5.0 out of 5 stars great for beginners or experienced coders, 18 Jan 2011
a great programmer's guide to html5, packed with lots of code examples, puzzles and detailed explanations of what everything does, very comprehensive.

it's also quite well laid out with a good chunk of sections explaining the intricacies of canvas, animations concepts and collision detection. you'll also find a wealth of quite useful code samples to take away for your next project.

great resource and a worthwhile addition to your html5 collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars good advice, 25 Jun 2008
picked this up from Borders today, and have to admit it's a cracking good read. fast paced and lively like Sniper One by Sgt Dan Mills, it brings you into the action and poses some good solutions to really hairy situations.

don't leave for basra without it ;-)

1.0 out of 5 stars slips out of my ear every time, 6 Dec 2007
bought these beauty's because the sound reviews and everything said they're excellent.

and up until i stuck them in my earlobes i agreed, impressive range.

then they popped out 2-3 minutes later, damn annoying, tried every other earplug they give and still they pop out.

back to using my ipod earphones, until i get a replacement for my broken etymotic research earplugs (those were much better and never slipped out)

4.0 out of 5 stars A good book from a great author!, 14 Jan 2001
This review is from: Prime Witness (Paperback)
More legally inclined than critical mass and a bit slow to get going, but enjoyable reading if you're into complex and well dramatised thrillers. The plots unlike other authors are taken from a real-life point-of-view, rather than involving fancy gadgets and high-tech bond stuff; by doing this the stories themselves become more enjoyable and enlightening giving you a unique insight into the mind of the hunter and killer. Good reading for lawyers.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Compelling and well crafted A-List Thriller, 3 Jan 2001
This review is from: Critical Mass (Paperback)
With a storyline shadowed by the fear of nuclear terrorism and a complex plot which grips you with every page this definitiely ranks as one of the best thrillers I've read for a long time. Being a fan of Clive Cussler's works for some time now I was reluctant to pick this one up thinking it would be another one of those legal dramas found so often in the cinema and television these days, but once I started reading it I couldn't put it down. The tension and fast moving plot-line make this a complex and action-packed tale and a very enjoyable read, scenes are visualised well with good descriptions of what is going on without slowing the story down. Definitely an author I'll look out for and one hell of a story, buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars good book for kids into gundam, 26 Dec 2000
This review is from: Gundam Blue Destiny (Paperback)
although the artwork is not up to the standard set by the sunrise comics mobile suit gundam 0083 'stardust memory' series, this is a good comic book for young kids interested in gundam. the action is fast paced and includes a decent storyline to boot. printed in black & white this makes the wording clear and easy to read, turning it into an excellent comic book for kids and an perfect one for those last-minute birthday ideas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and a stunning read, 13 Dec 2000
If you want to know more about the subject then this is a great little book to own, insightful, nicely written and with good sketches to visualise the beings. Excellent present to give to someone into 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' or the 'Angel' series, and who wants to know more about these creatures.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wolverine kicks..., 13 Dec 2000
This review is from: X-Men [DVD] [2000] (DVD)
Ok, I admit the star of the movie is and always will be Wolverine; Hugh Jackman was born for the part. When it gets released over here you just have to get it, if only to see the bar sequence again and again and again and again and...

5.0 out of 5 stars One of his best!, 13 Dec 2000
This review is from: The Fog [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Ok the storyline is a bit old and the monsters look a bit ropey to the end, but definitely an overlooked classic. From the beginning you're gripped by the grim story of a shipwreck and bad happenings at sea; then you hear the town go mad and the guy at the door trying to get in. A much overlooked classic which never seems to dull with age, definitely one worthy to be put alongside 'Assault on Precinct 13'.
