This review is from: Go Hurling Kids Sliotar (Misc.)
Bigger and softer than the match official sliotar - great for me and my toddler playing in the back garden.

Don't miss Peter Hajek's deliciously satirical vision of a new social contract for publicly funded healthcare in an ageing population.

5.0 out of 5 stars Future perfect, 16 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Cutting edge writing with a great pedigree. I suspect the graphics on the Kindle don't quite do justice to the artwork, but the writing is just exceptional and dripping with future perfect zeitgeist. Can I subscribe?

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential, 16 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An essential resource for public health specialty registrars studying for MFPH Part A andB exams, preparing to undertake supervised on-call duties and for later refresher training. The new edition brings the curent guidance as up to date as it can, given that HPA guidelines for each disease/infection are updated on a staggered rolling programme. The recent healthcare reforms in England resulting from the Health & Social Care Act 2012 mean than a number of structures and processes will need to be updated again in the near future. The most recent Kindle edition has a number of technical improvements, including better indexing and layout, which make reading and referencing a lot easier.


Merriam-Webster's Medical Desk Dictionary

4.0 out of 5 stars Integrated with Kindle dictionary lookup features, 16 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm not medically trained, but I read a lot of medical literature so I need to be able to lookup key definitions and concepts on the go. I read most of my textbooks and a Readability digest on the Kindle, so it makes sense to be able to carry a medical dictionary on the Kindle. Having previously bought Black's Medical Dictionary, I thought the content was excellent but lamented the lack of Kindle dictionary lookup features which would have added considerably to it's value: [...]

Webster's Medical Dictionary *CAN* be used as a default Kindle dictionary, which goes to show how well the technology can be used. Unfortunately for me, it is written in US rather than UK English and some terminology requires extra lookups for synonyms and alternative spellings. If only Black's would follow suit...

5.0 out of 5 stars Concise clarity, 16 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 30 More Fallacies (Kindle Edition)
I like the way this book is written. Clear, concise and critically clever. All of it makes such sense that it's easy to say "I knew it all anyway". Sometimes it's important to have key concepts reiterated, reinforced and spelt out to us simply. Having read this book quickly, it feels great to be able to spot a fallacious arguments in the media and public discourse - but even better to know what the fallacy is and the logic behind it.


A Public Health Perspective on End of Life Care
A Public Health Perspective on End of Life Care
by Joachim Cohen
Edition: Paperback
Price: £37.99

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent primer for public health specialists on end of life care (and vice versa), 16 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is an excellent primer for both public health specialists working in the field of end of life care intelligence, policy and strategy and for healthcare professionals in palliative and supportive care services looking to find out more about the public health approach.

The book is well researched and expertly written, taking the reader through a range of key public health concepts, including the application of a holistic public health perspective, quality of life at the end of life, equity of access to services, promoting integrated care, inequalities at the end of life, policy and bioethics.

Having recently completed both a postgraduate dissertation on this topic, I only wish I'd read it at the beginning of my work and not right at the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Articulate, eloquent and full of poise and meaning, 16 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mortality (Kindle Edition)
This year has focussed my mind and thoughts around life, how it starts, how we live it and how it ultimately ends. From personal experience to more academic study, death and dying has featured heavily for me this year. Christopher's story is articulate, eloquent and full of poise and meaning. Like many lives, this book ends too soon and leaves you wanting to read more. It's the first time I've read anything written by Christopher Hitchens and there's irony that his last written words are the first that I've read. I'm looking forward to working back through his work and seeing the world through his eyes.

2.0 out of 5 stars Content great, but Kindle edition lacks critical features, 31 May 2011
As expected, the Kindle version of Black's Medical Dictionary cannot be faulted on it's content.

Unfortunately, it is not set up as a dictionary on the Kindle in the same way as the OED and so you cannot set it as the default dictionary for the device to look up terms in Kindle textbooks and PDFs. Neither does it let you search for terms and definitions easily within the dictionary (other than as you might search for a word or phrase within a book). Finally, whilst words in the definitions which are themselves defined elsewhere in the volume are highlighted in capitals, they are not hyperlinked and so not easy to cross reference for readers.

Given the price of the book, it's a real shame that this basic functionality on the Kindle has been overlooked and I hope Blacks consider including it in future revisions.
