thing I read and learned in this book. I first learned of candlesticks a few years ago but had no interest in spending a lot of time learning about them . I read Toni Turner's book on short term trading and in it she uses candlesticks and references Steve's books so I've taken the next step and read this book and am currently reading his first book 'Japanese Candlestick Charting Techniques'. Both can be considered the gold standard for candlesticks in my opinion. The others who have reviewed this and other of Steve's books have covered what is in each book very completely and in detail so I won't get into the contents. I want to point out the frustrations you will have in making your way through the books. Learning about candlestick charting is by necessity a visual experience, at least for me. I need the pictures to understand the text. In each of the two books I have read there are way too many chart examples that don't appear on the same page or facing page from the text. In some cases you need to thumb through 2,3 or in some examples 4 or more pages to get to the referenced chart. It's totally frustrating to spend 2 or 3 minutes trying to compare the text to a chart to finally find you were 2 pages off from the referenced chart. Also, there are just too many mistakes in the references. You can figure all this out but it takes time and cause a loss of concentration, which is bad for me. The print is large, which is good. The editors could/should have come up with a better format to put the text with the chart examples. That would have made these books very exceptional instead of just great.

The Essence of Success: 12 Mini Biographies: Richard Branson Bill Gates Nelson Mandela Steven Spielberg Stephen Hawking Chris Evans Frank Sinatra Tony ... and Virgin to Jeff Bezos and Amazon Book 1)
A good way to get a snapshot of several vivid figures from the 20th century.
There are a few annoying faults that do distract from the text:
1) Some chapters have clearly been digitised and not proofread. "Eve" is spelled "Iive", "He" is spelled "Ile" and "DOS" is spelled "I)()S". Really! This is the third edition; have you actually read it?
2) There are far, too many, commas in this, book. Some of which are, completely, inappropriate.
3) Although the 3rd edition was published in 2012, Tony Blair's biog ends with him in government. It also reckons he was 41 when he became prime minister in 1997, as well as asserting that he was born in 1953. Do the math!
In summary, it's worth the money, but won't become a treasured volume in your house.
The Miracle Equation: The Two Decisions That Move Your Biggest Goals from Possible, to Probable, to Inevitable
The Miracle Equation: The Two Decisions That Move Your Biggest Goals from Possible, to Probable, to Inevitable
I studied chemistry during college. During that time, I learned a fair share of equations, ones that describe how our human body operates, how the world works, and how compounds are formed with certain chemicals added up in detailed processes. While sometimes complex, it always boiled down to simple equations done one step at a time. I found comfort in the certainty of those equations that allowed me to create the same results over and over again.

But life has a lot of variables, a lot of uncertainty. It's not as easy to create the reproducible results I want for my life the way I once did in a laboratory. Sometimes we are blindsided by events out of our control. We get knocked down. We let our fears, doubts, and insecurities creep in. While we once operated from a place of hope, we now operate from a place of fear. We stop ourselves in our own tracks and fall short in creating the life that we want.

But then Hal wrote this book, The Miracle Equation, and saved the day! While reading through this book, I found myself giving my dreams a chance again. Hal's words gave me permission to allow the possibilities of miracles to be a constant in life, something I can create for myself again, and again, and again! He gave me the opportunity to not only have faith in myself and in my higher power, but an UNWAVERING faith, so that I am able to go after my mission UNTIL it comes to fruition. Secondly, Hal showed me how to put forth extraordinary effort in a simple, set-by-step formula, so that we can truly live out a life filled with miracles.

The Miracle Equation has given me an easily implementable guideline to use to create the miracles I want to see in my life. He has brought certainty in a journey filled with uncertainty. It's the only equation I'll ever need to remember for the rest of my life. Thank you Hal, for another beautiful body of life-changing work. The world thanks you!

Mike Oldfield - A Life Dedicated To Music
Well, I managed to get to the end of the book and found the appendices, two of which were pretty interesting. As for the main body, no. Oh no. No no no no.

Sporadic snippets of info interspersed with tedious lightweight anecdotes written in a teen fanzine style with little proof-reading so that we end up with irritatingly repeated words which are irritating.

