Thinking in Java (2nd Edition) (with CD ROM)
Thinking in Java (2nd Edition) (with CD ROM)
by Bruce Eckel
Edition: Paperback

2.0 out of 5 stars I have many years of experience of object oriented computer ..., 28 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have many years of experience of object oriented computer programming.
I didn't find this book practical for jobs most people will be doing.
The sample programs are downright uninspiring and there are too many explanations of
how certain procedures work that most of us simply do not need to know.
This book wont help you get a job.
It will only help you show off how in depth your knowledge of programming is to your friends at university.
Buy something else.


The Life of Birds (Repackaged) [DVD]
The Life of Birds (Repackaged) [DVD]
Dvd ~ Sir David Attenborough
Price: £8.00

5.0 out of 5 stars The best wildlife series there will ever be, 6 Jun. 2016
The best series Attenborough ever made. Life on Earth was like Darwin's theory of evolution in terms of its intellectual impact on society all over the world. But the Life of Birds is a sheer joy to watch with its fabulous photography and revelation upon revelation about
the behaviour and lifestyles of our feathered friends (many of whom are best described as feathered fiends too).
Wont ever be bettered but I suspect will seem less interesting to generations of people to come as their imaginations take flight on their
computer screens and in virtual reality helmets.


Wonders of the Universe [Blu-ray] [Region Free]
Wonders of the Universe [Blu-ray] [Region Free]
Dvd ~ Brian Cox
Price: £7.00

2.0 out of 5 stars watch carl sagan's cosmos instead - that is like poetry, 6 Jun. 2016
This series is disappointing because it is less interesting than carl sagan's cosmos of thirty years ago and
you would expect the tv people to have improved on cosmos by now. Also Brian Cox makes statements that simply have no
scientific evidence for them. He says for example that the universe gets cold and stays like that forever but we cant know this when there is still
10 times more mass than has been found to be accounted for -and that's just in our galaxy( or a theory explaining why it doesn't need to be be found),and we don't really know what mass is yet or else we'd be able to predict particle masses-the nobel prize wining physicist Richard Feynman said that he found this "worrying" i.e he thought modern physics was fundamentally flawed and Stephen hawking said the Higgs particle -which is supposed to explain mass-was "disappointing" .Before Cox makes such bold statements he should win himself a nobel prize first and prove his credentials. For me he is david Attenborough without charm or credibility. Take the pretty photography away from his programs and there isn't much left.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Big Short (Amazon Video)
Good as a documentary but poor as a film -fails to engage the emotions.
The film says at the end that immigrants were incorrectly blamed for the crash while making the most distasteful
character on wall street non white.

4.0 out of 5 stars really good book for aspiring egyptologists, 13 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A really good book-I have tried learning from others- this is the best. I will be visiting the ashmolean museum in oxford a lot more now to read all those inscriptions. Just the ticket.Only criticism is some symbols are a bit small on the printed page but otherwise cant criticise.

2.0 out of 5 stars Watch another bond film- this is dreadful, 12 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Spectre (Amazon Video)
Just not snappy enough to be a bond film. Humour doesn't work and action not very original and even plain tedious at times.

3.0 out of 5 stars okay but wouldn't watch it twice, 27 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Blue Jasmine (Amazon Video)
Excellent portrayal of a woman whose life is falling apart.
Wouldn't watch it again - fairly boring and repetitive dialogue.
I can see how some people find it humorous-characters are almost caracatures.

Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation

2.0 out of 5 stars One mission too many even for tom cruise, 2 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One mission too many.
This film lacks originality and humour and a good storyline too.
There is nothing wrong with storylines detatched from reality but this one
was contrived, awkward and hopefully heralds the end of the mission impossible movies.
Plain boring.
