After reading all the comments, had to order the book, https://www.eichlers.com/aleph-shin-ten-lost-2-in-1-volume-hardcover.html

Funny, without meaning to, you helped me find where it’s in stock! Thanks!

Don't forget to also read Samson's Lion, which is another version of Aleph Shin
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

The book is only half as interesting as the author himself. He is both a Dayan and a State Judge, and a fascinating author of novels and seforim in his spare time.
He also wrote another book which I found very interesting. “Every Man a Slave”
I've read the book many years ago.

Very different and Interesting

I saw Alef Shin/Ten Lost in Judaica Plaza (Lakewood) last week.

His books on slavery were titles Every Man a Slave, and the sequel was Gone West.

I heard that the author is an avid gun enthusiast and owns a gun collection. He talks about different guns throughout Alef Shin/Ten Lost.

TBH, he goes into rigorous detail throughout the book, not only regarding guns. All the martial arts moves, the exact names and models of the technological devices used, etc......

All maps and diagrams were removed for the Ten Lost edition.

He also made a bunch of random and arbitrary changes between the editions which kinda annoyed me. Why change the Iranian guy's name, for example? That's just confusing.

I doubt whether I'll end up reading it, I usually avoid all fiction books/novels etc.

Though I must say the video of the lecture posted above does intrigue me (and might belong in a different thread which is now locked ;)), but even running it at 2x speed is too long for me to consume in a single uninterrupted sitting.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!