There's also far too much personal opinion & fawning and not enough actual insight, critical comment or detailed biography. Perhaps I was expecting too much.

Here's an example: "...Getting spoilt rotten by British Airways when upgraded into an empty first class cabin on my return from Seoul, I had Amarok pumping full volume into my ears whilst being whisked home over the Siberian plains. The music matched the experience perfectly, the absolute joy captured in the music still managing to raise the hairs on the back of my neck and I'm not embarrassed to say, move me to tears. Absolutely first class!"

Not for me. On the plus side I bought the digital copy not the hardback so it only cost me a few quid.

Self-Portrait
Bob Dylan, infuriated by the public’s desire for him to produce works of genius every year or so, supposedly released this album in 1970 as a throwaway work of rubbish, just to spite the ever-expectant public. The perceived wisdom is that it is drivel, much like The Beach Boys’ dreadful “Smiley Smile”. Over the years, however, opinions have softened regarding it. I, personally, have always quite liked it. Taken as an extension of the country style introduced on its predecessor, “Nashville Skyline”, it is not a bad album at all. Indeed, I consider a better album than the previous one. It is longer and its instrumentation more varied and the songs’ diversity is far greater. The music played is excellent and the sound quality superb.

“All The Tired Horses” with its gospel voices and nothing more, is a bit throwaway, admittedly, but “Alberta” is laid-back and sweetly romantic, very much in a “Nashville Skyline” way, and “I Forgot More Than You’ll Ever Know” is a twangy and appealing country lament. “Days of ’49”, strong, insistent and bluesy, is a historical tale delivered in confident fashion by Dylan, as indeed is the next track, Gordon Lightfoot’s delightful “Early Morning Rain”. These don’t sound like an artist producing rubbish for the sake of it, to annoy people. He actually sounds as if he is enjoying playing this sort of material, as indeed he had on “Nashville Skyline”. The intensity in which he attacks the sad tale of “In Search Of Little Sadie” can’t really be questioned, in my book. Dylan’s cover of the ballad “Let It Be Me” may have appalled some, but I have always fund it charming and disarming. “Little Sadie” is a fun slice of country, acoustic boogie, while “Woogie Boogie” is the real thing - some upbeat barroom rocking piano. Damn, I am enjoying listening to this again. In many parts it matches the similarly sprawling and country-style experimentation of “The Basement Tapes”, which is much-lauded by pretty much everyone. Furthermore, everyone loved The Byrds' "Sweetheart Of The Rodeo, from 1968, so why not parts of this?

“Belle Isle” is just endearingly lovely. Just take these songs in isolation, if you have to, forget they are Bob Dylan, the composer of “Desolation Row” and so on. Just enjoy them for what they are. “Living The Blues” is, as would imagine, bluesy. The sound on it is superb, bassy and captivating. Dylan’s vocal is sleepily appealing, as are the Elvis-style “a-ha” backing vocals. The band are top notch. None of this album sounds half-baked or throwaway to me. What the heck, if some embittered “musos” disagree with me, or moaned and griped in 1970 - who cares?

“Copper Kettle” could easily have been a track from “New Morning”, to be honest. If it had been, it would have garnered praise. “We an’t paid no whiskey tax since 1792” is a line I have always liked. “Gotta Travel On” has some intoxicating percussion rhythms and some bluesy slide guitar. This is a very “Beggars’ Banquet”-style song. That album was loved by everyone. If Mick Jagger had wrapped his tonsils around this, it would have been loved, so why not this? It’s great.

The quality does admittedly suffer a little as the double album continues on its way. I have not commented on the live tracks, as I feel they were superfluous to the album. “Blue Moon” is veering into Elvis territory and also the sort of thing Dylan unfortunately records nowadays. Dylan’s cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s “The Boxer” doesn’t work as well as their version and Dylan’s lazy-ish vocal here does him no favours. “Take Me As I Am Or Let Me Go” is a steel guitar country crooner. “Take A Message To Mary” certainly would not have sounded out of place on “Nashville Skyline”. Again, though, it is perfectly enjoyable, taken for what it is. “It Hurts Me Too” is a relaxing country ballad. “Minstrel Boy” is bluesy and somewhat drunken in deliver. “Wigwam” certainly is a waste of time, a rather discordant brassy instrumental, rather like a New Orleans funeral. “Alberta 2” is a nice, rhythmic and bassy end to the album, raising the quality back up a bit.

