7 Secrets to Investing Like Warren Buffett
7 Secrets to Investing Like Warren Buffett
Nice read! Lots of good information and it's great to see that the formulas are included that help me visualize how to figure out what math everyone is talking about while they are referring to a ratio, percentage or figure. I really started enjoying the book when I reached the section on Secret 5 until the end of the book. Easy read and can be read quickly in a day. Take your time reading so you can practice the examples that are provided along with the going through the formulas to help you understand everything in better detail.
The History of the Future: Oculus, Facebook, and the Revolution That Swept Virtual Reality
The History of the Future: Oculus, Facebook, and the Revolution That Swept Virtual Reality
A lot of time (half or two thirds of the book) was spent setting up the founding process, and everyone involved in it. This was solid and read like a good founding story, getting to know the different characters involved, their desires and goals, etc, and setting up for an impending confrontation (is it the competing release of the HTC Vive, is it the launch day issues of the Oculus Rift, is it the blow back on lack of hand tracking on initial release that was teased earlier in the book?).

In the end, little to no time was spent discussing the actual launch of the Rift CV1, the drama around the competing "room scale" Vive, and the people who waited months after the official launch to receive their headset. Instead the book sympathetically covers the rise and fall of the creator of r/The_Donald and how Luckey became involved with Nimble America and the ensuing drama that ultimately ended his time with Oculus.

This is not to say that drama isn't worth covering, but I question whether Luckey's personal issues are relevant to a book ostensibly about the history of the modern VR movement (even with its point of view rooted in the creation and acquisition of Oculus by Facebook).

In the end the book was about Palmer Luckey to the exclusion of important moments in the history of Oculus and the modern day VR resurgence. This was not the book I thought I was purchasing with the title "The History of the Future: Oculus, Facebook, and the Revolution That Swept Virtual Reality". Not one star, because I truly enjoyed the first half of the book.
El libro de Steve Jobs: Luces y sombras de un genio (Ensayo general) (Spanish Edition)
El libro de Steve Jobs: Luces y sombras de un genio (Ensayo general) (Spanish Edition)
Este voluminoso y de cuidada edición volumen narra la historia de Steve Jobs desde su juventud (aunque incluya alguna breve pincelada de su infancia). Escrito a dos manos por los experimentados periodistas Brent Schlender (uno de los mejores conocedores de la industria informática desde su nacimiento, escribe para el Wall Street Journal y para Fortune) y Rick Tetzeli (editor ejecutivo de la revista de tecnología y negocios Fast Company, aunque también fue director adjunto de la revista Fortune y editor de Entertainment Weekly), que sin embargo decidieron que el libro fuese narrado en primera persona por Brent, que tuvo la suerte de tratar personalmente con Steve Jobs a lo largo de casi 25 años.

Hay un aspecto del libro que me ha gustado especialmente, y es su diseño. Concebido como un rectángulo negro casi por completo, tanto la portada, la contraportada como los cortes superior, inferior y frontal están en ese color. La tipografía y el estilo general, contenido y simple, siguen el estilo Apple totalmente (me refiero siempre a la copia de tapas duras, el resto no lo conozco).

El motivo de leer este libro no era por tanto que yo tuviese un especial interés en Steve Jobs. Pero empezó a picarme la curiosidad por Steve cuando leí el libro de Ed Catmull, Creatividad S.A. El retrato que Ed pintó de Steve no se parecía en nada a la imagen que tenía de él, y pensé que quizás su historia fuese más allá de la imagen polémica que han construido a su alrededor.

El libro me ha gustado, mucho. Es más que evidente que ambos periodistas saben cómo escribir una buena historia, y la narración te engancha e informa a partes iguales. Va de lo general a lo más específico. He sobrevolado buena parte de la historia de la informática reciente, desde los años 70 hasta casi la actualidad. Brent y Rick saben de qué hablan, entienden la parte tecnológica y la empresarial, además de la humana. Es curioso e incluso divertido ver hasta que punto las relaciones personales entre los grandes magnates de las empresas más punteras influyen en cómo se desarrolla la tecnología y, por ende, el mundo que nos rodea.
Si me tengo que quedar con una sola razón por la que merezca la pena leer este libro, sin embargo, no sería nada relacionado directamente con la tecnología, la innovación, la gestión empresarial o con sus famosos desaires y discusiones. Creo que lo más interesante de su biografía es ver su proceso de aprendizaje. Cómo supo evolucionar, limar sus asperezas y defectos -aunque nunca desaparecieron del todo, claro- y sacar el mejor partido posible de sus grandezas. Cómo aprendió, gracias en parte a Ed Catmull, a tratar a las personas, a entender las sutiles y complejas relaciones humanas. Cómo no permitió que nada de esto afectase a su familia y cómo supo separar ambas áreas de su vida. Y por cómo supo encajar y aprender de sus grandes y llamativos errores, de sus tremendos y públicos batacazos. Nadie nace siendo grande, decide -con enorme y a veces desmesurado esfuerzo- superar y aprender de cada caída y de cada fallo.
Top 10 Visionaries that Changed the World: 500 Life and Business Lessons
Top 10 Visionaries that Changed the World: 500 Life and Business Lessons
If you are and entrepreneur, an innovator, a creative or just someone looking to make your mark, you may be asking yourself ‘how?’. George Ilian is back with another exceptional book to provide you with inspiration and steer you in the right direction. This collection of 500 life lessons is unlike any other book I’ve read. It isn't a list of quotes or simply anecdotes from each of the ten peoples’ careers. What Ilian does is incredible. For each person he focuses on, he provides a timeline that encompasses both personal and business growth for each visionary. As he describes an event in one of their lives, he culls out a lesson for us to learn from it. For instance, Steve Jobs wanted to build Apple as an appealing brand. What steps did he take to get there? What hiccups along the way did he retroactively learn from? And further, what can we as readers take away from it? Amazing. Each visionary’s tale is different, as they all have lived extremely different lives. The one thing they share is they’ve all accomplished something extraordinary. The structure of each visionary’s section varies and the effect is stunning. With each person’s ups and downs, we can gain so much from how they got there or what they achieved (whether it be a goal or a lesson learned) Ilian strings together the similarities and contrasts the differences. This book will help you see opportunity, take control, innovate and find success in your own career. Awesome, inspiring and educational read.
WEconomy: You Can Find Meaning, Make a Living, and Change the World
WEconomy: You Can Find Meaning, Make a Living, and Change the World
In WEconomy, purpose is the new currency. Get it right and business health, profitability and value will follow. The book explores the social dimension of finding a problem and solving it as the surest key to success.

