From Blood Diamonds to Immortality? A Chiiling tale of Stolen Time (1)
From Blood Diamonds to Immortality? A Chiiling tale of Stolen Time (1)
Price: $1.00

3.0 out of 5 stars Stolen Time, October 27, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Al Noteman tells a rollicking and intriguing tale in his first novel, appropriately entitled Stolen Time. He develops his characters skillfully and plausibly and likewise brings together the elements of a diverse and complex plot adroitly and compellingly and I found that I picked the book up with anticipation each time I resumed reading and was absorbed until the end.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brewing reference, March 29, 2009

John Palmer's How to Brew is a must for any aspiring home brewer. If you plan to buy just one book, this should be it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bang, January 14, 2005
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
'Bang' is a very exciting book, and a aunique one too I believe, because it brings within the grasp of Mr and Mrs 'average' reader an understanding of many hitherto esoteric concepts relating to the beginnings of the universe, the nature of matter, and many others besides, and explores these issues, often in a subtly humerous manner, without burdening the reader with a plethora of mathematical formulae and overly pedantic retoric.

It goes places that even wonderfully erudite writers like Bill Bryson do not as far as the history and future of our universe are concerned, because many other works are far more general and cursory, and that in itself makes the book of Siegfried Eckleben vital reading for all those who yearn to better understand 'life, the universe, and everything.' My opinion? Read it!