By its end, the album does start to lose its appeal a little. A single album would have been far preferable and could have contained quite a few tracks, as they are quite short. It would not have been criticised as much, take out the live tracks and some of these at the end and you have a reasonable album. Go up to “Gotta Travel On” (leaving out the “Tired Horses”), add “Alberta 2”. That’s thirteen shortish tracks of good quality. It was the adding on of too much sprawling filler that did for this album, not the first half of it.

Core Java Volume I--Fundamentals (11th Edition) (Core Series)
Core Java Volume I--Fundamentals (11th Edition) (Core Series)
The book is overall very good in that the writing is concise, informative, and even largely fun to read for a programming language book. But this series is very strangely organized, and you should be aware of this.

This is Core Java, Volume I: Fundamentals, with a sister book named Core Java, Volume II: Advanced Features. But those title are very misleading. Many pages in the Fundamentals volume properly belong in the Advanced Features volume, and vice versa. For example, in the Fundamentals book the author includes many pages covering such topics as Reflection, Proxies & the Class Loader, and so forth. These are advanced topics if you ask me, and it would seem the author himself would agree! In not just one but in many places he says, "Application programmers can safely skip this section". I agree, because these sections have no place in book about fundamentals. But meanwhile very important topics which I would consider to be Java fundamentals are not covered in the Fundamentals volume, but in the Advanced Topics. Basic File I/O is in the Advanced Topics book, Reflection is in the Fundamentals book. That's exactly backwards!

Both Basic File I/O and Networking are in the Advanced Topics book. At the end of the Fundamentals book, you won't be able write useful programs because the very basic essentials of how to get data into them will have never been presented to you. You might be able to create some very basic GUI applications from the Fundamentals book, but what they might be doing besides looking pretty I don't know. Again, refer to the Advanced Topics book to read/write files to connect to anything on a network, etc. and generally having anything interesting to operate upon.

These books in tandem might do you well, but know that going in. The Fundamentals book by itself is really not sufficient to stand alone usefully.

Xantrex Power Inverter - 1000 Watt, Model# XM 1000
I purchased this inverter to be part of the replacement system for my 15 year old Trace modified sine wave inverter charger. The new system consists of this inverter, a 600 watt Prowatt inverter and a 20 amp Xantrex True Charge 2 charger. I chose this brand because of the outstanding performance of my original Trace inverter/charger. I chose to go with a component system this time so that I could replace indiviual pieces in the event of failure. I have lived off grid for 15 years and my solar/wind system ties into my trailer's original wiring. This inverter runs my compact refridgerator and kitchen/laundry outlets with no problem; the Prowatt inverter runs all my electronics and variable speed motors; it even powers a piece of medical equipment
The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl Vol. 2: Squirrel You Know It's True
The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl Vol. 2: Squirrel You Know It's True
*4.5 stars*

OK, there's only one thing wrong with having read Volume 2 of The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl: I can't find any pre-order listings for Volume 3. When is Volume 3 coming out????

The first issue in this volume felt a little scattered and unfocused, which is why this is a 4.5 star review instead of a 5 star review, but even in the first issue, there were bits I found really funny, and after that, I just kept on laughing out loud and loving it all the way through. I can't think of any other comic that feels so joyous, and it just makes me so happy whenever I read it. The humor is so great - both in Ryan North's text and in Erica Henderson's fabulous artwork - and even the letters columns are fun to read. And there are so many joys for a reader in this volume. Squirrel Girl and Nancy get to hang out with Thor! And Loki! And we finally get to see Nancy's fanfic about Cat Thor! And and and....!

