5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent choice as Waterproof Outers, 15 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I ordered these Gortex outers to protect my Boiled Woollen Dachstein Mitts in extreme weather. They are absolutely perfect for this use as these Gortex Outers are NOT LINED and therefore allow the mitts to slide easily in and out of the Outer without any snagging. In addition, there is an adjustable strap at the wrist and an elasticated cord at the ends for a secure fit and to keep the weather well and truly out. They are extremely light, being single layer but made to grade 1 Military standard so feel robust. The Gortex allows the glove to breath and so prevents the Dachstein mitts becoming damp with sweat. Sizes were as expected. I am about a glove size 9.5 - 10 and chose the medium size. This was perfect to fit over the mitt easily. All in all, very impressed.

2.0 out of 5 stars Defective upon receipt, 28 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Binoculars looked promising. However, the focusing wheel did not engage with the focusing mechanism, out of the box, leaving us unable to focus and rendering the binoculars useless. Rating based on personal experience, however the third party seller I purchased them from (not Amazon) subsequently proved unreliable. I question, therefore, whether they were serviceable when dispatched to me. Notwithstanding this, the binoculars did appear otherwise robust and well made. This may have been a one-off incident. Amazon service was excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cat with a twist in the tale, 19 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book was an absolute pleasure to read! For a biography, John Gribbins gets the narrative just right between the fascinating and colourful life of Schroedinger, combined with that of his academic achievements. I found the description of the relationships between the great physists of the time particularly interesting. John skilfully brings the book to a close with accounts of the legacy that Schroedinger has left behind....... with an unexpected twist in the tale at the end.....very satisfying.

5.0 out of 5 stars SUPERLATIVE, 11 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a superlative chronometer that provides a clear yet distinctive face. As with the Mountain Commando it is a highly desirable watch that epitomises everything excellent in a Swiss watch: Elegance, attention to detail; precision and robustness. The strap consists of high grade leather and is both light and comfortable to wear. Another Wenger success. Highly recommended

The Shape of Inner Space: String Theory and the Geometry of the Universe's Hidden Dimensions
The Shape of Inner Space: String Theory and the Geometry of the Universe's Hidden Dimensions

5.0 out of 5 stars THE PERFECT SHAPE, 9 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although this book emanates from a mathematical context, it has been co-authored by Shing-Tung Yau and Steve Nadis and impeccably offers two complementary perspectives.

In doing so it provides a fascinating and unusual account not normally described in many general physics books extolling the viewpoint of the mathematician over that of the physicist, highlighting the fundamental differences in approach each takes to similar physical problems and how mathematics manages to overcome many of the obstacles faced by the physicist in explaining Quantum reality. This is incredibly interesting to discover and not something I have seen elsewhere.

However, the main premise of the book leaves you utterly breathless as both Steve Nadis and Shing-Tung Yau take us on a journey never before presented in a way that opens up the mysteries of Calabi-Yau manifolds and ten and eleven dimensional spacetime. Shing-Tung Yau describes the heartache as well as the ecstasy of discovering the intricacies of multi dimensional spaces.

There is little in the way of mathematics other than fairly straight-forward schoolboy algebra and precious little of that. However, the physical concepts he describes, textually, whilst written in plain English, are truly astounding and well worth taking the ride to discover.

This is a truly worthwhile read. Please do not be put off by others attempts to place this book in an elite league that can only be understood by physics professors. Nothing could be further from the truth. The only perquisite to enjoyment of this book is an open mind and a healthy desire to learn. Please enjoy this book for what it is, an outstanding view of quantum reality.

5.0 out of 5 stars TRUE DEVOTION, 23 Jun. 2011
This review is from: Unmistaken Child [DVD] (DVD)
Unmistaken Child took me into a world I am less familiar with but, nonetheless, remain totally open minded about, the Buddhist belief in reincarnation. This touching documentary highlights the true and utter devotion of one Buddhist monk and his search for the reincarnation of his Buddhist master. The beauty and sensitivity with which this documentary has been crafted exquisitely demonstrates the way of Buddhism and its unrelenting reverence to the Buddha. The spiritual enlightenment and the searing emotional entanglement of human existence is played out to the full in this truly amazing story of dedication and whilst there were some difficult scenes with which the westerner may struggle initially to understand, you can only emerge from watching this documentary wiser and far, far more enlightened.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most comprehensive book on Mah Jongg, 20 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book represents the most definitive and balanced account of Mah Jongg to date as the majority of books on the subject seem biased towards American hybridisation. A D Millington seeks to re-establish the original classical Chinese interpretation of the game and provides an invaluable insight into the history and development of Mah Jongg. Having read several similar accounts, A D Millington's remains the the most objective book I have read.

This account is definitely highly recommended.
