5.0 out of 5 stars Neat stuff, April 2, 2013

Water based, so requires two coats; but the finish is smooth and lusterous. Couldn't ask for more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great marketing for BASF, April 2, 2013

This review is from: How To Design a Chair (Hardcover)
Some history with a decidedly modern and commercial slant. Have just designed a chair of my own (wood and much lower tech), so found the second half especially interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars No surprises, April 2, 2013

Time honored modeller's classic - 16 words are too many and a silly requirement. Would you really like me to say more? I doubt it.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best - Ever., July 13, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is, quite simply, the best book that addresses the fundamental ontological question of "Why is there Something rather than Nothing?" that I have ever read. The author has a good grasp of the relevant science as well as of the philosophic arguments. He interviews an impressive collection of contemporary thinkers, and his writing style is both clear and deeply moving. Toward the end, he presents his own carefully considered approach to the problem. This is clearly the product of an intellectual labor of love. Bravo, Jim Holt.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Complete Anthology, January 3, 2007
Nicely bound and printed with first edition illustrations. For perspective, I also recommend "Joel Chandler Harris: A Biography and Critical Study" by R. Bruce Bickley, Jr. (see my review).

5.0 out of 5 stars A scholarly perspective, January 3, 2007
I purchased this book along with "The Complete Tales of Uncle Remus." Together, they provide a reasonably complete basis for a thorough appreciation of the seminal work of this influential southern reconstruction folklorist, who obviously informed Twain's Jim in "Huckleberry Finn" and, in my opinion, is far too easily dismissed, today, as being politically incorrect.
