3.0 out of 5 stars I wanted to like it more, 23 Dec. 2013
I was hoping for a more comprehensive writing on the industry but felt it to be rather vague. What was written wasn't bad but indecisive if it was for a beginner flyer to a more frequent one / enthusiast. As an enthusiast there wasn't much of interest and found the book rather mediocre.

The author is American based and much of the stories are US orientated. He does not disguise his appreciation of Boeing and not a fan of Airbus (especially the A380). Saying this it is his opinion and doesn't bad mouth Airbus as such except for his opinion on the A380.

In the end I felt the author could have been more comprehensive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great film from Leyla Hakim, 11 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Where Do We Go Now? [DVD] (DVD)
This is a film regarding a community in Lebanon divided by religion. It is not light hearted and some scenes you really feel for the characters, yet it is not so heavy that you would not want to watch it again. It is humurous at places however it is the type of humour of the absurdity of the situation rather than crass humour. Well worth watching this film.

Build It!: DIY Projects for Farmers, Smallholders and Gardeners
by Joe Jacobs
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Down to earth book, 9 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I find this book very good in giving ideas and the basics on building simple sheds and other systems. It is not a comprehensive book 'hold-your-hand' instructions. It gives good suggestions on materials that are around such as pallets. The author has a down to earth writing format which I find refreshing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great account of British diving, 10 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Diver's Tale (Paperback)
I've read a collection of books on stories about diving, usually someone famous within the dive community doing dives to unusual sites, wrecks etch. It's not a book by some celebrity but a true account of real diving in the UK by an experienced diver.

What Nick Lyon did here was write an account of British diving as it is. Not that glamorous view swim suit babes in clear tropical waters but a real account of cold water, poor visibility difficult dives. Most important it is an account of comradeship which and makes you wish you had a dive mate like he did.

The writing is humorous, down to earth and doesn't beat about the bush. I laughed out far too often to the annoyance of my wife (and me as I had to constantly repeat the section I just read).

Well worth the read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nice Idea - Poor quality pictures, 27 Jan. 2012
I was looking forward to receiving this calender but sadly it proved to be a disappointment. To put it kindly it feels like someones holiday snapshots with a low budget camera. The quality of the pictures is poor with much grain and the pictures are similar. No doubt it was taken on the sameday.

Nice idea but Browntrout should not have published it, the quality is dismall. Pity.
