This book does what it says on the tin! It is full of absolutely worthless information of variable accuracy.Do not expect too much!

A mildly amusing pair of stories in typical understated Bennet style.Light weight but worth a read for those with nothing better to do!

3.0 out of 5 stars Pseudo Sherlock, 13 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Mildly entertaining but does not convince as a genuine example of the genre. Plots tend to be rather weak with easily foreseen conclusions.

5.0 out of 5 stars No cause for amusement!, 4 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Mankell at his best. A well-constructed Wallander novel which keeps moving.The 'smiling man'character is very superficial and does not entirely convince but this does not detract from the excitement of the story.

This is a clearly written biography of Clerk Maxwell and requires no specialist knowledge to understand the significance of his contribution to physics.Recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars East European delights!, 24 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book describes a range of German, Polish and Russian recipes. Not surprisingly these cuisines tend to overlap with a fair number of stodgy dishes but some pleasant surprises. The book is well written and presentation is clear. Recommended!

3.0 out of 5 stars Eternal triangle, 17 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Bermuda Triangle (Paperback)
This is the 'classical' account of the phenomenon which generated the subsequent Bermuda triangle industry. Of interest to those wanting to know the early history. The field has since moved on.
