4.0 out of 5 stars Supernovae remnants, 26 Nov 2013

The book is a collection of papers on supernovae. Reasonably useful to students of the subject, but a bit old. You have to bear in mind it's age when referring to it.


Secrets and Lies
Secrets and Lies
by Christine Keeler
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 17.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Secrets and lies, 11 Sep 2013

This review is from: Secrets and Lies (Hardcover)
This is an update of her previous book from ten years ago. The narrative as well as dealing with the Profumo arrair also suggests that Stephen wars was involved in the blunt burgess Maclean spy ring. Keeler suggests this as a result of maturing views over the years. It really needs an expert in the spy scandals of the 1960's to comment further.

I used a version at work for picture editing in technical documents, and I wanted to continue using it after I retired. Similar to Photoshop.

I used a previous version at work. Upon retirement I still wanted the facilities it offered. Mainly that of researching routes to places I wanted to visit, and then printing them out. I find this easier than carrying a large map book. Also used in conjunction with a Sat Nav.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ring of Fire, about June Carter Cash, 23 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The video is based on the book Anchored in Love, by John Carter Cash. The DVD itself comes from the States, and as such is region 1. However, in the UK it played correctly on three separate pieces of up to date digital equipment that was less than 3 years old. I do not know the technical reasons for this. The film deals with June Carter Cash's life from early childhood. It covers the Carter family singing at the high power Texas radio station, June starting out on her own, her marriage to Carl Smith, and finally her marriage and life with Johnny Cash. Some of the early scenes compare well with those actual scenes that are available on U tube. The film depicts June's struggle with Johnny's amphetamine addiction. Be careful about comparing it with the film Walk the Line. A must for those interested in the life of the Carter and Cash families.

Anchored in Love.
This book is for followers of the life of Johnny Cash,the carter family and their music. It is written by Johnny and June's son John Carter Cash. It tells of the high spots and also of the low spots in their lives. The low spots were mainly caused by Cash's continued addiction to amphetamines, and how June coped with it. An interesting read for those that enjoy Johnny Cash's music.
