Sam difference[edit]

..differences between the American and British versions are that the title was translated My Book in the UK and My Book in America; and that...

Presumably one of these titles is wrong. All the best: Rich Farmbrough13:59, 5 December 2014 (UTC).

Hitler's dictation of Mein Kampf[edit]

Regarding the claim that Hitler dictated Mein Kampf, which I just removed from the lead, please see this story in the Times Literary Supplement: "Contrary to popular myth, the first version was not dictated but typed." FreeKnowledgeCreator (talk) 01:22, 16 September 2016 (UTC)

A good spot there. However, the question remains, did H do the actual typing or was it Hess? There has been a previous discussion on this and it won't shatter my world if der fuhrer banged it out on an old Adler. I'm happy with the revision but any other thoughts on this by colleagues? I am intrigued by the mention of a few remaining pages of original manuscript. Do we know if there are any images of these that we can use? Irondome (talk) 01:42, 16 September 2016 (UTC)
The claim that Hitler dictated Mein Kampf had already been removed by an IP, but I restored it. Discovering another source claiming that Hitler did not in fact dictate Mein Kampf made me reconsider. We certainly don't want to include the claim that Hitler dictated the book, or in fact any claim about how the book was produced, unless it can be properly supported.

Should reality be controled by your whishes?[edit]

Dear editors, here I present a simple FYI, before changing the word "Book", for "Bestseller".

Please be so kind as to try understand that reality is the state or quality of being real. Reality is something that exists independently of ideas concerning it. If you hate "Mein Kampf", it does not give you the right to change reality.

If I state: "Mein Kampf is a bestseller", this statement is real if - and only if -it reflects the reality, if does not reflects what is real, the statement is false.

Isn't that idea simple?

For this logical reason, the explanation that "bestseller" and "book" do not mean the same thing., does not justify to ignore the reality that The Bible and Mein Kampf are, BOTH, bestsellers. Both books are included in the same category.

PS. If a book sells billions of copies, it does not mean that the ideas inside the bestseller are purified. Bad or good ideas don't change if thousands of brain-washed reader buy the book.

Can anybody give me a good reason why reality should be ignored when I don't like read what is real? Dr. LooTalk to me 01:08, 24 October 2016 (UTC)

Sorry, but I find the final sentence of that totally unintelligible, and that makes it tough to take the rest seriously. Changing "book" to "bestseller" is not a helpful or constructive change, but if you want to find some other way of indicating that Mein Kampf was a bestseller, and can properly cite that claim, that's fine.
