5.0 out of 5 stars general, 9 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ah, now this is a nicely ordered text, although the lack of full colour still displeases me; given the worthiness of the content and the pitch, I'd have thought it would deserve the full colour spread. Content seems like good, general-level, informative stuff to me.

Shame it wasn't more nicely presented; and the text is a little dated - but good enough, as is what it claims to be. Colour would be nice.

5.0 out of 5 stars text, 9 Aug 2013

Apparently, it's quite a weighty text and a heavy going piece, but also most informative, my friends tells me; I suspect it's a PhD thesis written up for the public.

5.0 out of 5 stars Text, 19 May 2013

This review is from: Cave Art (Paperback)
This is a marvellous text. The thesis is clearly presented, and un-pretentiously written. The authority of the author is high (and it is worth, I feel, reading David Lewis-Williams's text "The Mind in the Cave" along side it for further illumination of the thesis). The photographs are large, crisp and clear, and the captions unambiguous. The chronological order presentation is helpful. A good buy, I feel.

A lavishly illustrated text in a user-friendly format to accompany the revelationary British Museum exhibition of the same name. Go see, or if you've missed it, go read.

A crisp, well-illustrated account of this ice-age era art piece. Good accompaniment to the just-to-finish British Museum exhibition where this piece is on display.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible radio, 19 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For the length of ariel, compared to like-machines located in the same place, the reception is very poor. The product is, I believe, over-priced for what it is. I have subsequently purchased a more impressive product from Bush for one-third of the price, with which I am much happier.

I am sure it will be great (I've yet to read more than snippets); but the text text layout looks clear, but I suspect there are no illustrations - shame, because concepts are always clearer, I feel, when accompanied in this manner.
