5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant photography; Inventively presented, November 2, 2011
This review is from: Menagerie (Hardcover)
I've loved Sharon Montrose's work for a long time; have a number of her books and prints. I would have been satisfied if "Menagerie" were just a catalog of this unique series of the photographer's images. It's not that at all, though. This book surprised me with its witty displays and subtly beautiful combinations of textures, colors and shapes. The timing and progression from the book's beginning to end, as well as the complete variation throughout, make it a joy to turn the pages. It's not predictable or repetitive.
There's nothing traditional or stale about the format of this small treasure. The layout and design of the book enhance the way of seeing that makes her photos so powerful. It's impossible to view "Menagerie" without
A. wanting multiple prints on your wall right away.
B. gaining a much greater appreciation for presentation and display.

KRUPS FLF2J4 Cordless Electric Kettle, Black
KRUPS FLF2J4 Cordless Electric Kettle, Black

2.0 out of 5 stars Terrible customer service, unreliable product., January 3, 2011
I liked this kettle while it worked, but it didn't work long enough. It began leaking at the bottom at just over a year, and Krups' customer service was dreadful. They don't stand by their products, and I won't make the mistake of buying one again. Though I don't believe they need to warranty an item such as this one indefinitely, for the price it should last more than a year. To make matters worse, Krups diverts warranty and repair issues to a third-party repair company, thereby limiting Krups' own dedication to customer support.
Two stars because it was good while it lasted.
Goodbye, Krups.

5.0 out of 5 stars Positive, encouraging guidebook w/ much useful information presented clearly., June 5, 2008
I've been reading the authors' blog, for more than a year, so I had a pretty good idea what to expect from this book, and I was not in the least disappointed. I think perhaps even more than all of the practical advice and specific directions in The Urban Homestead, Coyne and Knutzen's perspective and approach are what I value most. There's an overriding attitude--almost philosophy, really--that the authors convey so well. It's positive yet somehow never sappy. They recommend doing what you can and doing what you like.

They also warn: "Work makes work" in the gardening section, and to me that perspective is more valuable than knowing how frequently to water my sweet peppers once they've flowered. (Which brings up another thing I've enjoyed so much about reading this book and the H.E. blog: The blog pointed me to Pat Welsh's Southern California Gardening for more specific and advanced gardening advice.)

The Urban Homestead is laid out in a way that makes it easy to pick up and read a little bit here and there. And I've been picking up my copy every chance I get, rereading sections, too, both for knowledge and enjoyment. It's really oriented toward people with a new or recent interest in living more like their great-grandparents did, more engaged in the world around them, even if that world is a major metropolis. It's less about preparing for disaster than thwarting it.

If you want to ditch your TV, buy less crap at the supermarket, learn how to use a bicycle to transport your self and your stuff, conserve, reuse, bake, make and otherwise reject so many things that until recently our society believed were progress, this book will get you going on the right path.
