How Not to be Wrong: The Hidden Maths of Everyday Life

5.0 out of 5 stars Splendid tour of the math stuff everyone should know to make sense of all the nonsense you hear, 2 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Written in easily accessible style, like a well-loved uncle who really gets the maths, explaining quite advanced concepts in terms hardly anyone could fail to grasp. No equations here, except maybe to show what an equation might look like. Rather, you'll find some back-of-napkin style hand drawn illustrations that go perfectly with the relaxed style of the text. News stories, ads, politicians, drugs companies, science articles, all shower us with a constant barrage of statistics. Want to understand the true meaning of all those numbers better than those who tout them? You might very well, after reading this book. Because, what it will give is more of a "feel" for how numbers should work, rather than the detailed mechanics of how to do the calculations yourself. And ultimately, in order not to be wrong, this can be far more important than the raw ability to do the sums.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect appurtenance for a polar party, 9 July 2014
Makes excellent shot glasses! They easily last the lifetime of the drink even if you sip it slowly. Easy to fill, and easy to extract the ice glasses when frozen, due to the soft material the mould is made of.

Only slight drawback to the soft mould is that it makes it difficult to set it down perfectly straight and even in the freezer drawer, so you'll always find that the resulting glasses come out with their bottoms at slightly different angles. Getting one that stands perfectly plumb on a table is rare. It's relatively easy to fix though, if you're OCD that way, just grab a hold of each glass with an insulating material, like an oven glove, and slide it over a hot surface until the bottom evens out at the angle you want it at.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy shot glass, 1 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are very solid pieces, thick glass bottom and sides, takes a lot of hammering. After a month of daily use, there's no visible markings or flaws on it yet. The measuring line is about 1mm thick, very clear, and goes right the way round the glass. I haven't measured the capacity to the line for accuracy, but it seems to be a dollop more than a single espresso shot, though well short of a double. The glass is also somewhat too tall for my consumer Gaggia machine - they fit under the spout but stand at an angle. But no problem removing them without spills when filled to the line, as the line is well short of the rim of the glass. Overall very happy with these - they look good, are very solid, clean easily, provide an easily readable measure, and are a bargain at the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Standard martini glass, 29 Aug. 2011
Yep, it's your bog standard, workhorse Martini glass. Easily holds 2 doubles, or at a stretch, 2 doubles and a single. Made of reaonably thick glass, with a sturdy stem and foot. Survives dishwashing with no discernable hazing after 10 washes. Not particularly finely made, but not particularly rough either, fairly standard quality on the whole. Well proportioned, except that a somewhat wider foot piece might have made it less prone to knocking over. Amazon's picture is somewhat stretched vertically. In reality the glass is slightly more squat. Also the liquid bottom in Amazon's image appears rounded, in reality, it has a flat bottom - so your cocktail olive or cherry might swim around at the bottom rather than lying tightly nestled in a hollow.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what you expect, 29 Aug. 2011
It's a standard, perfectly functional tankard. Takes 1 pint. Made of reasonably thick and strong glass. Not particularly beautiful or finely made. But neither is it particularly ugly or rough. Just dead average really in the beauty stakes. Survives dishwashing with no discernable hazing after about 10 washes. Should last through years of regular use.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as advertised, 29 Aug. 2011
Contrary to Amazon's description, the product is not supplied with a replacement nozzle or a nozzle extension. Nor is there any indication that the extension can be purchased separately. Due to lack of the extension nozzle I was unable to test the product in practice - so can't really comment on its performance otherwise. Without extension it can only be used on vertical surfaces.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good for the price, 23 Sept. 2009
Holds your 2 pin plugs more reliably than many larger, more expensive, adapters I also own. Also lasts longer, and fuses blow less regularly than with other models - perhaps because the internal connections are tighter and less prone to arcing? Overall, very pleased with the product. I've ordered my second batch already.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bigger and sturdier than the pictures might suggest, 23 Sept. 2009
Title says it all really. I thought they looked a bit flimsy on the pictures, but was pleasantly surprised when it arrived. Well made sturdy tool. Looks stylish, and should last a long time.
