World War Z
World War Z
by Max Brooks
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.98

3.0 out of 5 stars Not convinced, 18 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: World War Z (Paperback)
To be honest I didn't like the book. I really made an effort to follow the story, but the reality is that it didn't catch my attention. The narrative is confusing. The story telling in a form of an interview to the several characters, simply didn't strike me as the right approach. There wasn't a hero to follow or a thread of a story with beginning and end. I don't know what's the hype with this book. I think this is going to be one of those cases that the movie is going to be much better.

4.0 out of 5 stars Statistics in a nutshell, 18 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've read this book with the intention of refreshing my memory on statistics. What I found was a refreshing book, easy to read and follow, with some compelling examples to keep you hooked to the book. The book addressed some of the most important concepts of statistics, giving you some insight on the reasoning behind them. In conclusion, I would recommend to anyone who wants explore on the surface the field of statistics, or anyone even considering pursuing this field. For the latter case, this can be considered a motivational book for statistics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excelent book for introducing C, 22 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The C Programming Language is well known book for learning C. Not much can I say, beside the repeated praises. The book is an excelent introdutory book, the authors guide you through the C language in a consistent manner, from the basics (e.g., loop control, function definition, etc) trhough more advanced subjects (pointer manipulation, structure definition, etc).
Throughout the book the authors take care of giving good advices in specific subjects, to prevent you from doing some well known mistakes in the future, which says much about the care the authors gave while writing an introductory book.

Full of good examples, examples that are simple of understanding in nature, but not simplified (stupified) to the extent of not giving any learning base.

Also, in general, the exercices are challenging and well thought.

So I would recommend this book anytime for anyone trying to learn C, and trying to learn it WELL and with a strong/good foundation base.