In practice, the idea is to embed purpose into every area of the business. The involvement of senior management is critical, as well as, engagement with the entire workforce at some point. Identifying strategic stakeholders is important too. The idea is to arrive at a final articulation in order to fulfill the basic purpose in its entirety.

Impact engineering is a great example. Stakeholders find a cause with merit, build a practical action plan and engage the network frequently and methodically. Team members must listen, learn and develop an approach toward problem solving that is all-encompassing and all-inclusive.

An example of a worthy cause would be reducing infant mortality rates in high risk areas of the world like Africa or Asia. The effort involves reducing premature birth complications with routine medical interventions, the use of prenatal vitamins, optimal dietary protocols and much more. Availability of quality vaccinations and antibiotics (including natural antibiotics) may be helpful too.

Overall, "WEconomy: You Can Find Meaning..." by Craig Kielburger, Holly Branson and Marc Kielburger is a gem of a book on the mechanics of marrying organizational dynamics with technology to solve difficult social challenges worth tackling.
Food, Health, and Happiness: 115 On-Point Recipes for Great Meals and a Better Life
Food, Health, and Happiness: 115 On-Point Recipes for Great Meals and a Better Life
Oprah's cookbook is filled with gourmet flavors and beautiful pictures that will draw you into fantasizing about making her recipes. The best way to approach this cookbook is to read the entire book and then to choose 6-8 recipes you want to make. I say this because many of the recipes require special ingredients. For the 8 recipes I chose to make I needed 6 special ingredients. I bought ground chipotle chile seasoning, 6 cans of San Marzano tomatoes from Italy, white rice flour (for the lavender cookies), 6 cans of Lychees, Sabatino Truffle Zest and Sabatino White Truffle Oil. Cooking with these ingredients was really fun.

Here are the recipes I tried and my experience:

Summer Corn Chowder – There are so many flavors going on in this chowder I decided to skip the thyme. Instead of making the recipe for chicken stock I just used six cups of water and six teaspoons chicken base. That saved a lot of time. The garnishes are the highlight of this soup and I chose bacon, pimentos and corn seasoned with chipotle chile seasoning.

Mashed Cauli-Potatoes – These are better than plain mashed potatoes. I admit I doctored them up a bit with more butter, paprika and seasoning salt and added 5 green onions, sliced and sauteed. The recipe called for Yukon gold potatoes but I used russet and cubed them before boiling.

Skinny Cornbread – This is a more savory cornbread and if you like you can still serve it with butter and honey. Definitely with butter. It has onions and jalapeno chiles in it. My husband ate 3 pieces and I admit to having two. Since I don't have a cast iron pan I just used a 9-inch glass pie plate.

Turkey Lasagna – OK this recipe is very challenging because you have to use a mandoline slicer. I suggest you get a slicer with cut-resistant gloves as I did. This recipe calls for San Marzano Italian tomatoes and I must say they are the best canned tomatoes ever! With just three regular zucchinis and one medium Mexican eggplant I was able to make the dish. You layer the vegetables, sauce and mozzarella cheese. The dish you should use is a 13 x 9 x 2-inch glass baking dish. Also I didn't have any granulated garlic or onion so I just used one teaspoon each of garlic powder and onion powder. I also used one tablespoon dried parsley and one tablespoon dried basil in place of fresh. Instead of minced garlic I just pressed three garlic cloves. I also used less pepper and salt. One teaspoon of seasoning salt was perfect. So that was the most complex recipe in the book!

Lavender Shortbread – Making lavender shortbread is a very aromatic experience. The orange zest and crushed lavender are heavenly scented. I found that I did not need to refrigerate the dough and could bake it immediately. Instead of regular salt I used crushed Fleur de Sel. Instead of a vanilla bean (mine had dried up) I used two teaspoons vanilla extract. I cut the shortbread into 24 squares.

Lychee Sorbet – This recipe is worth making because it is so exotic. If you don't have an ice cream machine you can also do a few tricks to make it work great. I froze the lychees and refrigerated the syrup. Then the next day I put everything into my food processor and spun it all around. It turned into a lovely Lychee Ice.

