*Pinned post* – The ongoing book tour, and where to buy David Fleming’s books

by Shaun Chamberlin on December 7th, 2016

Lean Logic and Surviving the Future - book tour

After all the hard work, my late mentor’s astonishing books are now available.

There’s nothing I’m prouder to have been involved with, but several readers, understandably keen to avoid Amazon, mentioned that it wasn’t easy to find the books elsewhere online. So I’ve created a new, straightforward page with all you need.

Just look under “Order the books” at this link
(for books or e-books, delivered anywhere in the world)
