2.0 out of 5 stars Two Stars, 10 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just not sharp or focussed enough


Helena: A novel
Helena: A novel
by Evelyn Waugh
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Evelyn Waugh's Masterpiece, 10 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Helena: A novel (Hardcover)
This is a great and greatly under-rated book. The mixture of jokes, teases and moral seriousness is perfectly balanced. If readers don't appreciate that particular combination, the problem is with them, not with the book


Wired for Culture: Origins of the Human Social Mind
Wired for Culture: Origins of the Human Social Mind
by Mark Pagel
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

4.0 out of 5 stars This is a good book, 10 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The data and the arguments are good and valuable. The ending is overly optimistic but even academia should be able to live with that.

This system does what it claims to do and is easy to fit at an astonishingly good price; real value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great film with a message that's worth listening to., 10 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wadjda [DVD] [2012] (DVD)
This is a film with an awful lot of sub-text, about gender and religion, optimism and solidarity, them and us. It should be shown in schools everywhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great book, 1 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book changes how you understand - and demonstrates how little you can understand - about your own mind and personality. Moreover it isn't reductionist and doesn't claim more - or almost anything - for the neuroscience that will one day come to underpin the science that is involved. It's a book that sobers one up.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Analysis But ......, 3 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is not radical enough in the value-set it brings to the situation it accurately analyses and so fails to measure up to the significance - and the tragedy - of the subject matter addressed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Prophet Scorned and Misremembered, 3 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The astonishing thing about this book is not that he was accurate about the history he references and right about the times he analysed, he was also astoundingly prescient about how we live now.