Twice-Baked Potatoes – Making this recipe takes a little time but these potatoes are delicious. You first need to bake the two russet potatoes, then you scoop them out and add in sour cream and cheddar cheese. Then you bake them again. I found that a 13 x 9 x 2-inch glass baking dish lined with foil kept clean up to a minimum.

Romaine Hearts with Warm Mushrooms and Truffle Vinaigrette – It is way worth the effort to order truffle zest and truffle oil for this recipe. The fresh romaine is so crunchy and the lemon based dressing is a perfect contrast to the other flavors. Parmesan cheese substituted great for the hard to find Pecorino Romano. This is the most delicious recipe in the book!

Each recipe has prep time, cooking time and how many servings plus Weight Watchers points per serving. Calories are also given per serving.

Some of the things you need to make the recipes include a pasta roller, pastry bag, high speed blender, microplane, Kitchen aid mixer, cast iron skillet, splatter guard (for tomato sauce), food processor (7-cup) and whisk for salad dressings.

The ingredients you might have to order include lavender flowers, anchovy paste, truffle zest, Old Bay seasoning, red curry paste, Thai fish sauce, tamarind concentrate, curry leaves, mascarpone cheese, star anise, oat flour, xanthan gum, truffle flour, fresh truffles, sea salt and frozen truffle cheese.

One recipe requires you to find a 5-gallon bucket to brine a 20-pound turkey. Most of the recipes serve 4, 6 or 8.

Some of the other recipes include:

Mushroom Soup
Maya's Smothered Chicken
Truffle Tortelloni
Fresh Cherry Crostata
Crab Cakes
Tuscan Kale and Apple Salad
Fettuccine Bolognese with Peas

What I really loved about this cookbook was all the personalized hand written notes by Oprah. You also learn a lot about Oprah's life and her struggles with weight loss. Oprah is a very creative writer and she excels at the headnotes. One story she tells is about how she first tasted a pasta dish at an Umbrian castle after a truffle hunt. This type of information makes the book so entertaining.

A lot of love and expertise went into this cookbook. I highly recommend it for adventurous home cooks who want to cook like a chef. I vote this one of the most exciting cookbooks I've ever found. The only thing I'd skip is the alcoholic drink recipes as alcohol causes disease.

Henry Ford for Kids: His Life and Ideas, with 21 Activities (For Kids series)
Henry Ford for Kids: His Life and Ideas, with 21 Activities (For Kids series)
Henry Ford was a major influencer of our nation and through his inventive drive pushed the world into its future. Most kids know of Henry Ford as the inventor of the automobile, but there was so much more to the man than that. As with anyone, he had his opinion regarding social and economic issues of his day and some agreed with him and others did not.
The depth of information Ronald A. Reis gives regarding the man and the inventor is astounding so that children would understand the whole person. He used wonderful photos and organized his information for easy understanding. The activities he includes are great for interaction for the children to really absorb the life and times of Henry Ford. Highly recommended for teaching children about Henry Ford in a fun and fantastic way!

Primus - Sailing the Seas of Cheese: Guitar and Bass Transcriptions (Play-It-Like-It-Is)
All the songs I am able to play (all songs being on a 4 sting), I knew previously how to play them by ear. I can tell you that all of the tabs in this book are almost exactly how I figured them out to be. Upon a greater reveiw of the songs, there are very little differences to how they are actualy played. Overall a great buy for any bassist, an excellent buy for any Les Claypool or Primus fan. Owning a 6 string will give you full use out of this book since about half of the songs are on a 6 string.
The Beatles Fab Four Miniature Guitar and Drums Set of 4 with Amp
The Beatles Fab Four Miniature Guitar and Drums Set of 4 with Amp
I have had my eye on this set for a year or more, waiting for the right moment to purchase before they are all gone. I will not purchase things on Ebay for inflated prices. All previous versions of this product did not include the amplifiers. I jumped at the chance to buy this one because it includes the famous Vox amplifiers. I learned to play guitar after seeing The Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show, so these instruments are deeply embedded in my memories, thoughts and emotions.

I should mention that they are very accurate in many ways...maybe too accurate. The folding legs on the cymbal stands will not hold the weight and stand without modifications. I simply cut cardboard circles slightly larger than the cymbal stand bases and cemented them with scotch tape over the legs (?) but without the cymbal while drying. Same for the stool. Several small detail pieces and a couple of screws fell off while I was handling the drums. You will have to repair these or, at the very least, realign some parts. Tuning keys on the guitars were skewed but easy to fix.

I don't play electric bass any more, so I would not buy a real Hofner. I have the less expensive version of the Gretsch but can't afford a real Rickenbacker. This is a way for me to enjoy the visual sensation of seeing these instruments which have powerful meaning for me. If you are a fan of The Beatles, you will like this. Just know that it does not arrive ready to display.

Bamboo Toothbrush 8 Pack - Sustainably Grown in Recycled Biodegradable Packaging
Bamboo Toothbrush 8 Pack - Sustainably Grown in Recycled Biodegradable Packaging
I have been using bamboo toothbrushes for about a year now and have used several different kinds as I tend to replace mine every 2 months or so. I had read about these online and after I started using a charcoal toothpaste, I wanted to complete the set with the charcoal bristles because, why not!?

