1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money, this has no amplification., March 18, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Listen Up Personal Sound Amplifier
I bought this amplifier for my mother.
Before giving it to her, I tried it out for myself.
I turned on the television and tried listening to it with, and without the Listen UP.
With the Listen UP volume control at maximum, the TV was no louder than when I took it out of my ears.

The Listen UP is now in my trash can. I'll try another brand.

Offered by Lux Products Corporation
Price: $26.39

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple Operation, Big Numbers, December 13, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I installed this thermostat in 10 minutes.
It's simple to work, no programming.
The numbers are big enough that we can see them without glasses.
It does take batteries, so you'll want to keep spares handy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Service, December 13, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a nice little laptop.
I had a problem where a message kept popping up, saying "Windows is not genuine."
Although the warranty period had passed, I contacted Windows IT Tech and he fixed the problem over the internet.
Now it's all good.

I bought identical machines for my wife and daughter.


A Personal Odyssey
A Personal Odyssey
by Thomas Sowell
Edition: Paperback
Price: $15.96

5.0 out of 5 stars How one of the great minds of our time was formed, in a compelling, well written story, November 28, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: A Personal Odyssey (Paperback)
My favorite author gives an account of his life, from his early childhood in segregated North Carolina, to his school days in Harlem, his service in the Marine Corps (with some anecdotes sure to amuse veterans), his education at Howard, Harvard and U of Chicago, his real education serving in the US Department of Labor, his conversion from Communist to Conservative, his suffering as a professor in the Silly Sixties, and more. It's a compelling story and it provides insights into how one of the great minds of our time was formed.


We Are Doomed: Reclaiming Conservative Pessimism
We Are Doomed: Reclaiming Conservative Pessimism
by John Derbyshire
Edition: Hardcover
51 used & new from $0.01

4.0 out of 5 stars A toung-in-cheek apocolypse, November 28, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Derb points out that the end of civilization is at hand and backs the idea up with tons of evidence. The book probably deserves five stars, but the fact that the end is near is pretty obvious, you don't need an intellectual of Derb's caliber to point it out.


Seeing Calvin Coolidge in a Dream
Seeing Calvin Coolidge in a Dream
by John Derbyshire
Edition: Hardcover
52 used & new from $0.01

5.0 out of 5 stars Great historical novel set in three countries, November 28, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a great historical novel. The primary character escapes from Communist China, learns his way around Hong Kong, and migrates to America. The author uses the story to share some too little-known facts about the history of all three counties. A friend of mine who is from Hong Kong read the book and was impressed by the author's detailed knowledge of his homeland. At the end of the book, the hero has to resolve a moral dilema.


Head First PHP & MySQL
Head First PHP & MySQL

Edition: Paperback
Price: $30.23

3.0 out of 5 stars Teaching PHP in the format of an illustrated novel. It doesn't work for me., November 28, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Head First PHP & MySQL (Paperback)
This book teaches the PHP computer language by telling a story. It uses "brain science" to teach the subject in a way designed to help you remember the important points. I dislike this style. In the first place, it takes a small amount of information and spreads it across many pages amid a novel about your 'Elvis website.' Secondly, it doesn't serve well as a reference book, since it's hard to find the information you want in the voluminous text.

A Conflict of Visions: Ideological Origins of Political Struggles

5.0 out of 5 stars Want to know how an intelligent person can be a progressive?, November 28, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Like everything from Sowell, this book is brilliant. It explores the intellectual differences between conservatives and progressives. If you want to understand the other side's logic, and how they can possibly think they're right, this book is essential.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Little illuminated Magnifier, November 28, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These are VERY useful around the laboratory. When you can't conveniently carry something over to the microscope, this illuminated magnifier saves a lot of time.

That said, there was no reason to put two magnifiers on the glasses. The focal point is half an inch in front of each lens, so you'll never focus both eyes on the same object. But, you can take one of the magnifiers off in 30 seconds with a screwdriver.

5.0 out of 5 stars New insights into human nature and how we think about right and wrong, November 28, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book provides new insights into human nature and how we think about morality. It also provides some insights into our political behavior, which could possibly help progressives and conservatives understand one another.
