Trees (Pocket Reference Guides)
Trees (Pocket Reference Guides)
by Pamela Forey
Edition: Hardcover

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
4.0 out of 5 stars It really fits in a pocket, 6 Oct. 2003
This pocket guide is given in four sections: 1- Broad-leaved trees, 2- Palm and palm-like trees, 3- Conifers and 4- Look alikes and cultivars. Drawings are quite nice. Although there are nearly 200 trees (the European ones) described in the book, I still find the book a little insufficient. There are better ones but more expensive.


101 Essential Tips: Bonsai
101 Essential Tips: Bonsai

5.0 out of 5 stars Short, cheap and really good, 6 Oct. 2003
Full of beautiful pictures and they are tempting too. I felt like taking my shears start pruning the trees in the garden right away. After an introduction, design principles, bonsai styles are given with actual photographs. Useful tools, suitable species are also introduced and how to create a bonsai, caring and propagating are all taken into account. It is probably the best for the ones just looking for tips. Only 72 pages long and cheap...

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably the best of the 20th century, 5 Oct. 2003
This review is from: The Name of the Rose (Paperback)
It is probably the best book I have ever read. Although the size of Eco's books frighten me, I read his books in a few days. I like historical books and mystery books. This is both and the best. I have to talk about the movie as well. The movie is as good as the book and this is mostly because of Sean Connery. Lastly, if you have not read this book yet, you are a century behind.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very peculiar adventure, 4 Oct. 2003
This review is from: Flight 714 (Paperback)
One of the best adventures of Tintin and Co. There is mystery, science fiction, laughter and everything in this book. I enjoyed it very much. I am sure you will as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the best adventure, 4 Oct. 2003
Tintin is one of my best characters but he kills too many animals in this book. I prefer the adventures of Tintin with Captain Haddock. He is ever so funny! However it is another classic book for all ages.


From Alchemy to Chemistry (Dover Science Books)
From Alchemy to Chemistry (Dover Science Books)
by John Read
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Chronologically structured excellent book, 4 Oct. 2003
It is a 'History of Chemistry' book, if you consider alchemy as the father of chemistry. It is well and chronologically structured, easy to read book. It was written in 1957 under the title 'Through Alchemy to Chemistry', however, there is nothing changed today. The author starts with the production of fire by the early men and ends the book in early 20th century, because afterwards is 'another story'. He devoted a chapter to 'The Philosopher's Stone', and when you come to the middle of the book here comes 'The Parting of the Ways'! You can read the story of 'phlogiston' as well in the book. Famous alchemists like Paracelsus and Geber, and chemists like Lavoisier and Cavendish are surely present. Every one can read this book, you do not have to be a chemist or a historian. There are nice stories on the evolution of science.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic science fiction, 3 Oct. 2003
I love old science fiction novels. They are far from brutality. You can enjoy this book in peace. H. G. Wells is still one of the best science fiction authors I believe.


Electron Microscopy of Thin Crystals
Electron Microscopy of Thin Crystals
by Peter B. Hirsch
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars The Bible, 3 Oct. 2003
A masterpiece and a classic book. We used to call it "The Bible" when I was doing my D. Phil at the Oxford University. If you don't have this book you should not consider yourself as an electron microscopist. All the authors are number one experts on the subject. You can call them fathers of transmission electron microscopy (TEM) as well. You will find everything (well, almost) about TEM in this book; from "the basic design of the electron microscope" to "kinematical theory of electron diffraction", "inelastic scattering", "the geometry of electron diffraction patterns", etc. There are high quality explanatory figures, micrographs, tables and diffraction pattern maps in the book. It is full of data! I believe, it is the number one reference book on TEM. It was translated to many languages (to Chinese, too). I would give it to 10 stars, but there are only 5 stars in this ranking.

5.0 out of 5 stars A quick reference bookfor all students, 28 Sept. 2003
It is a quick reference book for all students. It is full of nice drawings are photographs. Starting from 'elements and compounds', 'atoms and molecules' are introduced, then the 'periodic table' is given. Acids, bases, salts, alkali metals, transition metals and some important elements like carbon, nitrogen, silicon and oxygen are investigated. Electrochemistry, chemical analysis and organic chemistry are also included in the book. Each subject is given in two facing pages, so it is easy to follow and have the information at one glance. There is only basic information in the book, however, as a lecturer, I have found some important data as well.
