Warped Passages: Unravelling the Universe's Hidden Dimensions (Penguin Press Science)
Warped Passages: Unravelling the Universe's Hidden Dimensions (Penguin Press Science)
by Lisa Randall
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellence., 18 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Easily the best current book for those wanting an authoritative current account of extra dimensions, branes, and the juxtaposition of perspectives and progress in attempting to advance past the Standard Model. Prof. Lisa Randall answered many questions for me in an entertaining read, that hadn't fully been cleared up by similar publications. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterly Bruckner, 22 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Indispensible Bruckner by the master Celi. Awe inspiring, slow, but simply has to be heard. Great sound too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Glass, 22 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you like Glass then this 2 disk set of the complete 20 Etudes could not be performed better by the wonderful pianist Maki Namekawa. Excellent purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars but the readings are wonderful. Top rate Bax, 22 Dec. 2014

Slightly reverberant sound, but the readings are wonderful. Top rate Bax, a composer that should really rate much much higher.

5.0 out of 5 stars Without any shadow of a doubt, the one Sibelius ..., 22 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Without any shadow of a doubt, the one Sibelius set to own. The Bournemouth orchestra play superbly in warm sound, but the interpretations are peerless. Desert island pick.


Ball Four: The Final Pitch
Ball Four: The Final Pitch
by Jim Bouton
Edition: Paperback
Price: £16.58

5.0 out of 5 stars Baseball Treat, 29 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of the best baseball books I have read. A real page turner, depicting the lives, mostly on the field and in the locker room, of many of the Major League baseball stars during the short time Jim Bouton took daily notes. But more importantly the book describes the human, oh so very human, side of these players. Their insecurities, their jokes, their pranks and their exploits, strip away their flash uniforms to reveal what is really inside them. Hugely enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars New York, New York, 18 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A cannot put down book, interweaving the mayoral politics, the baseball (Yankees), and the riots of 1977, in a city one cannot help but admire. Superbly and colourfully written the book is a snapshot of an tumultuous year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Haydn, 18 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Vibrant performances, particularly of the Sturm und Drang symphonies. Tafelmusik sound full-bodied for a smallish original instruments band, and the recording is excellent. Cannot go past these recordings, and although Weil is brisk-ish he certainly allows the music to take shape. Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Redneck Rubbish, 7 Jan. 2014
I give it 3 stars on the basis that it is written in English, where one word follows others to form sentences, which then congeal to form paragraphs.

I'll never pay for the wisdom contained within. No vision, no compassion, but full of the acceptance of good fortune and basic common sense. Hardly worth the effort to publish such trite rubbish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Bruckner, 9 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An absolutely superb Bruckner 9th. For this alone well worth the price of admission. The Chicago brass are on their usual peerless form, and Giulini coaxes a breathtaking final movement out of them. Recording quality is A1. For the price asked this set seems to be a no-brainer. Buy it before it disappears.
