The Problems of Philosophy

by Bertrand Russell

An Honours degree in the English language or a very large and comprehensive dictionary would certainly be helpful for those who wish to fully understand what this learned gentleman has to say.
I had neither and have therefore missed most of his points-I assume.

I have left this at three stars as it seems almost to be undecipherable to a mortal man.

I have little doubt that a person who could understand it would give it five stars however.

ABC's of Science

by Charles Oliver

Very out of date and in parts almost metaphysical in character-bordering on the mystical.

It contains little-if any-useful data for the modern scientist or student.

The Fun of Getting Thin

by Samuel Blythe

Elita has said it all perfectly exactly as I would have said it-had I the ability to do so.

The Flying Saucers are Real

by Donald Keyhoe

A somewhat rambling account of a reporters attempt to discover an explanation of the mysterious UFO sightings during the first half of the 20th century.

This man is not a story teller, he is a news reporter and as such his ability to render this account in an entertaining way leaves much to be desired.

Whilst based in fact, I assume that this will only really grip the die-hard UFO curious.

His conclusions contain no earth shattering revelations.

I am pushed to award it three stars.
