3.0 out of 5 stars Good quality, but no good for running!, 12 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these "in-ear" style headphones because I thought they'd be good for running, but unfortunately they just fall straight out! The sound quality is good, but don't buy them if you plan to exercise with them.

These Taschen books are really great, the print quality is fantastic for such a low price. Loads of great images, reproduced really nicely. Bargain!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for running, 12 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great design, they fit comfortably on my ears and stay there securely whilst running! Sound quality is pretty good, nothing amazing but just fine considering the price and what they're designed for. Would be cool to have an in-line remote for changing volume/tracks, but apart from that, great.

2.0 out of 5 stars A good read but littered with errors, 29 Dec 2009
I enjoyed reading this book immensely - it is well written and really gives a sense of excitement about the Apollo programme.

However, be wary of the many factual errors that run throughout the book. I'm no scientist, and so at first I noticed nothing wrong. However, it struck me as odd that Nelson describes the launch of Apollo 4 as the following:

"Two F-1 rockets abruptly quit during liftoff, at which point the stack pulled a U-turn and headed screaming back at the ground"

That concerned me because when I searched the web for factual accounts & videos of Apollo 4, the launch is described, and indeed even filmed, as a perfect flight. How could such a glaring falsity make it into a (supposedly) thorough account of a scientific era?? It seems that the book was rushed to capitalise on the 40th annivesary of Apollo 11. Digging a little deeper I found a scientific community in absolute outrage at the number of mistakes in this book!

If you're a non-scientist and a complete newcomer to Apollo, it is an enjoyable read, but do not take every word for fact, as there seems to be an enormous community of people complaining about the lack of detailed research that went into this account of Mankind's greatest achievement.
