The Doctor,The Eye Doctor and Me: Analogies and Parallels Between The World of Doctor Who and the Syrian Conflict
The Doctor,The Eye Doctor and Me: Analogies and Parallels Between The World of Doctor Who and the Syrian Conflict
Price: $0.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Truly one of the more interesting things I've read lately., September 3, 2014
I found this particular book to be very interesting. It is cleverly written and manages to weave together several disparate elements quite deftly: the author's clearly dire circumstances, the sad and brutal story of the collapse of Syrian civilization, and an abiding love for the entire Dr. Who canon. If you don't like or don't get Dr. Who (some people don't - it can be an acquired taste) - you won't get the book. But I think most people would learn something from reading it. And its clear that Mr. Dandachi is an interesting guy with stories to tell. I wish him the best of luck.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely excellent book, February 24, 2014
This work should be considered the canonical reference for CBRN sampling and evidence collection. It is very useful, informative, and read-able. The author has a well-established reputation in this area. It is very thorough and comprehensive

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Overview, August 28, 2013
This book, published by the same publishers that printed my book on CBRN and Hazmat, is an excellent technical overview of CBRN protection. This is a wide and diverse topic, and one in which there are many strong opinions. I found the book to be a good reference. However, the diverse nature of the topic means that, in any work of reasonable size, there are practical limits to how deeply each sub-topic can be addressed. Overall, a good reference and I have already made use of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A splendid book, December 18, 2012
Dr. Barnett's book is an excellent history of "mother's ruin" and he manages to effectively describe not just the history of the beverage but also the various contexts in which gin has been of note throughout history. I also think this book will be important in the overall history of "moral panics" as the various gin panics share some commonalities with other moral panics throughout history. But besides the intellectual importance of the book, it is a pleasure to read. The prose is pleasantly high-brow without being smarmy or boffin-ish. I feel smarter for having read it.
