The Para Fitness Guide (General Military) by Sam Mcgrath
2.0 out of 5 stars Lacks depth and detail, 30 Jun 2014
As well as a few factual errors (e.g. that anaerobic exercise relies on oxygen already in the muscle) the content is generally superficial. On the mental preparation side, the messages are fairly platitudinous and don't go much beyond motivation is a good thing and you should try to motivate yourself however works for you.

The physical section has similar problems. There are some useful tips, such as the talking test to determine how hard you are working and a guide to heart rate, but the level of content… Read more
Python for Data Analysis: Data Wrangling with Pand&hellip by Wes McKinney

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for University, 6 April 2011
In our accommodation building at University, there are around seven small kitchens, each with limited workspace. Two have dishmatics, and are clean and tidy, and the others don't and have dirty cookery jammed in the sink all the time. As individual people generate only a small amount of washing at a time, it would seem wasteful to fill up a sink with soapy water to do just a coupe of mugs or a plate, so instead they get left until they pile up so high that no one dares tackle them. The dishmatic dishwand is a fantastic item and makes washing a single item simple and easy, and I would strongly recommend it to anyone in a similar situation. It has surely saved our corridor from falling out… Read more
