5.0 out of 5 stars Great argument ammo, 6 April 2015
Rare feat of witty, thought provoking and enlightening writing about politics that goes beyond tribal "preaching to the converted" to be genuinely inspiring. Great argument ammo. Too late to have Zoe as prime minister?

2.0 out of 5 stars Overrated sub-Asimov dated sci fi schmalz, 17 Jun. 2013
This review is from: The Humans (Hardcover)
I cannot understand the popularity of this book; perhaps it is a lite taste of sci-fi for people who don't read that genre. It's a clumsy sub-Asimov short story padded out with dull mawkish platitudes about how wonderful us flawed humans are. Mostly a total waste of time: "she was wearing the blue trousers humans call jeans" is a typical example of the pointlessness. There are a couple of short set pieces that show the author can write but mostly I found it painfully tedious.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most interesting original book about genetics this century, 17 Jun. 2012
Exploring how genes can be switched off or otherwise altered by stuff that happens to us, sometimes in ways that can be passed on to our kids is fascinating enough but having the real cases and ideas pinned down and brought to life with studies of real identical twins makes this amazing!

1.0 out of 5 stars Useless, possibly dangerous rip off, 3 Mar. 2010
I plugged this into the wall and connected a small electric air pump that works fine in the car. After a moment of anaemic pumping I heard a bleak 'phutt' and that was the end of this plug's brief and miserable life.

This poor plug never had a chance. Released into the cruel world with only an eggshell thin casing for protection, its tiny circuitboard, lovingly soldered by colobus monkeys rejected from a Shakespeare writing workshop, barely had a moment to illuminate its shabby little LED before it was snuffed out forever.

Perhaps there is something endearing about Christmas cracker engineers trying to better themselves but I'd rather they stuck to flowers that squirt water and steered clear of mains voltage.

It is sheer transformer abuse to call something a 'UK Mains to 12v Car Charger Adapter Converter Plug' if it can't deliver enough current to power a pacemaker.
