Cette biographie est bien écrite et permet de mieux comprendre les choix de cet homme qui prend de plus en plus d'importance au travers de ses sociétés. La biographie est très intéressante et vous permettra de vous plonger dans la psyché et le point de vue d'Elon Musk, mais également de découvrir l'envers du décors de ses sociétés (Tesla et Space X), de leur naissance à aujourd'hui, avec les choix difficiles qu'il a fallu faire et les nombreux sacrifices consenti par les ingénieurs y travaillant.

This little book is filled with great quotes. Small book, but then you know that by the price. It fits in your purse or backback so it's handy to pull out and read while you're waiting at the doctor's office, in the car pool line or just need a quick picker upper. I've enjoyed it.
Henry Ford and the Model T (Inventions and Discovery)
Henry Ford and the Model T (Inventions and Discovery)
There weren't any reviews for this book yeat, so I HAD to let people know how neat this book is! It is a simple graphic novel to tell the story of Henry Ford creating the Model T. After learning some basics in the story, there are additional pages of information in the back. Also included are references to other sources of information on Henry Ford, including a code for a website where children can learn more according to their age at a safe internet site. I am anxious to look up the additional references, and even more excited to read more of the series with my son. He loves the graphic novel idea, and is learning many crucial historical stories without realizing it! Would definitely recommend!
Essential Bob Dylan
Essential Bob Dylan
Vor Jahrzehnten - als es noch keine CD gab - hatte ich einen Bob Dylan Sampler als LP. Dieses Medium habe ich schon lange nicht mehr. Der überraschende Nobelpreis hat mich nun an Dylan erinnert und ich suchte eine guten Sampler. Warum nicht "The Essential Bob Dylan". 32 Songs auf 2 CDs genauso günstig wie die mit vielen guten Rezensionen ausgestattete CD "Best of Bob Dylan" mit "nur" 18 Songs.
Klingt nach einem tollen Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis. Aber amazon zeigte keine einzige Bewertung, wie ist das möglich bei einem seit Jahren verfügbaren Sampler?
Da ich mich seit einiger Zeit über den dynamisch plattgewalzten Klang "moderner" Produktionen (z. B. Adele) ärgere, habe ich vorab die dynamic range database befragt, die mich mit guten Zahlen beruhigte.

Und nun höre ich "The Essential Bob Dylan" immer wieder.

Tolle Musik durchweg. Die Aufnahmen sind im wesentlichen chronologisch sortiert, so kannte ich die meisten Songs der 1. CD von früher (von meiner damaligen LP). Ich bin von allen Songs auf beiden CDs sehr angetan und somit sehr froh, diese Doppel-CD als Querschnitt des musikalischen Schaffens von Bob Dylan gewählt zu haben.

Der Klang ist - gerade im Angesicht des Alters mancher Aufnahmen - beeindruckend gut. Ja, auch dieses Mastering ist recht hoch ausgesteuert, aber hier handelt es sich um eine sinnvolle Optimierungsmaßnahme, die musikalisch so wichtige Dynamik bleibt erhalten. Es macht Spaß, Dylan in dieser Qualität auf meiner großen High-End Anlage zu hören.

Ein in jeder Hinsicht gelungener Dylan - Sampler.

We buy a lot of Jordan clothing and footwear for our son and are usually very happy with the quality and durability. We purchased a pair of jogging bottoms from this seller and my son has only occasionally worn them as he has another pair identical which he lives in (hence wanting another pair). Within only 2 washes the N on the large JORDAN lettering has completely come off leaving a brand name JORDA which is not so world-widely recognised in Basketball terms.
Very disappointed with this item and has left it none usable for public wear.

These are by far the best bamboo tooth brushes I have tried. Firm, but not too firm. I think the aqua bristles in middle make me feel good ..... Good, srtong handle. Dont be fooled...bamboo toothbrushes will get moldie if you do not wipe off and let dry properly in between brushes. Otherwise I feel great about my part in saving our planet and my teeth! I will definatly buy this tooth brush again and again.

I first viewed this movie about 10 or 12 years ago, and I truly fell in love with it, and shortly thereafter contacted its maker, Steve Kroschel.

Wolverines, which this movie is about, have a ferocious reputation in all of the far North latitudes, where they live still. American indians have told stories for many centuries about their cunning, intelligence and fierceness, and trappers hated and feared them.

