Think, Act, and Invest Like Warren Buffett: The Winning Strategy to Help You Achieve Your Financial and Life Goals
Think, Act, and Invest Like Warren Buffett: The Winning Strategy to Help You Achieve Your Financial and Life Goals
I've read 9 of Larry Swedroe's 12 books, and every one was filled with valuable information from front to back. His latest, "Think, Act, and Invest Like Warren Buffett", is no exception. Larry shares conclusive evidence that backs up Warren Buffett's own recommendation that "by periodically investing in an index fund the know-nothing investor can actually outperform most investment professionals". While it's not impossible for actively managed funds to outperform passively managed index funds, Larry demonstrates that it is unwise to try your luck with actively managed. Larry also covers the importance of a well-rounded financial plan that takes into account your willingness, need, and ability to take an appropriate level of risk for your unique situation. He then takes the reader through various investment portfolio building blocks, as well as portfolio maintenance techniques and tips on working with financial advisors. Toward the end of the book he wraps it all together with his 30 rules of prudent investing, all concisely written and absolutely correct.

Larry Swedroe is a very knowledgeable finance expert, he's tremendously gifted with the written word, and he is a champion of individual investors everywhere. His writing distills key takeaways from the last 60 years of finance research into easily understandable prose. My recommendation: pick up a copy of this easy-to-read book and follow its guidelines for decades to come. You'll be glad you did.

The Essays of Warren Buffett: Lessons for Investors and Managers
The Essays of Warren Buffett: Lessons for Investors and Managers
I enjoyed this book. Warren Buffett stands for something far greater than himself or the wealth he has generated. He is in what he does rather countercyclical, rather old fashioned, and fabulously good.

These essays introduce us to Buffett's way of thinking and doing business. There's a lot to learn from both aspects. Some of the book is rather technical, but most is straightforward enough, and I found many places where he made me think. I think our world at many levels- individual, corporate, government would be better if we adopted many of Buffett's ideas.

Buffett is an example of thinking from the ultimate to the proximate. He makes decisions for the long term, based on value. He cannot be bothered chasing the ups and downs of the market. It's like trying to stand still on a rolling wave. Prices go up, prices come down, the long investor treats them both the same and focuses way beyond the short term. Buffett is interested in the fundamental value of a business- does it provide worthwhile goods and services? Does it do it well? Is it well led and well managed? Is this likely to continue through time? Can he understand the value that the business offers to its customers and shareholders? If he can then he's likely to invest. In this he's exemplifying the principles of The Three Rules: How Exceptional Companies Think, and revenue before cost. It's not that he doesn't see cost- it's that he puts cost within the context of value, and more especially the context of value over time.

He's scathing about short term speculation, complex financial instruments, short term thinking, responding to mood. His comments about buying cheaply are sharp. Something may well be cheap for a reason- and trying to make it better will likely be a losing struggle. If something is unintelligible it's probably concealing a lie, and an untrustworthy person behind it. If a manager is promising that they will make the numbers, sooner or later they will be tempted up the numbers. We live in a short term appearance world and pathologies such as probophilia (as described in Between Health and Illness: Explorations in and around medicineafflict too many institutions.

Buffett is an example of a man who knows what he is doing, why he is doing it, and what outcome he wants. He's a straightforward, honest guide to the benefits of thinking long term, and to the benefits of thinking about what value is and where it is to be found. He challenges the modern world with its immediacy, its distractions, its fads, its madnesses of crowds. He takes us back to a much slower paced world, and we'd be better if we learned from him. He teaches us to look for true value and the long term.

There's much in this book about good personal and corporate governance, about discernment and about living life well. Readers will learn a lot from Buffett's patterns of thought and action.
Reconciliation Day (Bibliomysteries Book 30)
Reconciliation Day (Bibliomysteries Book 30)
Carter is a Bram Stoker collector/fanatic of questionable ethics. His purpose is to acquire the mythical first draft of Dracula with its additional texts that describe the Count's library and includes an "alternate ending." His quest takes him to Romania where he thinks the "Blue volume" is hidden. When he gets there all he has to do is steal it. But this is Romania, a place where gypsies issue curses and the legend of Vlad the Impaler is very alive.

I like the concept of the Bibliomystery series since I am something of a bibliophile. I take it that the purpose of the series is to take a text and write a story around it; in this case, the text is Dracula by Bram Stoker.

We are treated to short chapters from the alternative, mythical version of Stoker's novel, which were pretty interesting. There was also a lot of biographical about Stoker and bibliographical information about Dracula. Unfortunately, it seems that all of this detail is hogswallop. Stoker was not impoverished; although he died in poverty because of his ill health, he actually had a good living running a playhouse for Henry Irving, who the most famous actor of his time, which involved him in traveling around the world, as part of which he met American presidents and was friends with Arthur Conan Doyle and James Whistler. Stoker didn't write Dracula in a competition with a swindler; he worked on Dracula for seven years. It is true that the original manuscript of Dracula - then entitled "The Undead" - was found in 1980, but it was found in Pennsylvania. The typescript was purchased by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, not returned to Romania.

Messing with factual details like that is unfortunate.

Nonetheless, the story seemed to be moving along, until it neared its conclusion. What happened at the end? Was it a hallucination or something else, I couldn't tell. All in all, I found the ending to be a disappointment.

