What’s this book all about, then?

Is it available in North America yet?

Because we’re UK-based (and so is our publisher) the book has been released in Europe already but a special North American edition – with pounds and ounces instead of kilograms and grams – will be published just for you in March 2018. If you want a copy in time for Christmas, you could buy the UK version now and get it shipped over the pond, or purchase an ebook version. Or if you’re happy to wait for the special edition when it’s released next year, you can pre-order it now at your favourite book retailer or as a hardback, ebook or audiobook from¬†Amazon.¬†Just head on over to your bookstore or website of choice and it should be there.
