More About the Author

Prof Ian Shaw - Brief Biography

Ian Shaw is an author, broadcaster and academic. He was appointed Professor of Toxicology in the Department of Chemistry, University of Canterbury, New Zealand in February 2009, immediately before this he had been Pro Vice-Chancellor (Science) of the University of Canterbury since March 2004. He obtained a 1st Class Honours degree in Biochemistry from the University of Bath, England and gained his PhD in Biochemistry (Toxicology) at the University of Birmingham, England. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, the Royal College of Pathologists and the Institute of Food Science & Technology and for two years served as a Justice of the Peace for Fleetwood in Lancashire. His various occupations have led him from the first UK lectureship in toxicology at University College London (1981-1985), to a short time in industry as Senior Clinical Scientist for Boehringer Ingelheim, a German Pharmaceuticals Company (1985-1987), to the Central Veterinary Laboratory where he became Head of the Biochemistry Department (1987-1992), then to a Professorship in Toxicology and Head of the Department of Applied Biology at the University of Central Lancashire (1992-2000) before leaving the UK for New Zealand to take up the post of National Food Safety Programme Manager at the Institute of Environmental Science & Research (ESR).

He has been a member of many UK committees and held a number of Honorary Positions, including the Working Party on Natural Toxicants in Food, the Working Party on Veterinary Residues in Animal Products, and UK Government's Advisory Committee on Animal Feedingstuffs, and Advisory Committee on Pesticides. He was a Visiting Consultant Toxicologist to Preston Health Authority in the UK between 1995 and 2000. He was Chairman of the UK Government's Pesticide Residues Committee (1994 - 2000) and despite moving to New Zealand in April 2000 he retained Chairmanship until December 2000 travelling to the UK for committee meetings. He has established his standing in New Zealand initially via his membership of the New Zealand Food Safety Advisory Board which advised ministers on food safety issues and policy; and now by his membership of the New Zealand Food Safety Academy, a government department advisory group.

He has been external examiner for undergraduate degrees of the University of North London and the University of London, a member of the Royal Society of Chemistry's Applications and Examination Committee, and examined post-graduate theses for the Universities of Birmingham, East Anglia, North London, King's College London, the University of Auckland and the University of Otago.

He has written approximately 120 scientific articles, written for newspapers and appeared on numerous TV and radio programmes. He has spent a significant amount of time (British Council-funded) in Indonesia studying pesticides and their effects upon women and children. He holds a patent for a test device for thiols in urine, and co-authored the textbook, Principles of Environmental Toxicology (Taylor & Francis Ltd, London (1998)). His second book, Is it Safe to Eat? was published in December 2004 by Springer Verlag. TVNZ screened a series based on the book on TV ONE in August 2007 (repeated January 2009); Shaw is a key member of the presentation team. He has since edited Endocrine-disrupting Chemicals in Food (CRC Press, 2010) and written the student text, Food Safety - the Science of Keeping Food Safe (Blackwell-Wylie, due 2012).

Audi TT 19 Sept. 2005
By Marshall Dennen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
OK book nothing new, I was hoping to get some info on tuning the TT but it's very general. A good book if your shopping for your first TT, it talks about the different models.

Useful, informational 13 July 2008
By Ronizetti - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Nicely written book. Contains a wealth of knowledge and history on the Audi TT. US buyers beware however, this is a British book and photographs and details as described are the the british version of the TT. Yes, the US market always gets second thought products specially when dealing with cars (they don't think any of us have the savvy or taste level as Europeans) - - did you know the TT came in a Magicians Purple color!? Beautiful, but UK version. (NOT in the book). Otherwise, this contains solid, helpful information that would benefit any TT owner or those (like me) looking to purchase one. Photographs are not as detail oriented as one would expect, this is no replacement for the car brochure. More like a picture book or album with notes.