First of all, the packaging that these toothbrushes are in, is probably the best packaging I have ever received a toiletry item in, over the course of my whole life. A beautiful and soft recycled box which holds 4 more smaller boxes for each toothbrush. It is the little steps like this that can make a product just so much more special. Once opening the box I am greeted with a super smooth and soft handle, no jagged edges like some have. The bristles all look pristine and have a great charcoal color to them. Then, I touched the bristles and holy cow! These bristles are softer than the bamboo sheets on my bed!!! I am not kidding, I just stood there and felt the bristles for a good minute or so. Most other bamboo toothbrushes, or even most electric toothbrushes take a good week or so of breaking in so that the bristles don't hurt anymore, but out of the box, this was ready to go.

That night I had the best brush of my life and I can now say with confidence that I found the ultimate toothbrush.

Imagine by Rubie's Child's Thanos Infinity Gauntlet Set Costume, Small
My 6 year old grandson liked it but it was a little small for him (he is average sized) and the glove is not a solid piece but rather a piece that covers the front of your arm with elastic in the back to hold it on. It’s not bad for the price but I was disappointed in the quality.

We need the rest of the episodes! This show gives my life direction and meaning. I feel like my life is on hold as I await crucial information that can only been seen in the remaining episodes. Do Billy and Courtney's parents reconcile? Do Matt and Coach Williams ever resolve their differences over Matt's constant "hotdogging" at basketball practice? Does Matt enter a treatment facility to address his boozing? Do the characters manage to ever finish one of their non-carbonated soft drinks at The Avalon? Is Hillside the origin of most local current recycling programs? How many more random people will show up unannounced at Dylan's garage? Does Jake finally get some? Does Ashley continue to wear that pastel pink jacket almost every episode? I don't know and neither will anyone else unless the rest of the episodes are released!
The Captain's Daughter (New York Review Books Classics)
The Captain's Daughter (New York Review Books Classics)
The Captain's Daughter is a novella published by Pushkin shortly before his fatal duel. It relates the adventures in southern Russia of a fictitious young noble, Pyotr, at the time of the Pugachov Rebellion, the Cossack/peasant/Old Believer uprising of 1773-75. Pushkin had carefully researched the rebellion and earlier published a monograph on the subject, The History of Pugachov.

Pyotr is assigned as a young army officer to an inadequately defended fort in the rebel area. The fort is attacked and falls to Pugachov. The commander of the fort, the Captain of the story title, is amongst those immediately executed by Pugachov. Pyotr is spared because of a kindness he showed a peasant fellow-traveler whilst on his way to the fort. The fellow-traveler proves to be Pugachov, who remembers him favorably. The Captain's daughter, Masha, whom Pyotr wishes to marry, is hidden by a servant, but thereby becomes subject to the depredations of another young officer, Shvabrin, who opportunistically declares his support for Pugachov and is given command of the fort. Masha therefore stands in urgent need of rescue.

Those who have not read The Captain's Daughter before have a pleasurable read ahead of them. But the story has long been available in other English translations, so many readers of this new edition will already be familiar with it.

Why re-read the story, and why buy a new edition to do so? The story definitely justifies re-reading. Chandler writes that it 'may be the most subtly constructed of all 19th century Russian novels.' That is high praise indeed, and Pushkin's story is certainly nothing like so simple as it at first appears.

Chandler also writes that individual characters in The Captain's Daughter anticipate counterparts in War and Peace; and that Pushkin anticipates Tolstoy's entire philosophy of history. The latter is a huge claim, and I for one would relish a detailed discussion of the subject.

We don't get that here, but we do get significant help towards new insights into The Captain's Daughter, Pushkin as a serious historian, the art of translation, and more.

Chandler's essay on aspects of translation, Coats and Turncoats, will surely become a classic on its subject, essential reading for all students of translation, and indeed all with any interest in the subject. Taking The Captain's Daughter as its text, it brings to our attention several aspects of the work that might otherwise have been missed.

This edition also includes a chapter that Pushkin omitted from the final version of The Captain's Daughter but nevertheless carefully preserved. Chandler writes that it is 'of interest primarily for its vivid and historically accurate picture of the latter stages of the Pugachov Rebellion'. A rattling good yarn in itself, I recommend that neither that nor any other part of this excellent edition should be skipped.

Winter eines Lebens: Die Clifton Saga 7 - Roman (Die Clifton-Saga) (German Edition)
Ich habe - innerhalb von 4 Wochen - alle sieben Bücher gelesen, bzw. verschlungen. Eine unbedingt empfehlenswerte Familiengeschichte über mehrere Generationen. Der Schreibstil von J. Archer gefällt mir sehr. Was natürlich äußerst geschickt eingefädelt ist vom Autor ist das jeweilige Ende eines Bandes. In einem höchst spannenden Abschnitt endet die Folge, und ich denke, ich bin nicht die einzige Leserin, die SOFORT die nächste Fortsetzung heruntergeladen hat. Für mich hat es sich - auch im Nachhinein - unbedingt gelohnt. Mit einem Augenzwinkern habe ich mich streckenweise an "die Bösen" aus dem "Denver-Clan" erinnert gefühlt, weil intrigiert wird, was das Zeug hält, aber ohne den Nervenkitzel wären wohl nur 3 Bände erforderlich gewesen. Der Unterhaltungswert ist mir unbedingt 5 Sterne wert.
The Case of the Postponed Murder (Perry Mason Series Book 82)
The Case of the Postponed Murder (Perry Mason Series Book 82)
Mason's client has a problem. He comes home to find barbed wire strung through his house, a sexy woman in a bikini on the one side, complete with a court order allowing her to be there - and himself out of half of his own house. It seems the man who built the house put it partly on his own, and partly on his wife's separate property with the assurance he'd get clear title.
Things get worse when the man ends up dead with a knife in his back - in his client's side of the house. Caught in a tangle, his client refuses to give his story to everybody - including Mason. It's up to Perry to clear his client's name by creating reasonable doubt - and capitalizing on a mistake by the prosecuting attorney.

