5.0 out of 5 stars Really good ..., 17 Jan 2013
OK it's American and it refers to plants common there but the first half of the book is about paper making fundamentals which enable you to adapt any of the recipes described to the plants you have available.
A book that makes you want to start right away.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but, 17 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A nice case but it has only survived about two months. The two parts to the shell didn't feel entirely secure to start with and over time they loosened further - to the point where it wasn't worth using as a protective cover.

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent book - but kindle version has bugs, 16 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very good book - with latest Xcode 4.2 features included (storyboards, etc) and the kindle version is good ... however, the code snippets (quite an essential part) haven't translated well from the print version to the kindle.
Specifically, there are sections of code that are highlighted in the print version that need to be removed from your own code as the authors show how an app develops ... they are highlighted by strike-through text. This appears as normal text on the kindle. So you have to figure out yourself which bits to remove and which to add.
I would give three stars for the kindle version - and five for the print.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cracking book, 25 Jun 2008

Although this isn't a manual for the arduino (or related microprocessors) this book will really help if you are doing anything with them. The theory is well presented, well explained Computer Science ... a very good book.
