Kepler: Tortured Genius: The Story of a Groundbreaking Astronomer
Kepler: Tortured Genius: The Story of a Groundbreaking Astronomer
by David Love
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Informative and entertaining: for scientists and the lay reader alike, 17 Sept. 2014
David Love's 'Kepler: tortured genius' is a lucid text and the scientific explanations clear. But, as the title hints, it is the historical and personal details surrounding Kepler's story that lend the book its colour. The prose navigates through Kepler's life and all the obstacles facing this great man as he attempted to unlock the secrets of the universe, whilst the authorial voice provides both empathetic and contextualising comments. In this book, Kepler is placed firmly amongst his - often better known – contemporaries and the reader may be left wondering why such an important figure has been somewhat marginalised in the annals of history. No prior understanding of astronomy is required to enjoy the benefits of this book. Equally, those already initiated in the science will congratulate the writer for his clear and compelling undertaking, and for bringing Kepler back in to our consciousness. In addition, Love outlines for the lay reader a brief history of astronomy before Kepler, and of scientific developments since, making this book a complete read.

Love's text is both informative and entertaining and I would recommend this book to those interested in astronomy, history and biography alike.

Andrew James 850 watt Electric Whole Fruit Juicer with juice collecting jug and cleaning brush

4.0 out of 5 stars Great juice, great value, 9 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This juicer is excellent - easy to use, take apart, clean and reassemble. It's efficient, compact, secure and makes great juice! Whilst it may not get as much out of your veg and fruit as other, more expensive models, it is still an excellent product. Plus it comes with a care manual, tips and recipe suggestions. I am extremely satisfied.


Superfreakonomics: Global Cooling, Patriotic Prostitutes and Why Suicide Bombers Should Buy Life Insurance
Superfreakonomics: Global Cooling, Patriotic Prostitutes and Why Suicide Bombers Should Buy Life Insurance
by Steven D. Levitt
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Superfreaky economics!!, 20 Oct. 2009
I think the most impressive thing about this book is the authors' attitude. They cover an amazing range of subjects but are always challenging and original in the way they do it. You could read the whole thing as a plea for no-nonsense truth-telling: seeing the world as it really is. Although, as they show, that is not always very obvious... Which is why we need them in the first place!

Luckily, they are also incredibly engaging and entertaining in the way they do it. Superfreakonomics reads even better than Freakonomics - it really is a page-turning detective story.

Some of the other reviewers here have picked up on the instant controversy that this book has caused. Have they actually read the book themselves? Levitt and Dubner aren't 'wrong' about the science (e.g. are not denying climate change) or distorting other people's views, they just scrutinise these subjects in ways that make some people uncomfortable, and make some very superfreaky suggestions. Check out Tim Harford's review in the FT for a more balanced assessment.

Or better still, read the book! It's extraordinarily good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value!, 3 Aug. 2009
Hi! This book is a little gem - really friendly, beautifully done, informative without being overwhelming, and a bargain! It's also really up to date - it includes Barack and Malia, as well as other 'celebrity' names.
