Isaacson is good at teasing out the personalities of people but a little out of his depths when it comes to the technical bits. Quite readable though and some of the innovators who spoke of and the context in which they fit was interesting.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing product poor instructions, 28 Oct 2013

Too many bits not clearly identified and a couple of brackets missing, easy to assemble it wrongly, with potentially disastrous results

This review is from: Men Cry Alone (Kindle Edition)
Well written but not my bag. Highlights a problem we have in society, but only meaningful if you are affected.

5.0 out of 5 stars A go to book, 2 April 2013

This review is from: The Future (Kindle Edition)
Easily one of the most well thought out books on our current economic and environmental situation. A must read but a little wanting on solutions for the problems laid out.

5.0 out of 5 stars A massive tome, 2 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It does what it sets out to do in spades. How often it gets open will be debatable, but when it is put to task the descriptions are excellent.

3.0 out of 5 stars Readable but dull, 2 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not well structurered, his early observations are certainly open for debate, but the second half develops ideas that are quite disturbing.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor rendition of muddled ideas, 14 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The writer uses tired metaphors to reinforce points of views gained by better and wiser scholars than he. Almost agonising labour to just to reach half way. The only good aspect of the book is its title.

5.0 out of 5 stars End of a ho-hum era, 27 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Primal Light (Audio CD)
This record is a real laugh, full of cultural put downs across a very broad spectrum of tastes while at the same time bringing out qualities in a number of tunes that have by now become almost ho-hum because of over exposure. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully crafted, 27 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sholti has been a favourite of mine since the 1970s and this record explains why. Beautifully crafted, the third movement is perhaps just a little on the soft side, yet the movement shows Mahler's skill at bringing together a delightful mix of cultures.
