    The item is fine, however, Amazon's shipping procedures are very slow, and inadequet. I paid for an upgrade in shipping, and the item was two days late, with no explanation from Amazon.I will remember this the next time I need to order.

    The good?
    5-0 out of 5 stars Perhaps the best book on reef care
    An exceptional book on the subject. It is comprehensive but I would not say not complete as no book on this subject could be. Still I believe this book to be the best work compiled in book form. Described by many as "the Bible" on the subject it indeed may be but it is not dogmatic as it offers several options and methods and leaves it for the aquarist to use.

    5-0 out of 5 stars An antidote to muddled thinking
    Ortega y Gasset brings philosophical rigor and logic to the consideration of hunting.In a powerful counterblast to muddled, emotion-driven, anthropomorphic, confused, sentimental arguments - one can't call them "ideas" - OyG clarifies the core questions and quandaries, and gives a sound philosophical foundation for the defense - indeed, the celebration -of the hunting imperative that 21st century urban man sublimates or ignores at his environmental and spiritual peril.

    5-0 out of 5 stars An absolute necessity for the animal rights debate.
    Ortega delves into the art of hunting, and gets to the root of the matter. Both the nature of human, and of animal are examined. Be forewarned, this is heavy duty philosophy, not just an article on where to hang a tree stand. Ortega wrote in the early twentieth century, and so some will think his ideas are dated, and that we know much better now. This gives rise to the thought that humans change rapidly. Ortega's work stands because we do not substantially change over just a hundred or even a thousand years. This is why Shakespear and the Bible are still applicable, and why Ortega's Meditations On Hunting still stands.The act of hunting has changed over the centuries, to evolve into sport. Ortega delves into this also, and his answer to our inner questions, and the current questions of animal rightists is so clear and distilled that it shines in one's brain. It is rare to find one so clear in academia. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect
    The perfect book for the novice marine aquarium enthusiast.Step by step it tells you how to set up a number of salt water aquariums both small and large with alternative methods of filtration.It also covers which fish do well for the beginner and how they get along with each other.The writing is clear and concise, and when I finished reading and got started with my first tank, there wasn't a single thing I encountered that wasn't covered in the book.Great start for your first tank.Pick this one up.

    4-0 out of 5 stars An ok starter...
    This book was an ok starter book, but does not delve into great diagnostic detail. I had to purchase another booh for that.

    4-0 out of 5 stars great for begginers
    I think this book is great for beginners. It really teaches you the basics of the hobby. How to enjoy your aqaurium and stick with it, because it is a hobby that many have lost interest and given up on, due to impatience.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Trapshooter's Bible - Precision Trapshooting
    Trapshooter's Bible - Precision Shooting, the companion piece to James Russell's Trapshooting Secrets. Another must read work for trap shooters of all levels of ability. The practical information, illustrations and practice tips in this volume will certainly raise your shooting ability to the next level.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Buyer beware.
    While this book offers many sound trapshooting points, they come amidst a sea of personal opinion, Christian evangelizing, and the marketing of other books. This book is self-published and begs for professional editing. There are countless glowing spelling and grammatical errors. If one were to eliminate the redundancy and material not related to the subject, this rather expensive book would barely reach 100 pages. And, as if the contents were all his original ideas, he offers no bibliographic reference for any of the opinions, facts, or conclusions, even though many are contrary to conventional trapshooting wisdom and instruction. While Russell is quick to point out that the book is only useful if kept constantly on hand during practice and competition, he also sells it as an e-book that cannot be printed. All things considered, I have to seriously question the accuracy of the material and the validity of Mr. Russell's opinions.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Gun Digest is Back and better than ever for 2007
    I was pleasently surprised when I opened my 2007 edition.It abounds with interesting articles.Tops and lead in this issue was an excellent piece from John Malloy, renowned author of many top notch articles on guns and gun history.He takes you through 60 years of the automatic pistol in the US and neatly ties it into the 60 years of the Gun Digest.I found this year's other articles both very intersting and informative.Those that downplay this years edition either haven't read it, or don't appreciate it. I've given it 5 stars to counteract the insultingly low ratings.I have collected the entire gun digest library starting with the 1944 edition and have read through many volumes of the library.I believe that this qualifies me to speak about the entire body of work that is Gun Digest. I can honestly say that this issue is certainly not one of the worst and would be ranked as a refreshing change from those of the recent past.Get it for the articles, and enjoy it until next year.Ken Ramage and the GD team have made an effort.That says alot in this day and age and I believe that you won't be disappointed - do yourself a favor though, and this goes for any book.Don't pay anywhere close to retail price.You should be able to get this one brand new for around 15 bucks - delivered as of the date of this review!

