3.0 out of 5 stars It's OK, 23 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased the "Borner V1® Slicer Storage Box (opaque)" for a "Borner V1® Slicer" that I purchased at the same time. They arrived together in a large cardboard box. I was only charged once for postage & packing.

There are two spaces to hold the slicer inserts, although the 10 mm insert does not fit easily. I will store the 10 mm insert within the slicer and the other two inserts within the spaces provided. The vegetable safety holder can be held in place at the front of the box.

The box is stable when stood. It is possible to hang it from a nail/screw/hook, but it would need to be removed in order to access the inserts within the provided spaces.

The storage box is not opaque. It is translucent, as can be seen in the photograph. The slicer is opaque, but they look OK together. Once paired with the slicer it looks very much like the photograph for the "Authentic V3® Slicer Storage Box".

It's nothing special but it is OK. It is cheap enough and is the only storage box available for the "Borner V1® Slicer". On that basis I recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very useful book for those wanting to understand type theory, 16 Aug. 2011
I have owned a copy of this book and its companion, Advanced Topics in Types and Programming Languages, for about four or five years.

This book, Types and Programming Languages, starts by explaining the untyped lambda calculus and builds up from there. I believe that anyone with an interest and a degree level education would find the subject matter easy to follow.

This book has been really useful in helping me to learn type theory. While internet sources (e.g., Wikipedia) can provide a flavour of the topic, a well structured book makes the topic much easier to understand. Having read & understood this book I can now understand the more advanced topics that can be found on specialist websites.
