MARGARET THATCHER: IRON LADY VOL 2
This book made its way onto my bookshelf thanks to a thoughtful gift from my parents. I've always had an admiration of Thatcher, not because of any particular policy (admittedly I didn't know that much …
reviewed Kindle Wireless Reading Device, Wi-Fi.... March 13, 2011
I was apprehensive about the Kindle. From what I've read of reviews of previous models, it seems I was right to put off buying one of these for so long. I'm extremely impressed by this device for two …

I Am Ozzy
I'm a huge fan of Ozzy's, have been for many years. By no means am I as dedicated or as long lasting a fan as others who will have read this book, and if I'm honest, I'm not that much into rock music …
Destiny Disrupted: A History of the World Through

The Karate Kid (2010)
Having not seen the original Karate Kid for many years, the content, story and overall feel of the original is simply lost in the annals of time as a result of my terrible memory. So with that, I'll say …

The Third Man: Life at the Heart of New Labour
   No, politicians aren't the most popular people in the world, and I think it's fair to say that "Mandy" is one of the worst of an already bad bunch. The New Labour project …

 The war in Afghanistan is one that is not very popular in the eyes of the citizens of both America and the UK; and I'm sure many other countries involved also. But whether you're in favour of the …

The Skinny on Success: Why not you?
I expected this to be very typical of what you hear from the self help books when relating to success. Promoting the idea that if you work hard enough you can achieve anything you want; but this maintained …
The Skinny on Willpower: How to Develop Self