This story is about a young boy who becomes friends with an orphaned "kit" -as baby wolverines are called- during a summer in the Alaskan wilderness. The beauty of the scenery and the touching affection between the two of them is very heart-warming and shows not only the potential fierceness that a wolverine is capable of when facing grizzly bears and wolves, but also the deep affection they are capable of with humans who treat them well and the constant playfulness that is naturally part of their nature, as it is with their cousins, the otters.

Some skeptical viewers may say that this is only a movie, and that wolverines are not affectionate with humans, but it may be worth noting that the producer of the movie, Steve Kroschel, has raised a number of wolverines from infants and has also obtained others as adults, and has an extraordinarily affectionate relationship with them, some of which starred in his movie.

This movie is educational, visually stunning, and instructive about nature, Alaska and Alaskans, and the true nature of wolverines, which are part of the weasel family, as are martins, weasels, otters, ferrets? Fishers, and others. I absolutely recommend this movie for family viewing. It delights adults and children, as well as teenagers and grandparents. Exceptionally good film.

Spider-Man: Far From Home
Spider-Man: Far From Home
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is beginning to show chinks in its armor. It had one of the most incredible runs in film history. 2008’s Iron Man was a game changer. Later that year The Incredible Hulk was released which was very mixed and people try to forget about. Two years later however Iron Man 2 came out and then things just took off. Every now and then there were some questionable moves however. The mood of Thor Dark World in 2013 was not loved by everyone. I wasn’t that thrilled by 2016’s Doctor Strange, but it grew on me, but I’m still not sure that’s a character interesting enough to carry a film. Most important however was 2019’s Captain Marvel which I thought suffered from horrible writing. I felt no connection to that film at all and was never excited about it. It was the first straight Marvel dud. Spider-Man Far From Home is supposed to be the finale of all those films that built up to the Avengers and then concluded with Endgame. Unfortunately, it too had some really horrible writing that destroyed what could have been a good film.

The movie focuses upon Peter Parker and his class debate team going on a European tour. Nick Fury shows up and says that Parker has to be an Avenger instead of running after his school friends and MJ. Fury introduces Mysterio who says he is a soldier from the future attempting to stop these monsters called the Elementals from destroying the Earth. There’s a constant tension between Parker wanting to have a teen’s life and his responsibilities of being a super hero in the Avengers, especially after Tony Stark’s died. That latter point is brought up constantly with images of Iron Man throughout and Fury constantly berating Parker about how he has to be an adult and not a kid. This was basically a coming of age theme.

The major problem comes from some horrible writing. For example, After Parker and Mysterio defeat an Elemental in Venice they go for a drink in a bar. They both have their suits on and no masks and they talk about the passing of Stark and being a hero. There are people all around them acting like two superheroes aren’t sitting with them exposing their secret identities. Some of the comedy works, and other times it’s just juvenile. For instance, Parker accidently sends a drone to kill a classmate while on the European bus tour. To distract people Parker yells “Baby goats” so people look out the bus window while he jumps through a vent in the roof, destroys the drone, and then jumps back in the bus like no one would see him. That’s like a cartoon scene. They keep on having things like this over and over like people won’t mind the suspension of reality and go for these ridiculous scenarios.

It’s not like the whole movie was bad, but there were just too many poor choices mixed in with the good that it wrecked the entire thing.
Going Home: Unfinished Business/ Island of Flowers/ Mind Over Matter
Going Home: Unfinished Business/ Island of Flowers/ Mind Over Matter
The stories in this book were mediocre with the first one, "Unfinished Business," being, in my opinion, the best in the bunch. However, even that story wasn't what I expect from picking up a Nora novel. The book itself would never have been my choice (a co-worker passed it on to me to read). All three stories were the same old, same old. Girl meets boy, girl and boy are at each other's throats, then girl and boy have sex, then they fall in love. One mistakes the other's intentions but in the end all is happily ever after. The stories lacked substance. "Island of Flowers" at least took us on a nice tour of the Hawaiian Islands, however the female lead in that story, Lainey Simmons, was nothing but a milk toast, annoying creature as you watched her fall apart (but immediately fall in love even though he was downright arrogant and rude) under the influence of Dillon O'Brian, her father's business partner. "Mind Over Matter" was a boring and ridiculous story of a clairvoyant mother/daughter, the daughter, A.J. (Aurora) working as a talent agent and involved with a producer, David Brady, who wants to produce a show with her mother in the starring role. The ending was tiresome with all the female/male mind games and misinterpreted emotions - very ho hum and enough to put you to sleep for lack of a storyline. The one story that was anywhere near decent to my mind was "Unfinished Business" about a world renowned concert pianist (Vanessa Sexton) coming home to make amends with her mother with whom she had never really had a relationship. She hooks up with her childhood flame, Brady Tucker, the good doctor in town and learns quite a bit about not only her mother but the feelings she and Brady begin to rekindle as the story moves along. All in all, this book is very early Nora and while I am an avid Nora fan, I feel the stories were definitely not worth the time reading. Nora has some excellent early works so don't let this bad egg discourage your reading them. "The Villa," "Homeport," "Carolina Moon," "River's End" and "Honest Illusions" are just a few of her early works and part of a very long list that are definitely worth the read.

