As eagle-eyed readers of this blog will have spotted, a large part of its point is to (gently) encourage readers to order copies of my book Struck Out, which is available from various publishers in a surprisingly neat inverse relationship to the ethical content of the publishing business.
In the superbly pro-union Bookmarks, Struck Out can be ordered for an admittedly steep £19.99.
The publishers Pluto are offering the book for £17.50 (see link at the top right-hand corner of the page).
The anti-union capitalist megabusiness Amazon are selling a kindle version for just £13.67.
But while Amazon is (sadly) the cheapest option if you’re looking to buy the book, I’m happy to report that Bookmarks (here’s the link again are also offering for just £3, a CD of my talk with Dave Smith at this year’s Marxism festival, which conveys a decent chunk (although not all) of the book’s message as well as some lively contributions including from one or two widely-celebrated tribunal claimants who were in the room.
If you’re interested, just send Bookmarks an email.
