FREE: Extract of Paddy

Aurum Press, the publishers of Paddy Ashdown’s bestselling autobiography A Fortunate Life, have released a chapter of the book for free download.

It’s called 1983 – The Winning of Yeovil, and as I wrote in 2009:

MP also stands for Military Precision, so it’s no surprise that Paddy Ashdown’s campaign to become MP for Yeovil was long on discipline and short on creature comforts.

If you haven’t packed a book for the train to Conference yet, 1983 – The Winning of Yeovil is vital reading for all Liberal Democrat campaigners. And as is typical of the Chair of the Party’s 2015 General Election campaign, Paddy has plenty to inspire and inform, as well as entertain.

So how did Paddy do it? Download the free e-book to your Kindle or Kindle reading app (available for PC, Mac, iphone, ipad and Android), and discover the roles of technology, rhubarb wine and “Clarissa”.

    From the headline, I was rather hoping someone had developed a new miracle product that would cure my lethargy and indecisiveness.

    This e-book could be the next best thing, Peter? ;-)
