5.0 out of 5 stars A quantum of solace, 1 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book differs from most writings about quantum theory, in focusing more on the human aspects of the great endeavour to uncover one of nature's deepest secrets - what is reality?

The cast is a large, multi-national (although mostly European) one, with the two principal players being (as the title tells you) Albert Einstein and Niels Bohr. The epic, long-running debate between them is the skeleton on which the author builds his story - an approach that helps the reader gain a foothold in the strange world of the quantum, and makes it easier to see just how bizarre the concepts must have seemed in the Twenties and Thirties. And still do, for that matter.

The author does an excellent job in balancing the baffling minutiae of the quantum world with the very human aspects of the story. Anyone interested in quantum theory, or just the history of science in general, will appreciate this book. Highly recommended.

This review is from: Symphonic Star Trek (Audio CD)
If you are a fan of Erich Kunzel's recordings with the Cincinatti Pops Orchestra, you will find this another example of his great talent for orchestration and arrangement, while remaining true to the spirit of the original music.

If you are a fan of the music of Star Trek, this CD will stand comparision with any other recordings. It includes a comprehensive selection, on TV going from "The Menagerie" original pilot through to "Voyager", and on the big screen going from "The Motion Picture" to "Generations". (The album was recorded in 1996, so more recent productions are not represented.)

Finally, if you are fan of both Erich Kunzel AND Star Trek music... need I say more? Just buy and enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, but does the job well, 11 May 2014

With no electronics, and so no batteries required, you can just take this scale out of the box and start using it. Zeroing is very easy - just rotate the whole base until the indicator is back on the zero mark.

With a smart, business-like appearance, this will look at home in most kitchens and should last a long time.


A History of the English-Speaking Peoples, Vol. 1: The Birth of Britain
A History of the English-Speaking Peoples, Vol. 1: The Birth of Britain

5.0 out of 5 stars History brought to life, 11 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Among his many other talents, Churchill was an exceptionally fine writer. His most famous books are probably the 4-volume History of the English-Speaking Peoples, of which this is Volume 1. I unreservedly recommend this and the other three volumes to anyone wanting a high-level (but certainly not superficial) look at the history of these islands. A pleasure to read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality pillowcase, 11 May 2014

This is a high quality product with a suitably luxurious feel. The pillowcase is a little heavier than equivalent products with a lower thread count, although this is not noticeable in use.

4.0 out of 5 stars For Charlie Chan fans, 11 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Readers of the excellent Charlie Chan series may wish to acquire this collection of short stories by the same author, Earl Derr Biggers.

I found the tales variable in quality: some showed their age too much, while others simply did not make that much of an impression. The last couple, however, were excellent - hence four stars rather than three.

This is a high quality product with a suitably luxurious feel. The sheet is a little heavier than equivalent products with a lower thread count, so is probably best suited to relatively cool weather when the extra weight will be welcome.
