Outliers: The Story of Success
Outliers: The Story of Success
by Malcolm Gladwell
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.49

3.0 out of 5 stars okay read, 16 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is an okay read, but the ‘great’ insights are based on a slightly more contextual reading of the various phenomena. Slightly repetitive.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good content!, 2 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cutting-Edge Cycling (Paperback)
I really like this book. Despite the fact that most information does not fully apply to me as I am not a racer of any category, I find the information provided in this book really interesting. The various procedures, techniques, measuring systems, etc. that are all part of the a professional bicycle trainer’s toolbox, are explained well and allow for a certain understanding of what to look out for when training yourself for a specific trip or event, or simply to understand what cyclist you are yourself. For a cyclist I feel that most sense this book would make while you are undergoing some of the tests that are explained in the book, but even if not – and you are simply interested in your body’s processes – it is an easy read and will teach you the one or the other detail you might not have been aware about.

Four stars ‘only’ because the design is absolutely horrific. I am amazed by how badly textbooks such as this one still look. The unconsidered and generic treatment of text and image surprises me every time, and I wonder whether an author or editor of such content can truly feel proud to have it published in such shape.

4.0 out of 5 stars works well!, 2 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I cannot give the Icy Dock an ‘I love it’ rating as I don’t have any long time experience with it yet. So far however it works really well. I transferred all my projects from DVD onto the hard drives inside the Icy Dock and feel really save with it. We are now acquiring another two hard drives to extend our archive. Switching them over is easy. Installation was easy. Using it is easy.

Tom Danielson's Core Advantage: Core Strength for Cycling's Winning Edge

4.0 out of 5 stars nice book, 2 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like the content of this book and one can see how the exercises can help an eager cyclist like myself. The only downside of any of these text books is the design. But since these publications are produced super cheap (and for some people cheap means badly designed) I shall not comment on it any more.

The exercises are good, but as someone coming away from cycling with a serious scoliosis I recommend to have an experienced physiotherapist around when first conducting the exercises. Everybody’s body is different and some movements might be counterproductive to your specific needs.

But as said originally, it offers a good amount of ideas and exercises from which to create nice workouts.

5.0 out of 5 stars does the job!, 2 Sept. 2013

I have no long term experiences with this item (and really this is what would count), but so far so good. It works neatly with the single cable and is indeed very small.

The book offers a collection of interviews which give you a glimpse of the different philosophies or simply view points of the protagonists. An enjoyable read I feel.

2.0 out of 5 stars problematic, 19 April 2013

I do not agree with the current practice of publishers turning out books showing single pieces of graphic design that supposedly represent whole eras of the discipline. It is very unhelpful for students.

3.0 out of 5 stars does what it says, 5 July 2011
I had the same model before and - like the last one - it does what it says. Instead of running out of batteries this one will do the job much longer. Don't drop it though!

5.0 out of 5 stars Concise, precise and very informative, 7 Dec. 2008
This review is from: Detail in Typography (Paperback)
This short, concise text about some essential guidelines in the field of typography is a great entry into the world of letters and words. It is written in a way that makes the subject easy to understand even for non-typographers, but nevertheless comprehensive enough to act as reference for experts as well. I enjoyed both, the German and the English version of this nicely designed object and also added it to the reading list for my students.
