5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book about a fascinating new language, 25 Jan 2011
Andrei is both an brilliant writer and a very clever guy. This book gives an excellent overview of the D programming language, diving into more detail with clear, repeatable examples where necessary. One of the most enjoyable technical books that I've read in a very long time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quick steps into a great language, 5 Nov 2008
This is a great opener to a brilliant language. The first part of the book gives a brisk walk through the core language syntax and features, then the second part takes you through the Tango library. Both the language and the Tango library look incredibly well thought out and executed; and this book shows you all the best bits in an easy to read, concise manner. One word of warning, although this book is not inaccessible to a programmer, it does require a certain level of understanding of basic programming concepts.

Programming Collective Intelligence: Building Smart Web 2.0 Applications

5.0 out of 5 stars Keeps coming back, again and again, 5 Nov 2008
This is an excellent book that I keep coming back to again and again. It explains a variety of complex machine learning algorithms with easy to follow, clear, concise code. The only bad word I've heard about this book is that occasionally it would be useful to see the algorithms as equations as well as code, I didn't find that a problem at all though.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book to find out what is really happening in your kitchen, 14 Nov 2007
This review is from: The Science of Cooking (Hardcover)
Peter has an obvious analytical passion in this book. He answers a lot of the questions I had about why certain things happen as they do when I'm cooking. A really interesting and good fun read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Foodie's Handbook to Discovering London, 13 July 2007
This book is a real find, it lists all the best places in London for food. Not just restaurants but markets, shops and cafes as well. The only downside is that now my list of places I want to go to is getting unmanageable.
