This manual offers everyone an eye opening experience. Y2K is coming and there is no getting around it, but the authors of this book have simply gotten it together! They offer practical advice to a possible crisis. They are not extremists! This book is filled with solutions to problems that could occur with or without the possible effects of Y2K. I didn't realize this until I read this book. I believe this book is your best tool to keep on hand for all your household needs Y2K or not.

This is a great resource not only for Y2K preparation, but for use in the future. I recently was married and quickly realized I wasn't really preparing for myself any more I have to prepare for my now wife. I really was glad to come across this book and be able to use it. It covers all topics thoroughly and it gives you confidence. We are ready...are you? If not, definately get a copy of this book / manual. You won't be disappointed.

My husband and I read this book and found it to be the most helpful resource available. I, personally, loved the tear out shopping guide. When I am out doing errands, I pull my list out and check it over to purchase anything on the list I might need. It has been a great tool. My husband likes the detail on all the "manly" stuff. Like the electrical and gas service chapters. He plans on using this as a reference tool for a long time. We will be prepared!

Imaginative, fantastic, and extremely funny adventure
This book is one of my favorite books I have ever read. It is one of those gems you find that no one else seems to know about. The illustrations are fun, the story is comical, not in a silly, stupid way that some "funny" stories can be, but in a way that will actually make you laugh out loud. And the story is actually a very nice story, ending without giving you the sense that other books can of, "Well, it had some nice parts, but what was the point?" I enjoyed it as a child, and I still enjoy it as an adult (well, semi-adult). I only hope that my copy will survive for my own children.

I chose this book because it is by my fourth favorite comedien, Terry Jones. It is about a boy named Nicobobinus and his friend Rosie, who go to find the land of the Dragons, because Nicobobinus can do anything. My favorite character is the Golden man, because it is funny that a gold statue walks, talks, and has servents.

This book was great!!!
This book is a great one for any young, or old person who is looking for a wonderful, and adventurous story. I read this book a long time ago and couldn't help but look it up to see if there were more readers who felt the same way about it.It is about a young boy and girl who go on a long journey to find dragons blood.They have a very close call many times, but they finaly find it and continue on their journey safely.I can't wait to read it again.

Skip the Movie and Read This!
Just a quick glance at the myriad of Daredevil trade paperbacks out there will give some indication of how many permutations this character has gone through. Unfortunately few truly understand the intricacies of the character who can turn into a third-rate ninja in one writer's hands and a cut-rate Spider-man in another's.

Luckily Brian Michael Bendis "gets" Daredevil - much as Miller and Smith have before him. As others have said in their reviews before this one, this is certainly not a conventional superhero tale as it focuses more on Matt Murdock and less on his costumed alter-ego. What appearances there are from the spandex set are limited but very effective. And you have to give credit to ANY writer who can make Mr. Hyde interesting, if only for a few panels.

Two disapointments: 1) The conniving Mr. Silke, who basically sets Murdock up for much of the misery he experiences in these issues, essentially becomes a castrated character barely even appearing in these pages. Perhaps Bendis has something up his sleeve for Silke. I hope so, as this story really wastes his potential.
2) The final third or so of the book is taken up with a White Tiger storyline that is moderately good, but certaily nothing like the Bendis/Maleev stories that precede it.

Bottom Line: The Hollywood screenwriters could learn a LOT from Bendis and Maleev. This is a worthwhile read!

Be warned: This collection may cover Daredevil #32-40, but Daredevil hardly appears at all. There's only a brief appearance by a super-villian, and that's by the fourth-string Mr. Hyde. There are cameos galore, but of the appearances by Spider-Man, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Elektra, Jessica Jones and the White Tiger, only Spider-man does any real "super-heroing". The story doesn't advance or conclude with a big battle royale and a resolve where our hero saves the day and the world is put right, but with...well, find that out for yourself.

This is the best Daredevil storyline since Born Again.

Read Underboss before this to get the full story. In breif: Daredevil's secret identity has been outed by a tabloid newspaper (whose source is also an unconventional surprise). The repercussions are real and, no, there won't be a resolve with both Matt Murdock and someone else disguised as Daredevil appearring in the same place at the same time.

Bendis' strength as a writer of dialogue and creating memorable, vital characters is at its' peak here. Matt Murdock creates his own problems and ruins good opportunities because of his own flaws, not some super-baddie vowing revenge. Maleev's artwork is dark, gritty, moody and somber: an ideal match for Daredevil (and the colors by Matt Hollingworth and even the lettering by Richard Starkings are also well-suited and noteworthy).

Bendis and Maleev as a creative team for daredevil is so effective and evocative because they were both clearly influenced by Frank Miller. However, they are are not just aping Miller, they're embellishing. Their vision for Daredevil will forever change the character and in time may be remembered as just as important as Millers'.