I really, really need Volume 3 as soon as possible, please. Please???

I like reading this children's book one chapter at a time to my grandson which is all one four-year old can take. Although the illustrations are very well suited to children, there could have been more as children are very visual and love to see pictures as you read to them. Like all of Roald Dahl's books, the narrative and dialog are very clear and crisp and meant to be read aloud. As for the book condition which I bought as used, it was better than described. Very pleased with seller and item purchased. Recommend to anyone who loves reading to young people.

Revealing Us (Inside Out Series Book 3)
I give this book five stars because once again LRJ delivers a beautifully written story full of mystery and suspense that will keep everyone who reads on their toes, her writing is flawlessly vivid, vividly flawless!

I dislike nothing in this novel beside a couple of characters.

I love that this book made me fall for Chris all over again! He is everything in this book: soft, tough, vulnerable, strong and lets not forget sex on a stick! Even though this book is written in Sara's POV you get so much insight into Chris that not only do you feel what Sara feels but through her you become bonded and connected with him that you feel him also. I love their arguments when he's trying to protect her but comes off as controlling, his alpha male tendencies draw me in. I love that they never stay mad at each other too long and showed growth by talking their problems out, by words and actions. In this book we are introduced to some new characters, Chantal and Rey -loved them but Amber and Isabel - hated them with everything inside of me. I really wanted to like Amber, thinking maybe she would turn out to be a really nice person but after she constantly toyed with Sara I got the picture and she became my enemy! Now Sara showed us exactly how strong she can be throughout dealing with accusations, embassy problems, Amber and Isabel and even dealing with problems of her relationship with Chris. Watching her grow throughout this series is what puts a smile on my face. I am officially in deep with these characters that I feel like I know them personally and life outside of this series barely exists when I'm focused on finishing the next book!

" I am home. I'm home because I'm with him. And I kiss him as if I will never kiss him again, as if I'm dying of thirst and he is all that can quench me. And I believe he is. He has always been the answer to the question of what was missing from my life, even before I met him. "
" And he is my Prince Charming. My dark, damaged Prince Charming. My idea of perfect. "
" His eyes find mine and hold, and I can feel him beyond his touch. "
" Show me, " I challenge, wanting him to own me, when no other man will ever come close to having this much of me. When I never thought I'd want this much from a man. "
" You can embrace who you really are, and we can be whoever we want to be together. "
" But I feel him. Every time he enters a room, I feel Chris in every pore of my body, in every inch of my existence. "
" If you were going to leave me alone, you should have walked away before now, when I still knew how to breathe without you. "
" I don't have to leave yet, and you need a taste of that ' price ' right now. " He goes down on his knees and spreads my legs. " Or maybe I'm the one who needs a taste. "

I highly recommend this book to FSOG and PLL lovers you won't be disappointed. This book is a part of the Inside Out Series and should be read after the first two novels.
Reflections
Reflections
Poet, novelist, essayist, artist, mystic, Hermann Hesse has captured the heart of millions of readers around the world with such works as Siddhartha, Damien, Steppenwolf and Magister Ludi. There is something incredibly timeless about his writing and Volker Michels compiles Hesse's words taken from novels and other books in the form of aphorisms arranged thematically - Politics, Society and the Individual, The Task of the Individual, Education and Schools, Religion and the Church, Knowledge and Consciousness, Books and Reading, Reality and Imagination, Art and the Artist, Humor, Happiness, Love, Death, Youth and Old-Age. Here is a quick sampling:

Society and the Individual
"Men of courage and character always give others a very queasy feeling"

Education and Schools
"The question of schools is the only modern cultural question that I take seriously and sometimes get worked up about. In me school destroyed a great deal, and I know of few men of any stature who cannot say the same. All I learned was Latin and lying."

Religion and the Church
"Every true Protestant resists his own church as he does every other, because his nature bids him attach more importance to what man can become than to what he is."

Books and Reading
"Literature creates a magic space, in which things otherwise incompatible become compatible and the otherwise impossible becomes real. And this imaginary or surreal space has its own counterpart in magical time, the time of poetry, myth, and fairy tale, which contradicts all historical, calendar time and is common to the legends and fairy tales of all peoples . . . Rare as authentic magic may have become, it is still alive."

