5.0 out of 5 stars Dont hesitate to buy, 29 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Best decision I made
It has allowed me to introduce the idea of taking a photo to my grandaughter who is 3
She loves to take photos and now will pose and smile and look cute for me wish I'd bought it earlier
You just download the free app and it is up and running I am using and iPhone 5
She cant hurt it honest
The shutter is a little stiff but she can do it
We all have to have our photos taken now

5.0 out of 5 stars Master physicist, 9 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Its highly addictive - be warned finished any other book you have - cos once you pick this one up you will not want to stop reading it.
This guy was there when it all happened, worked with the greats, and still manages to explain to me (a complete mathematical moron) exactly what theories we have come up with about the way the universe works.
It is a book I will read again and again.


On the Shoulders of Giants: The Principle of Relativity
On the Shoulders of Giants: The Principle of Relativity
by Albert Einstein
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars WOW all the maths associated with it, 9 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am hopeless at maths but even I had to purchase this little book
Lots of equations - if you are able to understand them
Still I am humbled by the knowledge of people like Einstein and all who came after him
Dont buy it to read about the principle of relativity - it is the explanation of relativity with all it maths its pretty academic
But you gotta love it

5.0 out of 5 stars its OK, 18 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pleasantly surprised at its quality
Its not so cheap in terms of plastic
The fans are very low - so low in fact I have to listen to see if they are on (and they are)
would have liked a white lead to match the unit but the black one does the job
Overall a very stylish buy that cools me old MacBook Pro down when I am encoding video


The View From the Centre of the Universe: Discovering Our Extraordinary Place in the Cosmos
The View From the Centre of the Universe: Discovering Our Extraordinary Place in the Cosmos
by Joel Primack
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £15.43

5.0 out of 5 stars surprisingly a bible for cosmologists, 8 Jan 2014
I count myself an ardent cosmologist who only turned to the sciences recently and I am So pleased I bought this book.
Whilst taking me on a whistle-stop tour It explains simply many other aspects of the universe etc that are mentioned in books in passing. I have learned much more by reading this book than many other more popular ones.
I would say it is on a parr with Brian Greene (whom I have read over and over again) in terms of the pleasurable engagement I get from picking this book up.
I would love a paperback copy (reading in bed is a bit awkward with a hardback)
It is written in an innovative and exciting way which carries you along explaining everything. I have to look up stuff on wikipedia often
with other books that assume I know what a WIMP is and LCDM and other acronyms. However the explaining never gets in the way it informs in context and to me this is the best way to learn and remember.
You will not be disappointed.

I had bought many of these - they have not gone down on me like Lacies have