Your mileage may differ.
Zucked: Waking Up to the Facebook Catastrophe
Zucked: Waking Up to the Facebook Catastrophe
I won't regurgitate the contents of this book as they are well-covered in other reviews. It was a good read, though at times I found the 'hip' right-on tone slightly irritating - but that might just have been the transatlantic effect. The book confirmed all of my reservations about social media and added a few more to keep me awake at night.

This subject is now going viral (as it were) and there is plenty other material available, as tecchie types wake up to the dangers of the god they once worshipped - and at whose feet a vast proportion of the world sit in rapt adoration. I've come late to the SM party and I'm not convinced I want to stay. This book certainly wouldn't encourage me

The takeaway from Zuked (for me) is that we don't have to be in thrall, we can live perfectly social and meaningful lives without the ubiquitous device near to hand. For me that's no big deal. I'm tech-light. But I fear for the generations that know no different, and the author paints a grim picture of the addictive and intrusive power of algorithms.

The last chapter in the book offers some real solutions as follows:
Accept on-line platforms for what they are and not what you'd like them to be (ie don't take them too seriously or believe the content)
Use politicians to effect change at the highest levels, and utilise the consensus among voters
Lobby members of Congress (US) or MPs in parliament
Focus on 'surveillance capitalism' when lobbying - eg in relation to healthcare data, and personal data
Educate politicians in how platforms exploit their participants
Do not babysit children with phones or tablets eg UTube Kids has age-inappropriate content
Increase the age at which children can be targeted by internet platforms from 13 to 18
Put pressure on elected representatives to minimize data harvesting, especially from third parties
Give individuals control over their own data - ie treat it as a human right
Tighten up electoral structures so that bad actors can't harm the democratic process
Prohibit micro-targeted advertising in the context of elections
Change the relationship with technology, give up Google, FB and Twitter if they are becoming addictive
Consider Apple products as an alternative - Apple Maps, Microsoft Office apps for Mac, Apple Pay
Apple gives priority to customer privacy
Avoid Amazon Alexa - no privacy guarantees
Challenge the use of educational devices in school and introduce children to natural activities outside, and healthy social interaction

That's a very superficial resume, but it gives a flavour of what the author is trying to achieve.

I had only one beef with this book and perhaps it's not a fair one, as I've noticed a similar bias in other excellent reads. In his analysis of the 2016 US election (and this book is geared completely to a US readership) the author tends to lend too much weight to the interference by Russian agents - as a deciding factor in the election of Trump. I think this is an unfortunate bias, not because I disbelieve that the tampering happened, but because that was not the full story.

My personal opinion of the POTUS is pretty robust (ie not in his favour) but I worry that some intelligent writers are a little too ready to believe that this or any other election result was down to foreign intervention. By implication this makes a mockery of the voting choices of the American electorate. How much they were influenced by technology is hard to say, but there were other forces at play. The same assumption has been made, in a different context about Brexit. I think the author betrays a lack of empathy with voters in these elections who didn't share his political preference. My point is not political, but about the need for veracity, and for tech writers not to make value judgements outside their area of expertise.

For the record I was horrified when Trump was elected, and had a much more nuanced view of our exit from the EU. It's a small point but it caused me to dock one point from what is otherwise a tour de force.
To Pixar and Beyond: My Unlikely Journey with Steve Jobs to Make Entertainment History
To Pixar and Beyond: My Unlikely Journey with Steve Jobs to Make Entertainment History
An awesome business book written by the brilliant Lawrence Levy, who served as CFO of Pixar, giving an inside peek into the transformative journey of Pixar from a confused state and an uncertain future with $50 million in negative; into an outstanding storytelling creative studio making multi-billion dollars via sales of movie tickets, merchandising, DVD sales etc.

Steve Jobs spotted Lawrence in a magazine and kept him in records. A few years later he calls Lawrence and invites him to visit Pixar and consider joining Pixar to help hone the strategy, run the business and make it public. And that's where the story begins and progresses on how Steve Jobs, Ed Catmull, John Lasseter, Lawrence Levy and team and associates of Pixar made the necessary strategic and creative choices in the background of several challenges and survival pressures.

This is a must read for those who have loved the work of Pixar, the various movies and characters they built, the toys, fish, monsters, cars superheroes. And for those who have not watched Pixar movies, they will love the book too as the author takes us through a vivid journey of his various interactions with Steve Jobs and team that led to one of Hollywood's greatest success story.

