1.0 out of 5 stars Buyer beware, November 23, 2008
This unit was able to make nice coffees while it worked but after 7 months it started to die. It began passing coffee only sometimes and now, it makes all the right noises but no coffee is able to drip out. Not one drop, no matter what i do.

I will go on a crusade to inform the world about how worthless this product is. Imagine spending hundreds of dollars on a coffee maker that can't even survive 8 months. Cuisinart, you have not heard the last of me!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better, September 22, 2006
I'm surprised no one has a comment about this volume. As good as the first one was, this second follow up is even better. The format has not changed but the complex computer generated illustrations are out of this world.

5.0 out of 5 stars the best so far...., March 20, 2006
This review is from: Sushi: A Pocket Guide (Paperback)
Why is it so hard to find a good sushi book? I first came across this gem in a novelty shop and to my surprise, fell in love. This book is a graphic designers dream and will apeal such people as much as to raw fish eaters. This pocket guide is a museum piece and a must for any book collector. I was a bit put-off by its tiny size but some would argue it adds to its charm.

5.0 out of 5 stars From high up, February 14, 2006
Much of the photos in this book are taken from fairly high up, helicopter or aircraft. Composition is better than anything in the genre. Medium format Pentax 645 ensures a high level of detail. Printing quality is among the best i've seen. This is not just another book on the beauty of Alaskan wilderness. Interesting text for those with little background on salmon and their rivers.

A masterpiece!

5.0 out of 5 stars A new standard, August 3, 2005
The Atlas of Pacific Salmon is what all universities and government agencies needed 20 years ago. I dare say, it was almost worth the wait. This is a splensid compilation of data and images. The map work in this volume deserves much praise. The content covers biogeography, biology, genetics, threats, status etc....

Should sell for over $150

Not only is the photography fantastic but this book contains a lot of good information for those seeking an Alaska fishing adventure. The best of its type by far!

1.0 out of 5 stars Me too!, February 1, 2005
This review is from: A Passion for Caviar (Hardcover)
M. Kamhill! I too was fooled. This tiny book should sell for $1.99. All other caviar books are available for dirt cheap and offer more than this book. Overpriced indeed!

2.0 out of 5 stars Far from great, September 29, 2004
This book has some of the worst fish illustrations i have ever seen. Text is far too brief. This volume tries to cover too much and does not cover anything well....

5.0 out of 5 stars Best yet!, December 22, 2003
This book not only covers the basics but goes into some very elaborate set ups for doing advanced close-up work. Great printing quality also helps this volume be the number one reference in this field.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very informative, November 29, 2003
This review is from: Leica Lens Compendium (Hardcover)
Frankly, you do not even need to own a Leica to appreciate this book. All the fundamentals of optics and lens design are explained in detail. Any serious photographer should read this book. They will understand the limitations of their non-Leica systems and be in an informative position to decide if they need the ultimate picture recording potential of Leica lenses. Until now, I was using a Nikon F4 with the 17-35 2.8 ED. The author has informed me that he tried the lens, along with the Zeiss (Contax) 17-35 2.8 and neither approach the capabilities of similar leica zooms. Is he crazy? Read this volume and you will understand why no system can match the build, optics and design of Leica. Most important, you will see that the way most lens tests are done in today's photo magazines are not worth much at all.
Keep in mind, this is not a stunning picture book. Color photos are kept to an extreme minimum and are only used to make some point about optical capabilities of certain lenses. This book will no doubt serve as the ultimate leica lens buyer's guide. But remember, it is much more than that and Puts is one of the few people who can articulate lens performance into a fun and informative read.
A soft cover version would be nice for those who can't afford the hard cover volume.
