Books I can’t wait to read: The Giles Milton Edition

Just two scant days before Christmas, the Washington Post informed me that historian Giles Milton has written an entire book full of surprising facts about famous people. His book, When Hitler Took Cocaine and Lenin Lost His Brain, appeals to me for obvious reasons.

From the article:

“Hitler, apparently, was high the whole time. Under the care of Theodor Morell, a ‘grossly obese quack doctor with acrid halitosis and appalling body odour,’ the deranged Fuehrer was almost always ‘pumped with as many as eighty different drugs, including testosterone, opiates, sedatives and laxatives.’”

Sadly, my Christmas shopping had already gone over budget by the time I read the article, and I no longer felt justified in tucking a little something for me into my Amazon shopping cart.

Soon, though. Very soon.