Chinese Fairy Tales and Legends: A Gift Edition of 73 Enchanting Chinese Folk Stories and Fairy Tales
Im in love with the book. As a bilingual, I found it tremendously interesting to read the fairy tales I knew since little in another language. Its very obvious that the translator has put a lot of works into this book since I found the most popular fairy tales in here. Plus, there is short explaination at the beginning of each story for those who are not familiar with the culture which I myself aldo found very helpful.
Would recommend if you wanna know a bit more about Chines folktale!
The Berenstain Bears No Girls Allowed
The Berenstain Bears No Girls Allowed
We love ALL of the Berenstain Bear books, but this is one of our favorites. In this story, Sister Bear is a tag-along with Brother and his friends and they don't mind until she starts winning all of the games and is a boastful. They begin to exclude her and make a clubhouse in which girls are not allowed. She is upset and makes her own clubhouse for girls. The always wise Mama Bear explains that she might not have been excluded for being a girl, but because of how she acted when she won. Sister decides to include the boys and they reciprocate. Great book for the stage when boys and girls realize they are different and begin to exclude each other.

In diesem fünften Teil der Reihe um Doktor Sternau und die Familie Rodriganda finden sich die Fäden der einzelnen Erzählstränge aus Deutschland, Spanien, Mexiko und sogar Afrika abschließend zusammen. Leider ist Mays Sprache für moderne, insbesondere jugendliche Leser etwas umständlich und anstrengend zu lesen. Seine Bücher verdienen aber auch heutzutage wegen ihrer menschenfreundlichen Philosophie mehr Beachtung und einen höheren Bekanntheitsgrad.
A Grief Observed
A Grief Observed
I was first signposted to this book nearly 18 years ago by a bereavement counsellor Maxine - who helped more than she knew or I ever told her!

At the time I really couldn't see my way out of almost stifling grief - but she gave me a copy of this book and suggested I read it - and pop a yellow sticky in the pages that most resonated with me.

A month or so on she suggested I re-read it and do the yellow sticky thing again - and already I could see I was moving on - if only through the stages of grief at that time. I hadn't believed it possible.

Several readings later - loads more yellow stickies - and months passed - and I finally understood what she'd been hoping for.

As hard as it seems - and as hard as it is to see - we do all move from where we started.

I found some of the book - especially the more religious bits hard going - and skipped over them - whilst appreciating even at the time that they might bring some comfort to others.

CS Lewis - wrote this book after the death of his love - portrayed in the film 'Shadowlands' - and despite being a rather restrained individual and theology boffin - went on to care for her son and from there we get the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe series - which made many kids like me really enjoy books.

I still have that original copy with all of the yellow stickies - and treasure it always as it tells my journey back to the land of the living far better than I could!

I've also bought copies for and passed on the yellow sticky advice on a very few appropriate occasions in the last 18 years. It has always helped.

A truly great book - inspirational and untold help.

If you ever find yourself in need of such a prop - well worth buying - and whilst the paper version and the yellow stickies - tried and tested - bookmarks or notes on kindle probably do the same thing.

I've just looked it out again on the recent death of a close friend's husband - and will be passing on a copy again.
The Hatching: A Novel (The Hatching Series Book 1)
The Hatching: A Novel (The Hatching Series Book 1)
I'm finding it tough to write this review because I LOVED this novel. It's the most fun I've had with a book in a long time. The writing is taut, fast-paced and page turning. It put me in mind of Michael Crichton and Dan Brown - both masters of books with short, highly-readable chapters that end in cliffhangers and keep you reading more than you intended to at half past midnight. So why only three stars? In a nutshell - it's because of all the loose ends. This isn't a novel that's tied up by the conclusion. In fact, it's only getting going towards the end (not in terms of pace and excitement, but it terms of more plot that's coming) - and this is borne out by the fact that The Hatching looks to be part of (what I'm guessing) will be a trilogy. I got to the end on my Kindle and saw that I could pre-order the next instalment, Skitter, which is due out in April 2017. So a five month wait at the point of review. I find this a little naughty - some people don't like trilogies or don't want to have to invest time in knowing how it all pans out over the course of a few books. Some readers like to know that the end really is the end. It wouldn't be so bad if this was the type of trilogy that could be read as a stand alone - satisfying those readers who don't want to take the experience further, but leaving more for those who do.

