4.0 out of 5 stars Fresh, interesting writing with gay central characters, 20 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The three Ballena Beach novels make a surprisingly good read and should be taken in sequence. There is suspense, drama, humour and sex and some tolerably good writing about characters one comes to care about. Mild suspension of disbelief is required at some points, but that's fine in the pursuit of entertaining fiction. It's great to have substantial, credible gay actors in the story but these are not 'gay' novels in the raw sense at all. They are well structured, have good pace and left me wanting to read more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent, comprehensive overiew of current thinking, 11 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an accessible, lively, interesting review of risk and its social meaning through the ages and in the contemporary world. It expresses the view that, '...risks provide windows into how societies express and define themselves.' It examines risk decisions, risk perception and communication and much else with great clarity and intelligence. Full of real-life dilemmas (medicines, food safety, ecological issues, climate, sex education) it's a brilliant introduction to the subject for anyone and a stimulating revision text for those already familiar with the topic.