Entrepreneurs and Professionals will cherish this book for the multiple snippets and insights it offers in wide areas such as

+ Effective Collaboration
+ Smart Negotiation and Leveraging Strengths
+ Fighting for injustice done to team and giving them due respect and credit
+ Dealing with a Tough Boss like Steve Jobs
+ Reflecting on Life's Purpose to plan the future direction
+ Not giving up when the chips are down
+ Important Role of a Change Agent and Mentors and Back-office team
+ Culture Building and Team Friendship
+ Attracting and Retaining Talent
+ Creativity Before Business, Betting on the Creative Talent in spite of the risks
+ Dealing with Investment Bankers
+ Business Models of the Entertainment Industry
+ Leadership
+ "The Middle Way" to deal with life and business

I loved the book and plan to read it again, and I bet you will like this well chronicled journey of Pixar's struggles and success. Thank you Lawrence Levy for sharing this fascinating story.
The Virgin Way: Everything I Know About Leadership
The Virgin Way: Everything I Know About Leadership
Richard Branson undoubtedly has some world class leadership skills. This book has some small gems in which will I'll remember when I'm working with teams at work and when interacting with people generally.

one thing I wasn't so keen on is the narration style - it's a bit long winded and sometimes it takes a while to get to the point. It may also be a bit simplistic for some tastes as it's Richard talking about his childhood, early days and thoughts more than more detailed business techniques. I contrasted it with 'The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People' which is crammed full of specific tools to communicate more effectively.

In summary I quite liked it and got a few really helpful gems which made the price easily worth it but it may not be for you if you're looking for a more technical or more detailed business advice book.

Until Today!: Devotions for Spiritual Growth and Peace of Mind
Until Today!: Devotions for Spiritual Growth and Peace of Mind
This book has helped me through the toughest of times. I really love how it's not all "you're wonderful and perfect" it forces you to look at how your actions, environment and entire being contributes to your situation. Sometimes the moments in are lives are beyond our control but we have control over how we react to it. And this book really forces us to do that. I'm a massive fan and what's even better is that you can go back and revise the devotions dependent on what you are going through at that very moment. I like to pray/meditate after reading and actually use the words to improve everything I do. This book really forces you to live in the now and be mindful. It's not a religious book yet it is you can apply it to whatever faith system you follow if you are religious/atheist/agnostic/spiritual. I can't recommend it enough for people who are going through a tough time or maybe just want to self improve and feel more present in their lives!

This book has become a staple in our household that I have gifted, and re-gifted to so many people!

If you are interested, the audio version of the book if read by Oprah herself, and gives you a different take on what she's emphasizing through each lesson.

I recommend you read this book one lesson at a time and keep re-reading it for a few days until you've caught on to what she's trying to teach. That way you can really internalize the book and enjoy it throughout the entire year.

I love it so much, that it has become a routine to read this book at least once a year and it's cheaper on Amazon then anywhere else I've been able to find so far.

Oh my bad I was looking for more of the coconut flavor that's associated with Pina Colada flavor this is not that. Plus after opening it you are supposed to use it within two weeks. The flavor was not that enticing that I finished the bottle in two weeks. Definitely not a repurchase for me. I threw mine away so this was a waste of money for me. It says Chai Pina Colada so there you have it.
Wolverine Men's W03122 Durashock SR Boot, Brown, 11.5 M US
Wolverine Men's W03122 Durashock SR Boot, Brown, 11.5 M US
Over the years, I've gone through two pairs of these boots working construction. Needless to say, I was almost heartborken when the sole (only the sole, not the upper) on my last pair started to break down. I'm no longer in construction, but I have a "honey-do" list as long as my forearm. So, I did not hesitate to pick up another pair of these Wolverine boots when it was time to retire my last pair. Now, I wouldn't normally drop over $100 on a pair of footwear that won't help me earn a paycheck. However, my feet, knees, and back are worth it. There is literally no break-in period with these boots thanks to Wolverine's Durashocks soles. They're good to go right out of the box . These soles are not only comfortable, but they also greatly reduce fatigue over the day. If you're planning on paying $50 for new work boots, spend the extra money and pick up a pair of these. Your body will thank you.
A Perfect Man
A Perfect Man
And here is the reason that I have to form my own opinion. Other reviews here hate it and I didn't. All a matter of taste. James and Nina are a lovely couple until Nina catches him screwing around ( you get the impression she knows he is a dog but hasn't caught him) At the Anniversary party she announces she is leaving him and then we have the soul searching. You get the impression that he never thought he was doing anything wrong. There is still love there, no doubt. The positives...Jeanne Tripplehorn, Live Schreiber, Louise Fletcher, the entire support cast, scenic Amsterdam and Larry! Larry won me over very early on...he is their puppy. The negatives? Sure, a little slow now and then. that is because there are no shootings or buildings or cars exploding. Just a good story. Bravo.

this is a great show to wind down to before bedtime and watch a few episodes. We love how each show is only 7 minutes long and keeps my 3 year old twins interest. The storyline is educational, teaches manners and other life lessons in a fun way. Hopefully there will be a season 3 to watch once we get through season 2!
Clip: Batman Return To Arkham Playthrough
Clip: Batman Return To Arkham Playthrough
I began watching this, because I was curious as to how/why the *two* games (Arkham Asylum and Arkham City) that this video is to cover would be done, to put the two together, and while unnecessary, I suppose it helps to clarify that these are remasters. However, I think that two videos, with a "season name" of "Return to Arkham" would have been much better, so that someone looking for Arkham City tips wouldn't have to choose chapters and forward through the first movie. It just makes these too cumbersome.

A playthrough of the original games would be just as good, because the games, themselves, haven't changed, so far as I can tell, since I'd beaten them, starting a decade ago, on last-gen consoles. So, perhaps to some, who don't know how these repackaged remasters were done, this video might be particularly confusing, at first, because, for all the narrator says, he doesn't explain what a playthrough is, for those who don't know, on a service that is filled with original content, where instructional videos are labeled, in everyday terms. My Ma, who became a huge Batman fan, after seeing Tom Hardy, called to ask what this is, because she couldn't understand it, which makes sense...