Reality and Imagination
"I don't know anything about ghosts. I live in my dreams. Other people likewise live in dreams, but not in their own; that's the difference."

Art and the Artist
"The understanding of art and the ability to experience it requires a natural disposition, which must be related to the artistic drive, or talent. Those who have it are capable of artistic pleasure, others are not."

"Even the most insignificant work of art, a pencil sketch consisting of six lines, or a four-line poem, aims boldly and blindly at the impossible; it is a striving for totality, an attempt to enclose chaos in a nutshell!"

Humor
"All higher humor begins with ceasing to take oneself seriously."

Death
"After every death, life becomes more delicate and precious."

This is not a book to be read from cover to cover as if the goal is simply to finish the book. Rather, each aphorism should be read more like one reads a poem - slowly, turning the words and ideas over in the mind and then thinking about the aphorism throughout the day and in days to come. Reflections is Hesse's magic, wisdom, insight and poetry in it purist form. Please treat yourself and order this book, a book which just might become one of your very favorites.
The Nero Wolfe Cookbook by Rex Stout (1973)
The Nero Wolfe Cookbook by Rex Stout (1973)
My partner and I are Nero Wolfe fans (we own all the Rex Stout "Nero Wolfe" stories). However, we especially love the TV series (starring Maury Chaykin), food is very important to Wolfe, and I love to cook. We own the entire series on DVD and were (again!) watching the episode in which the 40-minute scrambled eggs were included. This time, just for the heck of it, I googled "40-minute-scrambled eggs" and, lo and behold, the recipe appeared. Credit was given, of course, to this cookbook so, of course, I ordered the cookbook. It does not disappoint. It not only has the recipes for the lunches and dinners Fritz makes, but there are comments from Archie, Wolfe, and Fritz about the story line, etc. We love it - we've made the eggs (they're scrumptious) and will be following other recipes, as well. There is absolutely nothing common in this book, even the simplest recipes have a little extra not found in other cookbooks. So, if you love to cook and want a cookbook that is most definitely off the beaten path, this is the one for you.
USB Stick 32 GB Harry Potter - Original Harry Potter 2.0 Flash Drive, Tribe FD037701
USB Stick 32 GB Harry Potter - Original Harry Potter 2.0 Flash Drive, Tribe FD037701
I have issues with using this product because I like to wear my USB on my lanyard at work. The little chain is attached to the USB section, not the ‘lid’, so I have to attach my entire lanyard to the computer when using. It is incredibly flimsy and the chain has broken multiple times, although luckily it’s only fallen off in my bag so far. The ‘lid’, which is the feet section, doesn’t fit securely so whilst walking around with Harry on my lanyard, I have often lost half of his body without noticing as it comes loose and falls off easily - and I have only had him a few days! It needs some sort of mechanism so that it clicks into place. It also needs a more robust chain to prevent loss when using.
It is cute, but it’s obviously more of a novelty item than a practical item.

I found this book quite readable even though I do not know anything about the technical side of musicianship. I had however, met both Nelson and Neal on one of their trips to Australia when I was a young child, as Alison's parents were known to my family. I enjoyed Harry's writing style and the glimpse into their life "on the road".
The Oregon Trail: Sketches of Prairie and Rocky-Mountain Life [Illustrated]
The Oregon Trail: Sketches of Prairie and Rocky-Mountain Life [Illustrated]
I came across a reference to this book in "A History of Histories", where it is described as one of the best travel books of the nineteenth century, and was intrigued. It tells the story of travelling West in the middle of that century and life on the move over the plains. The author, Francis Parkman, a New Englander and graduate of Harvard, had more interest in the Indian communities and French trappers he came across than the settlers heading west. He joined them on buffalo hunts and enjoyed their hospitality and describes ways of life that were soon to be utterly changed.

