Thank you, I've had it on DVD for quite a while. Just one of those forgotten shows the BBC put on is all. They did do a radio dramatisation for it a few years back as well that had Christopher Lee, Benedict Cumberbatch and James McAvoy in it.
it's on youtube
Still my favourite of his books. Is a shame the original BBC TV series hasn't really been shown much love since it aired.
Mate in two puzzles are easy - can't see how they'd find 100 headachingly hard ones...! The hard puzzles are those with no defined way to win or those where the win only comes after more than two moves (and the first one is almost never a check). Edit: Hmmm I browsed through the book and it looks like it comprises well designed puzzles from a renowned chess puzzle creator. All the puzzles were compiled from other sources so, it's 'that' kind of Kindle book. At least it's better than the trashy free chess books that pop up

Hardly a defence. He's describing what happened. Theres a lot of rewriting of history going on, and the ones doing it can't be trusted what they try to replace it with. Holland was attacked by both sides for his book about collapse of Greece and Rome and the rise of Islam. All he did was describe what happened. Ditto here. If you want to believe what others tell you - with probably less researchg than Holland did, thats your business. Reporting down the centuries can't be trusted not to deviate anyway. Now deviating more than ever
I thought that was just his Chaos Walking?
Like a lot of these style of books, the author tries to have it both ways - he'll point out all the ways that non-Christians follow teachings of Christ (Love everybody, if you are tempted by women by how they're dressed then that's a you problem, pay your damned taxes, etc) but fails to notice that actual Christian institutions fail to follow those same teachings. But hey, for 99p, it's certainly worth the read.
A defence of religion. Not that religion is worth defending.
'Hegemony or Survival' is also definitely worth a read
"The Fateful Triangle" his classic on Middle East colonialism is well worth a read too.
Very well worth reading if you haven't heard of him, a revolunonary. He usually talks about America but usually makes comments about British history which are worth following up.
Scrolling past I thought this was about Gnome Chomsky for a minute. The famous garden gnome sent into space. https://www.gamesradar.com/valve-is-launching-half-lifes-gnome-chompski-into-space-for-real-for-charity/