Because this *isn't a movie, but a playthrough* -- playing through a video game, to show gamers what to do, for those unfamiliar with the idea and who might think it's "a movie," as such -- of two games, I can't HATE the player's completely unnecessary narration, during some cutscenes. It sounds like he didn't want radio silence. Because it doesn't add to the purpose, it's annoying but not a reason to knock it, for what it's meant to do. For instance, he makes the remark that he's playing it on X-Box One, for seemingly no reason, and notes that Arkham Asylum is up ahead, after we've already seen the sign, at the gate, during the intro scene we're watching, at the time. It's similar to "reviewing" the video, the purpose of which is to help a player get through parts one may not be able to figure out, but making the tangential remark that the frame rate "stutters," which has nothing to do with the purpose of the video, because the game is the same. I didn't notice stutter, but I assume this remaster of the first two games are much better than the hot messes that the first PC ports from a decade ago were, and so it's possible that some might be watching and grading it, for its performance, instead of its purpose. I don't know what PC game plays itself, but I suppose, after so many years of not being able to play these incredible games, due to an amount of glitches that made them unplayable, anything that isn't perfect -- even outside its purpose -- is fair game for criticism, to compensate for a decade's dearth of playable content -- especially for two of the best, most ahead-of-their-time, and influential games, ever.

However, such a perspective doesn't apply to the quality, for anyone watching this *as a set of playthroughs.* It does a fine job, of that -- what it was made to do. It could've done its job, regardless of machine, so long as a port for the machine exists and doesn't crash, every five minutes, which would make it unwatchable, without a huge amount of editing, to remove all the video of the host having to restart his computer, over and over, and then picking up earlier, at automatic savepoints, because constantly saving manually, to avoid losing progress to an inevitable crash, would also make it difficult for the viewer to find the part for which one is looking, in order to find out how to beat XYZ boss, puzzle, or etc.

Combining these with walkthroughs and other playthroughs could prove helpful, because some walkthroughs have better ideas about how to do different things, mechanically. These, though, are well-made and explanatory, when necessary, especially for those who *don't* watch the cutscenes, while playing the game and/or in these videos, because the videos give you an idea about what to do, to advance, in the game -- and how side missions such as that with the glowing, green question marks are.

** For those who want to watch these games, as movies,** there are 4K versions of all the cutscenes, put together, in order (that don't "stutter," unless perhaps the connection is poor), on YouTube. Those make "movies" that are very interesting, with these games, and without the host's narration. If that's for what you're looking, the games' narratives (*not to be confused with "narration"*) are definitely good enough to watch, as though they were animated films. This is no good, for that, because of the constant walkthrough *narration.*

Overall, this/these could be more inclusive/completionist, but that would take *forever.* it works very well, as a walkthrough of the games, which is what it promises to be... and, while not the most perfect way to combine two games, it's the first I've seen. So, I'd give it a five stars, for trying something rather, if not completely new. Four stars, for the content, alone, but I'll round up...
Black Panther: The Animated Series Season 1
Black Panther: The Animated Series Season 1
I took a gamble on this not knowing what to expect but with the film coming out I wanted more back story / reference material on the Black Panther, which this does provide. With out a doubt I was pleasantly surprised that this production was so top notch! STORY: Masterfully written by Reginald Hudlin who's credits are too long to list here. He kept it real to life on so many levels, while keeping true to Marvel story traditions, while not always being "P.C." and taking chances. ANIMATION: If your a fan of John Romita Jr's Marvel art from his works on Daredevil, Punisher, Iron Man, Spider-Man, etc, your in for a treat. The animation captures the essence of Romita Jr's brooding style in a way I didn't think was possible. I'd love to John Byrne's art captured in animation like this someday. VOICES: Djimon Hounsou, Kerry Washington, Alfre Woodard, Jill Scott & Stan "The Man" Lee himself, need I say more? My only complaints are that I want more.
Realm of the Ring Lords: The Myth and Magic of the Grail Quest
Realm of the Ring Lords: The Myth and Magic of the Grail Quest
I am a huge fan of Heinrich Schlieman...the brilliant, multilingual, millionaire, entrepreneur, adventurer who everyone thought was completely mad...until, that is, he found the ancient city of Troy. When others asked him, "How did you know it would be there?", he answered, "I have known all my life...ever since I read Homer's Iliad." My point is, the ancient legends, myths and archetypes that have shaped our disperate cultures throughout the millennia, may actually have a basis in fact. At least, that's what Laurence Gardner argues and he does a wonderful job (in the way only Laurence Gardner can) of weaving myth and fact into another compelling history of humanity. As a linguist and psychologist, I am charmed by his etymological and character analyses. Throughout my reading of this book (and I have read it probably three times now), I repeatedly experienced moments when I felt as though I was reading something I already knew, but could not recall ever learning. So much of it makes so much sense! Still, with all my high praise, it is not a book for the uninitiated. Those who are unfamiliar with Tolkien (the rare person I presume) or those who have no interest in ancient, polytheistic Mythologies, legends of fairies, pixies and elves, vampire and werewolf myths or have no interest in learning about ancient people and geographies should probably steer clear. Those readers, on the other hand, who wish to be challenged on their existing beliefs, who long to look at maps and understand the mystery/history behind the established, "victor's" history... those are the readers who would most likely enjoy this book. I have read every book written by Laurence Gardner (save one), and I find myself going back, rereading, dog-earring, highlighting and taking notes on this book and "The Lost Secrets of the Sacred Ark" more than any of his others. That is not meant to discredit his other works, rather to emphasize my strong personal preference for this particular achievement. If you have enjoyed Laurence Gardner's work in the past, by all means, get this book. Read it critically...don't believe everything you read...and you will learn something new...even if you have felt you have known it all your life!

