Burges Salmon Guide to Nuclear Law
Burges Salmon Guide to Nuclear Law
by Ian Salter
Edition: Hardcover

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Review of How Nuclear Law Operates in the UK, 3 Sept. 2013
This is a really excellent book dealing with the fundamentals of nuclear law as applied in a UK context. Each chapter is written by a specialist nuclear law professional from the leading law firm Burges Salmon and the whole book is masterfully edited by nuclear law expert Ian Salter. First published in 2010 the book remains highly relevant today in 2013, not least because of the excellent chapters dealing with the complexities of nuclear contracting. Recommended reading for legal, regulatory and financial professionals engaged in the UK nuclear market.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Replacement Laces for My Timberland Boots, 31 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great replacement laces for my Timberland Boots. I bought the 130cm length but maybe would recommend the 150cm to give you an extra 10cm pull length on each side of the boot. Recommended.


Design and Construction of Nuclear Power Plants (Beton-Kalender Series)
Design and Construction of Nuclear Power Plants (Beton-Kalender Series)
by Rüdiger Meiswinkel
Edition: Paperback
Price: £37.50

4.0 out of 5 stars Nuclear 1.01, 15 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an almost unique book that explains - from a practical on-site construction perspective - how modern nuclear power plants are actually designed and built. The book would make a good "Nuclear Construction 1.01" primer for consultants, policy makers and others involved in european new nuclear build. Well written and easy to read. I found myself underlining useful sections of text with my highlighter pen almost straight away. Excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Business Read, 25 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
"Rebuilding the Brand" gives a fascinating insight into the corporate turnaround of Harley-Davidson. The book is fairly short at 112 pages but here simplicity is strength. Written for Corporate Executives it would be ideal for a complete read on a long business flight or when staying a few nights away at a business hotel. Every page is gem and the core strategic ideas can quickly be applied to your own marketing work. Harley Davidson sets the context for the book but the sales lessons apply much more generally to the wider business world. Recommended for corporate strategists, corporate sales and marketing execs, and - definitely - anybody thinking about running any kind of luxury product dealership. Well done.

4.0 out of 5 stars Triumph Over Adversity, 4 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Part travelogue, part memoir, NICCMAB is a motorcycle diary of middle-aged British Bloke David Royle's trip across America along Route 66. Nearly 50, he learns biking from scratch, buys a Triumph America and then rides across the USA on a Harley Road King (after somebody crashed the Fat Boy he originally wanted to hire). Royle is irrepressibly upbeat finding joy in life both large and small. But there are moments of genuine poignancy too, dealing with the loss of his father, divorce and separation from his kids. A nice read and proof that you're never too old.

5.0 out of 5 stars Uneasy Rider - But Very Funny, 25 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Are you British? No motorcycle experience? Ever wanted to quit the executive rat race and ride a Harley Davidson across America before you're too old? Yeah me too. But this guy actually did it and lived to tell the tale. Hilariously funny account of the journey and required reading for armchair bikers like me. Enjoy. (Hmmm maybe I'm not too old after all.....)

5.0 out of 5 stars Must-Have for UK Nuclear Regulation Professionals, 12 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A tour de force primer on nuclear law as applied in the UK. Not cheap but pretty much the best book on UK nuclear regulation of its kind. Recommended background reading if you want to understand how nuclear law has evolved and the rules of the regulation game as played in the UK. Ian J.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good straight-talking analysis by a Grid Engineer, 25 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After chairing an expert group looking at UK nuclear power station siting in 2006, I became convinced that grid availability and connectivity was probably the key technical viability issue above nearly all other siting factors. This excellent book by Grid Engineer Derek Birkett explains in plain language why the future of Britain's electricity grid is at a perilous crossroads and the problems we must all soon face. Reads like a Briefing for Ministers, with a good balance between technical discussion and pragmatic advice. Recommended reading for political analysts, energy policy analysts and energy economists.

International Perspectives on Energy Policy and the Role of Nuclear Power

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Country-By-Country Analysis of Nuclear Prospects, 18 Nov. 2009
This important analysis of nuclear power published in April 2009 contains an impressive 32 chapters, each written by a country specific expert contributor. The book is well researched, to a high technical and academic standard, yet is very readable. Highly recommended.