To be honest, I suspected this might be the case. There is a huge cast of characters and the novel skips around between different people and places - each chapter focuses on a different group and area. There's Mike Rich (an FBI agent - a character who crops up throughout the novel); There's Melanie (an entomologist and spider expert); then there's Manny (her ex husband, who's also the right-hand man to President Pilgrim (a female president - nice touch BTW)); there's Kim and her team of Marines; Gordo, Amy, Shotgun and Fred, survivalists who've hunkered down in Desperation, California, and there's Aonghas and his fiancée, Thuy, who are visiting Aonghas's grandfather on a remote island on the Outer Hebrides. There's more beside. If you're not keen on novels that skip around, this won't be for you. I don't mind this though - and I do feel that the 'main' characters (such as Mike Rich, Manny and Melanie) were well drawn. Some may feel they're a bit flat - but let's be fair; this isn't a character novel. It's a plot-driven novel. However, as I was getting over halfway through the novel, I started to think that the author was not going to be able to wrap it up in the page count remaining. Right towards the end (with about 10 mins Kindle reading time left), the chapters are super-short and really jump around - and I knew, with a sinking heart, that it wasn't going to be wrapped up. For characters like Aonghas and Thuy, the novel hadn't really even touched them (in relation to the impact of the spider invasion) - so I can only assume there will be more focus on their story in the next novel. With hindsight, a lot of the novel began to seem like scene setting for the subsequent novels. Also, it was never really explained how the 10,000 year old calcified egg sack from Peru was linked to the sudden emergence of the 'modern' spiders. I do hope this eventually gets tied up, as there was no answer in this novel.

I think, to be fair to readers, this should have been a novel that's double its current length. I know for new writers, it's more of a gamble that people will read 700 or 800 page novels. Stephen King can write novels of any length he wants, because he's got a loyal readership. Maybe it's harder for new authors (although Terry Hayes managed it with I Am Pilgrim, as did Joel Dicker with The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair - and a number of other emerging authors). But okay - maybe the author didn't want to send out a doorstop first time. In which case, I do wish the novel had been tied up more at the end. Sure, write a sequel - but either make sure the initial book is stand-alone, or let readers know in advance that this is going to require an investment of time beyond the current novel. I didn't love Hugh Howey's Wool and never went on to read the other novels in the series - but I felt satisfied with the conclusion of Wool.

So, this seems like a lot of criticism. But there was a lot to commend this novel too. Like I say - I loved it. I'm quite the arachnophobe, so did worry about reading it. But then I figured - hey, it's meant to be scary and icky (I was never scared reading Herbert's Rats because I like rats). In fact, it wasn't as bad as I expected because the spider action is so (hopefully!) out of the ordinary. This novel would, hands down, make a superb film. It simply HAS to be adapted! I read very widely - all sorts of genres - and this is an honestly fun experience. It's not high literature, it's never going to win the Booker Prize - but it does what it does exceptionally well. It's a five-star read, with stars knocked off simply because it left a lot hanging. But for a book of its genre, it's up there. It is so well written and can hold its head up alongside other fast-paced commercial fiction (like Grisham and Crichton). Reading this novel was a bit like going to the cinema - pure entertainment.

If you're into rollercoaster novels that do skip between places and people, or love end-of-world scenarios, or simply want to torment yourself with rampaging spiders on the loose, then this is the novel for you. And if it was clearer up-front that it was Part 1, then it'd be a definite five-star book.

This is worth buying and well read by Richard E Grant. For fans of Ken Folletts 'Kingsbridge' series this is a handy abridged version of the first two books in the series. I am listening to it in anticipation of the third book 'Columns of Fire' due to be released in hardbook very soon.

Bleach, Volume 10
As the father of a teenage boy I wanted to buy him something he was "in to" and I knew he had a number of these "books".
My initial reaction was one of surprise to find that it consisted mainly of pictures, more a comic than a book. Not the most literary of content but regardless he seems to enjoy them.
The illustrations are well executed and brightly coloured. Some of the images of women are not only rather racy but at times border on the semi-pornagraphic. Had I have known this I might have thought more carefully about purchasing it for an impressionable teenager.
I haven't tried to read the story in any detail so this is something of a superficial impression, but hopefully might help to inform other parents considering buying this for their offspring.

I have gotten patches before that looked pretty good in the photo, but then you get them and the quality of thread used or whatever, just isn't up to snuff. But this item... so nice, so well done and SO cute !! My son got this as a Christmas stocking gift and he immediately started showing me where I can sew it for him ! I would definitely order from this company again, and can't wait to see what else they offer !

I agree with the other reviewers. This is an excellent drive for the price. I also have the Samsung T5 which is great, but this drive is better value for money. If you plan to use this drive on a Windows computer, setting up the drive can be a little confusing, so I hope the following helps:

WINDOWS USERS: This drive arrives formatted for APPLE computers. When you plug it into a PC (Windows 7/10 etc) you will hear the drive connect, but no drive letter will appear, so you can't access the drive straightaway.

These leads some to think the drive is broken / not working. Not true, the drive needs to be reformatted to work on a PC but the way to do this is as follows:

Ensure the drive is plugged in then...

