Thermodynamic and Transport Properties of Fluids: S. I. Units
Thermodynamic and Transport Properties of Fluids: S. I. Units
by G. F. C. Rogers
Edition: Paperback
Price: 7.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't really deserve to be called a book or priced as such, 12 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This "book" was compulsory for my Engineering course. I gave it three stars because it does the job it sets out to and is a good set of steam tables. However, keep in mind that it's only a 20-page booklet of tables and really not befitting of the 7.99 RRP attached to it.


Introduction to Chemical Process: Fundamentals and Design
Introduction to Chemical Process: Fundamentals and Design
by Kenneth Solen
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read for any prospective Chemical Engineers, 12 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read this book when I was in high school, and selecting which subject I wanted to study at university. I am now in my second year of a Chemical Engineering course and enjoying it. I think this book is great for finding out what a ChemEng degree is about, it gives you the chance to have a first look at the topics covered in a ChemEng degree: fluid mechanics, heat transfer, process control, reaction engineering et al. Definitely the best resource if you're unsure if ChemEng is for you or not.

5.0 out of 5 stars A challenging but approachable look into higher studies of Chemistry, 12 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read this book when I was in my final year of high school. For anyone looking to study Chemistry or something related in further education this book is great for giving you an insight into more complex Chemistry. It's laid out in an interesting way and is more enjoyable to read from than a typical Chemistry textbook.

Ken Hom 14" Nonstick easy care hot Wok
Price: 16.00

3.0 out of 5 stars Hardly deserves to be called a "non-stick" wok, but good otherwise, 12 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Found very little difference between this so-called "non-stick" wok and ordinary cookware, it's a good wok for a decent price but don't buy it if you're looking specifically for non-stick properties.

4.0 out of 5 stars Offers an interesting and very unusual perspective, but could be better laid out, 12 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book centres around the idea of pessimism, the idea that the future of our own lives and humanity is not so bright, and tries to explain the reasons we feel compelled to resist this idea. The central concepts of the book are extremely fascinating and provoking but the narrative could be better-structured, I found the book to be a jumble of thoughts in places.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly thought-provoking and well laid out analysis, 12 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The author tries to tackle the subjects of procreation and continuing human existence in a very calculated and logical manner, and the analysis he carries out is masterful and compelling. Even if you end up still disagreeing with the conclusions (hardly surprising as it's so against human nature and societal values), the book should provide a thought-provoking and well laid out viewpoint you might otherwise have never considered.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible, immersive game, 5 Oct 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
I'd recommend you do not buy this without buying and completing Mass Effect 1, you'll be missing out.

The Mass Effect trilogy is an incredible piece of work. Well-developed characters, varied gameplay and a kick-ass storyline make them some of the best games of the decade.
