4.0 out of 5 stars A comedian's album, 11 Jan. 2002
This review is from: Derek & Clive [Live] (Audio CD)
There's an old show business story about a team of TV writers sitting around in a room telling the funniest, most off-the-wall jokes that anyone had ever heard. After a few minutes, one of them says "OK, it's time to stop and actually write the show." They then proceed to sober up and turn out the usual TV fare.
The "Derek and Clive" albums are like sitting in a session like that - they're terrific if only for the stream-of-consciousness raw liquor humor they contain and which the public usually doesn't see because it fails to lend itself to conventional forms and delivery. This first album still has pieces that resemble the usual Cook & Moore sketch comedy, but there are still many great examples of how the comedic mind functions when let completely loose.
WARNING: Don't expect this to be like the Frog & Peach. It's filthy, politically incorrect, and mind corrupting but also hilarious and priceless.

Pulse and Fourier Transform NMR: Introduction to Theory and Methods
Pulse and Fourier Transform NMR: Introduction to Theory and Methods
by Thomas Clark Farrar
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £43.99

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent introduction to the science of NMR, 13 Dec. 2001
This is neither a superficial text nor an extremely complicated work intended for masters of the field. It serves as an excellent introduction for advanced undergraduates or first-year graduate students in chemistry, biochemistry, biophysics, or physics who are interested in the science behind NMR. It includes just enough mathematics to describe its arguments. It was standard reading in my graduate group when I was beginning my Ph.D. work in chemical physics and practically all of us students found it both readable and useful in providing a vocabulary and basic understanding of the field.