1.) RIGHT CLICK on the Windows icon in the bottom left corner of your taskbar
2.) Select DISK MANAGEMENT from the menu
3.) You will see the G-Drive listed (usually as DISK 2)
4.) Look at the GRAPHIC of the hard drive and RIGHT CLICK on the PARTITION (The largest bit)
5.) Choose the option to DELETE PARTITION. Once complete it will say UNALLOCATED SPACE
6.) RIGHT CLICK on the Unallocated Space and select FORMAT and format it as NTFS (This is the only option available for PCs)
7.) You can choose to QUICK FORMAT although I prefer to do a full format to set the disk up.
8.) At the end of the FORMAT process Windows will assign a drive letter to the drive and it will open (D: / E: etc..)
9.) If you now EJECT the drive using the icon on your task bar and plug it back in, it will open as a Windows drive with a Drive letter.

Sorry if the above all sounds complicated, it is easier to do it that it appears!

You then have a brilliant SSD drive to use for all your PC / Windows files.

Product is incredible cheap. The plastic is weak and a part of it is broken. It doesn't expand properly when you throw it up.. You have to pull it apart slightly and then throw it for it to expand. I bought it as a gift for my son and for my neice and it didn't arrive any sort of proper or respectable packaging. It was literally shrink wrapped without even a name of the company. Unfortunately, it was an epic fail :/

Graphics and Title ("Morec EV Charger NEMA6-20P, Portable EVSE Level 2 Type1 SAE J1772 Plug 8m (26 feet), 220V-240V, 16A, Home Electric Vehicle Charging Station Compatible with All EV Cars …") are misleading. This is actually a DUAL Level 1 AND Level 2 Charger with a DUAL input voltage of 120 - 240 VAC. I just received it, set it up and have enormous hopes it will last long into the future. Works like a charm with 120 VAC input, was easy to install, has clear and concise documentation with lovely drawings and sketches. Build quality appears to be excellent. My only concern is a promised 3-year warranty on Amazon but the documentation declares a 2-year warranty. In the event of an issue my expectation is the longer Amazon warranty will prevail. Hope they sell a lot of these so the price point remains low. Will update this review should there be future issues.

Diesen super niedlichen Kigurumi habe ich mir für Karneval bestellt und ich muss wirklich sagen, für den Preis kann man wirklich nicht meckern. Der Stoff ist gut verarbeitet, flauschig, sauber und hält schön warm! Ich denke nicht, dass man zur Karnevalszeit (Februar/März) mit diesem Kigurumi frieren wird!
Er fällt meiner Meinung nach noch größer aus als zuerst gedacht.
Auf jeden Fall bin ich super glücklich mit diesem Produkt. Vielen Dank für die außerdem sehr schnelle Lieferung (2 Tage nach Bestellung) ! :)

Heck, dollar for dollar this is the GAMING rig to beat.

Item of Note:
There IS a 2.5” hard drive caddy/cable with this model. Also the 2nd M.2 slot does show up if you put a NVME in there (not sure about SATA m.2 as I didn’t have one to test). It is standard 80mm size, same as the main slot, and seems to have extra room above/below it so I believe something double sided would fit, as would something with a SMALL heatsink on top (like say the Adata Swordfish one).

Screen:
Most of the other gaming laptops in the $750-1100 range have dim ~250 nit screens with awful <50% color gamuts. This one, 300nit rated (~330 actual based on reviews) 144hz and 100% srgb. It is striking, you won’t find a screen like this in this price range elsewhere.

Power:
Then you have a 8c/16t 4800H processor, which netted just under 4700 on Cinebench R20 in Performance Mode. For reference, my desktop running a Ryzen 3700X 8c/16t scores between 4600 and 4800 depending on background software and performance settings.

Memory:
The ram is ideal, 3200mhz, 16gb, you don’t want any less because that’s the lower limit for gaming and productivity, and you don’t want any more because each 8gb is about 3watts of power consumption. Not sure if it supports 32gb, I can’t see 16gb being the limit but the Lenovo Support responders in Q&A here seem to think it is.

Battery.:
It would be nice if they had any prebuilt options with the 80wh version, but they don’t, and I took a star off for that. Most of us would gladly pay an extra $50+ for that option. And I don’t feel like waiting 5+ weeks (2 months? 3?) for a custom one just to get it. That being said, with proper settings this 60wh can be sufficient.

*Quiet Mode (fn+q until power led turns blue)
*Battery Save mode on (click on battery icon, slide all the way to left)
*Hybrid Mode on (this is ESSENTIAL, it shuts off the dedicated graphics card when not needed)
*In Advanced Power Settings, adjust all of the AMD, Wireless, etc settings to their most ‘battery saving’ option

Doing all that I’m getting over 5 hours browsing the internet, longer if I have the internet open and am mostly working in excel or word (ie: normal school work/reports for office/etc). For instance, editting this review in the Amazon window, 4.1 hours remaining w/ 55% (7.5 hours total est). 7-8 hours watching Youtube @720p in Edge. Brightness at whatever battery saver drops it to when it’s on high to begin with. I intend on trying to swap in an 80wh when the parts are available.

Build quality:
The fit/finish and overall feel of the unit hits above its price point. The keyboard is exceptional for productivity, aside from the slightly cramped numpad. The touchpad is responsive. The rear I/O ports are great for desktop duty. But lets be real, Lenovo doesn’t exactly have a great reputation when it comes to customer service and turnaround times for repairs. None of the laptop manufacturers do though really, save Apple. My last Lenovo, a Y700, lasted over 5 years. I figure, get it, do some stress testing on the processor/GPU (Cinebench, Furmark), watch some movies and do some white/black backgrounds to check for dead pixels, and cross your fingers. To extend warranty through them is $50/100/175 for 1/2/3 extra years respectively, I personally am planning at least the $50 for an extra year.