    1-0 out of 5 stars How Low Can You Go
    Can't wait till the2008 issue comes out to see how much further you can go to destroy what used to be an excellent publication. No articles, canned content, and errors abound in this publication. Was going to give it 2 stars so I have the ability to downgrade if next years digest gets any worse.

    1-0 out of 5 stars It just keeps going down hill
    Gun Digest has been going down hill every year since it sold out to new owners back around 1999. This year is a new low. Very few articles and many errors in the canned specs. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Military and Police Sniper by Mike Lau
    This is an outstanding book jammed with information for both the novice and master shooter alike. I constantly review sections though I read the book a few years ago.Subjects include what makes a rifle a precision weapon, ammunition, optics, position, the difference between military and police sniping, etc. It's definately a keeper.

    If you are a person who has an interest in Military and Police sniping you must read this book. Together with the book written by Major John L. Plaster 'The Ultimate Sniper'this book offers a good insight in how things work and how things are done to function as a sniper. A lot of practical tips are added in this book. As you go through the book you understand how much the author 'Michael Lau' knows about the subject and how much experience he has in the subject. ... Read more

    You know the saying: Give a man (or woman) a fish, and you give him dinner; teach a man (or woman) to fish and he'll have dinner for the rest of his life. The always entertaining and instructional "... for Dummies" series reeled in witty outdoors writer Peter Kaminsky to keep the rest of us fed--as in food for the table and food for thought--with this step-by-step guide to pretty much every right and obtuse angle on angling. As with all the books in the series, Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars Only A Good Book for the Absolute Beginner--not a reference
    While I am usually quite pleased with the "for dummies" type of books because they are truly a "reference for the rest of us," this one does not deliver on the latter promise. While it is fun to readand easy to understand, I learned nothing from reading this and I am only a casual fisherman at best, going on what my dad taught me over 25 years ago when I was just a boy. I think if you had no idea what you were doing at all this might be a good "get started" book, but if you know what a rod and reel are and how they work, how hooks and lines are gauged and how to hook your bait, I don't think this book will teach you very much. It also introduces a lot of new things to the beginner (such as telling you what the basic types of lures are), but tells you nothing in terms of tips for catching fish any better with these items.
    3-0 out of 5 stars the basics
    This book will teach you the basics and answer some questions that you might have had about fishing. This is a good reference book that goes into enough detail to get anyone started fishing.

    I have read several books on the mental game and this one by far is the best.Lanny does an outstanding job of explaning how performance is generated.In his view performance is a function of three mental processes, the Conscious Mind, the Subconscious Mind, and the Self Image.He shows a model on the relationships of the three and provides outstanding principles that support his view.

    This is a must have for anyone not just the competive athlete but anyone wanting to improve their life.I have used the techniques in this book for competition and performance with my singing.It has helped with my home life by changing my attitude towards my kids and husband.And helped me with job interviews by helping me learn how to change my self image so it is "like me" to interview well.I recommend this book to everyone I know!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Inspiring, detailed, practical
    One can appreciated the authors' long experience with marine aquaria who elegantly and with simple language explained larger biological concepts yet provide detailed instructions on how do to what and why. Very inspiring are the suggested biotopes that include among others "seagrass aquarium", "reef gorge aquarium", "pizza anemone aquarium", "rubble zone aquarium" as well as the standard reef tank. These are refreshing ideas that are needed with the current predominance of grocery store shelf-like stocked, overcrowded best-of-the-month SPS tanks. Also contains a comprehensive guide about most creatures possible in a reef tank and essentially makes e.g. Sprung's "Quick" guides unnecessary in one's library.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Think out of the box
    You won't have to go over the ammonia cycle again here, though there is enough info to get you started. The title is a great indication of what to expect. This book is about thinking out of the box in aquarium keeping and planning them correctly.

