The best way to get free publicity for a book is to say something wildly unlikely about Hitler in it. The latest is Hitler's plans for cricket. Yes, cricket. He wanted a few changes though. He apparently found pads to be “unmanly and un-German”.

The book is called Unreliable Sources. Quite.

I didn't go for the obvious one. But be fair, it fits with his apparent imbecelic readiness to get rid of pads. We aren't told if this applied to the box as well.

I was hearing also that he was into repairs of electric shavers. Although, come to think of it, how did he lay his hands on an electric shaver? Strange that.
