2.0 out of 5 stars Buy the silicone version. Not this one, July 23 2016

This is the foamy version of Astroglide... It is clear, yes, but turns foamy when you use it. Terrible for jelking.. Too runny and foamy.
Astroglide Silicone lube is 10times better!

3.0 out of 5 stars It fits and looks good.. I am only worried about the water ..., July 15 2016

It fits the GS5 correctly.. It just doesn't click into the device the same way. The original backing has more clicks in the center of the phone to push in to. This backing only has clicks on the edges of the device..

It fits and looks good.. I am only worried about the water protection with this backing. I don't trust it as much... I highly doubt samsung would cover water damage for a backing that is not original...

3.0 out of 5 stars Mostly common sense., July 10 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Most everything in this book is common sense.

It is also entitled wrong. The first 14 ways is about budgeting, setting goals, and getting out of debt--common sense. The 15-30th ways are about learning how to shop frugally--again not about inceasing your income at all. 31-45 is how to increase your income at work--common sense. The rest of the book isn't bad. But, It's mostly common sense...

Money Management for Dummies is probably a much better book.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's pretty good..., March 19 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I'm almost finished going through the book. I am on week 45 right now... But I can play day 365 very easily....

I have been playing guitar for the last 22yrs(I haven't actually 'practiced' all those years IMS), so most of the exercises are easy.. I started going through this book a few months ago; I do a few sessions per day starting at the fastest tempo that I can handle and work my way up to the highest tempo.

Most of the exercises are fairly easy but some get more challenging as you go through it... I was always a master at alternate picking, string skipping, legatos and arpeggios(those are very easy to me).. As you get further; the jazz exercises get to be a challenge; as I've never really played jazz chords all that much before this.. Some of the country ones are a challenge as well.. And if you're new to sweep picking, as I was, then this is also a good start to practice your 'rolling finger' technique...

With all that said it is not a 'super advanced' book. But, it's pretty good for someone that wants to hone in on their guitar playing development; or may have reached a plateau in their playing and can challenge themselves with something that they may not be used to playing.... For me it was the Jazz ones and country bending techniques....

As far as it being 'begining to advanced'.... Well... It's definitely not a book for someone who only knows a few chords.....
If your mother just taught you the basic major and minor chords; you might want to learn more first... If you took lessons for a year or so you can start with this I guess.. But, you might get too challenged as a beginner and get very discouraged...

IMO there are exercises in week 52 that are easier than in the previous weeks...

Let each guitarist make his/her discernment...

It's a good wallet.. It doesn't hold as much cards as my previous wallet did(my last wallet was a bit nicer; but not found anywhere)....

It is a very good slim wallet though.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's better than most other wallets, June 20 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This wallet is ok.. It's better than most other wallets.. But, it's not nearly as good as my previous wallet.

My previous wallet was smaller, thinner and held more cards than this wallet can hold. This wallet is bigger, is way too tight, cards are hard to pull out(even though I have 2 less cards in it than I had in my thinner wallet... I was initially skeptical because of the money clip; I thought it would be too bulky(I don't carry cash)... It's not even the bulkiness, it's the tightness of the leather...

My last wallet was a 'swiss gear' thin wallet and it was 'perfect' for people who don't carry any cash on them; I just can't find that exact wallet anywhere I looked.... It lasted me a few years, and it held more cards, was super thin and un-noticeable... I think it was made out of a thinner, more stretchier leather so the cards can pull out much easier... Wish I could find where to buy my old wallet..

Compared to other wallets i've had, this is good.. Once I purchased that thin 'swiss gear' wallet; this 'Insten' wallet doesn't even come close!!
