Choosing Solar Electricity: A Guide to Photovoltaic Systems
Choosing Solar Electricity: A Guide to Photovoltaic Systems
by Brian Goss
Edition: Paperback
Price: £13.67

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book for background information on PV., 2 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good book for anyone interested in this type of technology. Provides information to all those interested in surveying, purchasing, supplying PV arrays of whatever size.
One slight problem I had was with delivery. The jiffy-bag it was delivered in turned out to be too flimsy for the weight of the book, resulting in some of the pages and the back cover being 'bent' upon striking the ground when put through our letterbox (not low level).
I also thought I had purchased it from Amazon direct but it transpired I had purchased it from 'Derek' of Bluebell Bookshop of Penrith.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant book on all matters Heat Pump, 2 Dec 2013

The actual content of the book is excellent, everything anyone interested in this technology could need. One problem I have is the fact that some clown in the despatch dept of the seller has stuck the despatch label to the back cover!

As with all of Trevor Yorks books, fantastic value for money and an aide-memoire for me 'in the field'. 10/10 rated.

Since becoming aware of the architectural books written by Trevor Yorke I have purchased the majority of his tomes to assist me in determining the age and features of various buildings. Fantastic value for money and recommended to a number of colleagues.

Was initially looking forward to receiving this book; however quickly became disappointed with the overall standard of the book - especially with regard to the photographs which were all of a substandard quality - many being too dark to even see the details stated in the attached script! Disappointed.

Interesting read, especially as it covers a decorative building technique not usually found in the region where I currently live. Would be interested in seeing examples in the 'live' environment.

Really enjoyed reading this book. Fascinating historical record of this 'man made' material. It has made me far more aware of the 'decoration' found on various properties following recent visits to London and Plymouth.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clay & Cob Buildings, 17 Oct 2013

Very good value for money. Informative, especially with regard to 'earth buildings' and techniques from other parts of the UK proving Devonian cob isn't the only example.


Corrugated Iron Buildings: Churches, Houses, Sheds and Huts (Shire Library)
Corrugated Iron Buildings: Churches, Houses, Sheds and Huts (Shire Library)
by Nick Thomson
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.60

3.0 out of 5 stars Corrugated Iron Buildings, 17 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Adequate basic information, but seemed to concentrate on places of worship - especially those 'north of the border'. Worth the price paid.
