Warren Buffett Top Life Lessons: Lessons for Unlimited Success in Business, Investing and Life (Volume 1)
Warren Buffett Top Life Lessons: Lessons for Unlimited Success in Business, Investing and Life (Volume 1)
This book is only 29 pages. The content is good, but it is only a brief snapshot of Warren Buffet's life and investment strategy. More importantly, it seems that this book is self-published since no publishing company is listed (not even the "CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform" company is listed as it is in the Amazon description), no references are cited (ya, references are sort of important (can you sense my understated sarcasm here)), and the entire book needs editing. It appears that the author just threw this book together in an afternoon and as highlights from other Warren Buffett books. There are multiple grammatical errors. For example, some sentences are incomplete, missing some important connecting articles, some pronouns and antecedents are switched or missing, and there is a center-justified paragraph on page 25 that stands out like a sore thumb against all the other left-justified paragraphs. I even got a good laugh out of how the disclaimer on the last page is a medical disclaimer, which must have been copied and pasted from some unknown source without much thought.
The Awakened Woman: Remembering & Reigniting Our Sacred Dreams
The Awakened Woman: Remembering & Reigniting Our Sacred Dreams
I want to encourage everyone, including men, to read The Awakened Woman. For most, having this window into the life of a woman from such humble beginnings to becoming Oprah’s “favorite guest of all time,” would be enough to get you into this book (Oprah also contributes the book’s forward) Dr. Trent not only shares some of the many obstacles that she had to overcome to gain her dream of an exceptional education, she also shares stories from the many amazing people she has encountered along her heroic journey. Tererai challenges us to let go of the grip of the small “hungers;” so we can awaken the big hunger, the passion within, that gives meaning and worth to our existence. Although the Awakened Woman speaks specifically to women, us men can not only learn a little something about ourselves through the perspectives shared here, we can also benefit from this window into the special joys of sisterhood. Paraphrasing Muriel Rukeyser, Tererai asks, “What would happen if every woman, whether barefoot or stiletto clad—told her truth?” Like this thought, so much of what Tererai shares, resonates to today’s call for equality and diversity. I ask, what would happen if every man, wearing Birkenstock or Gucci, facilitated women in their telling of their truth? You should want to read this book just the insights into why Oprah thinks so highly of Tererai that she donated a million and a half dollars to the Tererai Trent Foundation. By buying this book, you also contribute to Tererai’s effort to help better educate the children of her native Zimbabwe as well as other parts of underserved Africa. Not enough incentive for you? How about the idea that by buying this book, you also send some good karma to Zimbabwe during this challenging time of its transition.
Thank you for this wonderful book Dr. Trent,
Deamer Dunn, Author and small business owner

Masterpieces by Bob Dylan [Music CD]
Masterpieces by Bob Dylan [Music CD]
Wow - I can't believe I'm the first person to review this! So I'll be as comprehensive of my review as I can be in case anybody reads it! LOL!
Well this is a 3-CD set, released exclusively in Australia, New Zealand and Japan only in March, 1978, intended as sort of a greatest hits package mixed with some rarities! This was re-issued on CD by Columbia in 1991. Alas, this is now out of print so it is a treasure trove for any Dylan fan, especially this one! This is reminiscent of "Biograph" in that the tracks don't go in chorological order, they're sort of all over the place but still fit in nicely together! Now for the track listings!