Heat:
There is one drawback, this thing gets hot. I was expecting better thermals as I tested out a Legion 5 with the 4600H + 1650ti combo a while back. I would say this one runs ~5c average hotter across the board, and will spike to 95-100C+ if you’re doing something intense like Cinebench or Flight Sim 2020. In Flight Sim, average CPU temps over a 20 min flight were ~76c, CPU Die avg was ~85C. Temps are lower playing less demanding games, and even normally demanding games like AC Origins CPU avg was low 70’s, so not terrible. I spent some time looking into this, and apparently these hopped up gaming laptops hitting 90-100C is ‘okay’, even if I don’t really like or trust it. Also, the only option I know of that actually runs cooler than this with similar hardware is the Omen 15 AMD, so if temps are a priority may want to check that platform out. The Asus Tuf’s are as hot if not hotter, and the Dell G5 SE is a small portable sun. However, you do get something for this heat, the aforementioned Cinebench scores blow the competition out of the water, I still can’t believe it’s on par with my desktop processor.

Final Thoughts:
This thing runs warm, looks good (if you like the aesthetic), has a phenomenal spec sheet for the price, and has best in class screen for a non special-order low-mid budget prebuilt. Would recommend, with the one slight caveat regarding heat.

De’Longhi Delonghi ECAM650.55.MS Kaffeevollautomat
Ho comprato questa macchina e usata per circa un mese, pagata 1050 euro. La macchina non vale assolutamente la spesa , il caffè è molto lento e lungo anche se si impostano i parametri al minimo di dose e massima ntnsità di sapore, provato sia con caffè macinato sia con chicchi da macinare ma il risultato è sempre scadente. Per quanto riguarda i cappuccini per le prime sittimane sembrava andasse benone, ma negli ultimi giorni ha cominciato a fare dei cappuccini inbevibili praticamente scaldando troppo il latte usciva una sorta di poltiglia ( simile alla consistenza delle uova strapazzate). Per fortuna amazon offre il servizio di restituzione. In conclusione prodotto assolutamnete non valido
Office Chair, Ergonomics Mesh Chair Computer Chair Desk Chair High Back Chair w/Adjustable Headrest and Armrests - Grey
Office Chair, Ergonomics Mesh Chair Computer Chair Desk Chair High Back Chair w/Adjustable Headrest and Armrests - Grey
This chair is incredible. I have been spoiled by Herman Miller, so of course anything but is going to be hard to compare; HOWEVER, this chair is amazing. For what it costs, it is phenomenal. Make sure to purchase the velvet pads for the arm rests and the 5-pack of skateboard wheels (it will fly through 6" shag carpet with no problems).

Having the back of a 150 year old person (DDD, herniated discs, bulging discs, complete destruction of the facet joints at L4-L5 from arthritis, spinal stenosis, osteoarthritis from the coccyx all the way up the spine to the cervical region, musculoskelatal spasms that don't stop, etc.), this was a great chair for my home office. The lumbar is great, the mesh back is great, and the neck support is great. I knew this going in but the one thing the chair is lacking is the ability to ADJUST THE LUMBAR SUPPORT. If you get this chair, please know this going in...but so far, it has been amazing for me. I'm 5'10", 186 lbs, and it fits me like a glove. The downfall of ordering a chair via the internet is that you have NO CLUE how it is going to work for you as an individual coupled with the fact that you have to assemble it. What happens if you buy it, assemble it, and it just doesn't work for you?

Assembly - a joke. This is the FIRST company that has EVER included extra screws as part of the kit. After everything is out of the box, separated, and you have the screws / allen wrench lined-up, this thing takes less than 30 minutes to get together from a pile of pieces to an amazing comfortable / supportive office chair. I am able to work from home sometimes not getting out of this chair for more than 6 hours b/c it truly is that supportive and comfortable for me and the extreme chronic back problems that I have.

It may not be the right chair for everyone but hey, there are THOUSANDS of office chairs that you can buy. For me, I got lucky and bought it based on all of the reviews that I read. I did know that the lumbar was NON-ADJUSTABLE but it is working out for me great. Is it a $1500 Herman Miller? Of course not, but for less than $200.00 it might very well be about as close as you are going to get.

Kudos to Smugdesk for an amazing chair. Happy to answer any questions that anyone may have and NO, I am not getting paid to do so, there is nothing in it for me...I just want to help others that are in a similar situation to me if I am able to do so.

BUY THIS CHAIR (as long as you know you do not need to adjust the lumbar support).
Regaliz naturall suave Panda, 7 onzas
Regaliz naturall suave Panda, 7 onzas
If you compare this to any other licorice brands, the biggest difference is that the other brands double up on anise oil which is so overpowering smell and taste that it leaves a really bad after taste in your mouth, whereas the Panda ones are more balanced with the licorice extract.

I personally much prefer the more balanced taste that doesn't leave a bad after taste, which is why this product is so great!

The only problem I had with this product that took out one star, was similar to what other people have said: some of the candies inside had broken apart and mushed a little bit. Good thing that didn't really affect the taste, but it was just slightly annoying to eat.
