1.0 out of 5 stars Escharotics burn., 6 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Before using any of the remedies from this book, please read the following article on just how escharotics work and the dangers you face when you use them.

quackwatch.org/01QuackeryRelatedTopics/Cancer/eschar.html

Then you can make an informed decision on whether to proceed.

I cannot in all honesty give this book ANY stars, but the review will not publish without at least one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Informative and readable, 1 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very readable account of the immune system for non-medical people. It is all there, but the technical terms are kept to a minimum and clearly explained.

As the description says, absolutely no personal stories of miracle cures, just factual information about your immune system and how to look after it.

Buy it!


Felidae: A novel of Cats and Murder
Felidae: A novel of Cats and Murder
by Akif Pirincci ( Ralph Noble - Translation )

1.0 out of 5 stars Yukk, 13 Mar 2012
Here is one to avoid. After seeing a passing mention in a thread about something completely different, I downloaded a Kindle sample of Felidae by Akif Pirincci. It was billed as a story of a cat detective, which sounded intriguing, also as not being a children's story, which proved very true.

It started Ok. A streetwise cat, wisecracking like a Raymond Chandler private eye, moves with his owner to a dilapidated apartment in a run-down house. He refers to his owner as his can-opener and puts up with his sentimental attachment for the sake of the food. Very catlike. Written in a long-winded translated-from-the-German style but what the hell. So I downloaded the whole book.

Murdered cats appear in the neighbourhood, their dreadful injuries graphically described. Our hero investigates the upstairs apartment and finds a congregation of cats high on some substance being indoctrinated in the worship of one of their kind and reciting the details of his martyrdom, all graphically and lingeringly described. More and more deaths, more and more bloodsoaked fur and ghastly sadistic injuries.

I found myself skipping several pages to avoid the increasingly lengthy and unpleasant descriptions and get back to some kind of story. Detective cat finds an old diary kept by a scientist who experimented on cats. Again, graphic descriptions of the scientist's increasing obsession with the torture of the creatures, with undertones of eroticism. Then cat detective is seduced by a Mata Hari type feline, graphic and frankly pornographic description of sex scene..... at this point I decided I could take no more. I should have stopped earlier.

My general impression of the author is of a man obsessed with cats and sado-masochism, not necessarily in that order, and getting increasingly turned on himself by what he is writing. Left a bad taste in the memory. Reminded me of what I have heard from professionals who have had dealings with sex offenders - the snail trails remain in the mind.

Could not give it less than one star - I suppose sadomasochistic cat-lovers would enjoy it

Does what it claims to, very useful.

And 2/3 the price of a similar item in a certain through-the-door postal catalogue.

5.0 out of 5 stars The funniest thing I have read in a while, 20 Dec 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Crisis in the golfing world as The August and Venerable Golf Club of St Magnus faces its biggest threat ever.

The action is firmly anchored on the windswept East Coast of Fife, exposed to icy blasts from across the North Sea, and peopled by golfers and committee stalwarts. If Tiger Woods had been a character in this book, the plot would have been quite different (and shorter!)

The funniest thing I have read in a while. Do buy it

4.0 out of 5 stars Fife history with asides, 20 Dec 2010

Not as funny as The Mating-call of the Racket Tailed Drongo but full of asides on the past and present story of the golfing Mecca of St Magnus (sorry, St Andrews)

5.0 out of 5 stars The ultimate coffee table book, 17 Nov 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Or maybe not - bending down to the coffee table with the viewer could be bad on the back. But to do the pictures justice a table to rest the book on is useful. VERY impressive photography from 150 years ago when everything had to be manually calculated and equipment was solid wood and metal. Full marks to Brian May for a scholarly and fascinating book.
