"A speech by Mr Chavez cited Chomsky's 2003 critique of US policy, Hegemony or Survival: America's Quest for Global Dominance, as an "excellent book".It's a sort of lefty micro-version of the phenomenon that is Oprah recommending books and them subsequently hitting the bestseller list.
Mr Chavez also said US President George W Bush was the "devil" who had left the UN podium smelling of "sulphur".
Chomsky's book spent the weekend at the top of Amazon.com's bestseller list."
If there's anyone out there who has bought a copy as a result of Mr Chavez's recommendation, could you kindly pop into the comments boxes and explain yourself please?
"There's also a pop-up version..."