CD 1
1. Knockin' On Heaven's Door - from "Pat Garrett And Billy The Kid" - a top-notch hit for Bob in 1973 and is covered by such artists as Jerry Garcia and Guns 'n Roses!
2. Mr. Tambourine Man - from "Bringing It All Back Home" - my personal favorite Dylan song - The Byrds had a #1 hit with this one!
3. Just Like A Woman - from "Blonde On Blonde" - another classic and I believe was a top 10 hit for Bob in 1966.
4. I Shall Be Released - from "Greatest Hits Vol. II" - this one is from the 1971 recording session that produced "Down In The Flood", "Watching The River Flow", "George Jackson", and "You Ain't Goin' Nowhere"
5. Tears Of Rage - from "The Basement Tapes" - one of the best songs from the sessions with the Band at the basement of Big Pink from 1967!
6. All Along The Watchtower - from "John Wesley Harding" - a true classic that most people give Jimi Hendrix credit for - but I've always preferred Bob's version the best!
7. One More Cup Of Coffee - from "Desire" - a cool, sort of love song with Emmylou Harris on backing vocals!
8. Like A Rolling Stone - from "Self Portrait" - this was the 1967 Isle of Wight performance which is okay but kinda sloppy and Bob gets his words mixed up a tad! I prefer the original recording or the "Bootleg 4" live version from Manchester England, 1966.
9. Quinn The Eskimo - from "Self Portrait" - this one is by far the best performance in the 1967 Isle of Wight concert - it ROCKS and is much better to my ears than the original version on "Biograph" and "Side Tracks"!
10. Tomorrow Is A Long Time - from "Greatest Hits Vol. II" - this is the live Town Hall performance from 1963 - Columbia had plans to release this whole show but it got shelved for some reason! Perhaps a future installment in the Bootleg Series?
11. Lay, Lady, Lay - from "Hard Rain" - really wish they would've put the original version on here instead... the backup singers on this one are super-annoying! Bob does change some of the lyrics though which makes it worth a listen!
12. Idiot Wind - a better track from "Hard Rain" - kind of an angry sounding version, unlike the one on "Bootleg 2" which has a much softer tone!

CD 2
1. Mixed-Up Confusion - an outtake from "Freewheelin" - I think this is the same version found on "Side Tracks" - a good song but I like the single version better found on "Biograph".
2. Positively 4th Street - a non-album single from mid-'65 which had "From A Buick 6" as the B-side! An slightly extended version of this is found on "Side Tracks" and the 1999 reissue of "Greatest Hits".
3. Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window? - a cool rocking non-album single which had "Highway 61 Revisited" as the B-side. This is in mono but a stereo recording exists on "Bootleg 12".
4. Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues - the live version from 5/14/66 in Liverpool, England - also was the B-side to the "I Want You" single. This track is basically exclusive to "Masterpieces", unless you're wanting to invest in the "Complete 1966 Live Performances" CD.
5. Spanish Is The Loving Tongue - another tune from the 1971 recording sessions - this one was the B-side to the "Watching The River Flow" single! This is also available on the "Pure Dylan" compilation CD!
6. George Jackson - the big-band version which is good and not found anywhere else - but yet again, Bob has annoying backup singers... sounds like the same ones from the 1973 "Dylan" album! Where is Emmylou Harris when you need her? I like the acoustic version of this song better from "Side Tracks".
7. Rita May - a "Desire" outtake and a cool B-side to the "Stuck Inside Of Mobile" Hard Rain single from 1976. Another exclusive to this CD and found nowhere else!
8. Blowin' In The Wind - from "Freewheelin" - can't say enough about this song - I think its been covered more than any other song ever has been!
9. A Hard Rain's A Gonna-Fall from "Freewheelin" - made Allen Ginsberg cry when he first heard it and for good reason! A fantastic song!
10. The Times They Are A-Changin' - title track from the pivotal 1964 album - a single was also issued of this with "Honey, Just Allow Me One More Chance" as the B-side.
11. Masters Of War - from "Freewheelin" and what a song this is! Bob performed this on his 1991 Grammy Lifetime Achievement ceremony!
12. Hurricane - from "Desire" - an 8-9 minute epic and a true story about how boxer Reuben Carter was falsely accused of murder!