Dragon Ball SD 1 (Jump Comics) (2013) ISBN: 408870648X [Japanese Import]
I'm learning to read Japanese, and considering that I love Dragon Ball this was the perfect choice. It's mostly written in hiragana with some kanji, but the Kanji has the hiragana in small print right next to the kanji. Reading manga is a great was to learn kanji, and I highly recommend this to people learning Japanese. Although you might need a dictionary and some translate app to help with the vocabulary.

I'm a die hard BB fan and my 6 year old has all my 30 year old books from my childhood. He's in K this year and this book is a great gateway for a conversation on kids in his class and bad influences. We really like it, and the morale of the story seems to make sense to him so it's a great way to reiterate a strong message without a lecture from boring parents:)

Built for Adventure: The Classic Automobiles of Clive Cussler and Dirk Pitt
Built for Adventure: The Classic Automobiles of Clive Cussler and Dirk Pitt
First off let me state that my book doesn't appear to have any binding problems. I have been sitting and going through for several days now and not a problem with the binding. So, while I know another reviewer had problems my copy doesn't appear to have any issues.

The pictures are really well done, the paper quality is good and there is lots to look at. You don't just get one small picture of each car but you often get multiple pictures showing the exterior, the interior and anything of special interest, such as specialty hub caps. The detail is great and I couldn't be happier with the quality.

The description of each car is good yet not overly technical. I enjoy the way each description is written and don't think that I will grow bored over looking through this book in the days, months and years to come.

The bonus feature is knowing the background story of the novels that Dirk Pitt appears in while driving one of these cars, or maybe even our good Van Dorn Detective Isaac Bell.

I was a bit taken back by the cost, but then realized that this is a coffee table book and would have lots of color pictures that are not cheap to print and reproduce.

After receiving my copy, I'm pleased with the quality and with the price. I will enjoy this book for many years to come and think if you are a Clive Cussler fan and enjoy cars that you will also enjoy this book.

I got the kindle version of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and it even came with the audible version for free. It’s nice to carry it anywhere I go and if I don’t feel like reading, I can listen to the superb narration. It’s pretty quick and kind of dry, but I think it suits the humor and absurdity of the story.
French Toast Girls' Front Pleated Skirt with Tabs
French Toast Girls' Front Pleated Skirt with Tabs
I bought this for my daughter's instrumental concert.

She's 10 and I figured a size 12 was a safe bet...I was wrong.

The fit on this is very weird. It's huge in the waist and super tight on the hips. She was barely able to wrench it over her bottom and hips and was extremely uncomfortable.

It rose up a bit in the back and she ended up wearing shorts under it. Yes...she still wore it since we didn't have time to get anything else, but struggled out of this as soon as school was over.

It's a shame because it's very cute. It's looked nice once she got it on (if she didn't move too much), but it definitely had a ton of fit issues!

Unhappy.

I bought these (and a cute little funnel) to take home extra wine from my wine tasting class. Of course, that was before I learned that the course had a rule against taking the wine off campus, so they only got to be used for that purpose once. Sadness.

In any case, they have since been used to take a day's worth of soy milk to work for my coffee. I imagine they'd be great for a large number of tasks. They do not leak (even when on their side in my purse -- thank goodness) and they are relatively sturdy.

Great product. Am very happy with mine.

