5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality all-around nutrition textbook, 19 Sept. 2011
I have to write this review to provide some balance to the previous reviewer. This is a high-quality, concise textbook for undergraduate and postgraduate taught courses, not a comprehensive textbook extensively referenced as a resource for fellow nutrition professionals. The authors are all well-respected experts in the field of nutritional science, although they obviously write at a level sympathetic to the needs of the typical undergraduate more in need of basic scientific knowledge than research-level controversies. The previous reviewer appears to be rather politically-motivated and therefore would not be satisfied with what it essentially a course textbook. And yes, there are still many apparently simple questions in nutrition that have not been categorically answered due to the methodological limitations of conducting RCTs in this area of science. Someone with even the most basic knowledge of nutritional science would understand this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great solution, 5 Feb. 2010
Bought this to replace a system that changed the channel on Sky from upstairs through the TV cable. This was very slow and unresponsive. However, the Marmitek set is fast, easy to set up and hassle-free. Much recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 17 Oct. 2006
This review is from: Hello Everything (Audio CD)
The man looks and sounds like a contestant from Robot Wars, but underneath he is the Jimi Hendrix of bass guitar. Mix this incredible funky, innovative bass playing with an electronic style that reminds me very much of the Future Sound of London and you have a real feast of an album. So much to listen to in each track and lots of diversity between them. Highly recommended.