CD 3
1. Maggie's Farm - from "Hard Rain" - not one of my favorite tunes but it'll do! LOL!
2. Subterranean Homesick Blues - from "Bringing It All Back Home" - cool lyrics and the cue card scene is considered to be the first music video!
3. Ballad Of A Thin Man - from "Highway 61 Revisited" - so glad to see this make it onto a compilation album! This is dark, creepy and downright strange - I think even stranger than "Visions of Johanna"
4. Mozambique - from "Desire" - a cool little romance-type ditty with Emmylou Harris on backup vocals again! I wish Bob could've got her on backup for the "Hard Rain" album!
5. This Wheel's On Fire - from "The Basement Tapes" and probably the best song from there!
6. I Want You - another hit song from Bob on the "Blonde On Blonde" album! Cool stuff!
7. Rainy Day Women #12 & 35 - a #2 hit song for Bob located on "Blonde On Blonde". Check out the MTV Unplugged performance of this from 1995! It's ROCKING!
8. Don't Think Twice, It's All Right - from "Freewheelin" - a classic country-sounding tune with great guitar finger-picking! Makes one wonder why Bob isn't in the Country Music Hall of Fame??
9. Song To Woody - a very early song dedicated to Woody Guthrie from the "Bob Dylan" debut album which stands the test of time!
10. It Ain't Me, Babe - from "Another Side" and another classic - Johnny Cash/June Carter made a hit with a cover of this - I prefer Bob's version better though!
11. Love Minus Zero/No Limit - from "Bringing It All Back Home" - happy to see this finally make in onto a compilation album! A great song and would've been a big hit had it been released as a single!
12. I'll Be Your Baby Tonight - another cool country song from "John Wesley Harding" - love the steel guitar in this one!
13. If Not For You - when it comes to picking a song from the "New Morning" album, this one is always picked! What about the others? "Went To See The Gypsy" & "Winterlude" are better songs to my ears - but this is still a good song... check out the more rockier version on "Bootleg 2"!
14. If You See Her, Say Hello - from the monumental "Blood On The Tracks" - another classic tune with great acoustic guitar playing! There is a stripped-down version of this on "Bootleg 3" but I prefer this recording.
15. Sara - from "Desire" - a poetic masterpiece (pun intended)! The last song from "Desire" and is one of the best on there besides "Oh Sister", "One More Cup Of Coffee" & "Hurricane".

So there you have it - this is a great compilation although very rare to come by - Columbia should put this back in print as they'd have Dylan fans lining up to buy it! Hopefully they'll include "Rita May" & "George Jackson (Big-Band Version)" on a future installment of the Bootleg Series! Until then, this is the only place they can be enjoyed, unless you have their original 45 record releases of course! =)

Hola,
El producto no es bueno, solo he cortado 3 tres pizzas y la rueda de corte se desprendió y ya no sirve. Desde el primer corte de pizza la rueda tenia vida propia, cortaba en todas las direcciones menos en la linea imaginaria que yo le quería indicar.
Os recomiendo invertir un poco más en uno de mejor calidad, es lo que tendré que hacer ahora.
Dragon Ball, Vol. 14: Heaven and Earth (Dragon Ball- Shonen Jump Graphic Novel)
Dragon Ball, Vol. 14: Heaven and Earth (Dragon Ball- Shonen Jump Graphic Novel)
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH TOO GOOD!!!

I was tempted to just leave it at that - it’s succinct but accurate enough!

The epic final battle between Son Goku and the Demon King Piccolo, that already began in the final pages of the last book, kicks off this volume at a blistering pace. And it is EPIC - Piccolo is after all a dude who can fire nuke-sized explosions from his hands!

Both characters go all out against each other but, even though he’s been superpowered, Goku nearly dies defeating Piccolo. No, that’s not a spoiler, the whole damn series is about Goku, he was never going to die! And of course it’s no surprise that the characters who died in the last few books are brought back to life once Piccolo is vanquished. It’s a predictable next move - they all appear in Dragon Ball Z - but still great to see happen.

All through the Piccolo storyline I’ve been wondering how Akira Toriyama’s going to make Piccolo good (in terms of his alignment), because that’s the way I’ve known the character to be prior to reading these books for the first time. I know Piccolo eventually joins the good guys - but how and why? And in the final moments of their fight, the Demon King reveals exactly how the Piccolo I was expecting came to be. At least, physically - we’ve yet to see him become good.

I said in the last review that I wouldn’t be surprised by anything else Akira Toriyama throws at me; and then God enters the book! Goku doesn’t die but he decides to take his training to the next level, goes to Heaven(!), and trains with God(!!!). Amazing. It’s kind of God and it kind of isn’t - but the reveal of who God is is pretty damn surprising.

As Goku begins training, Toriyama once again jumps the story ahead 3 years like he did before - and now I get it. The 3 year bumps are what gets Dragon Ball/kid Son Goku to Dragon Ball Z/adult Son Goku, with the Strongest Under the Heavens tournament acting as markers for a new stage in the story. I didn’t realise that before but that’s an ingenious way to show characters’ development in a martial arts story, especially as it seems so obvious! Here they are at the next level of their abilities - let’s see how they’ve changed.

Adult Son Goku finally makes his appearance in this volume, so the scene with Goku training in Heaven was the last we’ll see of that delightful scamp. It’s exciting and sad at the same time - I loved that lil guy but I’m really looking forward to the adventures an even more superpowered adult Goku is going to have!