The only drawback is the artwork in the last White Tiger story. It's okay, and it's a good story but without Maleev, it's just not the same, and it would have been really interesting to see what Maleev would have done with the story-line.

Pick this up. It's not just the best mainstream comic today, it may be the best thing in the entire field.

Character Driven, Intense Super Hero Tale
Matt Murdock, aka Daredevil, faces the worst nightmare for masked adventurer when the front page of the tabloids proclaim to the world that he is Daredevil. His life is upended, the media is camped outside his aprtment and hounding his every mood, and Foggy tells Matt that maybe he should quit. This story plumbs the depth of the character, Matt not Daredevil, and what compels Matt to put on the costume. Very few baddies in this volume, it's all about Matt and Foggy, which isn't a bad thing. Guest appearances include Luke Cage, Jessica Jones (ALIAS), the Black Widow, and Spiderman.

The pencils by alex maleev are incredible. His work constantly improves with each issue of Daredevil he draws. Buy this book. Bendis' best Daredevil story so far.

If this is your first Daredevil book, I suggest picking up "Underboss" before you read this book.

A Wonderful Resource for Plains Indian Information Seekers!
At first glance this book looks like it is simply another children's book but once you open it the beautiful, full color photos speak for themselves! The book is 100% full color and shows a variety of men and women of different Plains tribal affiliations and their routines of daily life. Everything from styles of clothing to weapons, to men's and women's roles is covered in accurate, deatiled photography accompanied by brief commentary. Each subject is attired in meticulously replicated regalia done by the author who is a well known and respected Plains Indian authority. Another nice feature is the addition of a resource page listing historical sites of the Great Plains region. For such a small price tag this is one book that should be on every American history buff's bookshelf! You will not be disappointed!

An Excellent Book for Children or Craftworkers
Michael Terry's "Daily Life in a Plains Indian Village, 1868" is a wonderful book that, although geared toward children and adolescents, provides a colorful overview of the ways of life of the Plains Indian peoples for all readers. The full color, large photograaphs on every page are incredible. Northern Palins replica makers and craftworkers will also find a wealth of close-up photos and descriptions of tools, weapons, and art to which they can refer in their work. If you wish you could see the Plains Indians in the full color splendor for which they are known then this is the book for you!

Beautiful! Very discriptive! Excellent for all!
A very well done, beautifully illustrated book for all ages, highly recommend it.

not just for brits
since i saw "holy grail" 6 years ago, (i was 10) i have been hell bent on finding everything the pythons ever did. unfortunately most of my friends don't share my enthusiasm for british comedy, but i think it should be known that the occasional american recognizes comedic genius when she sees it. for all those who live in areas where mention of the pythons is scarce, this is a must have. you'll be quoting them in your head at school, at work, on the bus, wherever. just ignore the people who turn and look when you burst out laughing.

This is Abuse....Stupid Git
Well, what CAN be said? It is good to see humour spelled with a pair of U's (per the King's English). Whilst doth contain numerous funny bits, perhaps the American palate is not suited for wit which possesses intellectual subtleties.

For our American friends I recommend Rosanne Arnold, fluorescent plaid sport-coats (with matching white 5cm/2" belt), premium Wisconsin 3 week old processed cheese slices, Napa Valley's finest blush and a domestic rum tipped Colt cigar.

And Now For Something Completely Worth It
A hilarious book! Definitely worth reading over and over. This book is ideal for Python Maniacs and was hard to find up until this point. This is even funnier than "Wenn ist das Nunstuck git und Slotermeyer? Ja! Beirhund das Oder die Flipperwaldt Gersput" (Whatever that means) If you haven't read the Pocketful of Python Series yet, What in the bloody hell are you waiting for? Attention, Python Maniacs... Read this book. You'll love it!

I laughed until I couldn't breathe...
Remember the Python routine about a "killer joke?"

This book came close to being a collection of such jokes. Nearly every story made me, and several of my friends, laugh until we almost couldn't breathe.

Over twenty five years later, it still has the same effect.


Buy and destroy
I had hoped that civilized society had seen the last of Dr. Fegg's nasty little pamphlet. This is a work a certified lunatic who is now a depleted geriatric living on the outskirts of the Scotish outer not be fooled!!...the right and kind fellows of the English variety troop, aptly named Monty's Python had no hand in this. The true tale is that of a heartless killer has been trying to ruin the nights sleep of innocent children worldwide with this satanic bedtime treatise. Buy what is left of these books and burn them instantly!


Dr. Fegg's Nasty Book for Boys and Girls
I had this book as a child and it was my first introduction to 'Monty Pythonesque' humor. The sheer silliness of it was hilarious. All my friends loved it too. In fact, I believe one of them borrowed it on a permanent basis, without my knowledge, if you know what I mean...nudge, nudge, wink, wink. Anyways, I am now in search of a copy for my young daughter.
