Since I wrote my first book in 1992, originally in Arabic and then translated to German. I have been trying to remove and stop certain publishers, especially American publishers namely Arcade publishing ( a bankrupt part of Time Warner) and now Skyhorse Publishing who bought the bankrupt Arcade publishing, from selling books that they attribute to me but that I have never given consent or authorisation to be published.
Happy holidays and season's greetings, as a gift to you I'm autographing all of my books for a limited time.
Due to a high demand for autographed copies of my books,and taking into account the amount that some of my previously autographed books are being offered for on Amazon and other sites (some being offered at 2,000 euros), my publisher has asked me to do something special for the holiday season. From now until December 18th, I will be signing copies of all my books at no extra cost, once it is purchased directly from my website (otherwise I won't get it to sign it). All books will be autographed to the buyer, if you wish the book to be autographed to someone else as a gift for example please email the publisher through their "contact us" form with the details of who you would like it made out to and the address it's to be sent to if different from the buyers.
Happy holidays and enjoy the festive season.
Best regards to all,
THE DEVIL’S DOUBLE:
is the first of three autobiographical books chronicling Latif Yahia’s incredible life-story. It vividly describes how Latif was forced to become Uday Hussein’s ‘fidai’ (body-double) and gives a unique insight into the extreme extravagance and cruelty of the Saddam regime. Latif survived assassination attempts and witnessed Uday’s psychotic temper, rapes, orgy parties, torture atrocities, and sadistic murders. The book has recently been made into a highly-acclaimed movie.
The Book the American CIA don't want you to read.
The Black Hole continues on from Latif Yahias' escape from Iraq and Uday Saddam Hussein to Europe. Finding himself in Vienna, Austria, Latif and his companion try to build a new life, but with the CIA never far away and the Iraqi Intelligence service under orders to assassinate him, his life is far from quiet.
Unlike The Devil's Double, The Black Hole was not held up in the American congress as a mirror to the tyranny that prevailed in Iraq or indeed the middle-east. Shining a bright light on the modus operandi of the CIA with regard to gathering intelligence, debriefing defectors and what actually happens when you say NO, it speaks loudly of the similarities between the methods of those at the top, whether they be Western or Middle-eastern. The Black Hole is banned from bookstores in Ireland and the USA.
Since the author, Latif Yahia left Iraq in 1992 he has been unable to attain citizenship from any Nation, having had his file in Iraq deleted he is neither Iraqi nor anything else, this has effectively rendered him stateless. His reward for standing up to the Hussein regime and speaking openly about his personal experiences with the CIA.
When you purchase The Devil's Double and The Black Hole books, we will send you the movie as a free gift (€19.99 value)
"A tiger doesn't lose sleep over the opinion of SHEEP."
In this video I answer the most popular questions that I have received through my website, emails and social media.
There are many perceptions of me, that I have made millions from my books and the movie, not true.
That since I fled Iraq my life has been safe, not true, either.. That the government of the country where I reside have provided me with protection and security, that's not true either, I have my own private security.
In my twenty one years in the West, I have not found democracy nor a country to call home and grant me citizenship, and so I am still stateless.
I could not and would not sell my soul, One man forced me to become something I wasn't and ruled my life, when I broke free of him I vowed never to be forced to do anything against my will again, be it by a single person or a country.