Heaven and Earth is an amazing 14th volume in the Dragon Ball series. It’s got fantastic art as usual, stunning fights, and the story keeps getting better and better. Astonishingly, I haven’t read a bad book in this series yet and it’s easy to see why this series has done as well as it has. So, in summary:

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH TOO GOOD!!!
The Best of Roald Dahl: Stories from Over to You, Someone Like You, Kiss Kiss, and Switch Bitch
The Best of Roald Dahl: Stories from Over to You, Someone Like You, Kiss Kiss, and Switch Bitch
But, if you liked Charlie as a kid, you may just have the twisted sense of humor it takes for Dahl's adult fiction. And I do mean adult. It's a human pheremone-toutin, spouse-swappin, hoppin into bed with an unknown leper sort of extravaganza not for the faint of heart. If you like your stories with sex and your sex with irony and your irony with extra spicy irony on top of that, you may have found your new favorite author.
Naruto Uncut Boxed Set, Volume 2 (Special Edition)
Naruto Uncut Boxed Set, Volume 2 (Special Edition)
My fiance and I collect anime and we were very pleased with this volume of Naruto. The only criticism we had was the collector's box was not packaged well and was received in damaged condition. Note, this is a COLLECTOR'S ITEM. Special, LIMITED EDITION. The box was mangled, corners ruined and torn in some places. That was disappointing. Other than that, the item itself was just what we had hoped for in entertainment value.
Santorini
Santorini
Having just returned from a cruise involving Santorini this made the book more immediate and brought back memories of the choppy seas and strong winds that are often experienced in the area. The characters are well-drawn and I especially liked Commander Talbot, the laid-back skipper, who was deceptively urbane. Though I am female I do find female characters in books intensely irritating so the three in this book, having minor parts, were bearable and served to move the story along. The aristocratic classicist, Lieutenant Denholm, is an understated genius with electronics - I do prefer self-effacing men to the gung-ho types: more depth! The story was wide ranging in its setting: from the White House to Athens to Santorini and somehow very credible. Having a naval father helped me to appreciate the difficulties at sea where care and patience and tidinesss are vital, so the painstaking plans of the recovery and safe disposal of the dangerous item were believable. A good read that has not really dated if you ignore modern developments in communication and electronics. I love a thriller!!

Big & Tall Heavy Duty Executive Chair 500 Lbs Heavyweight Rated Black PU Leather Task Rolling Swivel Ergonomic Executive Office Chair with Massage Lumbar Support Armrest
Big & Tall Heavy Duty Executive Chair 500 Lbs Heavyweight Rated Black PU Leather Task Rolling Swivel Ergonomic Executive Office Chair with Massage Lumbar Support Armrest
Update: Piston is losing air after less than two weeks. Turns out the 250 lb limit mentioned once in the description is far for accurate than the 500 lb limit claim. Junk.

Original Review: First of all, opened up the box to find the bolts, wrench, and opened blister pack all jumbled loose in a tied off bag. Never a good sign. Looking at the instructions though all parts were there and apparently.. used. The torque wrench thing was partially rounded out. Next came assembly. This one chair gave me more trouble than everything else combined that I have assembled in the last three years. Holes barely lined up. Bolts barely turned. Noticed at least two of the bolts had really rough/damaged thread cuts. Finally got it assembled using my own wrench. Everything is now tight and while nothing feels like it moves or shifts, it feels slightly unstable. I'm nowhere near 500 pounds but its just my guess that whoever is around that weight will destroy this chair within two months. There is no way in my opinion that the 500 weight limit is reasonable for this chair. Lets see how long 250 lbs lasts in it.

Costway Swivel Accent Chair, Contemporary Makeup Chair with Chrome Frame, Height-Adjustable, Tufted Round-Back, Modern Vanity Chair for Lounge, Pub, Bar, White
I bought this for my vanity set up. It’s very cute and I like the height adjuster. It’s not super high quality and the instructions weren’t super clear - you need to sit on the chair and toggle the height adjustment to get it to engage.

Putting it together was very fast and easy, there are only 3-4 parts to worry about and they mostly just slip into each other. I was just confused about the height adjustment part and couldn’t get it to engage until I sat in it and tried, after watching a YouTube video for it.

For the price, I’m very happy with my purchase. I hope it holds up.