Frankenstein: Dead and Alive
Having waited for the last few years for this final installment with eager anticipation, I could not wait to sit down and read it. When the book arrived I noticed it seemed shorter than the previous two and that set off alarm bells...
However I understand there have been issues over the New Orleans setting and appreciate that caused delays and possible re-writes.

Book 3 feels like almost essay-like, I found it to have too much repetition of Books 1 & 2 and no real development of the story, it's an 'end'. I realised when I finished the book that somewhere in the first few chapters, I'd stopped caring about the main characters - not something I'm accustomed to when reading Dean Koontz. I hate to say it, but I just felt the whole book lacked real substance. It does feel very edited and I would not be at all surprised in Dean Koontz only wrote it because he felt he had to.

Read it if you're a fan of the series, but be prepared, it may not be all you wish(ed) for.
Sacred Sins
Sacred Sins
Tess is a psychiatrist who cares about her patients and truly wants to help them. When she is unable to help them, she suffers emotionally, in private, but to all outward appearances, she appears detached. She is asked to do a psychological profile on a man who is killing slender, pretty blonde women. He leaves notes absolving them of their sins.
Ben is a detective in charge of the investigation. He has little or no use for psychiatrists because his brother committed suicide while seeing one for delayed stress syndrome. He wants to catch this killer, but doesn't believe that any psychiatrist will make a difference.
Ben and Tess are strongly attracted to one another from the beginning. Both hold back. Tess because she doesn't know whether he dislikes her profession or her. Ben holds back because no woman has ever made him feel an emotional attachment like Tess. It scares him.
Time is running out. Four women have died. The killer has set his sights on Tess as his last and final victim. She fits the profile. Can they figure out who he is in time?
This is a very 'in depth' book. I enjoyed the insight into psychology and police procedure in tracking down a suspect. A very well written book. If you like CSI shows, you will like this.
Dutchman's Flat: Stories
Dutchman's Flat: Stories
Despite this not being dramatized Cat Parker does a good job of characterization, making it easy to keep the characters straight. The audio is crisp and clear and easily understood in a car environment. The stories are entertaining. Unlike the reviews above the stories printed above this is what I found (from the back cover):
Dutchman's Flat - Six angry men chase the winner of a brutal gun-fight. In the frustrating, insulting and dangerous days that follow, each learns the startling truth about the man they're goint to lynch.
His Brother's Debt - Cassidy can draw faster than a snake can strike. So why is he afraid to leave the back country? Because he has to avoid his demons - if they'll let him.
I found both stories to be great, but it would have been nice to at least add some special effects. Well worth the purchase price. One cassette. Run time: 1 hour.
Der Bourne Betrug: Roman (JASON BOURNE 5) (German Edition)
Der Bourne Betrug: Roman (JASON BOURNE 5) (German Edition)
Für die Jason Bourne-Romane und Filme interessiere ich mich vorwiegend deshalb, weil ich aus ihnen lerne, was alles zwischen Menschen möglich ist, wie Befehlende innerhalb der diversen Secret Offices Menschenleben aus den eigenen Reihen ohne Skrupel ausradieren um die eigene Position zu festigen; wie hochgefährlich "Terroristen" mit westlicher Ausbildung sich in geheimste Schaltstellen manipulieren können; wie Identitäten austauschbar sind, Memories ausradiert werden, wie der "Mensch "Agent seine Menschlichkeit ausschalten muss...und...und...Allerdings frage ich mich ernsthaft, wo sich um Himmels Willen die one and only Soul bei all dem versteckt hält. Ich z.B. bin auch so eine MARIE... und warte seit Monaten auf ein kleines Lebenszeichen eines "Jason Bourne", aber wenn und wie ich gerade in diesem sehr gut geschriebenen Roman lese, welchen allseitigen Gefahren auch der professionellste Agent ausgesetzt ist, kann der allerletzte Hoffnungsfunke auf ein Zeichen schwinden. Ich denke, dass die Inhalte doch ziemlich realistisch sind...leider! Wohl wegen der persönlichen Bezüge finde ich diesen Roman sehr fesselnd, äußerst spannend geschrieben und gebe deshalb auch die volle Stern-Hand
Pluto: Urasawa x Tezuka, Vol. 8 (8)
Pluto: Urasawa x Tezuka, Vol. 8 (8)
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

“Pluto: Urasawa x Tezuka, Volume 008” by Naoki Urasawa and Takashi Nagasaki is the last book in an eight-book science fiction manga series Pluto. The whole series is based on “The Greatest Robot on Earth,” the most popular story arc in Astro Boy series written by a legendary manga master Osamu Tezuka.

