How Business Works
How Business Works

Edition: Hardcover
Price: $19.53

5.0 out of 5 stars Good graphic presentations on complexities of business topics, May 4, 2015
This review is from: How Business Works (Hardcover)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is perhaps the best book on how business works I have read so far. The topics, ranging from business structure to board vs. management to marketing to financials to more, are well organized. Each topic is divided into well defined subtopics which are then treated in a two-page spread with plenty of DK's trademark graphics. I'm no newbie to the business world but this is the first book I've found that I could recommend to my kids. Not only are the text and graphic explanations easy to peruse, but the discussions are accurate, which is often not the case with many "for beginners" titles. I highly recommend this book as a gentle introduction to business. The book was written by UK-based writers but has been edited for a US audience (e.g., inc's as opposed to Ltd's).


Ultimate NES Remix - Nintendo 3DS

4.0 out of 5 stars Tasting plate of sundry classic Nintendo 8-bit goodies, April 29, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This remix of NES titles from Nintendo is like a medley song: you get a bit of each of the old games included. To use another analogy, it's like a tasting menu. You don't get the whole game but just bits and pieces presented in different play modes.

For people like me who grew up playing these NES classics it's a way to play them again without worrying about beating a whole stage or the whole game. Just enjoy a couple of minutes of play and then back to the more pressing issues of our mundane existence.

But for younger gamers who don't have a taste for older, pixelated, 2D games, this is bound to be extremely boring.

4.0 out of 5 stars Upscaled fun for fans of the trilogy, April 29, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The first Predator film is still a classic although the other two are a little on the boring side. The Blu-Ray conversion is decent but there's a dearth of bonus materials.


eBay For Dummies
eBay For Dummies

1.0 out of 5 stars Not appropriate for newcomers to eBay, April 29, 2015
This review is from: eBay For Dummies (Paperback)
Like the ebay site, this book is very difficult to use for a newbie. The first chapter is really poorly written, throwing you into the midst without any gentle introduction. Anyone interested in this book should read the first chapter here to see if the style is for you.

Also, there is a lot of fluff language in the text. And a lot of bullet points. And a lot of cross references which really drove me crazy. Go to a later chapter or go to a back chapter seems to be on every page. Tons of abuse of parentheses, as well. Finally, the screenshots are tiny. Anyone over 40 will not be able to comfortably see the screenshots.

Very disappointed in this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Underpants that work well as diapers for older kids, April 16, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The GoodNites bedtime underpants are the best prevention for boys who still "leak" at an older age. These L/XL sizes are very versatile and fit a wide range of boys. All my boys can fit into these very comfortably. We have not had a single leak, even when the boys dream about going to the loo and end up using the GoodNites for convenience.

Obviously, I can't wait for the day when the boys can wear regular underwear like their age peers. But I guess they have bad genes. :-D Until that day comes, they are secure in these high-quality night-time underpants.

Very high quality T-shirt that still looks new even after over a dozen washings in a household washing machine. Fits well if you get the right size. Love the design.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very stylish and good quality, but on the heavy side, April 14, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a very nice women's timepiece. It has a pleasing design and the popular 38mm size. The three small subdial windows show day of week, day of month and hour in 24h format. (The included user manual does not mention the last subdial mode. This particular model does not have a stopwatch function.) It looks stylish on any woman's wrist and is appropriate for most occasions. It's rated 3ATM which means it's safe to wear in showers or washing hands, but not for swimming - much like the new Apple Watch.

The reason I give it 4 stars is it does feel heavy - heavier than similarly priced watches we've bought from Amazon over the last few years. The heft is enough to make it a little less than the perfect daily wear I think most would like. Some women probably don't mind, but the manufacturer should have shaved a little weight to make the watch more comfortable. The strap is high quality and easy to close and open.

If heavy watches don't bother you, this would be a top choice in this price range.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best wine opener I've used, April 7, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I love wine and this Artaste wine opener is the best I have used. The kit makes it easy to 1) cut the foil with the built-in cutter, 2) insert the corkscrew into the cork, and 3) take out the cork. It comes packaged in a nice clear plastic box which can also be used to store and display the kit. An extra corkscrew is included as well. Very practical, indeed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great card, works in New 3DS, really fast, April 3, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this microSD card to use with the New Nintendo 3DS XL. It is totally compatible. And it's fast! 3DS downloadable games don't take up much space and I don't put music on it, so it should last a long time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another good upgraded version, April 3, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have been playing DOA since the first one. Yes, I play DOA not really for the fighting gameplay but for something else. What can I say? I reviewed a couple of older versions before and DOA5 for PS4 is the best version so far even though it's not a new game. The graphics is not among the best on Ps4 but to me that's a good thing, otherwise I would not be able to sleep at night. Frame rate is solid, and the PS4 controller is perfect for fighting games.

If you are not into fighting games, this game is then really for guys who like certain things. If you like fighting games but don't need to play every title in the genre, DOA is not a series you will enjoy.
