    Not another picture of Martin, now to be staring at us from bookshops everywhere.:eek:

    I'm only replying to this to avoid thinking about walking round the world in loops and infinite numbers. Numbers are man made anyway so perhaps they don't exist and we shouldn't worry about how many there are because we make the boundaries (we not including me)?

    Well Martin, first of all, great on the update of the book, especially as I've only had mine for a couple of months! Cheers!
    Secondly, how on earth do you write 7000 words a day? I am writing an MA dissertation of 20000 words (on Victorian Manchester by the way) and if I could do 7000 in a day I would be ecstatic. I'm lucky to get a couple of hundred. I hate you.

    The difference gabbialice is when i write in the book often everything i need is already in my head, so its purely a question of writing it as opposed to dissertation writing which involves huge research. I've spent years doing the research already so in a way Im cheating :)

    Really looking forward to the piece about the 'Adversarial Consumer Society' and the philosophy behind money saving.

    I've had more run ins that most on the forums around what I see as the negative aspects of money saving (members lambasting greedy banks and retailers, while making profits from stoozing or selling goods at big profit on Ebay) and it will be good to hear your thoughts if it survives the editors cuts.

    Congrats on the TV show too.

    Smile :), it makes people wonder what you have been up to.
