The Bible Unearthed: Archaeology's New Vision of A&hellip by Israel Finkelstein
5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, 8 Jun 2014
So, the Old Testament was written during the 7th century BCE, and the archaeology confirms it. The mythic narratives contained in Genesis, concerning the Exodus, and so on, never happened... No surprises to a Heathen like me (but rather gratifying, nonetheless), but worth taking on board if you're of a Creationist/Intelligent Design point of view. The book is well-written, and it doesn't labour its revisionist perspective too much. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it (in a very short space of time).
Symphony No. 10 (Ormandy, Po) ~ Gustav Mahler
5.0 out of 5 stars Still the best, 8 Jun 2014
The first recorded version of Cooke's original score. In my view, it remains the yardstick, whereby all future performances must be assessed. Even the Berlin strings (under Rattle) don't quite match the Philadelphia sound. Dramatic and moving.
Betron B750s Earphones Headphones, High Definition&hellip by Betron
5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!, 13 Mar 2014
These headphones are first-class. The firm bass response is crisp, but never 'boomy'. I own several sets of 'phones, but the Beltron out-perform the best (and most expensive) I have. Worth every penny!
