Cam’s Written A Book!

It’s not about Napoleon though.

The book is called “The Three Illusions” and it looks at science and philosophy. It’s my guide for living with what I call “permanent peace” and the philosophy in it has been the basis of how I’ve lived my life for the last 20 or so years.

Thanks for the folks who have proof read it for me over the last six months and given me notes, including Chrissy, Tony Kynaston and Russell Buckley.

Feel free to read the introduction to the book and to  subscribe to the newsletter for updates.

The entire book is available from Amazon in ebook format.

For those of you without an iPad or iPhone or Kindle device, you can download the Kindle app for PC or Mac for free from Amazon’s site. I do plan to publish the book in paperback at some stage in the future.

    NOTE: Below has nothing to do with your book, but with the Napoleon Podcast.
    Have been listening to the Napoleon Podcast with interest. You mentioned in one of them that you enjoy playing chess and I thought you would be intrigued by the following pieces I found online.
    The first is from an actual game played at a Chess Tournament in Nuremberg, 1896 between the then World Chess Champion, Emanuel Lasker of Germany, and master Jackson Showalter of the U.S. In an article by Siegbert Tarrasch, at that time, one of the top five Chess masters in the world, Tarrasch compared the moves of the game with Napoleon’s strategy at the Battle of Austerlitz. It was originally published in the Berliner Lokalanzeiger, and paraphrased into English in the British Chess Magazine, Vol. 24, August 1904. The game went 54 moves.
    Here is the link to the British Chess Magazine: http://books.google.com/books?id=5ppJAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA306&lpg=PA306&dq=tarrasch+austerlitz&source=bl&ots=vHJoIlSVUa&sig=NoUw6YkU92EH_jInlTxq9aLU5ok&hl=en&sa=X&ei=O_z7TsW2C42A2AXcqthd&ved=0CB4Q6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=tarrasch%20austerlitz&f=false
    The article begins on page 306.
    The original German article was reprinted in the Wiener Schachzeitung, Vol. 7, Feb/Mar, 1904. The link is here: http://books.google.com/books?id=ehYKAAAAIAAJ&pg=PA93&lpg=PA93&dq=tarrasch+austerlitz&source=bl&ots=s-rc-tNX-L&sig=z0JIzuQiWouUOOf5sxHE-iHSNps&hl=en&sa=X&ei=7P77TvjRMaXW2AXvqZD-BQ&ved=0CCYQ6AEwAw#v=onepage&q=tarrasch%20austerlitz&f=false
    The article begins on page 93.
    The second is from a book entitled Chess strategetics illustrated: military art and science adapted to the chessboard, by Franklin Young, published in 1919. In the appendix of the book he reproduced the Battle of Waterloo in great detail. He identified individual squares, clusters of squares, ranks, and files with landmarks on the battlefield; and each piece or pawn with units in the opposing armies. One peculiarity of the game is that Black (French Army) had the first move. The game went 65 moves.

    The appendix begins on page 253.
