Strong enough for vigorous snowshoeing through the woods. Warm enough for blowing snow when the winds rips cold and hard. Much appreciated.

I'm chief dishwasher in an household without an mechanical dishwasher. I've been using these gloves for two months now and they've exceeded my expectations. Substantial enough so I'm not worried about a tear or leak from simple pressure and use; flexible enough to manipulate all manner of dishes, cookware, and silverware. I was mildly skeptical of going for the higher priced ones but am now very glad I did. The complaint about a slippery grip is silly in my experience. The texture on the finger and palm is easily sufficient for secure work. Using the size guide for my order, mine fit perfectly. I use them everyday, usually twice, and they promise to more than go the distance.

OK, some of the one-star reviews have a point about the bristles being less pliable than more expensive brushes, like the one I use for every-day shaving. But as a travel brush and for the price -- I cannot imagine any cause for complaint. Far from it, the portability (ventilation for drying with the brush inserted in the case, etc. ec.) and quality (case is solid and well-machined), make this is one of my most fortunate purchases. And this is after a year of use and four-five long trips where it was my daily brush. Verdict: excellent value and product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helpful, useful for "third way" search, May 1, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Byrne's introduction to and interpretation of Burke's legacy is helpful on both counts. For those new to Burke, he provides a helpful overview of the range and development as well as the consistency of Burke's thought. Byrne is especially helpful in drawing on the works that arose from Burke's reflections on the American Revolution, the British in India, and Irish situation as well as the more widely-known response to the French Revolution.

Byrne also presents a good case for Burke's thought as "post-modern" in the sense of offering flexibility and attention to context far beyond that usually granted or discerned in those who argue that tradition can provide access to transcendent sources of value. The central concept of the "moral imagination" is especially helpful in organizing these insights as well as demonstrating Burke's value for moving beyond tired absolutist/relativist, left/right boxes all too familiar in social and political argument.

In the Kindle version, footnote access worked reasonably well. This has been a serious problem with other e-format texts and it is particularly important for this work since the notes contain helpful comment as well guiding the reader through the range of primary material. I notice the Kindle price has jumped up a good bit since my purchase. I would like to think it's a result of demand since I believe this book very helpful in the search for a "third way" beyond cut-and-paste compromise in our ongoing values argument.

Prayer of Saint Ephrem the Syrian

4.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what it says, May 20, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I purchased this e-book expecting "Sister Mary" to have added brief or longer comments on this wonderful prayer. Instead, what arrived was....a familiar English translation of The Prayer of St. Ephrem. No more. No less. Is it worth $1.25 to have these words in electronic book form? Maybe. It provided me with an opportunity to exercise the "humility" for which St. Ephrem invites us to pray. A tool as good as its use.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost A Great Book, October 16, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If measured by the number of Amazon orders for its cited works (many new to me or long-dismissed)this book led me to consider, I would have to give THE MASTER five stars. Exciting, well-documented, thought-provoking to the max.

Morever the way THE MASTER presents neurological research as a part of its more global argument in a way that helped this non-scientist understand both the usefulness and limits of such "hard" data. The treatment of science, philosphy, art, and religion throughout the book is balanced and wise.

I subtract one star as a wish for tighter editing. The book''s length and philosophical range greatly limit the range of readers I can imagine willing to work through its pages. I may, however, underestimate those readers as well as the depth and complexity required by a strong foundation, motive, and direction for cultural change. Which it provides!

5.0 out of 5 stars Make it new, August 21, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Dominant Curve (Audio CD)
The modernist impulse to "make it new" often results in the most insipid, boring, self-obsessed trivia you can (but hate to) imagine. But sometimes, as in this effort and program by Brooklyn Rider, it happens, beautifully. The centerpiece, Debussy's String Quartet, offers one of the most lively AND thoughtful renderings of this standard work. Would be worth the disc itself. But the four surrounding pieces (all new to my ears) reflect and bring entirely new dimensions to this old, familiar friend as well as offering their own delights. Think of a fine old plant in your garden unexpectedly sending out new tendrils. Listen to all the parts and then to the whole....because it is. New as can be only the very best of the old. In the right hands. Ride on Brooklyn Rider!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Tale of the Times, July 18, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
While clearly distinguishing multiple strands in the literary, political, personal, and spiritual life of neoconservative author and Commentary editor (1955-1995) Norman Podhoretz, this elegant biography imitates his pugnacious attempt to grasp and shape those strands entire. It is a formidable attempt and largely succeeds. While small-scale skirmishes in NY literary salons and larger conflicts shaping a neo-liberal (a label Jeffers persuasively argues is more apt than neocon) politics occasionally threaten to overwhelm the larger narrative, Jeffers' prose and careful selections help the reader to continue to see the larger story.
From a 1970 spring epiphany to a multitude of friendships forged, stretched, and shattered (Trilling, Mailer, Baldwin, Moynihan), Jeffers clearly connects Podhoretz's personal and spiritual life to his writing, editing, and politics. You need not agree with any, much less all of Podhoretz's judgments to appreciate his story and its telling. The canvas as well as the portrait is larger: a fine account of an attempt to speak, work, hate, love, and live with integrity through fractured times. Anyone seeking insight into the tumult and legacy of our recent American past can read it with interest and profit.
