5.0 out of 5 stars Great companion to a new science, 19 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been interested in understanding more about the discoveries of exoplanets in the last 2 decades and have downloaded kindle samples of many books on this topic. Ultimately this is the one I decided to purchase first after I read the sample as I found that Yaqoob's writing was easy to understand for such a complex subject and very down to earth (pun intended). His honesty and non-biassed position in presenting the major problems in the current theories on how life appeared and how planets are formed is a great eye opener and just shows how much work still needs to be done in this field.
This book is definitely a great companion to anyone who wants to understand what is being published through the media which is often overhyped and lacks clarity on what is assumed and what is confirmed. Highly recommended.


Afterlife: Ghost Stories from Goa
Afterlife: Ghost Stories from Goa
by Jessica Faleiro
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Good collection of interesting ghost stories, 9 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Exotic and entertaining this book is a window to the spiritual culture of Goa; this Indian state which was a Portuguese colony. The story takes place at the reunion of a local family who's cosmopolitan members share stories on the surnatural and the obscure. Through these well crafted stories we get an insight into the deeply rooted catholic culture that still influences Goa today. The Ghost stories are varied and lively yet fit well within the overall flow of the book which is probably why it works so well ; interesting short stories that you can read in an evening embedded within a more complex family story that will reward the reader at the end. Everyone will come out with something after reading this.
Ms Faleiro's first book is a promising start and I hope to read her future as soon as it is published. I highly recommend it.