Storex Extra Large Book Bin, 14.5 x 9.2 x 7 Inches, Assorted Colors, Case of 6 (71126E06C)
While these are a good price, the size is totally wrong! At the top, they measure 4 1/2 inches, but that is not the 'smallest' width of these, so you can't assume you can fit something very wide inside of them. I bought them to use as cabinet organizers. The width of the bottom of the storage containers is really only 2 3/4 inches! It goes wider as it goes up to the top, which doesn't help. The ad description should list the real minimum width so people know what they can actually fit inside these storage bins. Also, the length of the bottom is 9 inches, so if you are using it for books, you will not be able to put anything wider than 8 1/2 -- 8 3/4 inch wide books in them.

Other uses:
spice racks
will not work for canned goods

I bought some 14.3x5.3x7 inch ones and I use them to organize cleaning supplies and stuff in the hall closet, and behind the kitchen sink.

If you find the right size storage bins, you can use them for can soup or other canned good organizers for cabinets, or to store can soda or beer in the refrigerator and not have to worry about cans getting moved around and out of order.

If the measurements were realistic, I would have rated this item higher, but given that people are counting on accurate measurements to use a product, it is important to whether a product is a pass or fail! None of us want to deal with returns!
Penguins Stopped Play: Eleven Village Cricketers Take on the World
Penguins Stopped Play: Eleven Village Cricketers Take on the World
This is a thoroughly entertaining travelogue about a village cricket team, optimistically called the Captain Scott XI. Having played up and down England and adventured to a few other countries, they decide to play their way around the world.

Harry Thompson captains the team and has played in Antarctica when he happened to be there, so he sets out to be the first person to play cricket on all seven continents. Taking a long New Year break he and the team head off on appallingly mismanaged flights and cram the matches against Barbados, South Africa and elsewhere into the schedule.

I laughed out loud every evening that I read this book. I know as much about cricket as you could write on a matchbox. As with Michael Green's The Art of Coarse Rugby, however, it's the participation that counts, not the rule book. I am very sure that cricketing aficionados will get more out of this than I did, but don't let that stop the non-sporty folks from reading it too.

Thompson worked for the BBC and drops names such as Hugh Laurie and Hugh Grant into the tale, focusing on how they played cricket when they turned out one Saturday, but the real stars are the varied characters who make up the team.

I was really saddened by the end where we learn that the author died of cancer shortly after finishing the copy-edits. However it makes us understand that if there is anything we want to do in life, we should just go ahead and do it.
Shop Fox D2057A Adjustable Mobile Base, Small
Shop Fox D2057A Adjustable Mobile Base, Small
If you purchase this mobile base, I think you'll be happy with it once you get it assembled and get your tool in place on it. But the key phrase here is "once you get it assembled". Trust me, I've put together a lot of products over the years, and this one required a tremendous amount of patience and unnecessary work to get assembled.

As other reviewers have mentioned, some of the parts have welding slag on them and inside them that prevent them from being assembled. Most notably on mine was the tube where the leveling legs are supposed to be inserted. Neither one of them would fit because of excess welding debris deposited inside the tubes. I had to take a Dremel tool with a grinding tip and reach way up inside to grind out all the garbage to get the legs to slide inside. Thanks to the other reviewers for making me aware of this situation so I was ready for it!

But that paled in comparison to the utter stupidity of the cross bars. Each of the four bars - they're the ones in the picture that say Shop Fox on them - are intended to be adjustable. They slide in and out of the corners and lock in place with the bolts. Great idea. They don't want you sliding them too far out of the corners or else the entire base would be too unstable, so the bars are marked with the word MAX and a line to indicate the maximum amount they can be pulled out. Here's the incredibly stupid part. They stamped the word and the line so hard onto the bar that they distorted the steel, causing it to balloon out in that area. As a result, the bars won't slide into the corners!! Once I finally figured out why the bars wouldn't slide in, I then had to pound the sides of the bars with a small sledge hammer to get them back into the proper shape. Four bars, and each one has two stamps on it, so eight areas had to be pounded back into shape!! The most asinine bit of manufacturing I've ever seen.