Thanks to Gesicht’s memory chip, Atom, a.k.a. Astro Boy, wakes up. However, he is different: provided with the memories and emotions of the other six great robots of the world, Atom has learned to hate. Bu will his hatred and anger be enough to finally stop Pluto, the murderous robot controlled by his villainous creator, and to save the Earth from the impending apocalypse?

THUMBS UP:

1) Great ending to a great story.
The last volume, just like the whole series, is action-packed, thrilling and suspenseful but at the same time extremely thought-provoking and touching with complex and relatable characters. As before, the illustrations are very detailed, realistic and simply gorgeous. However, “Pluto, Volume 006” still remains my absolute favorite with the fifth book as a close runner-up (check out my previous reviews to see why). Moreover, detective Gesicht is BY FAR my favorite character. I still cannot believe that, after reading the very first volume, I dared to call this robot passive and boring. Ha!

2) Important takeaway.
Although every single volume is thought-provoking and touching in its own way, the main message - “nothing comes of hatred” - and its gravity become clear just at the very end. As a bonus feature, in the eight volume’s postscript, co-author Takashi Nagasaki beautifully summarizes the takeaway of Pluto series and also builds a very convincing case speculating on what Osamu Tezuka meant by his famous story’s title “The Greatest Robot on Earth.”

COULD BE BETTER:

1) Rushed wrap-up.
Comparing to the excellent story building in the earlier volumes, the last two volumes seem a little bit rushed as some revelations are way too convenient, not very logical and thus less realistic. Also, it feels like the authors were just too eager to wrap things up and did’t bother to tie some loose ends. For example, I might be missing something, but how exactly is the evil teddy bear involved in the assassinations of the seven great robots of the world?

2) Lack of color.
Throughout the whole series, my only constant complaint is the black and white illustrations. Don’t get me wrong, they don’t look bad at all, but at the beginning of every single volume there are six to ten colorful pages which just look SO MUCH better. I understand that it might be too expensive to color the whole book, but even the black and white illustrations with additional shades (like the first eight pages in Act 63) are so much more appealing than the rest of the artwork.

VERDICT: 3.5 out of 5

Although a little bit rushed, “Pluto: Urasawa x Tezuka, Volume 008” by Naoki Urasawa and Takashi Nagasaki is a great ending to a great story with a powerful takeaway. However, just as I predicted in the very beginning, you really need to read ALL eight volumes to truly understand and appreciate Pluto series.

Great biography series that all kids will enjoy. My students (4th grade) can't seem to put them down. I've had them in my room for the last few years and they just eat them up. The content is easy to understand and it provides great information on each person/topic along with a timeline in the back. Great for parents and teachers alike.

Honnêtement je trouve que Masashi Kishimoto s'est perdu,
lorsque je regarde le début de naruto ou le moindre combat était tactique et que je regarde les combats dans les derniers tomes
j'ai l'impression de lire dragon ball z.

J'ai grandi avec naruto mais je pense que Masashi Kishimoto aurait du s'arrêter à la fin de l'arc de pain,
il avait fait un sans faute.
Belinda
Belinda
Als großer Fan von Anne Rice's alten Werken (alles, was bis ca. 2001 im Original erschien) war der Kauf von "Belinda" für mich ein Muss. Nicht nur die Vampire Chronicles und Lives Of The Mayfair Witches, sondern auch ihre hauptsächlich auf Erotik und Kunst ausgerichteten Bücher, wie Exit to Eden und Falsetto haben mich schon immer faszinert. Anne Rice war - schritstellerisch gesehen- für mich fast unerreichbar. Umso herber ist die Enttäuschung über "Belinda", ein Buch, wie es flacher, sinnloser, unerotischer und schlichtweg langweiliger kaum existiert.

Von verschiedenen reviews und Kritikern vernimmt man in Bezug auf "Belinda" immer wieder den Vergleich mit Nabokov's "Lolita". Das ist absolut unzutreffend. "Lolita" war kontrovers, es beschäftigte sich mit der Ausnutzung von Macht einer Autoritätsfigur über ein Kind, mit einer an sexueller und körperlicher Gewalt immer stärker zunehmenden Irrfahrt, die in Eifersucht, Gewalt, Wahnsinn und Tod endete. Doch ich will hier nicht in eine Schilderung von Nabokovs Werk abgleiten. Es sei einfach gesagt, dass der Detailreichtum, die Emotionen, die Gewalt und der Irrsinn "Lolita"s in "Belinda" nicht auftauchen.

"Belinda" ist der Versuch eine Liebesgeschichte mit einer Kriminalgeschichte zu verknoten und das ganze Trauerspiel dann im Fluss des Kunstgenres zu versenken. Kinderbuchautor/-zeichner trifft junges Mädchen, verliebt sich, sie wird seine Muse, furchtbare Vergangenheit taucht auf, Drama entfaltet sich. Das ganze wird zum Ende hin mit zwei Kilo Zucker abgeschmeckt und dem verdutzten Leser vorgesetzt, nach dem Motto: die Suppe löffelst du jetzt aus.

