By W. M. Telford

The content material of this e-book is past reproach - sturdy, specific sturdy technical information. that is why i purchased it. it is a bit past me as a geologist yet I will not outgrow its content material and that matches me fantastic. i used to be upset via the e-book caliber although. I knew it used to be a paperback, however it turns out a very flimsy paperboard, and for a e-book of this measurement and density, it quite wishes a hardback or a stiffer, harder paperback hide. this can be a operating booklet which would turn out in a box camp, and for US$70, i'd savour a hardback. extra importantly, the textual content caliber is negative, as are the pictures. I in comparison it to the unique (which our workplace has a replica of) and it sort of feels they've got scanned the unique book and digitally revealed it. The textual content has an demanding blur, similar to photocopies, and the pictures (never the simplest within the unique) are furthur degraded and contrasty.
A for content material, C for attempt. B total.

Eine weitere Zersplitterung in einzelstaatliche Regelungen ist sowohl für die Technologie als auch gegenüber den innovativen Unternehmen kontraproduktiv. 3. Transport und Lagerung von ANE müssen für langfristige Zeiträume und einheitlich geregelt werden unter Berücksichtigung aller notwendigen sicherheitsrelevanten Randbedingungen zum Schutz von Gesundheit und Umwelt. Unangemessene Restriktionen durch politische Sachzwänge oder falschen Lobbyismus sollten dabei allerdings unterbleiben. Da in der europäischen Gesetzgebung nach den Unglücken von Enschede – auch wenn es sich nicht um Sprengstoff oder Ammoniumnitrat, sondern um Pyrotechnik handelte – und Toulouse schärfere Regelungen für die Lagerung und den Umgang mit ANE und technischem Ammoniumnitrat zu erwarten sind, werden entsprechende nationale Regelungen, die in diese Richtung zielen, sehr genau beobachtet.
