The IPA Podcast: In Conversation with Richard Shotton

“Great, new book.”

“I’ve noticed a few people reading it on public transport so …obviously it’s selling. Brilliant!”

“I absolutely recommend it for anyone who is yet to get hold of a copy … It’s crammed with real examples… a great book, warmly recommend everyone to get a copy of it.”

“The book has an additional benefit… it is very readable with lots of bite sized sections.”