The base can be assembled around your tool, which in my case was why I bought it. I couldn't exactly lift my 380 pound bandsaw into place. But the instructions didn't make a lot of sense for how to do that, so in the end I had to wing that part of the assembly and figure out my own way of getting the base built around the saw.

On the positive side, the base arrived all in one piece, all the parts intact, and very well packed. The instructions were clear, except for the part mentioned above. You have several mounting options for the casters. My very heavy saw rolls beautifully on the base, and is rock solid when the legs are down.

So in the end, I can recommend the base, although with reservations. Plan on setting aside plenty of time for assembly, and be sure you have a serious amount of patience!

Build quality is very flimsy. I was planning to buy more of these but then I ended up buying 5 USd floor lamps from walmart. You have to be very careful while building balloon columns as the pieces keep coming off. Also once done, you can't move it from one place to another as the piece might come off and you end up spending more time putting it together
An Introduction to Programming Using Java
An Introduction to Programming Using Java
This book is very clear and straightforward. It explains everything quickly and to-the-point with a short example for each topic that you can then apply to writing other java programs. It's very easy to read through and you never end up staring a page full of text or a page full of uncommented code. All the code examples are not only explained in depth, but almost always commented with anything you would need to know. One review mentions that the coding examples do not work correctly. I never had this problem.
My only issue with the book is that new material is often brought up during the lab exercises without being introduced in the chapter first. This isn't a big deal, though, because during the labs any new material is explained just fine, I would just prefer it if the chapters mentioned what would be in the labs. The lab and homework exercises are quite fun and you learn a lot from them. However, there is one down side... there are a good amount of typos, but I suppose those will get fixed in a later edition. Overall though, a really great book.

The Original McKenzie Night Roll, Waists Up to 100 cm (Eligible for VAT Relief in the UK) Long Pillow for Lower Back and Spinal Support While Sleeping, Proper Position and Posture, Pain Relief
Both me and my brother have herniated discs and this helped within the first week or so of consistently using it. I’m 120lbs, got the xs. I have a very soft mattress topper so the roll doesn’t bother me but my brother says he uses it on a firm mattress and he’s just as happy with it. Helps us both sleep longer and get out of bed easier. It simply supports your lumbar while you sleep. I’ve discovered that you can either tie it around your waist or lie it flat for side or back sleepers. Pilates, water therapy and CBD oil have all helped me heal myself holistically. I wish you the same success!

EGV 3 Pack Camera Lens Protector Compatible with iPhone 12 Pro Max 5G 6.7-inch, HD Clear Tempered Glass Back Camera Protector, Case Friendly, Ultra-Thin, Easy Installation
This protector is obviously a good quality from the feel of it but it does affect the quality of your picture with the flash on, it cause a glare onto the other cameras. I took a 12 pictures to show you the difference between flash with and without protector and without flash with or without protector in all 0.5x, 1x and 2x. You can really tell the big difference of the quality of the camera with the flash on, it took away the True Tone. But the without flash didn’t seem like it changed the True Tone although I do think it dimmed the True Tone for the 0.5x, you can tell the without protector is brighter, but for the others it was almost similar, it looks like I’ve used the same pictures but I really haven’t😂

As someone who uses flash quite a lot, I think I’m gonna have to pass on this one and rely on raised edge phone protector case to protect my cameras. Because I know with glasses, it will always cause a glare through the glass, so if whoever made this sees this, maybe add a thin black sticker/ lining around the cameras edges to stop the light from bouncing onto the cameras?

