Steel Boat, Iron Hearts: A U-Boat Crewman's Life Aboard U-505
Steel Boat, Iron Hearts: A U-Boat Crewman's Life Aboard U-505
by Hans Goebeler
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars but it is the honesty that makes this book such a fantastic read., 21 July 2015
A very very honest and down to earth version of how real life in the U boat world was. The authors honesty may make you squirm, but it is the honesty that makes this book such a fantastic read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like me, if this is the first book you ..., 24 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At first you may get shocked at the size of the book .... it is very thin. However, once you start reading it, you will realise that every page is worth all the money. Like me, if this is the first book you will be reading, I strongly recommend it. The language is simple and jargon free. The author then suggests further resources.


The Epigenetics Revolution: How Modern Biology is Rewriting Our Understanding of Genetics, Disease and Inheritance
The Epigenetics Revolution: How Modern Biology is Rewriting Our Understanding of Genetics, Disease and Inheritance
by Nessa Carey
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting subject presented well with a sprinkling of good humour, 4 Feb. 2014
This is a topic that has opened my eyes to the world of epigenetics. She has done a good job of making complex aspects appear simple and also has a good sense of humour. Some pages I found too complex to understand, but that is probably because i am not clever enough. I hope she writes more books on genetics to open up the subject even more.

5.0 out of 5 stars truly excellent book for beginners, 1 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have blindly being running a website for about ten years, but with no real knowledge of any html or css. (i.e. i used to simply upload files using dreamweaver). This book explains things beutifully clearly. It is not too dumbed down, nor does it assume you are a guru. i highly recomend it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Overly complicated, 3 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I tried very hard to read this book, but am only one third the way, and have decided to bin it. It does not make things easy to understand. They use an analogy of clocks which drives you nuts after a while. This book will not make anything clear to you.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I run the website [...] for anaesthesia trainees and often need to verify facts. This book is excellent to CORRECTLY understand the physical principles behind the apparatus used. I cannot comment on how useful it is for exams, and perhaps exam going candidates will hopefully write some reviews.

So if you are keen to get your understanding of physics right, this is an excellent book.

3.0 out of 5 stars temperature reading too high, 20 Oct. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When plugged in, due to its own heat, the temperature displayed is higher than the real temperature. You need to take this into account when using this device.

5.0 out of 5 stars Correct level of depth, 9 Oct. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Flying the Airbus A380 (Paperback)
This book is pitched just right. It is not too basic, at the same time , it isn't laden with unnecessarily detailed description of aircraft systems. You feel that you are flying the Airbus. It is plenty of photographs of real instrument screen shots.
I recomend this book highly.

4.0 out of 5 stars I have bought the 160G version of this., 20 Jan. 2007
I have bought the 160G version of this. The set up took me less than 1o minutes to do.

Very quiet , though, like any computer, you will hear the hard disk at work.

So far very reliable. One big issue is that the instruction manual is extremely useless. What a pity that they didn;t spend much effort getting that right. if you are reasonably techincally savvy, then you will figure everything out. otherwise i wouldn't buy one, becuase the manual will only confuse you.
