Incredible! Plant Veg, Grow a Revolution by Pamela Warhurst
I bought this book, having seen co-author Pam Warhurst give an incredible talk about the subject to TEDx Houses of Parliament a couple of years ago. The book is written in a style that's every bit as engaging as Pam's rousing talk. It is the story of how Pam and others helped to galvanize a community by growing food everywhere that food could possible be grown - in vacant plots of land and containers all over the town of Todmorden: at the railway station, outside the police station, in the grounds of the local school, and even in the graveyard.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This book leads the reader through the creation of a simple HTML game, and in so doing introduces key features including guidelines for drawing, animation, 3D, sound, event handling, concurrency/threading, saving persistent data, and building games which are flexible enough to work across multiple platforms both on desktops and phones. It's probably not a book for complete beginners - early code samples seem to assume at least some familiarity with HTML and JavaScript - but for anyone with some level of technical competence it should provide a very useful primer. The book is well-written, and the code samples clear, concise and relevant, making the process easy to follow. It's not… Read more
