My book is finally out

Postby MB » Thu Feb 11, 2010 10:55 pm

My electric car book has finally made it out of the printers and into the shops. It's been a crazy couple of weeks getting everything sorted and there has been one or two hiccoughs along the way. It's all very exciting though and people are already buying it on Amazon, which is even better.

I've done some comparisons within the book between electric cars and petrol cars to demonstrate the difference in economy and environmental impact. This has got a lot of journalists quite excited. ITN have been doing some filming in the past few days ready for a special report later on this month and the book is also going to be covered by at least one national newspaper.

It seems that there is now genuine interest in electric vehicles and people want to know more. If that is the case, it bodes well for the future of the Battery Vehicle Society. And yes, the BVS also gets plugged by my book - more than once.
My new book is out: The 2011 Electric Car Guide is available from Amazon and all good bookshops.

Great news Mike. Congratulations. I think we all here know that EVs will make it on to our roads there's barely a single car manufacturer now that isn't at least seriously looking to offer a hybrid and Renault Nissan seem to be the most likely to put genuine family electrics in the showrooms. Things are most definitely changing. Not too sure about the BVS though :?

Well done Mike & congratulations.
I am currently aiming to get a book published so I know what hoops you must have jumped through.
Best of luck with it & I'm off to Amazon now to order a copy.
