Star Trek: The Fall: Revelation and Dust (Star Trek: The Next Generation)
Star Trek: The Fall: Revelation and Dust (Star Trek: The Next Generation)
Price: 3.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Ponderous, and odd POV switches, but overall quite good, 12 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It was a shocking and interesting start to the series that left me hungry for the next book. Odd style and full of POV switching and overwrought descriptions of things, but otherwise a decent enough book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Contrived, poor plot devices and cliche ridden, 12 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had high hopes for this book, after the first in the series managed to get me hooked despite its short comings.

This one, however, managed to put me off the rest of the series entirely. It was baldy written, with gratuitous use of the horrible "but little did he know, in the future X would happen" cliche that makes me want to vomit.

Shame, this book essentially killed the series for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best recipe book for Vim ever written, 10 Dec 2012
Drew's no-nosnese and straightforward approach which have made his vimcasts video tutorials an internet phenomenon has made this simply the best Vim recipe book ever written.

Being able to dip in and out, with cross-references where required was very useful, literally just a case of "I wonder if I can do X" and flipping to the tutorial in the book.

It's a must for any engineer who use Vim as their editor of choice, or anyone wanting to learn.