Die "Romanze" zwischen der 1) wunderschönen, b) kindlichen aussehenden und äußerlich immer wieder mit einem ->Baby<- verglichenen und c) unglaublich erwachsenen und reifen und so gebildeten Belinda, die einem vorkommt, als hätte sie die letzten 20 Jahre an der Hochschule verbracht obwohl sie erst 16 ist - und dem 45jährigen, selbstverständlich a) unglaublich gutaussehenden, b) reichen, c) tragisch vorbelasteten, super talentierten Künstler Jeremy, den einfach keiner versteht ist so lächerlich und unglaubwürdig, dass sich Emotionen beim Lesen nicht einstellen.

Anne Rice's übliche Bausteine; Reichtum, Attraktivität, New Orleans, Bisexualität aller Beteiligten, fieberhafte Besessenheit mit bestimmten Dingen, Erkenntnisse durch Träume etc. sind allesamt vorhanden. Dennoch gelingt es ihr nicht auf ihr übliches Niveau zu kommen, auf dem sie ihre Leser mit der Entwicklung der Handlung zu fesseln und in ihr Buch zu ziehen vermag. Die Charaktere bleiben farblos und flach, die Handlung unterdurchschnittlich und vorhersehbar. Die große Enthüllung, auf die man die erste Hälfte des Buches wartet und die man sich eigentlich schon selbst zusammengereimt hat, erfolgt hier nach dem Prinzip: 5 Seiten Erklärung -> Umwerfung des Gesagten, neue Erklärung -> Ausbau der Erklärung -> neue Erklärung -- und das nur um noch später auf 50 Seiten das Ganze nochmal vorgekaut zu bekommen. Am Ende will man es gar nicht mehr wissen.

Zwei Dinge haben mich außerdem noch geärgert:

1. Der völlig selbstverständlich Umgang mit Pädophilie zum einen. Die Sexualisierung von Kindern in Anne Rice's Werken ist nicht selten. Wir erinnern uns an Armand aus den Chroniken, Mona Mayfair aus dem Hexenzyklus, Marco Antonio aus Falsetto oder die unzähligen Anspielungen auf Haremsknaben etc. Bisher war alles, was Rice in dieser Hinsicht fabriziert hat mit Stil und Eleganz gemacht. Hier geht es plump um eine Affäre eines Mannes im mittleren Alters mit einem 16jährigen Mädchen, welches immer wieder in ihrer äußeren Kindlichkeit beschrieben wird (wer sich das Buch aus diesem Grund kaufen möchte, dem sei gleich gesagt, dass es glücklicherweise keine graphischen Sexszenen gibt).

2. Das Ende. Nach allem was Belinda von denen ihr am nächsten Stehenden angetan wurde, hilft sie ihnen am Ende aus dem selbst angerichteten Dreck wieder herauszukommen? Die halte-die-andere-Wange-hin-Taktik mag ja einigen Leuten Spaß machen, aber realistisch oder vertretbar ist dieser Ausgang den ich nicht weiter erklären kann, da ich eventuelle Leser nicht spoilen will) meiner Ansicht nach nicht.

Fazit: Ein trauriger Totalausfall einer Autorin, die sonst (bis 2001) durch ihre Brillanz bestach. "Belinda" ist farblos, langweilig, unnötig verworren und schlichtweg enttäuschend. Absolut nicht zu empfehlen.

OK : It is a crying shame that this Box set is no longer available, but then it was released in 1999 - so not surprised. One reviewer in the US thought this was a bit of an overkill since Smilet never really had a national hit (although lots of his songs were hits for other people), but that's to do Overton Amos Lemons and this collection a major disservice!

What does this collection contain -- every track (bar the 2 b-sides of his 1st 2 singles) that he ever recorded. Generally backed by the finest backing band in new Orleans (Dave Bartholomew's outfit mainly, so lots of Lee Allen, red Tyle, Dave Bartholomew, earl Palmer, Earnest McLean etc etc). Then there are the pianists 1st Tuts Washington (who completely belies his reputation as a rather rhythmically random player -- on the early tracks he rocks). Then later Edward Frank (one of the unsing piano players from New Orleans), and then Huey Smith -- with the odd spattering of James Booker on a couple of tracks.

Then there's Smiley, Blues shouter, Rock and Roller, Balladeer, who had a really attractive voice which never sounds wearying, perhaps a complaint one could level at Smiling Joe. And the material, whcih is great, and ALL pretty well recorded (as was most of the stuff that Bartholomew recorded is).

As you can't easily buy this -- I guess you'll just have to buy one of the compilations -- most of the really famous stuff is available there.

I love that it is lightweight and smaller. It's not tablet size, but its not bulky like other laptops. I bought it for my home based business and it works great. The down side is that when you first start it up and set it up it is set as Windows 10 S and you are unable to install apps that are not Microsoft approved like Chrome, Firefox, Facebook Messenger, and Adobe Acrobat. However, you can find similar apps on the Microsoft store. If you would rather have Win 10 then you can switch to it from either the Microsoft store or your settings. You will lose some of the Windows 10 S features like the extra security protection. Another reason I gave 4 stars on storage capacity is that there is only 5 gigs of one drive space. You can either upgrade or if you have a family or business version of Microsoft Office 365 then you'll have the full 1TB of one drive space. I plan to upgrade the hard drive in the future to a 1TB.

