The Mind Club: Who Thinks, What Feels, and Why it Matters
The Mind Club: Who Thinks, What Feels, and Why it Matters

5.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting, well written., 2 Oct. 2016

A really interesting read. What does and what doesn't have a mind? How about the dead?

I won't spoil it any more for you...

Advertised as the best PL259 going, you can't really fault these at this price.

I have seen very slightly better ones, but there's no difference that makes any odds.

Very happy, and a long-term returning customer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but let's have some spare parts..., 2 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very nice compass, with a couple of weak points:

(1) It has no spare thumb screws for the pencil lead fastener. Kids inevitably fiddle and lose them, and spares don't appear to be available. Hint: an M3 nylok nut fixes this, but don't over-cook the tightening, as the fastener is only a plastic thread.

(2) The cheap plastic case, though obviously intended to act as long-term storage, is very weak and both I've bought have cracked very quickly, one before I opened the package from Amazon. Not a big deal, but avoidable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating., 2 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent and overdue text on what I think is the most beautiful and elegant interpretation of quantum mechanics.

Worth every penny, and even those with pretty rusty maths will soon get back into the swing of things, though this is not a very mathematical text.

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor Vision., 2 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The overall design and light filtering is very good, although the plastic clip at the back is an obvious future point of failure.

I give this only three stars because they are sold (and packaged with) a claim it has "optical quality" eye glasses, whereas in fact, there is a lot of distortion that makes seeing poor. The overall feel underwater is of being short-sighted, something I've not seen before, even in quite cheap goggles.

Disappointing, especially at this price.

Good quality, but too small for working in the rain, to be honest.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just about passable., 16 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First, you can find this exact-same design at lower prices in very many outlets.

Second, the swivel head relies solely on friction to stay in place. In no time at all, it starts losing this friction and irritatingly droops so that you can't really use it other than by getting the superglue bottle out.

For the price, it's passable, and the battery life is good. The lensing of the red light, though, is quite poor because there is not much directivity to it.

You might think, as I did, that this book might be a bit dry. Far from it; I couldn't put it down! A brilliant, lucid account of this fascinating man's life. Despite now being a couple of decades old, it reads in a very modern, accessible way.