Good value for trailcam remote modem. I have a couple of these. So far, working flawless. Like the LED status indicators, helpful setting it up. I have the ATT GSM version. Battery life has been very good, even after 100s of photos uploaded. Had one modem tell me the batteries were dead (very cold that morning), but it kept sending pics... and a few hours later, reported batteries were fine (they were new). Not in love with the phone app, but it's workable. Mine locks up or is very sluggish at times. Wish it uploaded all the thumbnails for local storage on the phone, so they don't have to reload every connection. Also, would be nice to have a configurable polled system check (say, daily or every 6 hrs etc), just to make sure the modem is still alive (if there are no pics taken under "immediate" upload setting).
Customer service at Moultrie is outstanding. They respond very quickly, and stand behind their products. Wish all companies had such service. I'm ordering more of these... and the X series combo camera/modem. Had much better performance with these than other brands.
Hi-Spec 17 Piece Carbon-Steel Hand & Needle File Tool Set. 4 Piece Large Flat, Half-Round, Round & Triangle & 12 Piece Fine Micro Needle Files for DIY Craftwork, Metal & Wood Work
Hi-Spec 17 Piece Carbon-Steel Hand & Needle File Tool Set. 4 Piece Large Flat, Half-Round, Round & Triangle & 12 Piece Fine Micro Needle Files for DIY Craftwork, Metal & Wood Work
 I really needed a few medium grit files to compliment my existing set. Mainly, I needed a medium bastard, and a coarse round. This set had both. Seeing as buying each single file from Nicholson would have cost me 10-20$, this was a better fit.

Overall, this set offers a lot. You get a reinforced nylon case to store the files in so they won't get banged up or broken. Far superior to the cheap vinyl cases that come with most file sets. You get the 4 most commonly used files: bastard, half-round, round, and triangle.

Nearly all of the files are cross cut, except for one side of the large bastard, and one of the needle files. This is great for most work, as it removes a moderate amount of material. The needles are a bit finer.

The overall quality is acceptable. The only issue I found was that the teeth on the half-round needle files was not 100% evenly spaced. This has no effect on the function of the files, and is just cosmetic.

Make sure you maintain your files. Use a wire/nylon brush to clean them when they get loaded up. Only use them in the positive cutting direction (push them in the direction of the handle to the tip).

When I was growing up in the seventies, my parents took me to Gatlinburg, Tennessee. They bought me several genuine rabbit and squirrel pelts from the gift stores. Now, no one sells them anymore because of ethical reasons, I think. (Rabbits and squirrels aren't endangered species.) When I received my burgundy faux fur rug from ITSOFT, I was reminded of those animal pelts from my childhood. The ITSOFT rug looked and felt the same. The faux fur is so luxuriously soft and its backing reminded me of genuine cured leather. I didn't find anything about it harsh, rugged, or obnoxious. Neither did it smell. I love the color of burgundy. The rug looks just like it is depicted on Amazon's website.

I placed this ITSOFT burgundy faux fur rug directly in front of the brick fireplace in my entertainment room. Most of this room's décor is burgundy. In fact, I placed a Christmas tree in the corner of the entertainment room, in front of a tall window, and wrapped a solid burgundy tree skirt around its base. My brown leather sectional couch has burgundy throw pillows on it and a burgundy rug beneath it. My entertainment room, thanks to the addition of the burgundy faux fur rug, looks very cozy this holiday season. Therefore, if you like the color burgundy, and need a fur throw rug, then you should definitely think about ordering the burgundy faux fur rug from ITSOFT. It would also make an affordable Christmas present to anyone who loves burgundy and has wooden floors like I do.

Note: Care instructions are not provided with the ITSOFT rug itself. One must look for them on Amazon's website. I wish they had been provided with the rug. If it is given as a gift, the receiver may not know where to find the care instructions. I didn't find a tag or label anywhere on the rug that provides care instructions or gives the manufacture's name. I suggest ITSOFT label or tag their product for future reference. Also, I placed it in front of my fireplace for the holidays. Afterwards, I may lay it on my sectional couch or throw it on the club chair in my sitting room where I do a ton of reading. This burgundy faux fur rug from ITSOFT would look good most anywhere, especially since I have burgundy in most every room of my home.

I’ve loved grape licorice since I was a kid but I cannot ever find it anywhere in Pittsburgh or the surrounding area that tastes like the kind I loved as a child. I found them in a little candy shop while I was on vacation but they only had a few left to purchase. When I saw these on Amazon, I took a chance that they would taste similar as the picture looked to be similar. Oh how thrilled I was when I tasted the first piece...just like I remembered!!