Overall, it is a great buy and perfect for what I need it for. I chose to keep the Win 10 S as the operating system. And I just transferred my files to my one drive account I have associated with Microsoft Family so I have all my files. I just delete what I don't need from my main account after it has been uploaded to my secondary account. Just a word of warning you are not able to link Microsoft accounts to each other so make sure when you set up your laptop that you choose the account you want to login with because once it is set it cannot be changed.

Sigvaris Simon Compression Stocking Donner Device (Medium)
Wasn’t particularly enchanted with wearing compression stockings. So, this entire thing already had me in a foul mood. Then the stockings arrive and my poor wife got exhausted putting the darn things on. Gnashing my teeth, I said, “there must be a gadget to help.” Indeed. It even has a name: a donner. Bought the cheapest. It worked, but I could see how it was going to turn in kindle or toothpicks. It was wobbly, weak, and required a lot of effort. When I looked up a how-to on YouTube I saw a demo of the Sigvaris Simon Compression Stocking Donner Device and it looked good to me. It arrived in pieces, but assembly was a cinch, even for a mechanically-impaired person like me. This thing works like it’s supposed to. Followed the pictures and had those thigh-high compressions stockings on in a minute. The device is made out of superior materials, the threads are finely machined; the pieces fit and snap in place like they should. The device is adjustable for a big range of heights. It is meant to be used by people who can’t reach their feet and want to be independent. The company that makes them is over 100 years old and is headquartered in Switzerland. Mine was manufactured in The Netherlands. A truly superior product and I would say it’s the gold standard for the class.
Haribo - Cerezas con azúcar super - Caramelo de goma - 1 kg
Haribo - Cerezas con azúcar super - Caramelo de goma - 1 kg
 Hace un par de semanas me dio el antojo de atiborrarme a chuches y acabé comprando estos melones de Haribo. Y la verdad es que las he disfrutado un montón desde la primera hasta la última gominola. Están increíblemente buenas.

Estos son los puntos importantes de estas gominolas Haribo qu eme gustaría indicarte:

- Aspectos positivos:

a) Sabor magnífico: Hacía tiempo que una gominola no me sorprendia en cuanto a sabor. Estas chucherías tienen un sabor muy bueno y lo cierto es que el sabor a melón está muy conseguido.

b) Aunque llevan mucha azúcar, no me han dolido las encías: Generalmente, yo no tolero muy bien las gominolas con mucha azucar por el exterior. Bueno, sobretodo mis encías no lo toleran. Pero con estos melones de Haribo no he tenido ningún tipo de problema.

c) Olor excepcional: En cuanto abres la bolsa, toda la casa se impregna de un olor atrayente muy especial. Es el típico olor como cuando preparas algo y el olor se esparce por todo tu hogar, haciendo que a todos los que habitan en ella, se les haga la boca agua. Eso mismo pasa con estas chucherías de melón con su olor.

d) Mucha cantidad: Con un kilo da para hartarse muchas veces. Bueno, están tan buenas que lo cierto es que da para hartarse, pero no muchas veces. A mi me ha durado una semana justita esta bolsa de gominolas. Y eso que es de un kilo.

e) Muy bonitas visualmente: A los adultos les da bastante igual, pero si las quieres para los crios, les van a encantar. Primero por los ojos y luego por su sabor.

f) Relación calidad-precio excepcional: Teniendo en cuenta lo buenas que son, su olor, lo bonitas que son y su precio, en mi opinión es una de las mejores gominolas de Haribo.

- Aspectos negativos:

a) Un pelín blandas para mi gusto: Por poner alguna pega a estas gominolas, a mi me hubieran gustado más si fueran un poquito más duras. Pero este aspecto negativo es secundario.

Resumiendo... Unas de las gominolas más buenas que he probado de Haribo e incluso diría que de cualquier otro fabricante. Tiene todo lo que buscas en una gominola. Es por ello que la recomiendo efusivamente. Estoy seguro que gustará a cualquiera que las pruebe.

Compré este producto porque lo pedí junto al earl grey a granel de la misma marca, ya que quería probar alguna variedad más pero no me decidía a comprar tanta cantidad de ningún otro.

Partiendo de que no soy muy fan del té en bolsitas, aunque es la forma más cómoda y rápida, porque me gustan más las hojas enteras por calidad y el usar una tetera; este pack me parece una buena opción porque vienen 7 tipos diferentes de infusiones (3 de cada clase). La presentación no es nada del otro mundo, pero si no lo quieres para hacer un regalo, en cuyo caso, elegiría otras opciones que tienen y se ven más cuidadas; está bien porque no usan plástico, cada bolsita viene sellada y en el exterior de la caja se ven claramente los ingredientes que lleva cada una, junto a una indicación del nivel de cafeína.

En cuanto al sabor, todas están buenas, si bien las más típicas como, por ejemplo, menta o la de jengibre con limón, no me han llamado la atención especialmente. Las que sí llevan ingredientes más diferentes, como el té verde floral o el rojo, sí que me han gustado más y me los plantearía como opción a comprarlos en otro formato más adelante.
