4.0 out of 5 stars Rise of the Continents, 8 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rise of the Continents [DVD] (DVD)
This was not only educational but a very enjoyable series to watch. Iain Stewart's easy going style of presentation made the subject very interesting. And the documentary brings into perspective the great passage of time over which the continents have formed and are still doing so today. Definitely recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Numbers and their pattern!, 8 July 2014

This is a beautifully illustrated book which describes the quality of numbers. It is more of an introduction that the reader may use as the basis for further research and investigation. I did learn many new things and it has rekindled my interest in numbers and their pattern.

Firedancer (Masters of the Elements Book 1)
Price: 2.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Fantasy Tale!, 15 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book was a pleasure to read with its imaginative story set in a fascinating world where the clan elemental masters control fire, water, earth and air. This is the tale of Jetta, a Firedancer trained to fight the elemental fire through dance. Having been assigned to protect a remote community she finds that the dance forms, used since earliest times, no longer have any effect and must learn new lessons and make new allies where she least expects.

A great fantasy tale and I can't wait to read the other books in the series.


West African Contributions to Science and Technology (Reklaw Education Lecture Series)
West African Contributions to Science and Technology (Reklaw Education Lecture Series)
Price: 1.96

5.0 out of 5 stars The history of Science and Technology in West Africa, 1 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We are so used to associating West Africa with the transatlantic slave trade that it is easy to overlook the fact that during the medieval period the cities of Timbuktu and Djenne (in that region) were also centres of learning and scholarship.
In this short work, Robin Walker presents many contributions to science and engineering which have come out West Africa. These topics cover mathematics, astronomy, medicine, metallurgy, architecture and much more.
As always the author has documented his sources and provided plenty of references for further reading. Another excellent contribution to African history and definitely recommended reading.
