5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect balance of theory and practice, 10 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Tariq has written an excellent introduction to neural networks which takes you seamlessly from first principles through to a fully functional neural network with advanced optimisation techniques. Clearly written and with useful examples peppered throughout, you will have a good understanding of what the neural network is doing whilst still achieving impressive prediction results. He also invites you to explore areas which can lead to further development and understanding but which would break the flow if included in the main text.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another triumph by Taleb, 6 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is very much in keeping with his previous works but expands its application into a broad number of domains. It is a pleasure to read and is very hard to put down. My only regret is that the book isn't longer with more details as i feel Taleb has so much to say that i would love to hear. A must read for anyone really since his arguments will better you no matter what life you lead. Be warned that it may lead you to ask some uncomfortable questions of yourself and others.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing given his reputation, 6 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was looking forward to this book providing some novel insight into evolutionary fitness. Sadly it does not deliver. Much of the information is just standard "don't eat carbs", other parts are just plain contradictory like his arguments regarding fat. With regards to exercise it seems very watered down and aimed at not scaring people into doing too much. Gary Taubes book about why we get fat is a far superior book as he provides a well thought out and researched argument rather than cherry picked studies and contradictory statements.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing book, well argued and convincing, 6 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Upon starting this book i was somewhat disappointed by the slow and pedantic nature of the writing. Once you get past the initial spoon feeding though the book becomes a very well laid out and convincing book. I have a keen interest in both diet and exercise and whilst there are a few minor points that i would disagree with, Taubes has managed to convince me of the causality at work between fat cells as a cause of over eating rather than the contrary.

This book is a must read for anyone interested in their health or looking for an unbiased real world method of weight loss.

Home4physio Pro Foam Roller 15cm x 90cm Blue

4.0 out of 5 stars Great roller for beginners, 22 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This a great roller for those who are new to self myofascial release. It is soft enough to not hurt too much but can still affect muscle tissue quality, after a while though it does get a bit soft, I took the inside out which is both harder and thinner and that is a good progression. Eventually though I bough a length of similar diameter PVC pipe and then a black Rumble Roller when they came out.

I am currently in love with my Rumble Roller and would never go back but it is definitely not for the faint hearted or the beginner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well researched and presented book, 22 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book provides a wealth of nutritional knowledge presented in an easy to understand and concise format. The foods are sorted into categories and then individually analysed from an objective perspective.

Whilst the book will be nothing new to fans of Paleo or Clarence Bass it provides extra insight into the health benefits that underpin that school of thought.

It is a great reference book and very much enjoy all of Jonny Bowden's work and the contributions he makes to his website.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great vacuum, works brilliantly, the true standard., 22 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not quite sure how people manage to complain about this vacuum it is the second one I have used and cannot complain.

I bought one because there was a communal one in my old block of flats and given the beating it took there and still worked after years of neglect it pays great tribute to the robustness and efficacy of the design.

Bought one for my new flat and its easy and effective even on low energy setting.
