Around The World In Wonder Socks




Eleven days ago I received three proof copies of my book for final approval. I am very happy to announce the final hurdle has now been successfully cleared. This morning I took delivery of 50 copies of  catalogue number ISBN 9781514758861, better known as Around The World In Wonder Socks. Published at last!

The book’s UK launch will be in my home town of Rhyl on Friday, September 4th. However, it is available to buy now as a printed book or in downloadable Kindle format from Amazon. If you are in the UK just click on  Around The World In Wonder Socks (UK)   for those of you in Australia and the rest of the world click on Around The World In Wonder Socks (AUS)

I have a busy schedule of author talks and radio and newspaper interviews lined up in the UK throughout September. At the end of the month I’ll be heading back to Australia for more of the same.

For those of you who followed my journey through this blog I would like to say a big thank you for your support. As a token of my gratitude I want to to make you a special offer. If you order either a print or kindle version of the book and don’t thoroughly enjoy it let me know by October 1st and I will refund the full cover price, no questions asked (postage not included).*

There is also a new website/blog dedicated to the book which will include reviews, news updates and details of how to read or hear interviews. Please take a look and subscribe for updates by clicking on and then hitting the Follow button.

My first review is in, it’s by John Simpson, Britain’s best known TV correspondent. He wrote, “Many congratulations on a delightful book. When somebody has the courage to cut his ties with convention and the boring way of doings things, and writes about it with charm and wit, it’s likely to be worth reading. Your book is a joy and a delight, and I’d recommend it to anyone — whether they were in something of the same position or not. It’s the ultimate book of escape.’

If you do buy the book I really hope you have a fun time reading it. Please also write a review on Amazon, even just a few words, you’d be surprised how much it helps.

Thanks again and my very best wishes

    Hey Arfur, well done mate on finally finishing your book. I know it must have taken a long time with one finger typing all the way! As for spending a lot of hot air, you are just the man to do it…. congratulations mate and we can catch up when you get back and have a game for expelled golfers haha Brian

    • Thanks Brian. Yes, lots of typing but mostly with two fingers 😊 and now lots of air with my author talks.
      Shame about the golf but yes must have a game on my return.