Sono commosso! e non scherzo...
l'ho presa in offerta, la stavo guardando da un bel po' di tempo e quando il prezzo è crollato di 50 euro non ci ho pensato un secondo, ma avevo molto dubbi...
1. non era nemmeno disponibile in prime in quel momento (quindi con qualche garanzia in meno sulle restituzioni, etc etc)
2. paure sul gusto del caffè, visto che è la mia terza macchinetta e le prime due erano da caffè all'americana (brodo nero) e non certo il nostro caffè espresso o figurarsi il cappuccino...
3. ho pure aspettato 8 giorni per una spedizione!

ma appena l'ho provata è stato amore a prima degustazione...
1. sappiate che il caffè da bar è troppo forte per me, mi fa venire i trmori, qui si può scegliere quanta caffeina verrà fuori
2. quando vi arriva fatele un paio di lavaggi automatici (mettete in bicchiere sotto ogni bocca, anche quella del latte) perchè spara acqua o vapore da ogni poro per pulirsi
poi fate almeno 3 caffè e buttateli... dal quarto caffè... DIVINO!
il cappuccino fatto subito dopo... INCREDIBILE
3. potete memorizzare 2 caffè personalizzati (ossia quantità di caffeina, quantità di acqua, etc) per avere sempre a portata di dito la vostra combinazione perfetta (nemmeno al bar mi hanno mai concesso una cosa del genere dove la troppa caffeina mi faceva venire i tremori)
4. è prodotta in europa, stavo anche guardando una Gaggia in metallo che ha un nome italiano, ma ormai è fatta in oriente e questo mi ha fatto desistere, facendomi propendere per questo gioiellino pur costando di più... ma la qualità c'è tutta pur essendo fatto in plastica (chi vi scrive in genere odia le cose fatte in plastica, ma per questo faccio un eccezione)

il suo unico limite (e si sente) è la caffè che voi mettete dentro!
per provarla subito avevo preso il caffè in chicchi del lidl e già con quello diventa buono il caffè, ma credo che macchina meriti come minimo la prova di caffè etiope (esattamente dov'è nato il caffè nella provincia di kaff) oppure il colombiano, oppure qualche altra delizia... ora mi vergogno di averci messo dentro del caffè mediocre

ribadisco il concetto... prima ero titubante, pensavo fosse quasi uno spreco di denaro, ma visto lo sconto mi sono buttato rischiando e ora non potrei più farne a meno, per rendere l'idea non mi ci stava la bottiglia del latte in frigo, ero già pronto a buttare il frigo per comprare un frigo dove farci stare il pezzo del latte! per fortuna ho trovato il modo di metterla sulla porta del frigo così ho risparmiato

mi auguro duri a lungo negli anni

Cozmor Air Purifier for Home Large Room with Auto Sensor and HEPA H13 Filter - with CleanFuse Technology,Child and Pet Friendly - Reduces Odors, Mold, Pollen, Smoke and Pet Dander to Improve Indoor Air
Great air purifier can really improve your life. But to qualify as great, it needs to be powerful enough to clean the air in a large living room or playroom, quiet and dark enough for you to sleep near it in a bedroom, and inexpensive enough that it’s reasonable to have several spread throughout your home.

This air pup is compact enough to fit on my desk and is designed to filter single rooms up to about 250 square feet. This compact model is equipped with an H13 True HEPA filter with Cleanfuse technology able to remove 99.98 percent of dust, pollen, smoke, odor, mold spores, and pet dander. It’s an excellent inexpensive option that eschews technology like UV and ionization more commonly found in this price range. Instead, it features a three-stage filtration system that includes a pre-filter, a HEPA filter, and an activated carbon filter. And three fan settings let us control the speed and volume of the purifier.
While this air purifier was designed for use in the bedroom (its fan is ultra-quiet, and it features an optional soft blue night light with two brightness settings), it’s quite portable and can be moved from room to room if needed. Aesthetically, it wouldn’t be out of place on your nightstand, with its white or black case and sleek design. And though its capacity is on the smaller size is doesn’t have as many features as other air purifiers, it’s hard to beat the price.

Got order three days earlier than estimated. Was a little worried reading other reviews of people receiving a just few thick pieces.

Received 11 sticks all within a reasonable size though a three were thicker than a pencil which will be interesting to chew on. Some were kind of rough with fibrous spots but hey, they’re roots. They can’t all be perfect like what one’s used to seeing in the carefully curated produce section of grocery stores.

Having experience with these before (keeps part of my brain busy with chewing while trying to focus on studying) the flavor is as expected, a pleasant but not overpowering licorice flavor.
