I can't help wondering who gets the royalties, It also says BBC on the cover, do I benefit as a licence payer?

Yes you do. You benefit from the knowledge once you read the book.
I have voted hot as the price is good and that's what this is about.
I was a bit negative, sorry about that but I prefer a more reliable source.
I have recently read and can recommend Jared Diamond's, Guns Germs and steel ( a short history of everybody for the last 13.000 years)
James C scott's Against The Grain and David Graeber's Debt, the first 5000 years

What makes those you have listed more reliable (genuine question as I am tempted by the book)?
These things are always subjective, How much freedom to go ' off message ' a BBC employee has working within the ethos of a media organisation compared to an academic I can't say.

Give it a try for only 99p.

From what I remember of this book (having bought it ages ago at 99p) it's mainly fact based, not the author's opinion or pet theories of how events came to pass. As such I would say it's quite reliable.
Such an obnoxious and pompous journalist. I wouldn't read anything he wrote if I was stranded on a desert island and this was the only reading matter.

Don’t you mean the other chap from Scotland “Andrew Neil”? Either way they give politicians what for & that’s no bad thing in my book.

I don't mind him as I think deep down he knows he is a twonk. Interrupting all the time and being a jerk in front of camera let's slippery politicians off the hook. David Frost is sadly missed.
