The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks
by Rebecca Skloot
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.29

5.0 out of 5 stars Henrietta you were some woman in life, Even more so in Death.(But you had the last laugh?), 9 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Could be the most important book in the world.There cannot be many people whose lives haven't been altered by Henrietta Lacks.But her family have been treated in the most shoddy way possible. l do hope her family get a bit of the BILLIONS of pounds Big Pharma have made from selling her cells without her or her families knowledge. Must raise my hat to Bobette Lacks For being to astute .This is a tale of Pain (and massive medical strides) ,intrigue, lies and cheating to a poor Black family.Also this book tells of other travesties Black people have been subjected too.You could be forgiven if you thought this book was fiction but its history , I do hope it does get better for once for the Lacks family in the coming years.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Dogs....., 26 Nov. 2015
I have used one of these as a Professional for years . Working in the field it is a very good ,Far more powerful than my S+++++ON gas iron. Just be aware it uses a lot of gas (but thats why its powerful) and the biggest tip wears, but saying that its after a lot of use. My choice of tool even over Elec guns. There is only one thing better ,and thats a home made 12 volt Diesel engine glow plug within a ex 3 phase plug, male pin, but thats another story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book Down Again!, 18 Jun. 2015
I kept putting this book down.Why ? do l hear you say..Well l thought the greatest accolade of a book would be "l couldn't put it down" But not in Grahams latest book,Different Natures. You see he is so good painting pictures in my mind (like a Hippy Biker Rembrandt) l have to put the book down ,pick up the smart phone and Google something he has seen or said. A Yamaha Venture ,A town called Chicken in Alaska ,A State prison in Chowchilla California, Big Bend Nation Park, See where lm going? Its not just a book ,its an eduction ,an adventure, I short an insight to what l probably will never see. I read all the time ,and this book has taken a very long time to read, But l have been educated ,l have seen things ,and above all l have been on his trip. I love all his work and to be honest l thought this may be a miss mash of some early and later trips. But it is not.May be his best yet.As usual he takes you on his journey ,which l love because its real feelings and real life. I do know Graham now as l am also a biker and see him at the Adventure bike type do`s, No Bull, he is a really nice genuine bloke ,doing his thing on a bike that lots of rich bikers would sneer at. If you buy this book you shouldn't be disappointed .

A must to see.This film encapsulates not only the last days in Hitler`s bunker but what the man was like himself.I had read quite a bit about the last days and the film is 95% true to the situation.well worth watching. (The bunker has only been demolished in 80s ) as the Russians failed to complete the job just after the war.

5.0 out of 5 stars He`s done it again., 7 Sept. 2014
If you are a biker or not this is for you.After reading and loving Graham`s first book l was waiting for the next.. and it doesn't disappoint.I am not going to do a spoiler alert on it so here`s the bones. As in the first book he takes you with him,All the trial and tribulations ,your there.I enjoy reading these books because as a biker ,as of yet, l cannot afford to go to the more extreme places he goes, so l read the book and go there on the cheap.He financed his first trip by going on the program Deal or no Deal, Could have done better but he brought a really cheap 650 single cylinder bike on E Bay for £750,and as they say The rest is ..well you know. l have met Graham ( Flid) quite a few times and he is a great unassuming bloke.We are so lucky in the Adventure bike world as there are some cracking riders and tales. Bloody good read and entertainment.Especially when he falls off,Got pics as well.

Whilst browsing a charity shop l came across this book.I travel a fair bit on motorbikes,and would not usually get a travel book about driving full bore though many countries.But it was cheap so l got it,and glad l did .A smashing book not at all what l was expecting,A very good read,and very interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just an observation., 6 April 2013
l have just been reading some of the reviews,as l use them and a friend is going to get some locks on my recommendation. At first l fitted two locks,l had to space them depth wise with bits of wood,no prob if your are a diy person.Now l fitted a pair at the bottom which did the job nicely.But then l realized the top lock can easily be forced and the door (they have no strength in them)could be pushed in from the top and entry gained.So l brought another pair so all four corners are locked. It may be a palaver to open them,but l am a lot happier at night.and l do know l tried my best.


Blood Red Snow
Blood Red Snow

Price: £13.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read, 16 Jan. 2013
This review is from: Blood Red Snow (Paperback)
Having read many books on the Eastern front,l was not disappointed.it tells of his life on the front,but he must have believed in what he was doing at the time as he keeps calling them the enemy.not the Russians,( a lot of authors now distance themselves from their teachings) or is that just me?All in all a very good read,well worth buying.l am now going to reread the Forgotten Soldier 3rd time.
