Welcome to my website. I post columns, reviews, articles, blogs
and links here, and you can find details about me and my books.
Supporting Rational Optimism
I have donated roughly half of the advance royalty received for
my book The Rational Optimist to two charities (here and
here) that are
helping those in need, especially in Africa, to trade, farm and
innovate. If you like The Rational Optimist and are
feeling generous, please take a look at their work.
I also support small local charitable causes in south-east
Northumberland through the Ridley Family Charity.
