Parallel Worlds: The Science of Alternative Universes and Our Future in the Cosmos
by Michio Kaku
Edition: Paperback
Price: 7.69

5.0 out of 5 stars A great journey through physics, 25 Feb 2014
Brilliant. A really enjoyable listen (audiobook version) .. Listened twice now as there is so much here, from the sorts of thing I covered in 6th form, college and then some. The great thing is its accessible, interesting, mind stretching, well written and well narrated !!

Looking for the next audiobook from Michio ( I have lots of time in car to listen but less time to read :( )

Money well spent !

4.0 out of 5 stars Practicing the preach ... to a good end., 10 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good read!

I don't know why but I was possibly expecting a little more from the reviews I read,however I can't fault this book.
It's an easy enjoyable read where the art of sketch noting has been put into practice through out the whole book. This in itself showed the value... Not a dull page, some memorable after a single pass!

I guess I have always done some form of sketchnoting and although there was not huge amounts fundamentally new to me, here it did surface the real value, and cause me to think,focus and find enjoyment in note talking again.
Well worth a read and an hour or two of your time

5.0 out of 5 stars Never realised I needed one until I used one, 27 Jan 2014
This review is from: WORX Jawhorse (Misc.)
Was bought one as a gift.... Lucky me! It's brilliant!!
Very solid and well made
Quite heavy but that and the 3 feet are what makes it so stable
Quick hands free jaw action works a treat and just makes the whole experience of working in a vice/workbench situation effortless
Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid, functional as as far as I can tell accurate, 8 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good value ... Which? Found this to be better than some much more expensive units
If you don't need loads of bells n whistles ( and who really does!?) then it's just the ticket


Corel Painter X3 Upgrade (PC/Mac)

3.0 out of 5 stars Painter as great as always but upgrade price is too high, 26 Aug 2013
Some new features & some tweaks to existing functions
Painter x3 is built on painter 12 and does provide some enhancements but really very little to warrant such a price if upgrading from painter 12

To search for brushes by name seems to be the headline feature Not worth headline position IMO
Perspective tool is good as is the brush preview
Access to training videos (painter jam) is not a product feature IMO but is touted as such
A context menu function is provided which focuses on key parameters for the brush you are using ... This is pretty good and helps with what can be a cluttered and confusing array of options sometimes
Cloning upgrade is of only limited value in use, and reference image capability is hardly groundbreaking
64 bit now supported which is good.

So, if you are new to painter and are buying full version then you will get a great product at an appropriate price

If you are using painter 12 I'd suggest you should think very hard before parting with this much cash.
Major release price.... Point release improvements !!

I guess I find it harder to accept this sort of price in an age where there is much high quality and sophisticated sw development on ios platforms being delivered for only a few pounds! None compare with the depth of what Painter offers it has to be said, but it is a consideration in these hard cash-strapped times!

Halve the upgrade price and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb! User friendly camera, 7 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
well made camera with a solid feel (if a little plasticy)
many functions ... most of which are actually useful !
Great image quality
Flexible controls and best of all this is a camera that is user friendly. You can use the viewfinder to show nearly all the info you ever need ... i.e. hardly ever need to revert to the great LCD screen when taking shotsl
Articulated LCD was a must have for me.. and this one works as well as any canon I've used in the past.
Good compromise (Im not sure its really even a compromise) between compactness and a full DSLR.

Only slight negatives are
1) strap provided feels really nasty, stiff and cheap
2) build quality not quite at the level of the Canon G11 that I previously owned

Overall though its great and I don't think you'd regret purchasing
