5.0 out of 5 stars excellent and thought provoking book, 20 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well written, technical enough to be interesting but easy enough to follow for the non-expert. Fascinating, as the author says, to recognise people you know in the pages.

4.0 out of 5 stars useful starter guide, 20 Dec. 2013

A lot of common sense, but from one who's been there and done it it's worth listening to what he has to say.

5.0 out of 5 stars Evidence based medicine for the masses, 14 April 2013
This review is from: Bad Science (Kindle Edition)
Ever found yourself nodding away at tabloid medical scare stories? Ever found yourself shouting at the paper when you read them? Either way, you should read this book. Goldacre picks through the sometimes dreary world of evidence and statistics with aplomb, you'll gasp when you realise how the wool is pulled over the eyes of millions by pharmaceutical companies and alternative medicine alike. Awesome book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great item and service, 1 May 2012

I'm very pleased with this indeed. The quality of the protector is excellent, I suppose it's a matter of opinion but I quite like the matte. The feel is good and I dont personally feel it pixelated the screen awfully.

As a plus, when I asked for tips having made a hash of the original application Mediadevil sent another pack through, without even being asked! This was along with a huge pack of info about how not to cock it up, this deserves the plaudits, thanks MediaDevil,

5.0 out of 5 stars Great coffee gadget, 17 Dec. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wow! I've been an espresso fan for years, but lately busy work schedules have put me off the faff involved with my elderly but faithful machine, which was still making excellent coffees.

This was the replacement, and it's everything we wanted. The espresso is EXCELLENT, as good and probably better as anything I've ever had whether that's at a shop or home.

Pros: perfect espresso every time. Great selection of coffee. No mess. Not particularly expensive to run, nespresso pods are competitively priced. Lattes and cappucinos are great too, with NO need to mess around steaming milk, so so good.

Cons: Milk is not quite as hot as I'd like it and just a smidge inferior to hand frother milk. Pods not available in shops(but ordering is easy). Has made me drink lots of coffee due to it being so good!

In summary this is the ultimate mix of convenience, superb coffee and clever packaging. If you need easy latte and cappucino as well as excellent espresso, get this.

Knife Edge: Life as a Special Forces Surgeon

3.0 out of 5 stars Medicine Xtreme?, 17 Jun. 2003
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A different kind of special forces book, this is less about bombs and bullets and more about one man wanting to explore the world and himself. Villars charts his time in 21 SAS, all the way to being RMO of 22 and beyond. It is primarily an account of his struggle to break beyond what society expects of him and become a character more involved in the exciting aspects of life. No tales of gung-ho glory here, but reflections on failures, lessons learnt and good times had. This a great read for a medical student as it highlights that there is more to your profession than Monday morning ward rounds, a career as a GP and the life that everyone else expects you to have.
