Alan Turing: Unlocking the Enigma (Kindle Single)
Alan Turing: Unlocking the Enigma (Kindle Single)
Price: £1.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Unsung hero, becomes sung in print, and of course, after he's dead and can't appreciate it...., 12 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I guess Turing has become fashionable lately, sadly, not when he was actually alive...what a remarkable and peculiar man. You will like this on lots of levels, intelligence, autistic behaviour, weird interaction, and the list goes on....if you generally like bios, you'll like this, exactly the basis for the popularity of the current movie on his life. He may have prevented the loss of WW2.


The Girl Who Played with Fire (Millennium series Book 2)
The Girl Who Played with Fire (Millennium series Book 2)
Price: £3.66

5.0 out of 5 stars Do not pass 'go', read this right after Larsson snags you the 'Girl with the Dragon Tattoo'...you'll love it!, 12 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Read 'Dragon Tattoo first, then this and prepare for a page turning thriller...incredible! I hardly ever read fiction, and these Larsson books are irresistible...I'm going for all of them!!! Can't recommend more enthusiastically, promise you..........


Reminiscences of the Civil War
Reminiscences of the Civil War
Price: £0.99

5.0 out of 5 stars The most brilliant General who is rarely ever mentioned, and so much less known than the usual. Read this and see...., 12 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Here is exposed in his own hand, the observations and psychology of the top brain and remarkable human that Gordon was...and yes, that includes Robt. E Lee, the only other Civil War General that comes close or equates to those adjectives.


The Mob's Greatest Hits Volume One
The Mob's Greatest Hits Volume One
Price: £2.00

3.0 out of 5 stars Research, okay. Light reading, so-so. Unique? Not really., 12 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well, if you have an interest in the depths that your basic crims can get to, this'll be okay....while I do find interest in criminal activities, it tends toward them getting their just rewards...in this book, they all do, but most of the stories are quite well known, and those that aren't are for tangential hoods for the most part....in essence, if organised crime is interesting to you, you'll probably include this in your reading, although with no illustrations, and an almost 'choose from the menu' repertoire of stories, it won't light any fire....


Memoir, Correspondence, And Miscellanies, From The Papers Of Thomas Jefferson, Volume 1
Memoir, Correspondence, And Miscellanies, From The Papers Of Thomas Jefferson, Volume 1
Price: £0.00

5.0 out of 5 stars How an early 18th century mind could encompass so much diversity is a wonder...., 12 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fascinating look into the mentality and deep breadth of Jefferson's world...the principal designer of the Constitution, signer and co-creator of the Declaration of Independence, and President of the United States. And yes, a slave holder, literally and figuratively....


Celestial Navigations Chapter 3
Celestial Navigations Chapter 3

5.0 out of 5 stars Geoffrey Lewis is a clever, hugely talented actor and writer...the words are his, the music belongs to two partners of his in t., 4 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I keep buying these simply because each one has surprise, delight, philosophy, and verbal theatre. I use selections to sign off my radio shows.


I Thought About You (A Tribute To Chet Baker)
I Thought About You (A Tribute To Chet Baker)

5.0 out of 5 stars What a lady! What a talent! And known all over the world as a wonderful gift from Brazil., 4 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Absolutely top shelf entertainment by an amazing looking and remarkable talent...a tribute to Chet baker that is memorable and, fortunately, repeatable. This will feature on my show on listentothecat....


The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millennium series Book 1)
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millennium series Book 1)
Price: £3.66

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read, and a great-ish movie!, 27 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I rarely read novels, but this is an exception....also simultaneously watching the film and comparing...even dialogue is remarkably close so far...overall, great entertainment both ways, and the bonus was, I'd never had gotten this in the first place if it hadn't been a freebie for previous purchases...worth whatever you pay!


The Works of Rene Descartes

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good Ol' Rene definitely had his own time machine...his thoughts are as contemporary as this morning's news...brilliant.

Wait! Criticize Plato?? You're kidding, or arrogant beyond belief! If you've wondered why his name is still around after he's been dust for centuries, then you read this---you'll understand what wisdom is.
