5.0 out of 5 stars The best book about the behaviour of constructions and (most important) ..., 19 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)

5.0 out of 5 stars The most important: it is Portable!, 15 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well organized entire the heaven in each page, in good printing quality, clear informations for all objects printed in colors and a "telrad" circle in cover page.
Not like Atlas 2000, but the most important in this case, it is the low price and above all the pocket size.

5.0 out of 5 stars The ultimate book for amateur astronomer, 15 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is the most complete book on observational astronomy.
The objects are carefully chosen and organized in constellations.
In each constellation can be found classified in tables, the types of objects that can be seen, galaxies, open clusters, planetary nebulae, double stars, etc. Then the further identifies the objects as Messier, Binocular Messier, Urban Observing, Deep sky binocular, RASC finest NGC objects and more dim objects.
All those followed by a detailed description of each item, so the observer will not be lost on chaos of heaven and easier to understand popsicles out.
The whole text is accompanied by star-hopping maps and excellent photographs.
Ιnformation on the astronomical equipment is also important and complete, but in any case can been found in other books or on the Internet.


Ancient Egyptian Construction and Architecture: 13 (Dover Books on Architecture)
Ancient Egyptian Construction and Architecture: 13 (Dover Books on Architecture)
by Somers Clarke
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars All about Egyptian architecture, 19 Jan. 2010
A diachronic work of R. Engelbach and S. Clarke from the very early of the twentieth century, about not exactly the ancient Egyptian architecture but for the construction methods, given in wholeness.

All about the building materials (especially stone) and methods of treatments at quarry, the transportation and the placement on the buildings.
A reference book about the study of constructions methods for Egyptologists, architects and archaeologists.

5.0 out of 5 stars The construction as ART, 19 Jan. 2010
Excellent and clear vision of the civil engineering science from the famous professor and author Mario Salvatori, the man who teach that the statics are not only a calculating science but is also an art.
A very short but wide presentation of statics in a clever gradual approach from the very basic elements of nature and the materials properties, to the complex human constructions of the present.
Very easy, and comprehensive, but not innocent writing.
A reading for everybody, not just for "beginning Engineers and Architects".
