    Luis's books

    Buenas noches y saludos cordiales: José María García. Historia de un periodista irrepetible.
    really liked it
    Un libro que repasa la historia de la radio española entre 1972 y 2002, a través de la figura de un periodista tan polémica como irrepetible. Imprescindible para materias como derechos de la personalidad o historia de la radio.
    Las pseudociencias ¡vaya timo!
    it was amazing
    Recopilación de escritos en torno a los conceptos de ciencia, pseudociencias y sus debates derivados. Altamente recomendable aunque bastante denso en algunos pasajes.
    Killing Lincoln: The Shocking Assassination that Changed America Forever
    really liked it
    Un relato apasionante del final de la guerra de secesión y de los últimos días de la vida de Abraham Lincoln.
    Betrayal: The Crisis in the Catholic Church
    really liked it
    Gran resumen de un trabajo de investigación periodística sobre un tema tan espinoso como el de la pederastia en el seno del clero católico.
    El 18 Brumario de Luis Bonaparte
    really liked it
    Ameno relato sobre el ascenso al poder imperial de Luis Napoleón Bonaparte (Napoleón III).

    One night in Bangkok 2007-08-28

    Bangkok, Oriental setting
    And the city don't know that the city is getting
    The creme de la creme of the chess world in a
    Show with everything but Yul Brynner

    Time flies -- doesn't seem a minute
    Since the Tirolean spa had the chess boys in it
    All change -- don't you know that when you
    Play at this level there's no ordinary venue

    It's Iceland -- or the Philippines -- or Hastings -- or --
    or this place!

    One night in Bangkok and the world's your oyster
    The bars are temples but the pearls ain't free
    You'll find a god in every golden cloister
    And if you're lucky then the god's a she
    I can feel an angel sliding up to me

    One town's very like another
    When your head's down over your pieces, brother

    It's a drag, it's a bore, it's really such a pity
    To be looking at the board, not looking at the city

    Whaddya mean? Ya seen one crowded, polluted, stinking town --

    Tea, girls, warm, sweet
    Some are set up in the Somerset Maugham suite

    Get Thai'd! You're talking to a tourist
    Whose every move's among the purest
    I get my kicks above the waistline, sunshine

    One night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble
    Not much between despair and ecstasy
    One night in Bangkok and the tough guys tumble
    Can't be too careful with your company
    I can feel the devil walking next to me

    Siam's gonna be the witness
    To the ultimate test of cerebral fitness
    This grips me more than would a
    Muddy old river or reclining Buddha

    And thank God I'm only watching the game -- controlling it --

    I don't see you guys rating
    The kind of mate I'm contemplating
    I'd let you watch, I would invite you
    But the queens we use would not excite you

    So you better go back to your bars, your temples, your massage
    parlours --

    One night in Bangkok and the world's your oyster
    The bars are temples but the pearls ain't free
    You'll find a god in every golden cloister
    A little flesh, a little history
    I can feel an angel sliding up to me

    One night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble
    Not much between despair and ecstasy
    One night in Bangkok and the tough guys tumble
    Can't be too careful with your company
    I can feel the devil walking next to me
