Seven Elements That Have Changed The World: Iron, &hellip by John Browne
3.0 out of 5 stars Note the Notes, 18 April 2014
This tries to be a scientific book but fails because of Brownes insistence on reminding us how rich he is (pad in Venice buys expensive works of art and books etc) and how well he did his job. What really niggles me in this type of book are the 'notes'. On the chapter about carbon there are 121 instances of those annoyingly small subscript numbers where to find out what he's talking about you have to go to the back, find the notes section, find the right chapter and then find the right note, then you can read the detail, why this detail cannot be included in the main text totally confuses me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Gladys, 20 Mar 2014
This is in my view one of the best Gladys Knight tracks ever recorded. You can literally listen to it over and over again.
Streets with a story: The book of Islington by Eric A Willats
5.0 out of 5 stars Hens Teeth, 24 Feb 2014
Hardly worth a review because copies of it are as rare as hens teeth. If you are an old Islingtonite (or is it Islingtonian) as I am then this is your bible. Its not an exciting read but it is the culmination of a huge amount of research not available anywhere else on the history of virtually every thoroughfare in the Borough, how it got its name and what if anything it was previously called.
