5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent prequel - fast paced, good gripping prose, 11 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wasn't expecting this to be of the same quality as the Homeland TV series, but it was a clever story, and hard to put down. I did enjoy the book and believe that if you liked the TV series, this would be entertaining. It's true that the plot here is less devious and serpentine, but it is satisfying and the loose ends are taken care of neatly.
On this basis I would investigate Andrew Kaplan's other work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beware of the associated pictures, 29 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this item, which was just as shown in the main figure. It works great, well manufactured, etc.
Note that it is only 15cm long and so you may need something longer (i.e. not like the Figure showing a blue molex product which appears to be much longer).

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent insight into the great opportunities for bee research and the good times of a life science academic, 24 Jun. 2013

This review is from: A Sting in the Tale (Hardcover)
Dave outlines his enthusiasm for the natural world in an engaging and lively manner, that will strike a chord among those who have a similar passion for natural history and should catch the interest of those who would like to know more about the world around us.
The chapters are nicely arranged to cover different aspects of bumblebees and each is an engaging read in it own right. You will find out a lot of about biological processes and systems in a very palatable manner, and if you wish to delve more deeply into the science, then he has written more academic works on Bumblebees. You are also able to gain some insight into the most enjoyable aspects of academic profession, as Dave's enquiring mind and focused ambitions have enabled him to gain the finance to travel the world and expose some fascinating new insights in conservation in general and bumblebees in particular. Who would ever have guessed that Bumblebees would make 'weeds' more damaging in Tasmania, or that Honey bees have the potential to reduce biodiversity ? Lots of fascinating insights, highly recommended !

5.0 out of 5 stars Explains WHY the natural world is MORE than just an interesting place, 1 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book should be essential reading for all students of biology and pehaps it is even more important for people who really don't care much for anything but other themselves or other human beings ......
It shows how we, as a devastatingly powerful force in the world, have done many things that we feel improve our civilisation without realising the full 'costs' associated with benefits that we enjoy - it must be time for all humans to realise that 'ignorance is not bliss' and make sure that the future we will offer succeeding generations is not blighted by our blinkered approach to economic development.
Surely there can be few things more alarming than the photograph of Chinese people perched in trees doing the 'work' of bumblebees, so that the trees will produce fruit ?
Its well written, covers a wide range of issues that are nicely developed using easily appreciated metaphors and with a stunning array of examples - absolutely fascinating !!
