4.0 out of 5 stars darkly witty, brightly acerbic, touchingly reflective, terrifyingly personal, 21 July 2014
Thought provoking, passionate, high velocity, darkly witty, brightly acerbic, touchingly reflective, terrifyingly personal, politicised, unapologetic and uncompromising. Laurie Penny's voice, passion and energy is captivating - her gonzo style and growing confidence places her firmly as a leading voice in political activism and feminism.

4.0 out of 5 stars Do your maths..., 11 May 2013
The book is a valuable all grain brewer book. It has a great variety of styles but a hell of a lot of errors, TBH some fatal and unforgivable errors which make me wonder how much proofing was done. The Champagne beer recipe tells me the beer would be 4.7% try closer to 9%! Gravities are all over the place leading you to fear your wort is seriously off until you run it through a recipe maker to realise you are right and the book is grossly wrong and obviously not proofed.

Use it as inspiration, utilise the brilliant malt and hops tables in the first chapters of the book but doubt every recipe and invest in a copy of BeerSmith

2.0 out of 5 stars For a New Starter not a Continuing Learner, 10 Jun. 2010
First thing is first, this is not a bad book. It does a lot of strong core introductions to a number of topics and was one of the first ASP.NET 4.0 books to print which means it has a mild refresh from previous versions and not a thorough review. It misses some key AJAX functionality and UI upgrades and focuses more about why ASP.NET 3.5 was better than ASP.NET 2 than why ASP.NET 4.0 is worth your time and investment.

Worth it as a through overview for a new learner of ASP.NET but not for a .NET 3.5 user looking to upgrade.

EDIT: Reviews downgraded as the new material, Dynamic Data for instance, is seriously brushed over.
