5.0 out of 5 stars Stellar - dwarfs other children's planetary books!, 2 Nov. 2013
An excellent way to describe Pluto's unique place in the pecking order of our solar system, the author and illustrator tell a historic tale with the right balance of fact and fun that would be appealing to all children regardless of age - in fact adults should enjoy this descriptive and thoroughly enjoyable tale. Dare I even say Pluto's plight here is heart warming? It would make a wonderful cartoon.
I've bought three copies for friends and family, as I remember receiving a similar book as a child which helped inspire me into the study of astronomy and science generally. Super book - I will definitely recommend to others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outreach at its Best, 23 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What can I say - this is scientific outreach at its best, in the best arena of science - physics.

Paul Halpern's book not only explores beyond the horizon of observation, but makes the subject of cosmology within everyone's reach. He does this in a fun, non-condescending way, which unlike many science writers makes the reader feel included in the journey the book takes.

On this Universal voyage, we encounter Dark matter and Dark energy; imagine what could be behind these significantly influential, yet largely unknown phenomena, before navigating our way through higher dimensions and across the Multiverse.

In addition to all the accurately, concise information, we find ourselves learning about the cosmos in a fun way, with everyday references and analogies. The book oozes the author's enthusiasm for the subject. I hope and expect this book will make a strong impact and whet the appetite for Cosmology to many more amateurs (like me) and pure novices alike, and judging from advance praise from the books previewers, Paul's professional peers also think the book is wonderful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Coupling Series 2 on DVD, 10 Nov. 2003
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pure Hilarity! This DVD is truely a piece of art. The first episode is brilliant with Jeff typically backing himself into a corner with the opposite sex, ends up talking his way out of having two legs. The rest of this 9 episode series on two DVDs lives up to this great start also. Basically, you won't be able to stop laughing. Worth ever penny!
