    I finished these two a couple of months back, both I can very-much recommend.

    Not really the "full story of Brexit" - more the "full story of the EU Referendum". https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01I9AEIPU/

    This battle, or rather the death of Col. "H" Jones, is something I should have read up on years ago. No matter. The book is excellent, by one of my favourite military historians - plenty of maps and a few sketches for those like me who prefer pictures to words. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Battle-Goose-Green-Fought-Won-ebook/dp/B072PVJZ11/

    ETA Top of the Page as well .... do I get a prize? :bananafunk:

    No deal for you, I'm afraid.

    Has anyone read any of Peter May's books? I'm just reading the final one of the Lewis Trilogy and I've really enjoyed his writing.

    This is not hugely enjoyable

    The mind is not blown, it is far far away from a masterpiece

    However, it is also very clear that no political figure has yet to trouble its pages

    If you happen to be interested in the future, as opposed to living in hope, then this maybe the homework you have been seeking out

    I read it a few years ago and said I wouldn't read anything else by Taleb. He's got an attitude problem which he allows to creep in every so often.

    It was OK, but, as you say, not a masterpiece and mind similarly not blown.

    Working my way through this at the moment.

    Really good, and I thoroughly recommend it.
