A (ValuePack Only) - Pearson New International Edition

Review: I bought this book because I bought a different edition of the class textbook and the newer version came with this book... halfway through my class I realized how helpful it was so I found it on here for pretty cheap... and it WAS helpful and still is... it's a great way to study and get through any level of college anatomy Read more

40th Anniversary edition (Oxford Landmark Science)
40th Anniversary edition (Oxford Landmark Science)

Review: The starting is very interesting. But after a few chapters, the book becomes too complicated and it looks like a maze of things explained in too much detail that only a Scientist might find interesting. Gave up after reading a few chapters. I think this should be edited by someone because the facts are really innovative and contribute to the understanding of "life." Read more

Eating Animals
Eating Animals

Review: Early in Eating Meat, Foer shares an anecdote of his starving Jewish grandmother, fleeing the Nazis and offered pork by a kind peasant. She is dying of starvation but rejects the pork, explaining, "If nothing matters, there's nothing to save." While Foer loves his grandmother, the story-teller, the life-giver, and the lover of kosher beef and chicken, he uses her quote as a sort of epitaph throughout his book to pave the way for his conversion to vegetarianism, a conversion that separates him fr...

The Origin and Fate of the Universe - The Theory of Everything

Review: The book is brilliant!!! Steven Hawking is brilliant. I must admit that I had to read each page VERY slowly and tried to digest it; then reading a lot more of it again. It is above me. I tried to follow his thinking; and although the book was said to be written for the "common"man; it is definitely not an easy read. However, I appreciate the intelligent mind that wrote it and admire all the work done trying to figure out our universe. Even if I did not understand it completely, I loved readi... Read more

Dr. Dan Burisch Reveals the Truth About ETs - UFOs and MJ-12

Review: One star because it was easy to read. The story however was clearly made up and should be classified as a novel. I mean a Parole and Probation Officer moonlighting as a mocrobiologist so accomplished no one else could cure an alien and the almighty Federal Govt., in order to procure his services, had to work around his day job?

The Evidence for Evolution - The Greatest Show on Earth
The Evidence for Evolution - The Greatest Show on Earth

Review: What can you say but bravo to Dawkins for his clear and precise facts on evolution from the genetic evidence,DNA,fossils etc. This book goes in to the detective work of evolution unlike other books this tells you the facts and presents the evidence to back it up. Great book for anyone looking to get the strait facts on evolution. Read more

An Appetite for Wonder: The Making of a Scientist
An Appetite for Wonder: The Making of a Scientist

Review: Richard Dawkins is one of my personal heros. His understanding of science is outstanding, his ability to explain it is remarkable, and his ability, to make sense of complex and subtle topics puts him at the top of the list of science writers. He also can tell a good story in a down to earth way. It was fascinating to hear how he came to this point in "An Appetite for Wonder". Read more

Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup - Bad Blood
Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup - Bad Blood

Review: One of the best nonfiction books I've ever read. Carreyrou does a good job of explaining the science behind blood testing/assays in layman's terms. Parts of this book read like fiction because of how unbelievable the (true) story became. Read more

Explanations that Transform The World (Penguin Press Science)
Explanations that Transform The World (Penguin Press Science)

Review: David Deutsch fails to deliver a complete work to succeed his magnificent work, "The Fabric of Reality." I really enjoyed the first 121 pages or so, but when undetected, uncorrected errors creep in for no good reason, one wonders just how serious the author takes his own premise. As such, the remainder of the book became a chore to finish. A big disappointment to a promising start. Read more

My Quest for the Ultimate Nature of Reality - Our Mathematical Universe
My Quest for the Ultimate Nature of Reality - Our Mathematical Universe

Review: Although the four levels of infinities can nicely fit in our local universe ... even per person/instant, and thus make our eigenvector of constants just one of infinitelt many ... it somehow forgets to ponder that, of these infinities within infinities, there are likely to be constructs which utilize their universe in total, as a quantum-like computational system. Hard to imagine that neither Tegmark nor Hawking thought this through. Read more
