5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Progressive Rock song à la Nightwish, November 23, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Unfettered (MP3 Music)
Excellent Progressive Rock song à la Nightwish and Without Face. The song hits you at once as very powerful, relying on a strong combination of electric guitars and male and female vocals. Good song that I really come to enjoy after a few listens. Highly recommended. On a side note the author is giving all the proceeds of this song to cancer research.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for anyone who wants a spirit lift, November 23, 2013
This review is from: Hornbills Daughter (Paperback)
Let me start by saying that my 14 year old daughter, who is only into fantasy, read the whole book in just one sitting. Her comment was that the book was amazing, and truly is. This autobiographical book relates the story of a little girl that grew up in the jungles of Malaysia and by means of persistence and hard work achieved education and a better life. There are many books out there with this theme, but what makes this book different is how well the author connects the reader with her story. This book also provides a glimpse to the history of Malaysia, paganism and its influence in Sarawak, poverty and lack of opportunities in the 50's and 60's, and other topics that fully complement this really compelling story. Overall Angela Miller has put together a really great story that can be enjoyed by everyone. You can forgive the author for a few grammatical errors throughout the book because the story more than makes up for it. This is a highly recommended book for anyone who wants to have a spirit lift. Enjoy!

3.0 out of 5 stars one thumb up, one thumb down, June 7, 2001
This review is from: Volcanoes (Paperback)
I found that this book has some positives and negatives: Positives: 1. the authors have compiled a wealth of information about volcanoes all over the world: Mt. St. Helens catastrophe, planes flying over eruption clouds, eruption accounts from Krakatua, etc, etc. 2. For a geologist like me, when we study about volcanoes, we tend to forget the human factor, not only hazards, but also how it affects agriculture, tourism, etc. Which I think this book pinpoints very well. Negatives: 1. The book doesn't flow: lots of information, but in my opinion disorganized. Except for the chapter about Mt. St. Helens, I didn't understand the point that the authors were trying to make (or probably there was no point, and it was just a plain description). 2. Any time you touch a scientific subject, you are immersed in having to use scientific terms. Since this book is trying to reach a general audience (I think), it will benefit a lot by having a glossary. 3. Some chapters are really weak, like the one that talks about plate tectonics. Plate tectonics is the driving force of volcanoes (mostly) and should have more emphasis on the book, and be explained in more simple terms. 4. The decimal metric system is used throughout the book. This is good when you are writing a paper to publish on a specialized journal, but not for a book aimed at general audiences. The equivalence in the English system should probably go in parentheses.

5.0 out of 5 stars good compilation for starters; buena compilacion, June 6, 2001
This review is from: Chau Soda (Audio CD)
A great compilation of one of the best groups from LatinAmerica. For those like me who are not into the latter Soda Stereo music (Ciudad de la Furia CD), but will want the best off those CD's. And also for those of you (like me) who like the classic Soda (Persiana Americana and so on), you get the best of both worlds/ Buena compilacion de este gran grupo argentino. Tiene lo mejor de su primera epoca (Persiana Americana. de Musica Ligera, etc.) que es lo mas me gusta a mi. Pero tambien tiene lo mejor de su epoca posterior (Ciudad de la Furia, etc.)

I own the Powerprep for the GRE (it was helpful to me), but I was trying to find something about the TOEFL, and then when I started looking at the reviews, most of them where about the GRE, so watch out!

4.0 out of 5 stars good C++ book, November 7, 2000
This review is from: Standard C++ Bible (Paperback)
I liked having the compiler and the source code together. When opening the examples from the book in the compiler, they are not listed as "exercise 6.1" and "excercise 6.2", but instead as "example 6.1: Pointers to Pointers", and so on, which makes it easier to look whatever you're looking for. "C++ the complete reference", by Schildt is presented in a similar way, and I think is a little bit more complete than "standard C++ bible", but you have to download the source code from its website, and then edit it to have it running (all the source code from each chapter is cramped into one file). If you don't mind that, then "C++ the complete reference" might be a better choice, but not by much though.
