5.0 out of 5 stars Five Stars, 14 July 2014
It grabs and does not let go, not even after reading the last paragraph.

Very tough. My laptop does not have a battery, so I've been dragging the adapter (and the connected extension cord) all around the house for a long time without problems.

Really, really basic. If you've already done some obstacle races, there is little, if any, that this book can tell you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Satisfying, gripping and, not least, informative, 12 May 2013
This review is from: Airframe (Kindle Edition)
Crichton definitely did his homework researching this book and it makes it very convincing, while his movie-like writing style works for this subject.


Eat and Run: My Unlikely Journey to Ultramarathon Greatness
Eat and Run: My Unlikely Journey to Ultramarathon Greatness
by Scott Jurek
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Deeply personal and memorable, 27 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I usually run half-marathons, so I can only try to imagine ultras, but I fully empathized with the simple pleasure of running, of being alone with your thoughts on a trail. And it has also convinced me that going vegan/vegetarian is feasible, will help with running and has opened new gastronomical avenues.

5.0 out of 5 stars Memorable, 6 Jan. 2013

The book confirmed, with captivating and inspiring stories, my experiences of running barefoot-style (with Vibrams) and of the sense of community during organized runs (particularly obstacle races).

3.0 out of 5 stars Too hard to offer any shock protection, 12 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not really a gel case, since it is very thin and very hard. It looks nice, it is cheap and seems durable, but do not expect any shock protection from it. Also, the screen protection seems efficient, but it is impossible to get it on without bubbles getting trapped under it (unlike the previous screen protection I had).

5.0 out of 5 stars Really does offer a better understanding of the moonshot, 3 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good explanations, plenty of informative diagrams and impressive photographs, tackles every technological aspect of the launch, insertion, coast, landing, take off, return and EVA.

Red Sky: A Novel of Love, Space, & War

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazingly gripping and involving, 8 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you've read astronaut Mullane's autobiography (Riding Rockets), this is an absolute must. His writing talent carries over entirely and you can definitely feel his experience as an astronaut making this work of fiction seem very real.
If you have not read Riding Rockets, waste no time. It is an incredibly impressive, personal, funny and enlightening account of what it means to be (and to become) an astronaut and to ride the Space Shuttle around the earth.
