1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 12 Oct. 2009
This review is from: Bad Science (Paperback)
Was disappointed with the book "Bad science". Perhaps the title is misleading for I expected a review of serious scientific experiments and got instead a review of subjects such as homeopathy. Furthermore, I found the analysis generally superficial.

Marie Antoinette
Marie Antoinette
by Lady Antonia Fraser
Edition: Paperback
Price: £14.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A true masterpiece!, 28 Aug. 2009
This review is from: Marie Antoinette (Paperback)
Marie Antoinette by Antonia Fraser is a true masterpiece. Ms. Fraser brings Marie Antoinette back to life in this comprehensive and thorough book. This is not an analytic or academic account of the life of Marie Antoinette. It does not, for instance, discuss the causes of the French revolution in depth. Yet, it is difficult not to feel that one is a direct observer of history in reading this book. It is like watching a film of the life of Marie Antoinette, complete with insights as to how she must have felt and what she must have thought in different points of her life. It is difficult to overstate how much I enjoyed this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars An inspiring view of the possibilities of multilateral action, 8 May 2009
This book is a masterpiece. Samantha Power brings back to life this titan of humanitarian affairs. It casts a new light on the complexities of humanitarian assistance in a world torn by political conflicts and indifference to human suffering. It offers recognition to one of the most successful international staff members of our times.

5.0 out of 5 stars A persuasive argument for the importance of deliberate practice, 8 May 2009
The author offers a persuasive argument to explain superior performance beyond the realm of divine intervention and natural talent. His conclusions will no doubt generate controversy for years to come. A must read for all those interested in understanding how persons achieve superior performance.
