Well, this is good book and well worth reading. It has lots of evidence so it is difficult to contradict.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! The best book I've ever read!, 15 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the best book I've ever read. It details all the various theories on why we are not hearing Extra Terrestrial Civilizations past communications and why we are not visited by them (unless you are and idiot and think they are here already!) I have always believed that the probability of an ETC like us is very tiny, and so my theory is that there is a singular explanation for Fermi' 'Silence'....That is that the chance of intelligent technologically communicating life is close to zero so it could only ever happen once.

Plumbing    R.D. Treloar   3rd edition: Heating and Gas Installations
Plumbing R.D. Treloar 3rd edition: Heating and Gas Installations
by R. D. Treloar
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, 8 Oct 2011
This book is full of useful content to plumbers and managers of plumbing projects. You can use it in so many ways. The content is not too difficult to understand. Someone in education should make this a standard textbook for all young people to read. It is well written, very precise, not overbearing, and full of useful diagrams. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good book, 8 Aug 2009
This is a good book, but it simply follows Dawkins exposition of God as from static standard religions that believe in a Creator God. If one instead believes that in the past, holy men, liberated their minds (souls) from their dying bodies, and now exist in a parallel universe, as part of a natural phenomenon, and that somehow they have the power to influence human social development, perhaps because they need to reach a optimum power point to be able to survive the death of our universe, then this book is a waste of time. Dawkins is a limited critic for all he can tell you is SCIENCE. As a scientist and a historian myself I find his analysis sound on every point, but, and this is most important, human knowledge and imagination are limited. WE CANNOT KNOW FOR CERTAIN SINCE WE DO NOT KNOW ALL POSSIBLE SCENARIOS and HAVE NO WAY TO INVESTIGATE THEM. So buy this book if you wish to read conventional scientific wisdom, argument, and counter argument, but if you want to THINK FOR YOURSELF, then don't bother.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book but I don't understand Box 4.3 on page 122, 24 Jun 2009
This is a fantastic book full of loads of great explanations of how things work for beginners. Usually I'm pretty good at maths and understand these kinds of books perfectly well. Having read it all I can say it is well worth buying. However, I just don't understand box 4.3 on page 122. It's sheer gibberish written in a way that jumps too quickly across the steps, so that the learner is left trying to figure it all out themselves. The more I look at it the more puzzled I get. I hope in future this part is re-explained as it makes no sense at all really.

1.0 out of 5 stars Reginald Perrin new series, 31 May 2009
Not as good as the original which featured the manic Leonard Rossiter. Don't like the new cast very much, though the girl who plays Jasmine is a fine actress, and is totally wasted. Martin Clunes does his best to carry off the role, but just lacks the madness of the original Perrin. Would advise everyone not to buy this DVD and go for Rossiter version which is an absolute scream. The DVD like the TV series lacks full cast credits. One lady who takes the part of an escort at the office party is not credited even though she is part of a line of jokes. Why not? She is much more than an extra. Everyone who took part should be listed. Other than that the DVD quality is good, and there are no faults in the product.
