5.0 out of 5 stars The enthralling life of a great man of science, 4 Oct 2010
This review is from: Darwin (Paperback)
Charles Darwin's life was fascinating. It is brilliantly described in this book by Adrian Desmond and James Moore - essential reading for anyone with an interest in Darwin. It makes gripping reading, too, for any reader who wants to learn about Darwin.

5.0 out of 5 stars an outstanding cookery book, 3 Sep 2010
Cookery books appear in a more or less continuous deluge. Few are much good. Here, by a top professional chef is an exceptionally valuable book on one of the most difficult branches of cooking - making pastry. Michel Roux tells you how to do it and describes dozens of wonderful dishes based on pastry. All keeen cooks should have this book.

I Drink Therefore I am: A Philosopher's Guide to Wine
I Drink Therefore I am: A Philosopher's Guide to Wine
by Roger Scruton

3.0 out of 5 stars The pleasures of wine, 12 July 2010
Roger Scruton's book 'I drink therefore I am, a philosopher's guide to wine' is one of the most unusual, and gripping, books on wine ever written. Apart from being devoted to Wine Roger Scruton is also a Philosophy Don. Philosophy, sometimes amusingly, creeps in among the Bottles. He regards wine as a most admirable accompaniment to food but he thinks it is even better with philosophy. Anyone who loves wine will find this book both delightful and enriching. It may also cause philosophers to turn to drink.
