No Good Deed is a well written, gripping book with a good plot. M.P. McDonald is an excellent writer that makes the story come alive. I'm looking forward to more books by McDonald and hope there's a new one out soon.

This is a very comprehensive guide to Poland. I spent over a week in Poland and used this ebook to get around. The guide is well written, easy to navigate, and contains down to earth suggestions. Beautiful pictures throughout. I love this ebook and am so glad I got it! I wouldn't have had so many wonderful experiences without this guide.

They don't come any better than MobileReference Travel guides. The Puerto Rico guide is packed with detailed historical and cultural information, contains superb illustrations and easy-to-follow maps. I am planning a short trip to Puerto Rico and I found this ebook to be very good at pointing out things to do and places to see. I definitely prefer this ebook over some of the other travel guides I have read.

This is an indispensable crime novel that reads like lightning. Block is one of my favorite authors. His skillful storytelling promises a fun read every time and his distinctive voice ensures familiarity.

I used this ebook extensively on my recent trip to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. This guide provides enough detail to get one going and lavish illustrations to whet one's appetite for the real things to be seen. In addition, the ebook contains maps and phrasebook. If one can take only one resource on a trip to Ecuador, I'd recommend this one.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The ebook addresses the needs of those traveling from the U.S. The key sites are outlined thoroughly, so you don't need to hire a tour guide if you don't want to spend the money. I would highly recommend this ebook to anyone going to Buenos Aires. The guide gives practical advice regarding culture, safety, places to stay, how to navigate the city, prices of transportation, food and hotels, and much much more! The highly detailed maps are very useful. The layout of the ebook is wonderful.

Travel Hong Kong Illustrated Guide, Phrasebook and Maps. Entertainment Bonus: FREE Sudoku Puzzles & "The Buddhist Catechism" by Henry Steel Olcott (Mobi Travel)

This guide book was excellant. It was spot on for shopping, dining and site-seeing. There is a section on the history of Hong Kong that is great, it enabled us to be better equiped to deal with the different types of people we encountered. The information on the hotels was perfect also, we stayed with some friends house but visited some of the hotels to gage the prices and they were very accurate with the exception of a few hotels that changed the prices.
Overall, this is an excellent, accurate, and carefully researched guide, full of helpful information. Mobilereference is right on top of its subject, and you couldn't ask for a better, more complete guide to Hong Kong. I recommend Mobilereference guide books for everyone.

P.S. Thanks for the Entertainment Bonus -- Sudoku Puzzles!!!!!!!

Medical Encyclopedia - the World's Biggest Medical Encyclopedia for Mobile Devices. 150,000 Articles. (Mobi Medical)

My family has always relied on the old Medical Encyclopedia; this new electronic edition is terrific. It has more definitions and more practical information. It contains medical abbreviations and terminology, drugs and chemicals, anatomy illustrations, medical tests and nutrition, and much more... It has over 150,000 interlinked articles!
With all the questionable health information on the Web, it's good to have all the basics in an up-to-date guide from a source you can trust. It's a great way to look up symptoms, diseases, body parts, etc, without having to go online. I think every household should have one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tartuffe and more..., April 23, 2010

Works of Moliere. Tartuffe, The Imaginary Invalid, The Miser, The Pretentious Young Ladies, Amphitryon and more (mobi)

Intriguing and entertaining, the play Tartuffe is a satire displaying the scandalous truths and facades of the seventeenth century. Through reading the play the audience is able to see the deception of people and that we can not always judge by what we see. Moliere brings about this concept through his witty play, and in such a manner that you can't put it down. In Tartuffe, Moliere uses the characterization, rhyme scheme, setting, and irony to effectively inform an every day audience about the distinction between appearances versus reality.

I would highly recommend this book to all people fifteen and over because not only does Moliere give you insights on life, but also he is very entertaining and satirical. Due to the rhymed couplets, the book is a very quick read and it is enjoyable because of the irony and witty diction used throughout. Tartuffe is guaranteed to make you laugh and it will institute deep thinking for those wanting to read an academic work.
