Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very reasonably priced, albeit short, book on the life of a man we all owe a great deal. If it encourages people to find out more about this complex genius then it will have served its purpose exceedingly well. Alan Turing is a true hero whose treatment after the war he contributed so much towards winning, beggars belief. Read this book and find out a little bit more about the man whose test to establish computer 'consciousness' is still the yardstick we judge them by.

4.0 out of 5 stars The original book that made Lawrence famous., 22 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I liked this book even though it has been condemned in the past by other biographers of Lawrence as sensationalist and inaccurate. This it undoubtedly is , but even so there is something nice about the tone and content, and to think you are reading history in the making, quite literally! If you like Lawrence, as I do, then this book is essential to add to your collection. This is the book that really kickstarted the legend of 'Lawrence of Arabia'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Winged Victory by V.M. Yeates, 7 May 2014

This review is from: Winged Victory (Kindle Edition)
This is a suberb book written in a style not too common today. Self effacing yet detailed in its descriptions of heroism. There is much to learn about the war machines used in 1914 to 1918, and the attitudes of the pilots and soldiers and civilians engaged in the front line has the ring of desperate truth about it. I couldn't put it down and would recommend this as a real change from most of the so-called war books especially some of the modern day ones. You really feel you are up there with the pilots in their Sopwith Camels high in the clouds,for ever searching for combat.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Motorcycle despatch rider., 18 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good read for the insight it gives you on the first war in the front line so to speak It is also a bit of useful social commentary on the class system at that time. He goes in straight away as a corporal, on the basis that he has a good education I think, and is soon hobnobbing with officers, some of quite high rank. Because of his Oxford degree I would not have expected someone like him to have gone in at such a lowly rank at all so full credit to him for what he did. He also seems to have got on very well with his fellow soldiers of all ranks and trades and the civilians he meets too. All in all a very good little bit of history well worth the asking price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Motorcycle Roadcraft., 9 April 2014

This book should be compulsory reading for all motorcyclists at any stage of their riding experience. It lets you into the secrets of defensive road riding, as practised by the police and might even save your life one day. I lose count of the number of untidy, unbalanced, ragged riders I see every day, accidents just waiting to happen who could benefit from this book. Buy this book and read it from cover to cover then start practising what you have learnt and next time you see a copper on a bike I bet you'll have a little bit more respect for his skill and knowledge!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good book, does what the the title says!, 16 May 2013

A really good in depth guide to using this very complex but well thought out camera. I don't know how Mr Young found the time to go into such detail but I am glad he did as this book WILL make you a master of this beautiful camera. For me I would have preferred to own the actual book rather than the kindle version as it is something to keep with the camera all the time.

2.0 out of 5 stars Useful book for beginners to photography., 16 May 2013

Not sufficient detail on the camera itself, too much general photographic technique! Could do with a better index. A good book for general usage of the camera but a bit lightweight,