    4-0 out of 5 stars They aren't 'poles' anymore
    Regardless of whether you don't know the difference between a fly rod and a cane pole, or whether you not only know the differences but you've made your spouse learn about them, there's a place on your book shelf for Casting A Spell. George Black's investigative trail took him all over the country on a merry chase after the fly fishing equivalent of the Holy Grail: the perfect bamboo fly rod. Is there a piscatorial equivalent to the Stradivarius? George is convinced the best were from the hands of Eustis William Edwards, and he goes on to show the reader that the excellence that began in the mid 1800's flourished under the stewardship of makers like Billy Edwards as the new century began. Fly fishing in America certainly didn't start with A River Runs Through It and today the bamboo fly rod is alive and well as the new generations of rod crafters strive to create the next Strad. There are good reasons why the bamboo rod has enjoyed a renaissance in recent decades and when you've finished this book you'll understand both the craftsmen and their customers a bit better. This is a good read from an investigative writer with a proven track record in this area.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Casting a Spell
    I myself am a maker of bamboo rods, so I may be somewhat prejudiced, but Casting a Spell cast a spell over me.Black has caught the spirit of our craft in his telling of the story of the development of the fine bamboo fly rod and the people involved in making them from the late 19th century until the present.He begins at the beginning-- that is, with H. L. Leonard and the group of marvelous rod makers who worked with him in the late 19th century.This core group of rod makers served as the wellspring of all bamboo rod making in the United States.Eustace Edwards, Fred Thomas, Edward Payne and the Hawes Brothers, and of course, Hiram Leonard himself.-- though each of them had distinct personalities, they all had one thing held in common; a drive for perfection.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Lots of pictures... but what is this fish?
    I bought this book to help me identify fish. Have it worked so far? No.
    2-0 out of 5 stars Impressive Picture book; useless otherwise
    This book has changed a lot since the first edition. Mostly, it has removed information and added pictures. LOTS of pictures. It is more of a coffee-table book than any kind of aquarium guide. But even the pictures are of uneven quality. I was shocked that the only picture included for a couple of fairly common fish were of dead, poorly-preserved specimens. Yikes!
    3-0 out of 5 stars An Atlas and Little Else
    "ATLAS" is defined: A volume of tables, charts, or plates that systematically illustrates a particular subject: an anatomical atlas. That's what this book is and nothing else. It has both a scientific name index and a somewhat handy Popular Names index and usually several plates (pictures) of each species. This book can be used for two purposes. If you have the name of the fish, you can find pictures of the species from the indexes. One can also puruse the many pages of pictures and find something that interests them and then go to another book for detailed information. That's about it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Foundation for the Novice Instructor
    I will concede Mr. Wolters critics that this book does emphasize firm discipline.However I do not see this as a bad thing.After all anyone who owns a dog, irregardless if they hunt, take it in public, or just keep it around the house wants a disciplined dog that they can control.It does not teach excessive cruel punishment, just enough to let the dog know they were in the wrong.It actually emphasizes lack of attention and apathy more for initial and minor corrections.This book does counter the stern discipline by emphasizing the need to give affection after the rebuke.When it is said that the book uses old ways and techniques, remember that this book was originally written in 1961.But by no means is it outdated.As far as training it provides a solid foundation of techniques and important commands.What this book does not specify is timeframes on when to teach what.This is because every dog is different.It approaches the timeframe issue by applying the idea that when one thing is learned, move on to the next, but continue to reinforce all the previous trainings.The important thing to consider when looking at this as well as any other book is that time is the critical factor.Continuous daily training from an early age provides a system with which to grow.This book establishes that framework.With this system, you can train your dog to do anything.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great book
    I used this method 11 years ago to train my Golden to hunt. He has performed wonderfully and has hunted with me and loved going afield all these years. Arthritis has limited his ability, but he still loves to go. I am picking up a Llewellin pup in a few weeks and plan on using Wolter's methods once again. I highly recommend this to any novice hunting dog owner.

    1-0 out of 5 stars A huge disapointment
    This was a waste of money, I bought Wolters Gun Dog afterwards and it made this video look even worse.

    nice book, but i would like to see more pictures of the different species!! also some maps to locate some places would be great...I live in argentina and the 3 places chosen are great, although you must be a millionaire to fish rio grande!! Fortunately we still have a lot of places here to fish for free.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Lake Detective... He Can't Be Stumped!A great GLer
    This is that guy from AM1500 KSTP... Garage Logic, with Joe Soucheray.He goes by "The Lake Detective", and all he does is lakes, I guess.He's found a great niche in MN, land of 10,000 of 'em.Being a lakeshore owner, I've already used some of his techniques to keep my shore in great shape.The beauty of a lot of his approaches is that the solutions mostly seem pretty low-tech and inexpensive.But that's a good thing.I didn't have to rent expensive equipment to get my shore cleared, and the results have been great.Read more
